It’s Time to Talk About Baby Skincare!bella
It’s the summer time! ‘Tis the season for the beach, barbecues, and loads of sunshine!
Did you also know that July, August, and September are recognized as the most popular months of the year to give birth?
Whether or not this is the result of being cooped up inside of our homes too often throughout the winter remains up for debate (LOL). However, one thing we do know is that once our babies have arrived, they require specific care to ensure they remain strong and healthy throughout the earliest stages of their development.
Of course, we know to keep our babies in the shade and to bundle them up in protective clothing, but when we consider how much thinner and sensitive the skin of a baby is in comparison to that of an adult, we have other considerations that need to be taken into account. It’s time to start thinking about baby skincare on the whole!
?? BABY SKINCARE ??
One thing that all babies have in common is that THEY’RE ALL TOTALLY ADORABLE!!! But when it comes to their skin, each baby is different and has a unique set of individual needs. Some babies are prone to diaper rash and skin irritation while others suffer from dryness and flaking. And sometimes, chubbier babies can develop skin rolls and folds that can benefit from special moisturizers.
For all these reasons and more, we are proudly carrying GAIA Natural Baby products in our online shop.
GAIA uses ingredients that are most essential for a baby’s needs throughout the first five years of their lives. Each of their fabulous products are gentle, non-irritating, moisturizing, and softening! The help to nourish, nurture, and care for their skin without fuss or irritation!
Calming plant extracts and organic vegetable oils are used to ensure the skin is softened, soothed, and moisturized without drying out!
The natural and organic oils used in their products are as follows:
- Wheat Germ Oil
- Rosehip Oil
- Organic Evening Primrose Oil
- Organic Avocado Oil
- Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Extract
- Organic Oat Extract
- Organic Shea Butter
- Organic Calendula
- Organic Chamomile
- Organic Lavender
- Organic Sweet Orange
Every member of the GAIA Natural Baby line is suitable for all skin types, including those with sensitivities and specific irritations – this means that their baby skincare products are also eczema friendly!
Their products are never tested on animals, nor do they include any animal ingredients, making their range entirely* vegan-friendly (*with the exception of the Skin Soothing Lotion which contains beeswax)! You can learn more about their commitment against cruelty here.
Finally, GAIA Natural Baby is becoming a staple in maternity hospitals and among midwives, material child health nurses, and other various health professionals!
For the expecting mothers who are still waiting on their due date to arrive, they also carry belly oils and butters to maintain your supple skin and its natural elasticity, and for the new mothers who are breastfeeding, be sure to look into the nipple balm to protect yourself against soreness and cracking!
If you’re new to motherhood, we just know the wide range of GAIA protects will provide you with comfort and peace of mind throughout the early years of your little one(s) life!
