We all know that the newborn baby’s skin is very fragile. Be it any branded oil used for baby’s massage, body lotion, moisturizer, diaper rash cream, bath soap, or any baby bath, even a light use of any inappropriate product can cause severe damage to his skin. Keeping this in mind, I recently purchased for my baby and I will review it today.
I hope you know that you are not supposed bath your baby until their umbilical stump falls off. During this period, you can give him a sponge bath. You must not put water on the umbilical stump. The reason is that there are chances of it being infected.
In case of infection, the child may have to face severe problems. For more information on this topic, you can read our articles –

Things that I liked in the Himalaya Baby Care Gentle Baby Bath
I often buy Himalaya baby products. However, this time, I am partially happy with the packaging and branding.
The same color combination is used for , as it was used for Himalaya Diaper Rash Cream. The bottle is white, the lid is green, and the printing is light purple.
Right below the lid, the Himalaya Baby Care logo appears.
Underneath that, you will find the Himalaya Baby Care logo.
Under the Himalaya Baby Care Logo, you will see company’s claim of manufacturing a “no tears” baby bath.
Behind the packing, you will find information about how to use it and the ingredients used in it.
Apart from this, you will also get information about the expiry date of the product.

The fragrance is very light

The price of is also lower than other available options.

Things that I did not like in Himalaya Baby Care Gentle Baby Bath
Use of Methylchloroisothiazolinone
You may be surprised to know that Methylchloroisothiazolinone & Methylisothiazolinone are used in .
It is a preservative, which is used not only in Parabens-free soaps and shampoos, but also in many domestic and industrial products.
Do you know that experts (dermatologists and medical/health experts) from several countries have shown their concerns about the use of methylchloroisothiazolinone in baby products? Some experts believe that methylcythyazolinone is the cause of cancer. For your information, many countries had already imposed a ban on the sale of any baby product having methylchloroisothiazolinone.
On the other hand, some experts have different opinions about this. To them, any baby product (like cream, body lotion) containing methylchloroisothiazolinone becomes harmful, if it remains in contact with baby’s skin for a longer duration. However, in the case of things like shampoo or baby bath (containing methylchloroisothiazolinone) are not harmful at all because they are washed immediately after use.
None of the above statement (about using a product for a longer duration or smaller duration) comes with a scientific confirmation. Hence, it is difficult for me to say whether you should use it or not. Frankly speaking, even I was not aware of this methylchloroisothiazolinone thing before buying this product. However, after researching about it, I personally gave up on . For me, the use of methylchloroisothiazolinone is the only reason for not using it.
The lid is very difficult to open (for the first time)
The second thing that I disliked is its lid. Generally, the bottle with flip-open lids comes some sort of easily distinguishable marks or areas or raised up plastic parts.
But, this is not the case with ‘s bottle. It is difficult not only to open it but for the first time, you won’t be able to understand from which side to open it. Furthermore, I think, the lid is sharp from the opening point and opening it was a little painful experience.
Packing is not transparent
Packing of is not transparent.
You cannot see how much product is left in the pack by looking at the bottle. Therefore, it is difficult to know when to order new packing.
Although I used several Himalaya Baby Care products, as far as is concerned, I am not much happy with it. The use of methylchloroisothiazolinone in this product is a matter of concern for me.
