Moisturizer Type Creams are gentle, but often not as protective for a baby’s sensitive skin as they could be.
Barrier Ointments are more effective at protecting a baby from acidic waste, but they are difficult to remove, and tend to be “goopy”, with a strong odor.
The gastrointestinal waste from a baby can be more acidic than that of older children or adults. This acidic waste output can be very irritating on a child’s naturally sensitive skin.
Most diaper creams are very difficult to remove, resulting in a lot of excessive wiping on the baby’s skin. If the skin is already irritated, this can significantly increase your baby’s discomfort.
Zinc oxide is a common ingredient in many diaper rash creams because it’s thick and water insoluble. However, since zinc oxide is extremely thick and goopy, zinc oxide-based diaper rash creams are often messy and difficult to wipe off a child.
The base ingredients to Dr. Mom Butt Balm® are breathable. They create a protective barrier for baby’s skin while still allowing the skin to breathe, and moisture to get through as needed.
This makes it easier to wipe off, and not hurt when it goes on or off.
The formula for Dr. Mom Butt Balm® includes Dimethicone because its silky texture makes it gentle as you wipe on and off. The smooth texture of dimethicone also helps prevent the diaper from sticking to the baby’s skin.
