This still remains an anxious moment every time. When a new product, after a long time tweaking and fine tuning, actually roles off the production line. Around three years ago, I began to think about developing a body cream. As, in fact, with all my products, it came about because I needed it myself. I could still find mild, fragrance free products for the body, but trying to find a cream or lotion with a balanced combination of enough antioxidants, soothing and barrier repairing substances seemed to be like trying to find the proverbial needle in the haystack. And, so, I decided to develop my own product with a firm wish list. I knew what I wanted, but could that be made…? (more…)

I’ve written more often in my blog about baby skin and baby products and the fact that as a brand new mum (or dad) you really need to have strong will power so as not to give in to the temptation of all the purple, yellow and blue bottles and jars. I am still convinced that all those strongly perfumed and irritating baby products are one of the main reasons for the increase in a number of skin problems in young children. Because amazingly but true: more than 67 percent of children up to the age of one, and around two thirds (77 percent) of children up to and including the age of five experience skin problems.
