Friday Feature #11

As you may have noticed, I am working hard to do something about the palm oil industry at the moment. I wrote previously about the fact that I am starting a palm oil free marketplace

So when I find a great product that is palm oil free, I’m keen to spread the word about it. Today I want to tell you about Baby Bath Bombs.

These gorgeous little bath bombs are made specially with children in mind. They are natural, palm oil free, allergen free, vegan, not tested on animals and fine for delicate skin.

They are suitable for babies from three months old and they are absolutely cute as a button.

My girls were lucky enough to be sent some of these to try. They adored them and I loved putting them in the bath knowing that not only were they great for the children’s skin, but they were ethical and natural. 

For us, the bath bombs arrived at just the right time. Lia was a little bit funny about getting in the bath tonight. She usually loves water, both in the bath and swimming but today she just wasn’t too happy about it. 

Dropping a fizzy little duck into the water was the ideal distraction and she soon forgot her little wobble. As for Libby, she adores bath bombs and can’t believe her luck at having a whole pot of them. 

Another thing I love about the baby bath bombs company is that they donate a percentage of all their sales to charity. One of the charities they support is Made in a Free World, who are working to end slavery and child labour. 

The charity work with companies to ensure that the people involved in their supply chain are being treated properly. Most of us believe that slavery is a thing of the past, but sadly it isn’t. 

Made in a Free World have programs that lift people out of slavery. Additionally, they support them with the transition into a life of freedom and continue to help them to find a new way of life. 

One thing that I like about this charity is that aside from the wonderful work they do, they help companies to change instead of judging them.

They recognise the power that businesses have to change lives by choosing who they deal with, so they help them to do just that. 

Reading about this charity has made me think. I rarely buy clothes from high street stores because of the way they are made.

I don’t intend to change this approach, but helping a company to change is much more admirable than refusing to buy from them and getting annoyed about their policies. 

I am also guilty of bad mouthing companies for their policies, whereas maybe I could do more to help them to change. 

I do like a blog post that makes me think.

    Hi Natalie, now who wouldn’t want to bath when there’s a cute looking duck fizzing away in there!

    These sound really great, it’s important that people start to use more natural ingredients as there are far too many chemicals being used in everyday things. And products like this that are also ethically made help support good causes.

    It also does make sense to educate companies rather than boycott and bad mouth them, although people should be able to find out company practices past and present, if they are interested.
