Whether you are cleaning the soft folds of tiny newborn skin or scrubbing muck and dirt off your toddler, bathtime gives us the daily opportunity to reconnect with our little ones.
For the best bathtime, you need the best tools. And while natural and gentle soap get a lot of attention, the humble sponge is often overlooked. What could be wrong with a sponge? Unfortunately, lots! Typical synthetic sponges are harmful to the environment and could upset your baby’s sensitive skin. Petroleum-based ingredients, bleached cellulose, and hormone-altering chemicals all make up an innocent looking sponge. In addition to the chemicals, synthetic sponges retain dirty water, creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. And because sponges are not biodegradable, the average sponge clogs our landfills and pollute our planet. Chances are the same sponge you used to wash your baby will still be sitting in a landfill long after he or she is all grown up!
BabyCare natural sea sponges are totally different. BabyCare sea sponges are not just any sponge.
These unique sponges are hearty yet soft and just the right size for cleaning your little one. Rather than a huge chunk of sponge we cut our BabyCare sponges down to between 9 and 10 centimeters, the ideal size for thoroughly cleaning all of your babies nooks and crannies whilst holding the sponge between your fingers, instead of in the palm of your hand.
The sponge's cellular makeup is what makes it such an effective bathing tool. Don't waste your expensive natural baby wash —the sponge fibers themselves do most of the cleansing work. Spaghetti sauce faces, marker covered fingers, and sweaty newborn hair will all appreciate a gentle cleanse with this magical sponge.
The Natural Intimacy team understand your baby's needs, so we hand select the most perfect sponges. We check for optimal density, size, and softness because we know these factors affect the bathing experience.
