The water-in-oil formulation seals in the skins natural moisture by forming a transparent breathable layer to provide optimal conditions and allows gentle skin recovery without drying out your baby's sensitive skin, keeping it healthy and hydrated. Bepanthen® can also be used to help soothe and protect cracked nipples before and during breastfeeding. Pro-vitamin B5 dexpanthenol. Clinically proven. Soothes & repairs. Lanolin protection barrier. Nappy care ointment. Soothes, repairs and protects your baby's sensitive skin. New. Easy-to-use tube. Also available in 3.5g and 30g. Tel: (011) 921 5000. Composition: Bepanthen® contains as active substance dexpanthenol, the alcohol corresponding to pantothenic acid. The ointment contains 50mg/g dexpanthenol. How does dexpanthenol work? Promotes the formation and functioning of epithelial tissues. Dexpanthenol exerts the same action as pantothenic acid, to which it is converted in the body. The alcohol nevertheless has the advantage of better absorption, a particularly useful property in the case of local application. A factor of the Vitamin B complex, pantothenic acid is required by the body for the synthesis of co-enzyme A. This co-enzyme plays an important part in the intermediary metabolism, and above all in synthetic processes. It activates the otherwise torpid acetic acid and this contributes to the formation of fatty acids, cholesterol, citric acid and acetylcholine. It further promotes the acetylation of exogenous substances and thus the process of detoxification. Uses: Retains the integrity of chafed, dry, cracked or split skin. Regular breast care in nursing mothers and soothing of sore or cracked nipples. Infant care: soothes, protects and repair nappy (diaper) rash. Promotion of regeneration of skin in minor injuries (e.g. minor burns and scrapes), skin irritations, chronic decubitus (bedsores) ulcers, anal fissures, skin grafts and cervical erosions off-day and follow-up usage for patients treated with corticosteroids. Who should not use Bepanthen®? Bepanthen® ointment must not be used by persons known to be hypersensitive to any of its ingredients. Identification: Ointment: homogenous, opaque, slightly yellowish ointment.
