Himalaya Baby Soap Review 2022

I was always skeptical to use soaps for an infant. During my childhood, my grandmother and mom used yogurt and milk for us. So, they always mentioned to keep babies away from market soaps which are full of chemicals and are not natural.

I still believe that in the initial months, your baby’s skin is delicate and doesn’t require soaps or lotions on daily basis. You don’t have to bathe your baby every day. Two times bath a week is sufficient to keep your baby clean.

Himalaya has a good range of bath soaps that are friendly to your child’s skin. When I tried Himalaya baby soap, I liked its mild fragrance and smoothness. Himalaya bath soap is soft, chemical-free and moisture level is really good which keeps your child’s skin smooth and soft.

My experience with Himalaya Baby Soap (Himalaya Baby Soap Review)

Sharing the key points which I have experienced while using the Himalaya baby soap.


  1. Himalayas baby soap effectively cleanses and conditions baby’s skin gently,
  2. Price is affordable.
  3. Mild in fragrance and stays for long time in baby’s skin.
  4. Himalaya baby soap is clinically tested, hypoallergenic and safe to use.
  5. This bar soap can be use for all skin types and tones.
  6. It’s a blend of herbal ingredients like almond oil, castor oil, milk, honey, olive oil which keeps your baby’s skin smooth.
  7. Easily available in most of the pharmacy medical shops and online stores.
  8. Creamy foams but minimal
  9. Baby Soap is free from artificial colors

Not so good

  1. Even though Himalaya claims it’s herbal and natural but keeps it away from baby’s eyes during the bath. It may irritate your child’s sensitive eyes.

Before buying any skincare product for my child, I always check the ingredients list. I never prefer to buy products in which I couldn’t recognize the ingredients.

Always buy products in which ingredients are natural and herbal and free from artificial fragrance.

Initially, I used the johnson & johnson’s product for my son as it was provided by the hospital in the “child welcome kit” in the USA. But it didn’t take much time for me to switch from johnson to Himalaya products once I checked the ingredients of johnson.

If you are thinking, why you need to move from Johnsons to Himalaya…
