Keeping your baby’s skin protected and moisturized during the winter months can be a challenge. I had a December baby and by January of that year his skin was dry, chapped and irritated. I felt so bad for him! I was also worried about what was in the many lotions and potions I was massaging into his delicate skin. Enter Skinfix, a Canadian company that specializes in clinically tested & natural skin care products for baby. We’ve been using the products for a few weeks now and I am beyond happy with the results. Read on to learn why & win the Baby Line that we’ve been using!
Our usual routine is bath, a quick towel pat down to leave some moisture on the skin, lotion all over, diaper cream (if there’s a rash) and then applying a thicker cream for those extra dry eczema prone spots like around the mouth, ankles, elbows, and behind the knees. Skinfix fits perfectly into this routine! I’m not the only one who loves this stuff, it is the winner of the Parent Tested Parent Approved seal.
Hair & Body Wash:
The Gentle Hair & Body Wash is sulphate and fragrance free, but it still creates fun bubbles when added to running water. I love the pump dispenser as it doesn’t let me over pour and waste. The product is also nut free and uses a no-tear formula. Bonus that tells me it is super gentle- there is no residue in the tub after I drain it!
The Gentle Lotion is a perfect everyday formula. I found it silky and easily absorbed into the skin. Again, this product is fragrance free and has a convenient pump dispenser.
Diaper Rash Balm:
For those unpleasant diaper rashes that babies all seem to suffer from from time to time Skinfix has a Diaper Rash Balm. This is a super rich formula that has been clinically proven to heal diaper rash in just one application. We did not have a rash flare up during the testing of this product and thus did not try it, but I am keeping it handy for the future.
Lastly is probably my favourite product in the line, the Gentle Eczema Balm. With this product a little goes a long way. The first time I squeezed some out of the tube I was left with extra that I promptly massaged into my dry knuckles- works for mom too! Despite being a thick 2% colloidal oatmeal formula I found that it easily absorbed and my son’s red patches were gone when he woke up in the morning. It does leave skin a little greasy, but this is much less of a concern than itchy red skin, plus I found it best to use just before bed. Again, you don’t have to worry about nasty ingredients as this balm is free of steroids (commonly found in eczema products), fragrances, parabens and phthalates.
Another thing that attracts me to these products is the packaging. They are all BPA-free containers with a sleek silver label. Hey, I like pretty containers sitting next to the sink!
