Essential Non-Toxic Products to Use This Summer to Protect Your Baby’s Skin
June 14, 2017
Skin is the largest organ in our body, and its health will depend on our internal state and what we put on it. For a baby, skin is more delicate and it can get damaged easily if proper care is not provided. Sometimes this can happen due to exposure to viruses and bacteria, toxic elements in the environment, chemicals in products or extreme temperatures.
With summer around the corner, taking care of your baby’s skin –especially if you live in a high-temperature area—is something to keep in mind at all times; however, you want to make sure that you do not worsen the condition of the skin with chemical-laden products that claim to treat rashes, sunburns, or any mild skin condition. The best option is to recourse to 100% natural ingredients; and for this Morrocco Method has your back!
Thanks to our raw ingredients, our products can be used on your baby’s skin to help relieve some symptoms:
Blood of the Dragon Styling Gel for Mild Sunburns
In case your baby gets a little too much sun, you can use our Blood of the Dragon Styling Gel to give them instant relief from an uncomfortable sunburn. Our styling gel is made from whole leaf aloe vera, which can soothe irritated skin and replenish some much need moisture.
Diamond Crystal Mist for Prickly Heat
A day at the beach can go downhill quickly if your baby develops ‘prickly heat’; a heat rash that occurs when sweat ducts get obstructed, leading to itchy, red bumps. Young children are especially at risk as their skin has smaller pores than an adult, making it easier for the sweat to get trapped. Prickly heat is typically found on the face, neck, back, or bottom.
To treat prickly heat, first move your baby to a cool spot and loosen or remove their clothing. You can then spray your baby’s skin with Diamond Crystal Mist to help cool their skin and provide relief.
Zen Baby Powder for Rashes or Chafing
Hot weather can also mean an increase in the likelihood that your baby will experience diaper rash. The added heat and the friction from a diaper rubbing on your baby’s skin can lead to that uncomfortable rash or chafing. The best way to combat diaper rash is to change your baby’s diaper frequently. After changing, try to let them air dry or pat them dry before putting on a new diaper. You can use our Zen Baby Powder to keep them dry and comfortable.
Heavenly Essence or Sea Essence Shampoos for Dry or Irritated Skin
Summer heat can often lead to dry, irritated skin. Commercial cleansers can make this issue worse by stripping your baby’s sensitive skin of its natural oils. Using Morrocco Method’s line of baby shampoos can prevent that from occurring. Our Heavenly Essence Baby Shampoo and Sea Essence Baby Shampoo can both be used as a body wash and are formulated with soothing ingredients to nourish your baby’s skin. These two shampoos naturally cleanse baby’s skin without stripping it of its natural oils.
As a final tip, make sure you keep your baby hydrated and limit their exposure to the sun. We do not recommend applying any OTC sunscreen, since they usually include chemicals such as Titanium Dioxide that has been scientifically proven to be an endocrine disruptor; we advise, instead, to wear hats or cotton long sleeve t-shirts and pants to have a breathable and fresh protective layer that does not damage your skin and metabolism.
