What products do you need to care for your baby's skin?
Babies are beautiful, so precious, but they are all different and have different needs. Some have dry, flaky skin, some have chubby little fat rolls you just want to squeeze, while others encounter irritation and nappy rash that needs comfort or soothing, or you may simply want a quality product to massage your baby. One thing all babies need is a range of products that are non-irritating and gentle, moisturizing and softening.
GAIA Natural Baby developed a range of essential items that are most used within the first 5 years of a baby's life. Their aim is to keep baby skin care simple by offering you the basic items that nourish, nurture and gently care for your little one's skin without too much fuss or irritating ingredients.
GAIA Natural Baby takes into consideration that a baby's skin is thinner than that of an adult, more sensitive, and does not have normal barrier functions when they are born. So they use ingredients that are known to be beneficial to skin, including organic vegetable oils and calming plant extracts, to bring you their range of non-drying cleansers, skin-softening moisturizers, soothing nappy time products and bamboo baby wipes to care for your baby's every day needs. Key ingredients included in GAIA products are:

My baby has dry skin and I need a general moisturizer. What would you recommend?
There are two options. Gaia Natural Baby Moisturizer is non-greasy, light cream that contains certified organic shea butter and certified organic wheat germ oil, which are both great for dry flaky skin.

My baby has eczema and very sensitive skin - is there a suitable GAIA Natural Baby product for me to use?

The Sleeptime Bath, Bath & Body Wash and Shampoo are Gaia's most basic products that have moisturizing oils in them, designed for bathing without dryness.

I have heard that I shouldn't use products with essential oils during pregnancy. Is this true?
Not entirely. There are a small number of pure essential oils that are considered toxic and should be avoided during pregnancy. These include clary sage, fennel, sweet marjoram, myrrh, pennyroyal, rosemary, sage and thyme. The pure essential oils and concentrations used in GAIA Natural Baby products are fine for use during pregnancy without any concern.
Do your products contain alcohol?
Gaia Skin Naturals do not use what you would commonly term "alcohol" in any of their formulations - this generally refers to drying alcohols. Any reference to "alcohol" on these labels refers to the wax alcohols, or cetearyl alcohol which are classed as moisturizing alcohols. Cetearyl alcohol is made from various vegetable oils such as sustainable palm and coconut. They bear little relation to common alcohol, which is a volatile liquid and quite drying.
I am allergic to nuts, do any of your products contain nut oils?
It does depend on your allergy - do you have a peanut or tree nut allergy, or both? Only one Gaia product contain nut/nut derivatives - Gaia Natural Baby Massage Oil, made from pure sweet almond oil. Almonds are actually classified as a fruit and are low allergenic.
Do you have a product that will help with my baby's cradle cap?
Exactly what causes cradle cap remains a bit of a mystery. What is known that it is better to use a product that is pH balanced, free from drying agents and is moisturizing so as not to upset the natural oils of your baby's scalp, which can lead to dryness and cradle cap. Gaia gets a lot of feedback from parents who have babies with cradle cap, and GAIA Natural Baby Massage Oil and Baby Shampoo have given them great success.
Can people with Celiac Disease use Gaia products?
Yes they can! Celiac Disease is a permanent intolerance to dietary gluten and, for this to be of concern, gluten must be ingested. In other words, you need to eat it for it to cause a problem. Wheat products, such as wheat germ oil, can be used on the skin without concern by people diagnosed with celiac disease.
It is hard to find good products that work for you, particularly if you have sensitive skin. A lot of thought goes into creating these products, ensuring they are gentle and effective, and their rules are very simple:
Gaia Skin Naturals formulations are created exclusively for their brand, and a lot of time is spent researching ingredients and their benefits - and more importantly, which ingredients not to include. Only ingredients that have been tried, tested and proven as gentle, non-irritating and known for their safety are used.
Michelle Vogrinec, Gaia Brand Creator, spends most of her time in product development and still hand-makes some of their new products before they hit the market. She then works with the highly skilled team of professional biochemists and aromatherapists to ensure these products adhere to high quality and safety standards.
Although Gaia Skin Naturals began on the stove top, these products have been manufactured in professional laboratories right from the very beginning. In fact, most are made in Australian Certified Organic manufacturing facilities by experts that are passionate and resourceful and specialize in the manufacture of natural and organic skin care formulations.
Gaia has made the choice to include all ingredients on the product labels for you - not all skin companies do. A lot of preservatives are used at very low percentages and often are not listed on product labels. As a mother of a child who is sensitive to soaps, detergents and preservatives, Michelle feels it is important that you know all the ingredients they use so you can be confident in knowing exactly what you are putting on your little one's skin. Gaia Skin Naturals doesn't test on animals - they use real people to test their "potions" and continue to tweak them until they are satisfied they have created a winner. All Gaia products are Cruelty Free Accredited. This means that:
What does Gaia use in their products?

Why choose natural skin care?
Your skin tells the world your age, environment and emotional wellbeing and many things attribute to how well or not so well your skin looks and feels so you should take care of it. Healthy skin is reflected from being healthy on the inside.
Eating well, incorporating as much fresh organic fruit and vegetables as you can, drinking plenty of filtered water, enjoying fresh air, exercise daily, wearing a hat when you are out in the sun and not smoking all contribute to healthier, happier skin. And looking after your skin using beneficial natural oils and extracts will also contribute to giving fresh, healthy, beautiful skin.
Plants and humans are perfectly compatible, unlike their synthetic counterparts, which are often said to be more durable, economical and practical but do not have the properties or effects as a natural product. Natural plant properties cannot be replicated.
It is also well known that some commonly used ingredients come with side effects that can include itchiness, dryness and even skin irritation.
What components are need to make skin care products?
Making skin care products is like baking a cake - you need certain ingredients for it to bake well and taste great. The same thing applies with your skin care products so they perform well and have a nice texture and feel about them.
For many people, choosing organic is not only about their health but also about the health of the planet. Organic farming uses techniques that preserve the environment and keep the soil as healthy as it can be. It does not use synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides and chemicals or any other substances that are or may be harmful to soil, water, wildlife, human life or the environment.
When synthetic pesticides, insecticides and other chemicals are sprayed onto the farms, it decreases the quality of the soil and increases salinity (salt levels). It also depletes the soil of vital minerals necessary for the healthy functioning of the body. Chemicals not only affect the soil they are sprayed onto. Rain washes these chemicals into waterways and the water you drink. Through the food you eat and the skin care products you use, these chemicals are taken into your bodies. Here, they can damage your immune system and cause allergies, infections and even cancers.
The skin is a living, breathing organ needs to be cared for. Everything is absorbed through your skin therefore it should be gentle and non-toxic.
What is in Gaia Skin Naturals products?
Gaia's carefully selected ingredients are all derived from natural sources. They have chosen ingredients because they are gentle and have beneficial properties, and they use as many organic ingredients as they can get their hands on. GAIA lists all ingredients used and only the certified organic ingredients are listed as organic - this validates the organic ingredients to ensure they are following stringent guidelines for their certification. There may be a higher proportion of organic components in these formulations than actually listed on the label.
