Want to know about our favourite skincare and toiletries brands for babies and kids in Singapore? While organic skincare and clean beauty products can be used across your family, most parents prefer using formulations that are made specifically for babies and children to cater to their soft, sensitive or eczema-prone skin.
From skincare that is safe to use on babies and older kids to moisturisers, cleansers, shampoo and more, this list of the top brands in Singapore is one you must save!
If there’s one non-toxic, skincare product you must buy for your baby and growing kids in Singapore, it is the Bébésaine Head to Toe Gentle Baby Bath Foam Wash. Made in Singapore, tear-free and fragrance-free and curated for eczema skin types, this skincare product for kids and babies, is made with the gentlest natural ingredients without any toxic, synthetic chemicals. But that's not all. Bébésaine clean beauty products are popular across Singapore and Australia and are registered with the Health Science Authority Singapore. They are in fact a 100% natural and hand-blended in Singapore.
We all know that newborn, baby skin is extremely delicate and that any chemicals contained in baby bath care products, dyes in clothing and detergents can cause newborn skin irritation. This may show up as dryness, chafing or angry rashes. Enter Amino Acids, the mildest, most appropriate cleansing ingredients that are recognized by global skin experts as the gold standard in baby skincare formulations. Amino acids are great for cleaning the skin but they simultaneously also soothe and are non-irritating for newborn, kids, eczema-prone or sensitive skin.
This is the primary reason that Bébésaine imported the highest grade of apple amino acid and cold-pressed apple seed oil from the UK and France as their key ingredients. The gentle, Head to Toe Gentle Baby Bath Foam Wash comes enriched with Witch Hazel Extract along with a light scent from USDA Organic Tea tree and Lavender that provides anti-viral and calming properties to your precious little one.
We love the convenient foam pump bottle dispenser - so you can easily hold your baby with one hand and use the cleansing wash with the other!
