BabyCare Sea Sponge
Whether you are cleaning the soft folds of tiny newborn skin or scrubbing muck and dirt off your toddler, bathtime gives us the daily opportunity to reconnect with our little ones.
For the best bathtime, you need the best tools. And while natural and gentle soap get a lot of attention, the humble sponge is often overlooked.
A Pure Baby Requires A Pure Sponge
Typical synthetic sponges are harmful to the environment and could upset your baby’s sensitive skin. Petroleum-based ingredients, bleached cellulose, and hormone-altering chemicals all make up an innocent looking sponge.
In addition to the chemicals, synthetic sponges retain dirty water, creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria.
And because sponges are not biodegradable, the average sponge clogs our landfills and pollute our planet. Chances are the same sponge you used to wash your baby will still be sitting in a landfill long after he’s all grown up!
BabyCare natural sea sponges are totally different.
Mediterranean Honeycomb Sponge
The sponge's cellular makeup is what makes it such an effective bathing tool. Don’t waste your expensive natural baby wash —the sponge fibers themselves do most of the cleansing work. Spaghetti sauce faces, marker covered fingers, and sweaty newborn hair will all appreciate a gentle cleanse with this magical sponge.
Naturally occurring enzymes inhibit the growth of bacteria or mold within the sponge, so you can relax knowing your baby is getting a pure cleanse.
Attention To Detail
The Natural Intimacy team understand your baby’s needs, so we hand select the perfect sponges. We check for optimal density, size, and softness because we know these factors affect your bathing experience. Sponges that are less than ideal are repurposed, while the most gentle and delicate sponges are passed along to your family.
When you use a BabyCare sea sponge, you are nurturing your little one and the planet at the same time! Trained divers ensure the root of the sponge is protected during harvesting, so new sponges can grow from the same source. Plus, the gentle harvesting process causes millions of sponges cells to be released into the waters, where they are fertilized, attach to sea rocks, and grow into new sponges.
We do our best to diligently inspect each and every BabyCare sponge, but because these sponges grow in the sea with other marine life, they might contain traces of typical sea residue. Don't worry, it's natural.
Simply clean your sponge before you use it for the first time.
Washing your sponge well between uses and allow to air dry away from surfaces will extend the life of your sponge.
The best method of cleaning will vary depending on how you use your sponge. Choose a method that works best for you. Do not use harsh soaps or chemicals that can harm the delicate fibers of the sponge.
