Mums often go into panic mode when they discover they are pregnant wanting to find the best products that are kind to your bump and the environment. Stress no longer! We have discovered some of the best Eco-friendly range on the market.
Eco-friendly must haves
Becoming a mum is both an incredibly rewarding yet incredibly challenging time. From the recovery, to having your sleep disrupted, to having a new little life that you are now responsible for, there is a lot going on.
One thing that may surprise new mums is the sheer number of products that you go through every day. From thousands of wipes to nappies, paper towel and everything in between.
The good news is that there have been so many new and exceptional innovative products released over the past few years, that not only make life easier, but are also more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
Here are some of our top picks.
Natralus is the Australian owned brand that’s backed by 442,000 new mums for its eco-friendly, vegan ingredients, and its hero product the ‘Little One Nappy Barrier Cream’.
Enriched with Paw Paw, for its healing properties, Shea Butter for moisturisation, Zinc as a protective barrier against irritants and Calendula for soothing and providing relief to your little one’s skin.
ZERO Dry Wipes
What is a dry wipe you may ask? A dry wipe is a game changing product for anyone who has tried one. If you are yet to try one, you are in for a treat.
An Aussie start-up called ZERO has released the ultimate dry wipe, which as the name suggests, is a wipe that comes to you dry. It contains no chemicals, fragrances, or plastic, instead you add your own water as needed, which means that there is way less chance of your baby getting a rash or any irritations that are usually associated with products that have chemicals in them to keep them fresh.
Additionally, the product is reusable, as it is thick and strong enough to be machine washed up to three times, and then when you are done you can pop it in the compost, which makes it a great choice for the environment.
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding often try to avoid putting chemicals on their skin, and one of the major culprits for this is deodorant.
Totem Eco has created an award-winning deodorant paste, that is 100% natural and free from parabens, aluminium, sweat blockers and other nasties. It is also vegan friendly and cruelty free.
Deodorant is packed full of chemicals usually, so this is a brilliant product if you want to reduce the chemicals that you are putting onto your skin and absorbing into your blood stream.
Finally, a product for mum. Step One is a best-selling Australian underwear brand that is made from Organic bamboo viscose, is naturally breathable and feels luxe soft on the skin. They have a boxer brief for women, which comes with Step One’s Ultra Glyde technology between your thighs, boosting comfort and minimise your risk of chafing. They also have a bikini brief if that is more your style.
This innovative sustainable period brand offers both internal and external period supplies and can be a great alternative for busy mums trying to minimise their impact on the environment and their period underwear is wonderful for any younger people who are just starting their periods.
