Safety Warning

For external use only. Keep out of the sight and reach of children. Do not store above 25°C.

Washing Instructions

This product does not contain anything which can dye clothes as such and so the stains will come out. The yellow colour is due to pigments which are held in place by the paraffin oil/wax matrix. If this is removed then the pigment will wash off as well. In order to remove the grease you could either use a proprietary stain remover or alternatively vigorously rub neat washing up liquid into the stained area. Leave it to soak for an hour or so then launder as normal.

How to use

It is important that you follow these instructions carefully. - After removing soiled nappy, clean and wash the affected area, drying with a soft towel. - Wash your hands and dab a small amount (pea size) of the ointment over the sore area with your fingertip. - Squeeze the tube very gently to keep it in good condition. This way you’ll also save more product! - Repeat at each nappy change to treat nappy rash. - Keep the tube nozzle clean of residue product to ensure the cap can be closed tightly.

Use at each nappy change

Metanium Nappy Rash Ointment can be used at each nappy change to treat nappy rash.
You only need a pea-size amount of ointment for your little one, so don’t press too hard as it can cause the aluminium tube to split.
