Herbal, local diaper cream

Unitech Medical — a locally based startup with offices in Plymouth — has introduced an herbal diaper cream.

Unlike typical creams, it’s not thick and white, it’s actually a bit thin and light brown due its active ingredients — botanical extracts of herbs commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine such as arnebia root and amur cork-tree bark.

Unitech’s main mission is to create remedies that address some of the side effects of cancer treatments, including a CoolSkin botanical cream designed to help alleviate discomfort from topical burns and deep joint or muscle pain caused by radiation therapy.  

The Environmental Working Group has rated Unitech products as green (low hazard) at ewg.org/skindeep.
