La Roche Posay’s Lipikar body care range, Thermal Spring Water and Cicaplast Baume B5 are all baby-friendly
All parents know that a new baby’s skin is ultra sensitive. Soft, and sweet smelling, but really fragile, therefore it’s smart to pick the right products to care for tiny tots’ skin, whatever age they are.
For bathtime: Lipikar Gentle Cleansing Oil
Suitable for children and babies (+ 3 months), La Roche-Posay Lipikar Gentle Cleansing Oil relieves any dry skin irritation and restores moisture to the skin. Enriched with niacinamide and shea butter, on contact with the water, the oil forms a soft emulsion that glides easily on skin. An ultra-gentle and nourishing cleansing oil ideal for babies’ bath time!
Post-bathtime: Lipikar Baume AP+
Moisturising babies’ skin is essential; always opt for the most gentle of formulas that are alcohol and paraben-free like the La Roche-Posay Lipikar Baume AP+ . Suitable for use on newborns, this emollient is specifically formulated for babies with sensitive dry, very dry or eczema-prone skin on the face and body. This gentle moisturising balm helps to lock in moisture into baby's skin after each bath, providing 48-hour hydration.
For nappy rash: Cicaplast Baume B5
Using a barrier cream to protect your baby’s bottom from nappy rash is a great preventative move. As soon as the first red bumps appear, apply La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 with its 5% panthenol and zinc formula. It’s soothing and anti-bacterial which is a perfect combination to protect and repair delicate areas.
For a bit of fresh air: Thermal Spring Water
Hot summer days can be difficult for the little ones to manage, so why not give them a break from the heat with a lovely mist of La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water? Soothing and gentle, it comes in small 50ml format, ideal to carry around in a nappy bag. With its naturally sourced silicates, selenium and zinc properties, it’s hydrating and contains antioxidants. Spritz and watch baby’s delight as the fine mist descends!
