While both my boys love to occasionally use my fruity body washes and hand-made soaps, the one body wash that has maintained a constant presence in my bathroom cabinet since more than eight years is the Chicco Baby Moments Gentle Body Wash and Shampoo, ever since the birth of my elder son. He still bathes with this as does my younger son who’s four. And sometimes, so do I…..
Chicco Gentle Body Wash and Shampoo
“It’s formula gently cleanses baby’s delicate skin, since the first baths with soothing and softening oat properties. The iso-lachrymal neutral pH does not irritate the eyes and the absence of Parabens, SLS and SLES guarantees extra care for the delicate skins of newborns. Dyes and alcohol-free. Clinically tested on sensitive skins. Hypoallergenic.”
This is a body wash and shampoo that lives up to all it’s claims and can be used on the baby right from it’s first bath. It is super gentle on the skin and scalp, doesn’t irritate the baby’s/toddler’s eyes when you shampoo their hair with it. Obviously, it doesn’t dry the skin either because it is so mild. That’s the reason I use this body wash on the days when I need to take a super quick shower with no time to apply a body lotion or cream. (Which is almost everyday these days since the maid is on holiday and that reminded me that I need to review this).
The thing I love the most about this Body Wash and Shampoo is it’s fragrance. It has a very mild “baby” fragrance. The kind of fragrance you can smell on your infants when you nuzzle them and hold them close to you. Perhaps that’s the reason why I keep buying this, coz the fragrance reminds me of the days when the boys were little babies….
As far as I know, the Chicco Gentle Body Wash and Shampoo comes in one size only and that’s a 500ml bottle with pump. At least, that’s the size that I keep buying. The pump makes it unsuitable for travel so I used to decant some in an empty travel sized body wash bottle.
This wonderful body wash and shampoo isn’t expensive either. It is priced at Rs. 449 for 500 ml. Eight years ago, availability was an issue since this was available only at certain stores stocking imported goods. Now however, most chemists stock Chicco so it’s easier to get.
To sum it up, this is a fabulous, gentle body wash with a really mild “baby” fragrance. I highly recommend it for kids, right from newborn infants to even tweens. And if you have really dry or sensitive skin or skin that’s prone to contact dermatitis, get the Chicco Gentle Body Wash and Shampoo for sure.
