Mommy Research: Talc-Free Powder for Baby

I constantly have rhinitis. If I fail to take my anti-histamine tablet in the evening before I sleep, I would have bad allergies the next day. I took an allergy test two years ago, and the results were to avoid dust, and some chemicals that I don’t really think I come across every day. I still can’t figure out why this is happening. It must have been something in my youth that triggered this. When I was young I wasn’t breast fed. I was also always pampered and my nanny would use powder. I probably was too sheltered also that I didn’t get to develop my immune system for all of these things in our environment.

But I’m not blaming my parents, nor my nanny, because it was just how the world worked before. These were the information that was available, and so our moms, dads and people around us believed what they heard. Well, even in today’s times, we believe what we hear from the news, social media, etc.

So being a mom is really difficult. You have to decipher and do your own research on things. At times, I feel like I don’t do enough research on the things that I expose my baby to. So, I think, occasionally, I will share insights that I have seen through research. I will tag a post “Mommy Research”, because we moms should always ask the question “why?”

For today’s insight, I researched about TALC.

Talc is a mineral made up mainly of the elements magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. Its powder form absorbs moisture well and helps cut down on friction. This property and feature makes it attractive to use for babies to present them from having rashes, especially in the diaper area.

But there talc is also harmful to your babies. If your baby breathes and inhales a lot of it, it could clog the air sacs in your baby’s lungs. You need to be extra careful with bottles just lying around the house.

But being a mom, we’d rather always be safe, than sorry! In the Philippines, most baby powders (if not all) contain TALC. Imagine how happy and relieved I felt when I discovered that there is now BELO BABY TALC-FREE POWDER that is all-natural with 0% harmful chemicals available in the market?

This product is made from finely milled rice and maize powder that absorb moisture to keep baby’s skin soft and dry. It’s carefully formulated without harmful ingredients — talc, parabens, phthalates, dyes and the most common allergens. It’s hypo-allergenic and dermatologist-tested. I showed the product and had my toddler try it, and this is what she said…

Like my little lady, I loved the sweet scent, too. I tried it and it definitely feels soft and smooth on the skin! Especially now that it’s so hot, I love using it on my daughter. She still smells so fresh after running around. It’s really crafted with care for the most delicate skin, for the most meticulous moms. Each 65g container is at Php 219.75. Belo Baby Talc-free Powder also comes in a very cute packaging that already includes a soft puff.

Now for all of you meticulous moms out there (like me!), you deserve to try this Talc-Free powder from Belo Baby!
