“A new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities”. Eda J. Le Shan
With this New Baby soap you couldn’t have asked for a milder, more nourishing bar to wash your worries away, and soothe and support your baby’s body. This gently-cleansing and extra-conditioning soap comes in various shapes – butterfly, crown, dinosaur, train, to name but a few. Bath time has to be fun, so should skin care be. As the little creamy bubbles kiss your baby’s bum (or your face!), it feels like a fairytale, except the magic never goes away once playtime is over – the skin feels soft, smooth, soothed and silky afterwards.
Before finalising the recipe for this soap, I spent a very long time researching, experimenting and fine-tuning the formula as well as the actual process. The result is “baby soap”, not “baby cleanser” or “wash”. The latter are “tear-free” products, but in order to be such, they have to be made from non-soap surfactants, which, unfortunately, are derived from petroleum :( However mild these petrochemicals might be, they remain what they are – petrochemicals – synthetics that are harmful for human health and the planet! It makes complete sense to use natural gentle soap on your baby’s body and keep it away from their eyes to have peace of mind…
What makes New Baby soap so amazing for their skin is that it contains no harsh, artificial ingredients, such as preservatives or fragrances. Instead, it’s packed full of the highest quality (edible!) oils and butters, that have been used for centuries to moisturise and protect the skin by feeding it vital fatty and amino acids, vitamins A, B, D, E and K, minerals and anti-oxidants. I generously added all of them in the best proportion possible to achieve the soap I cannot wait to use on my own babies!
