We love our babies, and we certainly love protecting them from the harsh chemicals and ingredients so often found in food, drinks, and personal care products, am I right?? So I'm happy to introduce you to the brand Baby Mantra, providing an earth-friendly range of extremely gentle personal care products for children (newborn to 8 years old). Made in the USA with all-natural skincare ingredients, Baby Mantra products have been certified by the Natural Products Association (NPA), are gluten-free, allergy-tested, dye-free, and cruelty-free. Hooray!
Here's the set of 6 Baby Mantra natural baby skincare products that I received, and so too shall the winner of our giveaway!!!
1. 3-in-1 Bubble Bath, Shampoo & Wash (with lavender oil & aloe)
2. Detangling Conditioner (natural baby conditioner with coconut & lavender oil)
3. Newborn Shampoo & Wash (natural baby shampoo with coconut & olive oil)
4. Calming Lotion (with shea butter & lavender oil)
5. Diaper Rash Ointment (with jojoba & sunflower seed oil; 10% zinc oxide)
6. Calming Massage Oil (natural baby oil with apricot & avocado oil)
The first one I tried out was the calming lotion. It was nice and thin, not pasty or oily, and smelled lovely - very natural, not overly sweet or fake. The scent is actually so neutral, I think even my husband would use it. The bottle says that the formula not only moisturizes but also helps heal and protect baby's skin, and is also good for children and adults with sensitive skin.
Next up I tried the calming massage oil. I never did baby massage though it intrigued me and I always wanted to take a class on it. For now, I rubbed it onto my big belly which can always use some extra help! Let me just say, this stuff smells AMAZING!!! I guess it's the apricot, it's really really nice. The bottle mentions you can also use it on hair and scalp, and while rubbing oil on your scalp seems like a terrible idea I have two words for you: cradle cap. I bet this stuff would be great for that!
My toddler is out of diapers and we still have a few months before the twins are due, so while I couldn't give it a proper trial I can attest to the Diaper Rash Ointment being nice and thick and seeming like it would do a good job at creating a barrier and protecting your little one's bum. It features 10% zinc oxide (a key ingredient for both good diaper creams and sunblocks), as well as almond oil, rosemary leaf, and jojoba. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't smell nice (though it doesn't smell bad either). It smells like just about any diaper cream. But we don't use diaper creams for the lovely smell, do we?
OK, so Baby Mantra is kicking it in my book. Natural products that work and you can feel comfortable using on your baby (or yourself)! You can purchase their products in a number of retail shops (check their store locator to find a retailer near you), as well as on Amazon, babiesrus.com, drugstore.com, diapers.com, and walgreens.com.
