Baby Powder

 

Q: When should I use Baby Powder?

Use it after your baby’s bath, after wiping your baby’s bottom, folds of the neck or arms, and on the buttocks or back. It not only protects the skin against sweat, but also helps prevent diaper rash and chafing.

Babies can sweat in both summer and winter. Did you know that a baby has almost as many sweat glands as an adult? In addition, babies are not very good at regulating their body temperature, and since they move around a lot, they are likely to sweat. If you use regular powder on the lower half of the body and solid powder on the upper half, you don’t have to worry about your baby inhaling scattered powder.

*We recommend Baby Powder for anyone from infancy to adulthood who tends to perspire a lot. Before you go out, sprinkle some on your neck and abdomen, on the backs of your knees, and other areas.

 

Q: Does the Baby Powder come with a powder puff?

Our solid medicated Baby Powder comes in a compact and our medicated Baby Powder comes in a plastic container (weakly acidic). Both come with powder puffs. Our canned Baby Powder does not come with a powder puff.

 

Q: What are the different uses of solid Baby Powder and powdered Baby Powder?

Use solid powder on the upper half of your baby’s body because your baby may inhale the powder if it disperses in the air. Apply powder lightly to the lower half of your baby’s body. Please clean your baby’s skin before applying both powders, but avoid applying it to skin that has an inflammation or rash.

 

UV ray protective goods

 

Q: What do the SPF and PA grades on UV Baby Liquid mean?

Our UV Skin Care Products have their Sun Protection Factor (SPF) rating displayed, but this indicates protection from only one type of ultraviolet rays, UV-B, and the higher the number, the better protection it offers. The PA (an abbreviation for Protection Grade of UVA) rating is the level of protection against UV-A expressed in plus signs. The higher the number of plus signs (a maximum of 3), the longer the product protects against UV-A rays.

Types of UV rays:
UV-A rays have a longer wavelength and can penetrate the inner layers of the skin, so they lead to wrinkles, sagging, and other signs of aging and skin darkening.
UV-B rays have a shorter wavelength, so unprotected exposure to them causes redness and sunburns.
UV-C rays are said not to reach the earth’s surface.

 

Skin Care

 

Q: Can adults use infant skin care products?

Yes, adults can use them, too. Our baby skin care products are intended for a baby’s delicate skin, and thus are safe for adults, too.

 

Q: How long can skin care products be used after they are opened?

Since skin care products are applied directly to your baby’s skin, use them as soon as possible after buying them (within one year). You should take special care to use up the UV Series within a few months.

 

Q: Can I apply Baby Lotion or Baby Cream to my baby’s face?

Yes, you can apply it to your baby’s face, but avoid applying it to the area around the lips or eyes.

 

Bathing Accessories

 

Q: Can I use Baby Soap to wash my baby’s face?

Until the age of about 3 months, a baby’s skin tends to be very oily, and newborns can easily develop a rash known as infant acne. Wash your baby’s face gently with a natural or artificial sponge, taking care that nothing gets into his or her eyes or mouth. After washing, supplement the moisture in your baby’s face with baby lotion. Note, however, that you shouldn’t scrub your baby’s face too hard and that you should rinse it thoroughly. Be sure to protect the baby’s skin with baby lotion after the bath.

 

Q: How long should I continue using Baby Soap?

Everyone, including babies and adults, can use it. A baby’s skin is only about 1/2 as thick as an adult’s and is easily injured, so we recommend using gentle baby soap. In addition, after the age of about 4 months and until puberty, a baby’s skin secretions decrease to a level about 1/3 that of an adult’s, which makes their skin likely to chap. We therefore recommend using Baby Soap, which moisturizes as it cleans.

 

Q: Can I use Baby Soap to wash my baby’s hair?

Baby Soap (solid or liquid) is intended for use on the skin. If you don’t have much time to bathe your baby, there’s nothing wrong with using Baby Soap to wash his or her hair, but you’ll get better results if you use Baby Shampoo, which contains conditioning components.

 

Q: My baby doesn’t have much hair. When should I start using Baby Shampoo?

During the period when your newborn is still being bathed in a bathinette and doesn’t have much hair, it’s all right to wash his or her hair with Baby Soap or Baby Bath Liquid. This is especially true if you want to bathe your baby efficiently. You don’t have to worry about which product to use. However, the dirt that accumulates on the body is different from the dirt that accumulates in the hair, so after your baby has “graduated” from the bathinette, start washing his or her hair with Baby Shampoo.

 

Q: Can I use Baby Shampoo to wash my baby’s body?

Shampoo is intended for washing hair and contains conditioning ingredients. You should use liquid or bar soap to wash your baby’s body.

 

Q: What is the difference between liquid soap and solid soap?

Liquid soap is weakly acidic, like human skin, while solid soap is weakly alkaline and refreshes as it washes. There are two types of solid soap: transparent soap has moisturizers, while bar soap refreshes as it cleans.

 

Q: What is Baby Bath Liquid?

This is a convenient body wash for use in a bathinette. It contains both cleansing and moisturizing ingredients, and all you have to do is add it to the bathwater. You don’t need to rinse. Baby Bath Liquid has just the right amount of cleaning power and leaves your baby’s skin moist.

 

Q: These products are supposed to be made without fragrances, so why do they still have a smell?

Most baby skin care products are “fragrance free.” No fragrances are used in making them, but some of the products have their own natural odors, depending on the ingredients.

