As you probably know by now I have quite sensitive skin and this has been passed onto my poor son Logan. I'm always on the look out for different products to keep his skin soft and healthy so when the very kind bunch from Green People asked if Logan would like to try out their Lavender Bath & Shower Gel and Baby Salve I couldn't refuse.
A little bit about Green People first of all: "Green People is a forward-thinking company which specialises in organic body care products. With an extensive range of natural products – shampoos, face creams, sun lotions and body washes to name just a few – it is one of the biggest names in organic beauty in the UK. However, it started from very simple roots: the seeking of a mother to help her young daughter. Back in 1994, 2-year-old Sandra was suffering from eczema and severe allergies and just couldn’t stop scratching herself. With much determination, her mother, Charlotte Vøhtz, decided to get to the bottom of the problem. She discovered that many of Sandra’s skin allergies were being triggered by chemical-based household and personal care products. When these were removed – and with the help of a herbal cleansing tonic and a balanced Omega 3 & 6 intake – Sandra’s skin began to clear up."
This natural body wash is made without SLS/SLES, Parabens, phthalates and artificial fragrances and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. This product also contains fairly traded ingredients and even the packaging can be recycled. All very green and friendly. You can purchase the Lavender Bath & Shower Gel for RRP £7.75 for 200ml from Green People.
The Baby Salve is just as good and even more nourishing for the skin. It can be used all over the body to help soothe sore dry and irritated skin. Mums can even use it as a Nipple Cream when breastfeeding so perfect as a 2 in 1 product. This stuff really was brilliant for Logan, he gets some dry skin on his back where his nappy rubs a little and this has really helped to keep that area moisturised. I've also used it on the rest of his body and on his bottom when it's been sore and it's worked a treat. I would say that the baby salve is a little oily but most salves are to be honest.
Overall two brilliant products which are excellent for sensitive and dry skin. They've really helped my son so I can’t fault them. They do lean towards the more expensive side of children's products however since I have tested them out and know they work well for Logan I would more than likely purchase them in future.
