8 Awesome ‘Made by Mom’ Brands That Keep Your Kids Safe From Harmful Chemicals!

Where there is a mother’s will, there is always a way. They will do anything to protect their young ones from harm. For some, this means creating new products that are free from plastic or harsh chemicals. In this article, we cover eight brands started by mothers in their bid to save kids everywhere.

1. Slurrp Farm– preservative-free millet foods made by a mother

Shauravi Malik and Meghana Narayan had a very limited platter of options when they started searching for preservative-free, healthy foods for their respective children. Junk food was a complete no-no for them as it is for every mother.

When they started falling short of options, the two mothers started a food brand that makes tasty snacks like cookies, dosa batter and pancake mixes with the nutritious millet.

What is the one thing that worries mothers during fun art session of toddlers? Brilliantly coloured walls aside, the main concern is that children might just lick, chew or start eating the toxic crayons.

4. Superbottoms – super eco-friendly & skin-friendly diapers

Pallavi Utagi was disappointed when the expensive diapers bought from USA wouldn’t fit her son. Diapers are one of the costliest products that new parents have to keep buying and not all brands guarantee safety on the delicate skin of babies.

Similar was the case with Pallavi. When the brands in the market failed her, she started studying fabric types herself and established—Superbottoms in 2013, a diaper label that hundreds of new mothers swear by!

5. Praanapoorna – floor cleaners made by a mother

Floor and toilet cleaners contain so many harmful chemicals that they usually come with a warning – keep away from children. Despite this, our home floors are cleaned almost every day with these commercial cleaners.

When Smitha Kamath’s daughter started getting severe rashes, she decided homegrown and organic is the way to go. And one of the sustainable products she makes is bio-enzyme cleaners.

6. Laiqa—plastic-free, safe disposable pads

Monica Bindra didn’t really have a solution when her teenage daughter complained about rashes during her periods. But when her friend, Nazish approached her with the proposition to make eco-friendly, safe pads, she knew this was going to help many young girls like her daughter. The result? Laiqa pads that are breathable, gentle on the skin and comfortable to wear during those difficult days.

7. Safe personal care products by Wild Earth

When Shabia Ravi Walia was looking for soaps and hygiene products for her newborn, the endless list of chemicals on labels scared her. The fact that she did not understand the ingredients was not a happy thought either. And so, to protect her young one from harmful chemicals, Shabia, a media professional, started making personal hygiene products in her kitchen.

Today, her initiative has bloomed into a brand! You can purchase the soaps made by Wild Earth by clicking on this link.

8. Prakrta—Products for babies with delicate skin

Rupam Singh’s daughter was diagnosed with eczema when she was just six months old. This condition meant that the baby could not play with toys, meet people or wear her favourite clothes without alarming her mother. Only when Rupam started using homemade baby oils and creams for her daughter did the skin condition tone down.

What started as a home remedy has now flourished into a business. You can click here to get the all-natural products.
