When it comes to kids’ beauty products, I’ll admit I usually just buy what’s sold at my local stores. I haven’t ever considered that there may be things in those products that may not be good for my children. But with the recent news about a possible cancer causing chemical in a well known baby shampoo (which we’ve used and were even given at the hospital when our baby was born), I’ve been thinking more about my choices, trying to be a bit more conscientious.
Original Sprout makes beauty products that are free of many of the harmful chemicals found in other products. Original Sprout products are Biodegradable, 100% Vegetarian (Vegan), Free of PhytoEstrogens, Soy, Parabens, Gluten, Dixoanes from Sulfates, Phthalates & Formaldehyde and free of many other natural and synthetic ingredients linked with estrogen & hormone disruption, cancer & autism.
We were sent the Hair & Body Babywash, the Miracle Detangler, and the Face & Body Sunscreen to review. I have to say I am so impressed with all 3 of these products.
First we tried the Hair & Body Babywash. I love it! It lathers well, rinses easy, is gentle on baby’s eyes and leaves hair and skin clean and soft. It has special ingredients that help wash away itchy eczema, cradle cap and dryness. I absolutely love how yummy it smells! The scent lasts even after Connor’s hair has dried, making it smell fresh and clean.
Next we tried the Miracle Detangler. Brooke really wants her hair to be long, but like all kids, she plays hard and her hair is constantly tangled. We’ve tried other detanglers before, but I didn’t find that they really worked all that well. A few times I’ve cut her hair because it was just too hard to keep tangle free, but I’m trying to let it grow, per her wishes. Now I can with no worries. This detangler works wonders! It is creamy (unlike most others we’ve tried) and has the same fabulous smell as the Babywash. I can put it in Brooke’s hair wet or dry and know I won’t have to worry about her whining and crying when the comb goes through her hair. The comb glides through her hair effortlessly, and now she will not let me comb her hair after she washes it without spraying it with this detangler first! It leaves her hair soft and tangle free, and even helps tame any frizzies she may have. We’ve been using this daily for a few weeks now, and the bottle is still almost totally full!
Finally we used the Sunscreen. Living in Arizona where it’s sunny 360 days of the year, we use sunscreen a lot. I’ll be honest, I am better about applying it on the kids than I am myself. I hate the greasy feeling I get when applying sunscreen. I worry about it causing acne on my face as well. This sunscreen says it’s non-greasy- And it’s true! I was so thrilled when I applied it, waiting for that greasy feeling that even “non-greasy” sunscreens leave, and it never appeared!
What’s even better, this sunscreen naturally clears acne. Yes, I said clears!
Our award winning broad spectrum protection (UVA & UVB) SPF 24+ is free of skin penetrating nanoparticles and titanium dioxide. It’s non-greasy and free of parfum, petroleum, DEA, colors & dyes. Our extra soothing, non-stinging formula contains 100% zinc oxide & calming organic extracts to clear acne, eczema & dryness. Skin is left ultra soft, supple, nurtured and firm. Restores moisture without a waxy or greasy residue. For all skin types including Sensitive Sprouts. Excellent for daily use & under make-up.
I love it! It has a great, subtle smell that I love also. This is one sunscreen I don’t worry about applying, and am thrilled to have found one that I love even for myself!
