Newborn babies and children have delicate skin that is more susceptible to toxins and environmental stresses making it even more important to nourish your baby's skin with organic skin care. Read on for our top tips for the best natural and organic products to keep your baby safe and their skin healthy.
Small red spots appearing around baby's bottom, groin and legs generally signals nappy rash. In serious cases the skin may get inflamed or broken - not nice for baby which means not nice for mummy and daddy either!
The usual cause of nappy rash is wet or dirty nappies breaking down into ammonia compounds which cause bacterial skin irritation. For a fast, effective and natural nappy rash treatment, try the 100% natural Little Innoscents Soothing Cream which is made with rich moisturisers to soothe, calm and moisturise the skin.
Eczema is abnormally dry skin with inflammation. Some older babies get regions of inflammation with flaking or peeling of the skin, particularly around the face and inner folds of the elbow and knee. For the most effective eczema cream, try White Mallow Face Cream which is made with 97% organic ingredients, including white mallow, pansy extracts, sweet almond oil and sesame seed oil, the cream is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids which may help to nourish and protect delicate baby skin.
Protecting baby's delicate skin from the sun is absolutely essential. When you take your baby outside in the sun, all Australian mothers know it is essential to protect babies and children with appropriate sunscreen, hats, and loose fitting outfits made from sun protective materials. However, sunscreens are complex compounds, containing a surprising number of toxins in addition to their active constituents. The Eco Baby Sunscreen is specifically made for delicate baby skin, that is gentle enough to not irritate their skin but is still SPF 30+ and water resistant. Shea butter, jojoba and avocado oil will may also help to nourish and protect skin from the harsh sun.

For quick relief use the Little Innoscents Organic Vapour Rub, a 100% natural alternative to petrochemical filled vapour rub! This balm is made with Australian Certified Organic ingredients of fresh peppermint, wintergreen, lemon and eucalyptus which may help to clear the head and warm the body.
