Your baby’s skin is a protective covering against the outside world. It’s also a source of interaction, awakening and emotion connected with each of your baby’s senses.
Since skin provides protection and aids sensory development, it needs specific care and your full attention from the time your baby is born. In order to give your baby’s skin the care it needs each day, you need to be able to recognize your baby’s skin type, fully understand the needs and use the right products for that skin type.

Understanding normal baby skin
At birth, babies have an immature skin barrier. Your baby’s skin is highly delicate and vulnerable to daily outside attacks, and does not reach the first stage of maturity until the age of two. Between birth and age two, a baby’s skin is not yet able to retain the proper level of moisture it needs for its cells to function properly.
A baby’s skin has an unsuspected source of strength at birth: a reserve of stem cells, unique for an entire lifetime, enabling skin to regenerate all through life, but extremely vulnerable and fragile until the age of 2.
