As you may have seen on the posters and swag bags for our April Mama + Me Market, Jannine from Nature’s Child is a major supporter of The Mama + Me Community. Since the very beginning of my Mama + Me journey she has supported my vision for this community and the benefits of our seasonal markets on the families of The Byron Shire. So it is only fitting that our community be the first to find out about the exciting new direction Jannine’s business is about to take and support her through it.
For twelve years Nature’s Child has been an iconic retail store in Byron Bay. They have run a number of highly successful Eco Parenting and Cloth Nappy Workshops and have been internationally recognized for their online organic baby shop. The most popular products from Nature’s Child are their Bottom Balm and Wonder Balm.
Jannine has thoroughly enjoyed her retail journey. She says “Some of the babies I sold nappies to years ago are now playing in the Mullumbimby Music Festival! Time has moved on and so must we. This is a super exciting time to enter the wholesale arena. We can reach so many more people this way and have a better chance of healing our planet with our organic products.”
For the last 9 months Jannine has been cultivating an ambitious new project to be the very first company in the world to have a 100% ACO Certified organic baby range. Our skin is the largest organ in our body so it can absorb anything that is applied to it. This is why it is so important for skincare products to be organic. In recent years, the importance of a Gluten Free Diet has rapidly become of high importance to many consumers so Jannine has added Gluten Free to the list of certifications for her skincare range as well. In addition to this, Nature’s Child refuses to use plastic in any of their packaging so they have beautiful, strong amber glass bottles to hold their skincare range.
The new Nature’s Child Organic Baby Range includes:
- Reusable Cloth Nappies
- Reusable Breast Pads
- Reusable Baby Wipes
- Reusable Face Wipes
- Baby Skincare
- Baby Amber Jewellery
- Reusable Nappy Liners
If you are interested in stocking any (or all) of these products you can contact Jannine via email to discuss her wholesale prices at email@example.com
Now for the most exciting news. Although Jannine has only just launched her brand new product range, she has already been named as one of the eight finalists for The Australian Organic Annual Awards in the Best Certified Organic Product of the Year (Cosmetic) category! This is a very prestigious award as it is not a paid endorsement and you don’t have to get votes. There is a panel of judges made up by Australian Organic Certifying Group members who decide the finalists and winners.
I hope you’ll join me in congratulating Jannine from Nature’s Child on this exciting new chapter in her business and national recognition. If you’d like to find out more or send a message of support, you can email her now at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find out more about her journey by reading Jannine’s ‘Hey Mama’ interview posted on our blog last year.
I’ll leave you with this quote from Jannine that so aligns with the mantra of The Mama + Me Community,
“The goal with our brand has always been simple. To do no harm in the entire chain of creating our products. From growing herbs and cotton to manufacturing fair trade to selling with organic certification, when you and your baby use our products, you can feel the pure difference of knowing they did not come at the cost of our earth.”
Thank you Jannine for being such a driving force for making a positive change on our earth for the sake of our babies future! The Mama + Me Community wish you all the best in the awards and in this new chapter of your business.
