Lullaby Melting Balm Cleanser
During the first year, a baby's skin is still changing and developing - it differs in composition and structure from an adult's skin. Baby's outer skin layer is 30% times thinner than an adult's outer skin layer. Baby's fragile skin barrier is responsible for protecting it from toxins and water loss. Harsh cleansers and bath products can strip moisture and alter the pH of baby's skin.
Altering the pH of baby’s skin can damage baby's microbiome (the diverse, harmless, or beneficial microorganisms that colonize the skin surface), leaving baby susceptible to skin ailments like eczema.
Still, water alone is not enough to clean the skin and a cleanser is needed to emulsify the impurities on the skins surface so they can easily be removed by water.
The Lullaby Melting Balm Cleanser is a massage balm + gentle cleanser + moisturizer in one. It contains organic, cold-pressed oils rich in vitamin E and omega 6, which are known to not just maintain but improve baby’s natural skin barrier.
After the oil-based balm is massaged onto baby’s skin, some of the nourishing oils are absorbed into the skin. The balm left on the surface of baby’s skin transforms into a cleansing milk in the bathwater. The milk is easily rinsed off taking away impurities with it.
Since the melting balm cleanser is an oil-based cleanser, it moisturizes the skin while it cleanses and has minimal impact on the microbiome and pH of baby’s skin. After the bath, little to no product is left on baby's skin allowing it to breathe, change, and develop as nature intended.
Step 1: Massage our Lullaby Melting Balm Cleanser onto baby's DRY SKIN (yes, you apply it before the bath, no fumbling with products while holding baby!)
Step 2: Place baby in warm bath water and the balm transforms into a milk cleanser (the bathwater magically transforms into a vegan-milk bath, no suds here!) Use our Full Moon Konjac sponge (link to product) to wash off milk.
Step 3: Rinse and dry your clean and moisturized baby (some nourishing oils absorbed into baby's skin during the massage and bath, win, win!).
Kalahari melon seed oil is our superstar ingredient. Responsibly-sourced from farms that support the economic redevelopment of southern African drought communities, this cold-pressed oil is extracted from the abundant seeds of the Kalahari melon. This exotic super-fruit, rich with antioxidants, is indigenous to the Kalahari Desert and is sustainably harvested without damaging or depleting the ecological resources. Kalahari Melon is a highly beneficial botanical as it restores nourishment and skin balance with extremely high doses of both essential fatty acids (70%) and natural skin-healing Vitamin E.
