Livandluv Skincare for Mom & Baby all started when I first became a new mom. Being in the skincare industry for the past 10 years as a medical esthetician and consultant for dermatologists and spas. I have always cared about the products I used for my clients but it wasn’t until the day I gave birth to my RED haired son that I realized how important it is to use the right product on a baby’s sensitive skin. My son Olivier “LIV” didn’t take after the dark skin of his parents but he was crazy like his Dad and a lover like his Mama –Tephy “LUV” (a childhood nickname!) That is how we became and started Liv and Luv. I have seen and treated all types of skin conditions but having this tiny ginger baby with porcelain skin was a whole new challenge! He also began suffering with bouts of eczema which made me even more mindful of what I used on his precious little body. With my love of the ocean, outdoors and sunshine being passed onto Liv, I knew I needed something amazingly effective and yet natural to keep him protected and safe. Sunscreens don’t have to be harmful! But so many baby sunscreens out there are containing chemicals such as oxybenzone, odinoxate, homosalate, parabens…etc. Those chemicals disrupt hormones and throw off the endocrine system. They also do harmful damage to our beautiful reef and eco system. It then became my mission to bring awareness to other mamas and bring them the best sun protection and skincare for their families.
Our sunscreen is a physical sunscreen with non-nano zinc oxide which provides a superior, broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It goes on smooth and spreads easy, no fuss just great protection so you can get back to the fun stuff!
Babies have a way to spread food, dirt and sand (in our case) everywhere including their hair. Our baby shampoo and body wash, is made with certified organic herbal blend and contains no harmful industry synthetics nor petro-chemicals. It cleans your baby gently and is safe for the most sensitive of skins. Leaves their hair shiny soft and the lavender is soothing and calms them for bed, Hey we’ll take that! We like to think of it as a 3 in one because you can add a cap to the running water to create a fun bubble bath for the kids!
At Liv and Luv, all of our products have been carefully formulated for their organic content and safety. We offer a gentle line for the whole family to use, from the beach to the bath.
Coming from Hawaii, aloha is important to how we live our life. Aloha is harmony, helpfulness, humility and unity. Our Ohana (family) comes first, meaningful friendships, counting our blessings, and giving to others. 10% of our profits are donated to local charities for babies and children who can use some aloha in their world.
Thank you for spreading the Aloha.
Our Goal is to Pamper, Prevent, and Protect you and your babies skin. We’re Proud to say all of our products are free of chemicals and other nasties that do not belong on your babies skin or the earths waterways!
