Dr. Smith's® Introduces A New and Touch-Free Solution to Treat Diaper Rash

SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Spray What? From the tried and true ointment to a truly revolutionary spray, Dr. Smith's® introduces a touch-free spray application of its effective and fast-working formula. Dr. Smith's® Diaper Rash Spray, developed by San Antonio-based Mission Pharmacal Company, is an innovation in the treatment of diaper rash.

Dr. Smith's Diaper Rash Spray was designed with safety and ease of use in mind. The patent pending formulation ensures that the product clings to the skin creating a thin, even layer of protection when sprayed. The product sprays on easily to create a moisture barrier to treat diaper rash and protect even the most sensitive skin from wetness. Once it's sprayed on the affected area, there's no need to rub it in – just spray it, leave it, and let it work. The formula won't cake on or run, and the cooling spray helps soothe irritated baby bottoms.

The new spray is formulated with Honeywell Solstice® Propellant, one of the most environmentally preferable aerosol technologies available today. The propellant is hydro-fluorocarbon (HFC) free, and is not a volatile organic compound (VOC).  Any overspray is minimized due to the technology of the actuator and propellant, as well as the rich consistency of the product.

"At Mission Pharmacal, we always look to innovate and create valuable products for families," said Neill Walsdorf, Jr., President of Mission Pharmacal. "With the new Dr. Smith's Diaper Rash Spray, we are reinventing the way parents treat their baby's diaper rash with a gentle, environmentally friendly and effective alternative to a traditional topical method."

The new Dr. Smith's Diaper Rash Spray has moms talking:

"Dr. Smith's Diaper Rash Spray is perfect for quick and complete coverage," said Stepfanie, mom of four. "Just a quick spray on red areas, and my son's rash was gone by the next diaper change."

Molly, mom of 2, from Florida, "Having diaper rash ointment all over my fingers is not the greatest thing so the spray makes it no mess, no fuss, very easy." She also added, "Hurray for spray."

"This is a parenting game-changer. It's never been so easy to use rash cream," said Claire, mom of four boys.

Nina exclaimed, "The same trusted Dr. Smith's, but even better!"

The new spray is currently available on Walgreens.com and Drugstore.com, as well as on store shelves at retailers such as Schnucks, Dierbergs, Kroger stores, and others. In Texas, Dr. Smith's Diaper Rash Spray is available at H-E-B. Additional national distribution is slated for later this year.

In addition to the new Diaper Rash Spray, the Dr. Smith's family of products also includes an ointment available in a 2 oz. jar, 3 oz. tube and 8 oz. tub. For more information on where to find Dr. Smith's products, go to DoctorSmiths.com.
