Oh, how I love natural products that genuinely work and are effective. Shopping for natural products can be challenging as sometimes they are not as green as they are marketed. I have found these three beauty essentials to be pretty spot on thanks to one of my favourite online shops, Well.ca.

When I worked in the beauty department of The Big Carrot, you could tell what time of year it was by the most popular questions being asked. There were always sunblock questions in the spring and bug spray questions in the summer and lice questions in the fall. But this time of year? The dead of winter was always the time customers started trickling in complaining about persistent dry skin on their faces and wondering whether they should be replacing their current moisturizer.
As a second time new Mum who’s gotten a lot more particular about the products I use on my little ones, one of my biggest challenges is finding healthy and safe products to use on the sensitive skin of newborns. Let’s face it, we’ve got enough on our minds to deal with. When we’re toughing it out in the trenches of the fourth trimester, surviving on a few hours of sleep a day and recovering from pregnancy, the last thing we want to do is spend hours looking up ingredients on Google.
I was thrilled to learn about the line of natural newborn skin care products made by The Homemade Organics Company. They’re a Canadian-owned producer of certified organic skin care products for moms and babies, as well as cleaning products for the home. All of the ingredients they use are eco-conscious, vegan, chemical-free, pesticide-free and alcohol-free. They’re even certified through PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies Program. This is the real deal.
