  • Difference between Baby Shampoo and Baby Wash

    I’m wondering is there any difference between baby wash and baby shampoo ? 
    Can you just simply use baby wash as baby shampoo as well ? 
    Or is baby wash too harsh for baby’s hair ?

    The main difference between body wash and shampoo are the way they are marketed. In fact, when the VO5 brand I used to work on came out with a body wash, we pretty much took our shampoo, changed the label to say body wash and started selling it. The formulas were basically the same.

    For baby wash / shampoo, it’s the same story. No, baby wash is not too harsh for baby’s hair.
