Perfect for mother & baby massage (and for sensitive adults alike) this Naked Baby Balm contains only all-natural, moisturising, healing, plant-derived ingredients and has no added scent whatsoever (that’s right; no petroleum, harsh chemicals, preservatives or any other added extras).
Only the purest, most gentle and cleverly-soothing botanicals should go near a baby’s skin (which is only about half the thickness of an adult’s, making things extra sensitive). And for those of us who like things to be simple, regardless of mother/baby status, this jar of goodness sinks in so beautifully it may be your new go-to moisture balm.
A translucent balm, it looks a bit like petroleum jelly but is far more skin-friendly and nutrient rich. Being so natural, please bear in mind that the organic and unrefined coconut & cocoa butters in this product may form tiny crystals if exposed to strong changes in temperature during transit. This doesn’t affect the quality of the product even remotely, and any possible crystals will melt away upon rubbing into your skin. Simply warm it in your palms first, then apply.
‘The Baby Balm is amazing, so pure and I feel happy putting it on his skin even though I’ve not done any other product before. [My boyfriend] had also used it on his eczema and it’s the only thing that doesn’t irritate it – believe me, he has tried dozens of products in the past.’
