Natural Baby Care Products

Babies symbolize everything that is pure, fresh, and beautiful. How could anyone resist the temptation of nuzzling a newborn’s soft and smooth skin? But a baby’s skin is also very delicate and is ultra-thin. It has a larger surface area in comparison to an adults’ (owing to lower body weight) and can absorb irritants, pollutants, and toxins more easily! Regular use of cosmetic products that have spurious chemicals in them can cause serious health conditions in the adult years of the infant. So, it is imperative to use safe and healthy baby care products.


 

Advantages of natural baby care

A baby’s skin is soft, supple and blemish-free. Skin has two layers – dermis, the bottom layer and epidermis, the top layer.  Epidermis is still developing and is thin and has smaller cells. Her skin is vulnerable to irritation, bacterial infection, acne and diaper rash. Cleaning the skin and maintaining moisture level is important but using cleansers and moisturizers laden with chemicals can only aggravate the condition… Go-Nayked offers you a large variety of natural baby care products to choose from on our online marketplace. Take a peek at healthy baby care products!

Baby Wipes: Diapers are a boon when it is baby’s day out! But diapers can also cause rashes and leave your baby’s skin sore. It is important to cleanse baby’s bottoms with safe and gentle wipes that are free of chemicals and fragrances. Using natural baby wipes can soothe and moisturize baby’s sensitive skin. Here are two of the baby wipes approved by Go-Nayked:

Jackson Reece All-Natural Unscented Baby Wipes: Award-winning baby wipes enriched with the natural goodness of aloe, essential oils and tea tree oil, these non-toxic and unscented baby wipes are made of biodegradable cloth. They are hypoallergenic and are soothing and gentle on the baby’s skin.

OsoCozy Flannel Baby Wipes (Unbleached): Made of 100% pure cotton, these wipes are eco-friendly, affordable, washable and reusable. These non-toxic baby wipes are highly absorbent and are the best bet to clean up any mess!

Cleanser: Babies have a sensitive skin and there is an increased risk of infections, irritation and bacterial growth. Some common skin ailments in babies and toddlers are diaper rash, baby acne and cradle cap. These conditions can be prevented by following a daily regimen of thoroughly cleaning your child’s skin with a natural cleanser. Protect your child with these Go Nayked-recommended cleansers:

Dr. Bronner’s Fair Trade & Organic Liquid Castile Soap: This biodegradable soap is also vegan. It is a natural soap that is gentle on sensitive skin and is ideal for babies. It contains olive oil. This Castile soap is vegetable based and unscented.

Ava Anderson Non-Toxic Baby Body Wash and Shampoo: This is an organic and non-toxic body wash and shampoo. It has organic oils of coconut, lavender and Shea that gently cleanse and sooth sensitive skin and hair of babies. It is also suitable for all ages and skin types.

Diapers & Diaper Cream: If only babies could talk, they’d tell you how they hate wearing diapers and how they wish to just be! Since babies typically have their diapers on throughout the day, they often develop rashes due to friction and constant contact with urine and feces. Chemicals, drying agents, fragrances and dyes in some disposable diapers can trigger allergic reaction in infants. The bottom line (no pun intended!) is – Go Nayked. Our marketplace offers a choice of safe and chemical-free diapers and diaper cream. Here are a couple of them.

The Honest Company Diapers: These are hypoallergenic diapers that are environmentally friendly. There are 44 diapers of size 1 in a pack. They are chlorine-free and have no fragrance.

Badger- Baby Zinc Oxide Diaper Cream: This is a certified organic and natural mineral ointment for treating diaper rash effectively. The product is certified by pediatrician and contains pharmaceutical grade Zinc Oxide.

Sunscreen: Babies do need Vitamin D from sunlight but it is equally important to protect their tender and sensitive skin from harmful UVA and UVB radiations. Sunscreens available in the market often contain toxic chemicals and artificial ingredients that can be easily absorbed by your baby’s skin and pose a serious threat to her health. Learn more in this article. Thankfully, Go-Nayked provides you with safer alternatives. Here’s one…

Adorable Baby – Sunscreen Stick: Made of few natural and organic ingredients, this sunscreen protects your baby from UVA and UVB radiations. It contains safe mineral, Zinc Oxide. The product is approved by EWG and Go-Nayked!

Primal Life Organics – Back to the Roots of Skin Care

The skin care industry has a lot of choices to offer us; products could be natural, non-toxic, chemical-free, vegan, or more recently, Paleo… hold on, Paleo (diet) sounds familiar but Paleo skin care? Yes, you read that right! The word Paleo means “ancient, early, prehistoric, and primitive”. Paleo skin care regimen is gaining popularity as it involves using natural ingredients in their raw and fresh state to nourish and heal skin, just as it was in primal methods. Go-nayked.com introduces you to Primal Life Organics, a company featured in our marketplace. It specializes in Paleo skin care products that are in pristine state and of impeccable quality.


