Why PINXAV Is Best
Not all Diaper Rash treatments are created equal!
According to the American Academy of Pediatricians: The single most effective active ingredient in any diaper rash treatment is zinc oxide. Pinxav starts with 30% zinc oxide; compare Pinxav to any other brand as far as their active ingredient! Then we add our unique, proprietary combination of ingredients to augment the effectiveness, and heal and soothe your Babies’ gentle skin. Most all diaper rash treatments are effective in creating a barrier against further wetness and irritation, that is the main property of zinc oxide. We add natural ingredients that work to stop the pain, and actually start healing the skin. Diaper rash is painful, and can be destructive left untreated – we work to treat all of the symptoms. We want your Baby as happy as you do!
Our proprietary formulation also contains:
Aloe: Sometimes called the “shining bitter substance,” aloe vera is widely regarded for its healing properties. Aloe vera gel is a mild anesthetic that can relieve itching, swelling and pain. It also has antibacterial and antifungal properties, can increase blood flow to wounds, and it can stimulate fibroblasts, the skin cells responsible for wound healing.
Vitamin E: It promotes healthy skin with its antioxidant properties, preventing cell damage by inhibiting the oxidation of lipids.
Eucalyptol: Also known as cineole, this colorless oily liquid is extracted from eucalyptus and used in pharmaceuticals, flavoring, and perfumery; it promotes healthy tissue.
Oil of Clove: Clove oil is made from the buds of the flowers of a tree that grows in tropical to Equatorial regions like Madagascar, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia. It is an intense oil, most commonly used to relieve dental pain and infection. It is antiseptic, carminative, warming, and very aromatic. It also is often used as a flavoring in toothpaste, mouthwashes, and exotic foods.
Menthol: This compound is obtained from peppermint oil or other mint oils. Menthol has local anesthetic and counterirritant properties.
Petrolatum: Also known as petroleum jelly, it is used in cold creams, emollients, and other skin creams. It is a purified combination of hydrocarbons made from petroleum. It helps soften the skin.
Lanolin: Besides being a wonderful emollient, lanolin is one of nature’s own oils and adds a waterproofing quality to Pinxav to keep out moisture.
Stearic Acid: Serves as a softener.
Cetyl alcohol: Cetyl alcohol is different from alcohols you might be familiar with, for instance ethyl- or rubbing alcohol, which dry the skin. Rather this is an emulsifying wax created by combining fatty alcohols derived from vegetable sources. It is used in many cosmetics as an emollient, thickening agent, moisturizer, emulsifier, and stabilizer. It also serves as a carrying agent for other ingredients.
Aluminum Hydroxide: Found in a variety of antacids such as Mylanta®, Maalox®, and Rolaids®, it is used to reduce absorption of phosphorus and has a supportive role in helping Pinxav work more effectively.
Methyl Salicylate: Also known as oil of wintergreen, this is a local anesthetic agent and disinfectant commonly used in toothpaste, mouthwashes, and perfumes
Who developed Pinxav and why?
Pinxav was developed in 1927 by Milford Harris along with a dedicated group of doctors and pharmacists, all of whom collaborated to create an effective treatment for diaper rash, a common and painful condition that affects millions of babies every year. In fact, because the sensitive skin of a newborn is no match for a wet, soiled diaper, most babies develop diaper rash at some point during infancy and beyond. The good news is that diaper rashes are rarely serious and respond readily to Pinxav.
