With the arrival of my Darling son , I am once again shopping products for new born. Unlike the last time when I became mommy for the first time, this time I find myself a little more skeptical and aware while choosing products for my newborn. I am reading reviews more than ever and am also reading the labels for the ingredients used in the products. I am a big fan of natural ingredients and I try to buy products that are made with natural ingredients. However this is not possible every time I buy a product. So, are the chemical based products always harmful? The answer is NO. Every single product that manages to make its way to the shelf of a supermarket is clinically tested and is approved if found safe to use. The biggest downside of using chemical based products is the probability of side effects like irritation and allergies and so you must try the natural products atleast once and then decide what suits your baby best.
As parents we are always in search of brands that offer safe products. Before anything what comes is the safety, whatever we put on our baby’s skin is absorbed by it and so it is very important for us to be careful while choosing any product.
As I was already ransacking google to find the safest products I stumbled upon one advertisement where Ms. Shilpa Shetty Kundra (Actor turned Healthy Living Expert) was endorsing a brand claiming that it makes toxin free products with natural ingredients. I was already looking out for a good dusting powder for my baby and I was using Cloth nappies which my baby was wetting very often. And my search ended at Mamaearth’s Dusting Powder for babies.
What Is Mamaearth And What is So Special About It

Mamaearth Dusting Powder For Babies Review
So now you know that in this post I am reviewing Mamaearth’s Dusting Powder. I used cloth nappies for my baby and dusting powder really helped in keeping babies bottom moisture free thus I was searching for a product that I could use with every nappy change without exposing my baby’s soft skin to chemicals and toxins. This is when I stumbled upon this product and decided to use it for my baby and the results were amazing.
If you visit Mamaearth’s website and search for the dusting powder, you will find that Mamaearth Claims are as below
“Hi! I am Mamaearth’s dermatologically tested 100% natural, no lung-clogging, talc-free body dusting powder. Organic and natural ingredients in me help babies skin retain moisture while treating and preventing diaper rash. Organic Oatmeal in me is a skin protectant. It prevents dry, itchy and irritated skin by maintaining skin’s moisture barrier. Natural cornstarch in me helps absorb extra moisture and is antimicrobial. I am safe for your baby as I am dermatologically tested and I contain no harmful chemicals like talc, SLS, paraben, phthalates, or artificial fragrances.”
Let us see if the claims are true or not and is the dusting powder really worth it.
100% Natural Ingredients : Yes, according to what the Mamaearth Dusting Powder’s label say all the ingredients used in making of this product are natural. They have used high quality organic natural ingredients and that is probably why they are approved by MADESAFE. It has Arrowroot powder and Oats starch, both these ingredients are known for their absorbing properties, they help in retaining moisture and maintaining Skin’s moisture barrier thus preventing skin irritation and rashes and dry skin in babies.
The Organic agrana cornstarch present in it has antimicrobial properties and is a natural antiperspirant which prevents growth of bacteria on the skin.
Talc Free : Many baby powders contain Talcum powder which is and ingredient that may not be safe for babies. Made with natural ingredients Mamaearth’s dusting powder claims to be 100% Talc free.
MamaEarth Dusting Powder is an excellent product for babies. It is made with all natural products and it is very mild on baby’s soft and sensitive skin. The talc free powder is designed to nourish the skin and maintain the needed moisture level of the skin, thus preventing the problem of dryness and associated problems like itching.
The product is certainly expensive as compared to other brands like Himalaya and Johnson & Johnson, but it is worth the price.
The difference is seen after the first few applications itself, use it after each nappy change and keep your baby’s bottom rash free. I have been using this powder on my baby since 4 months and to be true, there has not been a single incident of nappy rash with my baby. I used this dusting powder when I was using cloth nappies and I am still using now with diapers.
The biggest plus point of this product is the fact that all the ingredients mentioned on the packaging are known to me and are probably harmless for an infant’s skin.
The packaging of the powder is also very handy. It comes in light weight plastic bottle which is very easy to use and carry. The powder is very smooth and it smears smoothly on the skin. The fragrance of the powder is very mild and soothing and it lingers.
It is a perfect choice for parents who are keen on using organic and natural products for their babies.
