“From shortly after birth, mothers tenderly wash and pamper their infants with a wide range of baby products. These include soaps, shampoos, lotions, and dusting powders, some of which are used several times daily.

However, how would these mothers react if they discovered that these products contain a witches brew of dangerous ingredients? Hopping mad could be a reasonable understatement.

Most disturbing are three groups of widely used ingredients known as ‘hidden carcinogens’ – ingredients which are contaminated by carcinogens, or which break down to release carcinogens, or which are precursors of carcinogens – to which infants are about 100 times more sensitive than adults.”

Excerpt from “It’s Time To Protect Babies from Dangerous Products” by Dr Samuel Epstein

Put quite simply a certified organic product is one in which every ingredient must be grown, processed, produced and stored without the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers and synthetic chemicals.

This means they are free from all genetically modified ingredients, petrochemicals, sulphates and parabens.

The production process is strictly audited by an independent third-party to ensure the products conform to the most stringent of international standards

When an a product is certified organic you can be guaranteed the organic integrity of each and every ingredient and the product as a whole.

Without certification an organic claim can be pretty meaningless.

Our organic certification is what sets miniOrganics apart from most other brands. It is our guarantee of quality, purity and safety.

Note: You may notice that our organic percentages vary from product to product. This is because some ingredients such as salt and water are excluded from the calculation of organic percentages by all certifying bodies. It is extremely rare for anything to be 100% certified organic. At miniOrganics we pride ourselves on achieving the highest possible organic content in every one of our gentle and yet effective products.

Many brands make organic claims but in reality very few would ever meet the rigorous standards of certification.

In the cosmetics and personal care industry use of the words “natural” and “organic” abounds. The cosmetic industry’s definition of “natural” is “any ingredient derived from a natural substance” – but some natural substances require the use of carcinogenic synthetic chemicals to extract the ingredient for use. Similarly the cosmetic industry defines “Organic” as anything containing carbon. Carbon is found in anything that ever lived.. so you could argue that crude oil is organic..so too the toxic petrochemical preservative “methyl paraben”.

Quite simply just because something is labelled natural and organic is not necessarily a guarantee it is good for you. In most countries at present there are no laws to restrict the use of these words on personal care products, meaning that anyone can call his or her product “organic” without legal consequence.

However, the term “Certified Organic” helps cut through the confusion. Every ingredient within a certified organic product must be grown, processed, produced and stored without the use of pesticides, fertilisers and synthetic chemicals. Certified organic products must be completely free from genetically modified ingredients, petrochemicals, sulphates and parabens. The production process is strictly audited by an independent third party to ensure the products conform to the most stringent of international standards.

Without certification an organic claim can be pretty meaningless. Only by searching for certified organic products can you be sure of the organic authenticity and integrity of every ingredient in a product.

Our organic certification is what sets miniOrganics apart from most other brands. It is our guarantee of quality, purity and safety for you and your family.

Each and every one of our gentle formulations are Certified Organic, 100% Vegan and Cruelty-free.

We use only the finest, purest ingredients and a highly effective natural preservative system in all our gentle formulations.

With no unnecessary fillers, you will find a very little goes a very long way. Remember too that our little ones only a little product..

Our Australian Organic Formulation logo and our Organic Certification are our guarantee to you that what you are purchasing is a true organic product.

The internationally recognised “Open Jar” logo is included on all our packaging. This identifies the expected shelf life , in months, of a product after opening.

We avoid the use of all potentially dangerous phthalate-leaching soft plastics and chose either highly stable, BPA free, recyclable HDPE plastics or glass to maintain the integrity of our gentle, natural formulations

You will NEVER find any of the following in any miniOrganics product.

  • Genetically modified ingredients
  • Petrochemicals
  • Sulphates
  • Parabens
  • Pesticide Residues
  • Artificial fragrances
  • Tricolsan / chlorophenol
  • Lanolin
  • No nuts or no nut oils

Parents of children with nut allergies can rest assured we use absolutely no potentially allergenic nut oils in any of our formulations.

Absolutely not, as many parents have very real concerns over nut allergies.

When we first began formulating the range, we decided that miniOrganics would be a brand free of all nut oils, giving parents of allergy prone children greater peace of mind.

Our certified organic Superfine Jojoba is the perfect massage oil for baby. It has a light, silky feel so you only need use a few drops. It is super gentle and it is compatible with even the most delicate of newborn skin, and as it is so pure, especially suitable for premature babies.

The incredible benefit of massage and touch therapy in infants and pre-term babies is well documented. Massage is an excellent way to help you bond with your baby.
Most babies love to be massaged, particularly after bath time. It not only helps to settle baby, but can help improve sleep patterns, aid in digestion, soothe colic, reflux and constipation, and reduce stress levels in both mother and child.

Our Superfine Jojoba is just perfect for this. It is the closest oil in nature to the skin’s own sebum and it works wonders. Simply massage a few drops into your little one’s scalp, leave for 15 minutes or so (the longer the better) , then gently brush away the flakes with a soft baby brush. As Jojoba does not clog the pores it is quite safe to leave for longer or you can follow with a super gentle organic shampoo , like our Baby wash to cleanse baby’s scalp and hair.

It is important to avoid mineral based oils and harsh shampoos at all costs. They will only make the problem worse.

That is a hard one to answer. They are all great.. Our Enriched Moisturiser and Nourishing Body Oil become firm favourites of everyone who tries them. Some of our biggest fans are not even mums. But if I had to chose one our Superfine Jojoba would have to be at the top of the list.. It is the most versatile amazing product ever and great for just about anything… the perfect moisturiser, the most amazing eyemake up remover, a great nail and hair treatment, ideal for soothing shaving rash and ingrown hairs, and acne prone skin in teenagers.. seriously everybody need a bottle in their bathroom cabinet!

We often refer to our mist as “toner for babies”. It is actually a pure certified organic hydrosol, and is harvested during the distillation of the essential oils of the chamomile daisy. As such it is the very essence of a plant known for its excellent anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties.

miniOrganics Calming & Hydrating Mist is ideal for use at every nappy (diaper) change as it helps to effectively soothe, cleanse and freshen your baby’s delicate nappy area.

It is also an integral part of our 3-Step “Prescription” for helping to soothe dry itchy eczema-like skin conditions and great for all delicate and allergy prone complexions. It is perfect for soothing any areas of redness and refreshing your baby’s skin and for cleansing grubby faces and fingers when you are on the go.

While chamomile is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin it has also been known to help alleviate stress and anxiety. A cold compress of Roman Chamomile may even be used to provide natural relief from migraine, and a spritz or two has even been known to calm a cranky baby!

Hi Sandy,

Our multi-purpose Gentle Baby Wash is formulated for the most delicate of skin. It is ideal for cleansing not only baby’s body, but is also an excellent baby shampoo.

Simply work a small amount between your hands to create a creamy lather and apply directly to baby’s hair and scalp. As it contains no harsh detergents it is very low foaming, yet cleanses thoroughly. Remember to rinse gently.

In fact, miniOrganics Gentle Baby Wash makes a great shampoo for all young children, and anyone in the family who suffers from a sensitive, dry or itchy scalp.
