Why use baby wash with tear-free ingredients?
There are all types of washing products parents can use for bathing their little one. You might be surprised to find that many baby products are similar to adult products. Though most shampoos for adults are fine for older children, it’s recommended that babies are bathed with a special kind of shampoo.
Since babies do not have normal secretions to protect their eyes from irritants, products for children and young ones should contain tear-free ingredients to eliminate the irritation to sensitive eyes or skin.
Tear-free ingredients are very important to any formula used for baby bathing. As a new parent, creating a bedtime routine that is tear-free for your baby is something that you should try to accomplish. Out of all of the tear-free ingredients, the most important is Sodium Lauroamphoacetate. While the chemical-sounding name may look scary, it is a naturally derived ingredient from coconut oils and is used as a counter-irritant and cleanser. Almost any shampoo that labels itself as tear free must have this substance in some capacity.
