Like most babies, my girls have sensitive skin. I really don’t know a child who’s skin isn’t sensitive, since their skin can be thinner than that of adult skin, so it’s always important to use gentle products on younger skin. When I was pregnant I researched everything that I was putting on my baby’s skin. This is where I learned about harmful chemicals and possible carcinogens and hormone disrupters that were lurking in popular bath products. From that moment on, I knew I would always read labels and be wary about what I used on my children.
5 years ago, there were only a handful of brands that were available that I would actually use on my children. Now, more parents are educating themselves on products and ingredients, so there is more of a demand for all natural, chemical-free baby products than ever. Baby Mantra is a skincare brand that was created by two sisters who shared the same feelings I did when it came to skincare safety. They created products that are not only safe for babies sensitive skin, but also for the environment.
My two daughters, although they have sensitive skin, have different triggers and symptoms when it comes to irritation. My oldest daughter has eczema that is triggered by cold weather. My younger daughter gets rough patches often, although we haven’t been able to identify one specific thing that sets her off. Both girls bathe and use the same skin care products, and I’, happy to say that after using Baby Mantra for a few weeks, they haven’t had any skin issues at all! As a matter of fact, Baby Mantra bubble bath is the ONLY bubble bath that my youngest can use. Other bath soap leaves her skin irritated and dry.
Baby Mantra has a delicate scent that my girls love. Both girls have issues with knots forming in their hair, but the detangling conditioner left their hair silky-soft and easy to comb. After bath time, both girls enjoy a light foot massage with Baby Mantra Calming Oil, and get ready for bed.
Do you read labels? I read them ALL the time, and when I read the ingredients list on any Baby Mantra label, I understand what each item is. Things like avocado oil, aloe, and coconut are all REAL ingredients. All their products are made in the US and can be purchased at Walgreens/Duane Reade, Babies R Us, and Amazon.
