Fragrances are not necessarily the first choice of parents when choosing baby or children’s cosmetics. In fact, in addition to the alcohol used in the composition of most perfumes, they also have the reputation of containing substances that are particularly toxic to our health, and therefore to that of babies. But what about eaux de toilette?
A 2005 study conducted by the non-governmental organization Greenpeace showed, among other things, that perfumes may contain carcinogenic substances or petroleum derivatives. To avoid this, many people who are concerned about their health and that of our planet are now turning more and more to eaux de toilette. Because they are less concentrated in perfume essence – their fragrance on the skin lasts less time – they have the significant advantage of having fresh aromas that invigorate the skin when sprayed on. They are also lighter and therefore ideal for summer, but also for everyday use, for people who like softer scents and for babies.
Little Guest therefore offers you today its selection of the best eaux de toilette for babies, to be used without moderation on those hot July days.

« Do eaux de toilette contain alcohol? »
Some eaux de toilette do contain alcohol and it’s important to keep in mind that it remains an aggressive component for the most fragile skins, including those of infants. For this reason, it is preferable to take a close look at the composition of the eau de toilette you wish to buy, or to opt for a scented water for babies, or an eau de soin, which will have a less strong fragrance, but will be a real baby care product after the bath.
« Are eaux de toilette toxic? »
Nowadays, many eaux de toilette are respectful of our health and of our planet. They are also dermatologically tested and allergen-free. It is therefore possible to offer a pretty perfumed bottle to baby while sleeping on both ears without fear for his health!
« Which eau de toilette should I choose for my baby?
At Little Guest, we recommend eco-responsible eaux de toilette, without alcohol, and with soft and light fragrances. It is also important that, in addition to its primary function – which is to scent – the ideal eau de toilette is a real body care product. Fragrance is also important: choose the one whose scent pleases you the most.
