Thera Wise - Bio Active Natural ~ Review & Giveaway

Who is Thera Wise?

My little one has been having diaper rash issues off and on.  I believed I tried many diaper creme that are available over the counter.  I am able to "air her out" during the summer but not so much in the winter.  I'm always looking for the ideal diaper cream I could use on my daughter all the time. 

I was given the DpR Bio Active Diaper Ointment (28g) to test out on my daughter.  It's soothing, dries quickly, non greasy and there is no alcohol.  It also contains no zinc oxide, beeswax, or petroleum based ingredients.  Thera Wise states that they don't use them because they traps wetness instead of allowing the skin to breathe.  "Micronized or nano particle sized zinc oxide has some real health concerns when used on the delicate skin of infants."  For more information, you can read it here.  I was very pleased with this diaper cream.  It didn't have any strong odor and was not messy.  Sometimes, diaper cremes in a jar can be very messy while trying to put it on.  I just wish this came in a bigger tube.
Every cold and flu season, my two little girls always has nasal and chest congestion.  I could never find anything that could help them to breathe better at night.  I didn't think there were products that were safe to use on my kids.  I was happy to try their VpR Vaporizing Rub (28g).  Read their instructions carefully when using on children.  It is known not to leave any sticky, greasy, or otherwise ugly stains on the bed sheets or clothing.  Once I  put it on myself, I can feel the immediate cooling sensation to provide instant relief.  It has a more watery texture so it is not sticky or messy.  I would recommend this to anyone who has nasal and chest congestion.

Available at selected Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, London Drugs, Walmart, as well as

Thera Wise would like to offer one of my readers their own DpR Bio Active Diaper Ointment and VpR Vaporizing Rub.  Open to Can only. Good Luck!
