Class 1 Medical Device
As all parents know, babies often get red and irritated skin around the nappy area. This can be caused by either a reaction to urea, or by yeast. The introduction of a barrier cream could help soothe this. As a parent, the formulator knows just how careful all parents are as to what goes on their child's skin. That is why we list all ingredients on our website, not only the pretty ones. We hope you like what we made!
Even though the refined nut oils used in skin care do not contain the protein that cause allergic reactions, we made our baby balm nut oil free for peace of mind. Parents already have enough on their plates.

When we were told that we have to call our purified water “Aqua” we thought they were kidding. But we can’t fight bureaucracy. So we aren’t trying to be fancy, but we do need to call our water “Aqua” sometimes.
Zinc Oxide helps create a barrier between the skin and so protects it from Uric Acid in urine which can cause irritation and rash.
Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil
Sunflower Oil is rich in vitamins A, D, especially vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Sunflower oil has a light texture making it very comfortable on babies’ skin.
Cetearyl Alcohol (Plant Based Emulsifying Wax)
Creams are made from a mix of purified water and oils so as to be more moisturising than oil alone. To hold water and oils together, they need an emulsifying wax. We use a plant based wax that allows the water and oils to stay together.
Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil
Wonderfully healthy for the skin. So many benefits, it might be best to Google "Olive Oil Skin" instead.
Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil
Jojoba Oil is one of the most moisturising skin care oils around and is one of our all-time favourite moisturising oils. It is light and sinks into the skin easily. Curiously, Jojoba Oil is actually a liquid wax.
Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)
A rich moisturising butter which, in our opinion, is a great alternative to Lanolin.
Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil
This is exceptionally fine textured oil and has superb moisturising and emollient properties. It has been traditionally used to make an infusion for healing wounds but it is used in skincare for its ability to work wonders on dry aging skin. Evening primrose oil is exceptionally high in fatty acids, especially in gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and is one of our favourite moisturising and soothing oils.
Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E)
We use the more expensive, natural Vitamin E in our creams, not synthetic. Natural Vitamin E has up to twice the bioavailability of synthetic forms.
Polysorbate 60 (Food Grade Emulsifier)
We always choose the healthiest ingredients we can. Polysorbates are emulsifiers that are used in skin care and foods so we chose this to keep the oils and water together.
Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract
Calendula is well known for its healing and soothing qualities. We have infused Calendula within Sunflower Oil for babies.
Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract
Matricaria chamomilla extract contains active Flavonoid and Essential Oil compounds, which are particularly advantageous in the care of sensitive skin.
Comfrey Root has long been known as a healing plant. Allantoin was identified as the part of the plant that performed this function and it has since been synthesised to make it more concentrated and effective. So the allantoin we use is the pure ingredient. Allantoin has been termed a cell proliferant in texts such as the "United States Dispensatory". It is said to clean away dead tissue, hastening the growth of new healthy tissue. Allantoin has been also termed a counter irritant. Allantoin produces its desirable effects by promoting and speeding up the healthy, natural processes of the body. It helps the skin to help itself. It is also promoted as preventing lines and wrinkles by assisting skin repair.
Piroctone Olamine is an anti-yeast ingredient. Non-irritating, it also helps keep the cream free from bacteria and mould.
Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract
Cosmetic creams need to stay pure from bacteria. That is why ingredients like Parabens etc are used by a lot of companies. These work great at achieving their aim of stopping bacteria, but a lot of our “customers” are very young children. So we wanted something healthier. We worked for over a year to develop a preservation system based on Hops Extract. All our creams have now been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test. We are very proud that we are probably one of the first companies to develop this natural and healthy anti-bacterial system into our creams.
