Neat Feat develops new BabyB Diaper Rash Cream
LOS ANGELES — Neat Feat has announced the launch of its new BabyB Diaper Rash Cream.
According to the manufacturer, what sets BabyB Diaper Rash Cream apart is that it’s a preventive cream — treating the cause of the rash, not just the symptom, and restoring the normal environment of the skin so the rash can’t be sustained. It inhibits growth of fungi that contributes to skin irritation and reduces excess moisture, promoting a more natural Ph balance for the skin.
Developed over the past four years by doctors and tested by midwives, BabyB is fragrance-free, contains moisturizers and emollients that are gentle to the skin, the company stated.
BabyB Baby Saver Cream is part of Neat Feat’s new Body Saver range and is available nationally through Walgreens stores. The suggested retail price is $6.95.
