My son has exzema. He’s got it on his entire body and has had it since he was born. The doctor has given us samples of tons of different lotions and products to try. Nothing worked, so when I was sent samples of the Dermo-Pediatrics line from Mustela I was anxious to try it.
I used the samples for about a week just to see if there were any changes to his skin at all. Thankfully, after about 5 days you could tell the Mustela was making a difference. This poor little guy has received criticism from everyone about his skin and now I can finally say it’s clearing up! Even after 5 days there was a noticable difference and he was beginning to look “normal” again!

More about the new Stelaprotect line recently launched by Mustela
Mustela, the number one skin care specialist for babies and mothers-to-be in Europe, has once again created a new range of products that address specific skin conditions. The new Dermo-Pediatrics Stelaprotect™ range consists of four products that were developed especially for newborns, babies and children who have sensitive to intolerant skin.
”Although many parents may claim that their child has ‘sensitive’ skin, this is really only true for those children whose skin reacts to such triggers as environmental, emotional and even psychological factors,” states Nanette Silverberg, MD, Director of Pediatric and Adolescent Dermatology, St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital. “Parents should seek products for their child that can specifically improve the skin’s own physical barrier as well as boost the skin’s tolerance level which will hopefully result in healthier skin.”
High Tolerance Products for Sensitive to Intolerant Skin
Sensitive skin can be characterized as skin that overreacts to certain internal (emotional), environmental (cold, wind, sun, pollution, etc.) and external factors such as hard water, irritating cleansers and skin products not designed for sensitive skin. The result is a temporary redness of the skin and a tight, stinging feeling.
The new Stelaprotect™ products are formulated with a minimum number of ingredients that were selected for their high tolerance and affinity with baby’s skin. A patented, specific ingredient of natural origin helps reinforce the skin’s own physical barrier while addressing both the causes and symptoms of the skin’s sensitivity.
The Specific Ingredient: Avocado Sugars
Expanscience Laboratories, Mustela’s parent company, is the one of the largest independent pharmaceutical companies in Europe. The company is particularly well known for its expertise in lipochemistry which involves the extraction of active ingredients from oils. The avocado used in the Stelaprotect™ range is in sugar form, a natural patented ingredient found in all Stelaprotect™ products. Oil is extracted from dried avocado which is then turned into purified avocado sugars. This complex of rare plant sugars is effective in reinforcing the skin’s own physical barriers thus increasing its tolerance. The hypoallergenic formula is also fragrance-free, colorant-free, paraben-free and preservative-free.
A Complete Range for Head to Toe Coverage
To help parents care for baby’s sensitive skin, Stelaprotect™ offers four distinct products, each designed to reinforce the skin’s barrier while increasing skin tolerance. The skin is protected, soothed and hydrated, and gradually the skin’s integrity is restored. The gentle texture provides excellent ‘glide’ and pleasure of use for both the parent and baby.
Stelaprotect™ Face Cream ($16) hydrates the skin immediately and soothes tightness and discomfort. Stelaprotect™ Body Milk ($18) also provides immediate hydration on baby’s body. Stelaprotect™ Cleansing Foam ($16) gently cleanses the skin without drying it. Simply apply two to four pumps on the skin before rinsing. This cleaning foam can be used on the hair and body of newborns, babies and children with sensitive skin. For cleansing without rinsing, Stelaprotect™ No-Rinse Cleanser ($14) is perfect for face, body and diaper area. To ensure safety from contamination, the tubes are airless and packaged in a protective environment.
Clinical Studies Demonstrate Efficacy
A complement of medical professionals including pediatricians, dermatologists and pediatric nurses gathered data from parents of babies and children with hypersensitive skin after they tried the new Stelaprotect products. Among the results were:
*94% and above found that their children’s skin tolerated the four products well.
*Over 85% found that the products provided immediate comfort for their children
*Over 80% found the products reduced the skin’s reactivity
