Kind, gentle & soothing: discover our range of baby skincare products 

Having a baby is one of the most magical things we can experience, but if you’re wondering where to start when it comes to their bathing and skincare needs, you’re not alone. 

With so many baby skincare products out there, it can be overwhelming trying to choose what’s right for your baby, so we’re here to help you navigate your way through the options.

What is baby skincare?

Simply put, baby skincare is all about using products that have been made specifically for newborns and their delicate skin. 

Whether you opt for big brands, such as Aveeno and Johnson’s, or you prefer baby-specific brands, such as Child’s Farm or Boots Baby, find out what options are available for your little one’s specific needs.

Newborns in particular have very thin and easily damaged skin, and it takes a few weeks for their skin to develop its own natural, protective barrier. Because of this, the NHS advise that you don’t need to bathe your baby every day, but if they enjoy it there's no reason why you shouldn’t. You should use plain water and avoid using any skincare products for at least the first month – even if a product says it’s suitable for new-borns.

Why use bespoke baby products?

If you find yourself researching which products are best for your baby, chances are you’re wanting to find something that won’t irritate their sensitive skin. 

From shampoos and bubble baths to lotions and nappy creams, it’s best to use skincare products specifically made for babies. 

Although some everyday adult brands are formulated with sensitive skin in mind, bespoke baby products will often be fragrance-free, tear-free, or made with natural ingredients, so it’s important to stick to these.
