is jergens lotion okay to use on my younger kids? (3 nd 5 years old)

they have such dry skin, they do not get bathed daily, i have been using baby lotion on them yet but it just is not helping. is jergens overnight repair okay to use on them, primarily their hands/arms and butt/thighs?

  • yes it is ok to use but if you are afraid try to use it on a small part in their body to see if it doesn't cause allergies.

  • Don't see why not. Unless they have a reaction to it, I'd go for it.

  • Check the ingredients but honestly none of these lotions are good and for the crap they have in them, they are very expensive. You're better off with Unrefined Organic Shea Butter...it's all natural and you can use it on them, on you, on your pets with no worry. It's amazing for the hair as well and no grease left over mess. I swear by this stuff.

  • Jergens isn't really safe for anyone:

    Make sure that they drink lots of water, and eat healthy fats (like avocado). Olive oil or coconut oil are both great on skin, and quite safe.
