Combining the synergistic benefits of best five ingredients

Diaper rash is a very common condition that can cause a baby's skin to become sore, red and tender.  Irritant diaper dermatitis, also known as "diaper dermatitis" or "napkin dermatitis“ and commonly known as diaper rash or nappy rash, is a generic term applied to skin rashes in the diaper area that are caused by various skin disorders and/or irritants.

It is noticed in other parts of a baby's body, too, as a common form of inflamed skin (dermatitis) that appears as a patchwork of bright red skin on the baby's bottom. Diaper rash can alarm parents and annoy babies.

Diaper rash is the most common dermatitis found in infancy. Prevalence has been variably reported from 4-35% in the first 2 years of life. Incidence triples in babies with diarrhea. It is not unusual for every child to have at least 1 episode of diaper rash by the time he or she is toilet-trained.

Because fewer than 10% of all diaper rashes are reported by the family, the actual incidence of this condition is likely underestimated.

The incidence is lower among breastfed infants—perhaps due to the less acidic nature of their urine and stool. Babies wearing superabsorbent disposable diapers with a central gelling material have fewer episodes of diaper dermatitis compared with their counterparts wearing cloth diapers.

The precise etiology of most diaper rashes is not clearly defined. They likely result from a combination of factors that includes wetness, friction, urine and feces, and the presence of microorganisms. Anatomically, this skin region features numerous folds and creases, which present a problem with regard to both efficient cleansing and control of the microenvironment.

The main irritants in this situation are fecal proteases and lipases, whose activity is increased greatly by elevated pH. An acidic skin surface is also essential for the maintenance of the normal microflora, which provides innate antimicrobial protection against invasion by pathogenic bacteria and yeasts. Fecal lipase and protease activity is also greatly increased by acceleration of gastrointestinal transit; this is the reason for the high incidence of irritant diaper dermatitis observed in babies who have had diarrhea in the previous 48 hours.

The wearing of diapers causes a significant increase in skin wetness and pH. Prolonged wetness leads to maceration (softening) of the stratum corneum, the outer, protective layer of the skin, which is associated with extensive disruption of intercellular lipid lamellae. A series of diaper studies conducted mainly in the late 1980s found a significant decrease in skin hydration following the introduction of diapers with a superabsorbent core.  Recent studies confirm that this trend is ongoing. Weakening of its physical integrity makes the stratum corneum more susceptible to damage by (1) friction from the surface of the diaper and (2) local irritants.


The normal pH of the skin is between 4.5 and 5.5. When urea from the urine and stool mix, urease breaks down the urine, decreasing the hydrogen ion concentration (increasing pH). Elevated pH levels increase the hydration of the skin and make the skin more permeable.

Causes of diaper rash can be traced to a number of sources, including:

Irritation from stool and urine - Prolonged exposure to urine or feces can irritate a baby's sensitive skin. Your baby may be more prone to diaper rash if he or she is experiencing frequent bowel movements because feces are more irritating than urine.

Introduction of new foods - As babies start to eat solid foods, the content of their stool changes, increasing the likelihood of diaper rash. Changes in your baby's diet can also increase the frequency of stools, which can lead to diaper rash. If your baby is breast-feeding, your baby may develop diaper rash in response to something the mother has eaten.

Irritation from a new product - Disposable wipes, a new brand of disposable diapers, or a detergent, bleach or fabric softener used to launder cloth diapers can all irritate your baby's delicate bottom. Other substances that can add to the problem include ingredients found in some baby lotions, powders and oils.

Bacterial or yeast (fungal) infection - What begins as a simple skin infection may spread to the surrounding region. The area covered by a diaper — buttocks, thighs and genitals — is especially vulnerable because it's warm and moist, making a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and yeast. These rashes can be found within the creases of the skin, and there may be red dots scattered around the creases.

Sensitive skin - Babies with skin conditions, such as atopic dermatitis or eczema, may be more likely to develop diaper rashes. However, the irritated skin of atopic dermatitis and eczema primarily affects areas other than the diaper area.

Chafing or rubbing - Tight fitting diapers or clothing that rubs against the skin can lead to a rash.

Use of antibiotics - Antibiotics kill bacteria — the good kinds as well as the bad. When a baby takes antibiotics, bacteria that keep yeast growth in check may be depleted, resulting in diaper rash due to yeast infection. Moreover, all the babies whose breast-feeding mothers are on antibiotics are also susceptible.

Identifying a diaper rash is usually easy. The rash is located on skin underneath the diaper area. Sometimes the rash might go up onto the baby’s tummy and bottom. Some areas of skin might be raised or swollen, and there might be some ulcers. Diaper rash is characterized by the following:

Skin signs - Diaper rash is marked by red, puffy and tender-looking skin in the diaper region — buttocks, thighs and genitals. It may appear all over baby's bottom or genital area, or only in certain places.

