As a parent, you want what’s best for your kid. For me, that means living a balanced lifestyle (good food, experiences/travel/leisure/education), and using safe and truly natural products. Because what goes onto our body, also goes into it. When our Little Moon was born, we bought all sorts of natural and organic baby skincare products, to see what worked best for her. And one of our favourite brands happens to be Canadian made, Aleva Naturals.
Aleva Naturals is a line of maternity and baby skincare products that protect yours and your baby’s skin safely and effectively. Developed by a naturopath, herbalist and pharmacist; specially formulated to deliver therapeutic results that leave a soft and healthy feeling skin
We’re fans of Aleva Naturals products because they contain only the purest natural and organic baby-friendly ingredients; meaning their products are free of the following harsh and harmful chemicals:
- Artificial fragrances or perfume
- Sulphates, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)
- Ethyl alcohol
Below, you will find our review on four of Aleva Naturals baby skincare products.
Aleva Naturals 2 in 1 Hair and Body Wash
I love self-foaming hair and body wash, especially now the Luna is a little older and wants to help clean herself during bath time. It’s easy for me to pump into her hand, and she can wash herself. Don’t worry, I do a round myself, just to make sure she is actually clean, hehehe.
The 2 in 1 is gentle on the eyes, and leaves her hair smelling lovely, like chamomile. I found that it also gently removed flakes from Little Moon’s cradle cap, thanks to the Tea Tree Oil.
As a body, it leaves her skin feeling soft and smooth.
Sleep Easy Hair & Body Wash
I use the Sleep Easy Hair & Body Wash if I’m giving Lunita a bath before bedtime because its lavender scent is soothing and relaxing. Cuddling after an evening bath is the best! The combination of Organic Aloe Vera and Natural Grape fruit extracts moisturize your baby’s hair and skin, making it feel soft and silky.
Berry Bubble Bath
I really like this bubble bath because the berry scent does not stick around on the skin. With just one squeeze, you get an awesome amount of long-lasting berry bubbles. The combination of Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Shea Butter and Organic Olive Oil moisturizes, while Natural Chamomile and Tea Tree Oils soothe & protect baby’s sensitive skin.
Daily Soothing Moisturizer
Huge fan of the Daily Soothing Moisturizer because it can be used on the face and body. It softens, moisturizes and protects baby’s delicate skin. Shea Butter and Oatmeal helps soothe irritation while Sweet Almond and Olive Oils leave the baby’s skin soft, supple, and silky-smooth.
Now that you’ve read a little bit about Aleva Naturals and a couple of their products, I’m interested in hearing what you think! Have you heard of this line of baby skincare products before?
Oh, I’d also like to mention that Aleva Naturals are vegan and never tested on animals. You can find the entire Aleva Naturals maternity and baby skincare products at various retailers in Vancouver, like London Drugs, and Toys-R-Us. If you are in the USA, you can find them at Babies-R-Us.
