There’s nothing more delicate than newborn baby skin. And like the food we put into their bodies, taking care of the natural baby skincare products we put on their sensitive skin is just as important.
One of the best ways to protect sensitive newborn skin is to use a natural baby skincare product, one that’s free from all those harmful chemicals, yucky toxins and hidden nasties found in so many other products.
Australia’s top-selling skincare products for babies are free from irritants and use a combination of nourishing plant-derived ingredients including chamomile, lavender, and calendula to guard and soothe young skin while smelling absolutely delicious (or of nothing at all).
