Your newborn’s no meat eater, but that doesn’t stop her from chomping on all those fingers and toes.
If you’re concerned about what’s ending up in her mouth, you’re not the only one.
Sweet Beauty Baby, the new all-natural skin care line by Sweet Beauty founder Lisa Francoise Schafer, uses ingredients (fair trade-certified cocoa butter, sweet orange, raspberry) pure enough to eat (not that we’re saying you should).
There’s a lotion for the whole bod; a rich balm that works wonders on dry spots, skin irritations, and eczema; and an oil that does double duty as massage aid and bath time cleanser.
All of which go down smooth.
