When it comes to baby shampoos and baby products, every mother or parent would wish to choose the best for their babies. Baby has very delicate and sensitive skin this is why the bathing product for babies should be safe, hyper-allergic and free of the chemicals. When I became a mother I wanted to give my baby the best which I can. A lot of young mothers like me who live in a nuclear family and does not have that constant support from the mothers, mother-in-law and other elders, would definitely think about the safety and providing the best products for the baby. My mother in law was there with me but it was not a permanent thing. Due to certain circumstances she could not be there every day. Which is why, I have to learn a lot myself and absorbing the knowledge that she has.
Here in this post, I will be sharing these best baby shampoos available in India. Most of these products that I have listed are easily available in shops or online portals. By the way, I have also shared this list of the best baby massage oils in India, which will help you choose the best for your baby. A massage oil helps to stimulate growth and increasing the bone density.
What to look for while choosing a Baby Shampoo or Cleanser
Clinically tested: First of all, you need to make sure that the formula is dermatologically tested.
Hypoallergenic: Also, the formula should be gentle and hyper allergic in nature. Such products are mild for baby’s soft skin and safe enough for everyday use. The formula for baby shampoo should be non-allergic.
Chemical Free: It should be free of the harmful SLS, phthalates and paraben.
Natural Ingredients: Rather, if it contains some natural ingredients like oats, aloe vera etc, then they are considered good for the baby’s skin.
Tear Free Formula: The shampoo should not cause tears in babies.
pH balanced Formula: The formula should be pH balanced which does not dry out or irritate the skin.
