Best Clean Baby Products
In a world where profits are the ultimate goal, baby products aren’t spared from cheap, ineffective and potentially harmful ingredients. In fact, we found that the leading ingredients used in skincare products marketed to babies are Mineral oil, Petrolatum, Dimethicone, and synthetic fragrances. Most carry potential risks of hormonal disruption, cancer, irritation, or sensitivity. And for marketing purposes, some oatmeal or lavender extracts are thrown in… Sounds dramatic, but true – sadly!!
That’s why Vivaiodays brings so much joy to our hearts. Formulated by parents that wanted nothing but the best for their children, using high percentages of natural and organic formulas that are filled with nutrient-rich, anti-inflammatory and skin-loving ingredients such as Apricot, Jojoba & Olive Oils, Calendula and Turmeric. The COSMOS-ORGANIC Certification ensures they are free of fertilizers, GMO’s and other toxins. Scented without synthetic fragrances and allergy tested, packaged up in beautifully designed 100% recyclable tubes made with sugarcane pulp. What’s not to love!
Adults- don’t let the cute Owl, Giraffe or Octopus artwork deter you from using these perfectly balanced products which combine efficacy with quality and versatility. The Turmeric Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF30 has been a staple in my cabinet that’s stuffed with wrinkle-fighting skincare. My dry skin LOVES the Jojoba, Sunflower Seed Oil and Shea Butter. Non-Nano Zinc at 20% provides great sun-protection. If you’ve read our blog dedicated to sunscreens, you’d know that’s the best available sunscreen on the market, with the least potential side effects.
Also, in my mid-aged cabinet, you’d find the Olive Oil All Purpose Rescue Balm Gel, a multi-function product that’s not only an effective diaper rash and nipple balm, but a skin savior for all concerns. I’ve been coating chapped, rough areas this winter with this balm before bed. I’ve also reached for it when I tried joining the Tiktok trend called ‘Slugging.’ Shhhh…!!! Being a skincare nerd, there was no way that I would apply Vaseline, a Petrolatum- based product all over my face, so I applied a nice coat of my Favorite Loli Plum Elixir, and followed it with my Vivaiodays Olive Oil All Purpose Rescue Balm Gel, and tada!!!! Perfectly glowing ‘slugged’ skin and a promise of a good night sleep, without worry of waking up to giant zits. Thank you Vivaidays for creating this marvel – not sure what I’d do without it!!! I plan on continuing my slugging routine, which I do once a week, through the winter months, trapping in all the moisture I can manage.
