Small Business Sunday Feature: Carre Jaune. Little Wonders Great Care!

Being an Esthetician and being a product junkie, researching skincare is one of my favourite things to do.  And when I come across a fabulous line I get rather excited and have to tell everyone about it.

About Carré Jaune:
 Carré Jaune(in English it means yellow box. Something Sylvie’s daughter loved to point out when learning shapes)
Carré Jaune was created by a mom of two is 100% natural, uses dried fruit extracts such as apricot and banana instead of essential oils.

What Everything Mom and Baby love:
Carré Jaune is an organic line from Quebec, Canada using intriguing, healing and delightful nutritious oils and butters like Capuaçu butter, Sea Buckthorn, Tamanu and Apricot oils.
All are highly nourishing for you and your little one’s skin.

All Carré Jaune formula contains the following NO’s :

  • NO Phthalates
  • NO Petrochemicals
  • NO Parabens
  • NO Synthetic or chemical ingredients
  • NO Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
  • NO BPA


I received travel sizes of the line and I am savouring every last drop.  My son’s skin truly has never been so soft.  I can say I am 100% pleased with the whole line.
First of the Apricot Bath Powder is made from dried fruits such as Apricot and Banana.  It also contains Oats and Tapioca!  This is so gentle and lovely.
The Natural Foam Wash is something I even use to wash my face but it is oh so gentle for your baby.  Carrot extract, Neroli(one of my favorite essential oils) and Witch Hazel makes this safe for all skin types.  I love it’s creamy texture even though it’s a foam.
 Apricot Cream.  Oh, Carré Jaune’s Apricot Cream.  I could not stop smelling my arm as I did a test rub.  It smells so pure and like delicious ripe Apricots.   
The Apricot Cream also has some of my favorite oils and plants in it such as Sea Buckthorn and Calendula.   It is a healing and protective cream.  A must have to moisturize your child’s skin.


Apricot Massage Oil…if you know how much I love the Apricot Cream you’ll know I feel the same way about the massage oil.
You can smell a hint of the highly sought after and making a breakthrough in skincare Tamanu Oil. Tamanu is high in fatty acids, anti-inflammatory, healing and overall a remarkable oil.  You will also note that Carrot, Rice Bran Oil also make this oil complete.  I love massaging my son with this oil.


Cupuaçu Pommade is your answer to diaper rash.  Carré Jaune uses Sea Buckthorn hand-picked from Quebec as well as Rice Bran and Cupuaçu butter.  The Cupuaçu butter gives this pommade its smoothness that I’ve never felt before in a diaper cream. 
This is cloth diaper safe too!  Anywhere where the redness is or in the creases of baby’s neck and thighs you can use this.  I use it for my skin irritations as well.  I love the cupuaçu butter in this!


Cupuaçu Balm is a handy balm that you can toss in your bag.  It calms and treats sunburned skin, treats wind burn cheeks and heals cuts and scratches.  Made with Cupuaçu butter(of course!) and Carrot, Sea Buckthorn and Tamanu.  Talk about nourishing! A must have.

This line is a high quality, affordable organic skin care and definitely a favorite of mine so naturally, I give it my:

  13. Angela M | 26th Jul 12

    I like that they have an extensive list of things that are NOT in the products. So many times a brand will advertise “no parabens” etc. but then have a bunch of other nasty stuff in the products. I’d like to try the cupuaçu pommade.

  14. Anonymous | 27th Jul 12

    I love that this line is created by a Mom! And I love even more that it has none of the junky stuff!

  15. Tara F | 30th Jul 12

    I like the list of “contains NO” things. It’s sad that we’ve come to this, but it’s really scarey the ingredients that are used in most products. I would really like to try the foam wash.

  16. lisa bolduc | 30th Jul 12

    I like that these products are all safe, made with natural ingredients, and they smell great too. I’d be happy to try any of the products, but could use a great lotion, bath powder, or massage oil for baby.

    Like most parents, her children are my inspiration and her strength so she decided to bring some changes by creating a natural and non-toxic skincare line with no surprises.
