The first product of its kind in South Africa, the Oh Lief Aqueous Cream is an aqua cream for new born babies that contains no petroleum jellies or mineral oils. Rather beeswax, natural clay, olive, sesame and coconut oil! It can be used as a wash off cream and shampoo for new born babies and, later on, as a lotion.
Oh Lief natural olive baby products are specifically developed for babies with sensitive skin. The original recipes were formulated using only natural products found in the area surrounding the small town of Riebeek West located in the countryside 2 hours outside Cape Town.
Oh Lief relies on the healing benefits of ‘nature’. Keeping it simple is the best for babies which is why ingredients are kept minimal, and each ingredient is carefully selected based on its healing properties. Production is restricted to small batches to ensure freshness and high quality standards. The small recyclable containers are sterilized before being filled and will fit perfectly into your diaper bag.
Use Oh Lief Aqueous Cream as a gentle cleansing wash and shampoo on your new baby's skin during bath-time, or as a soothing moisturizer for the whole family.

A little more about the main Ingredients..
Oh Lief products do not contain any harsh chemicals, fragrances, petroleum, parabens, artificial colours or nut oils. Only the gentlest, non-irritating and raw natural ingredients are used. Oh Lief relies on nature’s simplicity as the inspiration behind their formulations.
Natural Beeswax is a by-product which is generated by bees during the construction of their hives and has a subtle scent of honey. Beeswax is an anti-microbial and healing agent; it is also an anti-irritant and antibacterial agent. Beeswax helps to protect baby’s skin against the environment and the chemical reactions in nappies on their skin
Oh Lief believes in safe products for babies, toddlers and families. Products that are not harmful to their sensitive skin or our precious environment.
The Oh Lief Philosophy:
All formulations are consciously formulated to create a product that is ethically true to nature and as pure and gentle as baby needs. These products are not formulated to fit into the commercial standards of ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ labels that we see so often in the market place. Rather they reflect what should be used on baby and expecting mom’s skin, which should be only pure raw natural and organic ingredients.
Oh Lief products are locally made in Cape Town, keeping our carbon footprint as low as it can be. Oh Lief source all of their raw ingredients from local farmers in the Western Cape, which have a very similar ethos, therefore supporting our local community of farmers. Their products are biodegradable and not harmful to the environment.
