There is no more important time to be conscious of what ingredients are in your skin care products than when you have a new baby. This is also the time when it might seem hard to avoid the dreaded plastic.
So at Make it Wild we have put together a cute gift set for baby, with a little treat for mummy (or daddy) too.
Everything is plastic free and eco-friendly. It all comes in a hand made cotton bag which will be useful to keep baby’s bits and bobs together when travelling, or in the nursery.
The Baby Balm is vegan, organic, and completely natural. It is never tested on animals and contains no nasty ingredients, and is based on coconut oil and shea butter; it’s fragrance free to avoid upsetting baby’s sensitive skin. It is made with care by a small scale producer. With every sale, 10p is donated to the Marine Conservation Society. It is ideal to put on baby’s bottom or any dry patches, and is a caring, moisturising product.
We have included a child sized set of bamboo cutlery for when baby starts to eat solids – or fling them around the place. These are eco-friendly, sustainably produced and washable. They can go in the dish washer, but we cannot guarantee how they would survive being sterilized, so you might want to save them until baby’s first birthday. When you have finished with them, they can go on your compost heap where they will safely biodegrade.
Also in the set is a child sized soft bristled bamboo toothbrush. Billions of toothbrushes are thrown away every day, and many of them end up in the ocean. Why not start reducing baby’s impact on the planet early, with a compostable toothbrush.
As a little treat for the new parent, we have included a hand made totally natural soap in a choice of fragrances. Relaxing Lavender or invigorating Sweet Orange. This is made with care by a small producer based just down the road from us. And finally to keep your toes warm during those disturbed nights, we include a pair of cashmere blend socks.