Changes in baby's disposition - It is noticed that baby seems more uncomfortable than usual, especially during diaper changes. A baby with a diaper rash often fusses or cries when the diaper area is washed or touched.

What is the Management of Diaper Rash?

Self-Care at Home

Home treatment includes some of the follows:

  • Wash and dry baby’s bottom at each change.
  • Change baby’s nappy, frequently.
  • If the baby’s nappy is wet, use warm water to clean.
  • If the baby’s nappy is dirty, use a soap substitute to clean. rinse off thoroughly.
  • Have nappy-free times so the skin is exposed to air.
  • If using cloth nappies, then make sure that they are rinsed thoroughly to remove all traces of detergent, and dry in direct sunlight, rather than in clothes dryer.
  • If using cloth nappies, consider changing to disposable nappies for a while because these keep wetness away from the baby’s skin more effectively.
  • Avoid tight-fitting, plastic over-pants because these make the area warm and moist, which is ideal for fungal growth.

Medical Treatment

Skin Barrier products – The best approach in the management of diaper rash is to block the moisture from reaching the skin, and is the most commonly recommended remedies. Rather, we say that it is “First choice of therapyin the management of diaper rash. A skin barrier product helps to treat and prevent diaper rash.


It is a very agreed fact that prevention is always better than cure. Diaper rash can be prevented by using the best self care practices at home followed by regular usage of skin barriers or protectants.

Cure with Almond baby Skin care cream

What are its ingredients?

Almond Oil

Almond oil is a 100% natural and is obtained from dried almonds through a process known as cold pressing. Almond oil is light delicate non-greasy oil that is a natural emollient (skin softener) suitable for the most delicate of skin types. It is an excellent choice of moisturizer, skin nutrient and massage oil for baby skin.

Almond oil is rich in Vitamin E, B and K as well as essential minerals (magnesium, calcium), healthy fatty acids (mostly of glycerides of oleic acid and linoleic acid) plant fatty alcohols (phytosterols) and protein which moistures and hydrates dry, itchy skin. It is widely used as a skin care product but can be used in the treatment of some skin disorders as well.

This is a major source of vitamin E, which is an important vitamin needed by skin. Alpha-tocopherol is the kind of vitamin E, human body absorbs best, and it is considered the most important antioxidant and free-radical scavenger. Vitamin E is frequently labeled as a skin food because it nourishes skin and makes it healthy. Vitamin E accumulates in cell membranes & contributes to antioxidant defenses.

Fatty Acids in almond oil are essential to cellular membranes. Topically applied fatty acids are metabolized in the skin, normalizing the cell lipid layer and improving the water-retention capability. Plant fatty alcohols in almond oil when applied to skin, form an occlusive film to keep skin moisture from evaporating, and they impart a velvety feel to the skin.

Benefits can be summarized as follows -

  • Smoothes and softens skin.
  • Moisturizes better and deeper.
  • Relief from dry and itchy skin.
  • Soothes skin irritation and inflammation.
  • Nourishes the skin.
  • Reduces skin irritation - Skin irritation, such as itching and swelling, can also be reduced with almond oil.

Zinc Oxide

Zinc oxide is the active ingredient in most of the diaper rash creams. It is quite effective, especially in prevention, because it has both a drying and an astringent effect on the skin, being mildly antiseptic without causing irritation. It is known as a topical skin product which is used as a protective coating for mild skin irritations and abrasions.

White Vaseline (Petrolatum)

Petrolatum is recognized by the U.S. FDA as an approved OTC skin protectant in skin care. It reduces the moisture loss from the skin surface by forming a barrier which prevents wetness from coming in contact with the skin. It reduces the friction between skin and clothing. It is particularly helpful for the type of rash called intertrigo, which is an irritation in the skin folds caused by skin rubbing against itself.

Liquid Paraffin

It is on the skin and provides a barrier film that reduces/prevents the epidermal water loss from the outermost layer of the skin to the environment. Liquid paraffin is used to soothe, smooth and hydrate the skin from any irritation. It rejuvenates dry and sensitive skin by restoring the skin’s natural suppleness and healthy glow. It is suitable for use with atopic eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, scaly skin, winter itch and other dry dermatological conditions.


Lanolin resembles the sebaceous secretions of human skin. It is very effective in moist healing environment as it creates optimal environment for the skin to heal.

It forms protective barrier due to its emollient property, which helps to seal out irritating wetness and promotes natural healing. It forms an oily layer on the top of the skin that traps water in the skin. Also, lanolin has water repellant and anti-bacterial qualities. It is very effective in sealing out germs and moisture. It is used as a moisturizer to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin and minor skin irritation. (e.g. diaper rash).
