How 'organic' are organic baby skincare products?

When looking for an organic range of baby and new mum skincare products for our molliemoo baby gift boxes and new mum presents. We found to our amazement that the organic beauty industry does not have to comply to any legal standards for these products. So many products ONLY need to contain 1% organic ingredients and possibility include potentially hazardous ingredients and they can still label the product "organic"!

I find this hard to believe as we all look at the front of a label and believe what it states. If it uses the word "organic" you would assume the product was completely made up of organic ingredients, but this is just not the case.

That is why we went to great lengths to find products that were made up of over 75% organic ingredients and many of the products are soil associated. (I will go into more detail about the soil association in a different blog and explain why it is so important to have this accreditation on a product)

We are selling the following organic baby and new mum skincare products:

Maclarens Baby Travel Kit £29.95 and Maclaren Travel Bag for Mother and Baby £60.00 which include products that are 100% certified organic and are soil associated. (The absorbing dusting powder can be found in both sets and this product has won the best organic baby product award at the Natural and Organic Expo 2009

In our bathtime baby gift boxes,@ £65 girls, boys and neutral we sourced Pur Babies bath wash and nappy balm, which are soil associated and certified organic.

We love these products, please take a look on our website for more details on any of the products mentioned above.

Also as always the cost of first class delivery is included in the prices above

Open Farm Sunday 13 June 2010

On Sunday 13 June 2010, an open farm day is taking place all around the country.

Its a chance for everyone to experience at first hand what it means to be a farmer and taste the produce.

Find out which farms are participating in your area at

I have five farms to choose from in my area. all offering fun activites for the children, hog roasts and a chance to meet the animals and to buy their produce.

Great fun for all the family!

I think this is a great way of promoting local food and the farmers who are passionate about their products.

Incase you are not aware, the South of England Show is taking place from 10-12 June at the South of England Centre, Ardingly, Haywards Heath, West Sussex.

We have visited this show a few times and would highly recommend it as a great family day out with show jumping & events, area displays, a farming & wildlife area, educational displays, cookery demonstrations, food hall, games, rides... and lots more...

We wanted to highlight that 'The EcoVillage' will be making its debut at the South of England Show in 2010 with over 120 exhibitors and a picnic area. This village will feature almost 100 green’ exhibitors, interactive displays, demonstrations and a picnic area.
