Meow Meow Tweet {Baby line Review}

When I discovered that Meow Meow Tweet launched a new line of products for baby, I contacted them immediately.  They kindly sent me a sample/travel size of each of the 5 products.  Read on to see my thoughts!

If this is the first you've heard of Meow Meow Tweet, let me tell you a little about the brand.  It's a small-batch apothecary in Brooklyn, NY founded by Jeff Kurosaki and Tara Pelletier.  The pair met in art school and started the company in 2009 after being gifted a bar of handmade soap.  I know you're wondering about the company's name; It comes from their two cats and Jeff's bird back in his home state of Hawaii- how sweet!

Since I'm a former Pastry Chef, I love that Tara utilizes skills from her background in the culinary world to create and develop the products!  As vegans, Tara and Jeff formulate their products using purely all-natural plant and mineral-based ingredients.  They use absolutely no animal-derived ingredients, so Meow Meow Tweet's products are free of carmine, beeswax, honey, palm oil, lanolin and tallow and are Leaping Bunny cruelty-free certified. 

Baby Bath Wash

This is a super gentle wash that can be used for baby's hair and body.  The less products I need to juggle while bathing a squirmy child, the better.  The formula is moisturizing, lathers well, and the sweet orange + lavender scent is perfection!  Little miss L was left with clean, baby soft skin after bath time.  I really appreciate that MMT offers it in a plastic pump foaming bottle for ease of use AND a glass bottle for those who are trying to limit the use of plastic.

aqua (water), *cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, *helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil, *ricinus communis (castor) oil, citric acid, +potassium hydroxide, *vegetable glycerin, *rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, *citrus sinensis (sweet orange) essential oil, *lavandula officinalis (lavender) essential oil

*certified organic ingredient / +none remains after saponifying oils

Baby Body Balm

This can be used all over baby's body but also works well as a preventative diaper rash cream.  You can mix it at a 1:1 ratio with the baby powder to create an effective diaper rash remedy.   And guess what mamas?!  It's cloth diaper safe!  Yay!  The scent is mild and I love that it can be used anywhere- on baby or mama!

*mangifera indica (mango) butter, *helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil, *simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil, *sesamum indicum (sesame) oil, infused with *matricaria chamomilia (chamomile), *calendula officinalis (calendula), *plantago major (plantain), *althea officinalis (marshmallow) root, euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, *rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract

*certified organic ingredient

Baby Body Oil

The body oil is similar in scent to the body cream.  It's not overpowering and is free of essential oils, which can irritate some people.   I think a body oil is perfect for using right after bath time while the skin is damp to allow it to sink in effortlessly.  This is ideal for massaging baby as well!  I even used a little for "styling" my daughter's hair!

*persea gratissima (avocado) oil, *helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil , *simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil, *sesamum indicum (sesame) oil, infused with *matricaria chamomilia (chamomile), *calendula officinalis (calendula), *plantago major (plantain), *althea officinalis (marshmallow) root, *rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract

*certified organic ingredient

Baby Body Powder

The body powder is incredibly light and effective at absorbing extra moisture wherever needed.  I enjoyed using it during diaper changes because I would take a whiff before I sprinkled it.  Lavender + Tea Tree = calming and soothing!

*maranta arudinacea (arrowroot) powder, kaolin clay, zinc oxide, *lavandula officinalis (lavender) essential oil, *melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) essential oil

*certified organic ingredient

Cocoa Skin Cream

The skin cream is rich and creamy (as the name implies).  While it is a thick cream, it melts on contact with your skin and rubs in easily.  It's formulated with only four wonderful ingredients and without essential oils.  I personally really enjoy the cocoa butter scent!  My daughter tends to get red, rosy cheeks and dry patches from time to time.  I found this worked well in soothing, moisturizing, and healing her skin.

*cocoa butter (butyrospermum parkii), *butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, *cannabis sativa (hempseed) oil, *helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil

*certified organic ingredient

Overall, I was definitely impressed with each of these products and highly recommend you go ahead and buy them NOW for your little one OR as a welcome baby gift for someone else.  While these baby products are a little more pricey, the ingredients and quality are superior and it shows!

Be sure to follow Meow Meow Tweet on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr to stay up-to-date on products and promotions!

I was sent these products in exchange for my opinion.  All thoughts are my own!
