Good For: Sensitive Skin, Irritated Skin, Eczema, All Skin Types
For those precious moments between baby and parent, we believe that only natural ingredients should touch a baby’s delicate skin. Our natural baby soap is specially formulated for babies and children.
Our natural baby soap is the perfect marriage of goat milk, organic oat flour, and honey. Extra gentle, unscented, and moisturizing, our natural baby soap is a soothing choice for babies and those with sensitive or dry skin and irritated skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
Bath time provides special bonding time between baby and parent. While bathing, use your fingertips to gently stroke and massage your baby's arms, legs, tummy, and back. A gentle bath and massage before bedtime can help calm and soothe your baby for a good night's rest. Read more about, "Natural Baby Massage."

How to Use
Avoid contact with eyes.
Use The Bar: Wet the bar and massage gently on the skin to create lather and wash. Rinse well and pat dry.
Washcloth Washers: A very gentle massage with a soft washcloth can help remove dead cells associated with cradle cap and eczema. Be sure washcloths are allowed to dry and laundered often.
Shampoo: Our Baby soap also makes a great natural baby shampoo. Simply create a bit of lather in your hands and shampoo away. While we only use simple, natural and organic ingredients, it is soap, so take care to keep the soap away from baby's eyes.
For problems with cradle cap, just before shampooing, gently massage the baby's scalp with your fingers or a very, very soft brush to loosen the scales. Read more about "Natural Help for Cradle Cap"

Stutzman Farms, in Millersburg, is located right in the heart of the beautiful Ohio Amish farms of Holmes County. Monroe Stutzman runs the main Stutzman grains farm where they grow and mill organic grains in the traditional stone-ground fashion.
Stutzman Farms focuses on local and organic farming, as well as an on-site mill.
They do not bleach their flours or oats and do not use bromate or preservatives. They have many customers who follow a gluten-free diet and use their sprouted rolled oat and spelt flour. He has an amazing device called a ‘puffer’ which he uses to puff rice and corn that they then sweeten and sell all over Ohio.
Monroe's brother Arlie runs "Ice Shanty Cheese" and makes cheese from 100% grass-fed cow’s milk.
At Chagrin Valley Soap we believe in the power of small businesses and know they are the engine that drives our country. Small business owners and employees have expertise in their industry, passion for the products they manufacture and sell, value their customers and take a special pride in their trade.
We often receive questions as to whether our soaps, shampoos, and other items are safe to use on young children.
A baby’s skin, so thin and delicate, is no place for harmful synthetic chemicals. Sadly, even some of the most trusted baby brands add nasty chemicals to their products.
Read the label on a bar of commercial baby soap or shampoo. Read the label on a bottle of commercial baby oil. Now read the ingredients in Chagrin Valley products.
We recommend starting with our Milk & Honey Baby Soap. We also recommend our three Castile soaps and Carrot & Honey Soap. They are unscented and, as with all of our products, contain no artificial ingredients!
My grandkids use our Milk & Honey bar as a baby shampoo--just keep the soap away from their eyes.
When you think your child is ready, try some new soaps.
As with all new products, it is best to do a skin patch test prior to full usage to test for any skin allergies or sensitivities. If you have any questions or concerns always check with your doctor or health care professional.
It is best to add only one new soap or product at a time and use it for a while before switching to a new soap.
Essential Oils & Children: We do not provide information on the safety of essential oils for use in Children because the available information is very ambiguous and often contradictory. If you are interested in using essential oils with young children please consult your health care professional before use.
Please do not ask us to diagnose your child's skin problems, we are not health care professionals. Our recommendations are based on what our customers have shared.

The Short Answer
NO! Adding antibacterial chemicals to soap does not keep your family safe from germs.
I understand why folks (especially those with children) are choosing products labeled “Antibacterial,” hoping to keep their family safe in the war against germs.
"Consumers may think antibacterial washes are more effective at preventing the spread of germs, but we have no scientific evidence that they are any better than plain soap and water," said Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). “In fact, some data suggests that antibacterial ingredients may do more harm than good over the long-term.”
Simply washing your hands with old-fashioned natural soap and water rids your skin of most fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Soap does not kill germs, it surrounds them and carries them away.
