Babies are supposed to have buttery smooth skin right? That's why we have the saying "smooth as a baby's bottom"!! But let's face it, sometimes they're not silky smooth. Maybe they're dry from the harsh winter climate, or maybe they have eczema or other skin-related issues. You can't just run to Rite Aid and slap any old lotion on your little one! Do you know what kind of chemicals and phthalates and what not are in those?!
There are plenty of healthier and greener options to choose from, and I have one really cool one to let you know about. On the Spot by Sweet Knee is a no-mess balm that contains only FOUR ingredients! None of that "how do you say that!?!?" scary stuff! You've got your unrefined raw shea butter, virgin coconut oil, beeswax, and rosemary antioxidant - that's it! And all are certified organic and naturally gluten free. WOW!
Because of the simple and natural ingredients, you can put it anywhere - baby's ashy legs, chapped cheeks or lips, drool-irritated chest... And it comes in a really great roll-up stick form (like a giant tube of chapstick) that is easy for adults, fun for older kids to use themselves, and perfect for use while out and about. I gotta say, it does the job, feels nice, and smells pretty good too :)
You can buy On the Spot or you can...
Enter to win On the Spot (along with 8 other great prizes in a $300+ value jackpot) in my Great Winter Baby & Toddler Gear Giveaway, ending December 4.
On the Spot is sold by The Eczema Company, an online Canadian retailer selling natural products for children and adults with eczema. However most of their products are great for non-eczema sufferers as well! Their Scratch Me Not mittens are perfect for babies and are houdini-proof! They have tons of great lotions, green laundry solutions, healing hazelwood jewelry, you name it! We got their Calendulis Cream for my son's cheek which used to get red and irritated (mild eczema??) and it would heal right up after just one application!! That stuff is magical!
