Mater Mothers delivers another product win

Mater Mothers’ Hospitals is excited to announce Mater Nappy Balm has won silver in the recent 2016 International Business Awards (Stevie®Awards).

Mater Nappy Balm’s unique, soothing formula was recognised in the category of Best New Product or Service of the Year - Health & Pharmaceuticals – Product, for providing innovation in the baby skin care market.

In an Australian first, Mater Nappy Balm’s formulation closely replicates the vernix—the naturally occurring substance produced in the womb— to form a protective barrier repelling wetness while maintaining breathability and moisturising baby’s skin.

Mater’s Director of Brand and Marketing Projects, Tania Alves, said this global recognition of Mater Nappy Balm adds to the acknowledgement from Australian parents that our Mater Products continue the exceptional care we provide from our hospitals into their homes.

“We are very proud that Mater is the first and only hospital brand in the world to develop its own range of maternity and baby care products, including nappy balm, which are endorsed by midwives and loved by mums across Australia.”

Mater Nappy Balm is specifically designed for a delicate newborn baby’s skin, as part of a unique high-quality product range that is safe, ethical and affordable and backed by years of research and development. 

Director of Nursing and Midwifery—Mothers, Babies and Women’s Health Services, Maree Reynolds, said she was delighted to see Mater Nappy Balm achieve another outstanding accolade.

“As Australia’s largest maternity service, Mater Mothers’ Hospitals is dedicated to providing exceptional care to mothers and their babies in hospital as well as continuing that care into people’s homes, these products are a trustworthy way for us to do just that,” Ms Reynolds said.

Since launching in 2013, the Mater maternity and baby care product range has received numerous global business awards, as well as recognition from Australian consumers through winning  The Product of the Year Award (baby category), Mother & Baby Magazine Awards (Gold), and My Child Excellence Awards (Gold and Silver).

The skin care range currently includes Mater Baby Moisturiser, Baby Wash, Nappy Balm and Body Balm for pregnancy, as well as a complete range of Mater Nappies.  Proceeds support Mater Little Miracles, giving babies throughout Australia the best possible start in life.  

The Mater maternity and baby care product range is available at selected Woolworths Supermarkets and IGA stores in Queensland and selected pharmacies nationally. For supply enquiries call 1300 162 837 or email
