What’s the main difference between babies skin and adult skin? Why do we have to treat it differently?
Newborn skin is delicate, tender and sensitive as the epidermis is still developing making it incredibly fragile. In fact, newborn skin is approximately 30% thinner than adult skin and takes approximately 12 months to fully develop. Babies also have a much higher surface area to weight ratio making them far more sensitive to external influences, like heat, or fabrics like wool etc. Water-handling properties in baby skin is also still developing which means they are far more prone to dehydration which can lead to redness and irritation.
