any one else out there think johnsons is too harsh on baby skin and gives a rash?? particularly body wash?
I like the soothing naturals range in J&J which is gentle on my baby's sensitive skin. the sorbolene cream is pretty good too. I've found the old formulation (pink cream in pink bottle) and the soap to be a little harsh on my baby's skin.
Ive also found the soothing naturals range to be really good on my bubs!! (i use it also) But if your baby has really sensitive skin I recommend the Aveeno range which is soap free, i use it on my 4 yr old who comes out in a rash if i use soap on his skin :)
I like the soothing naturals too. But as far as baby products go I prefer the range by Gaia - they're really gentle.
To sooth bubs skin try good old olive oil - thats what we use to recommend to new mums at the hospital I worked at.
I use "Soul Pattinson sensitive body wash" for dry itchy skin,
ph balanced, perfume free, lanolin free, colour free,
to wash my 9 month old in,
I always use Johmsons with no probs. I love the bedtime products.
I use the soothing range for baby. I find the other products far too harsh and makes my daughters eczema flair up.
I think these products are terrible. For all the claim to be soothing and good for sensitive skin, read the ingredients. They are full of petro chemicals which are horrible for us and especially baby. Google organic or non petro-chemical ranges and baby's skin will be better off for it.
I use Tri Nature products on my babies ( I only use supermarket brands when I run out) They have a baby bath that is really gentle. All their products are natural and have no nasties. They do a sanitizer (for dummies,bottles etc) which is so gentle you can use it as a mouth gargle!!! They do a really good range of cleaning products, skin care and baby care. There cleaning products are seriously the best I have used - they are all natural but the actually WORK! And wont harm your children if they get their hands on it as its all non-toxic. There dish washing detergent can be used on the dog as shampoo and I use it as bubble bath for the kids too. I can't recommend it enough. A lot of it, mainly the cleaning products, is concentrated so it is really economical. For more information to to www.trinature.com
Glitter girl and Sarahjane- You both are so right. I am really going to take a good look at what Im putting on my bubs skin. Even the qv bath oil makes her ezcema worse. Im fed up with all the chemicals in all these products and what they are doing to make my babies skin worse.
Natural Instinct is a great natural range as well. there website is www.naturalinstinct.com.au.
there products have NO:
NO Sodium Lauryl Sulphate
NO Petroleum By-products
NO Artificial Fragrances
NO Artificial Colours
NO Harsh Detergents
NO Animal Derivatives
NO Harsh harmful chemicals
I've tried their cleanser on my skin and haven't tried their baby range as yet. you can purchase from Priceline, chemists and health food stores.
I used to use J&J products on my 2 eldest boys & had no problems, this was 7 & 12 yrs ago. My youngest son who is 2yrs old, I started using their washes on him, but I noticed he started breaking out in these terrible rashes. I immediately stopped using them & changed to the curash washes & didn't have any more pronblems.
I believe they changed their ingredients from when I used them yrs ago, as they even smelt different.
I have since changed to the Huggies Shea Bath Wash, I highly recommend it to any parent for young & old kids. It smells great & leaves the skin feeling moisturised & silky smooth.
I then team it up with the Huggies Shea Butter Moisturising Lotion, my sons skin is as smooth & silky as the day he was born.
I haven't had any problems with J&J but every bub is different.
i like to use some johnson produts but cant use the lavender oil or wash as my daughter comes out in a rash
my baby didn't like the johnson's bedtime bath or cream, he screamed like there was no tomorrow. I make his bath wash and body products or try to use gaia or aromababy, although i use cureash shampoo and some other products in their range sometimes. he seems to like these and they seem gentle.
i've been told never to use J&J products on a child, that they are the harsest around. i didn't use them on bub until he was 6-7 months, before that i only used aromababy
I dont really use Johnsons baby products..... well not the bath wash etc I do use the wipes and find them to be really good (well on my kids anyway) I have heard this before though - that they are harsh on the skin
Hello Mummybec and livvie...
I don't use johnsons except the wipes occasionally. The other products are petroleum based and don't agree with my child.
BTW I use Gaia skin naturals and also Aromababy
I've been using Johnsons Blueberry 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner on my 6 year old and now i've found her scalp is so dry and flaky. I dont usually go for heavily scented stuff for her but she picked it herself! anyone know of a good way to remove dandruff in kids hair? her hair is really long but luckily poker straight so doesnt tangle easy, but because i tie it up every day for school the flakes are really noticeable.
I recently use the soothing naturals... they were OK first time on DS, but after 3 days of using them his skin did flare up.
I cant stand Johnson's & Johnson's baby products. I think they are far to harsh and full of chemicals for baby's skin. Yeah ok they smell great but all the perfume not good for the skin.
Natural Instincts and Ego QV wash is what i use on my son not one flare up on his skin.
I don't believe any mother with sensitive skin should use Johnson's on their baby's skin..... My poor nephew also had a reaction to the pink "old formulation". He didn't get a rash but his little eyes went puffy and his skin went red (poor bubby). I agree that gaia is brilliant if in doubt!!!
I have a 3 month old baby, and when she was born in the hospital they gave me little bottles of johnsons top to toe bath but everytime i used them she got dry skin all over her body. after 2 weeks i contacted johnsons and they said that it depends on the childs skin that it can happen. My maternal health nurse doesn't like them for children under 1yrs old. i guess its trial and error what works for your bub.
johnsons are the best
I have used Glam brushes for the last few years because of their quality and affordability but they have just released brushes in Conjunction with Bec & Bridge that are leopard print and they a
I tried the Naturopathica Collagenix Beauty Dust for around a month and I really enjoyed it as far as Collagen supplements go.
I love the packaging of this product. It is leak proof and small enough to carry everywhere without worrying about it being bulky.
