Here is a trio of trusted products that place integrity, quality ingredients and caring above all else – which means baby benefits and parents can feel relieved.
Organic baby clothes are the bellweather of the future, and Happy Green Bee is leading the way.

The lauded Fruits & Passion line introduces the newest member of its superb roster: Bebe, a natural body care line for babies. Ultra-gentle and comprised of certified organic ingredients, the Bebe line was crafted for daily use. Sturdy, squeezable bottle and pumps in pleasing colors render taking care of baby much easier, and the citrus-powder notes envelope mom and baby in a cloud of soft scent. Organic mallow, apricot and orange blossom are included in Ultra Gentle Cleansing Foam, Moisturizing Cream, and Body and Hair Wash. Colloidal oats, organic sunflower and apricot oils grace the Oatmeal Bath Milk. Bebe products do not contain alcohol, parabens, colorants, sulphates, mineral oil or silicones.

A pair of engaging doctor-moms have debuted Baby Silk, a new line of skin care products created specifically for baby’s delicate skin. Big-hearted pediatricians Dr. Diane Truong and Dr. JJ Levenstein were inspired by the needs of their patients, and their own babies as well, to create this loving line. Vitamins E and B5 provide antioxidant protection, relive dryness, protect skin and promote healing. This hypoallergenic, clinically-tested line includes gift sets, a travel set, sunscreen towelettes, diaper rash cream, silky liquid powder, exfoliating cleanser, moisturizing balm, hair and body wash, fragrance, and belly button swabs. With adorable graphics and gentle and effective products, the Baby Silk line is destined to be appreciated for generations. No waxes, lanolin, mineral oil, petroleum or harmful chemicals are used in Baby Silk products. Find them at www.mdmoms.com.
