If you use chemical soaps for your baby then some of the ingredients in them might shock you. Some common ones are Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) -(known neurotoxin), Dioxane (linked to breast cancer), diethanolamine (known carcinogen), Monosodium glutamate (MSG) etc. It scares the hell out of me that we are exposing our children to such dangerous chemicals through baby products.
I had switched to organic and natural soap for my daughter a long time back and recently I tried the Rustic Art Vanilla Soap for her. Here is the review:
Review of Rustic Art Vanilla Soap
Product description :
Vanilla – Kids Will Love It!
Apart from being famous for its enchanting fragrance, Vanilla is a powerful anti-oxidant. It prevents skin damage, and of course, the fragrance… umm!

These soaps are moulded, cut and trimmed by hands, hence they are virgin to machines. They carry strong fragrances which are completely natural. They are free of any harmful chemicals.
Organic Corn Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Castor Oil, Organic Neem Oil, Olive Oil (certified), De-mineralised water, Caustic Lye and certified organic essential oils based on the fragrance.
Rs 155/- for 100 gms
Biodegradable cloth packaging
I loved the fact that the soap has Eco-friendly packaging. The soap has a raw, earthy look to it but smells delicious. If you have ever actually smelled vanilla pods the fragrance is heavenly and soothing. The rustic art vanilla soap also has the same kind of fragrance due to the essential oils.
The soap does not lather a lot but enough to bathe kids easily. My reservation is that it might not last long because it melts away quite easily. My daughter also loved the smell. But the best part about the soap was that it did not sting her eyes at all which is a common complaint with other soaps.
If you are most moms who love the baby/toddler smell then using the Rustic art vanilla soap will make this smell even better. I would definitely recommend this soap for your baby’s bath time.
Where to Shop
Two of my recommendations for purchasing Rustic Art baby products would be Beaute’ Naturelle and NaturalMantra.
Benefits of Vanilla essential oils for skin
Due to the high pollution the oxidation of skin occurs because of free radicals which even effects children. Vanilla oil has antioxidant property which repairs the cell damage.
The vanilla essential oil has relaxing and calming effect on the brain and nerves which is great for relief from anxiety, anger and restlessness.
Helps in breathing problems
In case of breathing problems vanilla essential oil can be used for aromatherapy which will relieve the trouble to an extent.
