There’s nothing more delicate than a newborn baby’s skin. And like the food we put into their bodies, taking care of what we put on their delicate skin is just as important. One of the best ways to protect sensitive newborn skin is to use a natural baby skincare product, that’s free from harmful chemicals including yukky toxins and hidden nasties.
