I've been a massive fan of Green People and their products for about ten years now. Not only for my children but also for myself (their lip crayons are the best). Whilst I tend to use a mix of products for my own skin I started using Green People on Wilf as a baby and have honestly never swayed. We use everything from their suncream to their shampoo and I know it's always going to be the best thing for my kiddos.
I'm really excited to be working with a brand that I love so much to celebrate their 20th anniversary! I think it's another testament to them that in such a competitive industry they have continued to grow and especially that they are so true to their voice and ethics.
The product I'm talking about today however is their 'BabySalve' from their organic baby range. It's a product thats been used by parents and midwives for years with dramatic results. I first noticed the product when a customer had posted a picture onto Green People's FB page of the difference it had made to her baby's skin issues. The picture showed a before and after within 72 hours to create a remarkable difference to his eczema condition. I'm not quite sure why it came up in my feed that day but I've since noticed a few pictures of the results from mothers claiming the same transformations, you can actually see some here.
Whilst neither of my children have luckily had any skin problems we have used it as treatment for nappy rash, something Wilf would get quite badly from time to time. I tend to keep one at home and then carry a travel size one in my bag, I use it as lip balm quite often but I've recently used it on my skin at night when it was feeling particularly dry. It's really like a multi purpose balm that can be used for just about anything!
I know that when it comes to things I use on my kids skin I'm really fussy. Babies and children have much more sensitive skin than adults and as such absorb so much more of the nasties that are in everyday products. It's a subject I've become wiser to over the years and try to educate myself on as best as I can. I'm still learning though! I've actually just discovered how stripping SLS is to my hair and am totally changing up the products I use the contain these. Funny enough it was using the kids shampoo when I had ran out of my own that prompted me to look a little further into the subject. Although that's a whole different conversation to be had I suppose!
