You want the best for your baby’s delicate and sensitive skin. Harsh chemicals, lotions with artificial ingredients and mystery additives don’t pass the test of baby approved skincare. You need something gentle, nourishing, and effective. You need something natural, non toxic, and easy to use. This is why so many parents choose to use something like baby or vitamin E oil for their little one, but there’s an even better solution to the baby moisturizer conundrum: raw African Shea butter.

Raw African Shea butter is known for its very protective, moisturizing and skin strengthening properties, and it is these exact properties that make it perfect for Baby. Just as infants and little children need the proper nutrients to grow healthy and strong bodies, their skin also needs the proper building blocks in order to keep up with them! Unlike run-of-the-mill baby oil, it's loaded with skin cell building and protecting essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins that give your growing little one all they need for healthy skin, from head to toe.

Moisturizing the skin is especially important after bathing, as the soap strips some of the skin’s naturally protective outer layer. By using Shea butter on your child’s skin you are effectively, easily and safely helping to replace that thin outer barrier, which also contributes to happy and healthy skin cells. It can also be used as a safe and natural healing balm for scrapes, bruises, burns and scratches that happen on toddlers and younger children. It can be used alone, or mixed with other oils such as Coconut for an all purpose botanical baby balm.

Shea butter can also be used as a soothing and healing diaper rash cream because it contains naturally occurring antibacterial, anti inflammatory and healing compounds that work to resolve, soothe and clear up skin irritations such as diaper rash. It also makes the skin incredibly soft, and does not contain any additives or other substances that might further aggravate an already aggravating condition.

So now you have the truth: alone or mixed with your other favorite healing ingredients, this botanical wonder is perfect for little babies and children for everything from scrapes, bruises and burns to diaper rash and an after-bath moisturizer. It keeps the delicate skin of your baby soft and protected, and provides it with the dermal building blocks it needs to stay healthy now, and into the future as your child grows.
