Milder alternatives for skincare to try out for your child

Every mother leaves the feel of soft and tender hands of the baby, the innocent and gentle face, which makes you forget the stress and the lovely giggles that make your day. Rearing a child can give constant bouts of stress to mothers to choose products which keep the baby’s softness and innocence alive, rather than hampering with their joy. 

It becomes important to select products that are mild on the skin and don’t cause any harm to it. We bring to you some milder alternatives to popular skin and body care products you may be using for your baby.

  • Body Washes for Soaps

Many mothers have started opting for body washes instead of soaps for their baby’s bath time, only for the right reasons. Soaps can be too harsh on the baby’s sensitive skin. Its formula contains detergents and allergens which can cause rashes, irritation, and dryness. 

Body washes on the other hand are generally milder and gentle.  Maaté’s Baby Body Wash moisturises the body and is made with natural ingredients like Neem and Oats extract. The gentle cleansing formula keeps your little one fresh and soft. Check out more natural baby care products in India here.

  • Ditch the shampoo for a Hair Cleanser

Your little one’s hair is equally delicate like the skin. It needs products that do not disturb its natural texture and properties. Shampoos contain many chemicals like sulphates, silicones, parabens, and artificial colours or scents to make it more alluring to the buyers. This can take a toll on your baby’s soft tresses and leave them brittle and dry.

Hair cleansers have a mild formula, which makes it perfect for baby use. Maaté’s Baby Hair Cleanser serves the purpose of cleaning the hair well, along with providing nourishment and making it softer and smoother. Enriched with natural ingredients, you can find the baby cleanser here.

  • Body Butters instead of creams

Your baby’s skin needs more moisturization and hydration than the adult’s skin. This is because the body itself cannot provide moisture and thus, the skin tends to get dry and irritated often. For such needs, body cream or lotion wouldn’t be able to provide enough moisture that a body butter would be able to. This is because body butters have high penetrative properties and the thick consistency prevents dryness more effectively. Body creams and lotions do not penetrate deep into the skin.

If you are looking for a natural body butter for babies, then try out Maaté’s Baby Body Butter and Baby Face Butter, which is designed specifically to cater to the needs of your young one by providing intense moisturization. For the soft and supple skin of your child, check out the body butter here.
