Tender Feet, Delicate Skin, Lovely Smile of our bundle of Joy



Babies are the most beautiful creation of God; babies bring smiles on everyone’s face, their soft and smooth skin makes everyone look for excuses to cuddle the baby, touch that super soft skin and snuggle in its folds, their gestures take you back in time when you were a kid.

We all know the delicate things require care, but when it comes to babies they require the utmost care. Their skin, hair, muscle, bones, everything needs to be nourished very carefully, so that the softness and smoothness of the skin remains intact, the bone and muscle building happens appropriately.

Given the delicate skin of the babies, any product which uses artificial colour and chemicals can cause rashes to the baby’s skin and hence lead to irritation for the babies. Also early years are very important for the growth and strengthening of muscle and bones. Massaging your baby is highly recommended, as it helps make your baby active. It also promotes bone and muscle health and develops motor skills.

Oil massage forms a traditional part of taking care of babies as the oil not only nourishes skin and soothes tired muscles it also relaxes your baby into sleep. However, the oils which are used should have natural ingredients and not artificial colour and chemicals. Regular massages with Olive oil and Almond Oil will help in proper nourishment of the babies.

Olive oil is known to contain a fatty acid called oleic acid, which is believed to make the skin more permeable. An increased permeability of the skin could cause water and oil to be absorbed into your baby’s skin thus making it soft and supple. Almond oil is also very important as it reduces the chances of indigestion and upset stomach. This is a common problem in infants that can cause a lot of pain. Use this oil to gently massage your baby’s tummy. As the skin of new born babies is very sensitive, it is quite often prone to dryness, eczema, soreness and inflammation. The risk is even greater in environments where the air is dry and dusty. Application of sweet almond oil prevents such irritations.

Dabar Baby Massage Oil is one such product which is very good. The company has taken utmost care to understand the requirements of a baby’s skin and body and created this oil. No artificial colour, chemicals means pure natural ingredients and a happy smiling baby :)
