With a name that literally means Father in Portuguese, Pai Skincare is the best “parent” one could want for their child’s sensitive skin. Based in London, this organic skincare company was founded when Sarah Brown, who had suffered for years from bad skin allergies, decided to do some research into her common, everyday skin care products. After discovering that many companies use toxic chemicals in their products, Brown chose to create a skincare line that did not sacrifice its organic properties or health benefits for a few dollars. In 2007, Pai Skincare was founded, a blessing to all those who suffer from sensitive skin.
Now, Pai Skincare has created a line specifically for children, because, as Sarah Brown puts it, “When you’re a mom, you have a million and one things to think about. Worrying what you’re putting on your child’s skin shouldn’t be one of them.” With just a quick glance at the extensive list of chemicals that Pai chooses to leave out of its products (alcohol, formaldehyde, parabens, Phenoxyethanol, etc.), it is easy to see that Brown wasn’t lying. Instead of harsh chemicals, the line makes use of ingredients that are all naturally derived, and approved for use from the Soil Association. Some common ingredients found in their products include Rosehip (rich in Omega 3, 6, 7, and 9), Chamomile (anti-inflammatory that soothes sensitive skin), and Lotus Water (hydrates and revitalizes dry skin). Even better, they do not carry out animal testing, and all of their packaging is made from recycled materials.
The Petit Pai range includes:
Apple & Mallow Blossom Face & Body Cream (£20): Rich in nourishing organic oils and butters, this cream helps hydrate, soothe, and protect sensitive skin. Developed specifically for baby skin, this botanical-boasting cream promotes repair and prevents moisture loss.
Apple & Mallow Blossom Hair & Body Wash + Konjac Sponge (£18): This super gentle formula provides the ultimate cleansing action for delicate skin and scalps, moisturizing skin and hair and helping to maintain delicate pH balances.
The range even includes a try me set with miniature options of both the cream and the wash, perfect for travel sized options and babies on the go!
