Regular shampoo that is intended for an adult should be avoided when caring for babies. Even though it is important to keep the hair and scalp clean, harsh detergents that are often used in adult shampoos can strip the scalp and hair of natural moisture and cause irritation on the skin. Mustela Shampoos are exceptionally gentle and were developed just for babies. The mild formulas contained in Mustela Shampoos are free of agents which are unsafe for the delicate skin of babies. All of the Mustela Shampoos are sting free formulas which will not cause harm even if they get into the eyes. While many popular shampoos are drying, Mustela Shampoos leave the scalp and hair soft and hydrated so that it can be easily combed out without the worry of tangles.
