Mothers always are on the hunt for the best products for their little ones, right? And of course it is very much essential to look out for the best products for babies when it comes to something that has to be used on their skin, like shampoos. A baby’s skin is 20-30% thinner than adult skin, so unless that ingredient list is being thoroughly checked for the right products, it should not be used on them.
When it comes to baby shampoos, you need to be really particular about certain things to look for in the shampoo, and those are:
Should be chemical free: It should be devoid of harmful chemicals like parable, SLS, phthalates or even artificial fragrance.
Clinically tested: The product should be dermatologically tested and also should be gentle and hypo allergic. Also it should be pH balanced.
Natural ingredients: Rather than having all fancy chemicals in the ingredient list, it should be comprised majorly of natural ingredients.
No tear formula: The shampoo should not cause tears for babies.
