Nature’s Basin is a new California-based website that offers organic and for parents who care about organic and natural skin care products since they offer a large range of these and other organic items. My life is filled with so much rubbish as it is, I thought it would be a welcome change to my chemical-laden life, plus a great way to treat my sweet three-month-old to the natural care his body deserves.
I chose the Organic Baby Starter Kit ($12.95). It looked like the perfect solution for my already cramped diaper bag. I couldn’t seem to find anything that was small enough to fit in the bag and didn’t weigh down. It’s hard enough carrying a car seat, but add a bag with all the necessary baby accoutrement, it’s like I’m schelpping a full-grown man.
What struck me first was the packaging, nice crisp brown paper with light tissue. I’m really tired of opening up a box of styrofoam pieces to find a product the size of my fist. Very nice touch!
The Organic Baby Care Starter Kit includes the calendula baby cream, lotion, shampoo and body wash, oil and diaper cream–all organic, perfectly sized for easy storage.
The products are made from calendula. I never knew was calendula was until I found this kit. It sounds almost magical, like a far off castle we need a team of horses, a shaman and an ancient map to reach. Calendula is sort of mystical, actually, being completely safe and non-toxic but containing healing properties. And it smells really fresh, not at all what I was expecting from an organic product. I think I was expecting like the smell when I pass the incense shop downtown and my mouth, nose and throat are filled with the intense smoke. This was so light and pleasant. A sweet but not cloying scent that smelled clean, not like the multitude of products that make my son smell like citrus car air freshener.
The most perfect part of this product was the seal on each bottle. Each had a tight seal that keeps all the liquids in. I’ve have a huge history of leaky messes in my purses and diaper bags but I didn’t have this concern at all. This alleviated one of my biggest worries as a mom of a four-year-old and a three-month-old: will what I buy becomes a liability for cleanups later?
I was really satisfied with the Baby Care Starter Kit. It provides an array of organic baby care products without the bulk. Not only does it make a nice go-bag for day trips, but it could easily be a sweet gift for expecting parents or anyone who wants to test out some sweet organic sundries.
There’s so much noise out there on the right products to buy, it’s hard to figure out what’s worth the money. One search for “organic baby lotion” yields over 300K results. Nature’s Basin’s website layout provides a quick and simple view into organic and natural alternatives for self-care products for babies and mamas alike. There are explanations as to what organic really is, plus an aesthetician on staff who will answer any beauty care question you have, free of charge!
