You only want the best for your baby, so you’ve likely been paying a lot of attention to what you feed them. But, what about what you’re using on their skin? A baby’s skin is much thinner and more permeable than an adult’s skin. And as skin is the largest organ of your baby’s body, skin care products can noticeably affect your baby’s health.
So why use organic skin care?
Many skin care products contain soaps and sulphates which are drying and can irritate skin conditions like eczema and nappy rash. Creams and lotions may also contain petroleum jelly which blocks pores and can easily foster infection. Instead of ingredients like these, natural and organic products contain natural alternatives which don’t have these negative effects on your baby’s skin.
Skin irritation is not the only concern, because what is applied to the skin is also absorbed into the bloodstream. Using organic products means toxins like those in other skincare products don’t end up in your baby’s body.
After sun care
Just like your skin, your baby’s skin is sensitive to climate. Use Baby Organics 95% certified organic Aloe Vera to rehydrate skin after sun exposure. Keep in mind that Cancer Council Victoria recommends that babies are not exposed to any direct sunlight during times of the day when the UV rating is 3 or above.
Essential oils form a protective barrier on the skin’s surface to help protect it from irritation. They also enhance the moisture level of the skin, preserving its natural oils. This makes the 77% certified organic Baby Organics Baby Bath Wash perfect for your baby’s bath time. It contains lavender and lemon myrtle essential oils for calm and nourishment.
Therapeutic skin care
Certified organic products also have soothing, therapeutic benefits that aren’t present with synthetic products. After washing your baby, give her a gentle massage with Baby Organics Baby Massage Oil. Massage oil is perfect for additional skin nourishment that is often needed in the dry and cold conditions of winter. The tangerine and chamomile essential oils will also invoke a sense of calm in your little one and help her to sleep.
Preserve your baby’s beautiful and soft skin with organic skin care.
