Endorsed by Beauty Without Cruelty South Africa, Pure Beginnings Baby and Children’s products combine certified organic and native fair trade African ingredients that have been ethically sourced from Fair Trade Initiatives in Sub-Saharan Africa, with traditional herb botanicals. The products are also accredited by Phytotrade Africa¹, a non-profit trade association whose purpose is to alleviate poverty and protect biodiversity in the region by developing an industry that is not only economically successful but also ethical and sustainable.

The Pure Beginnings product range comprises:

Baby Bum Cream with Baobab – £10.15/125ml – an effective daily barrier cream with natural anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. Made with baobab fruit extract² and tea tree leaf oil, it can be used to treat nappy rash³, relieve sores, stings and bites, and is also ideal for anyone suffering from eczema or sensitive skin conditions.

Baby Wash & Shampoo with Baobab– £8.15/200ml – a rosemary and geranium scented all-in-one baby wash and shampoo with baobab fruit extract, that is effective on cradle cap.

Baby Body Lotion with Baobab– £10.15/200ml – mildly scented with rosemary and lavender, and featuring anti-oxidant rich baobab fruit extract as well as skin-nourishing shea butter, this lotion will hydrate baby’s skin leaving it feeling silky smooth.

Bubble Bath – £7.50/250ml – created for children of all ages, this SLS-free citrus and ylang ylang scented bubble bath will help make children’s bath-time fun rather than a chore.

Berry Toothpaste – £3.60/75ml – designed for children of all ages and suitable for teething babies, this safe-to-swallow toothpaste is free from SLS and fluoride, and has a fantastic natural raspberry flavour to help encourage kids to brush their teeth regularly. It contains xylitol, which has been endorsed by dental associations worldwide for its ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause tooth decay.

Boo and Bugs got to test some of this new range of skincare and we were very impressed with it!! We tried the Berry Toothpaste, Body wash & Shampoo & the Baby Bum Cream!

Boo absolutely loves the Berry Toothpaste – she has never been keen on the minty variety so it was great that we found a toothpaste that she loves! Bugs hates having his teeth brushed full stop so he didn’t really give an opinion on if he liked the taste or not – I was too busy trying to get the toothbrush in his mouth while he wriggled around ;O) It isn’t a very strong fruity flavour just a nice mild berry taste! This gets a big thumbs up from us :O)

The Baby wash and shampoo smells absolutely lovely! I personally hate anything with lavender in it but this isn’t a very strong lavender and I love it! It produces just enough bubbles and you really only need a small amount! Bugs has terrible skin problems and has had no adverse affect from using this so that is FAB!! We love that it comes in a pump action bottle too – I can’t stand messing about with tops at bath time ;O)

Lastly the Baby Bum cream is a gorgeous thick, buttery consistency and smells lovely – it leaves Bugs’s little bum as soft as a babies bottom 😉

So if you are looking for a gorgeous baby skin care range to treat your little ones to this Christmas then this is for you :O)
