Why is it so important to protect a baby’s original skin cells?
Because these original cells help to regenerate the skin and maintain its overall balance throughout life, they have a vital role to play. The skin’s wealth of original cells peaks at birth, but it is still extremely vulnerable during the first two years of a child’s life. During this critical period, the skin barrier is still developing and the skin is extremely vulnerable to daily stress factors. That’s why it’s so important to protect and strengthen the skin to preserve its precious wealth of original cells. If you’d like to know more, please read about Mustela Bébé's new care products.

How is baby's skin different?
A baby’s skin is finer and more sensitive than other types of skin. Before it matures, the skin does not immediately provide a fully-protective barrier against external stress factors. It is dehydrated at birth and cannot maintain an optimal level of hydration in the first few months of life. Our research has also revealed that a baby’s skin contains a precious wealth of original cells that are individually unique and valuable and last a lifetime. This wealth peaks at birth, but remains extremely vulnerable for the first two years of an infant’s life. These original cells play an important role in keeping a person’s skin healthy throughout their life. They help to regenerate the skin, maintain its overall balance and protect it from daily stress factors. To protect these precious and unique cells and promote their growth, a baby’s skin needs to be strengthened and protected every day using specially formulated products.
