It has been seen that a staggering number of babies each year develop some or other skin conditions within the first few months after being born.
It is widely believed that this may be due to the sort of chemicals and other additives that are found to be present in products; even those which claim to be ‘formulated for babies’.
The fact is that parents probably end up washing and shampooing their babies’ hair rather more often than required and also most often that delicate baby skin can tolerate. Even massage oil that is supposed to be for babies and which claims to be ‘gentle’ can cause an adverse reaction simply because baby’s skin is that immature and` sensitive!
Many parents find that using organic products is best for baby, since they do not have pesticide, insecticide or other chemicals. Also products that contain no alcohol may be better for baby’s skin since alcohol can be an irritant to sensitive skin. Un-perfumed products are also very often the best bet for a baby’s skin because sometimes it is something as simple as the perfume element of a product that could be the cause of the problem.
