Eczema is common in little kids and can make them—and ultimately you—utterly miserable. That’s why finding a product that works on your babe’s sensitive spots without causing further irritation is vitally important. Baby Boo Bamboo Silky Smooth All Natural Body Lotion is a gentle moisturizer that’s formulated to help soothe tender baby skin prone to flare-ups. The bamboo extract it’s made with is a source of silica, which manufacturers say is soothing for dry and irritated skin, and after in-home trials, most of our parent testers agreed this lotion helped ease their child’s eczema. Not only is it gentle on skin, parents who are especially concerned about the ingredients in baby care products will like that this lotion is made with natural and organic ingredients and is free of parabens, DEA, sulfates and gluten.
To put this eczema-friendly lotion to the test, our lab and parent testers looked at how well it calmed eczema flare-ups, as well as ease of use and overall value. What stood out for parents was how well this lotion moisturized without irritating already sensitive skin.
All our parent testers found Baby Boo Bamboo Silky Smooth All Natural Baby Lotion an effective solution for mild eczema, but some noted they’d probably choose a different product for severe flare-ups. Editors in our lab and parent testers found that it creates an effective barrier on the skin, and editors also noticed that a little cream goes a long way. Most testers liked the consistency and texture of the lotion, and they unanimously agreed it was easy to apply to irritated skin without any tugging or pulling. Our lab reported no greasy residue, and that this lotion left skin feeling moisturized.
Packaging plays a big role in how easy it is to use a product, and our editors liked that the tube container of the Baby Boo lotion makes it easy to get the exact amount needed, plus it was easy to open and keep clean thanks to the flip-open cap that could be used with one hand. The lotion is also available in a 500-mL pump bottle, which makes dispensing extra-easy, though it is, of course, less portable.
It’s worth noting that while the majority of parent testers described the lotion’s scent as neutral, one tester found it too strong. The product contains “natural fragrances (parfum),” and editors noted that fragrance could be a trigger for those with extreme sensitivity to scent.
All our parent testers gave Baby Boo Bamboo Silky Smooth All Natural Baby Lotion very good or good ratings for ease of use, and the majority said it’s a good quality that offers good value. Testers felt confident with the ingredients list and liked how a little product went a long way, while our editors were impressed with natural barrier this lotion provided without leaving skin feeling greasy. Most testers said they would recommend this lotion to other families and felt it deserved the Today’s Parent Approved seal. As an everyday lotion that’s gentle on sensitive eczema-prone skin, it’s definitely a product we can get behind.
