Best natural products for your baby
As you’re already well aware, there are thousands upon thousands of beauty products out there for women. And while the scale may not be as big when it comes to products for your little one, there are still so many that it can be daunting and confusing to know which ones to buy.
So we thought we’d lend a helping hand and highlight a few of our favourite baby products. Our focus today: natural baby products. Products that are free from the nasties (like petrochemicals and sulphates) and are chockfull of natural or organic ingredients that care for your baby’s delicate skin.
Natural body wash for your baby
Chamomile, lavender, rosehip, jojoba and essential oils sound like a pretty luxurious combo, right? Natural Instinct Baby Bath Wash contains all these (plus more) to ensure your baby’s skin is cleansed, nourished, and refreshed. Oh, and we won’t tell if you sneak some into your own bath time.
Natural shampoo for your baby
Avado Organics Baby Naturals Shampoo ($11.99, avadoorganics.com) is made from a blend of organic avocado, organic jojoba and German chamomile oils to keep that teeny-tiny head of theirs well looked after. It ensures your bub’s scalp is hydrated and supple and their hair luxuriously soft.
Natural multi-tasking bath product for your baby
Make bath time that much easier with Nature’s Care Baby Paw Paw Shampoo and Body Wash ($9.66, Woolworths), the cleanser that will have your baby clean from top-to-toe. The soap-free, pH-balanced formula will keep your little one’s skin soft and nourished and their hair silky smooth.
Natural sponge for your baby
Why not go the whole nine yards and pair your baby’s natural body wash with a natural sponge that won’t cause irritation? The Meeka Natural Fine Silk Baby Sea Sponge is 100 per cent natural, toxin free, and hypoallergenic, making it perfect for your bub’s soft, delicate skin.
Natural baby powder for your baby
GAIA Natural Baby Powder is a talc-free, organic lavender-filled powder that helps absorb moisture from your baby’s skin, especially in the skin folds and nappy area. You’ll find this natural powder will help ease the discomfort caused by nappy rash and any other irritations.
Natural lotion for your baby
Yes To may be your favourite natural brand, but did you know they did products for bubs, too? And the Yes To Baby Carrots Nourishing Baby Lotion is one baby product you shouldn’t be without. Organic aloe vera, carrots, and rich cocoa butter work together to leave your little one’s skin soothed, nourished, and…err…baby soft.
Natural bum cream for your baby
Nappy rash can be frustrating for both you and your baby, so it’s best to nip it in the bud with an effective, soothing cream. Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment is enriched with vitamins A and E to nourish and soothe skin, while ingredients like lavender oil and chamomile oil help calm the skin.
Natural wipes for your baby
WOTNOT Baby Wipes, besides being super thick and luxurious on skin, are free from chlorine, sulphates, petrochemicals, parabens, caustics, glycols, and artificial fragrances (whew! That’s a lot). All you’ll find in these soothing, cleansing wipes is Australian certified organic aloe vera.
