We’re big fans of multitasking products, and Lina Hanson‘s new Global Baby Serum has both mom and baby covered for a variety of skin soothing purposes. This vegan and cruelty free baby oil is handmade in the USA in small batches and comprised of a 100% natural and organic blend of globally sourced oils, including featured ingredient Kalahari Melon (watermelon) Seed Oil that is harvested by women’s cooperatives in Africa. Due to Fair Trade practices, the harvesting of this oil provides support for their entire communities. Watermelon seed oil is one of the gentlest and safest oils to nourish baby’s delicate skin, and it doubles as an ideal belly oil during pregnancy because of its inherent properties known to help increase skin elasticity and prevent and treat stretch marks. Additionally, the fragrance free Global Baby Serum may be used for cradle cap and baby massages, and it absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. This must-have addition to baby and mama’s repertoire is completely free of chemical ingredients and artificial/synthetic fragrances, essential oils, tree nut oil, parabens, silicone and petrochemicals. Treat yourself or a mama and baby you know to a bottle of this luscious serum which may also be added to the bath for a moisturizing soak.

The latest generation of eco-friendly baby toys look indistinguishable from their more toxic counterparts — and we think it’s great that you don’t have to sacrifice style or aesthetics when making more planet-friendly toy choices. Bioserie toys are the latest to pop up on our radar, and they are derived from plant sugars (which come from annually renewable plants)! Currently raising funds on indiegogo, the bioserie toy product line includes a ring stacker, a cutlery set (including an angled spoon inspired by an antique baby feeding spoon), a rattle, and a starfish teether.
