Our human skin is naturally healthy at a mildly-acidic state, which is why all our Sebamed products are formulated at a mild acid level of pH5.5. This unique, patented formulation is very important because it complies and respects the skin’s required mildly-acidic state. When the skin is healthy at a mildly-acidic state, then the skin is able to rebuild and restore its own natural protective skin barrier to protect the skin from many common problems such as irritation, dryness, itchiness and eczema.

Generally, we recommend Baby Wash Extra Soft to be used by newborns until about 2 years old. At this age, the skin is still developing to prevent from having sensitive skin or skin problems. It is important for the newborn baby to develop a strong, functional protective skin barrier. Our human skin is naturally healthy at a mildly-acidic state, which is why all our Baby Sebamed products are formulated at a mild acid level of pH5.5. Baby Wash Extra Soft contains good active ingredients such as Vitasqualene (derived from olive oil) and allantoin flower extract which helps develop this strong protective skin barrier. When the child becomes a little older, he or she will have more daily activities. They will sweat more and contact more dirt and bacteria. Therefore at this age, we suggest to use the Baby Liquid Cleanser – which has more effective cleansing but still does not dry out the skin.
For your information, our Sebamed Anti-Stretch Mark Cream works with the Sebamed’s unique pH 5.5 formulation that is adjusted to suit the heathy pH value of human skin.

The peptides from tiger grass extract is ‘carried’ into the deeper skin layers by the olive oil extract to stimulate your body to produce its own collagen. We especially recommend pregnant women to apply our Anti-Stretch Mark Cream daily on areas prone to stretching (pelvic, belly, thighs, breasts, hips) starting from the first trimester of pregnancy.
