In 1950, Paul Berthomé and a pharmacist friend established a business with one purpose in mind--to give new mothers a way to keep their babies' skin healthy and soft. The men formulated a gentle cleanser especially for the needs of infants' skin, marking the start of a collection that is now one of the biggest sellers in Europe. Their brand, Mustela, is trusted by maternity wards in hospitals throughout France and sells more than 10 million products worldwide, thanks to the proven effectiveness and extremely gentle nature of the brand's products.
Over the last 60 years, the Mustela skin care collection has expanded to include products for expectant mothers. These formulas allow women to treat the skin conditions that often accompany pregnancy without fear of harming their babies. Additionally, the toxin-free, safe maternity skin care collection includes daily skin care formulas that can be used to form complete daily regimens throughout pregnancy. Mustela products are also favorites for baby shower gifts and presents for newborns. Shop the collection to discover a better way to care for Baby's skin and yours!

Skincare during pregnancy. Pregnancy is a beautiful, exciting time when expectant moms require special skincare with nourishing, soothing ingredients. With over 50 years in the business, Mustela has designed a custom maternity line, Mustela 9 Months, to address these unique needs. The Mustela Ultimate Hydration lotion is a non-greasy formula that moisturizes, nourishes and calms dry, irritated skin. Moms can also use this lotion while breast-feeding. To relieve aching legs during pregnancy, use Instant Comfort Legs for immediate relief of tightness and discomfort. Mustela also offers high-quality products to restore skin after your baby’s birth. To prevent stretch marks all over the body, turn to the Mustela Stretch Marks Double Action treatment. For a focus on the chest area, the Specific Support Bust formula relieves breast tenderness and strengthens this delicate skin. Use these innovative products in the early stages of your pregnancy to prevent loss of elasticity and keep skin supple.
Why babies need special skincare. Like expectant moms, your baby’s skin is also sensitive, requiring special, gentle products. But, unlike an adult, a baby’s skin is unable to retain moisture on its own, making it even drier and more delicate. Particularly fragile is a newborn’s skin, which is thin and translucent. This is why it’s especially vital for parents to use high-quality products designed specifically for baby’s sensitive skin.
A skincare regimen for baby. With a team of pediatricians and dermatologists, Mustela has created a line of innovative products to care for baby’s tender skin. When it’s bath time, treat your little one to a gentle soak with Mustela’s 2-in-1 Hair and Body Wash — hypoallergenic, soap- and tear-free. Between baths to cleanse the face, hands and diaper area, apply the PhysiObebe No Rinse Cleansing Fluid. This hypoallergenic, alcohol-free, soap-free formula contains aloe vera and allantoin to hydrate the skin. To instantly soothe baby’s delicate skin, follow with Hydra Bebe, a protective lotion that contains sweet almond oil and jojoba oil — which comes in a body and facial formula. Also available in both formulas, Stelaprotect Milk treats extremely sensitive skin by helping to prevent infection and improve the skin’s barrier function. To protect your baby’s skin outdoors, use the Mustela High Protection Sun Lotion SPF 50. Remember you should only apply sunscreen to babies six months and older.

Learn More About Mustela
You may have heard of Mustela, but how much do you really know about the brand?
Safety is Mustela's top priority. All of Mustela's products are created with the help of healthcare professionals. Before going to market, each product undergoes rigorous clinical trials and testing to confirm their safety and efficacy. And the entire range is hypoallergenic and free of alcohol, parabens, phenoxyethanol, and phthalates.
Natural ingredients power the Mustela range. Avocado extract nourishes and calms fragile skin and is central to a variety of Mustela formulas including baby shampoo, nursing balm, and stretch mark lotions. Sunflower oil distillate is an emollient that is an anti-inflammatory agent. You'll find it in Mustela's cleansers and moisturizers. White lupin extract promotes the skin's firmness, elasticity, and suppleness. It is an ingredient in skin care for the abdomen, bust, and legs. Shea deeply conditions the skin thanks to its essential fatty acids and vitamins E and F. Look for it in Mustela creams that soothe stressed skin. Aloe vera is rich in amino acids, minerals, and vitamins, and helps to repair irritated skin. Mustela products that contain aloe vera include a cradle cap balm and wipes for delicate skin.
Mustela is committed to minimizing the impact that their business has on the environment. Mustela encourages their consumers to reuse or recycle product bottles. The brand's boxes originate from sustainably-managed forests. And foam formulas from the Mustela Bébé line are biodegradable.
Mustela is also actively involved in efforts that support infant development and the health professionals that care for children.

25-34Gender: FSkin Type: dryNot impressed - 10/17/2012 6:32:30 AM I read many reviews on this lotion before I purchased it. There were so many good ones and only a few bad so I spent the money to get it anyway. At the time, I was 8 weeks pregnant and the cocoa butter lotion was making me sick. I bought this in hopes that I could tolerate it more. I am now 17 weeks pregnant and my smell aversions are gone but the smell of this lotion makes me have a headache. It is HORRIBLE. Very sweet and overly floral! Most of my perfumes are floral but this is TOO MUCH. Also, it does not absorb well. It just sits on yours skin even after rubbing it in for a long time and then it leaves white marks on dark clothes. For the price, this lotion is NOT worth it! Just hope it keeps the stretch marks away!OrganicFanatic Ohio Pros: pleasant fragrance, gentle, smooth texture, helps my eczemaOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use
55+Gender: FSkin Type: dryHas helped ezcema - 9/21/2012 11:58:52 PM I use this every night on my hands and put cotton gloves on while I sleep. My hands have not had eczema since using. The smell is like baby diaper cream and I thought it would bother me because I am fragrance sensitive, but it has not been a problem. I am reordering it today. It is a little greasy but it absorbs overnight.JenMRN Nashville, TN Pros: gentleOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use

We have had no repeat visits to the doctor for eczema flares. If they happen, the cream helps!LusoLady Ferndale, Washington Pros: absorbs quickly, pleasant fragrance, gentle, smooth texture, it works!Overall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use
55+Gender: FSkin Type: sensitiveStops itching - 5/28/2012 5:55:56 PM I read other reviews of this skin cream and thought I'd give it a try on a few small patches of skin that get very itchy from clothing contact. Cortisone creams haven't even worked nor did Gold Bond lotion. Mustela works! I don't need to use much and once a day is sufficient so it's economical as well.Momof2fromSeattle Seattle, WA Pros: smooth textureOverall Rating
35-44Gender: FSkin Type: dryIT WORKS! - 5/27/2012 1:07:20 AM I used this cream with boyh of my pregnancies and ended up with NO stretch marks even though I gained 60 lbs with each pregnancy. I did start pretty thin though, and I am 5'10". My husband or I would rub it in every night into my belly, upper legs, butt and breasts. I went through about 2 tubes during each preg. Dont expect a miracle from his cream, however in combination with good nutrition, hydration and sleep, it can certainly contribute to good results. It felt very moisturizing and luxurious on my skin. I loved using it. I would highly recommend. I would also recomend Mustella products for kids.katrin0104 Pros: absorbs quickly, smooth textureOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use

Under 25Gender: FLove this for my baby cousins! - 8/4/2011 2:15:44 PM I do not have any children, but that doesn't mean I can't own this! I have 2 special little baby cousins that I adore and I bought this for when I babysit them to see if it really is as great as everyone says. It smells so good and I think it really stays on. I spray it on their clothes and spray it on my palm and then run it across their hair. I know some people said it doesn't last, but i think it does. Especially in their hair. It has a nice light, clean scent. And the bottle is really big so I think it will last for a while. GREAT product! It would make a fabulous baby gift too.
