When applying creams and lotions, remember a few words from the wise: don't forget your neck!
Organic baby products are a dime a dozen these days. Everyone thinks they can cash in on mamas' desires to give their lil ones all natural products, but some just don't get the job done.
Discerning parents, like the celebs who frequent the ultraposh SoHo House private club and hotel in New York and London, have been treated to the luxe products created by the Cowshed spa for years. Now, ordinary moms (like us) can grease up our tots with the same organic goods. The company was kind enough to send me the line to test out. Baby Cow Organics is made from sustainable resources and uses 100 percent natural essential oils, such as lavender and meadowfoam. We checked out the Frothy Hair & Body Wash and the Full Body Cream and were impressed with both the sweet and subtle scents and the product's quick absorption. For mamas-to-be, the spa's Udderly Gorgeous line includes rich stretch mark balms and oils, in addition to body washes made from sea buckthorn oil, carotenes, and minerals all designed to relax and moisturize pregnant skin.
If your ankles are swollen and your partner won't rub them, pamper yourself with the heavenly scented On the Go prenatal foot and leg reviver tonic. It's part of Otopia's line of organic bath and beauty products
Dedicated to expectant and new moms as well as babies, the natural products are free from harmful chemicals and toxins. Choose between prenatal and post natal lotions, stretch mark creams, and massage oils. For lil ones, there are creams, washes, oils and powder.
And to get baby clean as a whistle, try Baby Soft top to toe hair and body wash. The tear free formula is also nut free due to allergic reactions some lil ones have.
Otopia supports local suppliers by purchasing their organic raw ingredients so you're going beyond buying bath gel and helping out small businesses.
