That tender loving care starts with choosing the very best products for your baby's skin. It's not always easy. After all, baby skin is very different from adult skin. It has different challenges and different needs. Understanding your little one's skin is the first step in choosing the very best products to take care of it.
Most people know that baby skin is more delicate and sensitive than adult skin. But what they don't know is why. One of the reasons baby skin is more sensitive is the immune system is still developing. Common additives in personal care products can cause irritation. In addition to being more sensitive than adult skin, baby skin tends to be significantly drier. Dry skin and a propensity for absorbing irritants means that infants are highly susceptible to skin conditions such as eczema.
Baby Care Skin Products
Luckily, there are many options for approaching your baby’s delicate skin. The right kind of baby bath
products can help promote healthy, moisturized, and comfortable skin. But what is the right kind of product for your baby? It's one that has been formulated specifically for your little one's delicate skin.
Baby skin care products are different from adult skin care products in several key ways. Shampoo and body wash
formulas don't contain harsh chemicals or ingredients that will penetrate your baby's skin to cause irritation. Many of them boast tear-free formulas, as well, in case they get dripped or splashed in an infant's eyes during a playful bath. These baby-specific products are free of potentially irritating ingredients and work double-time to promote moisturized skin. Many also include gentle aromatherapy to soothe both baby skin and baby.
Baby skin care products are widely available for a variety of uses. They include shampoo, conditioners and detanglers
, body wash, bubble bath, eczema bath therapy, body oil, lotion, moisturizing cream, and multipurpose ointment.
By working with your baby's skin, instead of against it, these baby skin care products will become your favorite accessories for bath time, right up there with squeeze toys
and squirt guns. Together, you'll help keep baby healthy, from those very cute toes to that fine sprinkling of hair. Bath time has never looked so good. back to top »
