Are you a first time mom, looking for the best baby lotion in Cameroon for your adorable new born baby??? if yes, then this article was specifically written for you.
In this article, I’m going to list the hot selling baby lotions in the cosmetic shops in Cameroon and tell you exactly where to get the genuine products to ensure that you don’t buy the fake products that may cause harm to your baby’s delicate skin.
When creating this list, we relied heavily on the advice of board certified dermatologists/skincare experts in Cameroon as well as honest reviews from parents to ensure that we were selecting baby lotions containing the most beneficial and non-harmful ingredients.
For those of you who don’t know, baby skin is super sensitive, and it takes gentle products to do the job right.
There’s something magical about baby skin — it’s soft, naturally glowing, silky and always smells good hence there’s very little improvement to be done on the baby’s skin.
The functions of the best selling baby lotions in Cameroon centers around 3 functions i.e. they moisturize, protect and nourishes/softens the baby’s skin to keep it healthy and glowing.
Since baby skin (especially that of black babies) are prone to dryness and skin issues like eczema and rashes, most baby lotions were specifically formulated to moisturize, protect and softens baby’s skin and prevents chafing.
Most baby lotion also have soothing properties, which helps to keep baby’s skin healthy and soft.
Since delicate baby skin is sensitive to irritants like fragrances, dyes and harsh chemicals, it’s even more important to choose a lotion that’s made with gentle ingredients.
What to look for in a baby lotion
Because your baby’s skin is naturally more delicate, you’ll want to look for baby lotions that are formulated without harsh ingredients that can be rough or irritating to your child’s sensitive skin.
Dr Marisa Garshick; a leading board-certified dermatologist in Manhattan says when searching for the best baby lotion, parents should bear in mind that SIMPLE IS BEST.
That means avoiding products with fragrances, preservatives, parabens and sulfates. Alcohol is another important ingredient to avoid, as it can be especially drying on a baby/ infant skin.
When shopping for baby lotion in Cameroon, you might come across some products that are called creams or ointments.
Which one should you go for??? Baby lotion (ointments) or baby creams???.
The skincare experts highly recommend baby lotions for the babies.
According to a skincare expert, “Lotions are the thinnest, lightest type of moisturizer because they contain the highest percentage of water, so they are absorbed quickly,” says Brendan Camp, MD, dermatologist at MDCS.
“Creams contain more oil than lotions, and as a result feel heavier but are still easy to spread on the skin, and ointments contain the most oil by concentration.” Ointments, Camp explains, are best for targeting areas of extremely dry skin.
Does your baby suffer from drier, possibly eczema-prone skin? The right lotion will provide long-lasting moisturization and help treat and prevent many skin concerns that your baby may face.
To help you find the best one for your baby’s needs, here are the best baby lotions available in the cosmetic shops in Cameroon.
