Why is using 100% perfume and color-free toiletries important for babies?
Babies are born with an alkaline skin surface however within days this changes to a protective acid layer known as the Acid Mantle. Too many perfumed and colored baby cleansing products can damage this natural layer.
To prevent skin breakdown, it’s best to avoid chemicals which can act as irritants and allergens. Therefore, parents must take extra care when choosing baby skincare products and use one which is as kind and gentle as possible – ideally 100% perfume and color free and with little or no unnecessary additives.
Always look at the list of ingredients to check whether either a pediatrician or dermatologist has approved the product.
