Caring for Baby’s Tender Skin the Natural Way – A Guide

As a parent, you want nothing but the best for your little one, especially when it comes to caring for their delicate skin. The skin of a baby is not fully developed and is more sensitive than an adult’s skin, which means it needs extra care and attention.

Many commercial baby products contain harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances that can irritate and dry out a baby’s skin. That’s why natural and organic products are a better choice for your baby’s tender skin.

Faithful to Nature offers a range of kids’ personal care products that you can use for bath time, baby massages, nappy changes or as sunscreen. We have a wide selection of wonderful chemical-free options that have been thoroughly checked and vetted against our strict no-nasties ingredient policy, making it easy to find natural products from the start of your child’s journey into the world. Here are some of our natural baby skin care favourites:

Natural bath-time bonding
Bath time is an essential part of a baby’s daily routine, and a great way to bond with your little one. It is important to choose effective but gentle products that won’t strip away their skin’s natural oils, making for a gentle & fun bath time experience.

We love organic-certified Pure Beginnings Kids Fun Time Bubble Bath, which is made with organic Aloe Vera, including Baobab Fruit extracts as well as Orange and Ylang Ylang essential oils. It is gentle and non-toxic, leaving your baby’s skin feeling soft and nourished.

Another great option for washing your baby’s skin and hair is the Pure Beginnings Soothing Baby Wash & Shampoo, which is formulated with organic Baobab extract and Aloe Vera, both of which help to soothe and hydrate the skin. We also like Oh-Lief Natural Olive Baby Shampoo & Wash, formulated from Olive Oil and natural Clay, with a light scent of Roman Chamomile, which has anti-allergenic and relaxant properties.

For super sensitive skin, we like Pure Beginnings Probiotic Baby – Sensitive Cream Wash, containing prebiotic and probiotic ingredients to aid the skin’s natural microbiome balance. It gently cleanses baby’s skin without stripping or causing any irritation, and is also great for parents with eczema, who struggle with conventional baby products.

Safe sunscreens
It’s never too early to start protecting your baby’s delicate skin from the sun’s harmful rays. However, many commercial sunscreens contain chemical ingredients that can be harmful to baby’s skin & the environment. Instead, protect your baby’s skin the natural way with FtN’s range of natural and organic mineral sunscreens that are safe for babies.

Try Oh-Lief Natural Olive Baby Balm, which contains cold-pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, cold-pressed Grapeseed Oil, Beeswax and Lavender Oil. It’s a great massage wax that helps with moisturising, soothing insect bites, shielding sunburn and easing cradle cap, while it is also brilliant for fighting eczema.

For a more family-friendly option, you can go for the Oh-Lief Natural Body Sunscreen SPF30 for protection from UVA and UVB rays. It creates a physical “sun-blocking” barrier, protecting skin without absorbing into the bloodstream.

Best for Baby Massage
Baby massage is a wonderful way to bond with your little one and promote relaxation or sleep. However, it is important to use natural, gentle products for baby massage, to avoid irritating or harming baby’s delicate skin.

The Pure Beginnings Soothing Baby Massage and Bath Oil is great for pampering your little one’s super sensitive skin and contains several moisturising and calming oils to protect and nurture your baby’s delicate skin. It is perfect for that after-bath bonding massage that your baby will love you for.

Soothing Nappy Changes
Nappy changes are an inevitable part of caring for your baby boy or girl, and it is important to use natural and gentle products to avoid any irritation or discomfort. In addition, conventional disposable nappies often contain plastics & petroleum-based ingredients, which are bad for the environment. If you’re looking for more sustainable options, browse FtN’s Reusable Nappies or Eco-friendly Disposable Nappies.

Wipes are another must-have for soothing nappy changes. As a more environmentally-friendly option, we like Oh-lief Biodegradable Bamboo Baby Wipes – their gentle ingredients help care for baby’s sensitive skin while the biodegradable Bamboo fibres are more sustainable vs. conventional polyester wet wipes. Use with the Oh-Lief Natural Olive Bum Balm, for natural protection against nappy rash.

Another biodegradable wipe option, made with pure organic Bamboo fibre, is Pure Beginnings Gentle Baby Wipes with Organic Aloe. They’re also infused with organic Aloe Vera, to nourish and care for your baby’s skin. To keep your bambino’s tooshie dry and rash-free, it’s best to use these baby wipes with the Pure Beginnings Baby Bum Cream with Organic Baobab, which is made from certified-organic ingredients.

Caring for Mom’s Skin
The skin is an organ that can absorb outside chemicals and substances into the bloodstream. This means that anything you put on your skin can potentially penetrate into your body and, if you are pregnant, affect the health of your baby. FtN has some wonderful safe, natural skin care options for moms-to-be, like Oh-Lief Natural Olive Pregnancy Balm and Mom Bod Skin Stretch Serum.

Whether you’re looking for gentle bath products, soothing skincare, or safe and sustainable essentials, FtN has you covered. By choosing from our carefully vetted & selected lineup of baby care products, you’re taking care of baby’s skin, while also taking care of the environment. Embrace the beauty of nature and nurture your baby with products that are truly Faithful to Nature.
