A baby's skin is barrier is delicate and sensitive, so you should pamper your baby's skin with the best products possible. Baby products are specifically designed for the tender skin of babies. Baby creams are used to soothe rashes, reduce redness on the skin, combat itchy and rough skin. A formula that contains clean and eco-friendly ingredients increases the chance of your baby's skin feeling soft and looking healthy.¹³ Baby creams are typically formulated with natural ingredients to keep the baby's skin soft and supple. A cream for your baby has several benefits.
Our Biome Barrier Cream maximizes the hydration in the skin to support and improve the skin's barrier function. Maximizing hydration increases protection from harmful outside factors while locking in moisture. Many benefits come from using our Biome Barrier Cream. Some benefits include reducing allergen penetration, water loss, and supporting the skin's lipid barrier.¹⁴ Biome Barrier Cream is the perfect after-bath time cream! It will keep your little one's skin nice and smooth, locking in the moisture after the bath.
Body cream treats and prevents dry, cracked skin while keeping it supple and moisturized like the lotion.¹⁵ Because it provides a barrier that offers ultra-hydration, it's best for dry to excessively dry skin and for normal skin during the harsher winter months. Babies' skin needs much more attention since it has low lipid content and undergoes a gradual adaptation to the external environment during the first year. Babies’ skin is thin, sensitive, and fragile¹⁶ so it’s important to ensure the products you use are incredibly safe, free from chemicals, hypoallergenic, and differ from the composition of adult ones. Any harsh, chemical products can make the skin dry and prone to allergies, leading to irritation. You may realize your toddlers' and infants' skin is soft, making it susceptible to irritation.
Parents should search for products that are:
- Made from natural ingredients
- Free of chemicals
- Free of toxins
- Free of parabens
- Free of sulfates
