Human Nature

All my three kids have very sensitive skin, and suffer from varying degrees of eczema. So I am very choosy when it comes to their body wash, shampoo, lotion, and even the laundry soap… basically everything that comes into contact with their skin.

But one of the brands that I trust for my kids is Human Nature. Human Nature is the Philippines’ largest brand of natural personal care products, which are 100% made in the Philippines and 100% free from harmful chemicals. I regularly stock up on Human Nature’s Kids Natural Shampoo & Body Wash in Ocean Apple for my daughters and Tangerine Thunder for my son. Because they are 96.4% Natural and 100% free from harmful chemicals they are gentle enough on my kids’ eczema prone skin.

So when Human Heart founder, Anna Meloto-Wilk, invited the SoMoms for an intimate brunch to introduce the new and improved baby products of Human Nature, I just had to say yes because I wanted to meet the amazing lady behind the brand.

Human Nature knows that baby’s skin is ten times more sensitive than adults, that is why they make sure that their baby line is 100% free from harmful chemicals such as SLS and SLES, silicone and paraben. While I do not have babies anymore, but we still use Natural Baby Wonder Oil. The 100% Natural Baby Wonder Oil is made with premium-grade sunflower oil, and is also great for my kids who apply it right after taking a bath to help seal in the body's moisture. This has helped keep their eczema in control.

Here is the new packaging of an old favorite, their Natural Baby Care line:

Natural Baby Wash 99.3% Natural (P 289.75 for 500ml; P 129.75 for 200ml; P 44.75 for 50ml)
Natural Baby Lotion 100% Natural (P 129.75 for 200ml; P 44.75 for 50ml)
Natural Baby Wonder Oil 100% Natural (P 129.75 for 100ml)

My li’l girl loves taking a bath with the newly introduced Human Nature’s 100% Natural Kids Bath Soap in a yummy Chocolate scent! She feels like she is in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. While she loves the scent, I love that it has gone through a cold process allowing it to retain natural glycerin that seals in moisture to keep her eczema-prone skin soft and supple.

During the brunch, the Human Heart team also introduced to us Plush & Play, a Filipino brand that offers fun, educational and safe toys for children. The Plush & Play brand was launched in 2012 after its founder, Fabien Courteille, a twenty-four year-old French social entrepreneur, 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 hazard to children. Plush & Play toys are made with a soft and hypoallergenic fabric called Velboa, which is ideal for infants and toddlers.
Here we are taking a break from enjoying the food while we listen to Anna talk about how she started the brand.
