Dr. Natalie Geary, a Manhattan pediatrician, developed a line of natural products for people who want to avoid many substances in current body products such as parabens, artificial fragrance, petroleum, animal ingredients, steroids, preservatives, and artificial colorings. Originally motivated by parents who were looking for healthier alternatives to Vaseline or traditional Butt Paste, Dr. Geary formulated the vedaBABY line which has since expanded to vedaMAMA and vedaDUDE. Natural and ayurvedic practices, combined with her seasoned pediatric knowledge, infuse Dr. Geary’s creams, scrubs, and butters with gentle and soothing recipes for healthy skin and all-around wellness. Using organic botanicals such as cocoa butter, avocado, organic jojoba, organic neem, and fragrant essential oils, makes these formulations feel incredible on the skin.
This is a luxurious line, compared to some less expensive brands, but a little goes a long way. There are very few products available that actually use completely natural ingredients in entirety. Even at some of my favorite health food stores, products that claim to be organic use parabens or preservatives. With this line, everything is pure. Some of my favorites are: vedaMAMA body butter which has lavender, orange and mango, vedaBABY calm moisturizing cream that contains organic coconut and aloe, and vedaBABY baby butt diaper balm which uses calendula, vitamin E and organic rose hip oil to keep babe’s butt from being irritated.
