KENNEBUNK, Maine, May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for summer, Tom's of Maine offers parents two natural alternatives for protecting baby's skin - pediatrician-tested sunscreen and diaper cream. The products are part of the Tom's of Maine Baby bath and skin care portfolio and are created with effective, purposeful formulas and a "fewest ingredients possible" approach.
A pioneer in natural personal care for more than 45 years, Tom's of Maine believes what's inside a product matters and formulated the new hypoallergenic baby products with input from parents. The formulas focus on gentle ingredients and no phthalates, parabens, phenoxyethanol or artificial ingredients. After three years of testing, including the development of a proprietary natural preservative system, the full line includes:
- Tom's of Maine Baby Sunscreen – only five ingredients in total, including broad spectrum SPF 30 through zinc oxide, ensure baby has safe and effective protection against those warm summer rays. The sunscreen is also non-nano and water resistant up to 80 minutes.
- Tom's of Maine Baby Diaper Cream - this fragrance-free formula with only six ingredients, including zinc oxide, sunflower seed oil and vitamin E, seals out wetness to help treat and prevent diaper rash.
- Tom's of Maine Baby Shampoo & Wash - gentle enough for everyday use and safe for delicate skin and without the use of the artificial ingredients found in most conventional body washes.
- Tom's of Maine Baby Moisturizing Lotion – only naturally-derived, purposeful ingredients, including shea butter and aloe, help moisturize baby's skin with no artificial preservatives.
Also available is Tom's of Maine Toddler Training Toothpaste (for ages 3 months and up). The fluoride free toothpaste has no artificial flavors, no artificial sweeteners like saccharin, no artificial dyes and no propylene glycol.
"Having a baby really inspires many new parents to take their healthy lifestyle to a new level," said Liz Eddy, brand manager at Tom's of Maine and mom of two. "Parents can be overwhelmed with the options for baby bath and skin care, which makes it so important to know what's inside. In some cases, our baby products have half the number of ingredients found in other brands."
The full Tom's of Maine Baby line is now available at online retailers including Amazon.com and Walmart.com. Product packaging is recyclable through the Tom's of Maine TerraCycle Recycling Program, which collects oral and personal care product packaging and recycles it into useful products like picnic tables and park benches to prevent waste from reaching landfills.
Tom's of Maine gives 10% of profits back to helping communities, including nonprofits dedicated to helping families and children.
