When it comes to your child, no expense shall be spared. Same thing goes for your stretch marks.
In that case, take care of both with Baby Cow Organics and Udderyly Gorgeous skin care lines from Cowshed Spa. The nourishing collection of washes and creams are meant to nurture mom and babe in a natural, healthy way.
All of the products for babies are made with meadowfoam oil, combining deep moisturizing properties with a protective barrier to help skin hold on to the good stuff. Baby’s bath turns blissful with the frothy hair and body wash, a gentle rinse of calming lavender and bergamot oils. Follow it with the paraben-free rich massage oil and full body cream to seal in moisture before adding just a touch of buttery bottom balm to keep the nappy rash at bay.
If you happen to be preggers, the relaxing bath and shower gel, stretch mark balm, and bath salts are packed with vitamins, carotenes, minerals, and fatty acids that pamper and promote skin’s elasticity. So when all is said and done, you should bounce right back.
