The key ingredients in our Layering Lotions are Jojoba and Brassica. Jojoba and Brassica are both plants with constituents that offer a range of benefits for skin, hair, and overall health. When combined, they present a powerhouse of advantages. These benefits include:
- Moisturizing: Jojoba oil is renowned for its moisturizing capabilities, closely mimicking the natural sebum produced by the skin. On the other hand, Brassica (like Brassica oil derived from broccoli seeds) has a unique blend of essential fatty acids that also help moisturize the skin. When combined, they can offer a comprehensive moisturization solution, ensuring that the skin remains hydrated and supple.
- Antioxidants: Both Jojoba and Brassica oils are packed with antioxidants. These compounds are instrumental in combating oxidative stress and neutralizing free radicals, which can lead to premature aging. Using them together can provide a more extensive shield against environmental aggressors.
- Non-Greasy Texture: Both Jojoba and Brassica oils have lightweight textures that are easily absorbed by the skin and hair. This means they moisturize effectively without leaving a greasy residue.
- Anti-inflammatory Properties: Jojoba has natural anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce redness and calm irritated skin. Brassica vegetables are known for their sulfur-containing compounds, which have also been studied for their anti-inflammatory benefits. Together, they can offer a soothing remedy for inflamed and sensitive skin.
- Balancing Sebum Production: Jojoba oil is known for its ability to balance oil production. Combined with Brassica oil, which has a non-comedogenic nature, they can help regulate sebum production and reduce the likelihood of clogged pores and breakouts.
- Vitamin Rich: Both oils are a good sources of essential vitamins. Jojoba contains Vitamin E, which is excellent for skin and hair health, while Brassica oils often contain Vitamin A and C, known for their skin rejuvenating properties.
The result is a hypoallergenic daily lotion that actually smells amazing, offering you a collection of worry-free lotions that you can trust; and they can enjoy.
Do Children Really Need to Use a Daily Lotion?
There are several reasons why using a daily moisturizing lotion might benefit your child – and interestingly, these benefits may be more than “skin deep.” Here are just some of the uses we’ve uncovered in discussions with dermatologists and other professionals around using a daily body lotion for kids:
- Skin Hydration: Address sensitive and dry areas with a hypoallergenic lotion that champions skin hydration. Focus on dry spots like elbows, knees, and cheeks.
- Eczema & Skin Conditions: While there is no cure for eczema (don’t let other brands fool you), our lotions use natural scents, nourishing ingredients like jojoba and brassica and feature a known-allergen-free formulation that might be the ideal solution for young ones with eczema or similar conditions.
- Massage & Bonding: Beyond skin hydration, using lotion as a part of a post-bath massage fosters bonding and relaxation.
- Protection Against Temperature Changes: Especially in the chillier months, a daily moisturizer shields against dryness from cold air and indoor heating.
- Sensory Stimulation: Our lotions don’t just hydrate but also provide a sensory delight. With warm, uplifting, and calming scents, kids experience relaxation, happiness, and even a touch of vacation.
- Building a Routine of Self-Care: Teaching kids about self-care and hygiene can begin with a simple (and fun!) lotion routine. Introducing them to the essence of pampering is a lesson in self-love.
How Often Should Children Use Body Lotion?
While the magic of lotion is undeniable, its usage should be monitored. Whether you're focusing on skin hydration or introducing a pleasant scent, the choice of when, where and how often you use Layering Lotions is yours and your child's. The pediatric dermatologist community offers diverse advice on lotion application, particularly for eczema-prone skin. While some advocate daily application, others suggest using lotions as needed. It's crucial to recognize the uniqueness of each child and allow them to learn and have ownership overt their skincare journey.
Ultimately, whether you're a daily moisturizer enthusiast or someone who reaches out for a lotion occasionally, our Layering Lotions promise a natural, playful, and enriching experience for children and caregivers.
