Does baby tribotan lightens baby skin?
Mixing drugs like, Funbact A and Skineal with baby body creams is not healthy for the skin, especially for the skin of babies.They are drugs inform of medications and not body creams.The rate at which some mothers use them now is alarming and they even prescribe it to others openly like I read on some posts here on several occasion.
The side effects include steroids which are easily absorbed into the bloodstream from the fragile skin of the newborns and babies.
These lead to serious side effects on the long terms including gastritis (stomach ulcers), wounds, poor growth and other side effects.
If mothers religiously go through the packs of some of these medicated creams, words like “antifungal,” “antibacterial”, “anti-inflammatory” are written on them.
The constituents are drugs including antibiotics, antifungal and steroids and they are often prescribed for specific skin diseases and usually for a short duration and not usually more than two weeks. As a side effect, any triple action cream that contains steriod like skinneal and Funbact A has the ability to bleach or lighten the skin. It is this side effect tha mothers capitalise on to bleach their babies skin.
The good news about baby tribotan is that it contains only clotrimazole (an antifungal) and
Ichthammol BP 0.2% w/w (antibacterial). With these constituent, baby tribotan cannot bleach the skin and also does not lighten the skin.
The problem with some mothers is the ‘craziness’ to have fair skin babies.A lot of women are carried away by the desire for their babies to be fair, not knowing the dangers inherent in this dangerous practice.
There is more to having a fair baby, most babies are born fair but that does not mean they will remain fair.
Those with genetic makeup to be black will still be black irrespective of any concoctions applied or bleaching creams used. Mothers should always use natural products for babies such as Vaseline, Shea butter, Coconut Oil, Olive oil and other routine baby care products or better still ask a trusted organic products formulator for help.
Use medicated creams only on doctor’s prescription and for the duration recommended only.
In summary,both skinneal and Funbact A has the ability to lighten up your skin or make your baby’s skin fair because they contain steroids…this is not medically indicated so stop using them to bleach your baby’s skin. However, using baby tribotan to bleach your baby’s skin will not work because it does not contain steroids.
It is a moral crime and a crime of conscience against your baby to bleach their skin.
