Why seek a natural alternative? Every new parent understands the miracle of birth
and the outpouring of emotions that accompany the bringing home of a new baby. Just
one look, touch and smell of the baby's skin and hair tells us that we need to nurture
and to protect the baby's tiny body. We think that natural ingredients are the only
ingredients that we would put on our baby's soft skin. We think that you would too,
if you had the right information.
In fact, many parents remain unaware that almost all mainstream products are potentially
harmful to their babies. "No more tears shampoos" can contain numbing agents; baby
talcum powder is a known carcinogen; most baby oils are mineral oil, which leaches
moisture; cornstarch powders can encourage the growth of yeast and promote diaper
rash; and bubble baths are the leading cause of yeast and urinary tract infections
Additionally, products that are produced to treat certain infant skin ailments are
so ineffective that doctors are generally forced to prescribe products such as athlete's
foot treatment for diaper rash, cortisone creams for infant eczema and adult dandruff
treatments for cradle cap. Since these products are formulated for adults and not
babies, they can be damaging.
After extensive research and development, Little Forest has created two product
lines focused on safety and effectiveness. Each of our products is a scientific
blend of natural ingredients that have been carefully selected for their gentle
efficacy, regardless of cost. Little Forest cares for your baby with botanical ingredients
such as chamomile, tea tree oil, echinacea and aloe vera. We use these and other
ingredients to create our Daily Botanicals, formulated
to handle everyday bathing regimes through our simple and comprehensive
1-2-3 System, and our Therapeutic Botanicals,
formulated to soothe minor infant skin ailments such as diaper rash, cradle cap,
Little Forest products have been created for infants to share with the entire family.
It is our belief that families should share the baby's milder hair and skin care
products, rather than the baby sharing the adult products. Once Little Forest launched
and pediatricians and hospitals discovered how safe and effective the products were,
they began to recommend them. However, our greatest recommendations continue to
come from parents.
