Softness is best described by quoting the example of a baby’s soft skin texture. Skin in a human being is the largest organ that takes about 3 months to develop fully. It is also the outermost covering of the body and hence is the most sensitive. It is also quite infection-prone. A new baby’s skin is far softer than a normal adult’s skin and so it is just as precious as the love you shower on your baby.
Special attention is required for maintaining the baby’s soft skin texture. All parents want to give the best care for their children and often face the dilemma of choosing the right baby product. A healthy baby’s soft skin is dependent on several parameters like external weather condition, sun exposure, insect bites, clothing and more. But the most drastic change that can affect the softness and moisture in a baby’s skin is the ritual of bathing.
While it is extremely important to bathe the baby for hygiene purpose, it is important to choose the soap used for the same very carefully. In today’s time, there are a lot of products available in the market. But while selecting, parents need to check the body wash and other baby skin care products that promise to balance the skin at 5.5 pH.
‘pH’ can simply be explained as the parameter to measure the acidity or alkalinity of any product. A healthy, soft and moisturized human skin has a pH of 5.5 at normal body temperature. To maintain the baby’s soft skin the product should be free from harsh chemicals, strong artificial fragrance & colourants. Negligence while choosing the baby skin care products can lead to small acne-like pustules and rashes on baby’s skin. Skin irritant chemicals like parabens, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Fatty alcohol, Triethanolamine are a strict no-no for baby’s skin. Sebamed Body Wash is one baby skin care product which has natural lipids like Allantoin to gently take care of baby’s soft skin. It being soap free and alkali-free also makes it a tear-free body wash which works well for babies from the first day.
Our Experience with Sebamed Baby Wash:
On doctor’s recommendation, we ordered and used Sebamed products right from day 1 for our newborn. For maintaining baby’s soft skin, Sebamed has a baby wash, body lotion and shampoo. We used all of these and thankfully weren’t disappointed a bit. The baby wash comes in 200ml. and 400ml. packs. It has easy to use packaging. Plus it is free from strong fragrance and washes off quickly from the baby’s skin. The best part about Sebamed Baby Wash is that it can be used both in summers and winters without making the skin excessively oily or dry.
We personally loved Sebamed products and would highly recommend Sebamed baby wash. Do share your thoughts and tips on maintaining the baby’s soft skin. Also, if you found this article useful then do share!
