As children get older and start exploring, they become like a magnet to dirt increasing the importance of effective cleansing.
At Childs Farm we have specifically developed products for babies and children meaning they are effective at cleansing whilst being mild and gentle.
All our cleansing products are pH balanced – this ensures the product does not disrupt the skin’s natural pH. Soap is not a suitable cleanser for babies & young infants because it’s pH 9.5-10 and it has been shown that it can raise the pH above 8. This raise can result in disrupting the skin’s barrier.
We only use mild & gentle naturally derived cleansing agents (surfactants). We carefully consider which surfactants we use in our cleansing products to ensure they do not strip skin. Surfactants (surface active ingredients) are molecules with both water loving and oil loving properties which mean they can trap dirt but also be easily washed away without the need for scrubbing the skin which can disrupt the skin barrier.
They contain moisturising ingredients – it has been shown that water alone can actually have a drying effect on the skin. Our cleansing products contain glycerin which aids skin moisturisation. Glycerin is a humectant which work by attracting and holding onto moisture leaving skin feeling hydrated and prevent skin from drying out.
