Bathing & Organic Skin Care

Organic Skin Care Products

DandleLION Medical partnered with Best Ever Baby, and President Kim Walls, to develop a line of skin care products that are safe and healthy for all babies.  The industry-leading formulas, made from 70% or more organic ingredients, are free from all toxins, proteins, artificial ingredients, artificial fragrances, dyes, parabens, phthalates, paraffin, silicone, lanolin, chemicals or pesticides. All products are clinically tested, non-allergenic, and top rated by the Environmental Working Group for safety. Each ingredient was chosen for its benefits to the skin.

Healthcare professionals have the opportunity to model healthy and safe product choices. Give the babies in your care the best start possible!

Why Organic Skin Care Products?

Skin is the largest organ of the human body and plays a role in protection against water loss, absorption of noxious substances and intrusion from micro-organisms.  The skin of all newborns, and especially preterm infants, is thinner and has fewer protective layers, making it more susceptible to infection and irritation.  Using products made with healthy and organic ingredients is important because the skin can absorb much of what it comes into contact with very quickly  When the skin is think or injured, absorption is increased making babies especially vulnerable.

Many companies use the label “natural” and “hypoallergenic” but beware!  These terms are not regulated by the FDA and a product or food label with the claim of natural can mean most anything.  Truth-In-Marketing rules for food don’t apply in the cosmetics world.

As a NNP and a consumer, I was shocked to learn that some infant skincare products traditionally used in the hospital are far from gentle or pure. We have a responsibility to our patients and their families to be informed about unsafe, chemical-laden products and to champion safer alternatives.
