Healthy skin and hair products are important for kids as much as for babies. Most babies products can be used for older kids as well, as there is no really many kids products.
Instead of picking up labels with trendy claims, such as “hypoallergenic,” “gentle,” or “organic,” try learning about ingredients that can cause skin irritation if your baby shows signs of a rash or reaction. We compiled a list of great products we like and are easily available in most stores.
