Choosing products for you and your family doesn’t have to be difficult. We’ve got the answers to the most frequently asked questions right here, so you don’t have to spend hours scouring the net for online advice.
Can Gaia Natural Baby products be used on newborns?
YES! The entire range of products is suitable for all age groups and can most definitely be used on new born babies (including premature babies once they are old enough to have a bath).
Gaia Natural Baby products aren’t just limited to babies. Our customers love the range for its pure and gentle ingredients. Be it premmies, toddlers, kids, teens, adults or elderly who have sensitive skin, this collection can be used by all.
What if my baby has eczema? Can we still use Gaia?
YES! Gaia Natural Baby is made with the finest natural extracts and is rich with certified organic ingredients to provide you with pure and gentle baby skin care for your little one.
This collection provides you with a product that is free from ingredients that are known to trigger dryness, itchiness and irritations. Instead, our products are enriched with moisturising, calming, softening and soothing plant extracts to keep your baby's skin soft, supple and free of irritation.
For ultra-sensitive skin, it’s always good to test patch new products on a small area of skin before daily usage.
Are pure essential oils ideal for baby’s skin?
YES! Gaia Natural Baby has a very subtle scent that has been created using Certified Organic Lavender, Chamomile and Sweet Orange pure essential oils. The concentration of our pure essential oils is half of what the recommended amount to ensure that your baby is not bombarded by smells.
Aromatherapy is the art and science of using oils extracted from aromatic plants to enhance health, beauty and wellbeing.
Many other products on the market utilise essential oils and fragrant oils that are not pure but instead synthetic – a big cause of skin irritation. Here at Gaia, we only use pure essential oils so you can keep your worries at bay.
What does Certified Organic ingredients mean?
Organic farming uses techniques that preserve our environment and keep the soil as healthy as it can be. They do not use synthetic fertilisers, herbicides, pesticides and chemicals or any other substances that are harmful to soil, water, wildlife, human life or the environment.
Gaia lists every single ingredient used and label the certified organic ingredients specifically so you know exactly what goes in. This ensures that the organic ingredients are following stringent guidelines for their certification. All certified organic ingredients that we use are sourced from reputable certified farms and carry the appropriate certifications - Australian Certified Organic (ACO) by the BFA of Australia.
Why do we do this? We live on a certified organic farm and understand the hard work that goes into ensuring we comply and can prove we have met with the stringent guidelines associated with the certification process.
We don't want to give you any false information about our organic content. Many companies market their products as being organic when in fact they only have a very small percentage of organic ingredients in their formulations. We pride ourselves on not using misleading information in our marketing.
Why does Gaia Natural Baby ensure that all ingredients are stated?
By law, you do not have to disclose any ingredient that is used under 1% in your concentration. This can make choosing products stressful for parents trying to avoid certain ingredients that irritate or dry their little one's skin.
ALL ingredients used in all Gaia products are listed on our labels assuring you of our purity and commitment to providing you with pure and gentle products.
Aren’t organic products common nowadays?
As the organic movement grows in momentum, some companies tend to exaggerate their use of organic ingredients for the purpose of marketing their products.
Often, companies claim that their products are 99% certified organic ingredients or have fully certified organic skincare.
In reality, these companies may be referring to one or two of their products containing those levels and not their entire product range.
At Gaia, we take care NOT to deceive you by providing factual information and marketing strategies for all of our products.
