As you know there are so many baby soaps and soap washes available in India and abroad. Here in India Johnson’s products have become a home name for baby products. Now slowly Himalaya and Chicco are building their brand names.
I stated off with Johnson baby moisture wash (made in US). It was mild, but I noticed my baby tanning a bit. Also, it could not wash off heavy oils such as coconut or sesame oil.
So I next moved to Johnson baby head to toe wash, it was a part of a gift set given to me by a lot of friends and relatives. Again I stopped because of some kind of tanning and complexion changes.
Next I moved to Himalaya soap, it worked very well on my baby. As it was summer it was a great soap and I used it for 2 months. Even cost wise it was perfect.
The weather started changing in Bangalore weather, and it started drying my baby’s skin. and the soap did sting the eyes. So next…
I used Johnson baby soap, same effect.. so next..
Tedibar soap. This was suggested by a friend of mine who is a doctor. It has the perfect PH balance, made by Curatiohealthcare. It worked like magic on my baby’s skin. Im going to continue using this soap for a long long time.
Some more suggestions: I heard Cetaphil also makes very good soaps, if your baby has eczema I suggest Cetaphil Moisture wash.
Two other popular brands now are Chicco and Pigeon.
If your not looking at cost Mothercare has excellent soaps and bodywashes.
We tried the besan haldi thing but it dried out my baby skin and my baby is allergic to turmeric.
- Always buy a small unit and try for a day or two
- Every baby is different
- Check for a Ph neutral soap
- Choose soaps with little or no perfume
