Materials for the Orliderm Method

Here is a list of the materials you will need to make Orliderm ointment.  While you may be able to get some of these items in local stores, it can be challenging to find the same items we have used and tested.

To simplify the process of getting the items, for your convenience, we provide links to Amazon.com so that it is easy to get exactly what you will need to make Orliderm ointment. When you purchase by clicking on these links the price you pay at Amazon is the same and a small portion of the sales price goes to help support this website.

The electric whisk 

To mix the ointment, use the KOIOS Hand Blender below, which stirs the ingredients for 30 seconds.  We tried many other electric blenders and all the others failed to adequately mix the ointment.

You will also need a thin spatula.

The amount you need is determined by how many areas of rash are on your child.

For your convenience we have provided starter kits which provide all the ingredients you will need to get started.

After the kits we have listed the individual ingredients.

This kind of Purell gel works well.  Other hand sanitizer gels have different ingredients.  We have not tested them and they may not work.
