Your little one’s delicate skin needs a lot of pampering when it comes to body care products. More sensitive, porous, dryer and more vulnerable to infections than adult skin, your baby’s skin needs body creams and washes that are safe and kind to their soft skin.
At JOMAR, we are parents ourselves and understand all too well how important it is to only use skin care products with the right ingredients. We handpick every ingredient that goes into our products to ensure our range nurtures your baby’s skin. Gently cleansing, soothing, nourishing and protecting the delicate skin of babies and toddlers, each product is suitable for all skin conditions, even for sensitive or irritated skin.
So, how do we do it? The answer is simple: with clever, well-researched combinations of ingredients that include moisturising complexes, vitamins, antioxidants, essential oils, botanical oils and butters, all sourced from nature!
From experience, we know that any ingredient, even those carefully sourced from nature, could be harmful to little ones. Thus, we take stock of the quality of each component, its concentration and the combination of ingredients each product contains.
Our goal is to achieve a perfectly safe product, every time, filled with nourishing, protecting and repairing qualities, but still with a lovely texture and pleasant, natural fragrance.
Want to know what our five favourite ingredients for babies’ skin are? Check it out below.
1. Coconut oil
Used for anything from substituting traditional cooking oil to hair and skin care, coconut oil has been a favourite staple in many people’s pantries.
However, as an ingredient in body care products for babies, it provides so many benefits that your baby will love. Coconut oil is packed with vitamins and healthy fats, not to mention anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and moisturising benefits.
It is also gentle on baby’s skin and safe to use as is or in a product formulation to treat common baby skin conditions such as dry skin, skin irritations, eczema and cradle cap.
