Green People Organic Babies Baby Salve review

Way back in November 2009, I discovered the Organic Babies range of products from Green People and reviewed (here) their baby wash/shampoo and nappy cream baby balm. This nappy cream and another of their products, their Baby Salve which they sent me to try out, have just gained official Fairtrade status from the Fairtrade Foundation. As Green People explain, this means that "parents really can naturally protect their baby's skin at the same time as helping to protect third world communities".

I wasn't entirely sure what a Baby Salve would be. A nappy rash cream ? Or a cream for dry irritated areas of skin ? Well, basically, yes to both of them. Containing a blend of Fairtrade certified Shea butter, Hemp, Calendula and Lavender, it is perfect for reducing inflammation, soothing soreness and offering water-resistant protection and healing for the nappy area.

But that's not all. The salve, which is rich in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids that are essential for healthy skin, can also be used as a nipple cream for breast-feeding mums. In fact, TIPS, who promote breastfeeding, recently awarded it the title of “Best Eco Friendly Breast Treatment 2011”, as chosen by midwives and mums. High praise indeed.

But that's still not all ! The website says that it is also suitable for adults who may be prone to eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. The fact that it is 97% organic, 100% vegetarian and 100% cruelty-free means that it is also 100% gentle on the most sensitive of skins.

As it can be used in such a variety of ways, this is one tube of cream that will be permanently in the changing bag and the first aid kit (it comes in small 30ml and 7ml tubes too) so that it's at hand whenever anyone, child or adult, has a rash or sore chapped or cracked skin.

star rating : 5/5

RRP : £9.70 for 100ml
