After the domination of Johnson & Johnson baby products on the shelves of supermarkets and high street chemists it is exciting to see the gentle breeze of change with natural kids skincare ranges taking their pride of place on the shelves. The powerful benefit is that you don’t have to spend a fortune in order to give your child’s skin the best start in life, caring for it gently and lovingly with the products that don’t contain harsh chemicals that will aggravate the skin and the latest news that Boots and Waitrose, following in the footsteps of John Lewis are now stocking Childs Farm products will cheer up CF existing fans and will hopefully give the brand a wider reaching exposure.
Childs Farm is a British brand that is dermatalogically, as well as pediatrician approved and the team creates natural toiletries that will work even on sensitive, as well as eczema prone skin. Launching Childs Farm on Boots shelves ( bigger branches for now ) also coincided with the brand launching three new products: 3 in 1 Swim, Bubble Bath and Hair Detangler.
3 in 1 swim: whether you have a baby or a child of school age you must be familiar with swimming pools most of which come filled with the chlorinated water than not only doesn’t smell that great but is also quite harsh on children’s much more delicate than adult skin. This newly launched all -in-one shampoo, conditioner and body wash contains strawberry, as well as organic mint and will help you wash away the chlorine, while leaving the skin soft and the hair shiny. Instead of adding bulk to the already significant bag or rucksack laden with swimming paraphilia you just pop in one lovely apple green bottle in and it will help your child smell as children should -of natural freshness and sunny childhood happiness.
p.s I recently came across Ecotools bath sponge that does a great job at cleaning the skin, giving it a gently natural buff, as well as a being ‘mock toy ball’ during bath time.
Hair Detangler: if you child has naturally curly hair you probably don’t anticipate hair-washing and view it more as a ‘it must be done’ rather than ‘this is going to be a wonderful time with my kid’ but this hair detangler was developed to work on ‘flowing locks’ in particular, probably keeping in mind that after a restful night sleep your curly treasure looks more like curly sheep than a sleek pony. Shake the bottle, spray it on your child’s hair, paying particular attention to the tangles and gently comb through ( Childs Farm hair brush often gets poached by me to brush my tresses and encourage the gentle hair shine, without irritating the scalp ), repeating as required.This is definitely one of the products ( it contains uplifting grapefruit and rosemary extracts and organic tea tree leaf oil ) that will simplify your morning routine, as well as deter head lice, which seem to be a regular point of conversation for mums on a school run.
Bubble Bath: even though I am not a huge fan of daily luxurious baths myself, there is nothing better than to end a day with the warm bubbly water that melts the tension and days worries away and washes away sweat and frustration of the day. This foaming bubble bath smells zesty due to tangerine orange and lifts the spirits, so it’s not just the little ninjas that enjoy its benefits but tired mothers as well. Truth be told that is one of the most endearing qualities that attracts me to Childs Farm – not only the products are developed taking into account the fact that children’s skin is different to ours but they would be happily shared in your household. Another benefit is that with their very accessible price point it has a luxurious feel without making one bulk at the cost. On many occasions I not only recommend those products but give them as birthday gifts and get countless compliments with mothers unanimously saying how much their children love using the products.
Looking after oneself is not a luxury, it’s a must and a human right and instilling good hygiene habits in our children-first giving them baths when they are babies, letting them relax and enjoy the bonding time safely held in the parent’s loving hands and later giving them the products that will care for their skin and appeal to their ‘coolness’ and ‘goodness’ factor with the fruity smells and happy vibes, will hopefully leads to a happier and healthier members of the household all together. And that is one very precious gift that is so easily bestowed and hopefully will be supported by more and more retailers !
Child Farm products don’t contain parabens, SLSs, mineral oils or artificial colours
All three latest additions to Childs Farm range feature characters from the Childs Farm cartoon which will launch this summer on the Cartoonito
