Did you know that a baby’s skin is up to 20-30% thinner than adults? Or that a newborn’s skin loses moisture up to nearly two times faster than an adult?
When it comes to the beauty products you’re using on your baby, you want to know they’re safe, suited to your babe’s delicate skin and will also work. So we thought we’d share three brands we’re currently loving (and using ourselves). They’re made with soothing ingredients such as aloe vera and chamomile and feature products that are Sulphate and Paraben free. Your child will also love some of the cute motifs they’ve incorporated into the packaging…

Le bébé Coo
Celebrity favourite Le bébé Coo is so chic, it’s tempting to just leave these products in your bathroom cabinet. Don’t do that: what’s inside these elegant bottles is too good not to use. Jessie Laiken and partner Tyler Harrison created Le bébé Coo after searching for a solution for her child’s skin allergies. They couldn’t find one, so they launched their own brand. The result is a collection of gentle, effective products which blend safe, natural ingredients with organic extracts and vitamins. All products are free from Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, Formaldehyde and dyes. The Spf 45 Wipes are genius (makes applying sun cream on your child so much easier) and we also love the Leave-In Conditioner Detangler (perfect if you’ve got a daughter who hates having her hair brushed).

It’s hard not to fall in love with the native Australian animals that feature on the bottles in the Du’it Baby range. It means you can incorporate fun learning into your child’s bathtime. Each product is made with pure high quality blends of natural extracts and premium certified organic oils. The Baby Liquid Powder is ideal for babies who have extra sensitive skin. The Baby Facial Serum (which features a picture of a kookaburra) is formulated to help soothe and heal any discomfort caused by milk rash, dribble rash, chafing and windburn. Ideal for cooler months when skin gets dry and irritated.

Melbourne brand Sukin has recently launched its new Baby range (how cute is the little koala on the bottles?). There are five products in the range which have been specifically formulated to provide caring, natural products for babies. The body wash is made using soothing ingredients such as aloe vera and chamomile, and nourishing avocado and evening primrose oils while the shampoo contains sweet almond oils for soft silky locks. All products are Sulphate and Paraben Free and suitable for newborns.
