A baby’s skin is pure, sensitive and delicate. The baby has been in the mother’s protective womb and then suddenly the baby’s skin is exposed to the atmosphere and the environmental elements. There are many baby skin care products on the market now. Many of these products claim to be “natural,” however they may still contain harsh elements.
Natural, Organic Ingredients
Products applied to a baby’s skin should be very mild and made from natural ingredients, especially baby products that do not rinse off and stay on the skin. Products that stay on the skin can easily irritate a baby’s skin especially if there are harsh ingredients in it. It is best to use baby products made with the highest quality of natural ingredients and organic whenever possible and containing no harsh ingredients.
Essential Oils for Babies
Essential oils can be great to use in baby care products. However they need to be used with great care. Essential oils add scent and have incredible therapeutic properties. A little goes a long way and many essential oils may not be safe for babies. Essential oils should never be used directly on baby skin. Essential oils should be highly diluted using a plant-based oil, cream, or lotion, prior to using and should never be used by the eyes, nose, or mouth.
