  • A baby's skin is extremely fragile. When he is born, you will notice that his skin is covered with a whitish, wax-like layer that will eventually peel away within one to three weeks. While it's there, it acts as an added protection for your baby's delicate skin. 

    As your baby grows, there will be episodes of skin dryness and peeling that may develop into atopic dermatitis, and while the exact cause is unknown, substances in detergents, soap, and shampoo are said to be the culprit. 

    Knowing this, any parent will be extra careful in choosing products that would come in direct contact with baby, like skin lotions, baby wash, and baby soap.
