Do you agree that your baby’s skin is actually quite magical? They’re soft, silky-smooth, and for the most part, they actually smell good.
Although their skin has those inherent properties, it is quite so delicate that it may be sensitive to irritants, bacteria, fungi, and chemicals. These things will contribute to the dryness of the skin, which is something that you do not want to happen on your baby.
According to the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Database, you can actually provide your baby with some baby lotion that will not only help combat skin dryness, but also make it aversive to some irritants and contaminants as well. In this article, I will go over some of the best baby lotions of 2019.
Aquaphor Healing Ointment
This ointment actually gives your baby some multipurpose protection. It can be used as a spot treatment of irritated skin, which includes minor cuts, dry patches, chapped lips, diaper rashes, rosy cheeks, and a host of other conditions.
The good thing about this product is that it doesn’t have any fragrance or good smells, but it is also preservative-free as well, so you can be assured that it doesn’t damage your baby’s delicate skin.
Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion
You want to provide long-lasting nourishment to the skin of your baby, which is why this moisturizing lotion by Aveeno is the perfect accompaniment to a good baby bath.
It has one (not-so-secret) ingredient that ensures that your baby’s skin will never dry out. What is that ingredient, you ask? Well, it is actually Oatmeal. It has been scientifically proven that Oatmeal prevents dry skin from ever happening and it also maintains a healthy and normal pH level as well. Not only that but it is also non-greasy and it is fast-absorbing; making it a quick fix if you see that your baby’s skin has started to get dry.
Johnson’s Head-to-Toe Lotion
The brand has been known for its baby products for years and some parents swear-by the use of some of them for your baby.
Their Head-to-Toe lotion is considered to be a post-bath time staple by many parents, simply because it ensures that your baby’s skin won’t run dry. It is enriched with Vitamin E which is known to make skin healthy. It is also free of phthalates, parabens, or dyes.
Its fragrance is controversial, though, as some parents love it and some parents think that it is too strong (even for adults). Still, you can try this out for your baby and see the results.
CeraVe Baby Lotion
Do you know what Ceramides are? They are actually naturally oils that are normally found in the skin. They help keep the moisture in place and prevent your skin from dryness and itchiness. That being said, during the normal course of the day, your baby might lose some-much needed Ceramides, which is why CeraVe’s baby lotion has been touted to be one that will ensure moisture all throughout the day.
This lotion provides your baby with Ceramides to make their skin moisturized for the duration of the day and parents can rest easy, knowing that it doesn’t contain any parabens or phthalates.
California Baby Everyday Lotion
Some babies have more sensitive skin than others. California Baby’s Everyday lotion for your child is a pretty good moisturizer that uses both Aloe Vera and Pure Organic Calendula extracts to form an amazing lotion that will leave your baby’s skin soft and silky throughout the rest of the day. You can choose from a variety of different fragrances, but you can also opt for the fragrance-free variant if you want.
