Mustela offers ranges adapted to every skin type whether normal, dry, sensitive or eczema-prone.
For 70 years, Mustela of Laboratoires Expanscience has been conducting research programs in Dermatology with world-renowned scientists, to better understand the skin of babies, children, expectant and new mothers, and thus meet its specific needs. Mustela® has discovered and scientifically demonstrated that babies have different skin types from birth:
- NORMAL SKIN, which is soft and supple with no imperfection, needs to be moisturised and protected every day
- DRY SKIN, which is rough and flaky sometimes, needs to be deeply nourished and protected
- VERY SENSITIVE SKIN, which reddens and gets easily irritated, needs to be soothed and protected
- ECZEMA-PRONE SKIN, which is prone to extreme dryness and itchiness, needs to be replenished, soothed and protected.
In order to minimise the risk of an allergic reaction, Mustela carries out more than 450 measurements and tests on each product before its marketing to ensure its quality, safety and efficacy: Mustela carries out in vitro tests on models of baby skin of different ages (a patented worldwide exclusivity called Stelaskin®) to validate the tolerance of its formulas before testing them in real conditions of use on infants under 1 month old and babies.
*Formulated to minimise the risk of an allergic reaction
Mustela excludes a "red" list of ingredients, beyond the regulatory requirements, with 0% parabens, phthalates, phenoxyethanol, ammonium lauryl sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate, MIT/MCIT (methylisothiazolinone / methylchoroisothiasolinone), cyclotetrasiloxane, p-Phenylenediamine and analogous compounds, BHA, benzophenone, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, EDTA, triclosan, alcohol (ethanol), essential oils, etc.
Soft and supple skin requires daily hydration and protection. Avocado Perseose®, a patented active ingredient in all Mustela baby products, works to reinforce the skin moisture barrier and maintain hydration.
Which is rough and flaky sometimes, needs to be deeply nourished and protected. The cold cream in the Dry Skin range is infused with beeswax, which nourishes the skin. When applied to the skin it forms a protective barrier and helps seal in much-needed moisture.
Very Sensitive skin
Which reddens and gets easily irritated, needs to be soothed and protected. Extracted from a berry traditionally used in Eastern Medicine, Mustela selected Schizandra for its Very Sensitive Skin range. This patented active ingredient reduces redness and minimises skin discomfort.
Which is prone to extreme dryness and itchiness, needs to be replenished, soothed and protected. In its Eczema-Prone Skin range, Mustela has selected Sunflower Oil Distillate as a key patented active ingredient. It replenishes and maintains a healthy skin barrier by boosting ceramide production up to 3X.
