Emerging brands for baby skincare products in India
There’s nothing as soft as the skin of a baby. And nothing like an infant irritated by diaper rash, or another skin condition. While your baby is perfect, their skin may not be. You probably already know this, but you don’t want to use your adult products on the baby. Until infants are about one year old, it’s best to use soaps and shampoos that are specifically formulated for them.
Gone were the days when we use to have only one brand that was Johnson & Johnson. Now many brands are available in the market but the best are the ones which suit your child skin or the ones which you can trust. Many claims to be ayurvedic, some to be parabens and sulphates free and whatnot. So I have numbered them in order of availability and popularity among the public.
