Botanical Therapy Cleansing Therapy Pure Baby Wash
As a mom, I always want the best for my girls, but choosing the right skincare for my girls can sometimes be difficult. What is really safe? Can they prevent or subside rashes and other skin issues? What are the ingredients we can trust? So many concerns came to my attention when curating baby and kids skincare. I also received so many DMs from #ksistersfam on when we are bringing baby and kids skincare and sorry it took so long to bring in! It was hard to find the RIGHT ONE~
I sampled quite a few brands since Yeonsoo & Jooha were younger but never really found a brand that I was satisfied with. Until recently, I saw that many mommies on Momsholic (a popular KR forum for mommies to share reviews & recommendations) were recommending 2 brands - one of which is Botanical Therapy. Since Yeonsoo and Jooha are older now, our new mom, Stephanie from #teamksisters who just had a newborn tested and reviewed these baby skincare brands on which was most effective.
Our criteria were the main concerns many parents have:
- Ingredients & Performance - Free of the 9 harmful chemicals* that can cause skin irritation + pass allergen-free tests
- No Fragrances - While added fragrances may smell nice, some might cause sensitive skin to get overly dry and irritated
- Suitable for Sensitive & Eczema Skin
- No-Tear Formula
*Methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, isopropyl paraben, isobutyl paraben, p-hydroxybenzoic acid, phenoxyethanol, benzyl alcoholAnd Botanical Therapy Baby Wash passed all the criteria above! More importantly, they had individual products dedicated to scalp and bodycare. Why important? Baby’s scalp and body have different skin characteristics such as skin acidity (pH). Cleansers don’t have to be harsh to be effective, especially when babies’ skin is a lot more delicate and sensitive. Besides removing dirt, baths should also aid in protecting babies' skin. Tip from us - gentle massages during bath time can also promote blood circulation too!
We also really like Botanical Therapy because it is a brainchild of a company that specialises in baby skincare, not adult skincare! So when we reviewed their lineup and formulas, we knew the brand has a deep understanding about baby skin and its behaviour. Plus, Botanical Therapy also brings in products such as kids conditioner as well as individual shampoo and body wash (instead of your usual 2-in-1!), which are not commonly found in other brands and are so rare! The Kids line will be launching in Sept together with their kids suncare and cleansing water which are very well-loved by KR moms too! The brand also grew popular in Korea through word-of-mouth in mommy community.
