Lots of baby products, such as baby lotion, have plenty or allure for adults too. But are they good for them? Can their effect be the same as in regular products made for adults? Read on and find out!

Well, it’s not bad for them. And that’s for sure.

Baby lotion basically is a chemical and alcohol free lotion that can moisturize, protect and nourish your babies’ skin, and if it’s good for your baby it’s most definitely okay for adults to use too.

As a matter of fact baby lotion may in fact be the perfect product for people who have really sensitive and delicate skin, because of its mild formula that’s appropriate even for new born babies.

Some baby lotions have gentle aromas such as lavender, honey, vanilla and such.

They’re easy to absorb and leave the skin looking healthy, moisturized and smelling like a skin of a clean baby, which is a huge part of the appeal for many people who opt for baby lotions instead of the ones made for adults.


Baby lotion forms a protective layer over the skin which means it keeps sensitive skin from getting dry or irritated.

It rehydrates dry areas and is especially effective for chafed skin or eczema because it makes the skin soft and supple.

Some other advantages are that it doesn’t sting if you rub it over open wounds or cuts, nor even if you get a bit of it in your eye due to the fact that it’s extra mild – so it’s safe to use as a make-up remover and also quite effective.

One other thing is guaranteed. It’s hypoallergenic which is extremely important, especially if your skin is prone to break-outs. Oh, and talking about break outs there’s one other use for it – baby lotion makes for a great stretch mark cream!

Next to all these things that prove that baby lotion is actually really great for adult use, there’s one more thing that might tip the scales in its advantage, and that’s price!

Generally speaking most baby lotions, even those which are made by recognizable brands, are a real bargain compared to the prices of regular moisturizing lotions and creams made for adults. So, if you really think about it, it’s kind of a full package.
