As board-certified pediatricians, the folks from MD Moms understand that babies aren’t miniature adults. They need special products formulated just for them, with ingredients that are gentle, pure and effective. That’s why they created Baby Silk® skin and hair products that include advanced ingredients like marine silk, botanicals, Vitamins E and B5 to provide antioxidant protection, relieve dryness, promote healing, and protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Each product also has a delicate botanical baby scent made from essential oils of orange and gala apple blossoms that’s almost as yummy as that new-baby smell. Every Baby Silk formulation is clinically tested, hypoallergenic and free of lanolin, mineral oil, petroleum, waxes, harmful chemicals and known skin irritants.
We reviewed the following Baby Silk products (descriptions provided by manufacturer):
- Baby Silk Gentle All-Over Clean Just a little bit of this delicious-smelling, tear-free hair and body wash leaves baby’s skin and hair silky smooth and smelling great. A blend of gentle ingredients that includes marine silk, aloe and Vitamins E and B5 washes away all evidence of baby’s busy day!
- Baby Silk Soothing Bottom Relief This lightweight lotion soothes on white, then turns clear to provide an invisible moisture barrier and to protect, soothe, heal and moisturize all-in-one. Based on a patented “liquid glove” formulation, a blend of marine silk, Vitamins E and B5, zinc oxide, aloe, licorice, shea butter and an antibacterial agent protect baby’s skin against irritants from dirty diapers – leaving baby’s bottom clean and dry all day.
- Baby Silk Baby Safe Sunscreen Towelettes Babysafe Sunscreen Towelettes make an outing a walk in the park. These soft wipes are saturated with a gently, sweat-proof, broad spectrum SPF 30+ physical sunscreen that’s enriched with Vitamin E and B5, marine silk, aloe and oat to protect, soothe and moisturize baby’s skin. Each wipe contains enough sunscreen to cover baby from head to toe, with no fuss and no mess. They’re a dermatologist-approved way to keep baby protected from UV rays at any age, anywhere, anytime.
One of the first and most important characteristics all of our Moms and Dads notice is ease of use! And the Baby Silk product line did not disappoint. It’s simple – if your lotions, creams or towelettes are difficult to get into while wrestling with a fidgety baby – they are no good. Baby Silk understands this – tubes have flip caps so they can be open and applied with one hand. The bottles have wide bases, so they won’t tip over. And the pumps lock so the babies couldn’t grab a sample of the body wash while you’re working. Our parents were especially pleased with the one use Sunscreen Towelettes – one towelette provides easy and safe allover application!
Think durability isn’t an issue with baby skin care products? Think again! Too often products designed for baby care put all of the attention into the product and none into the packaging. Not so with Baby Silk! The Gentle All-Over Clean bottle has a stable base to keep from tipping. And all of our parents were extremely pleased with the packaging on the Babysafe Sunscreen Towelette – it opens and re-seals easily and completely – and the packaging itself is made durable to prevent from tearing.
Warm, classic styling. All of our parents agreed that the Baby Silk line has the look and feel of high-end skin-care products designed for adults. From a visual point-of-view, with Baby Silk, you get what you pay for.
Baby Silk Gentle All-Over Clean – Our Moms and Dads added a small amount added to a moistened washcloth and let this fantastic cleaner do its job. Easy on baby’s skin and great smelling, all of our parents were pleased with how fresh and clean their babies were after a rinse.
Baby Silk Soothing Bottom Relief – Ahhhh…Our parents reported back that they could just see comfort take over their little ones rashy bottoms with a quick application. And best of all – the diaper rash cream stayed with the babies until their next changing – keeping them dry and comfortable.
Baby Silk Babysafe Sunscreen Towelettes – Pop open the package, pull out a towelette, then cover that little baby head to toe! Application is a breeze, and all of our Moms and Dads were extremely pleased with the level of protection from the sun. It didn’t sweat or rub off. This sunscreen provided a nice, even all-day protection.
The Baby Silk line of products is not inexpensive or cheap. However, on the plus side, the products accomplish exactly what they set out to do. So…we received mixed reactions from our parents. Some Moms and Dads would simply not pay what they claimed to be double the price for similar products. On the other hand – we had a larger group of parents who agreed that since the products worked so well they would not be averse to spending a few more dollars. We heard from more than one parent who said “When it comes to Baby Silk you get what you pay for.” Yes, they are a little pricier, but the extra dollars are in the performance.
There is nothing overly original about the Baby Silk line of products – but there doesn’t have to be. In fact, we think that they are just plain old refreshing – a quality line of skin-care products for little ones.
Our parents were extremely pleased with how well the Baby Silk line treated their babies. Cleaning, soothing and protecting, right on down the line our Moms and Dads felt that their really was a positive difference in using Baby Silk over regular store brand products. Enough quality to earn all five of our stars!
