Does Mustela Have Fragrance? Only Some Do

Mustela products

If you are looking for a baby product that smells good and helps to moisturize your baby’s skin, you may want to consider the Mustela line of products. The first thing you need to do is check and see if the Mustela product you are considering has fragrance in it.

Some versions of Mustela have fragrance added, so if you do not want your baby’s skin exposed to scent, then you need to look for the product version that does not have any fragrance added. Read on to know more about it.

Does Mustela have a scent?

Mustela does not have a smell, but it contains some ingredients that can irritate the skin. These ingredients include lactic acid, lanolin, petrolatum, Cocamidopropyl betaine, and fragrance. The good news is that they do not use formaldehyde-releasing preservatives in their products. So you can rest assured knowing your baby’s skin is protected. 

Using fragrance-free or natural oils as part of your child’s bath routine will help eliminate any unwanted smells and will also help moisturize dry or sensitive skin. Also, read ingredient labels carefully before buying new products for your little one. Because certain ones might aggravate your child’s skin if used too often or left on for too long.

Is Mustela lotion fragrance-free?

Mustela lotion is fragrance-free and gentle enough for the most sensitive skin. It’s hypoallergenic, contains no alcohol, and can be used on the whole family. Use it to remove makeup and clean my face at night with a cotton pad and water. You may also use it as a moisturizer in the morning.

Mustela Products for Babies

Mustela baby products contain various ingredients that are mild and gentle to your baby’s skin. For example, the Mustela shampoo is made with Soothing Fennel Extract. It is an anti-irritant with calming properties that will help relieve any dryness or itchy scalp caused by allergies or eczema.

The following are all Mustela products suggested for babies: 

Dermo-Kids Foaming Wash: 

This product has been formulated to gently cleanse the face and neck in preparation for dermo-kids lotion application. It does not have a fragrance.

Dermo-Kids Lotion: 

This lotion contains the same soothing fennel extract as the baby shampoo but in a lighter moisturizing formula. It is fragrance-free and hypoallergenic, so it will not irritate any baby’s skin conditions, such as allergies or eczema. 

Dermo-Kids Hair and Body Wash: 

This product is designed to be used on hair and body during bath time. It also includes the same soothing fennel extract from our other products and wheat proteins, which have a natural conditioning effect on hair. The product is fragrance-free.

Unlike baby shampoo, this shampoo does contain a fragrance. It comes with Lavender oil which is known for its calming properties and has helped make the perfect solution for red or irritated scalps and acne-prone skin. 

Mustela Baby Moisturizer: 

Mustela Baby Moisturizer does not have fragrance because it is made with a non-greasy formula that absorbs quickly into the skin. The only scent you will notice when using this product is natural ingredients, such as lavender, which are gentle on a baby’s skin.

Mustela Precious Cream Bath (for ages 0+): 

use this cream bath to give your little one a luxurious experience when bathing. A small amount is enough to cover the entire body.

How do you know if a product is fragrance-free?

To know if a product is fragrance-free, you can read the label and look for words like fragrance-free or unscented. You can also read reviews to see if anyone has complained about any fragrance in the product.


The use of fragrance in skin care products can be controversial, with some people being susceptible to the chemicals and opting for un-fragranced products. It is your judgment call on whether or not you want to purchase a product that contains fragrance. As previously mentioned, if you are highly sensitive to scents, you may want to look for a product that does not contain fragrances. You also need to consider what type of smell or fragrance you prefer when looking at a product with an odor because different types will smell differently from one another, which will also play a role in determining whether or not you like it.
