We’re already fans of the Burt’s Bees brand for taking care of our own chapped lips or dry hands. But the beeswax-loving natural brand also has a full line of fab products for babies, like their SPF Baby Bee Sunscreen Stick. Sensitive baby skin is in that much more need of protection from sun, and this formula delivers with powerful Titanium Dioxide & Zinc Oxide. It’s also non-greasy and free of harmful chemicals and irritating fragrances; $10, BurtsBees.com.
Take the gentle approach to baby care with safe, soothing products from Noodle & Boo. Each one has passed stringent clinical and dermatological tests to ensure they’re mild enough for daily use on even the most sensitive skin. Check out their French Milled Baby Soap, made with pure vegetable oil, oatmeal and aloe, or their Ultimate Cleansing Cloths, which use an alcohol-free, ultra-mild formula of aloe, chamomile and Vitamin E to soothe and hydrate skin; NoodleAndBoo.com.
The secret to Aden & Anais’s lovely Mum + Bub is a juicy one: fresh, fermented pawpaw fruit, known for cleansing and protecting skin while offering soothing relief. Created with help from a top New York dermatologist, the line is free of a whole range of nasties — from artificial colors to gluten and soy. A top pick? Their All-Natural Hair & Body Wash for both babies and moms, infused with pawpaw and a light scent of sandalwood; $16, AdenAndAnais.com.
It’s no news that Kiehls has been making lusciously luxurious bath, body & skin products since our grandparents were in diapers. And of course, today’s babies hardly need to be left out. Their Nuturing Baby Cream For Face & Body combines shea butter, honey and apricot kernel oil to leave tender skin smooth. It’s even gentle enough for babies’ sensitive faces. The lightly fragranced formula has been thoroughly tested to minimize allergy risks; $19, Kiehls.com.
