can I give my baby a made-in-India chemical-free product??
When my new-born toiletries had to be purchased,my husband knowing of my ‘Made in India’ madness brought me a gift pack of Himalaya Babycare. I was actually very happy. Its herbal too. I never wanted the traditional Johnsons & Johnsons (Though I love their smell). it was too much chemicals for my baby to handle I thought. Himalaya massage oil, bubble soap, shampoo, diaper cream, powder everything suited my baby pretty well. ‘Any cream is too much chemicals’ my 1 year old mommy cousin told me and I happily used the baby cream on my face 😉
When my baby had the usual baby rash – milia, I was worried though I needn’t be.
Then one day I saw a paraben-free Himalaya shampoo I checked the other products, and I was surprised to find the rest of them hoarded with chemicals.
It struck me HERBAL PRODUCTS NEED NOT BE PARABEN FREE. I hurriedly checked the baby product ingredients and was shocked to see they are NOT PARABEN FREE. I felt seriously let down by Himalaya Baby Care.
I mean if you can thinking of giving a shampoo paraben free, what about the gentle baby care??!
I quickly browsed through and settled down to Chicoo and Pigeon which do have natural ingredients and are paraben free, but hell yeah not chemical free.
I was still happy with the Himalaya powder which seems chemical free and actually helped me overcome mild-severe diaper rashes.
And then as I was searching for chemical free products, I came accross the Miss B page on Biotique .. Ah Someone Who thinks like me and actually did something about it and its BIG!
India or Bharat has ancient wisdom which is wasted because its too tedious .. Well better say We have become lazy!! Biotique tries its hand in capturing that ancient wisdom in packaged bottles and have to say it does the job pretty well. Not once did their products broke me out .. They either work or don’t!!
So my baby’s products will be from Baby Biotique.. – Made in India and I so love their smell 🙂 and their products ..
