For anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a total freak when it comes to what goes in or on my body, including my family’s. I’m THAT person who will read the ingredients of our groceries/out to eat and research the materials in everything I buy. This is because all of the crap that goes into our foods, clothing, household items, and cosmetics. Even if it costs more, I strive to get the cleanest and purest items in our household to counteract everything we’re up against in society (okay, I’ll get off my soapbox now).
Now that I have a toddler with food sensitivities and soon to have another tiny human arriving in a few weeks, I become even more anal of the daily products that we use. For years I’ve been trying to find lotions and/or creams that can help with mine and my son’s eczema. I’ve gone as far as used virgin coconut oil on our skin, but luckily, I’ve found less than a handful of brands that I keep on rotation (based on the time of the year) that I use to keep our skin nice and hydrated.
Unfortunately for babies and everyone else, the FDA has almost no authority to regulate personal products. Babies are at greater risk for harm caused by man-made chemicals in the environment because they undergo rapid and dynamic growth and development at the molecular, cellular, organ, and whole-child levels. Newborns in particular pass through critical periods of susceptibility with respect to organ development. Babies are exposed to toxic environmental chemicals not only through what they eat, drink, breathe, and put in their mouths, but also through their skin. The ratio of the newborn’s skin surface area to body weight is about three times greater than that of an adult. You’d be surprised at how something as little as a pacifier, diaper wipe, or paint on their crib can be toxic.
Evereden is a non-toxic skincare brand that is perfect for anyone in your little family. Formulated by a team of three pediatric dermatologists who were moms first before becoming Doctors, Evereden products are made without 1,400 harmful ingredients prohibited in the EU like sulfates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances. Evereden uses top-tier ingredients like Kakadu Plum, Milk Protein, Seaweed extract, Green Tea, and Rose Hip Seed Oil to nourish and protect fragile skin. Another ingredient includes Sunflower Seed Oil, which has rich medical data backing its impact on skin barrier function and will benefit kids’ skin.
How are Evereden products different from other brands you ask? Evereden uses a science-backed approach in reviewing ingredients to avoid and look to existing medical data to inform our decisions. Because industry standards haven’t been updated in so long, the Evereden crew continuously examines emerging data to keep ahead of the curve. They also incorporate top-tier, high performing ingredients to keep their products safe and non-toxic.
My favorite products during this pregnancy have been the Soothing Baby Massage Oil and Baby Moisturizing Lotion. I’ve been using both the oil and lotion interchangeably every day and I haven’t seen ONE stretch mark (victory!). Best of all, I’ve been lathering the same items on my son’s itchy eczema skin AND I’ve seen at least an 80% improvement in just under one month of use. I can only recommend this phenomenal brand and their products for any one, any age, at any state of life.
Thank you Evereden for sponsoring this post! It’s incredible to me that I partner with brands I love and truly believe in on One Full Plate.
