What is Sudocrem?

What is Sudocrem?

Sudocrem has been helping to soothe sore skin for almost 80 years. The market leader in the treatment of Diaper Rash, it’s used by mums, dads and healthcare professionals everywhere.

Unlike some Diaper Rash products on the market, Sudocrem Diaper Rash cream is a licensed medicine, which means we’ve had to submit clinical data proving that Sudocrem is an effective and safe treatment.

Sudocrem’s clinically proven to soothe, heal and protect your baby’s delicate skin and works in three ways:

  • A water-repellent base forms a protective barrier, helping to stop any irritants (urine and faeces) coming into contact with the skin.
  • It both softens and soothes sore, inflamed skin.
  • It has a weak local anaesthetic to help ease pain and irritation.

So what gives Sudocrem its healing properties? Here’s the science bit:

Sudocrem contains:

  • hypoallergenic lanolin, to help soothe and soften irritated skin.
  • zinc oxide which reduces the loss of tissue fluid.
  • benzyl benzoate and benzyl cinnamate which are ingredients of Balsam of Peru, recognised for its healing properties.
  • benzyl alcohol, a weak local anaesthetic which eases pain and also acts as a disinfectant/antibacterial agent.

As a protective antiseptic cream, Sudocrem is also helpful in the treatment of other skin conditions. You can buy Sudocrem from independent pharmacies, major pharmacy chains, supermarkets and selected children's department stores.

Always read the label.
