Nature

The Gentle Baby Massage Oil, as its name suggests, is gentle in nature, making it the ideal massage oil for a baby's sensitive skin — or anybody's sensitive skin for that matter. This botanical oil infusion is a gentle body oil for delicate skin or a massage oil for little humans.

Properties

MCT oil's lauric acid has antibacterial properties making it appropriate for use on parts prone to nappy rash. It's also hydrating for the skin.

Palo santo is rich in antioxidants; calendula for its flavonoids and triterpenoids (namely quercetin and oleanic acid); these promote overall skin health and offer skin nourishment to particularly sensitive skin.

Argan oil is rich in caffeic acid (an antioxidant) and is easily absorbed by the skin.

Chamomile, lavender and Palo santo work together synergistically for aromatherapy purposes to calm and sooth the senses.

Extractions

Medera has prepared three oil infusions for Gentle Baby Massage Oil; Palo santo-infused MCT oil, chamomile-infused MCT oil and calendula-infused MCT oil.

These are prepared by macerating the herbs in MCT oil at a constant controlled temperature for a period of time. Low temperatures ensure neither the oils nor the phytochemicals are damaged in processing. Imagine it like a cup of tea, but with oil instead of water.

All botanicals included in Gentle Baby Massage Oil are safe to use on babies and sensitive skin. However, please make sure to spot test before using all over the body.
