The World of Baby Products

All parents want the best for their baby and will do everything in their power to assure they are safe and healthy. How does as parent know what is safe when there is an assumption that any product on the shelf has been regulated as safe to be there? It is still a shock for most people that there is no regulation for the manufacture of any skincare products in Australia, whether they are cheap or expensive. It is especially assumed that big brand names “must” be the best!

Did you know that many of these well known branded baby products on the market contain ingredients derived from petrochemicals, palm oil and other harmful toxins? Plus, the ingredients, production and packaging of some of these items may be compromising the very planet they will one day inherit.

InnerOrigin carefully selects baby care products that are made from simple, natural ingredients, safe for baby and mum, 100% free from any untraceable palm oil, and produced and packaged responsibly. This is why we love our Nature’s Child product range, which are just the simple things parents use every day in the purest form possible.

Why Nature’s Child?

Nature’s Child baby products set the standard with their Zero Waste, Zero Harm philosophy. As we show you below, they factor in every element of production from their Australian Made, Certified Organic Ingredients to the 100% recyclable packaging. Our products include bottom balm, wonder balm, talc free baby powder, baby massage oil, baby wash and reusable baby and face wipes. The Organic nipple balm is the least expensive and most certified product available in Australia and it compliments their reusable breast pads made from organic cotton for a new mum in 3 different sizes.

Why The Nature’s Child range is particularly special:

Palm Oil Free

100% free of untraceable palm oil. The palm oil and logging industries in Malaysia and Indonesia are sending orangutans and tigers to extinction, and subjecting them to horrific cruelty along the way. Palm oil is a hidden ingredient in many baby products. It is disguised under the name Glycerine, Emulsifying Wax, Stearic Acid, Polyglyceryl Dipolyhydroxystearate, Caprylic Triglyceride and Cetyl Alcohol among many others, and even if it is certified Cruelty Free, Organic or Vegan, this is no indicator of it being palm free.

So we are very passionate to share with you that the Nature’s Child range is 100% free of palm oil and palm oil derived ingredients. Being palm oil free, Nature’s Child products are not only helping you and your bub, but the environment that they will one day inherit too.

Zero-Waste

Nature’s Child products are focused on reusability, such as reusable face wipes and breast pads which can be washed and used over and over again. Reusing products will not only mean less ends up in landfill, but it also helps you save money that would otherwise be spent on disposables. At the end of their life, products such as the organic cotton face wipes and breast pads can be composted, while the jars and containers can be reused or recycled.

Australian Certified Organic

All Nature’s Child products are Certified Organic to Australian standards. That means no chemicals, toxins or unnatural production methods leeching into the ingredients. Nature’s Child were the first baby brand to be Certified Organic in Australia back in 2000 and remain the most recognised Certified Organic baby brand in Australia to date. Their independently audited Organic Certification is your guarantee of their purity and honesty in their claims.

Australian Made and Owned

Nature’s Child was born in the beachside town of Byron Bay in July 2000. As an Australian-owned business with Australian-made products, buying Nature’s Child means you’re supporting local businesses, suppliers and producers.

This is also good for the environment as all products have a lower-carbon footprint: less travel between the producer and consumer means less carbon emissions and a happier environment for your child to explore.

Natural, Toxin Free, Petrochemical Free Ingredients

Nature’s Child products contain just simple, natural ingredients, that are biodegradable and safe for both baby and child. Unlike many mainstream baby products, you will not find any toxins or petrochemicals in Nature’s Child.

Gluten Free

If you have a gluten allergy or intolerance, gluten products may cause problems if absorbed or inadvertently digested into the body. With gluten-free baby products, you avoid this possibility for both you and your baby.

Organic Baby Powder

Nature’s Child organic baby powder is free from talc* and synthetic ingredients making it a much safer baby powder to use on your baby’s bottom. Use it to prevent chafing, rashes, and soothe irritation with added lavender oil.

*Talc is the softest mineral on earth so was traditionally valued as a body powder  but talc deposits are often found near asbestos.  Until recently nearly all baby powder was made from talc and may have been contaminated with asbestos, leading to three U.S. jury verdicts linking regular use of J&J talcum powder to ovarian cancer. TALC is banned in all powders but you still need to watch out for other cheap ingredients that some brands use and label natural.

Organic Baby Wash

Newborn babies should not be bathed or washed every day. Their natural skin oils should be allowed to moisturize and clean their own skin as we welcome them to the world. Instead, wipe them down with one of our gentle, organic cotton baby wipes.  We recommend bathing newborns only every few days. Once your baby has hair when they are older, this can also be used as an organic hair and body wash has no harsh detergents or chemicals, it is formulated to moisturise the skin and support its natural oils with 4 simple ingredients. Organic Olive Oil and Coconut Oil are the bulk of this product.
