How we rate nappy rash cream

Our review compares nappy rash cream on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which nappy rash cream they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 239 Australians for their feedback on nappy rash cream they’ve purchased and used in the last 12 months.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their nappy rash cream brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a nappy rash cream brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Effectiveness: the product was effective at reducing/preventing nappy rash.
  • Smell/ scent: the product had a pleasant smell/scent which was not overpowering.
  • Texture & consistency: the nappy rash cream had a consistency that was pleasant to the touch and came out of the packaging without fuss.
  • Value for money: cost was low for the quality and effectiveness of the nappy rash cream.

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

• Sudocrem
• Bepanthen
