How to choose the right soap for baby

The importance of health care, as a rule, we learn from an early age, for example, listening to poems about Moidodyr. Keeping the body clean – is one of the most important conditions for health maintaining.
At the same time, taking care of adults’ skin differs considerably from the taking care of infants’skin  and children’ skin, because the young skin structure differs from the structure of the adults’ skin.
The main features of children's skin:
The children have the thin and vulnerable stratum corneum of the skin. To make the damage to such a skin it is enough even the mechanical and chemical effects. The thickness of the epidermis of young children is 2-3 times thinner than those of adults.
The function of the sebaceous and sweat glands is just beginning to develop. Sebum and perspiration of the baby on the skin surface creates a neutral environment.
Newborns’ skin is actively involved in gas exchange. Skin breathing of newborns is 8 times more intense than in adults. Skin impurities impede the process of skin respiration; this immediately affects the general state of health.
Children's skin isn’t protected from exposure of sunlight, because the skin cells have the reduced possibility to produce the pigment melanin.
Therefore, only the proper care of the child helps the skin to perform its function.
Types of baby soap

The solid soap has a pH level from 10 to 7. In result of the mixture of soap and water is formed the alkaline solution, which is damaging for infants’ skin. In order to restore the moisture balance of the skin, the wet is drawn from the deep layers of the skin causing its extra drying. Traditional solid soap is not recommended for children under one year more than once a week. It is better to use it exclusively for washing hands after a walk and before eating.
The cream soap - is a common bar soaps, which have emollients. Vegetable oils, glycerin, lanolin make part of any baby soap, but in the cream soap the percentage of these and other emollients is significantly higher.
The liquid soap is very gentle for skin, since the concentration of substances in it is less, the acid-alkaline balance is close to that of the skin and it is best washed off. Usually a liquid soap has a dispenser which protects the product from contact with the external environment and dirt. In a liquid medium the useful components (essential oils, vegetable extracts) are dissolved better.
