Looking for Safe Skincare products even for Preemies? Try Mustela!!!

As I have shared in previous blog posts, my son spent a week in the ICU after birth. He is a preemie and I saw him fight for his life which was one of the scariest moments of my life. 




Now that he is out of the hospital, I try to give him the safest care I could provide and meticulously examine all products I use on him - whether it be his nappies or the skincare brand he uses.

Since I am on a roll in trying the best Mom and Baby brands in the market, I had to get my hands on the #1 baby's skincare in pharmacy brand in Europe - Mustela!



Overview

Mustela has been dubbed the skincare expert for babies and mothers-to-be for over 60 years. They guarantee products which are safe for mom and baby, are made of natural ingredients, and are designed to minimize environmental impact.

Here are the commitments of Mustela to their clients:

  • Proven effectiveness at the cutting edge of dermatological research
Developed in partnership with international reputed researchers and dermatologists, Mustela skincare is perfectly suitable for the specific needs of babies and mothers-to-be's skin. Tested during clinical assessments or usage tests under dermatological and paediatric supervision, Mustela products guarantee scientifically proven efficacy.

  • Guaranteed safety
For more than 60 years, safety has been Mustela's first commitment. Developed in collaboration with healthcare professionals within a demanding formulation charter, all Mustela skincare products are hypoallergenic, high tolerance from birth on (including newborns out of the NICU), and are free of paraben, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, alcohol, chlorphenesin, and essential oils.
They also guarantee the traceability of their ingredients and products starting from the suppliers to the points of sale. 

  • Ever more natural skincare
Because the plant world has infinite resources for the care of delicate skin, Mustela gives priority to ingredients of natural origin in all products: Mustela bebe skincare products now contain 92% ingredients of natural origin on average.

  • Unique and pleasant product to use
Mustela pays special attention to the development of enjoyable textures and gentle olfactory notes for a unique pleasure of use. The inimitable Mustela bebe skincare fragrance transforms each gesture of care into moments of well-being and gentle awakening of the senses

  • An eco-friendly brand
Because taking care of our children also means protecting the world in which they live, all Mustela skincare products are designed to minimize their environmental impact. For example, all Mustela bottles are 100% recyclable, any cardboard used is sourced from sustainably-managed forests, prints are made using vegetable oil inks, and Mustela bebe foaming products are biodegradable.
Concrete actions are also done to reduce the use of plastic, paper, and cardboard for packaging (recyclable recipients, deletion of inserts, etc.)

What we love about these Mustela products
  • Gentle on baby's skin and safe even for newborns from the NICU
Since our son was placed in the NICU, we were meticulous on what products would be safe for him since he was born premature. Thankfully their products are safe to be used even by the littlest babies. 
  • Safe for the environment
  • Comes in travel size packs (like what I have in this review) which makes it more affordable
