Since it is used in the nurseries in hospitals for newborn babies, I already bought a big bottle of Lactacyd Baby Wash in preparation for my baby's coming home. We consumed the entire bottle for like 2 1/2 months, after all, my baby is small and it only takes a small amount of soap to clean her.

I like it because it smells good, and it stays. My baby still smells so good even until the end of the day when she is due for another bath. And I believe it is so mild because there is no adverse reaction on my baby's skin. And I believed that it was worth every penny because it took a long time to use up. I thought it was a good buy.

But I was mistaken. Lactacyd Baby Bath is made up of two ingredients, Lactoserum and Lactic Acid. Somebody told us that these are still contained in the feminine wash, with very little variation. And it was confirmed by my doctor when she said that yeah, the feminine wash could be used as baby wash because it is just as mild. And when I checked the labels, true enough, one of the ingredients (I forgot which one) only varied in the other product by .001. Imagine that. And when I checked the prices, I think the baby wash is more expensive by a dollar.

It is all marketing strategy! I believe they discovered that these two ingredients are safe for babies and marketed it as such. They also have Toddler bubbles, but at least this one has moisturizer. But I guess I couldn't blame them, for mothers would probably not buy the feminine wash and use it on their babies. duh!

So if you want the goodness of Lactacyd for a fair price, buy the feminine wash and use it on your baby.

It pays to read the label.
