Characteristics of baby's skin
- Skin thickness is between 1/2 and 1/3 compared to the skin thickness in adults
- Although the surface area of the skin is small, the number of sweat glands is the same as that of adults
- The secretion of sebum is 1/3 compared to adults ※ from 2-3 months after birth
In addition, there are characteristics peculiar to the growth process, such as a low amount of natural moisturizing factors in the stratum corneum, low amount of intercellular lipids and fast turnover. The common impression is that the skin of an infant is plump but it is actually very delicate and susceptible to damage. Proper skin care not only protects the delicate baby skin, but also leads to healthy skin.
