As we all know, baby’s skin is soft and delicate; and it has a very important role to play in a baby’s health, including preventing infection and reducing the number of allergens and irritants that penetrate the skin. However, despite having such an important function, baby’s skin does not fully develop until after 12 months from birth. It is during this critical stage, that soaps and harsh surfactants could play a role in weakening your baby’s skin barrier; and a weakened skin barrier can then lead to other symptoms of eczema, such as redness, itch and inflammation, in babies who have a genetic predisposition.
This is where QV Baby can help, with its dermatologically-tested range of mild and moisturising gentle washes, baby bars, bath oils, barrier creams and skin lotions, specially developed for delicate skin. Recommended by paediatricians, QV Baby understands and knows how important it is to use only the gentlest of products on your baby’s skin, to ensure that your baby’s skin barrier is supported and protected during this formative time.
