A baby’s skin is a special organ that communicates with the outside world and is extremely sensitive. It is immature and sensitive, immature at birth, unable to resist external stimuli. Its function and response are very different from adult skin. That is why, from birth to maturity, the baby’s skin needs special products adapted to its fragile properties.
The skin structure of new-borns is similar to that of adults, consisting of three layers: epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue. What distinguishes it from adults is mainly the immaturity of the function of the baby’s skin, and the function of the skin can not be developed until the age of 8-10 years old.
is extremely sensitive to the devastation of daily exposure, such as chemicals (cleaning products not intended for babies), involuntary (rubbing of diapers and clothes), climatic (cold, sun…).
The “stratum corneum” of the baby’s epidermis is blown-blowable and undeveloped. It is thinner than adults, extremely sensitive and susceptible to chemical penetration, making it highly susceptible to irritation.
Water lipid film
Its water lipid film is very thin and not fully developed, so it needs to be carefully cared for. There is no enough sebum and fat to prevent drying and dehydration of its epidermis layer. There is also without enough sweat to moisturize the epidermis and balances pH.
