As a mom, I am always looking for healthy, safe, natural products to use on my little ones. With 3 very young children, I try to research the heck out of anything I put on their skin and in their bodies. I’m sure you’ve seen the news stories that have popped up within the last year about Johnson & Johnson having cancer causing chemicals in their products, and also Jessica Alba’s company Honest Baby and their mini-scandal of using a chemical in their products that they tell consumers to avoid!
With those being two top contenders in the baby care world, you may be wondering what other options are out there. I am really excited to share about my new favorite baby care line from Era Organics! I’ve always used natural skincare products on my children, but haven’t ever been blown away by the products I’ve used, so I thought I would take a break from our usual Babyganics and try something new for Peach’s sensitive skin. Queue a middle of the night nursing and Amazon perusal and Honeybuns baby wash showed up 2 days later on my doorstep. (Thank you Amazon Prime!) That night we gave it a test run for bath time and I was an immediate fan. The texture of the baby wash was concentrated, and a little went a really long way. The scent was calming and pleasant. I really dislike heavily scented skincare products (so I’ve never been able to stomach the scent of products like Burt’s Bees for babies). The scent of the Honeybuns wash is very mild, but appealing and calming.
I started talking with the folks at Era Organics because after trying out a lot of other brands like California Baby, Mustela, Babyganics, and Aveeno (which is owned by Johnson & Johnson!), I was so glad to be using a product that was natural AND effective, a combo really lacking in the natural product world. They informed me that they had just released an entire Honeybuns baby care line, and I knew I had to try the rest!
One of the great things about the Honeybuns line is that it cares not only for baby but for MAMA! YAY! It’s really telling when a company chooses to care for moms, too! Their baby and mama line includes Honeybuns Baby Body Wash, Healing Balm (incredible for dry skin and also works on cradle cap!), diaper balm, and Baby Powder (talc-free! Uses organic cornstarch and arrowroot as its base). The mommy components of the line are Mommy Balm for sore nursing breasts (I’m past the ouchie newborn latch stage, but I love this for when I am tender nursing during my period), and Belly Oil for stretch marks and dry irritated skin on your tummy and thighs– this stuff smells like HEAVEN, it’s like a mini-spa treatment every time i put it on! Each of the products are organic, cruelty-free, and non-GMO. There are NO PARABENS! This is a big deal to me, and the reason why I switched to all natural products as a new mother 4 years ago.
As I mentioned earlier, I feel like there’s a great divide between products that are natural and safe, and products that pack a powerful punch but are full of stuff I don’t want on my baby’s skin. You can tell that the formulas that Era Organics uses are thoughtful and science based, not just thrown together willy nilly. These products have made a difference on my skin and on Peach’s skin (and its been great on my toddler and preschooler’s skin, too!)
