Being a mom of boys my kids go through hoardes of bandaids and antibacterial medicines for all of the random cuts and scrapes that they get. I was just recently introduced to SAFESKIN Kids Antibacterial Gel which is made by Kimberly-Clark Professional. What immediately caught my eye about this particular ointment is that it provides a barrier to MRSA. If you don’t know what MRSA is it’s a highly contagious staph bacteria that is resistant to most antibiotics. Trust me – you don’t want it! This gel covers the wound for up to 48 hours (that is, if your kids don’t wipe it off first!). Surprisingly it wasn’t greasy at all. I’m so used to having to spend a few extra minutes washing my hands just to get the greasy feel off from other ointments so I appreciated this gel form.
And the best part? It’s MADE in the USA! So next time you’re at the store looking for first aid ointment – see if they carry SAFESKIN!

Believe it or not when we travel I always throw in a box of bandaids and ointment because my kids have a knack for finding anything to cut themselves on or pinch their fingers! I’ll be bringing our SAFESKIN with us next week as we drive on our 12 hour road trip because I’m sure that if there’s a way to get hurt – my kids will find it! :)
