Gentle but effective skincare for kids

When it comes to children, skincare can be a bit tricky. While we want to ensure that their skin remains clear and blemish free, we want the product to be as delicate as a newborn's touch.

Ettenio has formulated such a product with their new Be gentle 100 per cent vegan soap.

"Our Be Gentle is great for both baby's delicate skin and adults with extremely sensitive skin," Ettenio's founder Antoinette Palmer-Davis told Flair.

The soap is made with 100 per cent pure virgin olive oil with a creamy texture that is made to gently moisturise and soothe the skin as it also has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.




Ettenio's gentle moisturising and hypoallergenic properties also help to relieve terrible diaper rashes that causes discomfort to our little bundles of joy. This new addition to this local beauty line is also found to soothe minor cuts and scrapes and relieves dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

While Ettenio does not have a specific baby line, they do keep children in mind when creating some of their products as it pertains to their hair care.

Their cutting-edge collection is formulated with nature's herbs and essential oils that detangle, intensely hydrate, and nourish hair and scalp leaving the hair silky soft, tangle-free, and manageable. It also prevents all those snags that every child fears and every adult hates. Palmer-Davis added that it makes soft, silky and manageable hair for your baby within reach.

Ettenio's Wheat Germ and Honey Moisturising Shampoo cleanses the hair while protecting each strand. Specially formulated with vitamins, botanicals, and honey, this sulphate-free shampoo keeps the cuticles together and improves manageability, while gently cleansing the hair. Making it a strong fighter for hair but gentle enough for children.

Do not forget to follow up with the Moisture Reign Conditioner which imparts moisture, excellent for wet combing, spring and body, softness and manageability to your baby's hair, leaving it exceptionally smooth and sleek. Tangles and knots are things of the past, as our Free At Last Detangling Leave-In treatment, gently untangles hair, allowing easy comb through, while conditioning the hair.

Never let your little one go to bed without their special night time routine. Their Mangoshea Moisturiser helps to keep frizz at bay and keep hair shiny from root to tip. Remember to always use a sealant to help lock in the moisture and the Seal and Shine Serum is a great addition.
