Recently Liam and I found ourselves in the company of Zwitsal, a baby product that has been in the market since year 1900. Yes, that means it is 116 years old!
The reason why you probably have not heard about it despite its long history is because it’s always been a European brand. In fact it is the number 1 brand in Netherlands.
Fortunately for us on this side of the world, it has decided to enter (or re-enter, apparently they were around some decades ago?) the Asian market and now we’re all able to get our hands on this lovely baby skincare that is known for being wonderful to our bubba’s skin.
Zwitsal basically has two ranges of products; “Classic” and “Natural”. All its products under the “Classic” umbrella contain extract from Canola flowers – a naturally moisturising ingredient. As for “Natural”, the products contain natural ingredients such as milk, honey, aloe vera and even citronella.
Zwitsal is also safe for sensitive baby skin as they have been tested for hypo-allergenic with pH balanced formulation so it is definitely a bonus!

Firstly, lets talk about Zwitsal’s bath products. Love the “Milk & Honey Baby Bath”. Liam’s always smells delicious and nommable after a bath. Needless to say, his skin loves it too.

I never needed baby shampoo before but Liam’s hair grown a lot now so he needs to get his hair washed and Zwitsal’s “2-in-1 Hair and Body” bath really comes in handy. It is especially great for travelling as I don’t need to lug too many things just for his bathtime! It’s got aloe vera and Pro Vitamin B5 in it which is great for hair. Oh, and it contains celery and candlenut too. Pretty interesting I would say! Again, something I steal for myself sometimes too, hehehehe.

My favourite product from Zwitsal is definitely the “Baby Skin Protector Lotion with Citronella”. It’s a moisturiser and also a mosquito repellent in one convenient tube! There’s none like it in the market currently!
Gawd knows all us mummies have been struggling with keeping our bubs from being mossie feed. I’m really bad with remembering to put on mozzie patches on Liam but I moisturise his skin daily so this is just perfect for us. I am also not going to say how many times I have nicked Liam’s Zwitsal moisturiser for myself hehe.
For mummies who prefer the classic skin lotion (cause you’re a purist), Zwitsal has one infused with just canola and jojoba oil and is perfect to be applied to the entire body after bath time. I use it pretty regularly too when we’re at home with air-conditioning on, you know when there’s no threat from beastly mosquitoes.

One of the great things about Zwitsal that has really made an impression on me is its scent. Whether it’s the baby powder, skin lotion or bath solution, it’s extremely mild and pleasant and it doesn’t mask Liam’s natural scent.
I never really understood why some other brands made such strongly scented baby products cause I’ve never met a baby who has B.O, if you know what I mean? Nobody wants their kids to smell like a working woman’s handbag, hello? So thank you Zwitsal for not making overpowering smelling stuff!
To my delight, Zwitsal’s “Fresh Floral Baby Power” smells faintly of fresh roses and vanilla. So delicious and it’s infused with canola oil so hello softer baby skin!
# – Smell of roses and vanilla, yummy!
All in all, we’re very happy with Zwitsal. I most definitely will recommend Zwitsal if you’re looking for affordable and safe baby skincare. It’s available at most pharmacies near you.
