Sebamed Baby Liquid Cleanser & Children's Shampoo Reviews

I grew up using the Johnson & Johnson's Baby Products Range. Anyway, I think Johnson & Johnson's is the only baby brand I know.

Thus, I was quite shocked when I found out that certain products of Johnson & Johnson's is 'not very safe'. It is said to contain trace amounts of one or both chemicals (1,4-dioxane and formaldehyde) that are believed to cause cancer. - http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/story/2009/03/13/ST2009031301802.html?sid=ST2009031301802

To check if the baby toiletries that you are using has one or both of these chemicals, you can read Toxic Tub: Product Test Results.

Anyway, me being the kiasu mum avoided all Johnson & Johnson's Baby Toiletries.

After doing some research, I bought toiletries from Baby Sebamed range for Shern.

The baby Sebamed range is a scientifically formulated skin care range for babies and toddlers. The range is suitable for all skin types and is particularly effective in the treatment and prevention of dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, baby acne and cradle cap. As baby's skin is nearly sterile at birth, Sebamed's pH 5.5 products help to strengthen the acid mantle in the first year and protect the skin from disease.

All Sebamed products are free from colourants (except the cleansing bar), nitro-musk compounds, parabens, formaldehyde, nitrosomes and dioxin. Studies in selected groups have documented an allergic incidence of 1 in 5 million, making this a very safe product for your baby and toddler.

Sebamed Baby Liquid Cleanser


Extra mild cleansing action. Care and protection of the baby's sensitive skin with the aid of special additives that are kind to the skin. Camomile and herbal extracts effectively soothe the skin and inhibit inflammation, sebamed Baby liquid cleanser contains special protein compounds that ensure excellent skin tolerance and counteract dryness, leaving the skin soft and supple.

Review:
I find this gentle liquid cleanser very suitable for Shern. It does not make his skin dry even when applied directly onto his skin. But usually I just add a few drops onto his bath.

Rating: 9/10

Review
I've tried Sebamed Baby Bubble Bath but I find it too sudsy, maybe because I put too much into his bath. Shern was always still full of suds when I remove him from his tub.

Therefore, I discontinued usage and now prefer to use Sebamed Baby Liquid Cleanser

Review:
I initially used Pureen's Baby Shampoo (got it free as one of his fullmoon's gifts) in mum's house while bathing Shern. But I find his scalp flaky after use, which I guess is cradle cap. But after changing to Sebamed Children's Shampoo, no more flaky scalp and his head smells great!
