Okay! Let's make sense out of the ingredients used in Just Gentle's Baby Face and Body Lotion...so here it goes!
Imagine a magical potion made just for babies, with all the best ingredients from nature!
First, we have Aqua, which is just a fancy word for water. Then, we add Butyrospermum Parkii butter, which comes from a special tree in Africa and is super creamy and moisturizing.
Next up is Glycerin, which helps keep skin soft and smooth. And to make sure everything stays together, we use Hydrogenated Ethylhexyl Olivate and Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, which are like little helpers that make sure all the other ingredients work well together.
Of course, we also need some protection against germs, so we add Phenoxyethanol and Chlorhexidine digluconate. But don't worry, they're gentle enough for baby's delicate skin!
To make everything nice and smooth, we use Cetearyl alcohol and Glyceryl Stearate. And to make sure the potion is really nourishing, we add Potassium Olivoyl Hydrolyzed Oat Protein, Glycerin (organic), Hydrogenated Olive Oil Unsaponifiables, Lavandula Angustifolia(lavender )oil, Glyceryl Oleate, Aloe barbadensis leaf extract (organic), Citric acid, Benzyl alcohol, Potassium sorbate, Sodium benzoate, and Maltodextrin.
Despite its name, Cetearyl alcohol is not the same type of alcohol that you would find in alcoholic drinks. It is a fatty alcohol that is derived from natural sources, such as coconut or palm oil. Unlike the type of alcohol found in drinks, which can be drying to the skin, cetearyl alcohol is actually moisturizing and helps to keep the skin hydrated. It is commonly used in skincare and cosmetic products to help create a smooth texture and improve the overall feel of the product on the skin. So, while it may have "alcohol" in its name, cetearyl alcohol is actually a beneficial ingredient for the skin!
These are all fancy-sounding names for natural ingredients that come from plants and are good for baby's skin.
So there you have it, a magical potion full of natural goodness that will keep your baby's skin soft, smooth, and protected.
