My 6-month old baby and I were sooo sick over the weekend, it was terrible. But luckily, with advice from our pedia who was in touch with us the entire time, lots of sleep, and my Young Living essential oils, I got well enough to get to Makati to check out the awesome line up of all natural, safe, and mild products for babies from Biolane (read: bi-yo-lahn).
My Personal Consumption Philosophy
Whenever I choose products for my baby, I prefer natural. I always read labels (as much as I can, anyway). If a product contains so many ingredients, especially non-natural ones, I would avoid it. Top on my list of items that SHOULDN’T be in my baby’s products are alcohol, parabens, and phenoxyethanol. I got really excited to learn that Biolane doesn’t contain these. It’s been recommended for more than 40 years in maternity wards, and is still contantly being recommended to date, around the world.
I learned that Biolane products contain Hydra-bléïne, a patented natural plant-based formulation made using only active natural ingredients such as wheat oil and plant proteins. The concept is actually very sound – we don’t want baby products to be too strong that it strips their skin’s protective layers. That will only make their skin more prone to allergies, rashes, and all sorts of nasty stuff. Instead, it prevents skin dehydration and acts as a barrier, thereby allowing it the skin to maintain its hydro-lipid balance.
I’m so excited that these products, imported from France, are now available in the Philippines: Bath Time products: 2-in-1 Body and Hair Cleanser, Essential Cleansing Emulsion, Extra Rich Soap, Gentle Shampoo, and Shower Gel and Bath Foam; No-Rinse Cleansing products: Gentle Cleansing Milk, Pure H20, Sensitive Wipes, and Thick H20 Baby Wipes; Diaper and Baby Care products: Liquid Talc, Water Based Cream, Arnica Gel, Moisturizing Spray, Nourishing and Moisturizing Cream, Soothing Cream, Sun Cream Baby, and Sweet Almond Oil Spray; and Atopy and Eczemaprone skin products: Dermo-Paediatrics Hair and Body Gel, Dermo-Paediatrics Soothing Cleansing Oil, Dermo-Paediatrics Miscellar Solution, Dermo-Paediatrics Diaper Rash Cream, and Dermo-Paediatrics Moisturizing Cream. What’s more, Biolane also looks out for moms during pregnancy and post birth with products that are safe for both mother and child, like our Nursing Cream, Stretch Marks Cream, and Stretch Marks Dry Oil.
