When caring for your baby’s skin, it can be hard to know where to start and what baby skincare to use. Choosing products that will work for your family can be tough! It should be simpler than having to navigate an ingredient list filled with 7 syllable chemical names that are impossible to pronounce. Here at Wotnot, it only takes three words (and 7 syllables in total) to get excited when talking about baby care — natural baby products!
Why Consider Organic and Natural Baby Skincare?
We believe that taking care of a newborn with natural and organic baby skincare is the best step to set your little one up for a healthy and happy life. This is exactly why we’ve been working tirelessly, with our community of mums, to develop our new unique baby skincare range. This range will allow you to care for your baby in a natural and nourishing way extending to Nappy Rash Cream, Baby Shampoo, Baby Wash & Bubble Bath and Baby Lotion as well as our best-selling 100% Natural Baby Wipes and Natural Sunscreen.
Why is using organic and natural baby products so important? Baby’s skin differs from ours as it is thinner and more delicate. With delicate skin comes sensitivity which can make skin more irritated by allergens and conventional baby products. This is because they include those pesky chemicals such as methylparaben, ethylparaben, benzyl alcohol or even sodium benzoate (which is shown to increase the risk of inflammation, ADHD and even allergies — ouch!).
So, when bath time comes around you want natural baby products that will not only be gentle on your bubs skin, but also contain soothing, therapeutic ingredients like colloidal oatmeal, to ensure their gentle skin is both clean and nourished.
The Benefits of Natural Baby Products & SkincareWe could talk all day about the benefits of natural and organic baby skincare, especially when it comes to baby products that actually nourish your baby’s skin. To keep it simple for you, we’ve chosen three major benefits that will make you confident in switching to natural baby products for bath time and baby skincare.
Free from toxins, fillers & synthetic fragrances
As natural baby products have no nasties, fragrances or preservatives they are perfect for sensitive skin. If your little one has experienced a reaction to preservatives in food or in other baby products (like parabens and sodium benzoate) it might be time to make the switch to test if natural baby skincare has a positive impact on your baby’s health.
Gentle on baby skin
Being gentle on the skin ensures that your baby can be relaxed at bath time. Preparing a bath with the ideal temperature and providing the perfect bath time routine is only the beginning. If the products you are using aren’t gentle on the skin then your little one can become uncomfortable and irritable at bath time or later into the night.
Certified organic aloe vera & 2% colloidal oatmeal
With Wotnot’s range of natural baby skincare containing certified organic aloe vera as the primary ingredient (instead of water like most baby products), you know that your little one is getting the best antibacterial properties from this wondrous ingredient. Aloe vera can also aid in wound healing, improving overall skin health and helping soothe any other rashes or skin conditions that might flare up on your baby’s skin.
The inclusion of 2% colloidal oatmeal in our natural baby products hasn’t happened by accident. Colloidal oatmeal helps to bind your little one's skin and lock in moisture whilst also helping to soothe and soften the skin through its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s pretty much a wonder ingredient that uses natural properties to help relieve itchy, dry or irritated skin for your bub!

Natural Baby Soap & Bubble Bath
When bathing your bubba it is important to choose a product with a natural baby soap or foamer. Made from mostly edible ingredients (how good!) our Baby Wash and Bubble Bath contains certified organic aloe vera as the main ingredient and 2% colloidal oatmeal to soothe and nourish during bath time. Our Natural Baby Wash & Bubble Bath is a top to toe option for newborns, from the tips of their toes to the top of their head. As your baby’s hair grows and thickens we also have a separate Natural Baby Shampoo with a luxuriously mild hair softener. It’s safe to say this is the best natural baby soap you’ll find for newborns.
