The first thing we do with an infant in our arms is inhale that baby powdery newborn smell. And the second thing we do is marvel at just how ridiculously soft their skin is. But sadly, this perfect skin does not last long and throughout the years, we need to change our kids’ (and our own) skincare regiments to coincide with our changing needs. Here are some products to help keep you and your children’s skin baby soft right through to retirement!
Philip Kingsley PK Baby
Keeping our babies safe is of utmost importance to any mom but with constant recalls and breaking news reports about harmful chemicals found in our favorite products, it’s hard to know who to trust. One of those trusted companies is Philip Kingsley. PK Baby is an ultra mild shampoo and body wash for daily use. Created specifically for infants and children, its easy rinse formula contains Chamomile extract to soothe the scalp and Amaranth protein to gently moisturize both the skin and hair. PK baby is colorless, has a non-allergenic fragrance and is paraben, SLS & SLES free. Visit http://www.philipkingsley.com/pk_baby.
