COSMETIC PRODUCTS FOR CHILDREN

Any mom will say that children's cosmetics should be natural and safe.

What cosmetics are really needed for children? First of all, for cleaning and nourishment.

For children under 3 years of age, only hair shampoo, a delicate body cleanser, creams (thicker in winter, lighter in summer but with sun protection) may suffice. For females, there is a need to add hair care products (conditioner, mask).

cleaners. 

Soap, gel, bath foam, cleansing lotions act directly on the skin's acid mantle. Using them too often risks damaging the hydrolipidic film, causing dryness and irritation.

Choose a product with a pH of 5.5. Any higher or lower pH can damage the epidermal barrier and protective functions of the skin.

For daily use it is best to use very very mild cleansers with surfactants such as Decyl Glucoside, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Lauryl Glucoside, Gliceryl Oleate etc. These components gently cleanse baby's skin and do not damage their natural barrier. 

Instead, natural soap is absolutely to be avoided. Unfortunately, with daily use it destroys the microflora of the child's skin (even that of the adult! If you have dyshidrosis on your hands, it could be due to a very aggressive soap or detergent). Don't use bubble bath often. Even this too prolonged procedure destroys the protective layer of the skin. It is safe only if it lasts no more than 15 minutes and the water temperature does not exceed 35 degrees. Always pay attention to INCI!

Sometimes a bubble bath is used to relax the baby and reduce fussing. In this case, it can be replaced by a few drops of lavender oil or chamomile and sage infusion. 

Baby skin creams 

The moisturizer is chosen with the following criteria:
* Baby cream should be of the "water and oils" type, i.e. a fairly fat cream.
* Every cosmetic for the baby shouldn't be rich in so many components, this would protect him from possible allergic reactions.
* the product must be as natural as possible (NO paraffinum liquidum, petrolatum, mineral oil, vaseline, paraffin, propylene glycol, etc.)
* Avoid fragrances if your child has allergies, dermatitis, eczema or other skin conditions. Otherwise light fragrances are acceptable.
