Buds Organic Stretch Mark Cream

Looking for something to repair your stretched skin post-partum? Try Buds Organics Stretch Mark Repair Cream!

BO SMRC-1Our Buds Organics Stretch Mark Repair Cream not only contains chlorella vulgaris, it also contains apple seed extract which helps to correct and prevent the formation of stretch marks. Apple extract improves the appearance of cellulite and work on skin tone. The phenolic compounds present in apple extract, particularly from apple seeds, have been shown to scavenge free radicals in the skin tissues, protecting against premature aging. There are also indications that these compounds work to actively promote cell health by activating “early cell death” of cancerous tissue.

Apple seed oil is also a source of beneficial skin care. Sometimes called calocarpum mamossum or sapuyul, the oil is rich in essential fatty acids and proteins, providing an effective emollient for skin tissues. The moisturizing qualities of apple seed oil makes it an excellent choice for all skin types, but is particularly effective for dry skin that has been subject to damage from the elements. Apple seed oil, in its pure form, has a pleasant, almond-like aroma.

Interesting Gift Idea for Baby Shower

Shopping for a baby shower gift ? Or someone you know is having a baby and you are looking for a special gift for the person? Do you think that gift hampers, NTUC vouchers, red packet, baby clothing and accessories, tonic etc. are just too common and overly gifted?

Here is one suggestion: Diaper Cake.

diaper cakeYup. Firstly, it’s not a real cake, and you cannot eat it. It is a cake that is made up of diapers and decorated to look like a tiered cake. Secondly, it is practical. Diaper is an essential item in today’s parenting context, and what better than something which will definitely be used. Thirdly, it comes with other useful products that can be used on the baby or by the parents.

If you do a search on the internet, you will find many companies in the diaper cake business. Of all, The Diaper Cake Company offers something different. Their diaper cakes are bundled with products that are practical and handy to have around the house that can help care for the newborn baby.  Their concept and designs are also quite different from the rest. The diaper cakes can be personalized and each cake comes with a special card for the receiver’s keepsake. You also do not have to worry about delivering it yourself as delivery within Singapore is included.

Diaper Rash Treatment Cream

As retailers, we are fortunate to be able to try out different types of diaper creams on our kids to find out what and how each of the products work on them. We have classified our diaper creams into two categories:

Preventive & Treatment

Preventive would be your every day diaper cream which will provide the baby’s bum with a barrier to protect from getting a diaper rash. Some of these diaper creams will contain zinc oxide, which serves as an excellent waterproof barrier to prevent the baby’s bum from stewing in a damp patch. There are of course the organic versions which uses oils, such as sunflower oil, as a barrier to protect. One such diaper cream is the Buds Organics Nappy Time Change Cream.

Treatment would be a cream that serves to treat the diaper rash and still provide that barrier to protect baby’s delicate bum from other free radicals. One such cream will be the Buds Organics Nappy Time Soothing Cream (previously known as Nappy Rash Rescue Cream).

The Nappy Time Soothing Cream contains the wonderful goodness of shiso extract which protects and moisturises your baby’s bottom naturally, spent grain wax, and the prebiotic, Gluco-oligosaccharide.

Shiso is a herb that is part of the mint family and we commonly see it in Asian cooking, predominantly in Japanese cuisine as a kind of decoration. But it’s properties definitely goes beyond just being a decoration on the plate!

The shiso plant contains a large proportion of unsaturated fatty acids, mainly alpha-linoleic acid, which is a kind of omega fat that our body cannot produce. Leaf extracts have shown antioxidant, antiallergic, anti-inflammatory, antidepressant, anorexigenic, and tumor-preventing properties. In a study, it was found that shiso extract actually inhibited acute inflamation for dermatitis.

Gluco-oligosaccharide (G-OS) is a water soluble oligosaccharide similar to those found in breast milk that help protect newborns from infection. These oligosaccharides help protect from infection without having bactericidal effects (prevents bacteria from causing an infection) and therefore do not induce bacterial resisitance (does not kill good bacteria so you build up a resistance to the good bacteria!). They work by stopping the bacteria from adhering to the cell wall, one of the first steps in mounting an infection and appear to act on Staphylococcus aureus – a bacteria found in the majority of patients who suffer from atopic dermatitis and is thought to be related to skin inflammation.
