As a first-time mom, I had no clue where to start when it came to understanding which baby products would be best for my baby. So, like many moms, I relied on Google searches, mommy magazines, and product reviews to be my source of truth for insight and product information. After being overwhelmed by information overload, I learned that the only way I would truly learn if a brand or product worked for my baby boy was to try it out!
When my son was first born, I initially started using the baby products that were gifted to me at my baby shower since I already had them at home. I was gifted baby product bundles from big brands, and let me tell you something – those brands did not work for my little one. They left my son's skin with irritation, rashes, and eczema flare-ups, and I was devastated. This experience taught me that I could not just use any ol' product and that I had to be more selective with his skincare. I started to do my own research to find baby products made with clean, gentle ingredients formulated with melanated skin in mind, and my research led me to PROUDLY.
What prompted me to try PROUDLY was their ingredient transparency and how they highlighted their exclusion of “sketchy stuff” in their formulas! Once I learned from my son's pediatrician that he had eczema, ingredient transparency became increasingly important to me. I also loved that PROUDLY products were developed for us, by us, with insight from a team of Black experts—including a dermatologist, pediatrician, and chemist who have studied and selected ingredients that nourish Black and brown babies' dry and sensitive skin.
I placed an order for their Skincare Collection Bundle right away to get a sense of their general product collection, and, honestly, within a few days of use, I noticed that my son's skin irritation started to clear. His skin appeared to be calmer, hydrated, and happy! At this point, I was sold and had given PROUDLY my personal stamp of approval.
Now, PROUDLY is the brand I gift all my friends for their baby showers so they can start building their little ones' product collection with the best brand for Black and brown babies.
Why PROUDLY gets my mom's stamp of approval:
- Ingredient Transparency: PROUDLY always lets you know what's in their products with a clear, easy-to-understand definition on proudly.com. Learn more about their commitment to ingredient transparency here!
- Plant-based ingredients: Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, and Mango Butter are just some of the plant-powered ingredients jam-packed into PROUDLY products to moisturize dry, sensitive skin.
- Affordability: Other clean and plant-based brands can break the bank, but PROUDLY has an approachable and affordable price point.
- Convenience: The convenience and ease of shopping on proudly.com for bundles and subscriptions is the best, but you also have the option to shop at your local Target store, which is a huge win.
Mom to mom, PROUDLY is a brand that is Mom-Approved. It's an AMAZING brand you can trust, and I highly recommend it for your little ones.
