Want to maintain that coveted baby soft skin? Pick the right lotions and potions to keep your little one’s sensitive skin clean, moisturized and free of eczema. Three companies have just launched amazing new collections that can help. Read on to get the scoop on Baby Dove, Mustela Bebe and Promise Organic Baby, and to choose which one is best for you and your baby.
For Parents Who Love Tried and Tested Brands: Baby Dove
Dove has been around for 60 years, but this is the first line ever created just for babies. The just-launched collection includes five “Rich Moisture” products and three “Sensitive Moisture” products, so you can choose the best option for your baby’s skin type. You’ll love that the products are budget-friendly, simple and easy to find in big box stores that you’re probably already grabbing diapers and other baby necessities at anyway.
In the Rich Moisture line, you’ll find a soap bar, baby wash, shampoo, lotion and hand and face wipes, which all have a light, baby-friendly fragrance. The baby wash and bar both boast 1/4 moisturizing cream to keep your baby’s skin hydrated.
The Sensitive Moisture products – a baby wash, lotion and hand and face wipes – are all fragrance free to accommodate babies who have skin that’s more easily irritated.
Available at dove.com, $2.47-$7.99.
For Babies With Tricky Skin Types: Mustela Bebe
Mustela already had a beloved skincare line in their collection – the products, which are mostly natural, have a fresh baby scent many parents rave about. But the French company, which has been caring for mom and baby skin since 1950, just revamped their offerings for babies.
Now, there are four different lines to choose from depending on your baby’s skin type: Normal, Dry, Very Sensitive and Eczema-Prone. Each one includes a suite of products for tackling bath time, quick cleansing on the go, moisturizing and more. All four formulas include Avocado Pereose, which helps to protect and hydrate skin.
The dry skin line also includes Ceramides infused with Cold Cream that deepen the products’ moisturizing power. Try the Nourishing Cleansing Gel with Cold Cream for a soap-free bath that won’t dry out babies skin, and the Hydra Stick, which is an amazing on-the-go solution to protect Baby’s cheeks from cold air and wind.
For very sensitive skin babies, the fragrance-free Mustela line also includes a berry extra that soothes discomfort of easily irritated skin. Try the Soothing Moisturizing Face Cream, which can be especially helpful when teething rashes occur or the Soothing Cleansing Wipes, which can keep baby clean on-the-go without irritation.
For eczema-prone babes, Mustela’s award-winning Stelatopia line reduces flare ups and itchiness with the help of Sunflower Oil. Try applying Stelatopia Emollient Cream right after Baby’s bath to lock in moisture and soothe skin.
Available at mustelausa.com, $3.49-$26.
For Eco-Minded Moms & Dads: Promise Organic Baby
Prefer a chemical-free concoction for your baby’s skin? Promise Organic Baby’s brand new baby care line is free of parabens, synthetic fragrances, artificial colors, phthalates, harsh preservatives and sulfates. But what is inside is a healthy helping of certified organic ingredients. They all contain USA-sourced oatmeal to soothe and nourish as well as a special hydrating blend of organic coconut oil and Fair Trade Certified Organic Shea Butter.
Conquer bath time with Coconut Butter 2-in-1 Baby Wash with Oatmeal followed by lathering Baby’s skin in Replenishing Coconut Butter Baby Lotion with Oatmeal. They both have a naturally-derived baby powdery-like fragrance created from bergamot, lavender, vanilla and chamomile. Knock out diaper rashes with the non-nano zinc oxide-based Gentle Coconut Butter Diaper Rash Cream with Oatmeal. And keep sensitive skin safe from the sun with the SPF 30 Sunscreen Baby Lotion, which includes non-nano zinc oxide along with a host of moisturizing oils to keep skin hydrated as it’s protected.
