I get quite a few emails from pregnant women asking about natural baby skin care products. Yes to Carrots have launched baby range called Yes to Baby Carrots. All of the products are natural and gentle.
I have two products from the range, which I passed on to a friend, Sarah, who has a baby for testing. There are more products in the range but not all of them have arrived in Ireland yet. Mammies might be particularly interested in the Soothing Diaper Cream which isn’t available here until March. I will keep you updated when I get my hands on some.
Personally I would choose any natural products for baby care over chemical laden lotions. They smell delicious but many of them contain known allergens and some contain potentially toxic ingredients. That being said, after a little research it’s every mothers personal choice.
Gentle Foaming Shampoo & Body Wash (€8.99 / $7.99)
This product is 100% natural. It cleanses and softens delicate hair and skin. It’s also tear-free and hypoallergenic. It contains no petroleum, SLS or parabens.
300ml – 10 fl oz.
Nourishing Baby Lotion (€8.99 / $7.99)
This product is also 100% natural. It soothes and softens your baby’s skin. It’s also free from petroleum, SLS or parabens. It smells gentle and delicate. I like that there is no synthetic fragrances used either. Sarah loved how moisturising the lotion is. She was delighted that it didn’t aggravate her baby’s eczema.
200ml – 6.76 fl oz.
Yes to Carrots products are sold in pharmacies nationwide here in Ireland. Their products are on sale in Debenhams if you live in the UK and if you live in the US you can order from their website. As for the rest of the world, click here for a store finder.
I have added a Pregnancy and Baby category to my blog and will update it regularly.
