The Best New: Baby Washes

By Amanda Orr

Soap is soap right? Well, perhaps not. There’s something about baby skin that makes you just want to try whatever you can to keep it that smooth and soft forever. And in fact, many chemical addictives in adult washes can be too harsh for baby’s skin, so it’s worth your while to investigate the right wash to give your baby’s skin a little extra TLC. Baby washes can not only keep your newborn’s showroom smell, but many now incorporate aromatherapy blends that claim to calm baby before bedtime. Here are some of our favorites.

California Baby Calming Shampoo and Body Wash
California Baby products are known for their all-natural ingredients and great scents. This two-in-one product cleans baby’s hair and skin with mild ingredients that are gentle enough for babies and toddlers and safe for a newborn. This body wash is non-drying, non-irritating and non-stripping, with the scent of French lavender. Around $12

Johnson & Johnson Soothing Naturals
The latest release from one of the oldest purveyors of baby washes promises to restore moisture to baby’s skin. It blends Vitamin E, olive leaf extract and other moisturizers. And of course, the No More Tears Formula ensures that it’s gentle on baby. Around $4
