Bath time is more than just a nightly scrub and clean. It is a time to explore some of the wonderful products out there for our kids. We can’t help but indulge ourselves in the absolutely heavenly scents that bubble in the bath and linger on their skin long after bath time has finished.
Aside from this luxury, we need to find products that are not only friendly to our children’s skin, but protect and moisturise night after night. As the market is flooded, and not always with the nicest products, we’ve rounded up our pick of the best baby and kids bath wash products.
Coconutty goodness! This luxurious range is suitable for sensitive newborn skin and contains coconut oil, which is a natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antioxidant. This product not only looks AMAZING on the shelf (or floor, or amongst the bath toys…), but smells heavenly. Accompanying the coconut oil, you’ll find aloe vera juice, avocado oil, evening primrose oil, olive leaf extract, calendula extract, chamomile, lavender and rosehip. And yes, there’s an adult version.
Coconut Baby Wash and Shampoo (RRP $26.95)
All about kids, Jack n’ Jill started off as a kids toothpaste manufacturer and have been working out of Australia ever since. They believe in being kind to the environment, so they only use organic ingredients and have minimal packaging that is BPA free and recyclable. Their Shampoo & Body Wash comes in three ranges including Simplicity, Sweetness and Serenity. Anything that promotes a serene bedtime gets my attention, and the calming native Australian white cyprus extract, Australian lavender oil, clary sage oil and chamomile ingredients win me out every time. Whilst bedtime is anything but serene, I’d hate to imagine what it’d be like without Serenity.
