The gentlest ingredients for the most delicate skin
Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice
Just as the coconut palm tree is known as the Tree of Life, the mighty aloe vera plant is dubbed the Plant of Immortality. Ours is the highest quality aloe vera juice that comes from organically farmed plants selected for their incredibly soothing, softening and moisturising properties. We couldn’t think of a better partner for our premium organic coconut oil.
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil
Our very own premium quality, raw, virgin, certified organic coconut oil is the hero ingredient in our natural baby toiletries range. We love its gently nourishing, ultra moisturising, super soothing skincare powers – and we’ve packed our baby washes with as much of this wonder oil as scientifically possible (plus an extra spoonful for good luck).
Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate
This is our gentle, non-irritating, plant-based, biodegradable foamer that helps to make our lovely lather. Safe for sensitive skin, this clever ingredient comes from glutamic acid (an amino acid), lauric acid (an amazing fatty acid found in coconut oil and mother’s breast milk) and Sodium.
Vegetable Glycerin is a naturally derived ingredient created when saponifying vegetable oil to make soap. We use it to regulate the absorption and release of water in the skin, as well as for its lovely softening and smoothing properties.
Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate is a naturally derived ingredient made from the fatty acids found in coconut oil (swoon). It cleans the skin and hair by helping water to mix with oil and dirt so they can be easily rinsed away. As well as increasing foaming and helping to stabilise our bubbles, it benefits baby’s skin and hair by gently cleansing while leaving it beautifully soft and supple.
Xanthan Gum is a naturally derived, cream colored, odorless powder that comes from the fermentation of corn sugar. It’s used in a wide variety of personal care products and is very stable under a range of temperatures and pH levels. We use it as a stabiliser and emulsifier, as well as foam enhancer and thickener.
Our Sodium Chloride is a nature identical ingredient. Also known as table salt, we’ve added a pinch to our formulations to help thicken them up.
Hydroxyacetophenone is a multifunctional, nature identical ingredient with anti-oxidant, moisturising and soothing characteristics. It’s also an emulsion stabiliser and preservative booster, allowing us to use a lower level of preservative in our formulations.
The antimicrobial properties of Sodium Dehydroacetate have led to its widespread use in cosmetics and personal care products. It’s a gentle preservative that we use to prevent the growth of microorganisms in our baby wash and therefore protect against spoilage. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) permits Sodium Dehydroacetate to be used as a preservative for cut or peeled squash – which means it’s safe enough to eat! Sodium Dehydroacetate is also permitted by ECOCERT as a preservative in ecological and organic certified cosmetics.
(Not included in our fragrance-free baby wash)
Our signature coconutty scent is 100% natural, allergen-free and used in very low quantities to delicately fragrance our gentle baby wash. Simply delicious.
Citric Acid is naturally found in oranges, lemons and limes. We use it to balance the pH of our baby washes to make sure they’re at the perfect level for your little one’s delicate skin.
** (Vitamin E)
Tocopherol (Vitamin E) protects the skin from environmental pollution and is a brilliant moisturiser. It also contains a powerful anti-inflammatory action and acts as a natural preservative. In our formulations it plays a key role in helping to protect our coconut oil and make sure it retains all of its amazing skincare powers. We owe a lot to this vital vitamin.
When we use nature identical ingredients it is to ensure the utmost purity, consistency and efficacy in every single tube, for every single baby.
