There are lots of natural products out there vying for our attention. So why choose BALM! Baby? I’ve always felt like it’s the total package, so to speak. Malena, the creative force behind BALM! Baby, is heavily invested in the cloth community. She’s not just providing products, but has consistently offered support and encouragement over the years. Her products work, come packaged in really cool containers, and many contain locally-sourced ingredients from the Big Island in Hawaii.
There are other perks, too, like customized formulations if someone’s allergic or sensitive. And BALM! Baby goes green in other ways as well, with eco-friendly packaging, and shipping with recycled and/or plastic free supplies.
Along with my review of some products I recently won, BALM! Baby is sponsoring a giveaway to welcome spring. See details at the very bottom of this post!
BALM! Baby Herbal Dusting Powder (Talc Free)
Looking for an all-natural baby powder alternative? BALM! Baby delivers with a skin-soothing, gentle talc-free formula. Containing just fours simple ingredients (arrowroot, organic corn starch, kaolin clay and an herbal blend), this dusting powder will deodorize and soothe any part of baby’s body (or yours!) that you can want to keep fresh and dry.
Choose unscented or lavender. It’s only $11.99 for the can and makes a great baby shower gift!
BALM! Baby Butter Lotion
BALM’s Baby Butter contains nourishing oils from a Big Island organic farm. The consistency and fragrance are heavenly, and it goes on without a heavy or greasy feel. I like that it’s so versatile, too. With cocoa butter, shea butter, olive oil infused calendula & chamomile, Hawaiian coconut oil, Hawaiian macadamia nut oil, corn starch, and vitamin e T-50, it’s loaded with natural skin-calming elements.
I’ve been using it like crazy for the chapped cheeks, lips and hands that nearly everyone in the family has been battling this winter. We’ve been hard hit in the Midwest with severe storms and dry, frigid days.
Lots of options are available in this one: Unscented, Calming Lavender, Vanilla Grapefruit, Little Vanilla Bean, Candy Mint and Sweet Little Orange. It’s just $12.95 for four ounces.
I’m thrilled to have discovered Malena’s Eczema Calmer; it’s going to be stocked in my medicine cabinet from now on. Erik (my 6-year-old) gets itchy, red patches on his hands, his arms, and the backs of his legs. Eczema Calmer takes care of the itching and the redness within 24 hours, every single time. It contains extra virgin olive oil, organic, raw cocoa butter, calendula, chamomile, comfrey & rosemary, candelilla wax, chickweed, tocopherol ( vitamin e T-50) and retails for $11.99.
Available in lavender or unscented.
Spray that Bottom!
This is a nifty cleaning spray that you can use on wipes or directly on the skin. No fillers or unnecessary ingredients here – only the good stuff: witch hazel, extra virgin olive oil, neem oil, lavender, orange & tea tree essential oils & vitamin E. I love BALM’s light, pleasant-smelling formula. It’s cloth safe, but certainly not limited to cleaning and moisturizing a baby’s bottom. Try this natural, nourishing spray for cracked feet, sunburns, dry lips, diaper rash, razor burn, eczema, bug bites, newborns peeling skin, itchy cradle cap, postpartum discomfort, scrapes, cuts, bruises, hemorrhoids, dry hands, armpits, burns, etc. Just spray and leave on.
You can wash out and re-use the can for whatever you like. I put water in mine and spray the cats who like to jump on our screens. 😉
