7 Benefits Of Using Natural Baby Products For Your Baby's Skin
Just like every mom (and dad), we always think about what products to use that will not cause any harm to our baby's skin and overall health. There are so many options to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming sometimes. Some products can be a little pricier than others, and some may not have clean ingredients. We want to avoid ingredients that contain chemicals that cause irritation and allergic reactions.
Natural baby care products are made with ingredients that are derived from plants and minerals. These are gentler on baby's skin than synthetic chemicals or petroleum compounds found in many store-bought brands of lotions and other products designed for babies' skin!
In choosing a natural product, finding something that works well for both moisturizing and helping treat issues such as eczema which can cause chapping.
Here are 7 reasons why you should opt for natural products for baby’s skin:
1. They are better for your baby’s health
They contain fewer chemicals than other types of skincare products. Chemicals can irritate your baby’s sensitive skin and cause rashes or other skin problems. Natural ingredients DO NOT cause these problems because they are less likely to contain artificial fragrances or preservatives that are sometimes present in other types of baby lotions or soaps. Natural baby care products keep a child's skin healthy and nourishing in the right direction.
2. They're free from harmful chemicals
Natural baby products don't contain any harmful chemicals like parabens, phthalates, artificial colors or fragrances. These ingredients aren't safe for babies because they can cause skin irritations for babies sensitive skin or worst, they can cause allergic reactions! Natural baby products are also free of alcohol. Alcohol-based products can dry out your baby's skin and that could also cause irritation over time if used too often! Always be mindful of what you use on your baby as strong scents can irritate them and cause discomfort with their super-sensitive airways.
3. They are better for the environment
Natural products are produced without using any synthetic ingredients, therefore, they don't harm the environment. Natural products also have less of a negative impact on Mama Earth because they don't contain chemicals or preservatives which can harm the wildlife and our rainforests . As a parent, it’s also important to teach our children to care for Mama Earth. Going eco-friendly is not just a new trend, it’s a collective effort to save Mama Earth and create a safe haven for our little ones!
4. Worry-free – you will feel good about using them on your child's skin!
Harmful chemicals are a big ‘no-no’ on our children’s skin! This is not something we’ll compromise on. We always worry about putting these harmful chemicals on our babies' skin because we want to protect them from any future effects that might occur as our children grow. Worried about the safety of using traditional baby wipes or lotions? Then time for you to switch using a more natural product that is safe for both you and your child. No need to stress about what to use on your child.
5. Natural products will not irritate your child's sensitive skin.
Babies’ skins are so delicate that they can easily become irritated by regular products such as lotions and creams. Notice that babies develop a rash after using certain types of products. This may be an indication that something needs to be changed in order to prevent it from getting worse! . Natural products don't cause irritation when used on sensitive areas such as around the eyes or face area; instead, they nourish and keep baby skin healthy. Because they are delicately curated they are gentle enough for our little one.
6. Love your furry friends - the ingredients in these products aren't tested on animals
This means no animal testing was involved when creating them which is a HUGE plus for unparents and vegans out there. Especially those who sell products made from animal byproducts such as lanolin (which comes from sheep wool). When you do and if necessary, always ensure animals are treated with love and lots of care, and they are gentle to them.
7. They smell great!
Natural products smell so much better than regular ones (even when they are scent-free- which we always recommended!). They don't have any artificial scents added to them which makes sense because what would make something smell good if it didn't come from nature?
