Chemicals and toxins in the so called ‘Organic’ products have been tormenting my mind ever since I had my second baby whose skin seems quite sensitive. At bath time, I’m typically quite worried since I’m always unsure as to how products are going to react on her as that’s the time we actually end up using the maximum number of products all the way from massage oils, to soaps, shampoos and lotions.
It so unfair that the so-called safe products actually have a ton of chemicals which can have such long-lasting effects on anyone, leave alone babies! Having known the effects, I really do not like the idea of exposing them to these toxins so early on, actually never!
So when I came across ‘Mamaearth’ it felt like someone had really really put their mind to making something amazing for babies. Products, which are absolutely free of all toxins; no Parabens, Pthalates, Peg, Mineral Oil, Fragrances Etc. It’s Asia’s first ‘MadeSafe’ certified toxin-free brand, which has lovely baby-friendly products. They use some awesome stuff to make their products amazing and put in a ton of research to come up with some super effective ingredient combinations. These products are free of 8000 known toxins and that surely gave me a lot of confidence, which just increased after I used these products.
Mamaearth is conceptualized and started by a Delhi couple who after having a baby were in a state of shock that they had to expose their baby to a host of chemicals as no really safe products were available in the country and the next best option was to source some imported products at crazy prizes. They decided to come to the rescue of many such parents and introduced this lovely brand, which is not heavy on the pocket as well.
Now our bath-time focus is to have fun rather than bothering about hazardous chemicals and toxins. We have a lovely 45 minute bath-time routine which starts with the Mamaearth Soothing Massage Oil with its amazing blend of oils; Sesame, Olive, Sweet Almond and Jojoba. The way the oil gets absorbed into the skin is fantastic, just perfect for these winter months. Their Deeply Nourishing Body Wash that we use for bathing has coconut based cleansers which help in moisture retention and also reduce the chances of the body absorbing harmful chemicals from their surroundings. What I like best about this product is the fresh orange fragrance, which comes from the orange essential oils they use in the product.
Similarly, Mamaearth Gentle Cleansing Shampoo For Babies is also a coconut-based cleanser which foams really fast and thereby makes the tough shampooing process rather easy. The use of lavender in the product is great as it keeps at bay several infant scalp diseases like cradle cap and infant dandruff.
We end our bath routine with the Mamaearth Moisturizing Lotion for Babies heavily enriched with Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Calendula Extract, Jojoba Oil and Almond oil. It’s an extremely soothing lotion which gets absorbed instantly. The product is so soothing and causes absolutely no redness, even on my 3 month old’s extremely sensitive skin. The freshness remains even after a few hours.
It’s just great that young people are putting their mind to the problems parents are facing today and coming up with effective solutions, rather than just being commercially motivated. Surely helped to solve a big problem for me!!
