For Mothers, Use This to Keep Baby's Skin Moisturized

Parents want the best for their children, especially mothers who wouldn't allow their babies to feel hot or uncomfortable. According to the health site BabyCenter, some doctors agree that babies should be in air-conditioned rooms rather than hot environments.

The site also explains that babies shouldn't be placed randomly in either hot or cold rooms. There are several things to consider: babies shouldn't be placed near air conditioning, room temperature should be adjusted to be more comfortable for the baby, mothers can breastfeed their babies, and mainly, they should pay attention to the baby's skin to prevent dryness.

According to a survey conducted by pharmaceutical and medical manufacturer Johnson & Johnson involving 51 mothers, 60% of babies have dry and sensitive skin, partly due to their skin being 30% thinner than adults.

That necessitates mothers to think carefully to anticipate skin irritation in babies. One way to do this is using personal care products suitable for baby skin.

Calendula could be a solution to this issue. Calendula officinalis L. is an aromatic annual plant belonging to the Asteraceae (Compositae) family. It typically grows to about half a meter in height. The stems are straight and branched. The leaves are oblong-lanceolate, hairy on both sides, 5 to 15 cm long, with toothed margins.

The moisturizing activity of calendula is attributed to its saponin and mucilage content. These active principles have moisturizing properties (water retention and water release to the medium). Due to its moisturizing activity, calendula is ideal for formulating cosmetic products for dry, irritated, or delicate skin. It is also recommended to formulate sun-protection cosmetics (for use before and after sun exposure), after-shave balms, and bath products.

It's no wonder that Calendula Extract is highly sought after by the public, as evidenced by the increasing market potential. Verified Market Reports note that Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract Market size was valued at USD 26 Billion in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 64.43 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 30% during the forecasted period 2024 to 2030.
