As an informed parent, I’m sure you’ve all read somewhere about parabens in skin creams and all that other chemical stuff. I’ll admit, there have been times where I’ve put creams and lotions on my child that didn’t have the best ingredients but I did it at the time because it intervened when she had an eczema flare-up. I have been trying for the longest time to find a more natural skin lotion for my daughter to use that would be compatible for her sensitive skin and still work during those eczema prone months.
I found the Baby DermaMed Baby Lotion during a recent trip to the local natural health food store. The person who helped me actually recommended it to me since I was hesitant to try it. I mean, my kid is well beyond being a ‘baby’!
The labels on the bottle inform me that it’s 90% organic (that’s good), it’s PH balanced (also good) and hypo-allergenic (again, good!), has calendula and shea butter, and from what I can read, it’s paraben free (can’t find the word in the ingredient list). It’s also not tested on animals and contains no animal ingredients.
Product review – What happened?
I opened the bottle when I get home and notice that the baby DermaMed Baby lotion is quite light and absorbs really quickly into my skin. It feels airy almost, not greasy at all and has a light scent to it (kinda of reminds me of those ‘baby’ days when her skin used to smell just like a baby’s should). I’ve tried it on my daughter now for a full month and her skin feels really soft and smooth. We put it on after each bath and it goes on her hands and face too. The baby DermaMed Baby lotion really does absorb quickly into her skin and I feel really good about her using the cream because it’s more natural than some of the other stuff that is out there for young children.
My Kid’s Review for Baby DermaMed Baby Lotion
“I like the Dermamed because it’s so soft and soo smooth and it’s healthier than any other cream because it has less oil than any other cream.”
Q: Do you like using the Dermamed lotion?
A: “because I like the texture. That’s all.”
Will I buy the baby DermaMed Baby lotion again? Yes, I will because it’s natural, organic, isn’t greasy, and does my daughter’s skin justice. However, I have to be honest and say that I still use other products when my kid gets a bad bout of eczema and I’m okay with that because that’s not what this skin cream claims to do. It’s just a really really easy skin lotion for a young kid’s body, one that, as a mommy, I don’t feel guilty putting on her body.
