More like vaseline, but thick like Eucerin.

Something similar to the tubs of "Pure white parafin" that we use so?

Sort of. It's a concoction mostly of petrolatum with some mineral oil, ceresin and lanolin alcohol in it.

The healing ointment one has 3 other ingredients in it - glycerin, bisabolol (some sort of alcohol found in chamomile) and panthenol (vitamin B5 alcohol). Lots of people have complained that the healing ointment version burns.

I just recieved my case of auqaphor yesterday. I faxed the Dr.s letter the first week in July and did not get a response, so I called the coustomer service number the other day to see what happened. The woman said they had no information about my fax that I could fax again, she took my name and address, the next day I had recieved the case of auqaphor. What a wonderful company! Wish there was more companies like them. Thanks to all for the information about this program!!!! smile

So I had two cases shipped over three months ago and all I had to do was call them today and request that they send more. I thought once every three months meant going to the doctor again getting a note and faxing, but NO!! How wonderful this is!! Yeah. Thank you so much for putting this thread out here--talk about a savings!! 24 jars is what we get for the two of us and at $18 each that is significant thanks again.

Brianna, I've called Galderma to see if they could help us (I go through 3 jars a week on my boys!), but they are not very responsive.

October, I'm so glad that Beiersdorf is so helpful for your family!

Hearsay,
Yes, I e-mailed the co., but I think I am going to try calling and speaking with someone. Maybe I can get somewhere by speaking to someone. I will let you know the out come.

well my son has to have 3 baths a day and we lube him up with alot of aquaphor from head to toe..i can easily got through 4 jars a week. I didnt know they had discontinued aquaphor i thought my husband bought some 1 month ago is it not available anymore??

i had one of his doctors suggest cetaphil whip..its real fluffy and it worked wonders on him for a bit but the aquaphor brings moisture back to him..

I was wondering the same exact thing- would I have to have the doctor fax another letter! It is good to know that Eucerin makes it a little easier for us. We received a case a few weeks ago. It took a little longer than I expected and when I called to see what was going on, I was told they never received a fax from the doctor. So I called the doctor and they refaxed the letter. A few weeks later a case (12 jars)arrived at my doorstep. Talk about an early Christmas gift- was I ever excited to be saving so much money! That saved us $170! You can be sure I will be making another call to Eucerin in January!
