Baby skin - why less is often more
FRAGRANCES IMPAIR PARENT-CHILD BONDING AND CAN TRIGGER ALLERGIES
For you as a mother or father, the smell of your baby is unmistakable. Your baby has been wearing this unique scent since the moment of birth and it immediately triggers feelings of happiness in you. This is set up by nature to strengthen the bond between parents and babies. Perfume and fragrances mask this natural smell and irritate your baby.

ALCOHOL DRIES OUT THE SKIN AND ATTACKS THE SKIN BARRIER
When people talk about alcohol in skin care products, they are usually referring to ethanol. Ethanol is used either as a preservative or as a solvent in the production of essential oils and plant extracts such as chamomile or calendula. It dries out the skin and attacks the skin's protective barrier. Thus ethanol impairs the already thin and permeable baby skin! Therefore, you should avoid products that contain ethanol. However, there are also well-tolerated so-called fatty alcohols that serve as emulsifiers. They do not impair the skin barrier and can therefore be used without hesitation. You will recognize them in the ingredients list as Cetearyl Alcohol or Stearyl Alcohol.
