The good news is that there are safe, toxin-free and natural baby skin care products available that will take care of your baby’s gentle and sensitive skin without causing any harm.
What can I use on my newborn skin?
Newborn babies have very delicate skin. You should always make sure that your baby’s skincare products have natural ingredients and no harmful or toxic chemicals. Before using a new skincare product for your baby, you must perform a patch test especially if your baby’s skin is sensitive and prone to allergic rashes. Take a few drops of the product such as lotion, oil or cream on your baby’s hand or inside of the elbow and leave it for at least a day. The newborn baby’s skincare products should not show signs of irritation and allergy.
Some things to keep in mind before picking up skincare products for the newborn:
Your baby’s skin is 30% thinner than your skin. Hence, baby skincare products should be gentle and safe. Your newborn needs products that are infused with the goodness of natural ingredients to protect and hydrate the baby’s gentle skin. If you feel your baby has sensitive skin, look for terms like ‘hypoallergenic’ and ‘natural’ on the product label. Listing down some important points to take care of while purchasing skincare products for your little bundle of joy.
- Read Labels Carefully
For the baby’s delicate skin it is important to stay close to “natural” products. It is important to read the label carefully. The baby’s skin care products should be free from harmful chemicals, toxins, sulphates, paraben, and mineral oil and should also be dermatologically tested. The unwanted substances can cause irritation and allergies on a baby’s sensitive skin.
– Does Not contain Sulphates and Parabens
The long-term exposure to parabens throughout life may affect their metabolism and hormone regulation, so you should reduce your child’s exposure to parabens and sulphates during early childhood. Sulphate irritates the skin and eyes which is not safe for a baby’s delicate skin.
– Does not contain SLS & Phthalates
Phthalates are not great for your kid’s health. They are associated with neurodevelopmental disorders in children and may contribute to asthma and allergies in children.
SLS causes the drying effect. It denatures skin proteins that allow it and other environmental contaminants to attack the skin’s lower, more sensitive layers, irritating and eroding the skin and leaving your baby’s skin rough and pitted.
– Hypoallergenic Label
The skin of your newborn is highly sensitive and thinner. A baby’s skin loses moisture fast and can become dry easily. Newborn skin care products should be chosen very wisely and should have the label “Hypoallergenic”. The hypoallergenic products reduce the risk of skin allergies and ensure keeping the skin hydrated and smooth.
– Natural Label
Baby’ at the early stage have very delicate and dry skin. Harmful chemicals like DEA/TEA, Phenoxyethanol, PEGs and many other potentially harmful chemicals can make a baby’s skin more rough and dehydrated. Look for products that are natural and moisturise dry, sensitive skin.
