“Mom” recently had the distinct pleasure of being introduced to Melvita, the #1 organic-certified beauty brand from France. This lovely collection of organic products for both mothers and their babies is specifically formulated to be hypoallergenic, alcohol-free and oil-free – perfect for cleansing, soothing and protecting even the most sensitive skin.
Tested by pediatricians and dermatologists, Melvita has created a full line for baby which includes: Shampoo Shower, Cleansing Milk, Moisturizing Milk, Changing Cream, Cleansing Water, Massage Oil, Nappy Change Milk, and Cold Cream Soap.
“Mom” especially found the Cleansing Water to be a unique concept – this refreshing water for babies can be applied with a cotton pad or washable wipe, and leaves tender skin clean and smelling sweetly without having to immerse your little one in water. Perfect for times when you need to clean up baby quickly, especially while on-the-go! Another favorite is the Massage Oil, which contains Calendula, Argan and Carrot Oils. This light, relaxing oil glides on without feeling greasy and is wonderfully soothing to baby.
For mothers, Melvita offers 3 fabulous products: Stretch Mark Prevention, Body Milk, and Nipple Balm. The Nipple Balm is both food-based and organic, and does not need to be washed off before breastfeeding baby, as it is safe for ingestion. (a BIG improvement over petroleum-based products!)
This organic line makes a wonderful baby shower gift for both the mama-to-be and her eagerly awaited child. To learn more about Melvita, or to order their organic products for baby & mum, please visit their website.
Melvita offers skin, hair and personal care for the whole family as well as nutritional supplements and its own line of organic honey, that retail between $3 and $56. Founded in the Ardèche, France by beekeeper and biologist Bernard Chevilliat in 1983, Melvita (meaning “honey and life” in Latin) has always been a passionate advocate for the complete organic lifestyle. Each of Melvita’s products carries the prestigious ECOCERT certification, certifying its products are organic and ecological, including packaging and company practices.
