GAIA Natural Baby Moisturiser is non-greasy, light cream that contains certified organic shea butter and certified organic wheat germ oil, which are both great for dry, flaky skin.

Cetearyl alcohol is made from various vegetable oils such as sustainable palm and coconut. They bear little relation to common alcohol, which is a volatile liquid and quite drying.

Our products are manufactured with other products containing nuts so it's best if you do a patch test first, you can request a sample of our Bath & Body Wash and Baby Moisturiser. however we do not have any Baby Massage Oil samples available at this stage.
