When I would travel back and forth from New York to Manila, and our family was much smaller, I did everything I could to prepare so that, Gia and Miguel wouldn’t have to make too many adjustments on our extended vacations. Aside from my favorite brand of diapers and wipes that I would send in a balikbayan box, I would put things in the box like the detergent that I knew was kind to their skin and safe for babies.
When we moved here 9 years ago, that was no longer a concern for my then baby boy, Diego. I had found Cycles in one of my shopping excursions in S&R and was relieved with the fact that someone was already making a baby detergent that was safe and sweet smelling, just the way we like our lil ones to be.
After moving here, Diego became a Cycles baby! Washing his clothes with Cycles detergent made it easy for me to mind his allergies to harsher known adult detergents. And now, we know that Cycles has been making their infant detergent for ten years! That’s 10 years of safety and protection for babies all over the Philippines.
Since their first formula of baby detergent, the folks over at Cycles have been continually developing products for moms like me count on.
From Cycles detergent, to the Cradle bottle wash (that can also be used to wash your fruits and vegetables), to the baby wash, baby lotion, and now my all time favorite, the citronella patches that Gelli wears every day to school. They are safe. All natural. Easy to use. And always in our nappy bag. It’s always been a matter of safety and convenience for me in choosing products that make my life easier as a parent. With the recent dengue epidemic going on here in the south (I have heard of so many cases already.) it’s imperative to make sure I arm my children with everything I can to keep them safe and mosquito bite free.

So…even if my babies are all big, and their skin doesn’t require the gentle assurance of the utmost love and care that Cycles is known for, I can still enjoy the brand through the other products that they have come out with like the baby wash and lotion for Gellibean, AND the mosquito repellant patches that are all natural and safe to use on my kiddos of any age.
Cycles and Cradle products are available at Baby Company, SM stores, Rustan’s, Shopwise, Mothercare, S&R, and The Landmark.
