ChamonixRain Organics is an Australian made and owned company that produces natural coconut skincare. We are a brand built on a deep love and respect for nature and a desire to make natural plant-based products of the highest quality accessible for everyone.
Our products were originally created for babies; however, due to an overwhelming demand from adults to develop products targeted at a more mature skin which was just as safe, natural and nourishing, our adult range was created. All products are proudly Australian made, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free and made using the finest natural and certified organic ingredients to gently cleanse and intensely hydrate your skin and hair.
Today, the range comprises of 4 products, 2 for baby and 2 for adult. With 4 more vegan-friendly plant-based products being released in 2020. Two of which are Australian first products.
You may be wondering, “Why coconut oil?”
It’s no secret that we are completely obsessed with organic coconut oil! Which is why we have developed our natural skincare range around this amazing ingredient. It is rich in fatty acids, vitamin E, antioxidants which do wonders for your hair and skin. It will moisturise, hydrate, reduce inflammation, and may also assist with wound healing. This wonderful oil has medium-chain fatty acids that possess antimicrobial properties which can also protect the skin from harmful bacteria.
Nature has provided us with some amazing ingredients that effectively hydrate, nourish and protect our skin. We have carefully selected many of its finest including; aloe vera juice, jojoba, avocado oil and vitamin E (just to name a few) combining them with coconut oil to create our award-winning natural skincare range. We don’t use any unnecessary chemical fillers, just the highest quality natural & certified organic ingredients that will leave your skin feeling healthier and softer than you ever thought possible.
“Tell us more about how your coconut skincare is beneficial!”
Coconut oil is found in so many products today. When walking down the isle of your local supermarket, pharmacy or beauty store that carry hair, body, and skincare products – you will be sure to see many products that also contain this magical oil. But what differs between ChamonixRain and a lot of those brands, is that we combine this with our unique blend of 99.9% naturally derived ingredients. We do not use soap, SLS, parabens, petrochemicals, formaldehyde or synthetic fragrances as they can strip the skin of its natural oils, which is a contributing factor in many skin issues.
What we love about coconut oil is that it is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and intensely moisturising. This is thanks to the nourishing fatty acids and lauric acid, paired with vitamin E, vitamin A, antioxidants and healthy fats that aids in maintaining smooth and healthy skin. The many customer reviews on our website are testament to this.
The health of your Skin is SO important!
Your skin also works as a barrier, regulates our temperature and provides us with a sense of touch.
It has three layers: The epidermis, the outermost layer of your skin, which provides a waterproof barrier that also creates your skin tone. Then there is the dermis, which contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands. Lastly, there is the hypodermis, which is the deeper subcutaneous tissue made of fat and connective tissue providing insulation for your body.
It is the largest organ in the body and has an incredible array of functions which all attribute to our daily health. Because it is so large and absorbs up to 60% of what we apply to it, it is important to remain cautious about the types of skincare products that we choose to use for both ourselves and our little ones.
With this in mind, what do you think happens when your skin absorbs those synthetic fragrances and chemicals which we choose to cleanse and moisturise it with? If you were thinking it may end up in your bloodstream, you are correct! Those ingredients may temporarily make your skin and hair look shiny for a little while and make your skin smell like roses for an hour or two, but these toxins aren’t doing any favours for your overall wellbeing. They take away precious natural oils and moisture from the skin and won’t give you any long-lasting benefits, which is why it is so important to begin taking care of your skin at a young age, by using products that will continue to benefit it in the long run.
Bathing your baby with our natural coconut baby wash & shampoo
Bath time is a great time to bond, distraction-free with your baby as they enjoy the relaxing sensation of the warm water on their skin. Beyond the health and emotional benefits, it also offers many cognitive and developmental benefits thanks to the 4 senses which are engaged during this special time, including sight, smell, hearing and touch. It’s also the perfect opportunity to engage one-on-one with your baby through lots of eye contact, talking, singing, laughter and smiles. To create those beautiful childhood memories together.
Our award-winning baby wash & shampoo is delicately scented with our unique coconut aroma to ensure your little one is feeling completely relaxed in their very own tropical oasis. It is gentle enough to be lathered in your hands and applied directly onto your baby’s skin and hair, or you can also choose to create a relaxing chemical-free bubble bath by pumping the required amount of product under running water.
For newborns, it is recommended that you use either water alone on their skin for the first 4 weeks or pump a small amount of the product directly into their warm bath. This is of course, completely at your discretion on how you feel is the best way to wash your baby’s skin & hair.
Moisturising your skin
How many times have you heard the saying ‘As soft as a baby’s bottom’? Not only do we all want beautifully soft skin for ourselves but for our baby’s as well. A key step in achieving this is by massaging a natural non- toxic moisturiser into their skin straight after bath time.
A post-bath massage with our lightweight, non-greasy moisturiser – is a lovely opportunity to not only add moisture to protect your baby’s sensitive skin, but it is also a great way to bond with your baby whilst helping them relax before bedtime.
Coconut oil is also AMAZING for your little one’s hair
Coconut oil is obviously great for your skin, but it also does wonders for your child’s scalp and hair. Not only is it an incredibly powerful deep cleanser (the best eye make-up remover ever), but it is also a saviour for dry and damaged hair by leaving it feeling beautifully soft, shiny and well-nourished.
This wonderful oil is rich in lauric acid, which has a low molecule weight that allows it to penetrate inside the hair better than many other oils…. nourishing each strand with essential vitamins and minerals.
Your little one’s hair can change quickly as they age. From babies to toddlers and school-aged children, they change a lot, do a lot, and therefore need a lot of love and attention. If your youngster has damaged hair from swimming or playing in the sun for too long, using our products will help their hair become more hydrated by strengthening and protecting their locks. Reducing unwanted damage that may otherwise attribute to dry and brittle hair.
You may be thinking, “A lot of other products tell me the same thing…what makes this so special?” First and foremost, you must understand that many of these other products that include coconut oil, may also include an array of other unnatural ingredients as well. Ingredients such as soap, SLS and parabens, synthetic fragrances etc. that just don’t offer many results in the long run.
Our products are simple, natural and effective. This is what we pride ourselves on being and just some of the reasons that our popular coconut baby wash & shampoo won first place in the 2019 Eco Excellence awards for best hair care for kids.
We believe your little one’s hair is just as important as their skin, so why not treat it as such?
“So, it is safe for my children?”
Absolutely! Our products are safe for children of all ages, including babies and those with sensitive skin. You can use any of our natural coconut baby skincare products on their delicate skin to add moisture and hydration all year long. We do, of course always recommend testing on a small area of their skin to ensure our products are suitable for your little one.
Choosing Nature to Nurture your skin
As babies skin barrier is much thinner than adults, and they lose moisture much quicker – it is important to use natural ingredients, which have been uniquely formulated to prevent dryness and irritation.
Each ingredient within our luxury line of natural coconut skincare has been carefully selected to gently nurture your entire family’s skin… for an unrivalled feeling of softness and hydration – that you never knew you were missing.
