Natural Skincare Products for Babies and Kids

This post is part of a sponsored collaboration with Baby Mantra.  As always, all opinions are my own and I only share products I actually like.

You've probably heard before that your skin is your largest organ.  It's true!  Your skin absorbs the topical products you slather on it which then go straight into your body.  When I was growing up, natural products weren't really a thing.  Back then it was all about how cheaply they could make a product, how quickly they could get it out to consumers and how great it smelled (after adding artificial fragrances).

Fast forward to the present and we are all about "free this, non that, organic this, natural that."  This is a good thing, though.  It seems like it would be so much easier and cheaper to just make things with natural ingredients the first time.

There are still quite a few children's skincare products on the market today that do contain added artificial ingredients to increase their shelf life and/or to enhance their smell or color, though.  My girls and I have very sensitive skin, so I'm very mindful of the products we use.  While I pride myself in being a practical convenience-shopper, I'm all about better-for-you products from stores I'm already shopping at.

Baby Mantra

Baby Mantra has been a brand that we've loved since 2014, and I just wanted to take some time today to share a little more information about their products with you.  Aside from being available online at www.babymantra.com, you can find their products at stores like Walgreens and Babies 'R Us.  These are stores you're probably already shopping at, so there's that convenience-factor I was talking about.

Created by two sisters on a mission to provide safe and ecologically sound skincare, Baby Mantra is a certified natural, cruelty-free and gluten-free baby skincare line that offers environmentally conscious products from the ingredients to the packaging. All of Baby Mantra's products are made in the U.S. and are inspired by all-natural home-based remedies.  Good skincare starts in the kitchen - or the garden, rather.

Natural Ingredients + New Certifications

The Baby Mantra website lists out their products' ingredients and their benefits, making it easier for us consumers.  I hate having to bounce around research ingredients.  Their products include ingredients like calming lavender, soothing coconut and avocado oils, apricot and moisturizing shea butter, so if you have any allergies, please read the ingredients lists thoroughly.  There are no added fragrances in these products, but they all smell so good, naturally!

Baby Mantra is now PETA and NPA certified, as well as EWG verified.  What on earth does that mean?

PETA Certified = cruelty free
NPA Certified = natural, safe, responsible and sustainable
EWG Verified = means that the product goes above and beyond its green rating in EWG's Skin Deep® because the company has disclosed more about its formulations and manufacturing processes.

My Favorite Baby Mantra Products

For my five-year-old, I'm loving the 3-in-1 Bubble Bath, Shampoo and Wash, followed by the Detangling Conditioner to tame her crazy-long hair.  I use the same 3-in-1 on my 21-month old, but to soothe her dry skin, we follow bath time with the Calming Massage Oil and the Calming Lotion.  My little one starts to get eczema right around the Fall season, and while we aren't able to get rid of it until the Spring/Summertime, we are able to maintain the dryness and itch by using Baby Mantra's calming products.

Try Baby Mantra

The next time you are at one of the Baby Mantra retailers, I recommend that you grab a bottle of their lotion or 3-in-1 Bubble Bath/Shampoo/Wash to give it a try.  They are constantly on a mission to deliver the highest quality products to improve the well-being of children, using the finest earth friendly and natural ingredients.  This is a brand that cares as much about your kids as you do and it truly shows through their social media pages, website and products.
