Best Soap for Babies: What You Need to Know

Congratulations on the new baby!Tips to know what to look for when choosing the best soap for babies

While this is a time of celebration, having a newborn means a lot of decisions need to be made as you prepare for your precious bundle of joy. One of these is choosing the best soap for babies, the same one that you will use for your little one.

So what do you look for when checking the best soap for babies?

First, to find the perfect bath time buddy for baby:

  • Check the list of ingredients to determine whether there are components that may potentially trigger negative reaction on your baby’s skin. Remember, while some ingredients may not be harmful to adults, a baby’s smaller and less developed body including the skin will magnify that effect.
  • Make sure you choose a mild and moisturizing formula that will not irritate the baby’s skin. You want a cleanser that will lock in moisture to keep your little one’s skin, well… baby soft!
  • Try to go for fragrance-free options as the chemicals used in the scented versions may cause irritation and dryness. Since there’s nothing like the sweetness of a newborn baby’s skin, why mask it with artificial scents and fragrances?

Next, let’s settle the question of bar soap vs. body wash.

What’s the difference of a bar soap and a body wash?

Bar Soap

  • The benefits

Generally, bar soaps work better on dirt and sweat. This is because most bar soaps contain sodium lauryl sulfate, a cleansing agent that works well with dirt and oil.

  • The disadvantages

Bar soaps affect the skin’s natural pH level, as most soaps are typically more alkaline than the skin. A more alkaline environment can make the skin more prone to bacteria and make it drier and less likely to absorb water.

Body Wash

  • The benefits

Body washes are gentler on the skin than bar soaps because they contain large amounts of petrolatum, an ingredient that moisturizes and lubricates the skin. It’s also been suggested by the American Academy of Dermatology that body wash helps trap natural oils in the skin which helps maintain the skin’s elasticity.

  • The disadvantages

Body washes don’t lather up as well as bar soaps. Why is this important? The lather may be an indication of the cleansing ability of the soap. The bubbles draw the dirt and grime off the skin to be eventually washed off when you rinse. Thus, the more bubbles you can make, the cleaner the skin is after rinsing.

Our Verdict

Though bar soaps generally do a better job at removing dirt, grime and oil, babies do not get dirty enough (yet) to require that level of cleansing power. Body washes provide sufficient cleansing ability and would be able to provide the moisturization and protection crucial at this stage.

TriSoPure is one such baby wash. Its mild and gentle formulation provides the cleansing capacity suitable for a baby’s sensitive skin while ensuring that your baby’s skin is pH balanced, moisturized and protected. Try it and see for yourself!
