Mama Earth launches new products for babies and mommies!

When the Indian baby care brand started by a couple was first launched about a year back, I had reviewed their products on the blog. It’s so nice to know that one year down, they have launched sooo many new (and uniquely thoughtful) products – both for babies and moms-to-be! They sent some stuff over and here is a quick review on the same –



About the product - I know how much mess a little one can make and that is why I am here to help you. Whether you’re changing a diaper or need to wipe up baby’s face after a messy meal, I am gentle and safe for all parts of your baby’s delicate skin. I am paediatrician tested, hypoallergenic wipe, soft and ideal for sensitive skin. I am made from 100% Organic Bamboo and hence I don’t cause rashes. I am enriched with Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Almond Oil and Aloe Vera to gently nourish your baby’s skin. I am an earth-friendly biodegradable alternative to traditional polyester based wet wipes.

I really loved the fact that it is made using bamboo which means biodegradable, good for the Earth and good for the baby! It doesn’t have a strong smell like some other wipes have (thanks to the chemicals they have). The wipes are also quite thick and strong. I actually use them for myself too (instead of the adult wet wipes you get, that are so NOT good for your skin). Priced at Rs.249 for 72 wipes, it’s a good deal! Comes with the plastic lid instead of peel sticker – that prolongs the usage of the pack and stops the wipes from drying.

2. After Bite Roll On


About the product - Itching after an insect bite can be really painful and irritating. Hi! I am a 100% natural blend of essential oils for stings and insect bites, with no ammonia, alcohol, preservatives, mineral oil or chemicals. I am an easy to use roll on with the most effective ingredients to reduce itching. I have chamomile, lavender, calendula and peppermint oil which are known home remedies against insect bites and stings. I have anti-inflammatory properties that provide relief from after bite itching. I am safe to be applied on the sensitive skin of new born babies as well.

There are so many mosquito repellent brands fighting for attention in the market, but I wonder why no one thought of what to do after a bug or insect bite? We usually try some home remedies like applying peeled onion or rubbing something made of iron (please don’t try these because I told, you never know how your baby will react to it). This product is a blessing, as it helps soothe itchy sore skin. It doesn’t help reduce the swelling though – at least when I tried, but it definitely makes things better. I tried it on my self when some weird insect bit me. One thing which is not great is the packaging – it’s meant to be travel friendly but all their liquid products end up leaking somehow – so if you’re taking them while traveling, keep them in a separate sealed plastic. 40ml bottle costs Rs.249.


About the product - Hi! I am Mamaearth’s Easy Tummy Roll On. I understand the pain babies and parents go through because of colic and indigestion. Here I come to your rescue. I am known to be extremely effective in helping babies pass gas easily and sleep peacefully. I contain hing oil which is known for its ability to reduce reflux that is formed in the stomach. I am a blend of essential oils like fennel oil, peppermint oil, ginger oil and dill seed oil which gives relief from stomach aches and bloating. I am 100% natural with no preservatives, alcohol or any other harmful chemicals.

It’s definitely a tradition that Indians have since generations, where if the baby is having tummy-troubles, hing is diluted in some water and applied on the baby’s stomach to relieve from gas and bloating. It’s great to know that MamaEarth took that and put it in a bottle – specially useful when travelling with the baby. And apart from hing (or Asafetida) it also has a blend of other essential oils. I have not had to use this product yet, but it smells of hing so I am confident it will work. This is also priced at Rs.249 for a 40ml small bottle.


About the product - Exploring their environment is the first way how a baby is able to understand its surroundings. Mamaearth’s mineral based sunscreen can help your baby take its first steps into the big world by giving them the sun protection they need. Our sunscreen has the best mineral, Zinc oxide with an SPF level of 20 which makes it the best form of sun protection your baby can get. It provides a waterproof layer of safety which protects the skin from any kind of damage from the harmful UVA & UVB rays. Cocoa and shea butter in our sunscreen moisturises your lil one’s skin while Aloe Vera extracts helps the skin soothe. Our mineral based sunscreen allows your baby to have a fun filled day full of protection while splashing about in the water. Mamaearth’s sunscreen comes with a MadeSafe certification and hence is the best sun protection you could chose for your baby.

When we’re out all day in the sun when on vacation or even on a weekend out, we usually remember to apply sunscreen on our self to avoid tanning (more than the UV radiations), but how often do we remember that our li’l one needs to be protected from the harmful UV rays too? Infact their skin is 10 times more sensitive than ours! So I am not saying to use it on a daily basis (I don’t remember any of our moms using sunscreen on us), but if you are going to be out in the open, in the pool or at the beach all day – then this is a must have. It can be used safely for infants as well. Priced at Rs.299 for a 100ml bottle.


About the product - An Epsom salt bath is said to provide relief from various muscle pains in your body. Now that you are pregnant, you get tired more often and end up with aches from places in your body that you never even knew existed. MamaEarth’s Epsom Bath Salt knows how those aches and pains can be reduced. Been created with 100% Natural ingredients, our Epsom bath salt provides you with replenished levels of Magnesium and Sulphate which helps in reducing all kinds of pains from your body. The addition of lavender oil to the Epsom salt, helps you relax and calm your senses in order to feel peaceful. With sweet Almond oil, your skin feels moisturised and nourished. Apart from what you read till now, Epsom bath salt also eliminates toxins from your body. Now that you have read all the wow-inducing benefits, why don’t you go ahead and buy it for yourself? So just get some warm water, add our Epsom salt in it and dip yourself to relax your mind and soothe all your muscle pains.

Now, even though I am not a mom-to-be and a mom to a 3 year old, I think anyone can benefit from Epsom bath salts – on crampy days, when you’re tired and worn out after running behind the toddler all day or if you just need to relax and unwind. Now, Epsom salt is best used in a bath-tub, where you get to dip yourself and soak. But how many of us, specially city-dwellers have the luxury of a bath-tub at home? Not me at least. So there are other ways to use them – your normal bucket with hot (not boiling) water, add some salt to it and dip for your feet to relieve pain, or dip your hands. You can also use it as a shower scrub or soak a towel in the Epsom salt water and apply on any area of the body that needs attention. You will feel quite relaxed and soothed for sure! Priced at Rs.399 for a 200gm tub. Be careful to seal it back properly and not let too much moisture enter it, or else the salt will clump up.


Apart from these, they have a huge variety of products on their website. There even are gift packs available both for moms-to-be and babies, so these make great gifts for baby-showers or naming ceremonies too. They usually send their sample sachets along with orders, which are great for travel purposes!
