It does not come as a surprise that this cream is an award winner - there truly is nothing else like it. There are other diaper creams that work quite well (MooGoo, Organic Babies from Green People, Honest etc. are all good) but Weleda's is unique in its formulation and in how it works and performs.
First, the ingredients are fantastic-nothing artificial.
Second, it truly relieves irritation from diaper rash and prevents new rashes from forming. If my little one as any rash, whether from not using the Diaper Rash Cream at the last diaper change or working with another one (say for a product review), I immediately revert to Weleda's Diaper Rash Cream and put on a very generous amount. Within an hour, the redness dissipates and within several hours, it is almost completely gone. When I use it exclusively, diaper rash, redness, or irritation has no chance.
Third, the texture. It is just amazing. Most others are oily and greasy, too runny, slippery and just hard to use. Not the Diaper Rash Cream. It is really a cream - it is silky but rich, smooth yet thick. I don't know how they do it, but it works like a charm.
