Himalaya Herbals Refreshing Baby Soap - Product Review

If you have been following my blogs in the past, I wrote about helping your baby beat the heat with Himalaya’s Prickly Heat Baby Powder for babies.

Living in the tropical, humid climate of Mumbai; we’re still suffering from the hot and humid climate even though more than half of June is gone. And we’re all desperately waiting for the monsoons to commence, to give some respite from this heat.

But even these pre-monsoon and monsoon months, being very humid, make us feel sticky and uncomfortable. Imagine how uncomfortable our tiny tots must be feeling, who run around all through the day with the abundance of energy they miraculously have.

Himalaya Baby Care recently sent the Refreshing Baby Soap that contains Watermelon, Khus Grass and Neem; to cool and protect my baby’s skin. Now Khus Grass is there in their other products too so I was familiar with the ingredient, and Neem is the best gift given by mother nature. But I was pleasantly surprised to see watermelon as an ingredient in the soap, who would have thought?

A little about the soap:

What it does:
Himalaya's Refreshing Baby Soap has cooling, refreshing, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, effectively helping to manage prickly heat in babies. It contains Watermelon that cools, Khus-Khus to soothe and refresh the skin while Neem’s antibacterial properties prevent skin ailments. Ideal for use during the summer, Himalaya Refreshing Baby Soap is free from artificial colors.

Key ingredients:
Watermelon keeps baby's skin cool and fresh.
Khus Grass has antiperspirant and astringent properties, which keep baby dry throughout the day.
Neem, a revered herb in Ayurveda, has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and is beneficial for treating skin infections.

I bathed my 20 month old with the soap for more than week and it smells refreshing, keeps his skin hydrated and happy! Of-course there has to be a regime with powder, lotion etc, but sometimes I feel lotion is not required in this humid season.

The soap is available in two sizes 75g and 125g at Rs.40 and Rs.60 respectively, the smaller one is a better choice when travelling. You can buy the product on http://www.himalayastore.com/babycare/bath.htm

Just an ending thought, I am on a lot of whatsapp groups created specially for mommies, and a lot of the mommies love Himalaya Baby Care products for their kids! If you’re a mommy to an infant or toddler, do comment if you want to be added to the informative groups!
