Distinguishing fact from fiction regarding your baby’s skin

Holding your baby and the touch of the soft skin is a feeling like no other. While your little one is still adapting to the new world outside the womb, the skin encounters the effects of the harsh environment. As you try to find out ways to prevent the baby’s skin from any damage, you may come across many facts regarding the baby’s skin. It becomes important to distinguish these facts from fiction and know the right reasons behind these so that you can provide your baby with the best baby products suitable for him/her.

Here we present to you some of the fictional things you may have heard regarding baby’s skin and tell you the real fact that has been hiding away. 

  1. Adult skin is drier than baby’s skin
  2. The baby’s skin covers less surface area than the adult skin
  3. Your baby’s skin is thicker than yours

Well, you may be surprised but all these are indeed fiction and it is important to distinguish the real facts.

  • Fact - 1 

You might think it is true but it isn’t. While adults go around working and exposing their skin to harsher environments more than babies, their skin has the ability to moisturise itself to an extent, which your child’s skin lacks. Your little one’s skin can absorb and lose water quickly, making it prone to dryness. Thus, it becomes important to use a moisturising and hydrating baby products like Maaté's Baby Body Butter that provides long-lasting hydration to your little one, while promoting the growth of healthy skin cells and boosting collagen.

  • Fact - 2

Surprisingly, it is untrue. The lower the body weight, the larger the surface area of the skin. Your tiny tot’s skin has a larger area to absorb bacteria and allergens from the atmosphere. This is why it is important to have a proper skincare regime for your child. A regular bath is essential to keep irritants at bay. Use Maaté’s Baby Body Wash which is a soap-free formulation with natural cleansers that cleanse with care and leave your baby’s tender skin soft, supple, and radiant. Experience the goodness


  • Fact - 3

Your baby’s skin may look plumper and appear thicker, but it isn’t. The baby’s epidermis is not as developed as that of an adult. This makes it vulnerable to irritation, dryness, and skin infections. Make sure to use a good body butter and massage the baby’s body using the Maaté’s Baby 

Body Massage Oils. The nutrients in the oil will help prevent skin infections and keep it healthy. Grab it here
