A baby’s skin, especially in the first year of life, has different histological and physiological features than that of adult skin:
✓ the horney layer is thinner
✓ in the basal layer of the skin, cells that produce melanin are in lower quantity with consequent lower natural protection from the action of UV rays;
✓ the deeper skin layer is more sensitive, with smaller, more immature collagen and elastic fibers;
✓ the sebaceous glands are poorly active (the skin is odorless) and will remain like that until puberty;
✓ baby skin is richer in water (about 75%) and hence more permeable;
✓ The pH is slightly less acidic than that of adult’s.
It’s essential to choose the most suitable cosmetic products, studied and geared to the particular characteristics of children’s skin and hair that are completely different from the adults ones, and that:
✓ guarantee absolute harmlessness
✓ cleanse effectively yet gently
