We bring to you the 15 Best Baby Lotions In India 2022 - Recommended By Doctors. We wonder what’s magical about a new-born’s soft & supple skin – It’s always so smooth and smells refreshing! We can’t refrain from running our fingers down their tiny little fingers and feet!

Best Baby Wash & Soaps For Kids In India 2020

A baby’s skin loses moisture upto 5 times faster than adults which makes them vulnerable to dry skin which can cause rashes, itching, infection, flaking or irritation. Your infant has nothing touching while being a new-born. With days passing by, it battles air-borne irritants, foreign elements when a family/friend comes in contact, while playing with toys or while travelling.

Every product has unique benefits to suit your baby’s skin. You want to be confident that nothing questionable enters your baby’s skin to cause any potential harm. It’s better to choose lotions without a fragrance.

For most parents who think creams & lotions function similarly, here is a journal to choose the best alternative to hydrate your baby’s skin. To moisturize your baby’s delicate skin you can either choose –

  • A Baby Lotion – Thin consistency with >65% water content. After-bath application leaves them with a beautiful fragrance that’s sufficient for everyday use of normal skin. Lotions can be avoided for dry skins & heightened skin sensitivity.
  • A Cream – Contains 50% Oil & 50% Water. Great for normal skin conditions since they are light on application.
  • An Ointment – Contains of 80% Oil & 20% Water and hence effective for dry skin since they are greasy. If your child has skin irritation, it’s best to use an ointment. Avoid if he/she is prone to acne.

  • Sulphates –They bring a frothy effect & hence used in soaps & shampoos. Avoid products with SLS & SLES.
  • Phthalates – They are used as lubricants or stabilizers. Look for DEHP, DOP or BEHP as they can cause cancer.
  • Proplyene Glycol can cause skin irritation & is toxic to health.
  • Fragrances – Ideally best to use Baby Lotions Without Additional Fragrance. Don’t worry, your baby will still smell as sweet! :)

The best time to apply Baby lotion is right after bath since it traps the moisture & prevents drying of skin.

Hi Ayesha, Johnsons products have been sold for decades and have made a come back after they faced some issues. In my opinion, there are better brands available for similar price. You can consider Himalaya, Baby Dove or Chicco. If you do not mind products slightly more expensive SebaMed is pH compliant.
