A guide to the best organic and all natural baby products including gentle baby skin care, diaper care, baby shampoo and natural baby bath products made with clean ingredients.
“It took having a precious, little baby of my own for me to start really paying attention to buying natural, non-toxic products.”
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that line.
There’s something about bringing a new life into the world that wakes you up to the potential hazards in the world around you.
Suddenly you become extra sensitive to every little thing in your new baby’s environment – from food and clothing, to items in your home, and even the air they breathe. The shampoos, creams and other baby care products you use on their little bodies are under scrutiny as well….and for good reason.
Why Natural Baby Products Matter
Pick up a personal care product off a store shelf, and it will very likely contain ingredients linked to hormone-disruption, allergies, or other negative health effects, including cancer. Why? Because current U.S. federal regulations are extremely limited, and untested ingredients are perfectly fine for companies to use.
It’s one thing to use these ingredients on our grown-up bodies, but another thing altogether for a baby. A baby’s tiny body does not detoxify as efficiently as an adult’s, so the same chemicals can have a more drastic effect on them.
You just don’t want to mess around with something like this on your baby. And why take the chance when plenty of chemical free, natural baby care products exist?
How to Find the Best Natural Baby Products
Speaking from experience, life with a newborn can be a pretty overwhelming time. As a new mom, you don’t have a lot of time for leisurely shopping.
Sure, you want to buy safe and healthy products for your home and baby – including things like an organic crib mattress and a non-toxic changing pad – but you don’t have time to visit specialty shops all over town. Nor do most of us have an unlimited budget to buy high-end lotions and potions for baby.
That’s why I put together this list of the best natural and organic baby product brands for you! For the most part, these baby care brands are very affordable and easy to find on your next trip for diapers and groceries.
Everything listed here meets the following criteria, which are especially important for babies:
- EWG’s Skin Deep rating of 1, or EWG Verified or certified USDA Organic
- Trusted certifications like EWG Verified, Made Safe Certified or USDA Organic (read more about certifications here)
- Fragrance-free or lightly scented with natural essential oils
- Made with natural and organic ingredients (synthetic preservatives may be necessary in some products for safety)
- No animal testing
