It has been in our lives for generations.
I am a true believer that zinc oxide, one of the main ingredients in Zincofax, really helps prevent diaper rash. I used Zincofax for both of my daughters; one is now 10 and the other 4. I am happy to say that they never suffered from diaper rash—not ever. I directly and honestly attribute that to using Zincofax religiously.
I was a young Mom and like any mother, you learn as you go. There really isn’t a rule book or guide on how to parent a child. While you can read a book and read step-by-step on how to change a diaper, which products to use and the works, there is nothing like learning from a mother who has been there and done it all.
Since I am the baby of my own family, I never had the chance or opportunity to change diapers before I had my own children. My mom helped me change my oldest daughter for the first time in the hospital and, like the caring mother she is, she packed an extra bag with all the essentials she thought I would need.
Among a few traditional things that would help me get my milk started, a new nightgown and more, she packed Zincofax. She had used zinc oxide on all of us when we were babies and she swore by it.
Zincofax Spray is Here!
From that first change in the hospital until I changed my last diaper with my now 4-year-old, I used Zincofax. I always loved how it formed a thin barrier against moisture and helped maintain the integrity of that precious baby skin. It doesn’t allow for any breakdown of the skin and since every change meant thoroughly cleaning the areas of the skin, no bacteria could build.
Since I am a firm believer that Zincofax works, I am excited to share with you all that Zincofax released a NEW product—Zincofax Spray! I recommend Zincofax to any of my friends that are new mothers and I’m particularly thrilled about this new development. As great as Zincofax is, it can be a bit messy on the hands and having the same moisturizing and protection of Zincofax in a spray is genius!

Protect Those Little Buns.
Since I no longer have any babies at home, I needed to borrow a little bum to test the Zincofax on! Luckily, I have a friend who recently had a little one and who I had turned onto Zincofax. She was all aflutter to discover that there is now a spray version and willing to let me try it out. We shook the bottle well and sprayed liberally to all the parts that needed it. It sprayed pretty evenly and, because I am a bit obsessive, I used my fingers to make sure the layer was even, though I don’t think it was needed.
If you are worried that it is to cold to spray on, I tried it on my wrist and it was not alarming or cold. I think that the Zincofax Spray is perfect for when you and baby are on-the-go. How awesome is it that you can be in a public washroom changing baby and can achieve all the protection of a cream without the mess. I’m elated for this!
Proof Is In the Pudding.
Now that I look back on my own journey on raising a baby, I was lucky enough to never experience the toils and troubles of diaper rash. But, maybe it wasn’t luck after all. Rather, it my use of Zincofax, a reliable, protective and effective secret weapon for any mother! We still have it in our home for our harsh winters and for the dry skin that can result from a little too much summer sun.
