I was recently asked – What is the best baby soap for fairness in India? Frankly, I was a bit taken aback by the question wondering if there are really fairness soaps for babies in the market. I did some digging to find the fairness baby soaps and this is what I found.
There are several categories of soap in the market & we usually get confused what to choose. Categories like Organic, Ayurvedic, Medicated, Anti-Bacteria, etc. Soap companies stamp such big words to attract traffic. However, it’s our responsibility to select the best for our child. Isn’t it? Baby’s skin is extremely sensitive as compared to teenagers or adults. There are many baby soaps available in the market but selecting the best is really a difficult task. So if you are thinking which baby soap would be best for fairness, stick with me till the end.
A baby’s tender skin needs care and extra supervision. We just can’t risk any product on a baby’s skin. Babies have weak immunity. They are more prone to infections & bacteria. So, parents need to be cautious about their infant’s skin.
Pediatricians often recommend not going for soaps until the infant turns 1 year old. Till that time you may use mild baby washes.
How to choose the Best Fairness Soap for Babies?
Disclaimer: A person’s colour completely depends on his/her genetics/DNA & melanin. Soap won’t make a difference in a babies color. However, soap can help cleanse the skin & display the best. Washing skin with soap removes dead cells & cleans pores. Soap won’t make your baby fair but it will just enrich his colour grade a bit accompanied by clean face.
Gentle Baby Soap:
Always go for gentle soaps that are non-toxic & free from harmful chemicals. Using a harsh soap might cause skin rashes or skin irritation. Mild soaps are best.
Avoid Extra Lather Soaps:
Never select extra lather soap because they would probably have chemical content high.
We would recommend you to use fragrance-free baby soaps. Babies usually start crying if they dislike soaps fragrance. And, fragrance soaps usually contain harsh chemicals that might affect your child’s skin.
Go for Hypo allergic soaps if your baby has hypersensitive skin or is suffering from dry skin or eczema. But consult a doctor before selecting medicated soap.
Check the Ingredients:
Always check a soap’s ingredient & search on the internet. Few ingredients might cause allergic reactions. So checking content is important. Natural ingredients soaps are best, check for things like Almond, Milk, Honey, Olive oil or other natural things.

If on off chance soap enters the baby’s eyes, clean it immediately. Because the product recommends avoiding contact with eyes.
The soap doesn’t claim to improve skin complexion. But safety should be on high priority than getting fair complexion.
These were few of the best fairness & cleansing soaps for babies. We have reviewed 6 soaps but according to me, KAMA was the best. Accepting the fact that it’s expensive but the Kama is best among rest. Chicco has been ranked last because of its caution to avoid contact with the eye. It’s all up to you which one to select, every soap is safe.
It’s never wrong to search for things that can make your baby fair. But there are no such things that can change your baby’s complexion, it’s natural. However, surgery is the only option if you are greedy of colour (Eg: Michael Jackson). But going for such options is really a nuisance. An important notice to all parents, accept your baby in the way he/she is. Don’t let their mind think this discrimination or color level. Soaps or lotions can upgrade their complexion a bit by clearing out germs & clarifying their face.
People tend to take tablets or steroids to become fair, this might seem good while starting. But for a long run, you will surely face those side effects. So buy soaps for your baby or child but keep in mind no soap can make a person completely fair. Overall, don’t let your child’s self-esteem be destroyed just by making him/her remembering their color. That’s all!
