How to Pick Safe Essential Baby Care Products

Becoming a parent is a wonderful experience. The joyous feeling of seeing a life growing on your lap and shoulder, and around you cannot be explained with words. However, parenthood comes with its own set of unique challenges. And, probably, the most crucial challenge is keeping your baby safe and healthy. 


While we are always careful about the outside germs and bacteria and take precautions to keep those at bay, we often overlook the enemy inside, which we bring home very dearly from stores and e-commerce sites - the baby care products. Baby care products available out there are often filled with harsh chemicals, harmful fertilizers, carcinogenic preservatives, synthetic dyes, and fragrances. All these can potentially cause harm to your baby’s health and can cause long-term health difficulties. 

The best way to keep your baby safe from these harmful elements is by adopting organic baby products. Because, organic baby products, if original like The IndiMums, should be made with natural ingredients and should not contain any artificial chemicals. 

But, since there is a huge crowd of organic brands available in the market, it's confusing which is the safest for your baby. However, if you know what safe qualities you are looking for then decision making will be a lot easier. You can consider the following: 

Read the Label Carefully

Many products are available in the market with ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ labels. But don't just be fooled by the labels, instead check the ingredients/compositions. If that reads synthetic fragrances, dyes, parabens, DMDM hydantoin, sulfates, phthalates, etc. then avoid that product. Pure organic baby products will have none of these chemicals present in their preparation. 

Gentle Ingredients

Your baby has very delicate skin and is easily susceptible to any harsh treatment. Fragrances, sulfates, and other harsh chemicals present in non-organic baby care products can cause skin dryness, rashes, and allergic reactions. Instead, choose a product that uses gentle ingredients. For example, The IndiMums organic baby products contain the soothing natural enzymes of Aloe Vera, antioxidants of coconut oil, and the timeless goodness of Neem. 


A baby care product labeled as hypoallergenic means it is not supposed to cause any allergic reactions while touching, inhaling, or consuming. However, here once again, you have to look beyond the label. Along with the chemicals mentioned in the points above you should look for formaldehyde and propylene glycol. These chemicals are known for causing allergic reactions in babies. The IndiMums organic baby products have no artificial fragrance, color, or any other chemical. 

Maintains Hygiene

Maintaining the hygiene of the newborn is very crucial. Babies have a developing immune system, not strong enough to protect the baby from all germs and bacteria. That’s why it is extremely important to clean the baby with good quality soap which should have disinfectant properties. Instead of using the regular body wash full of harmful chemicals, you can switch to soapnut, also known as natural soap. Soapnut is a mild cleanser and has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. The IndiMums baby skin and hair care products are soapnut-based along with other natural ingredients. This ensures proper cleaning and super hygiene maintenance. 

Using pure organic baby products is recommended for your baby’s good health. Because organic products are gentle, soft, and safe for your baby’s delicate skin. Besides, the natural ingredients in it nourish your baby for a long-term positive effect.
