In the baby and the child, due to the immaturity of the sweat and sebaceous glands, the production of sebum and sweat is not fully developed. This results in the existence of an impoverished and deficient Hydrolipidic Film (FHL), and, consequently, a compromised skin barrier function that is susceptible to contamination and external aggressions.
The baby's skin is thus unprotected and vulnerable, and it is essential to ensure gentle and delicate daily hygiene, in order to remove dirt and impurities, but at the same time respect the physiological balance of your skin and reinforce its mechanisms of natural defense.
Therefore, the products used in your baby's bath should have the following characteristics:
- Promote gentle and delicate hygiene
- Devoid of aggressive chemical detergents and surfactants
- Have an emollient and moisturizing action to strengthen the baby's skin defenses
- Have anti-irritating and calming properties
- Maintain and restore skin pH
The products in the D’AVEIA Pediatria line comply with all of the characteristics described above:
1. Clean in a gentle and delicate way
The gentle and delicate hygiene guaranteed by D'AVEIA Pediatria products is due to the presence of a very special natural ingredient - Colloidal Oats.
Colloidal oats have a porous structure (similar to a sponge) that allows to absorb and adsorb only impurities, cleaning through a physical, non-aggressive cleaning mechanism. In this way, D'AVEIA Pediatria products only remove dirt, maintaining and respecting the protective skin FHL
2. They have in their composition smooth and delicate surfactants, of natural origin
3. They have moisturizing and emollient properties
The products of the D’AVEIA Pediatria line have a marked moisturizing and emollient action, thanks to their extremely innovative composition, with Colloidal Oats, Rice and Corn, carefully selected natural ingredients.
Colloidal oats are extremely rich in proteins, polysaccharides and essential fatty acids. Corn has a high concentration of carbohydrates, and Rice is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants.
In this way, the moisturizing, emollient and antioxidant properties of the products in the D’AVEIA Pediatria line are reinforced and enhanced due to the complementarity and synergy of the composition of the 3 cereals: Colloidal Oats, Corn and Rice.
4. Have calming and anti-irritating properties
D'AVEIA Pediatria products are rich in antioxidants, with an important calming and anti-irritant action, being able to prevent and / or reduce irritation and itching (itching) - characteristic symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis.
5. Respect the skin's pH and have the ability to restore it if it is altered
The proteins present in colloidal oats have a pH identical to that of the skin. For this reason, D'AVEIA Pediatria products have the ability to maintain the skin's pH, and if there is any change in the physiological balance, they can also restore the pH to physiological values (5-5.5)
