Our Five Favourite Natural Baby Products
When it comes to our little ones, it is important that we are putting the safest ingredients on their delicate skin. Some conventional baby products contain ingredients that should not be going near anyone’s skin, especially sensitive skin that is so new to the world. In this editorial, we wanted to share five of our favourite baby products. Perfect for any expecting parent or for anyone looking to switch to natural options!
Gentle enough for babies with dry or sensitive skin types, this rich and soothing butter is infused with shea, calendula, and evening primrose oil to treat any flakiness or patches of irritated skin. This all-rounded wonder cream can be used anywhere on the body, from soothing dry skin around runny noses to the baby’s bottom to soothe nappy rashes. We love Nom Nom because all their products are formulated without harmful chemicals, such as parabens, SLS, DEA, TEA, and fragrances. All the ingredients are grown without pesticides or genetically modified organisms.
With a sleep-enhancing blend of lavender, chamomile and linden blossom, this baby oil is the perfect massage treat to guide little ones to sleep. The lightweight medley of beautiful, nurturing oils and delicate flower essences make this delightful oil perfect for baby massage and to encourage restful sleep. You can also add a few drops into an evening bath for extra hydration! We love Aurelia’s baby line because they use the purest organic ingredients that are sourced sustainably. They look at ingredients from seed to skin, to ensure they are using the purest and most ethical options.
This nappy balm may be one of the best options on the market. Totally free from harmful ingredients, making every diaper change nurturing, soothing, and kind for baby’s sensitive skin. It works to relieve redness and irritation caused by preexisting diaper rash and it even creates resistance to dampness. This nappy balm ensures protection against any uncomfortable rashes and irritation! We love SoKind because they create natural alternatives for mom and baby, that works for the most sensitive of skins. You’ll never find alcohol, fragrance, animal products, dyes, acetone, and more in any of their formulas.
Apricot and Oat Nurturing Cream Wash
Made for pregnant mothers, the postpartum period, and for newborns, the cream wash by Kenkô is a cleansing gel that gently cleanses. All the ingredients have a specific function for babies, mothers, and mothers-to-be and are included in active concentrations for an optimum effect. The wash is totally hypoallergenic, so you don’t need to worry about any irritation. They formulated this product without much of a scent as not to disturb the mother or babies’ natural scent, which are so interconnected following birth. We love Kenkô because their formulas are clean and they also donate to the Mommaluv foundation, which offers aid to mothers and babies in developing countries.
This balm should be a staple in every household, as it works to soothe bruises, bumps, and rashes. The magic balm is formulated with organic arnica, organic immortelle flower, and organic calendula, which all together work to soothe and repair the skin. A must for the entire family! Minois make their products in France in accordance with a very strict quality charter. Plus, the whole range is demagogically tested on sensitive skin, so you know it won’t cause any irritation. Of course, they never use any parabens, sulfates, silicones, or artificial fragrances!
