Our Dr. Mara Padilla Evangelista-Huber was the esteemed speaker at the Cetaphil Baby Gentle Cleansing Bar launch at the Edsa Shangri-La hotel last May 29, 2019. Dr. Mara discussed the differences between adult and baby skin, how to take care of baby and toddler skin, and what kind of products will benefit their delicate, sensitive skin.
Dr. Mara emphasized that skin in ages 0-3 is still maturing (did you know that baby’s skin is 30% thinner, lose water faster and has weaker immunity compared to adult skin?), which is why parents need to be conscientious in selecting products for their young ones. Baby/toddler skincare must focus on protecting the skin barrier, the outermost layer of the skin that prevents moisture from going out and irritants/microorganisms from going in.
This was a special event for Dr. Mara not only because she is a mom-to-be, but also because she shared the stage with Ms. Mariel Padilla, her aunt-in-law (Dr. Mara is the niece of Mr. Robin Padilla) and the new Cetaphil Baby Ambassador. Dr. Mara was also joined by Ms. Andi Manzano and Ms. Patty Laurel-Filart (Brand Ambassador and host respectively), her parents Dr. Thaddeus and Dr. Rowena Evangelista, the Cetaphil Philippines team, and other special mom-fluencers and their adorable little ones. Congratulations to Cetaphil Philippines and Dr. Mara for your successful event!
