I became a mom in the year 2015 and like any other new mom, I was also concerned about the products for my baby’s tender skin. In the hospital itself (where my baby was born), a nurse suggested me to use Coconut oil for my baby’s daily body massage and also to use Himalaya products for the baby skin. From that day, I started using Himalaya products. I bought a Himalaya kit, which had all sorts of essential baby products.
I was okay with the usage of Himalaya products for baby for few months, till the time, my baby started getting rashes. I was using nappies for my baby for the initial months but switched to diapers after a few months. This diaper phase started giving severe rashes on my baby’s skin. In addition to this, she started getting chapped skin and rough hair too. This made me so worried and we decided to visit our dermatologist for our concerns over her skin.
Our doctor prescribed using Sebamed products like soap, moisturizer and diaper rash cream for our daughter’s skin, mentioning about the importance of pH level for the delicate baby skin. My baby’s skin is a bit on the sensitive side like me, so without a second thought, I started using Sebamed products for her and I’m really glad to see its effectiveness. These are all a great set of products.
Sebamed Product Description:
Sebamed is a German company that manufactures medicinal skin care products. Sebamed product ranges include products for both babies as well as adults and have a pH level of 5.5.”
Sebamed Believes in pH 5.5
As per Wikipedia, “Human skin has a natural hydro-lipid barrier, known as an acid mantle, which works to retain moisture and lipids while simultaneously blocking germs, toxins, bacteria and other outside factors. The acid mantle has a pH of 5.5. Problematic skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and rosacea, have impaired barrier functions and can have a pH different than 5.5. The acid mantle serves as a natural skin barrier and protects the skin from dehydration and environmental damage.
The pH of the acid mantle is 5.5, and traditional soap, which has a pH greater than 9, can strip this protective barrier.
The pH value shows whether a liquid is acidic, neutral or a base (alkaline). The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. The neutral point is 7. Values over this point denote bases, values under this point acids. The further the value is away from 7, the stronger is the acid or base.
All Sebamed products have a pH of 5.5 to maintain the skin’s natural barrier.
Personal Experience of Using Sebamed Products for My Child
Sebamed is really an end to my search for best products for my daughter’s daily skincare.
For instance, the Sebamed baby cleansing bar(soap) is just like a milky creamy bar to be kept with extra care but really a boon for my baby’s skin.
I use Sebamed shampoo for her hair and her hair texture feels so good now.
I apply her the moisturizing lotion 2 times a day, which keeps my baby’s skin smooth and supple even during winters, leaving a mild pleasant fragrance behind. The moisturizer is rapidly absorbed without leaving any greasy residue on the skin.
And not to forget about the miraculous effects of diaper rash cream which heals any rash in just a single day or after its 2-3 applications. Now I have started applying it regularly after every diaper change. So no more diaper rashes from now on…
HAPPY BABY and HAPPY MUMMA…

What I like about Sebamed Products for Baby
- Traditional soap may help clean you, but It has a pH of between 9 to 10 which is too alkaline for sensitive skin.
- All Sebamed products are clinically tested on sensitive and problematic skin.
- The packaging is aesthetically good. And is quite self-indicative that the products are actually made for “delicate/sensitive skin“.
- The taglines like “ideal for pH 5.5 healthy skin” are quite informative, giving an assurance to a mom that she is choosing the best product for her baby.
- The products are very gentle for a baby’s skin. Sebamed provides great quality products and also fewer visits to the dermatologist.
What I didn’t like much about Sebamed Products
- Sebamed Products are comparatively costly.
- Sebamed Products are not easily available in all the shops nearby you.
Sebamed made a happy baby and a tension free mommy. I really thank the dermatologist for introducing me to such a range of good products.
The price of these products is on the higher side, but if your baby’s skin is sensitive, you must give Sebamed products a try and check if they are worth it. You can try to find out the Sebamed products online where you can easily get some discounts.
