Go green and reduce your carbon footprint with Dantoy Toys!

Check out this brand-new “I’m Green” line of bioplastic toys from Dantoy. Made of at least 90% sugarcane, a sustainable raw material, Dantoy’s bioplastic is 100% recyclable.

Dantoy’s range of bio toys includes this popular 22-piece, pretend play dinner set which can be used for garden picnics. Ideal for playing it is safe, durable and toxin free. It encourages social skills, interaction and helps children to learn whilst having fun. We were kindly #gifted a set for George to try out and he loves them. They are made well, and can sustain any banging and crashing around (just like any other plastic) that little ones absolutely love doing! They’re also a lovely muted green colour too, rather than the common rainbow brights you get in most children’s toys.

Dantoy leads the way with their bioplastics. The manufacture of bioplastics reduces carbon emissions. The sugarcane is cultivated on controlled, pesticide-free plantations in central and southern Brazil and is harvested every 6 – 12 months. Bioplastic made of sugarcane is a 100% sustainable raw material. Making the sets a green planet friendly option which essentially makes way for a healthier planet for our little ones to live on in their futures!

Sugarcane can be harvested several times a year and new plants are planted every five to seven years. The fields are harvested every six to twelve months enabling them to be classified as a sustainable raw material too. Another great bonus is that Sugarcane absorbs carbon dioxide from the air, thereby minimising the greenhouse effect. For the manufacture of bioplastic, the carbon emissions accounts are positive from the budding of the plant until it is manufactured into bioplastic. For each kilo of manufactured bioplastic, 3.09 kg of carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere.

An added bonus is that Dantoy’s packaging is all made from recycled cardboard. Their toys are made to last and are approved for contact with foods, microwave safe, dishwasher safe, frost-proof and contains no toxins. – More green and eco credentials which we believe is great, creating an all round eco green product!

Dantoy believe that people should buy less & buy well. That is why their toys are only made with sustainable products. We can all be eco-friendly and by choosing brands who care will make a little difference.

Look after babies’ skin whilst supporting conservation with Petit Jovial

Introducing the new capsule collection for bumps babies and beyond from @petitjovial … Handmade in England this set is 100% vegan, and has been a gorgeous gift for little George!

Our fave from the set at the moment is the nourishing balm, made with Shea, rosehip oil, lavender and chamomile… it works wonders on sore teething bums (George had this so badly during a few days of teething, his poor bum went dry and patchy red – so I thought we’d give the balm a go and overnight the thinnest little slither cleated up his soreness and made for a super happy baby!), and is the perfect moisturiser for baby and mum!

The Petit Jovial Collection:

Body & Scalp Massage Oil, £22

This gentle blend of 100% natural oils is formulated with Safflower, Sesame, Jojoba and Wheatgerm Oils. The pure blend helps to soothe your baby when massaged gently unto their skin, which can benefit their digestion, ease wind, and strengthen the bonding process between you. 

It is equally as effective as a scalp oil to help ease cradle cap, and as a moisturising body oil for all ages. It also works wonders on stretchmarks, to keep the skin elastic during pregnancy.

Nourishing Bath Oil, £23

This lightly moisturising 100% natural bath oil is made with skin-loving Sunflower oil, relaxing lavender, Geranium and Clary Sage to help soothe and relax your baby, as well as the rest of the family. The Bath Oil nourishes delicate skin as it gently cleanses, leaving skin feeling soft and loved. You can also apply the oil post-soak directly onto the skin, to lock in moisture.

Nourishing Multi-Purpose Balm for Face & Body, £25

A luxurious multi-purpose, rich balm made with 100% natural butters – Shea Butter, Rosehip Oil, soothing Lavender and Calming Chamomile. The balm is the perfect barrier for sensitive bottoms, to soothe nappy rash and to moisturise and dry areas. 

It also works wonders for breastfeeding Mothers, as a nipple balm to soothe cracked and painful nipples, and to nourish dry cuticles and lips. It can also be used as a cleaning balm. This nappy, and beauty bag essential is a true versatile essential for any new, or experienced parent.

Expertly created by Certified Skincare Formulator Tania Veignat, using only the finest natural ingredients and no nasties, Petit Jovial skincare is gentle enough for babies, yet so effective their parents love to use it. They use organic ingredients wherever possible, with minimal impact on the environment. Each small batch of Petit Jovial is produced by hand, to guarantee purity and freshness and is registered by the Vegan Society. 

Discover the signature products now at www.petitjovial.com, priced from £22.

More about Petit Jovial…

After the birth of her son, Petit Jovial’s founder, Tania Veignat was inspired to create a pure and natural skincare line for babies. She couldn’t find anything gentle enough for his sensitive skin where she lives in Paris, and decided to make her own, and so Petit Jovial was born. 

Founder Tania Veignat says: “When my son was born, I scrutinised every label to check the ingredients, a habit I have since I am a chemist. I found that some products had secret ingredients that I wouldn’t want to put on my own skin, let alone my son’s precious skin. So, I founded Petit Jovial, with a focus on natural ingredients. As a certified natural skincare formulator, and with a degree in Chemistry, I want Petit Jovial to become the trusted natural skincare destination for your family. Our products care for you baby, children and yourself in a kind, gently way.”

Committed to environmental issues, Petit Jovial have chosen to bottle their skincare in MIRON violet glass jars and bottles. This specially designed dark purple glass helps to keep products fresher for longer, by shielding the contents from UV light. It’s the perfect packaging for natural skincare, as it preserves the freshness, without needing to use chemical additives. They are recyclable too, and to help minimise the impact on the planet.

As part of their commitment to people and planet, Petit Jovial donate to charities working on orang-utan conservation projects in Indonesia. Deforestation is devastating Indonesia, removing the orangutans’ natural habitat, putting them on the ‘Critically Endangered’ list, with only around 14,000 Sumatran orang-utans, and 104,000 Bornean orang-utans left in the wild*. This is a cause close to founder Tania’s heart, as her late dad was Indonesian, and she spent much of her childhood there.

Beat the knots with WetBrush UK

Introducing the multi- award winning @wetbrushuk detangler, the solution to getting rid of those pesky knots gently from your wet hair! I always struggle with this (and most brushes) but this beauty glides straight through with ease! Coming in three new monochrome designs and two original shades of black and pink there’s one to choose for everyone! We particularly like the monochrome patterns as they suit every personality so you cannot go wrong.

How you brush your hair is key to strong and healthy hair and the single most overlooked step in haircare. Hair is at it’s weakest when wet and pulling can snap it like a rubber band. This is why you should brush with a tool like the WetBrush detangler – that gently loosens knots without pulling or breaking hair.

The revolutionary WetBrush Original Detanglers utilise IntelliflexTM bristles technology, which make it the perfect detangling brush in the salon, in the shower, after a gym workout or at the beach. IntelliflexTM bristles are thin, strong and very flexible. They have adaptive flexibility – flexible on one stroke and firm on the next, eliminating all tugging, tearing, pulling and ripping. No spilt ends, no hair loss, just healthy brushing and detangling. This allows for over 45% less breakage, 56% less effort resulting in 100% happier hair.

The WetBrush Original Detangler is the solution, the moment you use it, you will #feelthedifference and you will never want to try another hairbrush.
