Balmonds make extra gentle skincare for baby, pregnancy, and the postpartum period. Their products are suitable both for sensitive skin in pregnancy, and for the delicate skin of babies (from six weeks). They provide nourishing, hydrating alternatives to products made with synthetic ingredients, so you can be confident your little one’s skin only gets treated with the pure ingredients it deserves.
For the 1 in 5 children with eczema, finding skincare that works without stinging is really hard. And that’s exactly how Balmonds started, with a traditional oil and beeswax ointment made by a mum to soothe her little one’s sensitive, eczema-prone skin. The range is fast becoming an essential for all families interested in natural skincare.
Balmonds community manager & antenatal teacher, Lucy Gulland, says:
“Less is more as far as babies are concerned! Pick products that leave out the perfumes, harsh preservatives, sulphates and petrochemicals, and stick to simple, gentle formulations that won’t irritate such sensitive skin.”
Balmonds Skin Salvation (£7.99 for 30ml)
A rich, award-winning salve made with beeswax and hemp, this miracle pot for the whole family can be used to soothe baby bottoms, dribble rash and dry, itchy patches of skin. Unlike most children’s moisturisers on the market, it contains no preservatives, no fragrance, no petrochemicals, no paraffin, no parabens.
Balmonds Natural Shampoo & Body Wash (£19.00 for 200ml) with honeysuckle, sweet basil and lemongrass, is an extra-gentle unperfumed, soap-free hair and body wash for bath time.
Balmonds Bath & Body Oil (£12.99 for 200ml) a 100% natural blend of botanicals, including hemp, lavender and chamomile, which can be added to the bath to counteract the drying effects of warm water, or used afterwards on towel-dried skin to seal in moisture. It can also be applied to cradle cap and left overnight, or used as a soothing baby massage oil.
Balmonds Daily Moisturising Cream ( £13.99 for 100ml) a lovely soft everyday cream made with hemp and shea to lock in moisture and soothe itchy skin throughout the day.
For Pregnancy & Postnatally
Balmonds Rosehip Scar Oil (£18.99 for 50ml) rich in regenerative rosehip and formulated with calendula, palmarosa, lavender and chamomile, this blend is a great all-purpose conditioning oil to improve the appearance of C-section scars and stretch marks, to use as a perineal massage oil, or as a facial oil to even out skin tone or pregnancy-related melasma. In Caesarean Awareness Month, it’s worth singing the praises of rosehip oil as a gentle, effective way of caring for your body and helping it heal.
Balmonds Cooling Cream ( £19.00 for 100ml) with deliciously cool menthol, soothing aloe vera juice and calming lavender essential oil, this lotion dials down the heat, moisturising depleted skin whilst providing some welcome relief from elevated pregnancy temperatures.
