The specificity of baby skin
Gentle care for your baby
A unique structure
The structure of baby skin is similar to that of adults. However, the skin layers are less pronounced in babies.
Human skin consists of three layers: the hypodermis with fat cells, the dermis with sweat glands and blood vessels, and the epidermis, the actual protective layer.
The Sensitive Skin of your Baby
Your baby's skin is three to five times thinner than that of an adult. This means that it is much more susceptible to external stimuli. It dries out more quickly and pathogens and bacteria can penetrate more easily.
Baby skin therefore needs special care and attention to protect it in the best possible way.
The optimal baby skin: A care and protection mechanism in three facets
Balance - Dermatologically tested, Made in Germany
The skin of a baby is 3-5 times thinner than that of an adult. Therefore, it is particularly important to cater to the special needs of the delicate baby skin from the very beginning and to attach importance to the highest quality.
With baby care products that are dermatologically tested, you can assume tested products with excellent skin compatibility. Furthermore, products which are additionally advertised as "Made in Germany" guarantee to follow the highest, German quality standards.
Protection from irritation - the ideal pH value of 5.5
The protective acid mantle: As the first layer of the baby's skin, the protective acid mantle unfolds its true strength with a pH value of 5.5.
Baby care products with a skin-neutral value strengthen this special environment and prevent skin irritations. This slightly acidic environment is especially important for sensitive baby skin, as it neutralizes alkaline substances (e.g. urine) that constantly come into contact with the skin as a result of wearing diapers. With our loving care, we create a harmonious environment in which baby's skin can develop at its best.
Protection from harmful influences - organic edelweiss
Edelweiss has active ingredients especially suitable for the sensitive and delicate baby skin. These reduce the number of infectious germs on the skin and can thus ward off and fight infection.
In addition, thanks to its antioxidant properties, edelweiss offers protection against so-called "free radicals", which are caused by harmful external influences, such as UV radiation, environmental toxins or cigarette smoke.

What to look for in baby care?
Less is more
When it comes to baby care, the rule is "less is more", as babies require particularly gentle care. The delicate and sensitive skin of babies is still in the process of development and therefore more susceptible to irritations and allergies.
Therefore, it is advisable to rely on skin-friendly products that have been specially developed for the needs of little skin. Dermatologically tested care products offer the assurance that they are gentle and compatible, without harmful ingredients.
Neurodermatitis in babies and young children can manifest itself in various forms. Some children have a mild course with only a few symptoms, while others suffer from variable or severe courses. This non-contagious, chronic inflammatory skin disease is one of the most common skin diseases in this age group.
