Furthermore, many medical practitioners have been recommending parents for regular usage of personal care products for better skin nourishment of the baby. This has spurred the demand for skin and bathing products and other toiletries as consumers are willing to pay premium prices for these products and toiletries, depending on its quality.

Parents across the globe have become more cautious while choosing baby toiletries. Demand for chemical-free and harmless baby care toiletries has been increasing owing to rising awareness related to various health-related issues, such as fungal and bacterial infection, caused by synthetic baby products and toiletries.

This has encouraged many manufacturers to produce baby care toiletries made from natural ingredients, such as jojoba oil, almond oil, avocado oil, and beeswax. Toiletries that are derived from natural and organic ingredients are rich in nutritional values and they protect the baby's skin from all types of skin infections as well as provide necessary nourishment.

Lately, the baby toiletries market has been attracting many manufactures who are constantly trying to provide their products to a large consumer base by offering innovative products and services to consumers at an affordable price. For instance, EVEREDEN, a startup founded in 2018, is engaged in the production of natural and non-toxic products, such as baby shampoo, massage oil, multi-purpose healing balm, and diaper cream. The company offers its toiletries with prices ranging from USD 21 to 27 dollars, which is comparatively cheaper than luxury brands.
