Selecting the right Soap for your Baby

The skin of babies is much more gentle and sensitive than of
adults. Hence it is important to carefully select the right soap bar for your
baby. There are numerus options of baby soaps available in the
market. It may be a difficult task to pick the right one for you baby. As baby
skin is very sensitive, it requires gentle care. Use of mild soap is
recommended for babies. Here are a few factors to consider while selecting the
right soap:

Ingredients of the Soap Bar:

Carefully read the ingredients of the soap. Choose the baby
soap that is gentle. Avoid the soaps that have alcohol, parabens, glycol, propylene or harmful
chemicals. Such harsh soaps can be allergic to skin. For over sensitive baby skin, there is a separate range of
baby soap. Make sure you select from these hypoallergic soaps. Select the soaps
that have natural ingredients like shea butter, almond, milk, honey, oatmeal and
olive oil.

pH level of baby soaps:

The pH value of the soap is very important in order to not
damage the baby’s skin. pH 7 is neutral. Anything more than pH 7 is acidic. It
is highly recommended to buy baby soap with pH value between 4.5 and 6. pH 5.5
is ideal for baby skin. Also, at pH 5.5 does not cause eye irritation. Hence, pH
5.5 soap has an added advantage of being a tear free soap.

Fragrance and Lather:

It is advisable to select a fragrance free or low fragrance
soap. The baby soap should have mild lather.
