Review: SheaMoisture Organic Baby Products

By  | 

One of the most important things that we try to stress here at Natural Hair Kids is the importance of finding gentle, non-abrasive products for babies’ hair and skin. Our friends over at SheaMoisture sent us some amazing products to try out and we were absolutely BLOWN AWAY! Not only do these products work well, but they smell amazing and leave babies’ skin feeling smooth to the touch!

SheaMoisture’s head-to-toe washes and lotions are hands down some of the best baby products on the market. They are a lot more moisturizing then their counterparts and use natural ingredients which is always a plus. They have four different collections that are sure to meet one, if not all, of your baby’s skin and hair care needs.  

Ultra-Sensitive & Moisturizing Collection

SHEAMOISTURE SHAMPOO AND HEALING LOTIONBabies can have all kinds of skin sensitivity issues from cradle cap to eczema. Thankfully, this Ultra-Sensitive collection from SheaMoisture is formulated to cleanse and moisturize baby’s delicate skin without the risk of irritation caused by synthetic colors and fragrances. It also helps to nourish and protect the hair and skin while simultaneously calming and soothing it. Some key ingredients are:

Olive Oil – A proven hydrator, with its high content of Vitamin E and fatty acids.
Marula – Super-rich in fatty acids, omega oils and vitamins, it delivers powerful skin-nourishing benefits.
Avocado Oil –– Rich in Vitamins A, D and E, Lecithin and Potassium, helps nourish skin as it deeply moisturizes

These ingredients are what makes this fragrence-free, gluten-free collection a must have for babies with skin sensitivities.

Red Tea & Babassu Collection

Red-Bush-Babassu Shea Moisture Head to toe shampoo

A little really goes a long way with this product. The label says for babies, but you may be surprised at how much you use this on yourself. Using a pea sized amount for shampooing your baby’s hair is really all you need to cleanse the scalp. After giving baby a good lather, rinse the soap out completely and your baby is left with delicious smelling rolls and soft, delicate curls that smell absolutely amazing. Slather some of the head-to-lotion on and your baby’s skin will be smooth to touch all day long! The key ingredients that make this collection a must have are:

Red Tea– Antioxidant-rich Extract, soothes and improves skin condition.
Babassu Oil – Penetrates quickly to moisturize, soothe and condition the skin with no greasy after-feel.
Carrot Oil -High Beta Carotene (Vitamin A) content protects delicate, sensitive skin. 

Olive & Marula Collection


If you notice that your sweet baby’s skin gets dry and itchy really quickly, then this collection is for you. The smell alone is really a good enough reason to purchase this collection without reading the rest of this review. This product smells like no other baby oil around. Add to the fact that it hydrates and nourishes skin and this is your new holy grail! Use this collection as you normally would when washing your baby or you can also use the lotion as a diaper rash cream to heal dry, irritated bums. Your baby’s skin will have long-lasting moisture all day long and you may find yourself sniffing your baby a little more than usual! The secret to this long-lasting hydration is in the ingredients:

Olive Oil – A proven hydrator with its high content of Vitamin E and fatty acids helps soothe and repair skin. .
Marula – Super-rich in fatty acids, omega oils and vitamins, it delivers powerful skin-nourishing benefits that absorb quickly to hydrate and heal skin.
Avocado Oil –– Rich in Vitamins A, D and E, Lecithin and Potassium, helps nourish skin as it deeply moisturizes.

Raw Shea, Chamomile & Argan Oil Collection

d90efc115abfb2f4a56ed78a6036cfdbLast, but definitely not least, is the Raw Shea, Chamomile & Argan Oil Collection. This collection has similar moisturizing and soothing properties as the other collections and a delicious smell to boot. The baby oil rub is often used as a gentle hair oil to lock in moisture and keep baby’s curls fresh and reduce dryness. This collection makes babies smell like yummy cake. Who doesn’t like the smell of cake? The smell isn’t too overpowering but rather light and airy enough to give you subtle hints of this delicious fragrance. You can thank these ingredients for making your baby smell like pastries:

Shea Butter – Deeply moisturizes and aids in repairing skin with vitamins and essential fatty acids.
Chamomile – Anti-inflammatory properties help relieve red, irritated skin.
Argan Oil – Keeps skin soft and smooth with its high Vitamin E content.


 Overall, SheaMoisture really outdid themselves with this line. The oils are not to thick that they leave baby slipping out of your hands, yet they still keep baby’s skin feeling soft and smooth. The fact that the baby wash doubles as a shampoo clues you in to how moisturizing this product can be. Add to the fact that the wash is tear free and you will be overjoyed to have found a product that you can feel comfortable using on your baby daily or as needed.
