When it comes to baby wash products, it’s vital that we choose safe skincare made with simple, natural ingredients. Sadly, the skincare industry is shockingly unregulated – which means that what you buy in stores may not be best for your baby.
So how do we find the best natural baby care products?
The right product for my family needs to check three boxes:
- Safe – zero toxic ingredients
- Effective – it does the job it’s meant to
- Affordable – for everyday families
And that’s not easy to find in Singapore!! I know :)
What is natural baby wash
The most important thing to remember is that our baby needs very little for their skin. They’re not jumping around in mud puddles (yet) – so when it comes to baby washes, you want something that is incredibly gentle.
A natural baby wash will have zero toxins that aggravate and irritate their delicate skin. Natural baby washes are formulated to be very gentle, with minimal ingredients that clean their skin without stripping it of its natural, protective oils.
Reasons for buying natural baby wash
It important to buy safe baby washes to reduce the chemical load in your baby’s developing system.
If you take a look at baby washes sold in stores – a lot of them might say “made with natural ingredients” or “gentle for baby” but when you turn the label around – the ingredient list tells a completely different story.
Common ingredients found in baby washes — like synthetic fragrance, preservatives, dyes and the chemicals which create those lovely bubbles — can irritate their delicate system and trigger allergies, skin issues and even affect their hormonal development.
What to look for in a natural baby wash
There is no legal definition for the word “natural.” so what we are looking for is a baby wash that has no toxic chemicals. It’s shocking and sad when you see just how many of our children’s products are loaded with toxic ingredients.
When you’re buying skincare, the best way to know for certain is to find a brand that has values that match your own. Read their website and look into their ingredients.
Through my own research, I do have a few recommendations for you:
Where to buy natural baby wash in Singapore
Human Nature is a natural skincare brand brought into Singapore by a mom frustrated with the lack of affordable options! The more I learn about this brand, the more I fall in love.
Human Nature’s natural baby wash is non-toxic, works beautifully, and at only $9.90 it’s an affordable option for families.
Their all-natural fragrances are naturally derived from essential oils and free from glycols and phthalates that conventional products use — this is the good stuff!
Human Nature also make pretty much everything else you need — from non-toxic toothpaste to shampoo. It’s a one-stop shop, which as a busy mom – I love!
