Your babies are your little bundles of happiness and you don’t want any harm coming their way. As delicate as they are, their skins too are very frail and sensitive. We put a lot of thought into the kind of clothes we buy for our kids, the toys they’d like, the colours on their bedding. But how many of us actually think a lot before buying soaps and other skin care products? Here is a list our favourite baby soaps. Enjoy!
1. Weleda Calendula Soap
This soap bar is considered to be one of the best products for baby skin. Although a little on the expensive side, this gentle soap is infused with organic calendula and chamomile flower extracts, as well as iris root extracts. These elements help your baby retain their soft and supple skin. The iris root extract helps to lock your baby’s skin moisture while mildly cleansing it. It also acts as a natural moisturizer and has a light fragrance.
2. The Honest Company Bubble Bath
This foaming bubble bath is a product by Jessica Alba’s famous brand – The Honest Company. This natural scented bubble bath creates lots of bubbles while still being hypoallergenic and free of sulfates, parabens, and phthalates. Being devoid of all these chemical ingredients, it has a lot of other supplementary ingredients such as –chamomile, aloe, coconut oil, jojoba and quinoa proteins. This combination helps to soothe, moisturize and gently clean the skin. It is available in three calming scents -Dreamy Lavender, Sweet Orange Vanilla, and Apricot Kiss.

5. Mustela Stelatopia Milky Bath Oil
If your baby suffers from super-dry skin as a result of eczema, this is the perfect product for your little one. It is free from soap, fragrance and parabens, specifically formulated to prevent and reduce skin flare-ups. This oil preserves the hydro-lipid film of the baby’s skin with the help of super fatted agents. The sunflower oil hydrates, distills and replenishes lipids on the skin while reducing dryness and itching.
