Glam and Green - Baby Products

Glam and Green Products for the Little One

With a few friends having just had babies, or about to have a baby, I was inspired to write a post on some natural and organic products that could be used on babies. Imagine being able to use products that have zero chemicals or nasty ingredients on your child's precious skin? It is possible!
Before I introduce you to some great products - click here to read about Tasha Sach's from Mioja (review) ,journey of raising her children using natural products and immersing them in the beauty of what the world has to offer, naturally.
Thank you Tasha - what an interesting read!
And now, some information on baby products:
SOil Organics:
Baby blend, 100ml, R85
"Research has shown that baby massage promotes growth and development in premature babies and has many benefits for babies and parents in general. Enjoy a bonding experience with your baby using this relaxing and soothing massage oil. This gentle blend of chamomile, Lavender and olive oil will help keep your baby’s skin moisturised and can also help relax colicky babies. As for all of our products, this massage oil contains no petrochemical ingredients/mineral oil."
I truly believe in the calming and healing power of Lavender, so this is a great bed time product to use on the little one as a massage oil or even for bath time.

Stretch Mark Oil, 100ml, R85
"A nourishing blend of Rose Hip seed oil, rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins, Tangerine and Lavender to keep the skin soft and supple while preventing and treating scarring. This product is not exclusive to use during pregnancy, but it is particularly suitable."
 A divine product to treat yourself with that smells delightful - great to use before and after pregnancy. *confession* If you're like me, and have stunning stretch marks *sarcasm* even though you are not a mother , I highly suggest this product for you as well.

Naturals Beauty
A bit of information about the R&R range - "Ruben is a little boy whose body is very sensitive to toxins and toxin build up. Rebekah is a baby whose skin is sensitive to synthetic fragrances and other nasties! Their mommy has created this range for them and for kids just like them"
