Motherhood is a bliss and being a mommy is the best thing ever. Motherhood brings a sense of joy, completeness and responsibility. Every mother always looks out for the best for their little ones and gives them the best. But while giving her best for her baby, every mother forgets about herself.
A brand that understands being a mommy is a blessing comes up with the most beautiful tagline – “Sabse Pehle Maa Aur Maa Ke Liye Sabse Pehle Himalaya“. Yes, I am talking about Brand Himalaya – a very well-known herbal brand since 1930. They have covered almost everything we need in our lives and offer a wide range of products for both mommies and babies that are suitable for all skin types.
Recently, I had the privilege to attend an exclusive Mom & Baby event by Himalaya. It was a fun event specially organized for us, moms, who dedicate our complete time for our babies. The event was aptly named “My Baby & Me” and had a beautiful punchline “Sabse Pehle Maa Aur Maa Ke Liye Sabse Pehle Himalaya”
Dr. Subhashini N.S., who is an Ayurvedic Doctor and an esteemed part of Himalaya Research & Development team, gave us insights into Himalaya Mom Care & Baby Care range of products, and how they are made with an amalgamation of Ayurveda and research and are well tested before they are launched in the market.
Himalaya has an entire Baby Care range that includes essentials for the little ones, made with love and the essence of Nature, keeping it mild and gentle for babies. From the roots of Ayurveda, Himalaya also brings mom care products for the special needs of a woman before, during, and post pregnancy
Ayurveda is like a treasure chest that has a solution for every single need, be it taking care of your health or pampering your skin. Himalaya, one of the most trusted herbal brands, brings out the best products formulated with the essence of Nature and backed by research, to give the best for cute little ones and their pretty mommies.

Himalaya has an entire range of products for mommies and babies made with the goodness of Ayurveda & herbs. I have been using Himalaya Products for my son ever since he was born and now I tried few products from Himalaya Moms Range and I am simply loving them to the core.
As winters are around the corner, dry skin bothers me the most and I just love using body butters and I have used many brands, but the best I found is from Himalaya.
Himalaya Soothing Body Butter – I have been using two variants of soothing body butter by Himalaya for almost a month now and loving them to the core.
Packaging: Himalaya soothing body butter comes in a Jar with an easy to handle cover. The packaging is nice and travel-friendly.
Ingredients: The main ingredients of Himalaya soothing body butter are :
- Cocoa butter – It soothes, hydrates and nourishes the skin. It is a natural antioxidant and balances the skin well.
- Glycerin – It helps to soothe the dryness and as glycerin locks the moisture in the skin, it helps in keeping skin hydrated for long.
The body butter is thick and very moisturizing. This body butter is specially formulated for pregnant women, as during pregnancy the body goes through lots of expanding and shrinking, it needs lots of care to soothe dryness and itchiness. This body butter with vitamin E, cocoa butter and glycerin can relieve itchiness and soothe dry skin.
We can use it as normal body butter too, to soothe your dry, dull skin during winters.
Why I Love It : Himalaya Soothing Body Butter is very affordable and comes in various sizes. The thick texture of body butter glides smoothly on skin and keeps it super soft. It also heals dry skin and provides maximum relief. It makes skin feel fresh and stays for long.
I used two variants – Soothing Body Butter Rose and Soothing Body Butter Lavender. I love both as they have pleasing fragrances which help in relieving stress too.
Himalaya Soothing Body Butter comes in three fragrances, Available in 50ml, 100ml and 200ml packs –
- Calming fragrance of Lavender
- Rejuvenating fragrance of Jasmine
- Uplifting fragrance of Rose
Price of this body butter is very reasonable 50 ml – INR 120/-, 100 ml – INR 200/-, 200 ml – INR 320/-
Another important product in every women’s must-haves is a product for intimate hygiene and Himalaya comes up with two amazing products for the same.
- Himalaya Intimate Wash.
- Himalaya Intimate Wipes.
Himalaya Intimate Wash: An intimate wash should be a part of your daily routine, whether pregnant or not. I have been using this since the past few days and I like it. It’s very gentle on the skin and cleanses the area well. It doesn’t dry out the skin and it claims to be safe to use during and post pregnancy.
Himalaya intimate wash maintains the vaginal PH balance between 3.5-4.5 and your intimate area smells fresh through the day. The Intimate Wash enriched with Tea Tree Oil that helps relieve itching and irritation and Pongamia Oil helps prevent odour with its anti-fungal property.
Packaging: It comes in a bottle tightly sealed with a green flip top cap to prevent any leakages.
Why I Liked It: With Pongamia oil, it has antifungal properties and the tea tree oil in it prevents itching. It’s extra-mild and safe, and comes with a soft fragrance. It maintains the vaginal PH between 3.5-4.5 and prevents itching and above all very reasonably priced. (100ml – INR 116/-, 200ml – INR 205/-)
Himalaya Intimate Wipes :
Himalaya Intimate Wipes are same as Himalaya Intimate Wash, but in wipe form, A better and more travel-friendly option. They are safe and gentle to our private parts.
Why I Like it: They are alcohol-free, unlike most wet wipes. Enriched with Lavender Oil and have a mild fragrance to remove odour. Pongamia Oil and Tea Tree Oil prevent itching and dryness.
I just love Himalaya products as they are amazing. Himalaya Body butters are my favorite now and intimate hygiene is always a must-have for me and now, I have switched to Himalaya for that too. Himalaya products are indeed the best out of Ayurveda’s treasure. I really recommend switching to Himalaya products for moms and for babies as well.
