Advantages Very gentle
Disadvantages Quite pricey
My youngest daughter, who is now 2 ½ has always suffered with dry skin; I won’t say it’s as severe as eczema, but her skin in definitely drier than normal. She also had dry patches on her scalp which I have attempted to treat with Dentinox with no success. Over the last couple of years I have used various different ‘sensitive’ soaps, bubble baths and creams when bathing her but her skin always seemed to remain dry, and it is sometimes a bit scratchy. And then like a thunderbolt through the sky I suddenly realised that perhaps the shampoo I was using on her was irritating her skin, it was after all left in the bath water once I had washed her hair so obviously had to potential to get onto her skin.So I avoided all the sensitive type shampoos aimed at kids and went for something more expensive designed for children with eczema and dry skin; I thought it definitely wouldn’t irritate her skin, and might even help to clear up the dry patches on her head.
Infaderm Conditioning Shampoo can be found in most large supermarkets and chemists; I have seen it in Tesco and Asda, and also Boots. I think I paid about £2.50 for a 250ml bottle, so it’s quite pricey, but I find shampoo tends to last quite a long time anyway because I only use a tiny amount and it is only used 3 maybe 4 times a week.The shampoo is recommended for children with dry skin conditions such as Eczema and contains natural chamomile. The rear of the bottle states it is ‘hypoallergenic, soap free and contains no added colourings that could irritate your baby’s scalp and skin’ – it also helps the skin to retain its natural oils - this is what made me buy it, I thought I had to give it a go, it seemed more specifically designed for my daughter’s skin rather than the usual ‘for sensitive skin’ shampoos.
I thought I would just add a quick note here about what the shampoo is like. It’s a clear thick liquid, not unlike the consistency of most standard shampoos. But the clear difference is that it doesn’t appear to have any scent whatsoever. I had not previously realised this but I have just squeezed some out of the bottle and given a good whiff and I cannot smell anything! I think this is pretty good because it shows the manufacturers really are concentrating on making it kind for sensitive skin, and not just making it look and smell nice.
It often goes into her eyes but she doesn’t seem to complain much about this so it may have the ‘no tears’ formula integrated into the shampoo, but it does not state this anywhere on the bottle.
