Baby Skin and Hair Care Basics for First Time Parents  

You hatched the baby; Janma hatched the perfect skin and hair food

A baby’s skin is fragile and loses moisture very quickly. A baby’s scalp requires the same amount of care as the rest of the body. When your baby is around two months old, you can start a hair care routine to stimulate growth and improve their hair quality.

Both skin and hair need gentle, natural, organic, and chemical-free products. Picking up skin and hair products for babies can be tricky. Every new mom looks for products that are safe and provides nourishment. As moms, we go through our own set of trials and victories, and it’s totally okay if you falter while you’re experimenting. No one’s judging anyway!

However, if you are a new parent, you might be confused with the tons of baby care products available. You may even wonder if all these products are safe, natural, and essential for your little one. It’s a huge responsibility to care for the newborn’s skin. As your baby’s immune system develops and fortifies in the first few months, you would want to use the mildest cleansers and a tad bit of mositurisers. But when dry skin, eczema, or diaper rashes appear, it’s time to treat those problems immediately. Talk to your pediatrician about when to begin using products.

Here are some tips before you start shopping:

Baby Massage Oil

Newborn babies are wiggly, and giving them an oil massage can be a task. Choose a gentle-nourishing oil to massage your baby’s skin. A warm oil massage is the perfect pre or post-bath-time ritual because it soothes the babies and gets them ready for a nap. Janma’s miracle massage oil is a perfect blend of 13 powerful essential oils like almond, coconut, sesame, hempseed, and organic ghee, a fantastic moisturiser that makes the baby’s skin super soft. Inspired by Ayurveda, Janma’s Miracle Massage Oil is enriched with Jeshtamadh and Anantmool, which replenishes your baby’s skin, makes their bones and muscles stronger, and enhances their growth and development. Use slow and positive strokes, not spending too much time in one area. A regular massage with gentle and loving touch helps parents grow their bond with their child and lead to a baby’s healthy cognitive development.

Baby Body Wash and Cleanser

Natural baby skincare products are the safest option for your cuddly ones. There’s no denying that ancient child care methods are today backed by science. With the backing of research, modern ayurvedic, natural-organic products today are a rich source of wholesome nourishment, just like Janma’s Gentle Body Cleanser wraps your baby with the goodness of cucumber, oats, rosemary and other ayurvedic herbs. These provide hydration and much-needed moisture and maintain their skin’s pH level. Coconut and turmeric in the cleanser relieve any irritation the baby may have. These ingredients are gingerly hand-picked by us because when it comes to babies, we’re not compromising.

Baby Nourishing and Soothing Lotion

To understand why baby lotion is different, we need a skin 411. Our skin comprises of three layers. The epidermis is the outer layer. It forms a “corneal layer” and a barrier of sebum, your skin’s natural oil, to help keep it moisturised and protected. The dermis is below the epidermis layer and contains collagen and elastin, two of the main components contributing to your skin’s suppleness, firmness and elasticity. And lastly, the hypodermis is the skin’s deepest layer, mostly of fatty cells called adipocytes.

Your baby’s fragile skin isn’t fully developed and is delicate for different reasons. When the baby is born, the pH of their skin is close to neutral (compared to the more acidic skin of adults), making their skin more sensitive. And now, with that bit of science under your belt, it’s easy for you to decide on a lotion specifically designed for your baby’s skin.

Most lotions are hypoallergenic, which means they are specially formulated to minimise the risk of allergic reactions. Janma’s Nourishing and Soothing Lotion is developed with scientific research and guidance from healthcare professionals. Enriched with avocado oil, butter, organic ghee, and a blend of herbs, it nourishes, moisturises and hydrates without leaving the skin sticky or heavy. We bet you and your precious one will embrace tons of wonderful, natural ingredients.

Crafted specifically to replenish, soothe, and restore your baby’s delicate skin, this lotion is gentle enough to use even on your baby’s delicate eyelids and newborn skin.

Baby Balancing Shampoo

Baldy head is cute, but a head full of hair isn’t that bad either. A newborn’s scalp and hair are fragile and need extra caution and care. Despite spending most of their time sleeping, their head and hair are prone to getting grubby and tangled. The most important thing to note while caring for your baby’s soft hair is to be extra careful and avoid putting pressure on the delicate region of your baby’s head. It’s important you develop a healthy bathtime routine that cares for their sensitive skin and hair, and Janma’s Balancing Shampoo does exactly that. Enriched with coconut, moringa, and arnica, our balancing shampoo nourishes the baby’s hair and treats any inflammation on their scalp. Coupled with natural herbs, hydrolysed silk protein strengthens their hair roots, leaving them soft and shiny. Also, just a reminder: go gentle on combing, it’s nothing but a pack of silk strands.
