Credo Beauty: Natural Skincare for You & Baby

You don't have to be a mom-to-be to be interested in using gentle, natural beauty and skincare products, but more and more pregnant women are. And most parents would probably agree that newborn skin should be treated with TLC. San Francisco shop Credo Beauty is all about natural, safe and sustainably-sourced products, and the brand recently opened its first NYC store downtown. In addition to scores of cleansers, cosmetics and scents to keep expecting moms looking and feeling good, the store also stocks just-for-babes hair and body wash and face and body cream from popular UK brand Pai skincare.  The "Petit Pai," cleanser is sodium lauryl sulfate-, paraben- and fragrance-free, and the cream is made with calming botanicals to help soothe delicate skin.
