Soothing, organic certified creams for newborn babies and kids with eczema-prone skin
Finding the right skincare for sensitive skin can be a tricky task – especially if you’re looking for products that are safe for newborns and kids with eczema. Babo Botanicals promises to offer professional hair, skin and sun care products (free of dairy, soy and gluten!) for extra sensitive skin, be it babies or adults. And to seal the deal, it’s all completely natural!
The hair, skin, and sun collections are made with colloidal oatmeal, which is well known to comfort itchy, dry, chafed skin associated with eczema. Organic calendula oil and shea butter moisturise skin and help relieve cradle cap. You can expect products that are free of parabens, phthalates, and artificial fragrances that bring quick results.
The Patented Nutri-Soothe Complex has proved its effectiveness time and time again – treating rashes, eczema and very dry skin with calming and soothing formulas. The certified organic nutri-soothe blend is rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants, combining chamomile, watercress, kudzu, and calendula. The huge variety of products within the brand are guaranteed to carry you through the winter, and there are lighter options perfect for our humid Hong Kong summers.
Our top two favourites are the Babo Miracle Cream, and the Babo Diaper Cream (both the scented and the unscented versions). The miracle cream caters to kids and parents alike. The light texture makes it quick to spread, whilst the concentrated formula ensures it’s easily absorbed into the skin. Gentle enough for your face, body and hands, the Miracle Cream’s botanical moisturisers work to smooth and comfort dry patches, eczema, irritated skin and diaper rashes. Plus, the colloidal oat and organic calendula soothes and relieves inflammation. The colloidal oat and organic calendula actually calms flare ups quick. It smells like milk and honey but still comes across as a delicate, organic fragrance. This cream is not only for kids, but great for adults too who have severe dry, sensitive skin. For extremely dry skin during winter, this cream works wonders – and it lasts throughout the day so you don’t have to worry about reapplying.
For new mamas, the diaper cream is a saviour. This soothing cream contains 25% non-nano zinc, forms a protective barrier and helps prevent redness, inflammation and diaper rash. Created with organic caldendula to soothe delicate skin and organic shea butter to calm irritation, it’s suitable for even the most sensitive. It consists of 25% zinc oxide (a particularly generous amount!), which effectively eases rashes, and provides a safe and successful alternative to steroids.
In fact, if you check out the EWG rating for Babo, it has one of the best safety and ingredient ratings for children. With nutri-soothe and extra colloidal oatmeal added in all products, you’re guaranteed to be applying only the purest ingredients on your little one’s skin.
