Diaprex Diaper Rash Ointment is a hypoallergenic formulation used as a moisturizer to treat or prevent:
- Dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin
- Minor skin irritations
- Diaper rash
- Heat rash
- Skin burns from radiation therapy
Diaprex Diaper Rash Ointment uses only USP grade ingredients of the utmost quality and is exclusively manufactured in a laboratory-tested FDA-compliant environment where consistency, safety and integrity share equal responsibility as Diaprex’s highest priorities.
Diaprex incorporates two active ingredients; zinc oxide and white petrolatum that together act to create a potent barrier between your Baby’s skin and the moisture, urine, and stool found in the diaper area. Healthy skin barrier function is essential for the prevention and treatment of diaper rash.
Skin also needs the proper amount of hydration to be healthy. Dry skin is caused by a loss of hydration (water) in the upper layers of the skin. To maintain hydration, Diaprex incorporates a complex of 3 natural emollients (lanolin USP, beeswax, and castor oil) called S?the. Emollients are substances that soften and moisturize the skin while decrease itching and flaking. S?the helps your baby’s skin achieve and maintain healthy hydration levels.
And lastly, Balsam Peru is a natural fragrance which gives Diaprex a pleasant smell. Balsam of Peru is not only used for its aromatic properties but also for its mild antiseptic, antifungal and antiparasitic attributes. It has 3 main uses: fragrance in toiletries; flavoring in food and drink; healing properties in medicinal products.
The Diaprex Diaper Rash Ointment story spans generations of Mom’s and their babies. The story begins over 50 years ago with the inventor of the product, Belle Moss, a pharmacist at Detroit’s Children’s Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. Diaprex is the brand trusted by moms and physicians to gently protect and heal the delicate skin of babies. Diaprex quickly became the favorite Diaper Rash Ointment in the midwest. It has been, and remains a beloved brand for generations of moms, dads, and physicians for their loved ones and patients.
Belle Moss formulated Diaprex decades ago. Regional physicians and pediatricians rapidly endorsed the formula, making Diaprex the number one recommended diaper ointment for decades. It became a local and regional favorite, but as time went by, the product slowly vanished from the market.
Fast forward to 2008 when Michael Froehlich, President and CEO of Elba Laboratories, discovered the brand had ceased to exist on store shelves and began researching the product. Upon discovering that the brand name and original formula were available, he began preparing and packaging Diaprex once again for consumer use. Michael says “We were fielding calls from hundreds of families who knew we had manufactured the product in the past, which put me in a conundrum of deciding to do nothing or figuring out a way to have Elba Laboratories make the Diaprex product for people who were searching for the product they loved and trusted.”
Soon, the letters and testimonials began flowing in from mothers, grandmothers, and even men, who all expressed similar sentiments: “I was a Diaprex baby!” and “There really is nothing on the market like Diaprex!” and “This is the only product that truly works for diaper rash and wound healing.” Froehlich often receives messages from excited callers who are overjoyed to rediscover the source of Diaprex because they have literally been searching for this product for over a decade.
