WIN skin soothing lotion for your baby!

Many readers will know that I am a big advocate of all things natural (such as cloth nappies instead of chemical-filled disposables, and organic skincare). So it was a real treat to roadtest some products from Natural & Baby Concepts.
Created by Olivia Chan, her products contain more than 75 per cent certified organic ingredients, no genetically modified ingredients or petrochemicals, making it one of the “greenest” skincare and mineral make-up ranges in Australia.
The Baby Concepts skin soothing lotion was formulated with premature babies in mind, with a very subtle scent and gentle enough for delicate skin. It’s was a bonus to discover that 20 cents from every bottle sold goes to the Bonnie Babes Foundation.
When applied I found it to be non-greasy, absorbed well, and has minimal scent. It would be fine to use after bath time for a gentle baby massage and sensitive enough to use on eczema, rashes or other irritations.
Calendula is chosen as the main oil in the baby range range due to its anti-inflammatory and gentle properties, which is wonderful for rashes, eczema and sensitive skins.
The Room & Linen Spray is a really pleasant spray for use on linen, in the car, or around the room. The scent is not overpowering, and it won’t stain your clothes or linen.
The 2-in-1 gentle hair and body wash was designed for dry and sensitive skin. It includes lavender oil, making it ideal for baby’s bath before bedtime. It's silky texture does not lather very well, but this is indicative of natural products – more bubbles equals more chemicals.
The Barrier Balm includes some really yummy ingredients including macadamia oil, shea butter and calendula, all of which work very well at healing and soothing sore bottoms, insect bites or other irritations. It is quite creamy and also has minimal scent.
