Experience the healing relief of Calmoseptine Ointment. This cream calms skin discomfort and itching. Developed by a pharmacist for diaper rash, it protects and heals skin damage due to rashes, burns, and minor wounds. Its blend of ingredients creates a moisture barrier while both nourishing and soothing the skin.
Calmoseptine cream contains zinc oxide, which protects damaged skin by keeping fluids, solids, air, and toxins away. Wounded cells absorb some of the zinc, using it to repair themselves. The cream also has menthol, which acts as a calming agent, bringing relief to irritated cells. Glycerin in the cream helps drain extra fluid from inflamed tissues and membranes. Three components have antiseptic properties that keep germs and bacteria out. Two are antifungal, preventing growth. Two calm itches, while one acts as a deodorizer.
A study done in the Philippine General Hospital found that patients treated with Calmoseptine Barrier Cream healed at a faster rate than those treated with another product. Case studies show that this ointment helps treat conditions such as:
- Diaper Rash
- Yeast Infections
- Bed Sores
- Itching Rashes
- Insect Bites.
This moisture barrier ointment also protects skin from incontinence, feeding tube site leakage, and wound drainage.

How does The Ointment work?
