Guide to Newborn Skin Conditions
Did you know newborn’s skin is 30% thinner than adults? Get peace of mind with JOHNSON’S® – your little love deserves the best care.
There’s nothing quite like caressing your baby’s soft, dreamy skin – it’s an incredible experience. Newborn skin is very sensitive, however, and functions as a shield by protecting baby from irritants, germs and bacteria, while also regulating their internal temperature and allow them to explore their world through touch. As you can tell, baby skin is extremely delicate and requires special care and attention, especially in baby’s first few years of life.
From bathing baby to applying a gentle moisturizer, it’s vital to nurture their skin, but also to nurture your special bond with them through touch.
Your newborn needs a gentle touch. Our COTTONTOUCH™ baby products are blended with real cotton and specifically formulated to provide gentle care on sensitive baby skin.
Just like your newborn beginning to see the world with fresh eyes, their skin is also developing and requires extra care. Newborns are often susceptible to skin conditions and must adapt from their water-like origins in the womb to dry environments after birth. While baby’s skin can absorb moisture much faster than an adult’s skin, baby can lose their moisture much quicker – leaving their skin prone to dryness. As a result, baby’s delicate skin needs to be handled with extreme care.
