Children's cosmetics are different from adult cosmetics. Children's cosmetics are suitable for children of a certain age. Some people think that Children's cosmetics are safer than adult cosmetics and can be used by adults for a long time, but this idea is not entirely correct.
Children's cosmetics are suitable for people under 12 years old.
According to the "Children's Cosmetics Application and Review Guidelines," Children's Cosmetics refers to cosmetics for children under 12 (including 12 years old). Children's cosmetics require special reporting and review approval before being marketed.
As we all know, children have high requirements for the safety of cosmetics, so our country implements stricter evaluation and approval standards for Children's cosmetics than ordinary cosmetics, including limiting the types of raw materials used in formulas and limiting the use of flavors, colorants, preservatives, and surfactants. Focus on evaluating the safety of cosmetic raw materials.
Other countries and regions also impose strict regulations on Children's cosmetics. For example, the European Union has restrictions on the raw materials of skincare products for infants and young children under the age of 3. The United States, Japan, and other countries and regions have made regulations on children's cosmetics labeling and microbial quality.
Are Children's Cosmetics Safer Than Adult Cosmetics?
Because the raw materials of Children's cosmetics are more refined, the preservatives, flavors, fragrances, and surfactants used are safer, so the possibility of irritation is significantly lower than that of adult cosmetics.
It should be noted that, according to the product definition, Children's cosmetics can be used for infants and young children aged 0 to 3 years, but in actual use, parents need to be extra cautious. Infants aged 0-3 have more substantial skin absorption capacity and are more fragile. If a large amount of drugs or chemicals is used, it is easy to absorb a large amount of skin and affect the body.
It is recommended that parents learn more about the skin of children aged 0-3 and do not easily use a lot of cosmetics children. After the child is 3 years old, the skin function is gradually strengthened, the protective ability is enhanced, and the absorption capacity is weaker than that of infancy. The above problems will be solved quickly.
Adults with sensitive skin can use Children's cosmetics.
Adults sometimes experience skin sensitivity, tingling, itching, and other symptoms for various reasons. Some people think that Children's cosmetics are milder and help relieve the above symptoms. There is some truth to this view.
When the skin is sensitive, the barrier function is damaged, so it is necessary to strengthen the care to promote the recovery of the skin barrier. Choose the right moisturizer, which can increase the moisture of the skin's stratum corneum, thereby restoring the skin's barrier function. The moisturizing cream should be less irritating and safe to avoid aggravating damage and skin irritation when the skin barrier is compromised. Children's cosmetics contain safer and less irritating ingredients, making them suitable for adults with sensitive skin.
Children's cosmetics may not meet the skincare needs of adults without the presence of sensitive skin. Children's cosmetics are not much different from adult cosmetics regarding moisturizing and cleaning effects. Still, Children's cosmetics are not allowed to use ingredients with effects such as acne removal, whitening, and freckle removal, which cannot meet the needs mentioned above of adults.
