Calmoseptine supports Bantay Bata 163

It is not everyday that someone will agree to pay for someone else’s power consumption for one year -- especially if the place houses about 50 children.

It was a generous gift that Ms. Girlie Aragon, BB163 Deputy Director gladly received recently. As an organization that depends mostly on the kindness of others, this is a huge help. The cheerful donor is the American manufacturer of Calmoseptine ointment.

Aside from the support to the Children’s Village, Mr. Greg Dixon, the good man behind Calmoseptine Worldwide also committed to support the other programs of BB163. Aside from paying for the electricity bill of the Children’s Village for one year, the company will provide one year scholarship to 27 BB163 scholars, help cover the medical needs of BB163 patients with Hirschprungs, Imperforate Anus, and Encephalocele; and support the second phase of BB163’s 1,000 Days Mother & Child Health Club.

Calmoseptine ointment is originally developed by a pharmacist as a diaper rash ointment. It is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration as a skin protectant drug product or a product that temporarily protects injured or exposed skin or mucous membrane surfaces from harmful or annoying stimuli and may provide relief to such surfaces. Over time, Calmoseptine has been found to be effective for feeding tube site leakage; wound drainage; minor cuts and scrapes; minor burns; skin irritation; fecal, urinary and vaginal fistulas; moisture in skin folds, hemorrhoids and anal fissures; partial thickness wounds; among others.

The company that has been around in America since 1933 received testimonials from many happy consumers in their website ( One only need to surf the internet to see that it is indeed a a trusted brand. One good thing about the company is that it always chooses to give back to the community, inside and outside their home country. Taking on the cue of its mother company, Calmoseptine Philippines which is based in Cebu has been active in helping the indigent Filipinos since it started in the country in 2001. It’s been over a decade of partnership and results for both Calmoseptine and Bantay Bata 163.
