It's hard to know what things babies and young children really need, and that is why it is great to get some inspiration from celebrities. We caught up with Casyo 'Krept' Johnson and Sasha Ellese Gilbert, the founders of baby skincare brand, Nala's Baby, to see what they can't live without. Together they co-parent their 3-year-old daughter, Nala, who inspired their skincare brand which started when they tried to find a solution to treat her newborn eczema and developed into a mission to create everyday baby cosmetics free from potentially harmful ingredients.

With Nala's Baby going from strength to strength and expanding into retailers including Tesco, Ocado, Morrisons, Amazon and into additional Boots stores, they know just what little ones need when it comes to skincare. But what other items are they fans of?

A mini-version of the real deal, this sleek ride-on is something your child will adore. Perfect for getting them out the house and exploring. Krept says: "It stops any tantrums or arguments. It excites her, Nala loves driving."

These unscented baby wipes gently clean and help protect baby’s delicate skin with just 2 ingredients: 99.9% purified water and a drop of fruit extract. Sasha says: "They will always be an absolute staple. Nala went through a stage when she would take them all out of the packet, so it isn't always water wipes, but any baby wipes, even own brands."

Lock in moisture with Nala’s baby® 99% natural nighttime body oil. Formulated with apricot oil and blended with vitamins E and C, castor oil and lavender oil with its antibacterial properties, plus a lovely warm allergen-free vanilla scent, it'll leave your little cub smelling like a sweet treat. Krept says: "I use the oil and mix it with other products, like the body butter."

We love that Sasha isn't afraid to say an iPad is one of her must-have items. Because, let's face it, we all think so too. Of course we have to manage screen time, but realistically little ones will be exposed to screens and they are useful for entertainment and education and when you just need to get something done. Sasha says: "The iPad has helped in so many ways. I'm constantly driving, long journey after long journey, and having that there to entertain Nala is great. There are so many different things you can put on there. It has been a saviour."

Nala's baby® Body Butter is an award-winning deep moisturiser. Packed with skin-caring natural ingredients that give your little one's skin some TLC. With our calming blend of shea butter, cocoa butter and camomile, it will leave your little cub feeling moisturised and nourished from head to toe. Sasha says it is her favourite product but also Nala's too: "She likes the smell and it is easier to put her hand in it rather than squeeze it out of a bottle."

Where can I buy Nala's baby products?

Nala's Baby is stocked in over 1500 Boots stores nationwide, as well as recently launching in Tesco, Ocado, Morrisons and Amazon. It can also be purchased online at The brand has expanded and has launched a new product, Nala's Baby Vanilla Cloud Body Butter, exclusive to Tesco.
