When it comes to your precious baby, you’ll always want what’s best for them – and that includes taking care of their sweet, scrumptious baby skin. Because baby skin is still maturing during those first couple of years, it’s extra important to make sure that any baby bath or skincare products you use are gentle and help protect their developing skin.
Luckily for you, the Dermaveen Baby Calmexa range of products has your whole baby bathing and skincare routine covered from head to toe! These products offer specifically formulated, clinically tested protection for delicate baby skin – and they contain highly naturally derived ingredients to gently cleanse and moisturise your baby’s skin. Importantly, they don’t contain harsh soaps or fragrances that can irritate or damage baby skin. Even better, these products are hypoallergenic, vegan friendly, and Australian made – which can help you feel as good about your choices as your baby’s skin will!
Keep reading to find out more about the key natural ingredients in Dermaveen Baby Calmexa skin care products that help to soothe, protect, and restore dry, sensitive, and eczema-prone baby skin.
Colloidal oatmeal to soothe sensitive, eczema-prone baby skin
Oatmeal may be better known as a yummy breakfast food, but did you know oatmeal has been long used to help keep skin healthy? Colloidal oatmeal describes the powder that results from grinding up whole oat grains – creating tiny particles that help form a protective barrier on the skin.
Colloidal oatmeal contains lots of skin-friendly plant chemicals including vitamin E, phenolic compounds, and beta-glucans. All these substances give colloidal oatmeal some pretty great anti-inflammatory, anti-itch, and antioxidant properties for helping soothe baby skin, as well as restoring the skin’s protective barrier.
It’s these soothing properties that make colloidal oatmeal an effective ingredient for managing dry, sensitive, and eczema-prone skin – which is why all the Dermaveen Baby Calmexa products are formulated with 100% natural colloidal oatmeal.
Ceramides to restore sensitive, eczema-prone baby skin
You may have heard about using a ceramide moisturiser for your baby, but maybe don’t quite understand the reason behind the recommendation. We can help with that! Ceramides are a type of lipid (think fatty, waxy, or oily substances) that are found naturally in the outermost layer of skin, along with cholesterol and fatty acids. These three lipids – and the ratio they occur in – are actually quite important for healthy skin because they help hold the skin cells together and form a protective barrier. Ceramides in particular play an essential role in regulating water loss and healthy skin barrier function.
When it comes to caring for your baby’s skin, using gentle cleansers and moisturisers that contain ceramides – as all the Dermaveen Baby Calmexa products do – can help restore and maintain the protective skin barrier. It’s also been shown that regular use of ceramide-containing baby skincare products can help improve inflammation and itchiness associated with dry, eczema-prone skin.
Kakadu plum to protect sensitive, eczema-prone baby skin
We all know that vitamin C is important for keeping our insides healthy, but it’s also important for our skin. Vitamin C plays a key role in forming the collagen that is responsible for skin structure. It is also a potent antioxidant that protects against damage caused by free radicals, which are tiny molecules in your body that are formed by various things like pollution and sunlight.
The Kakadu plum is a plant that is native to tropical areas spread across northern Australia. It has a long history of use by Indigenous Australians because of its nutritional and medicinal properties. Kakadu plums contain the highest recorded levels of vitamin C of any fruit in the world, plus they contain high levels of polyphenols – substances with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.
To take advantage of these Kakadu plum benefits for skin, Dermaveen Baby Calmexa products contain Kakadu plum extract – with beneficial levels of vitamin C and other antioxidants to help protect sensitive, eczema-prone baby skin.

Dermaveen Baby Calmexa ingredients FAQs
The Dermaveen Baby Calmexa Moisturising Lotion and Extra Rich Moisturising Cream both contain over 99% naturally derived ingredients, while the Soap-Free Wash & Shampoo contains over 87% naturally derived ingredients.
The Dermaveen Baby Calmexa Range of specially formulated and clinically tested baby skincare products contain the naturally derived ingredients colloidal oatmeal, ceramides, and Kakadu plum extract to help soothe, restore, and protect delicate baby skin.
Moisturisers often contain an emollient – a lipid that fills in spaces between skin cells and forms a protective layer to help prevent water loss and protect the skin barrier, all of which help to soften and smooth the skin.
Antioxidants such as vitamin C can help protect baby skin because they fight and remove little molecules called ‘free radicals’ that form when skin cells are damaged by things such as environmental pollution or sunlight.
