Baby skin care products at SNAANA are made with ingredients that have been in use for centuries unknown and have mention in various old texts. These ingredients help skin stay nourished and pave the way for safe development of the baby. There is absolutely no use of chemicals/synthetics and preservatives in the products. Therefore each of the product is truly an ancient derived recipe with no question of usage of any 21st century chemicals like parabens, formaldehydes, petroleum derived ingredients (petrolatum), coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulphates or its different forms lik SLeS, DEA, MEA, TEA, ethoxylated, fragrance etc.
When these chemicals were not known in ancient times then how come these chemicals make way to ayurveda products sold in today’s market. This raises many questions on the composition, effectiveness and growing side effects of ayurveda products. (Soon coming up with detailed article)
So without any worry of any side effects nourish your baby’s skin with SNAANA baby skin care products. SNAANA is the first of a kind skin care brand in today’s chemically throttled world - 21st century.
Each baby skin care ritual from massaging to cleansing to moisturising hold immense importance for baby’s overall health. You really don’t have to get back to doctor for usually occurring concerns like colic/flatulence, cold & cough, loose motion or no motion for 4-5 days, cradle cap, diaper rash etc. Making baby fall into a regular timed routine of massage, shower, feed and sleep can put these concerns at bay and pave the way for a healthy sound development of the child.
Massaging the baby with oil made with raw- unrefined nuts and seeds oil infused with heeng/asafoetida, lehsun/garlic, vacha , Wild turmeric/kasthuri manjal, jaiphal/nutmeg and aijwain/carom takes good care of not only skin but also keeps digestive, respiratory functioning etc. in good health. A regular morning and evening massage of an infant also relaxes the body, improves the appetite, gets better with sleep patterns and also heals & dries brown scaly –crusty skin called cradle cap. For example -You really don’t need any medication to fix flatulence- all that’s needed is a pinch of heeng/asaefotida mixed with a drop of water and applied to baby’s navel 2-3 times a day. If the baby is on mothers feed then it is important that mother takes a light-easy to digest diet and ajwain/carom green tea. Similarly in cold and cough, the paste made from dried fruit of nutmeg and water by rubbing on a mortar with 2-3 drops of water when made babies lick – can easily cure cold & cough.
Since whatever we apply on skin also makes a way inside to our body. So herbs like heeng, ajwain, lehsun , jaiphal and many more have been in use topically since ancient time to prevent and cure minor and major ailments in babies.

For a healthy, clean and nourished Baby Skin – make sure that you
Application of right product is as important as feeding the child with right food. So always read, understand and make an informed decision while buying baby skin care products.
SNAANA wants to drag your attention to the fact that we are still living in a legal framework that was adopted in British times and has not been amended at the pace synthetics/chemicals have come into use in skin care. Import, manufacture, distribution and sale of skin care/ beauty products are regulated by Drugs & Cosmetics Act 1940 and this law till date has not given a definite and uniform definition for usage of words on labels like natural and organic which is big-time responsible for misleading the consumers.
That is why what is packed in a bottle or jar in the name of natural, organic, ayurvedic is often not what it claims. Synthetic provide comfort and convenience to manufacturers in terms of making product cost effective and extending the shelf life but they harm our bodies. This is because we have never thought that these chemicals can make cause problems like migraine, cancer, hormonal disorders etc and much more in our bodies.
