New Delhi, September 11 (IANSlife): Newborn skin is naturally smooth and silky. But due to its fragility, their skin is particularly prone to rashes and other skin conditions, especially in this climate. Since babies and toddlers spend majority of their time indoors, parents frequently use careless items on their children’s skin, endangering their overall skin condition.
However, in this humid and changeable climate, it is crucial to take care of your baby’s skin. When choosing the appropriate skin care products for their child, one should exercise extreme caution and only use items that have received clinical approval. Body lotion is the first item that comes to mind when talking about baby skin care items as part of your baby’s grooming routine.
Choosing the “perfect” baby body lotion from the many options on the market today, the “right after bath” basics, is actually a daunting chore. However, we’ve got you covered by outlining the top five features of a Cetaphil Baby recommended baby body lotion.
* Paraben free
Compared to adult skin, a baby’s delicate skin absorbs and loses moisture much faster. As a result, chemicals administered to their skin are more likely to be absorbed through the skin. Baby products containing parabens, chemicals, or alcohol can damage a baby’s skin. No one would want to expose their little munchkin to harmful chemicals and that’s where paraben-free lotions come in.
* Long-lasting hydration
At higher temperatures, the skin loses its essential nutrients and moisture. As a result, a baby’s skin tends to develop patches, rashes, and itchiness. A moisturizing body lotion helps retain moisture and keep skin healthy and soft.
* Balanced pH level
The natural acid layer that protects your baby’s skin from external aggressions is reinforced by maintaining a balanced pH of 5.5. It can become excessively dry and sensitive if this barrier is compromised. Additionally, environmental irritants from the monsoon can affect your baby’s skin. We keep hearing the importance of maintaining a balanced pH level in all areas of the body, so why ignore pH levels when it comes to your baby’s skin? Having a balanced pH level is therefore the third essential quality for your baby’s body lotion.
Gone are the days when consumers were driven by surface factors like color and smell in skincare products. When it comes to their babies, safe and healthy products should be parents’ top priority. Hypoallergenic body lotions are often dye- and fragrance-free and perform all the functions of a lotion while providing “chemical-free” exposure to the skin.
* Enriched with natural ingredients
A good body lotion for your baby’s skin is equipped with the most nourishing natural ingredients as they provide the finest and purest care for your baby’s skin. These ingredients range from shea butter, aloe vera to almond oil and calendula. For example, Cetaphil Baby Organic Calendula Daily Lotion is rich in organic calendula and natural oils that will soothe and nourish your baby’s sensitive skin all day long.