 

Q: Are PIGEON skin care products slightly acidic?

PIGEON has taken care to ensure that its skin care products are weakly acidic, similar to human skin. (Examples: Baby Shampoo, Liquid and Foaming Baby Soap, Baby Lotion, Baby Cream). However, the solid Baby Soaps have bar soap as their main ingredient and bar soap is weakly alkaline. None contain dyes or fragrances, and they have been tested to ensure that they don’t cause allergic reactions, so you can use them on your baby’s delicate skin.

 

Q: The liquid in the bath thermometer seems to have disappeared.

If you drop this product, bump against it, or subject it to shock or reheat the bath water, or if the temperature rises above 60?C, the red liquid that indicates the temperature (refined kerosene) may separate, leaving a space in the middle. If you insert it in cooler water (under 60?C), the process may reverse itself.

 

Q: My bath thermometer broke and the liquid spilled into the bath water. Is any harm caused?

The liquid used in PIGEON thermometers to indicate temperature is made of a type of oil called refined kerosene, which has been dyed red for easy visibility. It is not harmful, but if it touches your or your baby’s skin, wash and rinse thoroughly with bar soap. Be sure to pick up all the glass shards.

 

Q: What is a Natural Sponge?

A natural sponge is a soft-bodied marine animal that lives at the bottom of the sea, and products known as “natural sponge” are made from the part of the body corresponding to the skeleton. PIGEON’s Natural Sponge feels soft on the skin and causes soap to foam up well, so it’s perfect for washing your baby’s delicate skin.

 

Q: What should I do if my baby accidentally swallows or eats a PIGEON skin care product?

Babies can give you quite a scare by putting things into their mouths when you’ve turned your attention away for just a second. What a problem! However, there’s no need to worry if your baby swallows a small amount of a PIGEON skin care product. Just in case, though, use the following chart as a guide. > Go to the 132-chart

 

Q: The instructions say that Liquid Baby Soap is for the entire body. Does that mean that I can use it to wash my baby’s hair?

There’s no reason that you can’t wash your baby’s hair with it, but you’ll get better results if you use Baby Shampoo, which contains conditioning ingredients.

 

Q: Can adults use Baby Soap and Baby Shampoo?

Yes, adults can use them, too. Our baby skin care products are intended for a baby’s delicate skin, and thus are safe for adults, too.

 

Q: Some Baby Soap or Baby Shampoo has gotten into my baby’s eyes. What should I do?

We use hypo-allergenic ingredients, but if some Baby Soap or Baby Shampoo has gotten into your baby’s eyes, rinse them out with clean water right away. If further problems develop, consult your doctor.

 

Q: Can I use Baby Bath Liquid on my baby’s head and face?

Baby Bath Liquid is intended for bathing a baby in a bathinette. You can use the same water for washing your baby’s face and head. As Baby Bath Liquid has relatively weak cleaning power, use soap or shampoo if your baby’s scalp is oily.

 

Q: The packaging for Foaming Baby Soap has changed. Has the soap itself changed too?

We changed the packaging of our Baby Bath Liquid in April 2004, but the contents haven’t changed, so you can mix soaps from old and new containers. Note that we made the bottle pump larger so that it is easier to press and use. To prevent you from getting the containers confused with those of Foaming Baby Shampoo or buying the wrong product, we changed the color from white to blue. We also changed the color of the pump for Foaming Baby Shampoo to green.

 

Q: According to the descriptions. Solid Baby Soap is “frame molded” and Baby Bar Soap is “machine molded.” What is the difference?

Frame molded:
The warm liquid ingredients are mixed (kneaded) together in a pot and are poured into molds to cool while they’re still warm. It takes a long time (45-60 days for Pigeon Baby Soaps) for them to cool naturally and harden, after which they are cut out and finished individually.

Machine-molded:
The soap ingredients are cooled rapidly with a blast of hot air, molded by a machine, and individually stamped. Solid Baby Soap contains many moisture-retaining components, so it cleans and moisturizes. Baby Bar Soap cleans and refreshes.

 

Q: What is the Kitpoly used in the Bath Mitten and Bath Sponge?

It is a new ingredient made from a combination of the plant-based fiber rayon and natural chitosan. It is gentler than a 100% cotton mitt or sponge, and you can use it on your baby’s delicate skin with confidence.

 

Q: What are the uses of Baby Lotion and Baby Oil?

Lotion prevents skin from drying out and provides moisture, while Baby Oil protects skin. Depending on the season and the condition of the skin, a baby’s skin tends to dry out. Apply lotion for moisture protection after your baby’s bath. In winter or other dry seasons, spread a light coating of Baby Oil on your baby’s skin. Both Baby Lotion and Baby Oil help remove dirt, and Baby Oil can also be used to clean your baby’s ears, navel, and nose.

 

Q: My baby licked a bit of Baby Cream. Will any harm be caused?

If your baby licked only a small amount, it is unlikely to cause any harm. Almost all PIGEON’s skin care products are formulated so that a baby can ingest a small amount without any harm.

 

Q: What should I do if my baby accidentally swallows or eats a PIGEON skin care product?

Babies can give you quite a scare by putting things into their mouths when you’ve turned your attention away for just a second. What a problem! However, there’s no need to worry if your baby swallows a small amount of a PIGEON skin care product. Just in case, though, see the following chart as a guide.
