A newborn’s skin is different from older children and adults, both in skin structure and function. There are two main natural substances that help protect babies’ sensitive skin – Vernix and Ceramide – unknown to most mums, our bubba is equipped with them even before they are born and are of equal importance, giving babies a head-start to great skin.
Vernix is a layer of white creamy substance covering an unborn baby. It provides a water-proof layer to the skin in the unborn baby and helps the maturation of skin. At birth, Vernix acts as a lubricant and protects from bacteria outside the womb. It is also advisable not to clean a newborn baby’s skin completely for 3 days after birth so that the Vernix will remain on the skin.
Ceramide is also found on newborn babies’ skin at birth and this important layer acts more as a barrier to help skin remain moist and supple.
