Big Birthday Bash – Day 14

When Aromababy founder and mum-of-two Catherine Cervasio struggled to find natural organic products for her own baby many years ago she decided to take matters into her own hands and create a natural and organic skincare range for pregnancy, baby and the entire family. Aromababy was born and quickly claimed its place as one of the most loved organic skincare brands across the globe, from hospitals in Australia and New Zealand to national and international celebrities everyone simply loves Aromababy.


Aromababy was the first baby care label to use neonatal research as a guide AND be formulated without petro-chemicals, parabens, propylene glycol, sulphates and countless other ingredients thought to be linked to skin irritations. We all want only the best for our children and Aromababy offers just that, peace of mind for caring parents and no nasties. Hair cleanse, body lotion, massage oil, bath gel, baby powder, nappy change cream and more, Aromababy has you covered from top to toe.

Aromababy Barrier Balm, the hero product of the range, is an absolute must-have for Australian families. While originally formulated to soothe nappy rash it soon became a go-to product for eczema, cradle cap, windburn, chafing and a range of other skin related problems, what a fantastic multi-use product! Tip: Keep a nice big jar of Aromababy Barrier Balm at home and carry the mini version (10g) in your handbag or baby bag, for quick relief on the go.
