Baby Friendly Ingredients
SOS balm only contains 100% natural ingredients in recyclable packaging. without water in the product there's no need for preservatives.
Unrefined organic Shea Butter gently soothes rashes and soreness, but more importantly it allows the skin to breath. For nappy rash, you want the skin to breath to release unwanted moisture, especially in a hot nappy environment!
Many baby products use mineral oil, liquid paraffin or other petroleum ingredients as they are incredibly cheap and easy to manufacture. They work as a good moisture barrier but trap moisture in and don’t allow any air to the skin. This can actually dry the skin out. Stripped of natural balance, bottoms get sorer and redder needing constant re-application. It’s a bit like wrapping the skin in cling film which adds heat, add urine to the mix and you have a stinging red raw rash. Shea butter as an alternative to mineral oil and liquid paraffin, not only creates a nice barrier to moisture but sinks into the skin, taking with it it’s natural skin soothing abilities.
Calendula and chamomile extracts both add to the cooling soothing effects of the balm. They calm red and inflamed skin, they also have some anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory properties.
Argan and hemp oils aid healing and balance skin, they too have soothing qualities. These were chosen for their regenerative properties, ability to aid with eczema and psoriasis but also because they sink in quickly and don’t block pores. They contribute to skins natural balance and barrier. These ingredients don’t leave skin feeling heavy and greasy, which can feel uncomfortable on sore inflamed skin.
Vitamin E helps protect delicate skin from damage due to its antioxidant properties. It's also extremely hydrating.
