We have been asked this question by understandably concerned parents on several occasions, which prompted us to research the condition for a definitive answer. While there are numerous over the counter drugs that should be avoided, we could find no literature that suggests any ingredient in our Alfresco® Moisturiser would cause harm to babies with G6PD deficiency. However, it is always best to err on the side of caution, especially with little ones. Therefore we advise that you print out the list of ingredients below and take it along to your pediatrician for their professional opinion. For further information, visit www.g6pd.org.

Why does the white Alfresco Moisturiser slightly change in appearance over time and is it still effective?
The discolouration is caused by the fact that our Alfresco Active Blend is made up of All Natural essential oils. This colour change occurs naturally and does not cause Alfresco to be any less effective. See shelf life.
