Healthy Baby Skin Care

When it comes to diaper rash, parents would be wise to use baby skin care products free of artificial colors, synthetic fragrances and petrochemicals, which are themselves irritants.  

Look for pure baby skin care products for diaper rash with natural healing essential oils such as Calendula and Chamomile.  Baby friendly healing herbs to look for in diaper rash cream and diaper rash ointment include:-

  • Calendula: Calendula provides anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial activities and stimulates cellular regeneration of healthy skin.

  • Chamomile: Chamomile inhibits the release of histamine and decreases the inflammatory response. It stimulates cellular regeneration of healthy skin.

  • Rose Hip: Rose Hip contains high levels of vitamin C and bioflavonoids which strengthen blood vessel walls, increasing vascular resistance and integrity and thus improving skin circulation.
