01 Feb WHY WE USE LAVENDER AND CHAMOMILE IN OUR NATURAL BABY SKIN CARE PRODUCTS
We know our customers love that Bubba Organics uses only gentle, organic by nature ingredients to make our award-winning baby lotions and washes, but did you ever wonder why we chose those ingredients? When developing our pure and nourishing formulations, we carefully considered those herbs and oils found in nature that would help us create the best baby products for sensitive skin. Our Lavender and Chamomile range is one of our most popular. Read on to discover the benefits of Mother Nature’s two star performers which help make Bubba Organics one of the best baby bath products in Australia.
There’s no mistaking the fragrant smell of a lilac lavender bush and this gentle fragrance has made it a popular choice in skin care for many years, but there’s more to lavender than just its gorgeous aroma. Lavender oil, extracted from the flowers of the plant, has many well-known health benefits, too.
- Relieving stress and promoting sleep
The soothing fragrance of lavender has been shown to assist in the relief of stress and anxiety and this calming effect is also useful for promoting sleep. A lovely pre-bed bath using a pump or two of Lavender and Chamomile Baby Hair and Bath Wash can help soothe your bubba if they’re feeling a little restless or out of sorts. Follow up the bath with a gentle massage using the Lavender and Chamomile Baby Moisture Lotion (or the rich Baby Bottom Cream for skin that needs some extra TLC). This skin-to-skin contact is so reassuring to your little one and the gentle lavender scent is perfectly calming. And in addition to helping little ones relax and drift off, lavender has been shown to improve the quality of sleep, too.
- Anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties
Clinical studies also support what ancient natural medicine has known for centuries – lavender has the potential to soothe inflamed skin and create an effective barrier against some bacteria. Skin just loves lavender!
Chamomile is the common name for plants found in the Asteraceae family and the daisy-like flowers have been used as a medicinal herb dating back as far as Ancient Egypt. A popular herbal tea, chamomile also has beneficial applications when used in skincare.
- Anti-inflammatory and enriched with anti-oxidants
Active ingredients found in chamomile include the flavonoids apigenin, luteolin and quercetin as well as alpha-bisabolol and matricin. Together, these components give chamomile anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which nourish and soothe the skin.
When choosing natural baby skincare, there is nothing more important than avoiding known irritants and ingredients that commonly cause allergies. Chamomile is gentle and hypoallergenic which makes it appropriate for use on fragile, new skin.
