How Do You Choose A Good Baby Moisturizer?

Are you a new mom? Are you looking for a good moisturizer for your baby? If yes, you are likely finding it difficult to choose between the many baby moisturizers in the Singaporean market. 

Choosing just any moisturizer for your newborn is by no means a good idea for several reasons. For one, it may not be of high quality. Also, it may contain ingredients that may irritate your baby’s skin. 

To narrow down the best moisturizer for your little one, you are going to need all the help you can get. 

This article contains the intricate information you need to narrow down the best baby moisturizer on the market. The article also unveils some tips that will enable you to weed out problem-causing moisturizers.  

Choosing The Best Moisturizer


The first thing you should do before choosing any moisturizer is to check its label. The label usually contains a list of the constituents of the moisturizer. 

While going through the label, you should be on the lookout for the following ingredients. 

  • Parabens 
  • Sulfates 
  • Dye 
  • Fragrance  
  • Phthalates 
  • Propylene glycol 
  • Sunscreen 

Research has shown that the above ingredients can cause allergies and irritation. 

Allergies And Eczema 

If your baby is experiencing skin allergies like eczema, you should take a close look at the lotion or moisturizer you are using. Experts have reported that some moisturizers and skincare products for babies contain ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction. So, if you notice any change soon after you start using a moisturizer, chances are, it isn’t good for your baby. 

Consult A Professional 

If, after your best efforts, you can’t find a good moisturizer for your baby, you should consult a paediatrician. These experts know the best products on the market and will be more than happy to recommend them to you. 

Signs That A Moisturizer May Not Be Suitable For Your Baby

Most of the time, many Singaporean moms try many moisturizers before narrowing down the best one for their kids.  

If you notice any of these issues when using a product, chances are, it isn’t good for your baby. 


Moisturizers are made to help combat dryness, improve the texture of the skin, and lock in moisture. If your baby’s skin dries out quickly, even when you apply moisturizer, there is a huge possibility that the moisturizer is of low quality and ineffective. 


If, after using a moisturizer, your baby starts experiencing serious skin issues like rash, eczema, and other issues, you should avoid using the moisturizer immediately. 

Final Note

Narrowing down the best moisturizer for newborns may require some trial and error. Before going shopping, it is wise that you first find out the needs of your baby. 

You can make things easier for yourself by consulting a paediatrician. And if your baby is experiencing a serious skin issue, perhaps because you used the wrong moisturizer, you should ask your paediatrician to recommend a dermatologist that can address the issue.
