  • Effective, nice fragrance, smooth, comforting


  • Pot could be unhygienic, old-fashioned

Kamillosan's Nappy Cream is a classic for good reason. The cream is smooth and light and is effective in providing relief for baby’s skin.


A trusted brand for over 75 years, Kamillosan Nappy Cream provides a barrier against wetness, preventing nappy rash, and contains natural chamomile extract to help provide relief to sore, irritated skin.

What we love

The cream is amazingly smooth and so light you can barely feel it on your fingers. And yet when you apply it, it feels much thicker and creamier. The fragrance is nice too; it's not overpowering, but smells reassuringly baby-like.

Joe (3 months) hasn't suffered from nappy rash, but he does have lots of red patches at the top of his thighs and in the general nappy region. Within a day of smoothing on the Kamillosan, the red patches were gone. (Plus the feel of the cool cream made Joe giggle!)

What to watch out for

I'm not wild about having a nappy cream in a pot. I know this is the traditional packaging for nappy cream, but it seems a little unhygienic going from bottom to pot and back again. While I'm on the subject of packaging, the design could do with a bit of updating – it looks a little old-fashioned.

Who is Kamillosan Nappy Cream best for?

Anyone concerned about nappy rash and comforted by tried and tested traditional creams.


MadeForMums verdict

Kamillosan Nappy Cream is a classic for a reason – it works. But maybe it would be better in a tube.
