Allergens in organic baby cosmetics

Allergen is a substance that triggers or promotes an allergic reaction. It is a set of inappropriate or excessive reactions of the body's immune system following contact, infection, ingestion or inhalation of an allergenic substance.

What are the dangers for Baby?

An allergy is not a trivial illness. When one is affected, it can result in very diverse pathological signs such as urticaria, contact eczema, erythema, atopic dermatitis , dermatoses, or even asthma and even, in the most serious cases. , anaphylactic shock.

From birth, baby's skin is fragile and does not have as many immune defenses as an adult. Allergic reactions are therefore common in babies. Even mild skin irritation can be enough to trigger a rash.
