BYBI & Babies: Pregnancy safe products you can use on your baby too
BYBI and babies, not an obvious pairing but it turns out they’re a match made in gentle heaven. Whether you have a baby, are having a baby or are indeed a baby, we have the natural products you need.
Getting pregnant is a lot of things: brilliant, exciting, overwhelming, scary and confusing. You have all of the important things on your mind and then when you think you’ve finally got it all worked out, you have to go through your beauty stash and check that your products are pregnancy safe. Essential oils? See ya. Retinol. Nope. Thank God for bakuchiol then, a game-changing, natural retinol alternative that has all the same benefits but is pregnancy safe and doesn’t have any of the negative side effects associated with retinol, like photosensitivity and extreme flakiness. Bakuchiol Booster stimulates collagen production & increases cellular turnover whilst you get some well-deserved shut-eye. The result? Smooth, glowing skin, improved textured, reduced fine lines and a complexion that looks like you got 8 hours sleep even if you didn’t.
Congratulations! The baby is here! They’re happy, healthy and ridiculously cute but alas, they’ve got dry, flaky patches! Nothing to worry about, it’s perfectly normal for bambinos to have skin a little on the dry side. Time to reach for the baby oil - if only there was a natural & nourishing baby oil that also doubled up as a mum’s make-up remover? Enter Swipe Clean. Made without essential oils & fragrance free, Swipe Clean is thick, a little bit luxurious and contains antibacterial oils that can help alleviate irritation caused by dry skin. An occlusive oil blend, Swipe Clean helps to quite literally lock in moisture in your baby’s skin and helps to prevent trans epidermal water loss. Using a generous amount of product, simply give baby a lil pamper sesh & massage after their bath for soft, soothed skin. As it’s essential oil & nut oil free, Swipe Clean is a great cleanser for nursing mothers.
Another dry skin hero is our OG Babe Balm, the clue is quite literally in the name. A multi-purpose, vegan beauty balm that can be used anywhere, Babe Balm is full to the brim with natural ingredients that heal, repair and nourish dry, irritated skin. According to @theearthlingsociety ‘BYBI’s Babe Balm has nearly completely cleared up my 1 year old’s eczema 😯 Go ahead and add that to the list of things that this amazing product can do!“ Emollient ingredients shea butter and vegan fruit wax soften chapped, rough areas of skin and form a protective barrier to lock in moisture whilst calming calendula and no essential oils makes it incredibly soothing on sensitive skin. One for the mama’s too, because of its soothing & repairing properties Babe Balm works incredibly well as a nipple cream for breastfeeding mums. Got stretch marks? Who hasn’t. Coenzyme Q10 and hibiscus oil, both rich in antioxidants, work together to help repair damaged skin and prevent stretch marks.
Missing the pregnancy glow? Just when you thought you had grown out of hormonal skin, you pop out a baby and a whole host of skin concerns crop up and you’ve got to go back to the skincare drawing board. For many new mums, much like their babies, skin can become dry, flaky and dull. If this sounds familiar, reach for the pink bottle, AKA Strawberry Booster. Made with 100% cold-pressed strawberry seed oil that’s GREAT for dry, flaky or irritated skin. Silky yet nourishing in texture, it absorbs quickly to boost moisture levels and soften sensitive skin. For BYBI Customer & new mum Jennifer H, is her go to: “Omg! Let’s just say since after having my son my skin was so dry, but thanks to BYBI Strawberry Booster my skin is just better than it’s ever been. I apply it in the morning mixed in with my moisturiser and on a night just a few drops directly to the face, in the morning my face is so soft and ready for my makeup which now goes on a dream no more CAKEY! FLAKEY! foundation which is amazing!” Strawberry Booster is essential oil & fragrance free so if you think your baby is in the market for a skin softener too, go right ahead.
