Dynamic mother and daughter duo, Vanessa and Kara-Leigh are in pursuit of natural products of a different kind; as they navigate nine months of preparing to fall in love for a lifetime, with the French Lemon Mom-to-Be Collection.
Beautifully birthed out of Kara-Leigh’s own pregnancy, the inspiration behind the Collection came from the uncertainty of knowing what you can and cannot use during pregnancy. Having established a respected and reputable proudly South African cruelty-free brand, French Lemon have taken the guesswork out of what is found inside their products, in order to prevent absorbing harmful toxins through skin, bath and body routines, that may adversely affect pregnancy.
Continually propelling their business forward, they have developed, tried and tested products that cleanse, nourish, moisturise and soothe skin from head to toe; that will not only pamper and soothe expectant mothers, but that are safe for prgenancy as well, and that they know their clientele would love to see and buy.
Pregnancy is a beautiful phase that affords women the joy and fulfilment of bringing a new life into the world, despite the many changes a woman’s body undergoes. Handmade with love, the French Lemon Mom-to-Be Collection is made with safe and suitable natural ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil and medicinal Aloe Ferox, designed to target and ease the side effects of pregnancy, such as nausea, fatigue, headaches, stretch marks and lack of sleep. No artificial colourants or scents are used, and the products need to be used within 3 months, as natural preservites are used. All products in the Collection are vegan, and use essential oils that are deemed safe for pregnancy, but can continue to be used after pregnancy too.
Carrying a baby is the most rewarding experience a woman can enjoy, and French Lemon know how essential it is for expectant mothers to look after themselves during the nine months of pregnancy. There is a selection of product offerings to pamper, prepare, relax, restore, aid, alleviate and accentuate the many milestones on the journey to motherhood in the French Lemon Mom-to-Be Collection.
Magnesium Flakes promote restful sleep for pregnant women, and help to regulate hormones, relieve muscle cramps, stimulate blood circulation, strengthen the immune system, and fight off dizziness, depression and fatigue. These flakes are best enjoyed in a relaxing bath.
The selection of sugar scrubs enable the preservation of the skin’s elasticity during pregnancy. Increasing blood circulation while eliminating dry flaky skin, the scrubs place moisture back into the skin, while reducing the appearance of cellulite. Comprised of chamomile, this is an essential oil that aids anxiety, promotes restful sleep and is an excellent anti-inflammatory.
For the prevention of morning sickness, nausea, muscle cramps and headaches;
an anti-nausea ointment fortified with magnesium, ginger and peppermint essential oils is designed to be rolled onto the temples and wrists to eliminate these side effects of pregnancy; while promoting sleep, relieving stress and combating fatigue. The anti-nausea soap bar, made with peppermint and spearmint essential oils, employs the benefits of activated charcoal, as the bar is lightly massaged over the skin.
A growing stomach means stretching skin, which can lead to the appearance of stretch marks. The belly balm allows the skin to soften and stretch, without becoming irritated; and the inclusion of lemon, ylang ylang, chamomile, bergamot, ginger and peppermint soothes the skin while keeping it supple.
Your body deserves to be pampered while working hard at creating a miracle, and skin should be massaged regularly with a luxurious massage oil. Created with the soothing scents of chamomile, ylang ylang and lemon essential oils, this is the ultimate act of love for your body as it is moulded and shaped to accommodate the growing life inside.
A decidedly different take on soaps, scrubs, salts and scents; this Mom-to-Be Collection from French Lemon echoes the ethos of kindness and compassion, towards expectant mothers. If you’re becoming a mother yourself, or would like to spoil and celebrate a woman in your life who is on the journey to motherhood; the French Lemon Mom-to-Be Collection is available exclusively online at www.frenchlemon.co.za
