"Years ago, I started making products in my kitchen for my babies. As a toddler my son had eczema and as I searched the aisles for something to soothe his skin, I found that even in the ‘gentlest’ of baby products, every other ingredient was one I couldn’t spell that was concocted in a lab. There was no way I was going to put harmful chemicals on my baby’s skin. And I don’t want you to, either. That's why everything we make is 100% vegan, organic, and handmade in small batches with ingredients that come from Mother Earth."
