I am BIG on organic especially when it comes to products and food for my son.
1. Nutrient substantiality.
Research has shown that organic foods, herbs and animals are higher in anti oxidants and nutrients.
2. NO PESTICIDES!!!!!!
Pesticides are designed to kill living organisms. Prolong exposure to pesticides causes harm to the health of animals and human.
3. NO GROWTH HORMONES
Growth hormones are often given to farm animals and plants to speed up their growth. Many scientific reports has stated that growth hormones may influence neoplastic tissue growth which in turns increases the risk of cancer. By using Organic, it reduces the human exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals.
4. NO GMOS!
This is a big big deal to me! Genetically modified organisms is a new technology with devastating impacts on human and animal health. Organic means NO GMOs are used.
Please read this report if you are interested in the harmful effects of GMOs :
5. No antibiotics.
Overuse of antibiotics leads to antibiotic resistance and this causes dangerous infections and allergies.
And this is why I always ONLY use ORGANIC products for my son. In Singapore, I am using GAIA ORGANIC NATURAL BABY PRODUCTS.
I ordered the GAIA products from : www.gaia.com.sg

Raedon's favourite GAIA product is the GAIA Skin Soothing Lotion.
He would squeeze it out of the tube and apply it on his legs himself.
We use the GAIA Skin Soothing Lotion at every diaper change on his butt. This thick cream contains zinc and beeswax which is perfect for protecting his skin. The Gaia Skin Soothing Lotion can also be used on the face and body to calm and soothe the skin. We always use it for any insect bites. It can also be used for irritations, eczema and dehydrated red skin.
