How to Make Natural Sudocrem

I was approached some time ago to produce a natural version of sudocrem for a naturopathic business, at that time, I had no clue what it was.  After some investigative work, I discovered that it was a well-known pharmacy product sold for a variety of purposes, some of the most common purposes are:

  • Nappy rash
  • Eczema
  • Chapped hands
  • Minor burns (sunburn)
  • Rough skin

The ingredients of the authentic product are a little frightening to me – and I certainly wouldn’t put it on my skin. Sudocrem consists of the following ingredients: Zinc Oxide, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Cinnamate, Lanolin, Purified Water, Liquid Paraffin (Heavy), Paraffin Wax, Micro Crystalline Wax, Synthetic Beeswax, Sorbitan Sesquiolate, Propylene Glycol, Antioxidant (citric acid, butylated hydroxanisole (BHA), propyleneglycol), Sodium Benzoate, Linalyl Acetate, Lavendar Fragrance. Yuk…

So if this is a product that you might find useful to keep in your medicine cabinet, you may want to try to make this super easy version at home… you need no special equipment or training to make it.

How to Make Natural Sudocrem

Add the following to a double boiler (or saucepan on low even heat)

Mix well, I use a whisk, and then pour out into glass jars.

If you wish, you can add some lavender essential oil just before pouring into jars ~ around 40 drops would do the job.

This is enough to make 6 x 30g jars.

I love coming up with safer version of common commercial products… is there another recipe you’d like a duplication of?
