Are your babies’ dry red cheeks causing you heartache this holiday season?

December 30 2014 – Raji Kalra

We all love babies' rosy red cheeks in holiday pictures! It's the cutest thing, but as mom's it is not so cute when they are chapped and dry due to the harsh winter conditions that come with the holiday. A couple weekends ago we attended the IX Center’s Christmas Connection in Cleveland, Ohio. It was a great show and we met lots of wonderful people. One common theme among the mom’s we talked to was “my child’s cheeks are so chapped and red and it’s even worse now that the weather is so cold and dry”. This is a pain point for us as mom’s too, and our solution? Raw cocoa butter and calendula found in Shoosha’s Rescue Nipple Balm!

We offered parents the opportunity to put this little pot of gold on their small one’s cheeks (some babies even tried to eat it, I’m sure because they love the chocolaty smell of the raw cocoa butter, but no worries… this product is USDA organic – so it’s literally safe to eat!). Parents were so pleased with the results in just a short trip around the expo; they were back to buy the product before they left. Why is our Rescue Nipple Balm so effective in helping to nourish the dry, red cheeks babies’ suffer from this time of the year? The ingredients - check them out below!

Always Pure. Organic. True.
