Human Nature Baby & Kids + Plush & Play

Plush & Play's Anne Kamatis and Maria Mangga with my Human Nature goodies

A few weeks ago, my friend Anna Meloto-Wilk of Human Nature invited the SoMoms over for brunch at Mom & Tina's Libis to share with us the relaunch and new look of Human Nature’s Natural Baby Care Line, introduce their fun new products for kids and of course, pick our brains for product development. Because moms really, are like the best resource people, I swear.

First up, the new look of the Natural Baby Care Line:

 Human Nature’s Complete 3-Step Baby Care Line includes Step 1: Natural Baby Wash, Step 2: Natural Baby Lotion and Step 3: Baby Wonder Oil 

They've done away with the old blue & white packaging for a look that is decidedly greener also aesthetically. The inside is of course, honest to goodness green & natural.

Natural Baby Wash 99.3% Natural (P 289.75 for 500ml; P 129.75 for 200ml; P 44.75 for 50ml) is free from harmful chemicals such as SLS and SLES, and is perfectly safe to use on baby’s delicate skin. Touches of lavender, rosemary, and chamomile help calm and relax your baby from top to toe.

Natural Baby Lotion 100% Natural (P 129.75 for 200ml; P 44.75 for 50ml) is perfect for nourishing and moisturizing baby’s skin, which is ten times more sensitive than ours. This 100% Natural Baby Lotion is made with a medley of sunflower oil, avocado oil and aloe vera. Completely free from harmful chemicals like silicone and parabens, it contains natural glycerin that gently seals in moisture for healthy skin that’s baby-soft and supple.

Natural Baby Wonder Oil 100% Natural (P 129.75 for 100ml) Made with premium-grade sunflower oil, it’s gentle and safe to use for infant massage, a crucial step for baby’s development as it stimulates brain nerves. It also lowers the baby’s stress level for a stronger immune system. 

The Natural Baby Wonder Oil is ideal for infant massage, helps prevent and soothe diaper rash, helps protect against skin infections, helps heal little bumps, boo-boos and insect bites and is a gentle cleanser for the ears and belly button.

Second,  bath time becomes fun with these fruity shampoos and chocolate-y soap!

Human Nature’s Kids Natural Shampoo & Body Wash comes in Ocean Apple for Girls and Tangerine Thunder for Boys. It is 96.4% Natural and 100% free from harmful chemicals, retailing for as low as P44.75 for a 50ml bottle.

Human Nature Kids Natural Kids Bath Soap is unlike any ordinary soap out there, with its yummy Chocolate scent. 100% Natural and 100% free from harmful chemicals, you also get to save yourself from bath time struggles with just P69.75.

Operating as a social enterprise, it is driven by the core philosophies of being PRO-PHILIPPINES, PRO-POOR and PRO-ENVIRONMENT.

But wait! There's more! Let me introduce to you Plush & Play's Enchanted Farm barkada:

Each character is wittily named. Apart from Anne Kamatis, there's Buko Martin and Manny Pakwan

Plush & Play is a homegrown Filipino brand that offers fun, educational and safe plush toys for infants, toddlers & children that are made from a soft & hypoallergenic fabric called Velboa.

Its founder, Fabien Courteille is a twenty-four year-old French social entrepreneur, who arrived in the Philippines in 2011 to do a 3-month internship with Gawad Kalinga (GK) Enchanted Farm. His short stint at the Farm gave him the opportunity to get to know and fall in love with the Philippines and its people.

After Fabien learned that majority of the toys in the Philippines came from China and that most of them contain toxic substances or parts (such as plastic) that pose health hazards to children, and seeing how women staying in the GK Enchanted Farm were skilled sewers but were not employed anywhere, he put two and two together, resulting in Plush & Play.

With fruit & vegetable characters wittily named Anne Kamatis, Buko Martin and such, each character tells a story that kids will enjoy and learn from, and allows children’s imagination to roam freely.
