Last week, Gwen developed rashes on her bum. Since she was born, she never had skin problems like this because her skin is not that sensitive. I don’t know what happened to her skin, but maybe it’s because of the meds she was taking last week because of her cough (antibiotics + cough syrup) that made her urine react to her bum’s skin. Aside from applying Drapolene every nappy change, I also applied Johnson’s baby powder.
I read that rice powder is very safe and is good in absorbing moisture so I gave it a try. Aside from it being paraben-free, I also liked the Dark Vanilla scent, I’m crazy about everything-vanilla so even if the sales staff recommended the Enchanting Lullaby as the best one for babies and kids, I went on buying the Dark Vanilla :p.
Compared with ordinary baby powder, rice powder has coarser texture. But I noticed that it really has good absorption and does not clump together unlike ordinary powder. The yaya even used it on Gwen’s back to keep her cool.
The Dark Vanilla scent is quite strong for kids though, I know… I should have listened to the staff. But this product s great for kids and adults alike who are allergic to talc but needs the benefits of a body powder.
Gwen’s rashes is slowly disappearing, thanks to the help of gentle and natural baby products like this. A friend advised me to use a gentler baby soap like Bare Naturals Baby my Baby bar soap to speed up the healing of the rashes. Sesou doesn’t have Bare Naturals but good thing Zalora carries them.
