To protect your baby’s sensitive skin, the products that you use for your baby must be chosen with care. While many aware parents are now switching to natural skin care for their little ones, we must acknowledge that not all natural products are created equal.
Research suggests that mediocre quality herbal and natural products may contain significant percentage of harmful chemicals. Depending on the type of chemical used in making a product, as much as 60% may be absorbed into the skin.
To help you make an informed decision, we got our experts to prepare a quick checklist. When purchasing skin and hair care products for your little one, make sure that the product is:
- Free from Parabens – Artificial preservatives most commonly used in creams & lotions. These are known to cause allergic reactions & other serious problems like hormonal issues & even cancer. Good quality natural products are free from artificial preservatives.
- Sulfates (SLS/ SLES) – Chemical based foaming agents commonly used in shower gels, shampoos, body wash, hand wash etc. These are very harsh chemicals that cause both short term & long term harm to your child’s skin. You should avoid products containing SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) & SLES (sodium laureth sulphate)
- Petrochemicals – Petrochemicals like LLP (Light Liquid Paraffin) are commonly found in massage oils & moisturizers even in baby products. These are artificial agents that clog pores and cause allergies & reactions and also hinder effective moisturizing – exactly the opposite of what they are supposed to do. Natural Oils & Creams do not contain petrochemicals and moisturize the way mother-nature intends to.
- Artificial fragrances and synthetic dyes as these can cause irritation and allergic reactions.
