As a mum of four young children I rarely leave the house without a nappy bag filled with baby essentials. Nappies, wipes, a clean outfit, some spare dummies, a bottle of water and some snacks, a few toys and anything else they may need when out and about. Even though I have a big bag there is little room left for any mama must-haves so I was pretty chuffed to discover a fabulous multi-purpose product from Nature’s Care Paw Paw that I can use on the whole family:
Nature’s Care Paw Paw Baby Balm ($6.99, 100g) is a lovely fruity balm that has many different uses, it’s like a tube of magic. As the name suggests this natural ointment is perfect for the delicate skin of babies and children but adults can enjoy it too, it can be used all over the body as often as you like to keep skin soft and smooth and it’s an excellent emergency treatment for little dry patches or scrapes.
These last few weeks the weather has been very up and down so one day it’s cold and windy and the next day the air is hot and dry. I’ve been using the Baby Balm to nourish chapped lips, dry cuticles and little noses that turned red due to lots of nose wiping, the relief is almost instant and the smell is delicious. Who would have thought one simple, very affordable, product could be so handy? Great bonus: The bright pink colour is easy to spot in a full handbag.
So I’ve seen first hand that Paw Paw does wonders for our skin but is it suitable for soft, fine baby hair too. The Nature’s Care Paw Paw Shampoo & Body Wash ($8.99, 500ml) is 100% soap free and PH balanced, it’s a great all-in-one product that cleans our littlest girl (who has short, curly hair) from top to bottom. The pump flacon is easy to use, I can hold my slippery baby with one arm and dispense the cleaner with the other hand.
Why Paw Paw? Paw Paw, also known as papaya, is well known for its therapeutic properties. It’s rich in Omega nine, antioxidants and vitamins that keep skin well moisturised and aid the healing process. Add to that a carefully chosen selection of all natural derived plant based ingredients like beeswax and sunflower seed oil and you’ve got a winning combination free from nasty chemicals.
The revamped Nature’s Care Paw Paw Range is made right here in Australia and consists of seven fantastic adult care products and nine great baby care products, two of which are exclusively available at Woolworths stores across Australia and online.