Commercial Skin Care vs. Paleo Skin Care

Commercial skin care products typically include one or more of the following chemicals: Parabens as preservatives, Polyethylene glycol (PEG), Phthalates as solvents, FD&C pigments and colors, Benzoyl peroxide in acne products, and DEA, MEA, TEA as foam boosters. These chemicals are linked to cancer, skin allergies, birth defects, infertility and learning disabilities.
Mother Nature has endowed us with an abundance of fresh ingredients. Several ancient civilizations across the globe have used natural products to heal and nourish skin. Paleo skin care uses the healthiest food sources for the body that are real and natural. The Paleo logic is simple: If something is safe enough to eat, then it should be safe to use it on your skin too, and vice versa. It is fresh, organic, gluten-free, non-toxic, vegan, and, it works!

Primal Life Organics –The Fresh Concept

Most of the skin care products that are mass-manufactured are loaded with a profusion of artificial preservatives to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold in the product. The potent, healing powers claimed of such ‘natural’ products (fortified with toxic preservatives) bought off a store shelf are debatable indeed!

In contrast, the shelves are always empty of products at Primal Life Organics! Why so? It is because they only stock up the ingredients. All products are made fresh, on order. A product that is made has already been sold! So, there is no necessity to add preservatives. The products are veritable powerhouses of nutrition because their sources are fresh and real.

Hallmarks of Primal Life Organics

Fresh and real – these are the hallmarks of Paleo skin care, as advocated by Primal Life Organics. “Our skin is programmed to recognize and respond to natural ingredients that are healing and safe.” By using fresh and real Paleo products, you can eliminate the harmful chemicals in the other skin care products. This will give you the opportunity to realize the magic of Primal Life Organics on your skin and your long-term health! The products are suitable for all types of skin.

Primal Life Organics was created by Trina Felber, an experienced nurse who is passionate about her commitment to develop skincare products that use only fresh, natural ingredients that were used by our primal ancestors. Fully aware of the dangers posed by chemical cosmetics, Trina envisioned this pristine line of skin care products that can help you live non-toxic, naturally!

Stay Calm and Shop Nayked with a Nayked Santa Gift Exchange

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Christmakkah, Kwanzaa, or Festivus with the rest of us, there is much to be joyful about during the holidays. For many of us though, this joy quickly disappears when the festivities end. All of the spending, cooking, and back-to-back events can leave us feeling physically and financially depleted. At GO-NAYKED.com we can’t take away the stress of dealing with your mother-in-law or your creepy uncle Larry (we’re sorry we wish we could). We can however, help you save time, money, and your health with a Go-Nayked Santa Gift Exchange.


 

Are you familiar with Secret Santa: that awkward holiday tradition where members of a group are randomly assigned to a person for whom they must buy a gift? If you are, you know that these gift exchanges are a great way to save money, but you’ve probably also given or received at least one awful gift. Don’t make that mistake this year, scrap the Secret Santa and organize a Nayked Santa Gift Exchange instead, using the simple tools and features at the GO-NAYKED.com marketplace.

Search the Site to get started; have each person in your group choose items that they love from our selection of safe, natural products. Are you hoping to receive natural lipstick but aren’t sure what specific brand or colour you want? Simply navigate through the intuitive search categories to find all of the options and pick your favourite one. Or you can type lipstick into the search bar, and all of the related products will appear.

Shareable Wish-lists are the perfect way to organize a gift exchange. Once each person in your group has chosen their favourite products, they can add each one to their own customizable wish-list, and then share that list with the rest of the members in the group. We all know that making a list and checking it twice is one of the first steps to successful gift giving, and these lists will ensure that no one receives a gift that they don’t want.

Shop from your phone while you wait. Waiting is annoying at the best of times and it’s downright aggravating around the holidays. Our marketplace makes it easy to purchase products right from your phone, so you can buy your Nayked Santa present while you’re waiting in line for your morning coffee, instead of battling the masses at the mall.

Use the price range filter to set your limit and spend within it. One of the greatest causes of stress during the holidays is overspending and the best way to avoid this is to create a budget and stick to it. Set a spending limit on your Nayked Santa gift exchange to help you stick to your budget. You can then filter all of the products that are above (or below) that limit from your search, eliminating the risk of over spending.

We all have a limited amount of patience, don’t waste yours battling crazed shoppers at the mall or trying to figure out what to buy the co-worker you barely know. You have enough to worry about without that nonsense. Instead, lighten your load by hosting a Go-Nayked Santa Gift Exchange.

Aquarella – Natural Nail Polish

If you are heading for a manicure at your neighborhood Nail Spa, you should read this post. Even if you are not, read this anyway, for it concerns your health and wellness.


