Most babies love water. This makes sense since water was all they knew for their first 9 months. For most new parents, bathing a newborn can be quite daunting. Take the stress and strain out of deciding what bath products to use – and go organic. Believe it or not, even the most commonly recognized baby washes contain SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate). This is a harsh, synthetic detergent (that is also used in household cleaning products!) and it is known to irritate and harm a newborn’s delicate skin.
Skincare Tip: A must-have in your bathroom is a gentle, SLS-free baby wash. Pure Beginnings have formulated beautiful bath washes which safely and effectively cleanse your baby from head to toe. Our Soothing Baby Wash & Shampoo is an all-in-one rosemary and geranium scented body wash and shampoo. It contains baobab extract, which helps to soothe and moisturise the skin. The ultra-mild plant-based surfactants are very gentle and won’t strip the skin of natural oils, leaving it clean but not dry, inflamed, or irritated.
If you’d prefer a fragrance-free wash, try our Probiotic Baby Sensitive Cream Wash. This product has been formulated to protect and feed the skin’s microbiome with the inclusion of prebiotic and probiotic ingredients. Ideal for any skin!
We are huge believers in baby/parent bonding! Though not an essential part of your day-to-day skincare regime, baby massage is wonderfully rewarding and a great way to carve out time for just you and your baby at the end of a busy day. The benefits of baby massage are endless, and when combined with top quality organic products, it also helps to protect and nourish your little one’s skin.
Skincare Tip: Use safe products, designed with health and wellness in mind. Pure Beginnings has 3 options when it comes to massage products: Soothing Baby Massage & Bath Oil with Kalahari melon (if you prefer to use an oil), Baby Lotion with organic baobab (for those who love a gentle and natural fragrance) or Probiotic Baby Sensitive Body Cream, (which is fragrance free). Any one of these safely and beautifully nourish your baby’s skin.
