    Primal baby care products

    Shop Now
    My babe is due to arrive in 2 months and I want to make sure I have baby care products ready by the time he arrives. I want to avoid commercial baby products as they contain parabens, fragrances and waht not. Are there any natural, chemical-free baby products - soaps, shampoos, detergents, lotions etc. - that you would recommend? Any 'recipes' for home-made alternatives to these products? I plan on using coconut oil for moisturizing.

    Have you looked at Dr. Bronner's baby and sensitive skin care line? Here's the ingredient list from his mild baby soap:
    Water, Organic Coconut Oil*, Potassium Hydroxide**, Organic Olive Oil*, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Citric Acid, Tocopherol

    * CERTIFIED FAIR TRADE INGREDIENTS
    ** None remains after saponifying oils into soap and glycerin

    I would *not* use Dr. Bronners on a baby. It's *so* drying.

    Valid point cillakat. Dr. Bronner's also makes a body soap for babies with shikakai powder. I've never tried it, but it's supposedly more moisturizing. We will be having our second child in about 6 weeks, so I'm interested in any ideas myself.

    California Baby - very mild and unscented.

    I would check any products on costmeticsdatabase.com, which is an awesome resource.

    *Shrug* I make my own soap from lard, olive oil & coconut oil so when I have a baby I'll probably use that when necessary.

    I love Vermont Soap Organics. http://www.vermontsoap.com/barsoaps.shtml They have an aloe baby soap. I've never tried that (no reason to...), but all of their other soaps are wonderful! I have really sensitive skin and I never find it drying.
