Moonbaby Naturals pure Tamanu oil
Our tamanu oil is pure, 100% organic and harvested in Indonesia. The oil is cold pressed which means extractions happen at very low temperatures, much lower than their boiling point. In this way, you can prevent decomposition and maintain the characteristics of molecules very similar to those produced by plants.
Vitamin-E oil is not a single vitamin, but rather a group of fat-soluble vitamins with antioxidant effects. Besides being deeply nourishing it is also a natural preservative, which is why we use it in our balms.
Extra virgin olive oil is amazing for the skin as well! It acts as a natural moisturizer and can improve your skin health. The oil has a regenerative power over skin tissues and helps to keep the skin toned. It is high in vitamin E and other antioxidants and has inflammatory properties, reduces the itching sensation diaper rashes create and protects the skin from bacteria and skin infection. It creates a barrier between skin and the urine and promotes the healing process of the cracked or irritated skin, which makes it a perfect ingredient to treat rashes.
Our slowly infused olive oil with dried chamomile flowers
Botanical oil infusion is done for decades and dates back to the earliest forms of herbal medicine and is still used throughout the world today. It is often ingested as a tea for calming and soothing purposes and is mild enough to be administered to babies and people with sensitive skin and/or skin problems.
We at Moonbaby Naturals infuse the dried chamomile flowers in olive oil. This allows the slow warmth of the oil to draw out healing benefits of herbs and flowers and therefore is one of the gentlest ways of transferring benefits to the skin. Chamomile is very aromatic and has white daisy-like flowers and smells like apples or pineapple. In fact, in Ancient Greek chamomile means ‘ground apple’ and they already used it to heal rashes for their babies.
Our ancestors didn’t have to worry about the quality of their ingredients like we do. That’s why we make sure our chamomile is 100% organic. We combine our dried chamomile in jars together with cold-pressed, unrefined, extra virgin olive oil and warm it slowly with a low, controlled heat (not above 365F/185C)
Candelilla wax is a great option if you are looking for vegan alternatives to wax. It acts as a barrier and help prevents moisture loss. It basically builds a protective layer on your baby’s bum so it can prevent diaper rashes. Candelilla wax is rich in nutrients and easily absorbed into the skin, allowing it to act as a barrier and help prevent moisture loss.
Extra virgin coconut oil This amazing, nutritious and nourishing oil is antibacterial, hydrating and packed with antioxidants and vitamin E. Coconut oil is anti fungal because it contains three anti fungal fatty acids called lauric acid (also found in breastmilk), capric acid and caprylic acid. It protects the skin from potential pathogens and can reduce the risk of bacterial infections. So besides being moisturizing and deep cleansing, coconut oil can also keep bacterial populations under control. This makes it perfect to treat any (diaper) rash. Coconut oil is especially good for babies/children because of its tenderness and allergy is very uncommon. Coconut oil melts on the skin as soon as you apply it and due to its small molecular structure, the oil absorbs easily through the skin and into the cell structure of the connective tissues, moisturizing deeply and thoroughly. In this way, coconut oil has the ability to actually restore diseased or damaged skin easily.
Safe & hypoallergenic
There’s a great misunderstanding that when one is allergic to nuts they cannot use coconut oil. It does come from the coconut trees but botanically speaking it is a dupe, not a nut! So there should be no reason why a person with peanut or nut allergies should have a similar reaction to coconut oil. It is scientifically proven that the protein in nuts cause allergic reactions and coconut oil doesn’t contain any proteins. Coconut oil is very safe for babies and people with sensitive skin. Though every case is different and an allergic reaction could occur. It could be sensitivity to on did the other fatty acids in the oil. Make sure to speak with your health care provider when in doubt.
