INGREDIENT ENCYCLOPEDIA

Calendula Extract

Baby’s skin is exceptionally sensitive and needs attentive care at this special stage of life. We have thus lovingly formulated products containing only gently effective, soothing, and nurturing ingredients of the highest quality, to provide your baby with the very best start in life. 

As the skin is our largest organ, and anything applied to it is easily absorbed into the bloodstream, we believe product ingredients should be safe enough to eat. We chose NOT to use ingredients known to cause skin irritation or that are suspected to be harmful. We believe the human body is an amazing gift. Caring for it with only the highest quality nutrients supports it to thrive at its greatest potential.

We use only raw organic cold­-pressed oils to ensure the high content of nutrients and antioxidants such as Vitamin A and E are not destroyed by heat or chemicals.

By sourcing sustainable, biodegradable and renewable ingredients and minimal, pre-recycled and recyclable carbon neutral packaging, we care for the environment as well as the skin.

ESSENTIAL OILS: 

First Light Baby wash, moisturiser, body and bath oil and powder are all free from essential oils so safe and beneficial to use from newborn all the way through childhood.  In the first six months it is best not to use strong-smelling products on your baby to ensure the bonding process between baby and parent, which is based a lot on smell, to develop. If you would like to add aromatherapy benefits after your baby is 6 months old, we recommend a drop of Baby Love by our parent company Synthesis Organics dilluted in 20ml or a tablespoon of these products. It can be especially lovely in baby massage or bath time. 

First Light Baby Wonder Balm, Rescue Gel and Bye Bye Bug Spray have infant safe dillutions of supportive essential oils. We recommend using these products from 6 months of age and up.
