Gentle Naturals Baby Therapeutics Review

This review was originally posted earlier this year - I found it in the web archives so I'm re-posting it now.

If you've had a baby or know about babies, then you should know that babies can experience minor problems such as cradle cap, eczema, and more. I know how those can get sometimes. When my girls were little, they had cradle cap pretty bad and I never seemed to get rid of it completely. My son in 10 months old now and I am dealing with the same thing with him. It’s not as bad as it was with my girls, but I still try to get rid of it by using baby oil and a small brush. It seems to work a little bit but within a couple days, it’s back.

When I received products from Gentle Naturals and found one of them to be the Cradle Cap Treatment, I couldn't wait to try it out. That same night I gave Junior a bath and we tried the treatment. I couldn't have been happier to open the box and find a small, soft brush included. I've always found brushing off cradle cap to be a pain and my kids didn't like it. It would make their head a little red and would get fussy after a couple minutes. Let me tell you, my son had no problem letting me massage his head with the soft brush. 

The Cradle Cap Treatment had a great smell too (while I was using it). For some reason I thought it had a cucumber scent but I didn't find anything in the ingredients that would cause this scent. After I finished brushing the scales off, I washed his hair like usual and dried him up. After his hair completely dried, I noticed his hair smelled like Manuka honey. I didn't find anything in the ingredients of the Cradle Cap Treatment that could cause this either but I have a few products made with Manuka honey and they smell very similar. After smelling the bottle a few times, I still think it has the same scent. Maybe it’s the flower extracts; I can’t be completely sure. Either way, I enjoy the smell but it’s an odd smell to leave on a child’s head.

Cradle Cap Treatment Details

  •  Unique brush and lotion combination kit
  • Gently and effectively removes crusty scales
  • Soothing, moisturizing, and non-greasy
  • Made with natural ingredients – calendula and vitamins D and E
  • 4 oz bottle

My son hasn't had a problem with eczema yet but my 6 year old has. She gets eczema on her arms very often and she ends up scratching them so bad sometimes they bleed a little. I've tried using products to help with itching and other products to specifically help eczema, but they never seem to help. It was really nice to be able to try the Eczema Relief Wash and Eczema Relief Cream. Both of these products are for babies also, but I see no problem using it on my 6 year old.  

The Eczema Relief Cream is a new formula and it provides relief of dry and itchy skin caused by eczema. It leaves the hands a bit greasy so you’ll definitely need to wash them after applying. My daughter likes this cream – she kept asking for it. I’m glad I have something to use that will work when her eczema breaks out. Same goes with the Eczema Relief Wash – I will definitely be using it more once her eczema breaks out more. The wash is a bit different than other washes – with this wash you just pour a few capfuls into baby’s bath. It has a very pleasant scent as well. It’s very calming and my daughter loves it.
