    I know where you are coming from but everything is a chemical

    Cetaphil does not have ingredients that are 'natural' - it is formulated specifically to be gentle but its not like Moogoo for example that uses natural or naturally derived ingredients. If that makes sense.

    Some of the ingredients aren't great eg: Methylisothiazolinone which some countries have asked cosmetic companies to remove from their products ( its a preservative) evidence suggests its neurotoxic and a known skin/ eye/ lung irritant.

    Using soaps/body washes daily isn't good for anyone's skin. Our bodies have evolved some very effective methods for protecting us from damage & infections, and a greasy coating on our skin is one of them...lots of us are just used to/prefer not to feel oily.

    I use Dermaveen for myself due to dermatitis, so use the same for my kids when we use soap etc. Most of the time we just use plain water...although my 3.5 year old does have bubble bath etc. at times.

    I'm currently using an emu oil body moisturiser on her as well, first time we tried it and it's great.
    Have you tried Sukin's baby conditioner? DD is 8 and we still use it as it works so well for her tangles. 'No tears' formula and smells sooooo good. Can be a bit hard to find though!
