MooGoo Nipple Balm
MooGoo is an absolute favourite natural skincare brand. As a family, we use so many of their gorgeous natural beauty and baby care products.
I was delighted to discover that the latest MooGoo product is a nipple balm. MooGoo is so supportive of the mother and baby journey.
Nipple Balm can help care for and protect sore nipples. It can also help with any chafing or rubbing. It contains calendula extract and moisturizing plant oils that heal and soothe the sensitive area.
Who should use MooGoo Nipple Balm?
Mothers of newborns
Most new mothers experience pain when they first start breastfeeding. Most women don't believe that nipples' toughen up', but there's certainly a period of adjustment at the start of breastfeeding.
Poor positioning and latch are often the root cause of nipple pain.
Mothers of teething babies
A baby who is cutting teeth will often cause mum nipple pain. Teething disturbs the mouth and affects proper latching. The teeth rub against the nipple and can dig in. The new teeth often feel very sharp when they first come through.
Biting can cause substantial damage. With a teething baby or toddler, it usually just takes time for their latch to adjust before things get back to normal.
MooGoo Nipple Balm ingredients
Many grapeseed oil's beauty benefits may be due to its vitamin E and omega-6 fatty acid content. Free radicals and environmental factors such as sun, wind, and pollution can do a number on your skin. They may increase the signs of aging and cause dry skin and discolouration.
Vitamin E helps battles free radicals, so it may help improve your skin when consumed in your diet. The same benefits may apply when it's applied directly to your skin in the form of grapeseed oil. omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are crucial to skin function and appearance. And omega-6 fatty acids are necessary for skin barrier functioning. The primary omega-6 PUFA in grapeseed oil is linolenic acid. This fatty acid may help reduce inflammation in the skin's middle and outer layers.
Sunflower seed oil
Linoleic acid helps to maintain the skin's natural barrier, supporting its ability to retain moisture. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect when used topically. Makes it beneficial for dry skin and conditions, such as eczema. Sunflower oil is more effective at improving skin hydration and maintaining the skin's outer layer's integrity. The linoleic acid in sunflower oil makes it useful for protecting skin against bacteria and germs. This oil is moisturizing yet lightweight.
Calendula oil is a natural oil extracted from marigold flowers (Calendula officinalis) and often used as a complementary or alternative treatment.
Calendula oil has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that might make it useful in healing wounds, soothing eczema, and relieving diaper rash—also used as an antiseptic.
Beeswax has many healing properties. The anti-inflammatory properties of beeswax encourage the healing of wounds. It is also protective, helping form a barrier between the skin and the environment without clogging pores. Further, beeswax is high in vitamin A, has been found to support cell reconstruction and health.
