Baby skin – lucrative, but challenging. 11.2017

The skincare market for babies is growing. The reason for this is clear: the baby care market is lucrative. Parents have always been careful with what they put on their baby’s skin, but with the consumer’s increasing level of knowledge this trend is expanding. Parents want the best for their baby. They are willing to spend money to provide their baby with the best there is, including skincare.

As with everything in life, understanding the problem allows for providing the solution and for baby skincare there is no difference. Not that baby’s skin is a ‘problem’, but it is definitely more delicate than adult skin. The expectations are high, too. Parents want quick and visible results, especially when there is a problem. The delicacy of a baby’s skin implies that the skin shows irritation more often than adult skin. This may look like a dry patch, but it might also be redness, itchiness and even eczema-like problems. Because the protective functions of baby’s skin are not fully formed, it needs extra protection. And parents are extremely careful about the ingredients they put on their baby’s skin.

This means it is important to be smart about developing skincare products for babies. They should be mild, as natural as possible and be effective.  CLR has a strong range of products, which helps the cosmetic scientist to develop successful and relevant baby care products.
