Born Free with Human Nature Baby Care

Babies are life’s miracles filled with innocence, love, and joy. But, do you know that some ingredients found in baby products and baby food have actually been linked to asthma, reproductive disorder and more? At this early point in a baby’s life, their immune systems are at their most vulnerable stage, so it’s important to know what you are feeding them and putting on their bodies. - Human Nature

Last month, Human Nature launched BORN FREE – a campaign that’s all about "setting your little ones on the path to a healthy life… making it right from the start." They have teamed up with Rustan’s Supermarket and Shopwise, and is supported by Mommy Mundo.

Human Nature Natural Baby Care line was formally introduced at the event with it's 3-step baby care system -- the first and only genuinely natural and affordable baby care products available for Filipino mothers everywhere.  Good news for us is that aside from direct selling channels, Human Nature products are now more accessible via retail exclusively in Rustan’s Supermarket and Shopwise.

During the program co-hosted by celebrity mom Danica Sotto-Pingris (above right), they discussed several natural baby care concerns with Dr. Cricket Palanca-Chen, a pediatric doctor who is also a certified naturopath/homeopath.  I missed taking a photo of her and taking down important notes during the free consultation. Bottom line is that we should all try to use chemical-free products for our babies, whether with food or skin care, for optimal health. 

HN president Anna Meloto-Wilk (below) was on hand to share their wonderful baby care line:

Step 1 – 99.3% Natural Baby Wash for Gentle Cleansing
Cleans your baby's skin and hair while nourishing it at the same time. Contains lavender, rosemary, and chamomile to help calm and soothe baby during bath time.

Step 2 – 100% Natural Baby Lotion to Moisturize & Nourish
Keep your baby’s skin from drying and be rash-free with 100% natural baby lotion made with avocado and sunflower oils, plus aloe vera to lock in moisture and provide skin nourishment. It's a fact that babies' skin dries faster so applying natural baby lotion is beneficial.

Step 3 – 100% Natural Baby Oil to Protect & Nurture
Studies have shown that premature or low birth weight babies massaged daily with sunflower oil are 41% less likely to develop infections. Made with pure, premium-grade sunflower oil to help heal, protect and nourish baby's skin. No mineral oil here!

My kids used the baby wash and lotion, and their Tangerine Tarsier shampoo. I, on the other hand, use this baby oil after every shower or bath since my skin has been extra dry lately. I found this to be very effective in giving me softer, moisturized skin -- no more dry, scaly skin. Seriously, this sunflower baby oil is great for adults' skin too! I love it!

For over a year now, we're happy Human Nature fans. I even included HN in my blog's year-end favorite finds here.

Among the few brands of personal care products that we have at home, Human Nature is one great brand that truly delivers it's promise of 100% free from harmful chemicals such as phthalates, sulfates, mineral oil and parabens -- perfect for the whole family, most especially for babies. And it's 100% Philippine-made!
