A peek into my babies' bathtime with Mustela

We've been using Mustela for our sons' bath time (although we're currently trying out Sebamed). I asked Vince to dig up photos of the boys taking a bath and he gave me these funny pics. Iñigo's just 10 months old here and Vito's just about to turn 3. They are so hilarious!

Mustela is a mommy-and-baby care line that offers natural, safe and innovative formulas for expecting moms, newborns and onwards. Even I use it to wash my face sometimes! They are hypoallergenic; tested by dermatologists and pediatricians; has no parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalate, EDTA, genetically modified plant extract, chlorphenesin, alcohol, SLS, etc.; and at least 92% of ingredients are from natural origins. They smell really good, too! 

When Mustela invited me to a little gathering with other moms to check out their new line called Mustela Bebe, I just had to go!

Here's what I learned:

The Mustela researchers discovered that: 
  • A newborn’s skin contains a rich cellular resource: a reserve of stem cells at its highest potential at birth
  • These cellular resources constitute the vital resources of baby’s skin and are needed for a lifetime
  • This stem-cell reserve remains extremely vulnerable during the first few years of life, while the cutaneous barrier is being built.    
  • It takes several years for the skin barrier to reach maturity.
  • While it is still being formed, the skin barrier is particularly vulnerable to daily stresses.
  • As a result, this fragility prevents it from effectively protecting the precious vital resource present in babies’ skin.  

Now, Mustela's Bebe and Sun Protection products have a new active ingredient called Avocado Perseose, which supports the development of the barrier function and protects the reserve of cells against day-to-day stresses. 

I will have to say that Mustela is an expensive brand. That's why I ask my sisters-in-law to give Mustela to the boys for their birthdays! (I know. I am such a party-pooper!) But the products are really worth it. Try them on your babies and on yourselves now!

Mustela is available in stand-alone kiosks in Ayala Trinoma, Robinson's Ermita, Glorietta 4, Shangrila Mall,  Megamall A, Greenhills, The Shops, Alabang Town Center, and Mall of Asia.  Shop-In-Shop: Rustan's and Landmark Department Stores, Mothercare, Pure Beauty, Numa Eco Baby Store, Medela House, and Chimes Department Store, Davao.

  1. Nanggigil ako kay Inigo. Ang cute cute! Ang bilog ng mata at ang chubby! Mukhang love na love nila ang isa't isa. Awww! <3

    "The complete line of products with helpful Mustela girls to tell you all about them." -- This is so true! Kapag bumibili ako sa Mustela (Rob. Ermita branch) ang dami dami ko munang tanong at lahat yun nasasagot ng maayos ng staff nila. Mustela girl pala tawag sakanila? hehe. Ang bait pa. :) Kahit mahal yung Mustela, very worth it nga! Pero gusto ko din i-try yung Sebamed. :p

    **Ms. France, na doble ko po ata ang comment ko. Pa-delete nalang po nung isa. Sorry! T_T

    1. Hindi na siya chubby now. We miss his chubs!

  2. Hi France, I have a question. I remember reading your blog about giving birth at SLMC and I was wondering if your babies Pedia is also there.. If so, what were the cost of you babies vaccines like

    1. Yes, the kids' pedia is Dr. Cricket Chen. She likes natural medicine but she also vaccinates. She's soooo expensive! Haha! Well, the vaccines cost us anywhere from 3K to 5K but kasama na consultation fee.


This is all pretty new to me so please feel free to share your mommy wisdom!
