Pleasant fragrances lift our moods. That’s why kids tend to enjoy bath-time with scented toiletries.
But perfumed ingredients in skincare products are known to be a common skin irritant that worsens skin allergies or the condition of dry and sensitive skin. That is why parents whose kids suffer from such skin conditions will tend to avoid perfumed skincare products.
Due to their tender skin and lower immunity compared to adults, children can be more sensitive to chemicals in fragranced products. Moreover, in humid Singapore, playing outdoors under the hash sun or studying for long hours in air-conditioned rooms can also exacerbate the skin condition of dry and sensitive skin. Once a first prickle starts, the poor kid will tend to go into a scratching fit that will aggravate the skin condition. So parents will rather try to avoid such situations by steering clear of fragranced products.
Left with a dull fragrance-less option, the task to cleanse becomes a monotonous routine rather than a refreshing process.
Esemtan, a range of products from the internationally renowned Schülke brand, bashes the norm for sensitive skin products and puts the joy back into sensitive skincare. Both the Esemtan Wash Lotion and Esemtan Skin Balm emit a pleasant fragrance that originates from its specially formulated perfume oil, while being gentle enough even for children’s delicate skin.
Esemtan Wash Lotion – A universal washing experience
The Esemtan Wash Lotion is optimised with a botanical extract from the comfrey plant known as Allantoin. This natural medical ingredient is often applied to wounds to protect and stimulate the generation of skin as well as used effectively to counter irritants, thereby alleviating the discomfort caused by dry and sensitive skin.
Armed with a soapless formula, the Esemtan Wash Lotion lathers into a smooth foam that is extremely gentle on skin. Compared to traditional washes that contain harsher ingredients, it contains gentle surfactants that specifically removes dirt and oil from the skin and is suitable for daily washing and bathing.
Parents can use the wash lotion, which features a neutral pH of 5.0 and lactic acid, on children from head to toe, knowing that it can help to thoroughly cleanse, protect their skin from bacteria while retaining moisture.
Sometimes, kids’ skin may become rough, tight and flaky – whether due to allergic reactions or sensitivity to the elements. This is when the Esemtan Skin Balm comes in handy as it contains urea, a natural moisturising component of the skin that provides hydration and moisturising benefits.
Suitable for the whole body, the skin balm contains fatty alcohols, which enables the product to soak effectively into the skin. Its low viscosity also allows easy application for the body, while its refreshing fragrance captures the essence of complete skincare. Its light texture also ensure quick absorption into skin with no stickiness.
Both the Esemtan Wash Lotion and Esemtan Skin Balm are available at selected pharmacy outlets (Guardian, Unity, & Watsons). The Esemtan Wash Lotion is available in 500ml and 1 Litre bottles, at SGD19.75 and SGD35.20 respectively. Esemtan skin balm is available in 500ml at SGD20.00.
