Compared to an adult’s, baby skin is smoother and softer, but more sensitive and prone to irritations. Newborn skin is very delicate and is 40-60% thinner than an adult’s, almost paper thin. Because the immune system has not yet fully developed, the skin is vulnerable against infections, heat and other environmental factors such as pollution. This is also the reason why infants are prone to developing rashes, redness and dryness.
Knowing this, it is crucial to choose the right products that are specifically formulated for the baby’s sensitive skin. This includes paying attention to the labels and ingredients used, ensuring that potentially harmful chemicals are not present.
