The right care for delicate baby skin.

Babies' skin is about five times thinner than that of adults and very prone to dryness. Therefore, from the day of birth, your baby's skin care is an important part of everyday mother-child life.


When you change your baby's diaper, bathe or dress your child, you turn to them lovingly - this promotes bonding and gives security and closeness. In addition to a large helping of love, your baby's skin also needs the right care. Because: it is very delicate and sensitive. We therefore recommend care products without preservatives such as our certified natural cosmetics. It is particularly kind to the skin and nourishes with valuable natural ingredients.

Care of the face, eyes and ears


Regularly apply a thin layer of moisturizing cream to your baby's face such as Töpfer's Care Cream. Pay particular attention to the skin around the mouth, as this is particularly stressed by saliva residues. In winter, a cream that contains as much fat as possible is recommended.
You can gently remove dried secretions from your baby's eyes with moist sterile gauze compresses (not cotton pads). To do this, carefully rub out the closed eye from the outside to the bridge of the nose. This will prevent the germs from spreading over the entire eye. Use a separate compress for each eye.
You can easily loosen encrustations in the ear with a little warm water and baby oil. Cotton swabs are taboo in the inner ear! They can damage the delicate ear drum or cause an ear infection.

Our tip:


Newborn acne (acne neonatorum) is completely normal and nothing to worry about. You should initially refrain from using care products on the affected areas. These can also clog the pores.

Cut nails correctly


From the sixth week of life you can safely cut your baby's nails. Ideally with extra rounded baby nail scissors. This usually works great right after bathing and when your baby is asleep. Toenails should always be cut straight so they don't grow in.
