Manufacturers endeavour to introduce new and innovative products in the baby toiletries market
The parents of today take the hygiene of their new-borns very seriously. They try their best to ensure the availability of a healthy and safe environment to nurture their children. Hence, they are very particular about the baby bath and shower products that they use. These factors have encouraged several key manufacturers of baby toiletries to introduce products with new features and specifications that cater to the demands of their target customers. For instance, in 2018, Johnson & Johnson launched a new line of baby toiletries that contain a higher proportion of natural ingredients. In the same year, the company launched another set of baby toiletries featuring JOHNSON’S Active Kids Shiny Drops Shampoo and conditioner for growing healthy and nourished hair. In 2017, Khomba Baby Soap re-launched its line of baby toiletries that contain new herbal ingredients with new soothing fragrances in the baby toiletries segment. Unilever plc, another major player in the baby toiletries market, launched a new set of baby soaps for the North American market. The company has been aiming at introducing new products for two consecutive years for the global baby toiletries market.

Manufacturers of baby toiletries are adopting precautionary measures during production
Owing to the growing concerns of parents regarding the maintenance of the hygiene of their new-borns and toddlers, the manufacturers of baby toiletries are planning to change the ingredients used for the production of the baby toiletries produced by them. For instance, in 2014, Johnson & Johnsons announced that it has created a new formula for its shampoo, which is being sold under the label “improved formula” in baby toiletries segment. In the improved formula, the company claims to have removed the formaldehyde content. Formaldehyde, which is a naturally-occurring chemical found in several types of fruits, is considered as a cancer-causing agent when used in high doses. The company has been taking special care when it comes to the production of these types of baby toiletries for the global market. Similarly, there are several other harmful ingredients that need to be used cautiously by the manufacturers of baby toiletries. These include triethanolamine and Cocamide DEA, some of the other cancer-causing agents used in the production of several baby toiletries such as shampoos and soaps. Benzethonium chloride has large-scale applications in the production of baby toiletries such as baby wipes. However, even if a small amount is ingested by an infant, it is likely to cause vomiting, collapse, convulsions, coma, or, in certain cases, death.

For instance, in 2018 Mother Sparsh launched 98% water-based baby wipes, one of the main types of baby toiletries for the Indian market. Liquid soaps are one such product which has been gaining traction amognst its target segments. In the same year, Kimberly-Clark announced the launch of several new and improved versions of baby toiletries, such as baby wipes and baby soaps, under its famous brand Huggies. The launching new products in the global market is one of key strategies adopted by the key manufacturers of baby toiletries to be competitive in the market. For instance, in 2016, Hindustan Unilever launched a new set of baby care products to pose stiff competition against the dominance of Johnson & Johnson in the Asia Pacific region, thus creating a whole new competitive phase in the global baby toiletries market.
