If you’re one of the lucky ones, and your sweet babe doesn’t suffer from diaper rash, you’ll still be thrilled to have L’occitane’s Shea Butter Mom and Baby Balm on hand — literally. We all know the amount of hand-washing that goes along with diaper changes, and this rich and creamy balm (which doesn’t leave hands with a greasy residue) is based on an ancient tradition of African mothers massaging their babies with “magical” Shea Butter to welcome them to the world. The purest blend of all natural ingredients including calendula, oats, and grape vine add up to make this Mom and Baby Balm a treasured tin.

    Make sure that whatever product you are using on baby’s bum is Certified Organic. If it’s not, you risk putting pesticides, gmo & synthetic chemicals on baby’s most sensitive area. To be certified organic means it has been certified to food-grade standards. Never put anything on your baby’s skin that you wouldn’t put in her mouth. Unlike food, what you put on the skin isn’t metabolized by the liver and goes directly into the bloodstream. Babies are more susceptible to chemicals in personal care products than adults are.

    According to a Special Report by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics:
    “According to the National Academy of Sciences, several factors contribute to children’s exceptional vulnerability to the harmful effects of chemicals (NAS 1993):

    * A child’s chemical exposures are greater pound-for-pound than those of an adult.
    * Children are less able than adults to detoxify and excrete chemicals.
    * Children’s developing organ systems are more vulnerable to damage from chemical exposures.
    * Children have more years of future life in which to develop disease triggered by early exposure.

    Consider the skin. Studies confirm what any parent knows: an infant’s skin is soft and delicate (Fluhr 2000; Giusti 2001). Infant skin is also considerably thinner than adult skin; in fact, the thickness of children’s skin increases linearly with age, typically reaching a maximum at age 20 (Tan 1982). The thin skin of a newborn may well be more permeable to specific chemicals than the skin of an adult. Compounding this fact, the surface area of a child’s skin relative to body weight is greater than adults, such that the potential dose of a chemical following dermal exposure is likely to be about 3 times greater in infants than in adults (West 1981; Clewell 2002).”

    all the products sound great! but don’t forget that mommies should be using equally natural products

  3. copro says:

    Some of these products have lavendar oil. I thought that was something we were supposed to be avoiding.

    Hi Copro-

    In all my research, lavender oil has indeed been deemed safe for use during pregnancy and on children. If you have read otherwise, I’d love if you’d share your source.

    Thanks,
    Beth
