What Is Aquaphor?

Aquaphor® Healing Ointment is a nonprescription medication used for relieving dry or chapped skin, treating and preventing diaper rash, and protecting minor cuts or burns. It is frequently recommended for people with sensitive skin because it is fragrance-free and preservative-free.
 
There is no difference between Aquaphor Healing Ointment and Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment, other than the packaging. Also, there is no difference between the products in the jars or in the tubes. The ointment works as a protective barrier to seal in skin's natural moisture and to seal out irritants. It also helps to soothe and heal skin.
 
Aquaphor should be applied as often as needed. For treating and preventing diaper rash, the ointment should be applied after each diaper change. When used for other purposes, simply apply the ointment to clean skin as often as necessary.
