My pediatrician recommended not using any lotion (even baby lotion) that is scented so not to irritate baby's delicate skin. I decided to cut out my regular scented hand lotion since I didn't want to transfer it from my skin to hers. The moment I started rubbing this stuff into my hands I was in love. It is so soft and leaves my skin feeling amazing. I love using it on the baby as well. She already has soft skin, but this helps her stay smooth and moisturized, has caused no skin irritation, and absorbs quickly so she doesn't become slick or sticky.
