Mothers’ Choice: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

A friend of mine gave me a hamper of Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser with the arrival of my newborn baby Ayden. She said it is suitable for all skin types and is ideal for newborn baby’s sensitive skin as it is pH-balanced, fragrance-free and soap-free. I was told that Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is ideal for facial and full body use for every age.

My mother who is helping me with my confinement needs and caring for Ayden during this entire month bathes Ayden using this gentle skin cleanser and finds it mild enough to cleanse Ayden’s delicate skin.

It does not irritate Ayden’s eyes and leaves his skin extra soft and moist after each bath.


This Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is also mild enough to cleanse without water and as I can’t shower for the first 7 days after delivery due to my C-Sec wound, I use it to clean my body. I apply the cleanser all over my body and using dry tissues or soft cloth, wipe away the excess leaving my skin fresh and moist.


My mom also uses it during diaper change as Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser gently remove irritating urine and bowel motions from Ayden’s skin whilst helping to prevent further irritation or nappy rash.

She also uses it to clean her hands after each diaper change to ensure hygiene when handling Ayden.


I’m so glad my friend introduces Cetaphil to me and makes sure I bring along the travel sized bottle with me each time we go out as it comes really handy when I need to change Ayden’s diaper in the car, or any other places where water is not easily available.

      I was told to keep the wound dry. Takut kena infection so I tak mandi that 7 days. Nasib baik ada this Cetaphil so at least I can lap, lap my entire body bersih sikit. You know lah, kita breastfeeding need to be clean kan?
