  18. In baby massage sessions we supply Organic Sunflower Oil.
    • The NHS recommends parents do not use any oils or lotions until their baby is one month old. This is because at birth, the top layer of a baby’s skin is very thing and easily damaged.  Over the first month (or longer in premature babies), a baby’s skin matures and develops its own natural protective barrier (NCT 2017).
    • One small study has suggested that twice daily use of 4 drops of sunflower oil for 4 weeks had a detrimental effect on the lipid structure of newborn skin (newborn to 4 weeks of age).  This study was carried out on newborn babies.  (Cooke 2016).
    • Infrequent use of sunflower oil, particularly in older babies is very unlikely to have any significant effect on a baby’s skin health.
    • Olive oil is not recommended, and coconut oil cools the skin and as babies cannot control their temperature it is best not to use this oil either.
    • You may wish to massage your baby very gently without any oil, or talk to your Health Professional and bring your own oil.
  19. If you have any concerns about possible allergic reactions, please speak to your Health Professional and bring your own approved oil.
  20. We hold Public Liability insurance to £6m.
