I am a big believer in the importance of children’s skincare. I was moisturised to within an inch of my life since a child, and I’m sure that can be the only reason why certain parts of my body still feel like a baby’s bottom (er….despite the onset of wrinkles!). So of course, I have kept on with the moisturising ritual for my daughter from birth up.
We have tried and tested so many different ranges over the last six years that I can safely say that these are now unanimously our faves:
This children’s skincare range has been with us the longest, and I am a religious advocate of their range. Their range does exactly what it says on the tin – it cleans, nourishes and cares and smells delicious and manages to do all that without any nasties, plus it’s pretty competitive on the price front compared to others. Check out the full Childs Farm range here.
Developed alongside paediatricians and dermatologists, Mustela’s Demo-pediatric childre’s skincare products have been specially designed to tackle skin issues our little ones always seem to be battling with, and they smell utterly delicious. The range contains no parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates or chlorophenesin and 95% of the ingredients are entirely natural. The active ingredient in most of the Mustela products is Avocado Perseose which works in perfect harmony with the most fragile skin types. Check out the full Mustela range here.
Another winner for sensitive skin, this super mild range is botanically based and fragrance free making it perfectly gentle, tear free and a saviour in fighting dryness. Although we are fans of the body wash and lotion, the SkinFix children’s skincare range gets extra brownie points for their eczema balm which is a star product when it comes to tackling eczema without the use of steroids. Check out the full SkinFix range here.
If you’re into your natural aromatics, Weleda is a lovely choice. Their entire range for littles is based around calendula extract which is the perfect natural ingredient to sooth skin naturally. We love the smell of thyme in the bath product and double thumbs up for having a specific face cream and separate weather protection cream for the harsh winter months — both of which can be rather challenging to find otherwise. Check out the full Weleda range for little ones here.
