Baby skin – Self


Sensitive baby skin

Characteristics of sensitive baby skin

Baby skin is 5 times thinner than adult skin. The sebaceous glands have yet to develop, the skin cells are further apart, and the protective layer of skin is not yet fully developed. That’s why your baby’s skin is so vulnerable and dries out easily.

How do you take care of sensitive baby skin?


  • Use natural products
    Many baby products are regular products, disguised in a cute baby jacket. As baby skin is still very fragile, it’s best not to use any irritating ingredients. We recommend using natural products that you could even ingest yourself.


  • Chemicals
    Baby skin is very sensitive to external substances, which includes the ingredients of care products. Chemicals easily find their way into the thin skin of babies. Especially products containing synthetic substances, artificial perfumes, parabens, and mineral oils (such as Vaseline) should be avoided. They can irritate the skin even more or – in the case of mineral oils – seal it.

Gentle skincare for your baby


The Body Essentials Set contains 3 products that gently protect, repair, and nourish the skin. Thanks to the 100% vegan and natural ingredients, the products are suitable for the most sensitive skin, even that of babies.

Fine Delight Body Wash – This gentle washing gel thoroughly cleanses the skin without drying it out. The formula contains a unique combination of rich essential oils that provide the skin with long-lasting, intense moisture.

Fine Deluxe Body Scrub – Add 2 to 3 spoons of this scrub to the bath water of your baby. It’ll deeply nourish the skin and leave it silky smooth.

Fine Delicate Body Butter – Apply a layer of body butter to the skin and allow to absorb. The cream nourishes deeply and restores the natural moisture balance.
