Love song to the earth

Makeup artist Hester Van Overbeek brings you her favourite organic kids and baby skincare products.

“Organic kids skincare has come a long way over the last few years. Gone are the grainy, bland formulas and in are beautifully branded natural kids skincare products you will want to steel for yourself!

Most products are marketed for baby skincare but you can use these special formulated creams and shampoos on any age group. Products that are not natural and organic can irritate your child’s skin and exacerbate dry skin or eczema. Organic and natural products leave all the natural skin oils and goodness intact, and most of them have a soft delicate fragrance. I recon you will end up using them as much for yourself as you do for your offspring!”
