Bathing the kids can be a great fun activity but when we’re using the wrong products then it’s no longer fun. Being a parent, I always opt for products that are safe without harmful chemicals. Reason being, kids have rather sensitive skin and we do want to keep it silky smooth. One of my favourite product is from Buds Organics. Understanding the needs of a parent, they introduced ‘Buds for Kids’ organic range. This year, they revamp the packaging and introduces two new fruity shower gel scents namely Raspberry and Tutty Fruity.
I bet the kids will fall in love with the new packaging featuring four adorable new fuzzy monsters, guaranteed to make bath time a fun and memorable experience. You might not be aware that Buds Organics is a homegrown Malaysian brand born from a loving parent’s passion to protect his kids from all the harmful chemicals.
Most parents are not aware that conventional cleaning products contain chemicals which are too harsh for young babies and children. This leads to parents allowing their kids to use adult shower gels thus unintentionally exposing them to harsh chemicals from a very young age. Hence, Buds Organics makes it their priority to bring parents’ attention to their children’s sensitive skin.
At the event, Dr.Amir Hamzah Dato’Abdul Latif (Head of Allergy & Immunology Centre, Pantai Hospital, and the President of Malaysian Society of Allergy and Immunology (MSAI) shed some light on the topic of children’s skin. HOW prolonged exposure to harsh chemicals is bad for the children.
Understanding Labels: No More Nasties
Buds Organics encourages parents to have a proper look at the ingredient labels at the back of shower gel and shampoo bottles. One ingredient stands out amongst the rest is ‘Sodium Lauryl Sulfate’, usually disguised as ‘SLS’, a common chemical found in most cleaning products like shampoo, soap, shower gels, detergents, mouthwash, and toothpaste. It has corrosive properties (which is why it is used in floor and dish detergents!) and is a proven skin and eye irritant!
ECOCERT: A Promise to Parents
To reassure parents that the products are fully and truly organic, the products are sent for extremely stringent checks twice a year by ECOCERT – one of the most recognised organic certification bodies in the world. Submission to ECOCERT is a promise to parents that Buds Organics products contain a minimum of 95% certified-organic plant based ingredients. For instance, instead of using artificial perfume to fragrance the shampoos and shower gels, only the purest natural essential oils are used. Buds Organics was the first Asian brand to be recognised by ECOCERT to have a full range of certified organic personal skin and hair care products.
Guest speaker Mary Anne Loh, founder of Wishing Star Malaysia, a platform where members of the public come together to realise the wishes and bucket lists of kids with terminal diseases. She shared her unwavering support for Buds throughout the years and how Buds has been with her kids especially through all their challenges with severe skin sensitivity. It was touching when we found out children from Wishing Star were invited by Buds Organics to join in the fun and spend the day at KidZania.
‘Name The Monster’ Contest
In celebration of their new look, Buds for Kids is holding a contest via Facebook to allow kids to name all four of the monsters featured on the product bottles from 28 September 2017 to 31 October 2017.
