Things that I liked in Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo
The packing of this shampoo is very simple. You will have this product in a white colored plastic bottle.
As you see in the image above, Chicco’s branding is in front of it. 0 m+ is written just below the branding, which means zero months.
In simpler terms, 0 m+ means the shampoo is suitable for newborn babies.
Right below this, the shampoo claims to be no-tears, hence, the shampoo does not irritate the baby’s eyes. It is absolutely safe for babies. Behind the packing, you can have information about the ingredients used, the price of the product, packing date, and expiry date of the product.
We will talk further in detail about the ingredients used.
Free From Parabens, SLS/SLES, Dyes, and Alcohol
Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo is free from all dangerous chemicals.
Should you see the packing, it clearly says, “Paraben Free.”
Similarly, at the back of the bottle, there is a clear mention; the product is completely free from SLS/SLES, Dyes, and alcohol.
This is actually a wonderful thing. Do you know that just to enhance the shelf life and to lure customers with colorful baby products, most of the baby product manufacturers use artificial colors and preservatives? These colors and preservatives are actually very harmful to the baby’s skin. However, there are no such dangerous chemicals used in Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo.
At the pack of the bottle, you will have every piece of information about the ingredients used in Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo.
COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE is a fatty acid derived from coconut oil.
DISODIUM EDTA is a chelating component, which helps in reducing the scum while washing the head.
Citric acid, which reduces the amount of pH and also reduces the itch in the skull, which later becomes the cause of hair fall.

DISODIUM LAURETH SULFOSUCCINATE is obtained from coconut and palm oil. It is safe for both skin and hair and is good for scalp’s health. Hope you know that health scalp means beautiful hair. And, most importantly, it’s completely safe.
CALENDULA OFFICINALIS FLOWER EXTRACT is extracted from Marigold Flowers.
For your information, calendula oil has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties that provide relief from the inconvenience caused by wounds, eczema, and diaper rashes.
COCODIETHANOLAMIDE is a viscous liquid, which is used as a foaming agent in things like shampoo and soap. Again, it is completely safe.
The texture of Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo is completely transparent.
No artificial color has been used to make it look colorful.
A small quantity of shampoo is enough for a good amount of lather. This is the reason behind shampoo’s low consumption.
At a later stage, we will talk about how to use it.
Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo does not cost too much. You can have a 200ml bottle for approximately 200 INR.
As mentioned earlier, a small amount gives you a good lather, hence, one bottle of 200ml lasts for one to one-and-a-half months. Therefore, it barely makes any difference in your monthly budget.

Things I Disliked in Chicco Baby Moments No Tears Shampoo
Non Transparent Packing
Non-transparent packing is the first thing that I did not like. Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo comes in such a packing, which can not be seen all over.
Because of this, it is difficult to guess how much shampoo is left and when to order a new one.
No Pump in Small Packing
If you buy small packing (100 or 200 ml) of Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo, then it is without a pump, i.e. to extract the shampoo, you have to do it by squeezing the bottle. However, in the 500ml packing comes with a pump.
To have the shampoo on your hand, you have to squeeze the bottle with the other hand.
In such a situation, if your child is very small, you will have to get someone’s help to have the shampoo because you have to hold your baby with one hand.
Sometimes You Have To Rinse Twice
As we mentioned earlier that even a little amount of the shampoo is difficult to completely rinse off the baby’s hair. It does take a while, as babies don’t have much patience when you’re bathing them. In some cases, you may have to rinse it twice.
The Presence of Phenoxyethanol
There is a presence of Phenoxyethanol in Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo. Phenoxyethanol is actually very harmful chemicals. Even though it is used in almost all beauty products as an antibacterial and perfume stabilizers.
But, according to experts, if used more than the prescribed limit and swallowed or absorbed through the skin, it can affect the brain and the central nervous system. Do you know, in countries like Europe, there is a restriction imposed and it can be used as little as 1% in any product?
On the packing, there is no mention of this chemical’s percentage used in the product. Now even if we assume that the company has used it within the prescribed limits, the presence of Phenoxyethanol is still a pullback.
Packing is Not Sealed
Packing of Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo is not sealed. There is no seal on the bottle’s lid and anyone can open it completely without any trouble.
After fully opening the lid, there is no seal or safety cover in the inside, as well. Due to this, there is a full apprehension of adulteration.
How To Use Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo
The correct way to apply Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo is given on the back of the bottle.
Many times parents make a mistake. They try to apply shampoo directly from their hand to the baby’s head. But, this is the wrong way.
To apply shampoo, first, take shampoo on your hand and moist it with some water. Then, put it on your child’s hair
Keep in mind that when you apply, you have to massage with very light hands. Do not put too much pressure on the baby’s head because your baby’s skull is very fragile and a little pressure can cause damage.
Also, excessive pressure or harsh rubbing can cause damage to his hair.
Do not forget to cut your nails before bathing or massaging your baby because this can hurt your baby.
Most importantly, do not pour water directly on your baby’s face or head. They may experience breathing trouble.
Therefore, when taking shampoo, keep these things special.

How To Shampoo
Overall, my experience with Chicco Baby Moments No-Tears Shampoo was mixed.
