My daughter has quite a severe skin reaction to any products that contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) which, for us, cuts out most standard bath and baby products. As a result we spent much of the first months of her life testing new and different product ranges and the best we have found for our needs is without doubt the Organic Babies/Children range from Green People.
Over the summer we used the SPF25 sun lotion which we loved, but for the past year our favourite product has been their Nappy Cream Baby Balm. It has a list of fairly traded organic natural products, and none of the hard to pronounce nasties. Although for sore bottoms, it can also be used on minor cuts and scrapes as it contains the healing herb Calendula.
The nappy cream is quite thick, but spreads easily. A little goes a long way, and the smell is fantastically fresh and floral with a touch of Camomile – and comes from the natural ingredients, rather than added chemicals. I was never unhappy with the commonly available nappy rash products, but since having tried this one, would not go back.
As to its effectiveness, it exceeded my expectations – it works super fast, soothing and removing the redness and rash, and cuts and scrapes heal quickly too.
The 40ml container has an airtight seal so there are no leaks or popped-off lids in the nappy bag.
Green People have great customer service too. Not only are their sales team efficient, but you can have an easy chat with them on Twitter (@greenpeopleUK) – my kind of customer service!
At £9.25 the Green People Nappy Cream Baby Balm is quite a bit more expensive than conventional, mainstream alternatives, but as I’ve said, I feel it is entirely worth it and is certainly what we are and will be using in the future.
