A crucial part of preventing nappy rash is to use a barrier cream such as BeeBaby Natural Bum Bum Balm with Manuka Honey, which gently moisturises, soothes and protects your baby’s bottom. This Kiwi-made baby balm is 100% free from harmful ingredients and is specially formulated with natural, nourishing ingredients like Manuka Honey Extract and Beeswax, which help speed up the recovery of irritated skin and protect against infection.
While all honey generally has an antibacterial effect, Manuka Honey has particularly high levels of a special chemical compound called methylglyoxal (MGO). The higher the levels of MGO, the stronger the antibacterial effect. And unlike other antibiotics, it seems that MGO doesn’t cause bacterial resistance, which is bad news for superbugs that cause dangerous infections!
