Benefits of milk for baby skin

Babies have extremely delicate skin so it goes without saying that the products we use on them should be made from the most gentle and pure ingredients. Some of the best ingredients in baby skincare are derived from nature itself and are extremely beneficial for baby’s soft skin. One such ingredient is milk.

Milk has been used since ancient times as a powerful ingredient in skincare – royals would often soak themselves in milk baths for softer, smoother skin. But what exactly makes milk beneficial for baby’s skin? We’ll cover the reasons why and all of the following points in this article.

  • Benefits of milk in Skincare
  • How milk is Used in Softsens Baby Bar Soap
  • What makes milk an ideal choice for baby skincare?

The Benefits of Milk in Skincare

Milk is packed with skin-nourishing nutrients, making it an excellent choice for skincare. Let’s take a look at some of its main benefits.

  • Powerful Moisturizer: Milk has lactic acid, a gentle alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), which helps attract and retain moisture in the skin. Lactic acid also helps gently remove dead skin cells, promoting healthy skin cell renewal, which in turn leaves skin softer and smoother.
  • Soothes Skin: It has anti-inflammatory properties and can help calm irritation and reduce dryness. It can help soothe irritations caused by rashes and redness.
  • Gentle Cleanser: Milk's natural fats help cleanse the skin without being harsh. It gently washes away dead skin cells, without drying out the skin.
  • Rich in Nutrients: Milk has vitamins A, D and E and minerals that can nourish and support healthy skin development. Vitamin A promotes skin cell turnover, Vitamin D helps regulate skin cell growth, and Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant to protect against free radical damage. It has essential proteins that help smoothen fine lines, improves skin texture and helps even the skin tone.

How Milk is Used in Softsens Baby Bar Soap

With all its amazing benefits, milk is an important ingredient in many Softsens Baby products, working to hydrate, soothe and nourish your baby’s skin. One such product is the Softsens Baby Milk Bar Soap. This extra gentle baby bar soap is the perfect blend of natural cleansers like milk cream and shea butter that cleanse without drying baby’s delicate skin and deeply moisturize, leaving it oh so soft and smooth.

So, why do we use milk cream in our baby milk bar soap? Milk cream is the fatty part of milk that rises to the top when milk is left to stand or is separated mechanically. Here are some reasons why we love it:

  • Provides intense moisture: Milk offers deep, long-lasting hydration. Its high-fat content locks in moisture, for softer, more supple skin. Newborns have dry, sensitive and flaky skin, so a rich, hydrating cleanser is ideal for them.
  • Rich in vitamins and nutrients: Contains essential nutrients that support healthy skin right from day one.
  • Gentle exfoliant: Helps gently remove dead skin cells and unclog pores for fresh, smooth skin.
