How to buy children’s care products
Don’t underestimate children’s care products, it is very close to children.
There are five “essentials” to remember when choosing a child care product.
First, all external raw materials for children’s toiletries must be safe and non-toxic.
Second, because the child’s resistance is relatively weak, coupled with the immature development of sebaceous glands, products that have passed the shelf life, children are prone to some infectious skin diseases after use.
Therefore, we must pay attention to the shelf life of the product.
Third, children’s skin is thin and sensitive, and they are easily irritated by skin care products and cause allergic reactions.
Therefore, when choosing toiletries for children, we must pay attention to whether the raw materials of the product have undergone skin experiments, or cumulative irritation experiments have proven that there is no irritation and will not cause allergies.
If a product claims to be mild and non-irritating, but has not done skin irritation experiments, then this product is not trustworthy.
There are also products that contain fragrance, alcohol, and preservatives. These ingredients can easily cause skin irritation. Try to choose children’s care products that do not contain these ingredients.
Fourth, children should not use skin-care products such as whitening, repairing and anti-wrinkle.
We should adhere to the principle of preferring not to use.
Fifth, consider the different seasons and the child’s skin quality.
Zhang Jintie, an engineer of China Fragrance, Fragrance and Cosmetic Industry Association, pointed out that there are three sensory indicators for judging the quality of children’s toiletries:?
Skin care products for thin children are thinner than for adults.
For example, children’s emulsions have a high molecular weight, which is not right if they feel sticky after being coated with children’s products.
Children’s bath and shampoo are also thinner than adults.
This is due to the nature of the ingredients of children’s toiletries, and it is impossible for any manufacturer to make them very thick.
If child care products are thick, they are definitely not a good product.
Foam-less child care products are thin, but have a certain viscosity, and there is not much foam.
Because the more foam, the irritating symbol of the product.
After washing it, it feels slippery after washing it, as if it hasn’t been cleaned (actually washed).
In addition, parents should buy professional products.
It is not professional. Most of the products from children’s cosmetics manufacturers are not credible. Because these products are likely to be used by adults, never buy them.
To avoid the purchase and use of products with coloring agents, pearlescent agents, and infant and child care products should be added with as little or no flavor, because some ingredients used in formulating flavor often irritate the skin.
