As a mom, I always want the best for my girls, but choosing the right skincare for my girls can sometimes be difficult. What is really safe? Can they prevent or subside rashes and other skin issues? What are the ingredients we can trust? So many concerns came to my attention when curating baby and kids skincare. I also received so many DMs from #ksistersfam on when we are bringing baby and kids skincare and sorry it took so long to bring in! It was hard to find the RIGHT ONE~I sampled quite a few brands since Yeonsoo & Jooha were younger but never really found a brand that I was satisfied with. Until recently, I saw that many mommies on Momsholic (a popular KR forum for mommies to share reviews & recommendations) were recommending 2 brands - one of which is Botanical Therapy. Since Yeonsoo and Jooha are older now, our new mom, Stephanie from #teamksisters who just had a newborn tested and reviewed these baby skincare brands on which was most effective. Our criteria were the main concerns many parents have:
No harsh chemicals - Safe ingredients!
No fragrances - While added fragrances may smell nice, some might cause sensitive skin to get overly dry and irritated
Easy to bubble up and wash off baby's scalp
No tacky feeling after washing off
Suitable for Sensitive & Eczema Skin
After sampling, not only did Botanical Therapy meet all the above criteria and more importantly, they had individual products dedicated to scalp and bodycare. Why important? Baby’s scalp and body have different skin characteristics such as skin acidity (pH). Even though 2-in-1 baby washes are convenient, their cleansing power can be relatively weaker for scalp cleansing = it does not thoroughly remove dirt commonly found on the scalp. Babies who do not have clean hair can be prone to cradle cap, where the skin on the hair is flaky and scaly.
We also really like Botanical Therapy because it is a brainchild of a company that specialises in baby skincare, not adult skincare! So when we reviewed their lineup and formulas, we knew the brand has a deep understanding about baby skin and its behaviour. Plus, Botanical Therapy also brings in products such as kids conditioner as well as individual shampoo and body wash (instead of your usual 2-in-1!), which are not commonly found in other brands and are so rare!

Botanical Therapy's brand manager also added, “Even if the scalp of a newborn baby is not severe, it is good to use a dedicated shampoo from the time when the hair falls out and new hair grows. In particular, children who sweat a lot can use separating body wash and shampoo to help prevent seborrheic scalpitis.”
