3 Gentle Brands for Babies and Mamas

3 Gentle Brands for Babies and Mamas

I want to talk about not limiting ourselves in the knowledge we consume. This post is for everyone.

I write about different topics every week, but there is always something you can learn or gain from my posts, even if the topic may seem irrelevant.

If you want to eventually have kids, you are a man looking for products for a woman, if you want more transparent and non-toxic home products, or you have a friend who is a new mommy or daddy.

The brands I’ve listed carry products for everyone, for babies, for moms, and pregnant women!

1. Frankly Eco

  • Co-founded by Australian moms (& sisters) Anna & Lilly Scullie

  • Vegan, cruelty-free & ethically sourced ingredients

  • Made in Australia

  • Partly organic, BUT in the process of converting to all organic ingredients and becoming certified organic

  • Free from parabens, phthalates, paraffin, propylene glycol, silicones, sulphates, DEA, mineral oil, & genetically modified ingredients (GMOs)

  • Read about their ingredients here

What really stands out to me is that Frankly Eco acknowledges the Aboriginal history of the land of Australia. Frankly Eco respects the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Peoples spiritual connection with their country and waterways.

ALSO they employ women.

We are committed to supporting women’s rights, we pay by according to an employee’s skills and not their gender. Our overall commitment is to ensure we support minority groups and advocate for these causes to be fair and just.

Everything we put into our products is not only safe for you and your family, but also for the environment (to leave the smallest possible ecological footprint). Our range is packed with natural plant-based goodness and organic essential oils, and is frankly free from nasties.
