PRODUCTS MADE FOR MAMAS + THEIR sweet BABIES
This line was crafted for functionality, beauty and safety during pregnancy and beyond. Because of this, each product is scented at about 1%, or in other words, mildly enough to be safe for pregnant women and babies. All of the essential oils used are either 100% safe in all stages of pregnancy, or are in small enough measurements to be used safely in the second trimester and beyond. Regardless, it is advisable for pregnant women to avoid all natural herbs and essential oils during the first trimester of pregnancy, so as not alter the body's delicate equilibrium (plants can be very powerful.) The same goes for babies under three months of age-- only use our baby products after your baby is three months old . When first pregnant, it is recommended for mamas to use our Beautiful Belly Butter as a safe all-over moisturizer (including the face), as there are no added essential oils. Beginning in the second trimester, all of the Dani Kenney products are safe to use, provided you do not have a high-risk pregnancy (in which case always consult with your doctor before any new product by anyone.) Our products are formulated to be very mild and safe, but if you are unsure or have in any doubt, please consult with your doctor or health practitioner prior to purchase.
INGREDIENTS + MATERIALS
DANI KENNEY bodycare contains all organic and natural ingredients. Everything on this site is something that Dani uses on herself or on her own baby, so she has done her research into the safety and beauty of ingredients offered. Our quality ingredients are sourced from conscious small companies around the United States and our studio is located in the little beach town of Naples, Florida. We make our products by hand, and in small batches in our studio, to maintain freshness. If we run out of something, we will let you know and make a new batch as soon as possible.
Our packaging is either dark amber glass, clear glass (only one product, our baby powder) and BPA-free food grade plastic (just for our soaps and cleaner spray, which we do for safety reasons, so as not to have glass in the shower, etc.) We choose dark amber to help prevent light from getting into our products. The dark amber helps maintain the integrity, freshness and effectiveness of our ingredients.
