Baby Bump's Luxury line of Pregnancy Skin Care Products among the Best of 2009

Baby Bump Inc. is excited to announce that it has been awarded the influential Parent Tested-Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval for excellence in parenting products.

Being honoured with the influential Seal of Approval from PTPA Media Inc. is a huge achievement for a product geared to families, children and parents. "We're thrilled!" says President and Founder Kate Mistol. "We always felt like we were on the right track in creating natural, safe & effective skin care products for women in Canada. Now we know for sure thanks to Moms across the country!"

Baby Bump was among thousands of entries competing to win the PTPA Media Seal of Approval for the Summer 2009 campaign. PTPA Media's mission is to discover and appraise products designed for families. Companies throughout North America submitted their products for review and they were matched with PTPA Media's large database of parent testers. The products were tested by savvy parenting reviewers, and professionals and the results were compiled for PTPA Media Inc.'s review committee for the final decision. The winners of the prestigious Seal of Approval from PTPA Media are selected based on value, functionality, quality and appeal of the product.

Baby Bump is a line of NATURAL, LUXURIOUS pre and post natal skin care products. Baby Bump founder and creator is Kate Mistol - Emmy award winning television journalist, businesswoman, member of Calgary's Top 40 under 40, first runner up in Calgary's Mompreneur of the Year award … and Mom to Jake & Kali!

Kate never dreamed itchy, problem skin during her two pregnancies would inspire her to launch a line of pregnancy skin care products. It all began more than 3 years ago in the basement of her Calgary home. Kate's own battles with skin care became acute during pregnancy. When she couldn't find safe and effective creams on the market, she set about creating her own!

Launched on The Shopping Channel in Canada just 4 months ago, business has ballooned - much like the bellies Baby Bump protects! Baby Bump is now available in 3 countries: Canada, USA and Mexico. Interest world wide has been overwhelming with distribution offers around the globe.

"It has been crazy in the best possible way!" Says Kate. "Our children face many obstacles in life - unnecessary exposure to chemicals shouldn't be one of them. I'm so proud that something I've created is actually making Moms feel good, without putting the babies they carry at risk."

Baby Bump products are free of harmful preservatives, petroleum by-products, synthetic color & fragrance, bisphenol-A, phthalates and all the other things you should avoid during pregnancy. The line focuses on total body care, with carefully selected natural ingredients.
