I was recently given the opportunity to explore a variety of the lovely natural baby products from Baby Mantra. With a child with eczema, I’m always on the lookout for natural baby skincare products with great ingredients that will be gentle on his sensitive skin… bonus points if it helps heal it too.
I will start with what I call the “bath lineup.” The Baby Mantra natural baby shampoo and body wash has very pleasant light scent and is very gentle…. perfect for the newborns it was designed for and very gentle on sensitive skin. It has almost no bubbles. The combination of coconut and olive oil has been very good at adding moisture to our son’s skin. It leaves no strange residue or oiliness to his skin.
The 3-in-1 bubble bath is one of two products we’ve used the most. It’s so simple to bathe our son, because all the major necessities are in one bottle. We finally have a bubble bath that he can actually use without making his skin go completely crazy! It makes the most amazing and long-last bubbles that make bath time even more enjoyable for a kid who previously had to forego bubble baths. Whether showering or bathing, the one bottle gets him clean from head to toe and leaves his skin feeling softer. He doesn’t leave the tub itching, either.
The detangling natural baby conditioner is a great follow-up when his hair is feeling a bit dry. The cooler temperatures of fall and winter are beginning and he inherited his dad’s dry hair and scalp. It’s great to have a gentle conditioner that helps keep his scalp from getting flaky. It smells really great, too!
The other product we use really frequently is the natural baby calming lotion. The lotion comes out very runny, so I found it easiest to apply in small amounts. The upside is that it absorbs and dries much more quickly than you would expect for a runny lotion. Lavender oil and shea butter are both great for moisturizing skin and can help the healing process, so it’s wonderful for eczema. His skin stays soft longer than with some of the other products we have used and it smells amazing! All of the lavender in the bubble bath and lotion have also helped with soothing him to sleep.
We haven’t had any use for the natural diaper rash ointment… so happy we’re past that stage… but I have passed it on to a friend with a baby and I will try to update with new info once she’s tested it out. We have not yet used the natural baby oil for massage either, but what I sampled (on my hand for the photo above) was very light and worked easily into my skin. It was also very moisturizing. My hands were dried out from some housecleaning and the oil left them soft well into the next day. I just may have to use some of this stuff on myself!
Pros: NPA certified (learn more). Allergy tested. Gluten-free. Smells wonderful! Soothed irritated skin/eczema. Absorbed quickly.
