Good Call

the mineral owl!

411: How may I assist you today?

Caller: I have a tiny tush that needs attention.

411: Sounds kinky.

Caller: Hardly. It’s my newborn — I want to keep her skin soft.

411: Try The Mineral Owl’s bath and body products for babies.

Caller: The brand created by a local mother/daughter team?

411: Exactly. The entire line is organic and made with minerals and essential oils. Super-moisturizing lotion smells like lavender, and the hair and body wash contain protective oat extract and wheat protein.

Caller: No chemicals — yipee!

411: I’ll connect you to nearby shops Anjenu and Team Blonde.

Caller: You’re one smooth operator.

Available at Anjénu, 1747 West Division Street, between Hermitage Avenue and Wood Street (773-469-2212 or anjenu.com); Team Blonde, 7442 West Madison Street, between Beloit and Hannah Avenues, Forest Park (708-771-5590 or teamblonde.com); online at themineralowl.com.
