PURE IS BEST
I am no beauty blogger and I am definitely not a skin care expert but I do have a passion overall wellness for our minds & bodies and our skin and personal care and that of our kids should be included in that.
To be honest when Pure Papaya connected me to collaborate with them I wasn't quiet sure how I could help them because like I said Im not a beauty blogger but I was convinced that I could help spread their important message to Mummies after reading just this one simple line -
"Pure Papaya uses only the best natural ingredients and doesn’t have any hidden nasties, unlike other papaya ointments which are 96% petroleum jelly."
So, I have done some reading on Pure Papaya care to find out more about their products and share them with you because no-one should be rubbing petroleum jelly on their lips or into their skin particularly their babies skin if you use ointment as nappy rash cream.
PURE Papaya care has been developed by Daniel Baden a naturopath of 30 years who says he created this product after seeing the long term effects of what personal care products that contain harsh chemicals can do.
This product is made of completely natural ingredients which are combined to soothe, moisturise and protect your skin. It is not tested on animals and contains no palm oil.
The thing that stands out to me the most is that it contains NO petrochemicals. After reading about petrochemicals I realise how important this is for our skin's health.
Pure mindfully chose 5 main ingredients to produce their ultra-nourishing ointment. Not only will you find Papaya extract but also calendula flower which promotes blood flow and promotes healing, shea butter too reduce inflammation and increase moisturisation, Macadamia oil to rehydrate and jojoba oil to sooth itching and dryness. This combination is what makes Pure the superior choice.
"Pure is petrochemical free. That’s important for your skin’s health. Petroleum creates a barrier that inhibits the skin’s ability to breathe and re-balance. This can increase your toxic load.Pure replaces chemicals with a rich natural formulation made from 100% natural skin friendly ingredients." - P'ure Papaya website.
So what can you use this tube of goodness for?
Lip ointment or balm of dry lips or just to keep them soft and smooth (my new fave!!)
Nappy Rash cream to soothe babies redness. (has come in handy with Millies recent teething nappy rash)
Nipple cream - apply after feeding to protect or soothe nipples.
Cradle cap to help provide relief.
After Laser treatment ointment.
So what's my thoughts?
I have been using this ointment as my every day lip balm to protect and soothe my dry lips as we head in to the winter months and I can honestly say I have been converted. I always found with other brands it was as if instead of fixing the problem my lips continually got drier which meant I was continually having to put more and more on which I now understand why - because of the petroleum!
FOR BABY (Millie):
When Millie teethes she gets hit hard including the worst nappy rash. After speaking to my GP and pharmacist about what works best to help nappy rash I now know the only thing that helps is creating a barrier between their skin and their poo's and wee's (glamorous - I know) so I have been using Papaya ointment to create that barrier which has been working really well and doesn't seem to sting as much when applied compared to other creams.
From day 1 it has always been super important to me to use natural ingredients on Millie's skin and it seems to have worked as she has never had any rash or irritations on her skin besides from when she it teething.
