Better Skin for Bump & Baby
When skin is delicate or sensitive, finding the right Skincare products can be really irritating!
Expectant mothers and new parents are expected to compare and contrast hundreds of stores, thousands of skincare brands, and a mind numbing amount of text trying to seek out, remove and eliminate irritants in order to find a collection of products that they would feel happy to use on their new born.
My skin has always been difficult to manage, being prone to Eczema/ Dermatitis. In an effort to reduce inflammation I would seek out skincare products marked as; sensitive, 100% natural and even those marketed as suitable for babies. I had assumed that these terms, in particular those suitable for babies, meant that the products would now be free of potential sensitisers. However, many of these still contained added fragrance of some description and I was finding that my skin was getting worse, not better. While essential oils, for example, are cosmetically appealing and have some skin benefits they can bring with them the potential to sensitise the skin and work against those benefits.
The Skin Kind Destination
I decided to create a new skincare destination: SKIND. I searched through brands, to find products that matched my sensitive skin requirements before buying them to try out (along with any family/friends that I can rope in). Only after this do I include them in the SKIND product line-up. If I wouldn't use it we wouldn't sell it!
We now have a Mother and Baby range that contain products that are all:
Free from the EU's list of 26 fragrance allergens found in many essential oils
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) free
From UK based skincare brands
