All-Natural Baby Lotion – Safe & Effective

As a new, first-time mom, I am paranoid about what my baby eats, drinks, wears, poops, does – basically everything! So, I was excited to find body lotion that includes only natural, organic, and plant-based ingredients. Did I mention it’s also vegan, gluten free, and cruelty free? It’s called Snuggly Lotion by Babytime.

It doesn’t have a harsh scent, isn’t greasy, and moisturizes as good, if not better than drug store products I’ve tried in the past. The moisturizing properties come from omega oils and cherry butter.

Not only is the product wonderful, but the company supports “green-values” that are upheld during the manufacturing process. All products are manufactured in U.S. facilities using solar power, and are packaged in recycled and sustainable material.

Babies with common skin conditions, like eczema, cradle cap, or general dermatitis are encouraged to try Snuggly Lotion. It is formulated with probiotics which supports skin immunity. The goal of this product is to provide a protective barrier to insulate vulnerable skin and keep out environmental contaminants.

I have been using Snuggly Lotion on my 11 month old daughter for about a month and have seen zero skin irritability, a decrease in dry/bumpy skin (especially on legs), and increased moisture. In the winter months especially, I recommend using it once a day, and slathering extra on your dry hands!

Unclog Pores with a Patent Pending Vitamin A by Osmosis

Take skin from bumpy and clogged to smooth and blemish free without irritation or dryness

Redness, dryness, and itching: it’s time to change the way you think about treating acne with retinol with Osmosis Pür Medical Skincare’s Clarify Vitamin A Blemish Serum (Gluten-Free, Vegan).

Ideal for all breakouts including blackheads, cystic acne and whiteheads, Clarify normalizes the body’s production of oil by shrinking the size of the pores: the source of oil secretion. Clarify, powerful yet gentle on the skin, removes the deadskin cells and clogged pores that cause acne. This hydrating and inflammation reducing formula is made possible with patent pending Liposome Delivered Retinaldehyde, the safest and least irritating form of Vitamin A on the market with the same effectiveness as Retin A.

By incorporating Retinaldehyde into a liposome, Clarify’s penetration is amplified (an important factor in the use of Retinols because of their size), achieving a research proven 600% increase in ingredient delivery. This allows the serum to reach deep down within your texture to promote cellular growth, restore the epidermal barrier, clear acne scarring and bring back dermal thickness. Further balancing your complexion, Clarify contains soothing botanical extracts and essentials oils like Basil Leaf, Rosemary, Tea Tree, White Grapefruit Peel Oil, Cucumber and Eucalyptus.

Star Ingredients:

  • Retinaldehyde (.05%) – Vitamin A, promotes cellular turnover, helps reduce the signs of aging.
  • Basil Extract (Basilicum) – Astringent to remove dirt and impurities while soothing with anti-inflammatory properties.
  • 1,3 Beta Glucan – Activates macrophage immune cells, protects and moisturizes, promotes healing through cell turnover, stimulates collagen synthesis and serves as an antioxidant.
  • Artemisia – Plant extract with antibacterial, antiseptic, astringent, antimicrobial, anti-fungal, and anti-oxidant properties.
  • Hyssopus – Herb providing antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant properties.

Directions: Shake lightly and spot-treat acne lesions daily for 4-8 weeks; then add 1-2 pumps to daily regimen morning and evening.
