The power of avocado for your baby’s skin

Suggested ad (Mustela)

Babies have famously soft skin that requires special care and protection. That’s why baby-specific skincare products exist. What sets baby skincare apart from the products adults use are the inclusion of more gentle ingredients, fewer dyes, and minimal fragrances.

Why do babies need avocado in their skincare?

The outermost layer of the skin, called the skin barrier, works to shield the body from harmful bacteria and other irritants and to lock in moisture. Babies’ skin barriers are about 30% thinner than adults’, which makes their skin especially sensitive to environmental factors.

Baby skin is super rich in original cells which help to restore and maintain skin as babies grow. These cells are at maximum strength at birth, but are extremely vulnerable during the first few years of life when their skin barrier is forming. Scientists at Mustela, a leader in natural baby skincare, discovered an active, natural ingredient that strengthens and protects the skin barrier called Avocado Perseose®.

How does avocado help babies’ skin?

Mustela researchers traveled the globe to find the very best natural, yet safe and effective ingredient to protect and hydrate babies’ skin. In a rare type of avocado called the Fuerte avocado, they identified molecules whose role is to aid the fruit as it grows and matures. They extracted, purified, and concentrated the molecules from the avocado, which yielded Avocado Perseose.

Avocado Perseose supports baby skin by:

  • Aiding the development of the skin’s barrier function by speeding up the production of ceramides and lipids
  • Protecting tender baby skin cells from environmental factors
  • Maintaining hydration to keep babies’ skin moisturized

Where can I find Avocado Perseose?

Every Mustela product uses gentle and clean formulas made up of 95% naturally-derived ingredients. They go above and beyond the U.S. cosmetic safety guidelines to prohibit all controversial ingredients from their products – and all of their baby skincare contains Avocado Perseose. This means that whenever you use one of their products, you’re protecting the cellular wealth of your baby’s skin and aiding its development.
