Spring is here and it’s time to take care of our skin.

It’s not just mothers that suffer from dry skin, its babies too. A baby’s skin is much more susceptible than adults to skin conditions such as dry skin due to over sensitivity and fluctuating temperatures. This leads to reduced moisture levels which causes skin to dry out leaving your babies skin itchy, taut, flaky  and in need of a drink and some special care.

Bepanthen Moisturiser has been specifically developed for babies and infants and is so gentle it is even suitable for new-borns. It contains provitamin B5 which helps to protect baby’s delicate skin and keeps skin hydrated around the clock. Clinically proven, it gently moisturises skin and helps protect it from dry and itchy symptoms. Well… if it’s good for babies, it’s going to be good for your skin as well (especially if you have really sensitive skin).

Bepanthen Moisturiser is suitable for babies with extra sensitive skin and doesn’t contain any:
·         Alcohol
·         Colours
·         Fragrances
·         Parabens
·         Other Preservatives

Shea butter is a slightly yellowish or ivory colored natural fat extracted from the seed of the African shea tree by crushing and boiling. The English name “shea” comes from sí, the tree’s name in the Bamana languages of Mali. The French name “karité” comes from ghariti, its equivalent in the Wolof language of Senegal.

Shea butter is widely used in cosmetics as a as moisturizer creams and emulsion, and hair conditioners for dry and brittle hair. It is edible and may be used in food preparation, or sometimes in the chocolate industry as a substitute for cocoa butter.

Shea butter has been claimed to be effective treatment for the following conditions: fading scars, eczema, burns, rashes, severely dry skin, dark spots, skin discolorations, chapped lips, stretchmarks, wrinkles, and in lessening the irritation of psoriasis. It has been used as a sunblocking lotion, although the level of protection against the sun’s ultraviolet radiation is extremely variable, ranging from nothing to approximately SPF 6. It melts at body temperature and absorbs rapidly into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling.
