Cuddlers® – Growing South Africa’s smiles, one change at a time!

Nobody understands the changing needs of South African mums, dads and babies like Cuddlers® does. For almost 40 years, we’ve been the companion to a generation of parents and their babies. We’ve been there for the smiles, gurgles, giggles, laughs, and every moment in between with our trusted range of nappies, pants and wipes. But, as the ONLY South African nappy brand available in all major retailers, we believe we have an even more important role to play in the lives of parents and babies in our communities.

Bringing premium features to your budget

It’s only natural, every mother wants the best for her precious little one. But, we know that can be hard when you’re juggling money to make ends meet. Cuddlers® takes our status as a super-value brand seriously and constantly explores innovative ways to incorporate premium features like stretch sides and reusable tabs into an affordable product range designed to suit any budget. Most recently, we have added an elasticated waist band to improve FIT and COMFORT for baby. Look out for our new DUAL-STRETCH nappy in store.

Novalac Junior

At the age of three children are still developing bones, teeth, muscles and, of course, their brains – that’s why milk remains an important dietary source for children, helping to ensure their optimal growth. 

Novalac Junior is a delicious flavoured drink for growing children aged 3 to 5 years. Because it contains significantly more iron than normal cow’s milk, it it contributes to brain development and help your child avoid mineral deficiencies. Novalac Junior also contains zinc to help with a healthy immune system, and calcium and vitamin D to aid in the normal growth and development of healthy bones.

Novalac Junior contains real fruit puree (banana and apple), which means that there are no artificial flavours used in the product – plus no added sugars or colourants! It also contributes to the drinks delicious real fruity taste. The unique banana and apple fruit flavour will help diversify your child’s tastebuds and help foster good eating habits. Your kids will love it!

Burt’s Bees

Eco warriors and lovers of natural skincare products have long been fans of the impressive range of skincare products from Burt’s Bees, and for good reason. The company are pioneering a new way forward in sustainable business practices; their ingredients are all natural, sustainably sourced from nature, and come in recyclable packaging. In fact, the company have stated that they’ve even kept their operational waste out of landfill since 2010. Where does it go instead? Into compost bins, to recycling centres and waste-to-energy facilities. Now, that’s a business philosophy we can get behind!

Although they’re a relatively new find to the team here at BYY HQ, Burt’s Bees was actually started in 1980s. But it’s no longer just the nature-loving set that make up their biggest supporters, regular beauty junkies are really sitting up and taking notice – the range is extensive and each product we tried was better than the last. There’s lip balm (tinted or untinted), lip shimmer, cuticle cream, hand cream, body lotion, foot cream, facial wipes and much more so you really are spoilt for choice.

It’s difficult to pick a favourite but if we absolutely had to, it would be this: the Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer – just R99 from Dischem. It offers all the nourishing properties of a good balm thanks to its potent ingredients of sunflower oils, beeswax and Vitamin E, but with a flattering hint of colour (there are 10+ colours to choose from) – and, of course, minus the parabens, phthalates and petrolatum that are in so many beauty products these days. Perfect for busy moms on the go!

While we’re already obsessed with the range of products available locally, we have our fingers crossed that the Burt’s Bees baby range (which includes baby oil, diaper cream, shampoo & wash, wipes, healing ointment and even formula) makes its way to SA shores soon.
