Taking care of FirstLove

As we all know how sensitive a baby skin is. So, knowing this fact, we should gather all essential information and consequences of the products that we are going to use on their skin. Today's life, we are not interested about knowing the ingredient contents of a product and believe it blindly which is not so good and results in problem in many cases.

As I am going to talk about the advantages of the Natural oil and disadvantages of Baby oil on babies skin. I would like to highlight some facts about the Baby oil available in the market. Most of the baby oil which are available in the market are the byproduct of the distillation of gasoline from crude oil which is a foreign material to baby skin. These are synthetic oil which are harmful to human health. These mineral oils are viscous and when applied in the skin, block the pores of the skin. The sweating plays vital role in detoxification from the body. Since, the sweating does not take place properly causes the toxins to stay inside the body which is quite harmful to health. So, mineral oil and petrochemical products should never be used on baby skin.

The best natural oils which can be used in place are coconut oil, olive oil and Shea butter. These organic oil can be used with Lavender or Essential Oil to make as moisturizer or massage oil. Vegetable oils like, Sunflower oil or grape seed oil can be used if the baby has sensitive skin. These vegetable oils contain linoleic acid, contains essential fatty acid which is useful to protect barrier element of baby's skin. Apart from this, we need to analyze the type of skin a baby has. If a baby has dry skin or atopic eczema, the vegetable oils should not be used as it has linoleic acid. Coconut oil is believed to be a good choice in the hot summer months. It is easily available and has a cooling effect on the body. According the experts, the vegetable oil can easily be digested when the baby sucks the oil smeared thumb. Mustard oil is preferred for giving massages in cold weather as it warms the body.

So, final comments are, We should not go with the TV advertisements blindly for everything. We have lot of resources available around to do some R&D for a product we are going to purchase and use, specially when it comes to Edibles and Skin related products. Baby's skin are very sensitive, so it needs to be taken care properly.
