Kids, it's bath time!

Some kids love it, some well, not really...  My kids, Klara and Coco love baths! 

I must tell you, I have a wonderful job: creating yummy organic skincare products; especially when I get to use these goodies on my own babies and know that I am giving them the very best.

I use KlaraCoco's Enfant chéri Organic Liquid Soap for Children, a truly luxuriant, extra mild and gentle castille soap made from certified organic ingredients, nutrient rich organic oils, without harsh chemicals, additives and colorants. It is lightly scented with organic Lavender and Mandarin essential oils, and has a mild pH that will not dry out the skin and can be used as a body cleanser, shampoo, hand wash for the whole family.

We do not use the liquid soap every day, only in the Summer months when my kids are playing outside with all their fiends (and I sit on the driveway with my lovely neighbours, sipping "limonade") and they are dirty from head to toe.

So, as I said soap is about every other day, and the rest of the week, we use
KlaraCoco's Enfant chéri Organic Herbal Oat Bath that is designed to soothe the most sensitive of skin types. 

Added organic calendula and lavender flower petals along with creamy oats are the perfect all natural bath to help sooth young children's skin. And I don't need to worry about the mess of oat floating in the bathtub : there is reusable muslin bag included with the jar that you can fill with the oat bath and infuse all the goodness in the bath water! 

After bath, I massage them with KlaraCoco's Enfant Chéri Organic Body Oil for Children. This oil is a gentle blend of organic sunflower and cold pressed olive oils and generously added organic calendula - mother nature healing power! - and calming mandarin and lavender essential oils.

It absorbs quickly and easily into the child's skin, leaving it moisturized and protected without feeling greasy.

In the Winter months (in Calgary it's about 8 months strait) sometime my girls skin needs more moisture. I use then KlaraCoco's Organic Enfant Chéri Soothing Baby Balm with Shea Butter, Calendula, Lavender and Tea Tree Essential Oils.

For babies* you can use it as a gentle diaper/barrier cream or to soothe diaper rash or treat cradle cap. But it is also perfect for dry hands, cracked feet and eczema patches for older kids and adults.
These four products that we offer at KlaraCoco cover the perfect skincare routine for babies and older children. 
How you view “bath time” is up to you. Many parents and their children choose to treat it as a chore. However, you can choose to turn bath time into something special, which both you and your child will enjoy every day. For children, bath time should be a transition between the busy world of day and the peaceful world of bed. With very little effort you can make it a magic time for both of you.

*Aromatherapist does not recommend using any products with essential oils on babies under two months of age!
