Baby's skin is very absorbent and sensitive, especially newborns and personally I only ever use gentle products on their skin and at almost 4 weeks I'm still using cotton wool and water on Isla. Bepanthen is a well known range when it comes to nappy ointments but they do other products too. The whole range is so gentle even on the sensitive skin of premature babies containing no fragrance, preservatives, colours or antiseptics.
When pregnant with Isla, I was sent some of the Bepanthen range to review ready for when she arrived. I was sent the Nappy Care Ointment, Baby Moisturiser and Baby Sun Cream.
Nappy Care Ointment
So gentle it can be used at every nappy change, even of the highly sensitives skin of premature babies, as it contains no fragrance, preservatives, colours or antiseptics. It forms a long lasting, breathable transparent layer, protecting even the most delicate skin from the causes of nappy rash. £3.99
This is a product I used on Jack when he was younger, and one of I've found myself using on Isla. Isla is suffering terribly with a nappy rash at the moment, as I found most newborns often do. This ointment is helping to sooth the rash in between changes and it doesn't seem as fierce as it did.
Formulated to be gentle and very mild. With a neutral pH it can even be used on babies with extra sensitive skin or common skincare problems such as eczema or dermatitis. RRP £5.99
The moisturiser is for extra sensitive skin and suitable for use on newborn skin. The moisturiser itself is quite thick yet surprisingly easy to rub into the skin as it absorbs really well. We have been using this on Isla's feet as they are extremely dry and after applying they don't feel sticky or greasy like skin can do after applying some creams. I've also used this more widely spread on Jack and it seems to improve his skin too so a product I would definitely recommend.
Baby Sun Cream
Designed specifically to help you protect your baby's delicate skin with 50+SPF whilst still being free from parabens colour, fragrance and preservatives so that you and your little one can enjoy the summer sun. £9.99
This isn't a product I have used yet on Isla, but I have give it a go on Jack for the purpose of the review.There are clear instructions of how to use printed upon the tube. I found the cream easy to rub into his skin, being quickly absorbed and leaving behind no residue. It didn't cause any reaction to his sensitive skin so I would have no problem applying it on Isla when she is a little older. The tube is an ideal size to pack within your bag for use when out and about as it needs to be applied every 1-2 hours.
These products, in fact all of the Bepanthen range would be products I would be happy to recommend to other products. They are perfect for sensitive skin.
