Which products should I choose for my baby?
Which product should I use to wash my baby?
For your young children, care products containing allergens, irritants or endocrine disruptors should be avoided. Also, conventional soaps are too aggressive for a baby's skin.
Avène laboratories have therefore designed two ranges of baby hygiene products with a minimalist composition, and fragrance and soap-free, for perfect tolerance:
Which product should you use for nappy changing?
Infants are changed almost ten times a day for the first few weeks, then four to five times a day thereafter. Choosing adapted and ultra-tolerant baby care products is therefore essential for protecting your little one from redness, irritation andnappy rash.
More practical than a liniment, Avène Thermal Spring Water hydrates and soothes your baby's face and body in a single step. Bonus: there’s no need to rinse! It is the ideal product to carry in your changing bag for changing your baby’s nappy even when out and about. If your child has a nappy rash, Cicalfate+ Repairing Protective Cream will be ideal for soothing the irritation.
Simply pour a few drops onto a cotton wool pad and gently apply to the folds of the arms and legs.
Which baby care product should you use?
At birth, the skin of newborns is not yet mature and, therefore, very fragile when exposed to external aggressors and unsuitable cosmetic products.
The young skin barrier also secretes less sebum than an adult’s and, therefore, makes the epidermis prone to dehydration and dryness.
This is why you need to hydrate your baby’s skin daily with a hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and paraben-free cream. Our baby products are also designed to respond to common conditions in our little ones:
Use in the morning and evening, and keep it on your baby’s changing table. Use this moisturising treatment to massage your baby : an important way to bond with your baby for mothers and fathers.
Avène Thermal Spring Water completes every skincare routine for an anti-irritating and soothing action.
For persistent skin problems after leaving the maternity ward, we recommend that you consult a paediatrician for a personalised dermatological treatment.
Which sun care products should you use on babies?
Regardless of their skin tone, babies have thin, fragile skin that should be protected as much as possible from sun exposure by clothing, a hat and an umbrella.
Young skin has a low melanin content and is particularly vulnerable to the sun's UV rays. Sun care products with SPF 50+ complement the protection of clothing in areas at risk of exposure.
Our laboratories have designed a range of sun care products dedicated to babies and children. Discover these in the following textures: lotion, spray and cream.
For skin sensitive to cosmetic products, our mineral sun protection products are free from chemical filters and suitable for the whole family, even new-borns.
