Dry. Itchy. Scratchy. Skin. We’ve all been there. Heck, there’s even a whole day dedicated to it (apparently).
In honor of National Winter Skin Relief Day on January 8th, we sat down with Stephanie Pascarella, founder behind Wash with Water. Stephanie is a trailblazer in the all-natural skincare space. She gave us tips on how to care for baby’s skin and how her plant-based products can transform skin of any age. Dry, bye!

As a child in Vermont, endless fields of wildflowers were my playground. And when I became a mother, this untouched landscape became my inspiration and capturing the beauty in nature is how Wash with Water was born.

How can parents sooth baby's skin from the elements?
Winter can certainly wreck havoc on skin. All of our products are developed with the most delicate skin of newborns in mind combined with botanical-rich antioxidants to maintain mama’s healthy glow.
