Apothecary baby and adult skincare products | Herbbies Care Series Review

Skin is the largest organ in the body. It covers most of the external surface of our body and acts as our first defense against invading bacteria, harsh chemicals and pollutants. Therefore, healthy skin is not just for the sake of maintaining a great appearance. But it is also to safeguard our health in general. Born in a family with atopy ( a medical term to describe an inherited trait of having sensitive skin, nose and airways), I am always open to apothecary skincare products such as Herbbies.

Herbbies is founded by Malaysian, uses Malaysian herbs of premium quality harvested from an organic farm in the state of Selangor to produce skincare products with medicinal properties. We had the opportunity to try out the Care Series. The Care Series consist of 2 oils-- the facial and body oil, as well as the treatment oil.

The oil bundle came in the mail on the same day Bing boy came home with his hand painted necklace using macaronis from his play school. 

The main active ingredient in the Care Series is Vernonia Oil aka bitter leaves. Originally found widely in South Africa, bitter leaves are known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions and are used for its medicinal properties. When used in Skincare Products, it helps to dampen inflammation and relieve itchy rash.

Other essential oils used in the Care Series include grape seed oil, jojoba oil and avocado oil. These oils are known for their properties in hydrating the skin, as well as nourishing the skin with vitamins and minerals. Herbbies products do not contain harsh chemicals such as paraben, alcohol and steroid which can irritate sensitive skin or make skin thinner and bruise easily. It is 100% vegan friendly.


How to use Herbbies Care Series?

Put a few facial and body oil droplets onto the palm and rub into warm oil. Apply the oil onto the sensitive skin areas then massage gently to facilitate absorption. As for the treatment oil, simply roll onto the affected areas and use the roller or hand to gently massage the oil in. As these products are not tested in children younger than 3 years old, Herbbies does not recommend usage in toddlers and infants. Otherwise, breastfeeding and expecting mothers can use it safely provided the product is not applied to the breast in case the baby accidentally ingests the oil.

Oils for external use like the Herbbies series should also be tested against allergy before use. Especially for those with a history of allergy. Try it on a small area in an inconspicuous spot such as the upper inner arm 24hours beforehand. If there is no reaction, it is safe for use. I did use the Herbbies Care Series oil for baby Yi who is 1year plus. He has dry and sensitive skin. Any insect bite will result in blisters and an exaggerated area of swelling and redness which with scratching, often leaves behind pigmentation and scars. So far, the oil is quick to apply, fast to absorb and mess free. It relieves the itch, moisturizes his skin and dampens the inflammation. It gives off a faint woody scent which also calms him.


Look at how interested baby Yi is to the oils.
