You want the best for your baby. With ingredients continually being deemed 'questionable' or downright 'unsafe', how can you know what you're getting when you buy baby toiletries? Your best bet is to seek out products that are as natural as possible.
Are natural products better for everyone?
To be clear, skincare that isn’t 100% natural is perfectly safe for adolescents and adults. Skin has become seasoned by the teen years and may even start to age in the 20s. This tougher skin might require more cleansing and treatment power than a natural product can offer.
The ingredient lists on products formulated for adults are often jam-packed with chemical names for things like preservatives, humectants, and hydrators. These ingredients are generally recognised as safe for the skin and can even be naturally derived.
In other words, when you're shopping for yourself, don’t shy away from a product just because you don’t recognise every word on the label. The exception might be if you have extremely reactive skin, in which case you should become an ingredient detective AND follow a doctor's advice.
Then why are natural products important for babies?
If you're concerned about product safety, it’s much easier to choose products that are made with easily understood ingredients. This saves you from having to use your smartphone in shops to search the Web for the definition of every chemical name.
Some chemicals are naturally and even organically derived. But when the baby’s crying and you’d rather just be in bed with a tub of gelato, you don't want to spend any more time shopping than you have to. We get it!
Natural products are a terrific shortcut to optimal skin health and overall health for your little one. Natural brands tend to include fewer ingredients in their formulas and stick to substances that work well for a baby’s skin. You won't see any unnecessary junk (looking at you, mineral oil) in natural baby products.
