What is bentonite?
Bentonite is a naturally occurring absorbent clay that has the power to absorb oil, dirt and bacteria from the skin. Our Baby Butter with bentonite and zinc oxide creates a perfect moisture and irritant barrier on baby's skin, perfect for helping soothe diaper rash!
is bentonite safe?
Yes! Bentonite is safe and has been used for thousands of years for it's detoxifying benefits and calming effect on inflamed skin.
are essential oils used in your baby products?
Nope! Essential oils can be sensitive to infant skin, so we leave them out of all our Basic Plus Baby products. The light aroma you may smell is the natural scent of the cocoa butter, shea butter, and calendula oil used in our baby products.
How do you make products with no preservaties?
By leaving out the water! Bacteria needs water to grow, so by leaving out the water we can leave out the preservatives as well.
why are Basic Plus creams not as absorbent as the ones i buy at the store?
Because we use pure unaltered butters and oils with no water added. Most well-known cosmetic lines add water to their products to both water down the products and help with absorption into the skin. But because we don't want to add preservatives, we leave the water out. This results in a more concentrated product, that takes longer to absorb into the skin.