 

The Environment Working Group (EWG) has stated that it would review and update the science related to the chemical called, Triphenyl phosphate (TPHP) which is commonly used in nail polishes and nail treatments. This chemical could contribute to obesity and disruption of the endocrine system. TPHP is used as a fire retardant in foam furniture and is used to make plastics. Is there an alternative? You don’t have to bite your nails in nervous anticipation, for there is Aquarella – the all-natural nail polish!

www.GO-NAYKED.com brings to you, Aquarella nail polish. It symbolizes all that is natural and pure.

What do egg whites, gelatin, beeswax and gum Arabic have in common? They were the natural ingredients nail polishes were made of in ancient China. The Egyptian upper class had their nails painted with natural henna to a brownish red. Ever the trend-setter, Cleopatra popularized the use of plant extracts to paint the nails red. The Aztecs used natural dyes to decorate their nails. So, when did the shift from natural ingredients to toxic chemicals take place? With commercialization, as always! Aquarella aims to create nail polishes that are rooted in nature. Their products will take you back to an era where everything was better with nothing!

Nail Polish Better with Nothing

A typical nail polish will have a plethora of chemicals in it. A film-forming polymer, petrochemical solvents, plasticizers, dyes and pigments, opalescent pigments such as mica and aluminum powder for the shimmer and shine, adhesive polymers that ensure that the film adheres to the surface of the nail, ultraviolet stabilizer like benzophenone-1, and a thickening agent. Overwhelming? We are just talking about the base coat here. There’s a top coat too! According to studies by the EWG, toxic TPHP can be absorbed by your body and cause hormonal disturbance, reproductive disorders and developmental problems. Is everything bad and nothing good about these chemicals-laden nail polishes? Often, truth can be hard as nails!

Aquarella comes to you in pristine condition. It uses water as the solvent. It is engineered with a safe co-polymer structure. Aquarella is free of odor, has excellent shine, dries fast, and does not need two coats. Most importantly, it has no harmful chemicals and hence, has no adverse impact on your nail and cuticle. Since it is virtually odorless, you can save yourself from the stench of petrochemicals! With water as its solvent, Aquarella contains no questionable ingredients. It is non-toxic and non-inflammable. What’s more, it doesn’t need a drying station! It dries within 5-10 minutes of application, and you are good to go!

Who can use Aquarella? Everyone! People who suffer from allergy and sensitivity to chemicals will benefit the most. There have been a mere ten documented cases of allergies in as many years! Pregnant women, patients suffering from asthma or cancer, the environmentally aware, teenagers and even children can use Aquarella.

All products of the brand are available for immediate purchase from our marketplace, www.GO-NAYKED.com. We try in earnest to bring the best and the most responsibly manufactured products to our community. Help us support this cause.

Deodorant facts you didn’t want to know Part 2

Welcome back! You have taken the right decision to switch to natural deodorants that are non-toxic and are devoid of hidden chemicals. GoNayked.com applauds your choice and is committed to helping you choose well!



We had started off with a list of toxic ingredients that are commonly found in deodorants. Here are a few more chemicals to watch out for.

Phthalates
Listed as a cryptic string of alphabets (to laymen), phthalates are responsible for the sweet scent of the deodorant. Look out for DHP, DBP5, dibutyl phthalates and DEHP. They can affect fetal development and the reproductive system itself.

TEA and DEA
Trietanolamine and Diethanolamine. They don’t sit on the tongue easily, do they? Why then, should they sit on your skin all day, every day? These toxins can seep into your skin and impair your kidneys and liver. Europe has banned the use of this carcinogen.

 

So, would you rather sweat and stink than have a daily dose of toxins enter your body, via a deodorant? It would be quite a task to search for and isolate toxin-free deodorants, and harder still to sniff test each of them! Moreover, natural deodorants have always been viewed (read smelled) with skepticism. How could something mild, gentle, and subtle, mask strong body odor?

Breathe easy! Go-Nayked.com conducted a thorough search and discovered several such products. In fact, you’d be spoiled for choice! And the great news is that many of these natural deodorants are available on our online store!

1. Soapwalla Deodorant Cream
It’s not a chalky stick or a dripping roll-on, but a cream! It is a creamy combination of vegetable powders, tea tree oils, lavender, clays and peppermint. It is of frosting-like consistency and is suitable for all types of skin.

2. Lavanila the Healthy Deodorant
A special product from a renowned company, this deodorant is available only in specialty stores or online. Its Vanilla Lavender scent lends an air of sophistication!

3. The Honest Company Deodorant
Made with certified organic ingredients, this deodorant spray comes in refreshing fragrance of Bergamot and Sage, which is a delicate and noninvasive scent. Many more fragrances are available.

4. Weleda Sage Deodorant
This deodorant is particularly suitable for travel because it does not have an aerosol pump. It has revitalizing sage leaf oil and tea tree oil. It is a unisex deodorant that can last the day.
