A beginner’s guide for choosing the right skincare products for your baby
When it comes to buying skincare products for your baby, it’s crucial to buy tried and tested items that are renowned for their quality and safety standards. After all, baby skin is delicate and prone to irritation and dryness. You need to choose skincare products that are mild yet effective, and those that will protect your baby’s skin from environmental irritants such as dust and diapers. Here’s a quick and easy guide to buying newborn baby products online.
1. Always choose products specifically designed for babies
Baby skin needs to be regularly cleaned, massaged, and moisturised. It is susceptible and won’t take well to products used by adults. That is why it is imperative to choose a skincare range that is made specifically to suit the needs of babies. These products are milder and ensure that the balance of your little one’s skin is neutral, protecting it against irritation.

2. Choose products free of parabens, dyes & phthalates
Read the ingredients carefully before purchasing. It should not contain ingredients such as harsh soaps or alcohol as these can cause allergic reactions and discomfort. Also, ensure that the products do not contain parabens (a preservative often found in cosmetic products). There are concerns that parabens could be absorbed more by infants than adults, making them more vulnerable to any potential harmful effects. Look out for dyes, which are an unnecessary addition to baby products. Phthalates are also potentially dangerous ingredients that research has linked to a range of disorders such as asthma, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, low IQ, neurodevelopmental issues, behavioural issues and autism spectrum disorders, among others. Look for a chemical name that ends in ‘phalate’ on the list of ingredients and avoid buying those products.

3. Ensure that your baby products are natural
In India, there is no regulation with regards to marketing a product as ‘natural’. Products labelled as that may not necessarily be free of preservatives or harmful additives. Always make sure to read the ingredients carefully before purchasing a product for your baby. Check for the chemicals mentioned above and any other ingredient of which the name you do not recognise. Research unfamiliar ingredients before purchasing to make sure the product is safe for infants and young children.
