10 Of The Best Baby Skincare Brands In Australia In 2024

10 Of The Best Baby Skincare Brands In Australia In 2023

There’s a reason they say, ‘soft as a baby’s bottom’. A newborn baby’s skin is the most soft and supple you’ll ever find. For that reason, any products they come into contact with should be nourishing, soft, and above all - gentle! As a result, finding the best baby skincare products can be a tall order, as it’s hard to determine which products are going to be gentle enough to use on your baby’s super soft - and sometimes sensitive - skin.

Also, which skincare products do you actually need? It can be hard to determine what is worth your money and what isn't, as you don't want to be caught at home with a new baby, and sans the products you need - right when you need them most!

What to look for in a baby skincare brand:

When it comes to choosing the best baby skincare products for your little one, there are a few things you should consider before committing to a range of products.

This is probably the most important aspect of choosing skincare products, especially for your newborn. The most important reading you can do before buying skincare products is the ingredients list! You want to make sure the skincare products you select for your baby are free from any nasty chemicals - basically, any ingredients that you don’t recognise or can’t pronounce! What you should be looking for are products without artificial colours and fragrances, but that has plenty of nourishing and calming ingredients, such as shea butter, coconut oil, chamomile, aloe vera, and jojoba oil, just to name a few.

A full product offering:

When you find a product line that you do like, you want that range to be able to cater to all your baby's needs! It’s great to find a range that features a shampoo, body wash, body lotion - and even a nappy balm if possible! That way you can be confident with what you’re putting on your baby’s skin at all times.

Multi-use products:

Products that can be used in multiple ways are favourable when it comes to babies. This is because you can be confident in the product you’re using wherever you’re using it on your baby, and you have fewer products to store and buy - which means less clutter and more money saved!

A range that grows with your baby:

This is essential for many parents, as often when you find a skincare range for your baby, you don’t want to just stop using it when they become toddlers and move on to using adult products. What you want is a range that either can be used well into toddlerhood and beyond, or that features products for the next stage, as these will more than likely feature similar ingredients as the baby range.

Spot-test disclaimer:

Before using any new products on your baby, it’s important to do a small patch test on their arm or leg to determine if the baby has any reaction to any of the ingredients within the product.

Which products do you really need?

When it comes to baby skincare products, it's always best to keep it simple. The less ingredients - the better! A good starter may contain a baby shampoo, a baby body wash, or soap (this could be combined as a baby hair and body wash), a baby moisturiser and or baby massage oil, baby nappy cream, or powder.

As your baby gets older, you may want to include a specific bath and body wash with a slight fragrance to promote sleep (such as lavender essential oil), and a hair conditioner.

Real customer reviews:

[Review of Mustela Stelatopia Cleansing Gel] "Love this stuff! So gentle and sweet smelling. I used all Mustela products on my son as a newborn and toddler as he had very sensitive skin. Now that I’m in my 32 I have developed very fragile skin, extremely dry and prone to rashes. Well back to Mustela products and I’m thrilled with this cleansing cream. I use it in the shower instead of soap or other products since even those labeled for dry skin irrated my arms and legs. This stuff is amazing and I highly recommend it. Worth every penny!" - tatia.a, 7 May 2020

[Review of Mustela Stelatopia Emollient Cream Face] "I never write reviews but this was a miracle product! This cream is a little on the expensive side but it has been worth every penny!! My 7-week old son had an eczema rash all over his face, ears and neck, it was so dry and irritated. I tried EVERYTHING, but nothing else really helped, until I found this cream. This picture shows before and after only 24 hours and 2 applications! It continued to improve and was completely gone within 3 days!! Absolutely worth it! Highly recommend! The only downside was that while it goes on very light and silky, it dries sticky and stays sticky for a very long time. I am assuming that’s what seals the moisture in and makes it work so well, so a little stickiness is worth it and it didn’t brother him. And for the price a little goes a long way and it’s a good size product." - Mommaoak, 26 April 2021
