Both my children have a very sensitive skin. My eldest used to have baby eczema. He’s fine now, because we made all the necessary changes what we had to, like switching to cloth nappies, to help his skin heal. I wrote about this already. Every time we try a different bath and body product, I have to make sure that they are gentle to their skin. Generally, natural products work for them the best, the less ingredients, the better.
We recently tested Linea Mamma Baby baby cosmetics, as they kindly sent us a lovely bundle. They are dermatologically tested, natural, free from parabens, dye and other nasty stuff. They are also cruelty free, so suitable for vegans too. The ingredients are coming from organic farming and the whole production cycle is based in Italy. They are natural and clean, so kind to the environment.
The products we have tested:
Doccia Shampoo And Shower Gel
Washing hair can be quite dramatic in our house. They just don’t like it. They are ok with shampooing their own head – that’s fun. The shampoo bottle has this little bear on it which worked well as distraction. But most importantly, it’s gentle and they had no reaction after using it. Well, that’s what I was expecting. It smells lovely, thanks to the olive and cardamom extracts. Babi still hasn’t cleared her cradle cap perfectly, so using it regularly should help.
Crema Pantenolo Nappy Cream
Babi gets nappy rash quite often, so we have a small stock of nappy creams at home. This one has got no petrolatum, but works with calendula and chamomile extracts from organic farming.
I was happy with this cream, worked effectively overnight. It claims to moisturise well, but apart from that, it also acts like a barrier cream, which if you already dealt with a bad nappy rash, you know that it’s important.
It’s a vegetable solid soap enriched with rice starch which is soothing and comforting for baby’s skin and it’s well known as a natural remedy. It didn’t make their skin feel dry, it felt nicely moisturised. I don’t use soap on their skin, because it it makes their skin dry and itchy, but this soap is ok to use on sensitive skin. Although, they preferred the bath with the bubbles.
These cosmetics are naturally suitable for any sensitive skin, not just baby skin.
Overall we were very happy with our bath time bundle. And there was a little surprise in the shampoo’s paper packaging: the inside of the box has a clever little feature. A colouring picture! What a brilliant idea to give the packaging an extra purpose.
Disclaimer: I was sent the Linea Mamma Baby bath products for review. This hasn’t influenced my opinion, I genuinely love them.
