4 Reasons Babies Need Gentle Formulas for Sensitive Skin

 If you’re a parent navigating life with a baby, you know how amazing it is to witness all the precious moments. You’re also familiar with the seemingly endless search for products for your baby’s sensitive skin. You use them with every bath, after every diaper change, and before a fun day exploring the world outside. With all the thought and care you put into finding the perfect baby wash, you might wonder why you need specific skincare formulas for your baby. Here are a few reasons why.

A Baby is Still Adjusting to Life Outside the Womb

Babies have very soft skin. While it’s not always smooth (sometimes babies can have baby acne or milia on their faces), it’s still fresh and new to the world. When babies are little, they don’t spend entire days in the sunshine or take walks in the cold. Their sensitive skin isn’t used to allergens, skincare products, or the elements. So when it’s time for your baby’s first bath with baby wash, it’s important to use an ultra-gentle baby wash tested by dermatologists and pediatricians.  Our Sensitive Baby Shampoo & Wash is created for babies and kiddos with sensitive skin, enriched with sustainably sourced nourishing shea butter, EWG Verified™and fragrance free to ensure the highest level of safety and quality.

There Are Potentially Harsh Ingredients in Many Conventional Products

Gentle and effective products tested and approved by pediatricians are a must-have for your baby. Sensitive skincare formulas for babies are essential for a happy baby with healthy-looking skin because products not geared toward babies with sensitive skin may contain potentially harsh ingredients or irritants. Look for washes, lotions, creams, and sunscreens free of parabens, phthalates, gluten, soy, dairy, and even nuts (shea butter excluded). Our Sensitive Baby Collection is designed to keep baby's skin hydrated with dermatologist tested solutions developed for the most sensitive skin. With nourishing Shea Butter & soothing Calendula.


A Baby May Have Pre-Existing Skin Conditions

Some babies are born with extra sensitive skin. They may have baby acne, cradle cap, eczema, or newborn dry skin. A baby can also develop skin conditions later on, like heat rash or drool rash. You can work to improve the look of your baby’s skin and help your little one feel more comfortable with sensitive baby formulas. Our Healing Ointment is the perfect natural treatment for eczema and irritated, itchy skin. Formulated with 1% colloidal oatmeal, it provides head-to-toe relief for the most sensitive skin on the face, body and diaper area. 

Plant-Based Ingredients May Be Safer for Sensitive Skin

You should never subject a baby’s sensitive skin to potentially harsh ingredients—so what kinds of products can support their skin? Products with plant-based ingredients may be gentler on your little one’s body, whether you’re using a baby wash or sunscreen. If you find a brand that is transparent about its product formulas and offers sensitive baby products, look into all of the items in the baby collection. Pick up a baby shampoo and wash, mineral baby sunscreen, and diaper rash cream with plant-based ingredients to help your baby’s skin stay soft and feel soothed. Gentle baby sunscreen, Sensitive Baby Mineral Sunscreen Lotion  for effective broad spectrum SPF50 protection and 24 plant-based ingredients including nourishing shea butter. You can feel good using this fragrance-free baby sunscreen on your little one.
