The importance of natural baby skin care

Getting into the routine of caring for a newborn baby can be a challenge. Making sure baby is warm, fed and clothed are of course imperatives, as is building your own sleep patterns around your newborn.

Of course you look for the best for your baby’s health and wellbeing but have you considered baby’s skin? At this stage of development, baby’s skin is immature, delicate and very responsive to ingredients contained in any lotions, powders or ointments applied to their sensitive skin.

Your baby’s immune system is just beginning to develop and the harmful chemicals that may be found in artificial skincare products have the potential to penetrate well into the young one’s body and bloodstream.

Chemicals such as preservatives, formaldehyde and parabens, colouring and fragrance used in creams may build up in baby’s skin and disrupt the natural hormones in baby’s body. This may cause growth and reproductive problems as well as disrupt normal endocrine functioning. With the immune system at such an early developing stage, skin rashes may easily be caused by harsh skincare products.

It is vitally important therefore to make sure that only natural, healthy skincare products are used next to baby’s skin as even small amounts of chemicals may cause significant damage to the baby’s health.

While baby’s skin acts a barrier, it can also be a transporter of harmful germs and chemicals. While it’s a general rule to keep baby products to a minimum in the first few months, those that are used should be as natural and healthy for your baby’s skin as possible.

"I'm just sending you this quick email to thank you for the Nougat Limar I ordered off your website last week. They arrived today and I am very happy with everything. I have had this nougat before and it remains one of my favourite things I've ever eaten. Now that I have found your website I will defiantly be back when my supply of nougat runs out, which shouldn't be long at all. "
