I’ll preface this post by giving massive thanks to Pure Skin Lab for sending me this lovely Sophie the Giraffe Baby skincare set when Cara was born. It was a lovely surprise and I felt so happy when I opened the wonderful box with mama and baby gifts inside.
Sophie the Giraffe Baby skincare has been around a while now, and I’ve longed to try it since discovering the range when we bought a Sophie the Giraffe teether for my son, Jonah.
Il était une fois ~ Once upon a time
“Sophie la Girafe” has been well-loved since 1961 as a natural and healthy teething toy, so the skincare range has a lot of history to live up to.
My first impressions of the range are that it’s both very elegant and good quality. I would also say luxury, since the hair and body wash costs £14.
The entire range is Ecocert certified natural and organic, and suitable for sensitive skin.
What do I love most about the range?
The beautiful natural fragrance of soft vanilla that’s used across the entire range really appeals. It won’t overpower your baby’s natural smell, but it still lingers a little after use. It’s so soft and delicate, and just lovely for babies.
Another thing I love is that the entire range is 100% vegan – no beeswax or lanolin at all.
Thirdly, I love the packaging design – it’s very elegant. Sophie looks as iconic as the Eiffel Tower proudly adorning the front of the bottles. If you’re planning a beautiful nursery and want perfect baby skincare products to complement it, here you are.

Let’s take a look at the entire range.
Hair & Body Wash
This gel wash shifts grime, but is gentle enough to use on a one month old. It foams a little, but not overly so. Both my children have soft, detangled, sweet smelling hair after I wash them with it.
It has some lovely ingredients including white tea to protect the skin during washing, lavender water and oat milk to soothe sensitive and allergy-prone skin, and cotton to moisturise, condition, and deal with tangles.
Sophie the Giraffe Baby Hair & Body Wash
My toddler really loves this one. It’s quite thick and needs to be squeezed from the tube. Like the others in the range, it smells lovely. It creates a fair amount of bubbles that last quite some time in the bath. A fun way to get clean all over!
White tea fortifies the skin and provides antioxidant protection, and lavender water prevents skin irritations. Reassuringly, the cleansing and foaming ingredients are of vegetable origin.
Sophie the Giraffe Baby Bubble Bath
This is a light but rich cream that prevents moisture from evaporating on the skin. I use this most days on Cara’s cheeks and forehead since they tend to get a little dry. I’m impressed with it! Her skin has healed well since we started to use it.
White tea features again – in the face cream it protects the skin from UVA rays and pollution. Lavender water soothes redness and irritation. Nourishing jojoba oil protects the skin, while shea butter prevents moisture evaporation. Nordic blueberry oil extract soothes and strengthens delicate skin.

SOS Cream Face & Body
This is a handy multipurpose cream for face and body. It’s thicker and richer than the face cream. We’ve used it as a nappy rash cream, where it’s brought down redness and soothed the nappy area. We’ve also used it as a weather protecting face cream. A few dabs on the cheeks and forehead brings peace of mind that my children’s skin is protected from winter sun and wind. It doesn’t leave white marks like some suncreams, although there’s no UV rating given to the protection.
There are some really lovely ingredients in this cream to protect and pamper your baby’s skin. White tea fortifies the skin and provides antioxidant protection. Macadamia wax and shea butter form a protective yet breathable layer on the skin. Aloe vera and lavender water soothe, while thyme and tea tree extract help to prevent and relieve inflammation.

We use this on the back of Jonah’s arms which have recently become rough with the weather. It’s a rich body lotion, yet it absorbs quickly. The consistency is quite thick, and I prefer that over a runny lotion which runs through my fingers and drips on the floor! The fragrance is a little different to the others, it’s slightly spicier. It’s definitely improved Jonah’s arms with a few applications after his bath.
As for the ingredients, there’s antioxidant white tea, jojoba oil, cocoa butter and shea butter to moisturise and protect, lavender water to soothe and prevent irritation, and skin-loving oat milk to moisturise, soothe, and relieve inflammation.
Sophie the Giraffe Baby Body Lotion
This beautiful baby oil is perfect for baby massage and cleaning the nappy area. It smells divine, probably a bit bolder than the rest of the range. I like to use this for a little massage for Cara after her bath. I really love the flip top opening which controls the amount coming through – only a small amount is needed.
Like all Sophie the Giraffe products, the baby oil contains fortifying white tea for antioxidant protection. It also contains lavender extract to soothe the skin in a base of sunflower, olive, jojoba, and apricot kernel oil to nourish, moisturise and protect.
