I like baby shampoo and use it frequently. While I haven't tried too many generic versions, the ones I have used have been fine. I guess my indication of "gentleness" is what happens if a bit of it gets into the eye...."no more tears" as they say.
I've been loving QED's EO shampoo line so I've left the baby stuff behind awhile. What is DO use it for is my daily eye hygiene. This is something my lifelong optometrist recommended. He told his patients t take a drop of baby shampoo on a fingertip, work it up with a bit of water, and wash the lid margins daily. While I ridiculed this for years, I learned later that dead cells, airborne crud, and other junk tends to accumulate on the eyelids. They have a fancy term for it, "blepharitis".
