So Delicate And Vulnerable

No wonder: The sensitive skin of a baby is not fully developed and therefore 5 times thinner than an adult's. The epidermal layer of the skin and its protective acid mantle do not yet have high stability, and also the development of the sweat and sebaceous glands are in an infant still incomplete. It will take all in all 10 years until young skin is similar to that of an adult. A good reason to give our little ones everything they need.

The ratio of body weight to the body surface is in children considerably greater than in adults. Water loss, but also environmental factors such as UV radiation or temperature changes have significant consequences on the young, delicate skin. It then not only reacts with little inflammations. Exuding eczema on the cheeks are also not uncommon. But even when choosing the proper and gentle skin care you have to be very careful: Externally applied active ingredients may cause in children a much stronger skin reaction than we adults expect. Care products specifically for sensitive skin are therefore an absolute must have, if you want to get it perfectly right.

Our Protection-Tip:

  • Regular moisturizing is vitally important for healthy baby skin in the first two years. If young skin is not supplied with sufficient fat and moisture, that can lead to dehydration, redness and flaking through to painful itchiness. But no worries, all that is easy enough to avoid: We suggest Herbacin wuta®kamille Skin Care Cream with the soothing healing powers of natural chamomile and gentle moisture-regulating care agents. A real plus for every household with little children.
  • What most parents don’t know: Excessively frequent bathing can damage the barrier function of young skin, and it thus loses its natural elasticity. One to two baths a week are completely sufficient for babies. However, they should not take longer than 10 minutes. Some mild bath products - such as Herbacin Spa Baths or Herbal Baths for example - provide gentle cleansing and essential moisture in one. So gentle actually, that they are also perfectly suited for baby skin. Excessively rich and fatty creams, however, have a rather counterproductive effect on baby's and children’s skin.
