The Importance of Choosing Organic Baby Skincare
Every parent should consider using organic baby skincare products to ensure the baby’s health and well-being.
Some parents, however, are not aware of the benefits of using organic baby skincare products on their babies.
The following are some of the most important reasons why every parent should highly consider using organic baby products.
1. A baby’s skin is more sensitive to harmful chemicals
According to data collected by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), babies are on average 10 times more vulnerable to carcinogens than grown-ups. Therefore, parents should only consider the mildest products and avoid these toxic ingredients generally used baby toiletries:
These are artificial preservatives included in skincare products. Parabens can trigger irritation and allergic reactions in the skin, especially to sensitive and damaged skin. They are also suggested to disrupt hormonal processes in the body.
Scientifically known as SLS, these constituents are set up in baby detergents and cleaners which are responsible for giving bubbles and froth. SLS and SLES have been associated with causing mild to moderate skin irritation and dryness.
The constituents are used to give colour to a certain product and have been known to cause hypersensitivity, asthma, and skin problems.
To take a firm stance against such ingredients, Buds Organics has been ECOCERT certified since 2008 and has gone through a safety assessment in the UK according to European Standards and we promise that we will never use:
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES), parabens, mineral oils, petrochemicals, artificial colours, artificial fragrances, animal derived ingredients, and other synthetic preservatives
Make sure to use gentle baby cleansers free from these nasties like our Buds Cherished Organics Precious Newborn Head to Toe Cleanser and Happy Baby Head to Toe Cleanser.
2. A baby’s skin needs hydration
Baby’s skin is very delicate and much more sensitive compared to adult skin; this results in skin drying out faster due to higher evaporation rate.
Using products chock-full of harmful chemicals defeat the purpose of keeping the skin properly hydrated. Rather, look for gentle, nourishing, organic ingredients that locks in moisture into the skin, keeping it soft and supple.
The next time you are shopping for baby toiletries, be on the lookout for our Buds Soothing Organics Deep Moisturising Cream, that provides continuous moisturisation to dry, sensitive and irritated skin while strengthening skin’s health with Prebiotic Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide, a part of our proprietary blend of clinically-proven plant actives called EASYclear™ + Prebiotic.
3. A baby’s bottom needs top rated ingredients
One of the newborn essentials is a nappy change cream, as keeping a babies bottom protected between each nappy change is vital to your little one’s comfort and happiness.
Organic ingredients such as Shea Butter, Jojoba, and Sunflower Oils all work together to create a protective barrier, combined with calming Bisabolol and antioxidant rich Vitamin E to soothe and protect your babies most sensitive area, all these ingredients can be found in our Buds Everyday Organics Nappy Time Change Cream.
