Description

“When it comes to baby care-related matters, safety remains the top concern for mothers. Seemingly a simple formula, brands are making extra efforts to optimise purity and natural-focus in product ingredients and scents as a way to rebuild consumer confidence. As opposed to added benefits such as nourishing skin provided by baby wipes or advanced wetness signals on nappies, a claim of 100% natural needs to blend seamlessly into both product and marketing messaging.”
