It is quite easy to answer the question “What baby cream to choose?”. It is a cream that can perfectly moisturize skin, protect it from harsh weather conditions and prevent developing of diaper rash, inflammations and exfoliating. More difficult to find baby cream that meets these requirements.
Specificity of baby skin
Before choosing baby cream, try to figure out differences between baby and adult skin. They are different enough to replace baby cosmetic products with adults’ ones. Baby skin is much thinner and has a lower sensory threshold, internal skin processes in baby skin are not balanced yet, immune system doesn’t work properly and a lipid layer is still not created.
This is why every minor external change and internal disbalance may lead to the irritation, rash, itching and sometimes cause dermatological issues.
Main common factors to provoke baby skin issues are the following:
- Dry air in the central heated or air-conditioned rooms;
- Hard water;
- Skin prone to allergic reactions;
- Prolonged wearing of diapers or clothes;
- Harsh cloth;
- Use of inappropriate baby cosmetic products.
Winter time is more problematic in this sense because baby should be always dressed. The good decision is to use add baby oil to baby cream to nourish and moisturize skin with special oily ingredients, which can also protect baby skin with a protective screen on the skin surface.

If baby’s skin is healthy and does not have any issues, use all-purpose baby cream. It can provide skin with complex skincare and be used under diapers, for face skin protection during going out and as a nourishing and moisturizing product for the entire body skin.
