Finding all natural baby products that are gentle and nourishing is a growing concern for young families. But with so many products on the market and so many different ingredients listed in each, it can be difficult to know what you’re really getting. And to further complicate things, the same ingredient might be listed under a different name from product to product.

For example if it’s listed as aqua and marketed as purified or distilled, water is still water. And if it appears first or second in the list of ingredients, it makes up the majority of what’s in the bottle. But should water be the main ingredient in natural baby wash products and lotions? Let’s take a look.

Water vs Aloe vera

Water is the main ingredient in most skin care products for two key reasons; it’s excellent at mixing several ingredients together and it’s CHEAP. This is great news for the manufacturer, but is it what’s best for your family’s skin?

Water is often touted as the great hydrator and that’s certainly true – if you’re drinking it. But as a topical method to deliver moisture into the skin – and keep it there – it’s simply not effective. Though your skin is not completely waterproof, it is largely water resistant.

That’s where Aloe vera comes in. A succulent plant that grows wild in tropical climates, the leaves contain a rich gel which boasts over 75 different compounds including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and plant sterols. For centuries, the gel of the Aloe plant has been used for its natural healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
