My pediatrician advised that no product would resolve my baby’s flaking skin. “This top layer of the epidermis will replace itself in the first few days,” he said, and “no amount of lotion or oil will remove the flakiness.” For the most part, he was right. I tried a few different lotions and oils, and after an hour or so, the flakiness returned.
The brand philosophy of the Baby SebaMed line, however, is to replicate how the skin naturally heals itself. And with their lotion, my daughter’s skin looked and felt quite healthy, even as it underwent the process my doctor described. Moreover, it never felt or appeared over moisturized, and the effects far outlasted any of the other products I tried.
But more immediate than how the products seemed to help in healing was their smell and feel. The aroma is unique and sweet, but still subtle. And while I couldn’t have imagined my baby’s skin feeling any softer, with the Baby SebaMed bubble bath, it did. Just a few drops of it is enough, and even fewer of the lotion which is lite but still dense.
My only complaint with the SebaMed line is that my newborn is so totally soothed after her baths that I barely have enough time to dab on the lotion before she’s fussing from wanting to sleep. Any product that helps me accomplish that will certainly stay in my pantry, far longer than ‘the first day’, as their slogan suggests.
