Paraben Free
Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors. If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalate Free
Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

Sulfate Free
Sulfates are synthetic chemical ingredients commonly used in beauty products and household cleaners, like shampoos and dish soaps. You can usually identify sulfates in an ingredients list by looking out for the most common types: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLC) and Sodium Laureth Sulfates (SLES). These chemicals, often derived from petroleum, are used to help form the “lather” we’re used to seeing in our beauty and cleaning products. When used in the shower or sink, these chemicals can flow through the pipes and into our waterways. Synthetic sulfates have been linked to allergic reactions, eye and skin irritation, and hair loss, and some studies suggest they contain carcinogenic ingredients.

Smells amazing!

I love how this smells! And I love how simple the ingredients are! During my pregnancy I have been trying to keep things simple- I don't want a bunch of chemicals or preservatives on things that touch my body- so I really appreciate how natural this product is. I used it after getting out of the shower and dried off, but skin was still warm and a little damp. I found it easiest to use the back of my thumb nail to scratch/pull some out then rub it in. I ended up putting it on my tummy (of course) and breasts because I've had a lot of growth and stretching there as well. Honestly this stuff smells so good- I kinda wish it came in a bigger jar so I could just use it on my whole body as a general moisturizer! I will most likely end up purchasing another jar in a few months!

I loved using this during

I loved using this during my pregnancy. I always used it right after showering, after patting dry and before getting out of the humid shower. It helped the balm spread further and absorb better.

This is it

I try to only use this post shower. I am not a frequent shower user throughout a week. Take that as you will. But it helps conserve the contents of the pot as your pregnancy progresses. As your pregnancy progresses the surface area increases and the demand for use increases for me down my legs too. This stuff works so well. Keeps my skin super hydrated. And my midwife comments all the time about how soft and smooth my skin is when she is feeling for baby's position
