NEW BORN SKIN CARE :
Why does a new born need special care ?
❤️ Skin in newborns is delicate and has a weaker physical structure as compared to a fully developed skin.
❤️ Infant skin is particularly very sensitive to cleansing agents as they contain stronger chemicals and can be drying.
❤️ Topical Creams are more rapidly and easily absorbed into infant skins making them more prone to side effects.
❤️ Skin problems related to dryness are very common in babies.
