Free of anything that sensitive skin does not like
Especially skin-friendly care for sensitive skin
HiPP Baby Gentle was developed to minimize allergy risks for particularly sensitive skin from the very beginning. That's why HiPP consistently avoids allergy-suspicious and undesirable substances such as essential oils, parabens, paraffin oil and many more.
Valuable organic almond oil nourishes and protects delicate skin naturally. Trust HiPP Baby Gentle because there's nothing in it that isn't baby gentle.
What is so special about baby skin?
Baby skin is much thinner than adult skin and at the same time the horny layer is looser structured and less resistant. The barrier effect of the horny layer against harmful substances is thus less developed and the skin reacts more sensitively to environmental influences.
The natural protective acid mantle of the skin only forms in newborns after a few weeks and regenerates much more slowly in older children than in adults. It has an important task to keep bacteria and pathogens away.
The horny layer of children's skin has a higher moisture content than that of adults. At the same time, however, sebum production in children is still greatly reduced. As a result, baby and child skin is only covered with a very thin water-fat film and can dry out easily. In addition, the protection against cold and injuries is lower.
Why baby care products at all?
After birth, the baby's skin must quickly adapt to a new environment. After many months in the amniotic fluid, it must now adapt to the air and external environmental influences.
For some time it was said that baby care could be done without care and washing products. In the meantime, however, we know that washing only with water dries out the baby's skin. However, as baby skin is very sensitive, it does not tolerate the same care products as adult skin.
For this reason, HiPP has developed our especially mild baby care HiPP Baby Gentle, which is completely free of unwanted substances and takes into account the special needs of sensitive baby skin.
