They come with the territory of having a kid or two under your belt, and finding safe skin care these days can be so tricky. Not only are there so many choices, but because conscious moms have demanded safer ingredients, even the “safe” and “natural” skin care brand choice selections are daunting!
So here’s the deal. We want to look at labels – but not just the front of the label my friends. The ingredient list on the back of that label tells the story! Because all natural skin care is not all created equal.
When my friend Donielle from the Natural Fertility & Wellness blog told me she was going to launch an herbal skin care line for kids I nearly flipped! She is one of my go-to people to ask herbal questions, and I just knew this stuff was going to be good.
These ingredient labels on the Apothecary Kids products will knock your socks off – completely non toxic and super safe/allergen friendly.
I wanted to introduce you to the launching of the first in her herbal skincare line – be sure to check out the code at the bottom of this post to get a *free* herbal salve stick!
Now THIS! This is a diaper cream! Listen, I love my homemade tallow or lard for the occasional irritated bottom on my toddler, but let’s face it…that stuff gets rock hard in the fridge, and when you have a squirmy 1 or 2 year old they are not waiting for that stuff to melt very easily!
Donielle whips the J. Dubs Butt Butter so it is super easy to apply, the container can sit right next to your diapers, and it works great! Here is the ingredient list:
shea butter, cocoa butter, jojoba, apricot kernel oil, (all infused with lavender), candelilla wax, and vitamin E
It just so happened that the day I got our J. Dubs Butt Butter in the mail, my 2 year old was cutting a molar which meant she had a slightly red bottom poo that day. I put the butt butter on before bed and in the morning the redness was gone. Real ingredients work so great!
Confession. I rarely put make up on. I know, I know. Take care of yourself momma. Take some time for you in the morning. Sigh. I get that. I call it good if I can get a little mascara on. Michigan winters can be rough on the skin though, so having a little lip balm around is helpful.
And my kids get dry sometimes too – there is something about those school classrooms that is so drying! I like to have a small safe lip balm in my oldest’s backpack in case she feels dry. I love the simple ingredients in the Apothecary Kids Herbal Lip Balm:
almond oil, rosehip seed oil, extra virgin coconut oil, mango butter, shea butter, candelilla wax, beeswax, and vitamin E
These lip balms are pure as you can get, with no synthetic ingredients or preservatives, flavors, or scents.
There is also a tinted lip balm for the older girls and for momma! It isn’t overpowering in color, but gives a healthy light red sheen similar to a light lip gloss.
This is a game changer! I am completely in love and I don’t know that I will want a jar of herbal salve another day in my life! These herbal salve sticks are a great way to carry your herbs with you on the go, perfect for busy mommas!
The herbal salve stick is made with a blend of natural oils infused with herbs known for their skin soothing properties. Scented only with herbs (the lavender and cocoa butter really come through and smell fantastic), it’s easy to apply to chapped and irritated skin. Here are the ingredients:
Extra virgin olive oil, jojoba oil, extra virgin coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, candelilla wax, beeswax, and vitamin E. The oils are infused with plantain, comfrey, calendula, lavender, and echinecea.
The herbal salve stick is larger, 0.5 ounce stick in comparison with a typical 0.15 ounce lip balm stick you are used to – there is a lot of herbal salve in there! But it is also compact enough to stick neatly in your purse or diaper bag.
