Babies are constantly crawling, moving, reaching, tasting, eating and testing everything with which they come in contact. This can cause some strife when they are exposed to dangerous chemicals from their environment. Babyganics solves this problem with a series of products that are safe, fun and allow babies to explore their surroundings safely and happily. Babyganics will be at the New York Baby Show on May 14th and 15th, at Pier 92.
The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler. From top products to trusted parenting experts, the New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!
Tickets to the New York Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.
We spoke with Corinne Marcello, Brand Activation Manager for Babyganics, to learn more.
For someone unfamiliar with Babyganics, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
In short, Babyganics is all about creating a ‘baby-safe’ world. Everything in a baby’s world is an invitation to explore. So we want to help parents make that exploration safe with products that care for their baby and clean that exciting world they’ll discover. We carry everything from diapers, wipes, bath and body products, and household cleaners – all made with plant-based ingredients and free of harsh chemicals.
What is the background of Babyganics? What was it started, and how has it evolved since then?
The company was started about 10 years ago when founder Kevin and his wife were expecting their first child, and were searching for natural products that were baby-safe. They couldn’t find what they were looking for, but the idea of creating Babyganics was born! Kevin partnered with his childhood friend Keith (a fellow dad) and they set out on a mission to create totally safe, totally effective products that parents can actually find and afford.
Since then, the company has expanded with an extensive product line and has seen a large following of loyal parents emerge and help spread the word on Babyganics!
What the most popular and/or newest products from Babyganics?
Our Hand Sanitizing line is a favorite amongst our customers since all of the products are alcohol-free and non-drying. In recent years, we’ve seen a huge increase in our Sun care line with our pure mineral and mineral-based sunscreen formulas. We also have some great new products launching this spring, including our Natural Wool Dryer Balls (part of Target’s Made To Matter program) and our Color Changing Disposable Swim Pants just in time for summer!
What sets Babyganics apart from other baby product companies on the market today?
We are first and foremost driven by our baby-safe standards by which we measure everything we make, from baby lotion to laundry detergent, dish soap to diapers and more. We make sure all of our products (and each and every ingredient that goes into them) are safe to use on or around babies so they can do what babies do best – crawl, splash, explore and discover the world around them. All of our products are rigorously tested so when you bring it home to your family, you know it will work just as promised.
What can parents expect to see from Babyganics at the New York Baby Show?
We have some new, exciting products to share along with our regular fan favorites! Families can come by to try, smell, touch, and learn more about our entire product line and take some samples home to try out on their little ones! We are parents too, so we love meeting other parents and sharing stories, tips, and tricks with one another. We’re looking forward to a fun two days at the show!
