Who is Love Munchkin?
An earth-conscious new mommy realized that all these self-proclaimed natural, un-complicated brands found on the shelves in all the stores, were not natural enough for her new baby. Products that you put on anyone you love and care for should be simple, safe and uncomplicated. A dictionary should not have to be pulled out to decipher the ingredients listed on a product deemed trustworthy. Nowadays, new findings are always popping up in the media. Things that you used without question, such as apple juice or formula, suddenly contain cancer causing ingredients. It shouldn't be this complicated, so we created products that are simple, safe and fun. No surprises here!
All of these ingredients are legible, explained, and well-researched. We are also very earth-friendly and use recycled materials whenever possible.
Who is Love Munchkin's Maker?
I am Linda Delepine, mother to toddler girl, and baby boy. I consider myself as holistic and homeopathic as an urbanite can be. Hypno-birthed both my babies with wonderful midwives. A definite natural birth advocate.
I am very aware of what goes into my children's bodies, as well as my husband and my own. I studied nutrition in college, and learned about the effects of artificial foods, preservatives, pesticides, GMO's and all other things unnatural. My senior thesis was based on the correlation of all these added demons in our everyday products and foods and their relation with autism in our society. This project opened the door to researching the consequences of everything else that we put into and onto our bodies, consequentially leading to my passion for all things natural and simplistic.
Therefore, becoming aware of the long-term effects of what we put into and onto our body, such as lead-laced skin products, I took into my own hands to make products for my baby and me, and my family. Products that are simple, clean and natural that I can share with everyone that yearns for the uncomplicated. A more holistic approach to skin care, after all, you're body is your temple!
What are we?
So far, we are skin nourishing oils made from the highest quality natural plant based ingredients. We plan on expanding in the future to other natural products that we need to make our lives as simple and uncomplicated as possible.
We are labels that you can read and feel secure and comfortable about using with no hidden words or ciphered jargon. Our products are housed in BPA-free containers as well as being paraben-free (no chemicals & preservatives) and vegan (no animal products & never tested on animals).
Containers are tested to be as ergonomic as possible, so whenever using either on yourself or your child, it's as easy and mess-free as possible.
Why Love Munchkin came into existence:
Our little munchkin was born October 2010, her delicate skin couldn't tolerate anything that was found on a shelf in baby stores, even if they boasted "hypo-allergenic, newborn, sensitive, etc." not to mention their ludicrous prices. So research was started, and we found that other cultures would just put simple plain oils on their babies. Oils, we found, served more than one purpose when put onto skin. Bonding would be initiated when parent massaged the oil onto baby, and the massaging also induced a state of calm in baby, and aided in digestion. Making post-bath time and dressing baby easeful.
