Back in 2000, Jannine Barron had a vision. She wanted to create a range of baby products. But not just any baby products. She wanted beautiful, affordable skincare that was at least 95% certified organic, and preferably 100%.
We wouldn’t expect anything less from Jannine. She founded Nature’s Child in her kitchen in Byron Bay back in 2000, and has been a forerunner in Australian eco baby products ever since.
I used the and loved the Nature’s Child bottom balm on my youngest, who is now 10 years old, and have been selling it at Hello Charlie for at least 10 years.
So I’m super excited to share my review of the newest additions to the Nature’s Child range.
What’s Great About Nature’s Child Skincare
Jannine envisaged a beautiful, natural, certified organic range, and that’s exactly what they are. There’s one product that’s 95% certified organic, and the rest are 99 to 100% organic. I challenge you to find a purer range of baby products anywhere in the world!
As a parent, you realise that the decisions you make every day impact your child’s future and the world we live in. So all the Nature’s Child skincare products are made with biodegradable ingredients. They’re all packaged in recycled materials, so you can reuse them or recycle them again.
The entire skincare range is certified organic by Australian Certified Organic (ACO). And they’re all made in Australia, in a certified organic processing facility on the Gold Coast.
There’s even more reasons to love Nature’s Child:
- ACO certified organic and natural
- preservative free
- fair trade sourced ingredients
- Australian made
- cruelty free and vegan
- gluten free
- no synthetic fragrances
- only gentle essential oils that are suitable for the youngest of babies
No wonder the Nature’s Child Baby range was a finalist in the 2016 Australian Organic Awards!
My Favorite Nature’s Child Skincare Products
These two are among our top selling products.
Both balms are made with the same ingredients. But not everyone wants bottom balm sitting on their bathroom counter!
Bottom Balm is made specifically for nappy rash and other things that can cause itching and dryness for babies. It is moisturizing and calming to soothe irritation.
It’s a bestseller at Hello Charlie, and our most popular Nature’s Child product.
Wonder Balm is another Hello Charlie bestseller. Use it for just about anything! I’ve always got a jar floating around at home. It soothes scratches, rashes, bumps, cuts, dryness, sores, cradle cap and any other skin irritation. It’s safe to use anywhere on your body, and it’s great for the whole family.
Ingredients in Bottom Balm and Wonder Balm: Sunflower oil, sweet almond oil, olive oil, calendula, comfrey, tocopheryl (natural vitamin E) and Certified Organic lavender essential oil.
You only need the tiniest amount of this in the palm of your hand. It’s incredibly gentle, leaving skin soft and smooth and beautifully clean. It’s perfect for even the tiniest of babies, as there are no preservatives at all.
Nature’s Child sources the ingredients through fair trade from island communities in the South Pacific. It helps support sustainable, long term farming and community development.
Ingredients: Certified Organic coconut oil, Certified Organic olive saponified oil, purified water, guar gum and xanthan gum.
Talc isn’t great for babies. But baby powder is. You need one that’s made with better ingredients, and this is it. Use it after bath time or when you’re changing a nappy to help absorb excess moisture.
It’s great in hot weather to prevent chafing, too, and not just for babies. The hint of lavender gives a fresh and calming scent without overwhelming.
Ingredients: Certified Organic tapioca starch, kaolin (Australian white clay) and Certified Organic lavender essential oil.
Baby massage helps both babies and parents relax and bond. Many healthcare professionals recommend massage as part of a natural postpartum routine. Made with simple ingredients that are rich in vitamin E, potassium and zinc, and ideal for delicate skin.
Ingredients: Sunflower oil, sweet almond oil, tocopheryl (natural vitamin E) and Certified Organic lavender essential oil.
