Gifts for Mama- Babo Botanicals

babo Botanicals is a line of natural hair, scalp and skin solutions for babies and kids. Their products are created with the highest quality organic ingredients. They are sulfate free, paraben free, pthalate free and contain no icky chemicals, synthetic fragrances or colors. In addition all their products have been allergy tested and are safe for little eyes.

I know that from the time my little girl Penelope was born I have always been really cautious about the products I use on her. I try to keep away from harsh ingredients and because she has sensitive skin I avoid anything that is not hypoallergenic or that contains dyes and perfumes. I am always eager to try any new pure and natural bath products that I come across and so when I heard about babo Botanicals I had to check them out.

First of all the name babo comes from founder Kate Solomon's son. Babo is the name of her son's security bunny friend that comforts and soothes him. I thought this was very cute and also a very fitting name for these products.  The botanical ingredients in these products help to relax and calm little ones as well as help soothe any discomforts.

  • Lavender relaxes, soothes and facilitates more restful sleep

  • Calendula Oil is known to help soothe scalps with cradle cap or dry patches

  • Oatmeal helps comfort skin associate with eczema, dry patches or chafed skin

  • Soothing Organic Aloe Vera and Cucumber moisturize and comfort scalp and skin

  • babo Botanicals products also contain a Certified Organic Nutri-Soothe™ Blend rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants combines Chamomile, Watercress, Kudzu and Calendula.

    I was given a 3 in 1 bubble bath and shampoo and wash to try as well as a calming moisturizing lotion from their Lavender Meadowsweet collection.

    I do not typically like lavender scents, they are usually much too strong and floral for me but I was pleasantly surprised by how nice and subtle the lavender scent is in these products. It is not overwhelming at all. Penelope loves the way her new "soaps" smell. Like me Penelope already has a thing for bath products so she was very excited to receive these as well especially the 3 in 1 bubble bath. Bubble baths are a special treat for Penelope because many commercial children's bubble baths I have tried on her have irritated her skin and given her a rash. I was a little hesitant to try the 3 in 1 product as a bubble bath but I did and I am happy to say her skin was not bothered in the least bit. These are really wonderful, gentle products I definitely recommend them to all you moms with little ones.

    babo Botanicals also sells their products in several gift set forms which would make great gifts for a new mom or soon to be mom this Mother's Day. You can purchase online or at several retail locations.
