Caring For Baby's Skin

Baby's skin is thinner and much more fragile than adult skin, so common sense rules when it comes to skin care. Common skin disorders in infants, including diaper rash, cradle cap, and eczema, account for approximately 10% of doctor visits. Topical or oral applications of products rich in fatty acids help repair the lipid barrier in skin until the baby's body can produce its own at about 7 months.

Borage oil is a little known secret for keeping skin healthy-regardless of age. An essential fatty acid, rich in GLA (Gamma-Linolenic Acid), it's a natural oil that not only restores moisture and smoothness to dry and damaged skin, but can also provide relief to babies who suffer from chronic skin disorders such as cradle cap and eczema.
