Babies’ skin is five times thinner than adults’. It's still developing and therefore requires special protection. A baby's subcutaneous fat tissue is built differently and moisture can easily be lost through the thin, lean stratum corneum. Highly sensitive skin needs very special care.
Our fragrance free White Mallow baby care range with organic white mallow extract provides a protective coating for highly sensitive to atopic skin. Carefully selected natural ingredients care for the skin, provide intense moisture and support the skin’s own strength.
White Mallow works holistically on the skin. It soothes, calms and protects highly sensitive skin and attenuates an excess of external stimuli. This is especially thanks to the polysaccharides in its roots, which combine with water to form a gel which retains moisture, soothes and envelops the skin with a protective layer. The white mallow used in our products is grown organically in Germany and Eastern Europe.
It is best to wash your baby with clean water at a pleasant body temperature (around 37° C). You can also add a fragrance free replenishing oil, like Weleda’s unperfumed Calendula Baby Oil to the water. Gently massage affected areas and use a damp cloth to gently wipe away.
Clothes made from organic cotton, silk or linen feel very comfortable on the skin. Cut out laundry labels and use fragrance free laundry detergent. For acute itching, cut fingernails and put cotton gloves on your baby overnight. An allergy test can identify any food intolerances.
Fixed quiet time, plenty of sleep and routines for daily activities and bedtime provide security and calm. Take your baby out into the fresh air regularly and air the room your baby stays in several times a day. And take time for yourself, because your stress also affects your baby. If you are relaxed, your baby can relax too.
Adults with sensitive or neurodermitic skin can also benefit from the caring, soothing effect of the Baby Derma White Mallow range. The White Mallow Body Lotion soothes, provides the skin with valuable moisture and alleviates irritations.
“Highly sensitive skin requires particularly gentle care and few, but high quality, natural ingredients.”
