When I look for products for my little man I tend to be pretty picky and only want the best for him. Over the past three years we have tried many different brands of skin care and bath products on “Bug” and we have found a few that are favorites in our household. Recently I was introduced to Tellurian Baby and was given the opportunity to try out their line of baby bath and body products and I have to just give you a warning, “Bug” and I love these products!
About Tellurian Baby (taken from website):
Tellurian was founded by Jane Leeves and Ron Lewis. Jane Leeves has made her mark in the world of television, theatre and film. TV audiences know her as “Daphne Moon” in the long running hit series Frasier for which she won a SAG award and was nominated for an Emmy and Golden Globe. She can currently be seen as “Joy” on the new TV Land series Hot in Cleveland. Ron Lewis is the founder and president of Cosmetic Technologies one of the countries leading contract manufacturers of skin and hair care products. In his 35 year career he has been involved in creating thousands of skin and hair care product including many nationally and internationally known brands.
Q. What prompted you to start a line of Baby Products?
Well, going from 0 to 4 grandchildren in a 24 month period, having 2 of our staff members have babies in the same time period as well as my neighbor it seemed from my perspective that there was a second “baby boom” going on. It really prompted me take a serious look at the baby category. There was also a big expose in the Washington Post a year or so ago that revealed that there were a lot of questionable ingredients being used in baby care product. I felt the need and opportunity was big enough to do something about it.
Once I became a mother myself, I naturally started paying a lot more attention to what was going in my children as well as on them. I’ve tried a lot of different products with my kids. Once I got to know Ron I was convinced we could create something really special.
Q. How did you meet?
We were introduced by a mutual friend Vicki McCarty.
Vicki is a personal manager and knows a number of celebrities. A product line we had developed was accepted by one of the shopping channels. They were looking for a spokesperson so I called Vicki who suggested I meet with Jane. When I explained to Jane the time commitment she said she wasn’t willing to spend that much time away from her children. I was really touched and impressed by the priority she gave her children and family. When I thought of creating a baby line I knew Jane would be the perfect partner.
Q. What is unique about Tellurian Baby?
It stands out almost as much for what it doesn’t have as for what it does. The objective was to create products that were scientifically / dermatologically advanced and at the same time as pure and natural as possible. What evolved in the process is a redefinition of what natural skin care means. We are actually using the natural components of the skin to maintain the optimum condition of the skin. Although it has taken many years of research the concept in many ways is quite simple. We’ve referred to this as “skin care based on the nature of the skin itself”.
My biggest concern was making sure that we weren’t using any of the bad stuff and that the products were pure and gentle and effective as we could make them. I also wanted them to be as enjoyable to use as possible for both mom and baby. No matter how advanced they may be, if they don’t smell good, feel good and work well no one will want to use them, at least not more than once.
Q. What do you hope to achieve with your venture?
Besides making the best possible products, products that we can be proud of, Tellurian is really a vehicle for us to try to give back and hopefully create positive change in the lives of those less fortunate, particularly children.
We were sent an assortment of all the baby products available from Tellurian Baby to review: 2-N-1 Shampoo & Body Wash, Baby Oil, Baby Body Wash, Baby Shampoo, Baby Lotion and the Baby Diaper Cream (all seen above)! Our package arrived very quickly and I couldn’t wait to try them out at bath time especially after getting a sneak peak at the smell of each of them (they are heavenly!).
When our first bath time rolled around after these products arrived the hardest part was trying to decide which of the products we wanted to try first but we decided to go with the Baby Body Wash, Baby Shampoo and Baby Lotion. Now, when I choose a shampoo and body wash for my man I am very careful to make sure that they are tear-free because he does have a tendency to throw a tantrum when it’s time to wash the shampoo out of his hair and Tellurian Baby is just that tear-free so we used the shampoo with no tears and “Bug” said that it smelled really good and I have to totally agree, and it made his most of the time unruly hair look and smell amazing! I love that it tamed the wild stands of hair that tend to stick up at the very top of his head and it left his hair extremely shiny and soft! We also really enjoyed the body wash as well, it smells great and is very easy on his skin, other products we have tried has sometime broke him out but with Tellurian we had absolutely no problems and I noticed that it seemed to moisturize his skin as well to relive some of his itchy dry patches on his little arms. Of course afterwards we used the baby lotion in place of our usual after bath time lotions and again this product is great! It smells amazing and leaves our skin super soft and didn’t leave an oily residue like some other lotions we have tried.
We have also started using the 2-N-1 Shampoo & Body Wash and I have to admit that this is my absolute favorite out of all the products we received because it’s not only great to have the shampoo and body wash all in one but it cuts down on the clutter on the bathtub. This product smells just as great as the others and leaves “Bug’s” skin so soft and his hair silky smooth, shiny and looking great! Just between me and you I’ve used it a couple of times on my own hair and body and I love it! It’s so gentle that it makes my skin more moisturized and my hair looks amazing and I don’t have to use a conditioner!
We have used the baby oil and the diaper rash cream as well and I’m very impressed with the diaper rash cream, it is one of the best creams on the market as far as I am concerned! It seems to sooth his little bottom and clear up the rash rather quickly and “Bug” doesn’t fuss when I use this cream unlike some of the others that he says burns.
Simply put…..I absolutely love Tellurian Baby Products! As far as we are concerned they are the BEST products available on the market today! Not only are they super gentle and smell amazing they leave my son’s skin and hair looking beautiful and feeling silky smooth! I have a couple of friends who are expecting and I’m making diaper cakes and I can guarantee that I’m going to be tucking the 2-N-1 Shampoo & Body Wash, Baby Lotion and Diaper Rash Cream into the stack of diapers because I feel like every baby should be pampered the way only Tellurian Baby can!
If you are looking for the ultimate in luxury baby skin care products I highly suggest checking out the baby product like at Tellurian Baby and if you are looking for something special for the new mom or yourself check out their line of mom products as well….your babies skin will thank you!
