Ben’s Bees Beeswax Nappy Rash Cream
Loving parents knows how important it is to use natural products wherever possible when it comes to their kids, but sometimes this can be tough when the supermarket aisles are full of chemical-based solutions to skin ailments. Let’s take a closer look. Babies’ skin actually absorbs and loses moisture much more quickly than adults’ coarser skin; therefore, it is thinner, less supple and less strong than your own. The skin on an infant also hasn’t developed the barriers that more mature skin has, which means that whatever comes in contact with it is actually absorbed into the child’s bloodstream more quickly than on a grown adult. Now, no parent wants to rub heavy metals and chemicals straight onto their child, so let’s take a look outside the confines of the supermarket shelf for a safe and baby-friendly option for that number one skin nightmare: nappy rash!
As a father of three beautiful kids, I am the first to recommend Ben’s Bees Beeswax Nappy Rash Cream. It is a gentle formula that uses high-quality natural ingredients to relieve your baby’s sensitive skin. A combination of moisturising shea butter, sweet smelling coconut oil, vitamin E, zinc oxide powder, bentonite clay and my much-loved beeswax, this soothing cream is mild and healing on nappy rash and other skin ailments.
So, why is beeswax such an effective agent in skin care products? Beeswax is a natural wax made by our friend, the honey bee. It is formed into scales from eight wax-producing glands in the abdominal sections of female workers, who discard the wax in the hive. Hive workers then collect and use the wax to form cells for honey storage and larvae protection. Chemically speaking, beeswax is made mainly of esters of fatty acids and various long-chain alcohols. Beeswax also has an inherent antibacterial property, meaning that is works hard to keep things clean and reduces the risks of contamination. This makes it a wonderful ingredient for skin treatments, salves and balms, as it naturally deflects nasties. What’s more, it is also said to have antifungal qualities that may prevent the growth of yeast and other fungi! Need I say more?
And beeswax isn’t the only goodie that makes up Ben’s Bees Beeswax Nappy Rash Cream. All of the natural ingredients in this product are super safe and nurturing for your child, and there are no hidden chemicals with unknown side effects. As a loving parent, you can feel happy and secure that your baby’s sensitive skin will remain moisturised and protected with this soothing solution.
