Calmoseptine, Inc. is a small company that manufactures and supplies Calmoseptine Ointment.  This ointment is a multipurpose, moisture barrier ointment.  It is over-the counter and does not require a prescription to obtain.  It was originally developed by a pharmacist as a diaper rash ointment but, over time, has been found to be effective for a number of skin conditions. Calmoseptine Ointment acts as a barrier to protect skin from moisture and irritating substances.  This barrier function also helps protect the skin from drying out.  In addition it has ingredients that help to draw moisture away from too moist or inflamed areas.  Thus, it helps to maintain a healthy moisture balance for your skin. Although Calmoseptine was originally developed for use on infants, it also has become very popular with adults who have an incontinence condition. It is known to be very effective in protecting and healing skin irritations derived from incontinence. Calmoseptine Ointment may be difficult to find in your favorite drug store, but it is always in stock at Careway Wellness Center.  It can be purchased in our retail store located in Woburn, Massachusetts or conveniently ordered online.
