Bioskin Junior is a range of natural skincare products for babies and kids by Salcura, designed to be used by those with dry skin and eczema. Neither of mine suffer with eczema but they do occasionally get patches of dry skin that irritate them and take a while to go, so we always use moisturising, unscented products in the bath for them.
The products contain at least 92& natural ingredients which means they’re not harsh on the skin and they’ve got to be kinder than any steroid based stuff that most people have to use when they suffer with eczema. (I have it on my hands and the cream for that is bad enough)
We were sent the Face and Body Wash and Bathtime Shampoo (which is my favourite of the two!) The face and body wash smells gorgeous! As the name suggests it’s suitable for face and body but I didn’t use it on The Boy’s face, we stuck to using it as his shower gel/soap. It didn’t leave his skin feeling squeaky, which I hate, but it also didn’t leave him as slippery as a baby eel, which is probably worse! I also loved the bottle, once I figured out how to open it! No fiddling around with screw tops, you just push down and the lid pops up. Which would be a huge help if you’re holding onto a tiny baby!
The Junior Shampoo cleanses and nourishes hair and scalp areas whilst being kind to dry, flaky and eczema-prone skin. Had this been around when both mine were teeny babies I would have used it while we were going through the cradle cap phase, GG suffered for ages with it, I remember covering her head with olive oil! It’s recommended for babies from 3 months up, and they suggest using the Shampoo as a maintenance product alongside the Daily Nourishing Spray to cleanse, soften and soothe the skin at bath time. Again, it smells delicious! Lavender is the main scent, which I always hope will help send The Boy to sleep that little bit quicker…! And, alway a winner, it doesn’t sting the eyes. Even though TB is 6 in March we still battle with hair washing, I’m the only one allowed to do it because he can’t stand water going in his eyes (even though he will happily spend the whole time under water in the swimming pool….!) We didn’t use it on GG because she has long, thick hair like me so she has to use the same products as me, but it works fab on TB’s hair.
Both products cost around £7 for 200ml and are available here.
