Body Cream, Body Lotion, and Body Butter - Which one to choose for your baby?

Mothers know the importance of moisturizing the baby’s skin as it is very prone to frequent dryness, rashes, and irritation. It keeps the baby’s skin well-hydrated, looking and feeling fresh and soft. 

With a plethora of baby products in the market, it becomes difficult to know and choose the best for your young one. When it comes to skin moisturization, a common doubt arises in many mothers, what is best for the baby- creams, lotions, or butters?

  • Body Creams have a middle ground among the 3 products. It is thicker than lotions but not as thick as body butters. They are a composition of water and oi, where the ratio is about the same. They are of medium consistency and provide medium hydration too.
  • Body lotions are the lightest of the lot. They primarily contain water as a major ingredient along with a bit of oil and have low moisturizing properties, making the consistency a bit runny. The lotion does not penetrate deep into the skin and stays on the upper layer, only for a few hours.  
  • Body butters have the thickest formula and high moisturizing properties. They compose of rich oils and little water, making it the best for intense nourishment and hydration. They have penetrative properties that go deep into the skin and have lasting power. 

Since the baby’s skin is a victim of dryness very often, body butters for babies is an ideal choice for a moisturizer.
