Vegan skin care for babies

April 16, 2016

It can be tricky to find a skin care brand that you trust, especially when the products are for your baby. It can get be even more of a challenge if you're following a vegan lifestyle and want to pass your way of life on to your child from day one. 

So where can you find vegan-friendly skin care solutions for babies? Why right here of course! Here are two of our favourite products to get you started:

Let's begin with our vegan nipple balm. Although this soothing salve for cracked nipples is for mamas, you'll be pleased to know that the healing blend of oils and moisturising Shea Butter is free from animal derived ingredients. Let us get down to the details. Traditional nipple balms are made with lanolin (a fatty substance collected from sheep's wool) and may also include animal byproducts like honey and milk, making them unsuitable for vegans. Using our protective nipple balm as an alternative to lanolin nipple creams means your little one won't  ingest any lanolin residues that may remain on your skin when breastfeeding. You get all of the benefits with none of the nasties.

Next up is our Shea Butter Soap. This natural, unscented, moisturising baby soap is handmade with ethically sourced Virgin Shea Butter and Fairtrade Oils to enrich and protect a baby's delicate skin. It's also free from animal products, such as tallow, lard and suet, that are used in lots of common soaps. Instead it combines Shea Butter (a natural fat derived from the nut of the African Karite tree), Cocoa Butter, Sunflower Oil and Jojoba Oil to create a light textured cleanser with a gentle effect on even the most delicate of skins.

All Shea Mooti products are also free from parabens, mineral oil, SLS and synthetic colours and fragrances! Order today and join our revolution against chemical nasties and animal products.
