What’s in it?
Organic Aloe Vera Gel & Extract
Is a natural plant product and one of the best moisturizers available. It is a natural scar inhibitor, cell growth stimulator, pain reliever, coagulating agent, antibiotic and anti-inflammatory. It can be used to treat many skin conditions such as burns, shingles, eczema, rashes and psoriasis and absorbs quickly into the skin.
Organic Safflower Oil
When topically applied to the skin, organic safflower oil functons as an emollient trapping moisture in your skin, keeping it hydrated and moisturised. It is naturally high in the Vitamin E antioxidant. A single spoon of safflower oils contains 4.6mg of Vitamin E. When used topically, Vitamin E has powerful effects on the skin. Safflower oil helps maintain the skin's outer protective layer, coating the skin and also enhancing its natural moisture barrier. This helps shield the environmental damage to your skin cells. Regular protection may reduce the risk of visible signs of skin damage like the creation of wrinkles.
Organic Calendula Co2 Extract

It has very powerful skin healing properties which makes is great for cracked skin, cracked nipples, burns, eczema, inflammations, stretch marks, nappy rash, grazes and wounds. It can also help old scars fade. It contains vitamins A, B, D and E and has outstanding wound healing benefits.
Is made from corn. This fermented byproduct of Xanthomonas Campestris yields a fibrous gel similar to cellulose. It is as natural as any other fermented corn sugar polysaccharide. The name is derived from the strain of bacteria used during the fermentation process, Xanthomonas campestris.
Organic Lavender Essential Oil
We love this oil so much it features in nearly all of our products. It is undoubtedly the most versatile essential oil and consists of a complex chemical structure. It is one of the few oils which can be used neat (undiluted) on the skin or in wounds. The detailed array of therapeutic properties of lavender are too vast to list here. Lavender is a very useful and safe essential oil to use for many of the minor upsets of babies; colic, nappy rash, teething, burns, rashes, infections, colds, irritability and sleeplessness. It is also very safe to use during pregnancy. Lavender is one of the three essential oils which most powerfully stimulate the growth of healthy new cells – Tea Tree and Neroli are the others. Lavender has numerous active constituents but above all, it is primarily the balancing and normalising action of the oil which makes it so beneficially versatile.
Organic Rose Geranium Essential Oil
Like virtually all of the flower oils, Geranium is anti-depressant and anti-septic. It promotes speedy healing, and can balance the production of sebum in your skin. It has a delightful perfume, and is a very useful insect repellent. Ancient civilisations regarded Geranium as a very powerful healer, and we do too, it can be used both as a stimulant or a sedative depending on other oils it is blended with and has a gorgeous floral scent.
Organic Chamomile Essential Oil
There are several varieties of chamomile essential oil and their properties overlap to a large extent. We choose to use both German and Roman Chamomile oils in our products as they are also very versatile oils and their properties often overlap with those of our much loved Lavender. Chamomile essential oil has a gorgeous and distinctive apple-like scent and is also very beneficial to use for most infant upsets. It is very soothing, calming and anti-inflammatory. It is particularly effective for internal inflammatory conditions such as colic and teething, and its analgesic action is perfect for dull aches and pains. Chamomile tea is widely known for its profoundly calming effect, and is invaluable for use nervous tension and anxiety. Chamomile is extremely valuable for treating skin conditions and allergies such as eczema, psoriasis and all rashes and dry itchy skin conditions. It is one of the most gentlest of oils and is particularly suitable for babies.
How to use it
We prefer to let little newborns adjust to their surroundings for a couple of weeks first. Then for a gentle and safe way to moisturize them – use our Aloe Vera Skin Gel. Many mositurizers will simply form a coating on the top of the skin, but this gel will soak right in and start healing deep down into the layers. Squirt small amount into palm of hand and spread evenly over skin, it will immediately penetrate the skin and not leave a sticky residue.
How does it smell?
We understand the scent of a product is very important, and although synthetic fragrances may smell good, they are not good for babies’ delicate skin. We like to use organic plant based fragrances in the form of essential oils safe to use for babies. This organic Aloe Vera Skin Gel contains a delightfully fresh aroma of Lavender and Rose Geranium which provide a lightly floral scent for use on all skin types.
