I participated in Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Baby Mantra. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
I have always used natural skin care products on my daughters. I built up a stash of them before Zoë was even born. It turns out that was a very good choice because Zoë has extremely sensitive skin. If she is exposed to synthetic skin care products, she ends up with a rash over her entire body.
So, I’m very careful about the products we allow into our home. We recently received a package of products from Baby Mantra, which is a brand that was started by sisters that wanted to create a safe and eco-friendly skincare line. They strive to ensure all products are environmentally conscious in all aspects, from ingredients to packaging. Baby Mantra is a certified natural, cruelty-free and gluten-free baby skincare line that is made in the U.S.
So far, Zoë hasn’t had a reaction to the products we’ve tried. Overall, the ingredients look pretty good except for there is Benzyl Alcohol in the 3 in 1 body wash / shampoo / bubble bath, the newborn shampoo and body wash. The calming lotion lists “alcohol” so I have to assume it’s not benzyl alcohol.
If you’re wondering why I point this out, it’s because Benzyl Alcohol rates a 5 out of 10 in the EWG Skin Deep Database, so it’s on my avoid list. I would love to see them reformulate without benzyl alcohol as it’s really the only ingredient I spotted that is of great concern to me. Like I said, Zoë hasn’t reacted so far, so I’m hoping the concentration is low.
