Why has this new range of products been developed?
Because in Carelia we love our children and want to share this love with yours. Because the natural plant origin ingredients are more akin to the structure of the skin of a child.

A child's skin is thinner and more sensitive than an adult one and therefore, the chemicals we you use in childhood increase the risk of adverse effects in the future of your child.
