A big thank you from both me and my 2 month old daughter for your Diaper Distress Cream: what a life-saver!- Cherie and Baby Lauren
What is Diaper Distress Cream?
Diaper Distress Cream is a wonderfully healing cream to protect and soothe the skin in the diaper area. Diaper Distress Cream is formulated with natural herbal and aroma-therapeutic ingredients to safely and effectively support the health of your baby’s skin, without unwanted side effects, as it is 100% natural and herbal.
Diaper Distress Cream is formulated to the highest therapeutic standards and manufactured under strict pharmaceutical conditions, in consultation with experts in the field of natural health, using natural ingredients specially chosen for their safety and effectiveness.
Keep baby bottoms healthy
The skin in the diaper area often needs extra help. Constantly being covered by a diaper and coming into contact with urine and feces can challenge the health of any skin – especially soft and sensitive baby skin. The moist and enclosed environment inside a diaper as well as the friction between the skin and diaper material can cause the tender skin in the diaper area to become vulnerable unless proper care is taken.
The natural way
There are several things you can do to care for and protect the skin on your baby’s bottom, including at-home care and prevention and the integration of natural and homeopathic remedies for natural skin support.
Changing your baby's diaper often and allowing the skin to dry completely before putting on a new diaper can help. Using a properly-fitting diaper is very important, keeping it loose enough to allow air to circulate.
Natural sunlight and fresh air are very beneficial to the diaper area (don't overdo the sun though). Also remember to avoid harsh soaps, baby wipes, or fragranced products.
There are many natural ingredients that have a long history of use in the care and protection of the skin – and which are safe and effective for babies

How long until I see results?
Baby's skin will be nourished and soothed from the first application, with a protective barrier being built up with each application thereafter.
How long will a bottle last?
