The Best New Baby Bath Products

I didn’t think too hard about baby bath products during my pregnancy. I figured whatever they sold in the Baby Superstore was good enough — seeing that it’s made for a baby and all.

Yet when my brand new baby showed up with his brand new skin — untouched by chemicals or pollutants whatsoever — I started reading ingredients. Obsessively, my husband might say. (Cautiously, I would respond.) And I watched my selection pool suddenly shrink.

Years have passed and it’s still an issue in my house — so I was excited to find a box from one of my favorite baby-product companies on my doorstep, filled with my new favorite baby skincare product.

The new mum + bub skincare line from aden + anais smells as good as it is — made with an Australian “wonder fruit” called pawpaw. Pawpaw is like the Vaseline of Australia, used as a lubricant, an ointment, a skin protectant, and a natural cure-all. They teamed up with Ellen Gendler, M.D. (a dermatologist in New York City) to create this line of naturally derived, pawpaw-infused baby skincare.

And the hint of Australian sandalwood will make you want to steal the lotion for yourself. (I did.)

Because there is a hint of fragrance and the EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetic Database hasn’t tested it yet (which is my go-to source for safe products), I’m not willing to say it’s the safest, most natural baby bath wash you can use. But I can say it has an incredible formula and an even better smell. And aden + anais says that this skin care line is free of:

  • Phytoestrogen
  • Parabens
  • Added hormone disrupters
  • Petroleum oils
  • Phthalates
  • Dioxanes from sulfates
  • Gluten and soy
  • Petrochemicals
  • DEA
  • Artificial colors

It’s also made here in the U.S.

You can check out their entire mum + bub line at, and shop online ($15.95 – $28.95) or in specialty boutiques.
