The Aquaphor Healing Ointment is designed to treat skin that has become dry and cracked from all of the exposure to water, hand soap, hand sanitizer, extreme cold and also from being outside in the elements. This is a great product to have in your first aid kit because it can also be used for many different purposes than just cracked and chapped skin.

The ointment comes in a tube that has a nice and big area in the open end. The cap is a twist-lock type that some people might have a problem with because it doesn't have a zero-leak design, meaning it is difficult to get it off without causing a mess on the table or skin. Another downside to this product is that it is not preservative or fragrance free, which happens quite frequently with most products on the market these days.

The Aquaphor Healing Ointment works on all types of skin, from children to adults. The ointment restores smooth, healthy skin while providing a protective barrier to prevent water evaporation.

Aquaphor is an effective first aid solution for many maladies, including skin care. It is also effective for baby diaper rash. Thanks to its high moisture content, it can plump up the skin to make it more comfortable and also brings down the itchiness.

One popular use of the Aquaphor Healing Ointment is in the diaper area. When you have a baby, you are much more prone to get diaper rash because you will be changing them more often and they will be in contact with their diaper more often. What this means is that you will also be in contact with the area and if the diaper area is dry and cracked, then you will get diaper rash. It covers up the area and it will prevent the area from getting any worse.

All in all, the Healing Ointment is one of the best baby cream creams that you can use. It can be a great addition to your first aid kit. This is a great product to have around as long as you use it correctly.
