5 Organic Brands For Baby That Won’t Disappoint

Parents only want the best and safest for their babies. But with the growing amount of baby products and brands in supermarkets or online, it’s getting a lot more challenging and confusing to choose which ones you should use on your little one.

A tip to narrow it down: whether it’s skincare, food, or clothing, using organic products is your best choice. Not only are they safer with less chemical and harmful components, they’re also friendly to the environment and overall, gentler for your baby.

Here are some organic brands you should check out to ensure you’re giving your child the best possible care.

#1 Cherub Rubs

If you’re looking for a brand that gets what mothers go through, Cherub Rubs may find a place in your home. What started as a mum’s quest for safe and naturally-derived products for her firstborn became Cherub Rubs. Founder Keeli Cambourne understood very well the danger that artificial ingredients can cause on baby’s skin so she took matters into her own hands—literally—and started researching and creating products that protect baby’s skin and cure common sensitivities such as itchiness, eczema, and rashes.

Cherub Rubs products are certified organic by the Organic Food Chain, an Australian Organic certification body, and certified toxic-free by Safe Cosmetics Australia. Some of the ingredients in its products include aloe vera, shea butter, centella extract, beeswax, and almond, coconut, lavender, and macadamia oils.

Cherub Rubs products are available at leading online and offline retailers and select paediatric and obstetric clinics.

#2 Aveeno

Babies have the most delicate skin so parents must be extra vigilant when it comes to using skincare products. Aveeno‘s consistent track record in providing products with gentle formulation is not to be dismissed. From its Baby Daily Moisture Range, which effectively soothes and protect newborns’ and babies’ sensitive skin, to its signature Aveeno Skin Relief range formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS Triple Oat Complex, mums are assured that their baby’s skin is nourished using only the most natural ingredients.

Aveeno as a brand is committed to using naturally active ingredients by implementing a rigorous scientific process before products are released to the market so parents all over the world can have peace of mind.

Products are available at leading online and offline retailers including Watsons, Guardian, NTUC FairPrice, Unity, Cold Storage, Redmart, Lazada, Qoo10, and Shopee.

#3 Kalila Organics

Using organic products on your baby is not only limited to what you apply on his skin, it could also extend to what he wears. Some clothes have been dyed with harmful and toxic chemicals which can affect the skin, and may be just as dangerous to the environment.

Kalila Organics’ clothes are designed with both your baby and the world in mind. Aside from selling pieces that are stylish and comfortable for your child, each item is also free of azo, formaldehyde, chlorine, and bleach. All clothes use 100% organic cotton so you are sure that it only contains natural fertilisers and no pesticides. Kalila Organics is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard and the Forest Stewardship Council.

One percent of each purchase is donated to help plant trees in partnership with non-profit organisation One Tree Planted. That’s another win for the environment!

#4 Bellamy’s Organic

With its mission of giving “a pure start to life,” Bellamy’s Organic makes it easier for you to choose only simple, nutritious, organic food. Its baby formula has no artificial preservatives, colours, flavours, synthetic pesticides, and genetically modified ingredients.

Its products—ranging from baby formula to cereal, snacks, and even pasta—use only premium and naturally derived ingredients such as organic cow milk and pesticide-free fruits, vegetables, and grains.
