Today is a good day, friends! My dear friend Elle Hanna is on deck with super helpful mom-friendly review of Beautycounter’s Kidscounter line. Her darling boy, Tenney, shouldn’t be the only babe to benefit from Elle’s savvy. Put a few of these products in a gift basket the next time you shower a mama-to-be. OK, let’s hear from Elle:
Summer is (finally) just around the corner and that means longer days of building sand castles, and dirt-filled play sessions (as it should be)! Like most mom’s I worry that my little guy is playing with toys that are safe and non-toxic. I try to buy healthy organic foods to provide him with the fuel he needs to keep moving and exploring his world. I thought I was doing all I could to make the best choices for my family, and my budget. It never occurred to me that the soap I was using to wash the dirt away was potentially harmful. That’s when I came across Beautycounter’s Kidscounter line – Squeak Y Clean Body Wash, Nice Do Shampoo and Not A Knot Conditioner.
Beautycounter’s mission is to get safe products into the hands of everyone, and that includes kids. You won’t find any surfactants or artificial fragrances in their products. In fact Beautycounter has banned more than 1,500 ingredients opting instead to use antioxidant-rich ones like broccoli seed oil, carrot root and cranberry fruit extracts, and safflower oil for safe and effective cleaning power. These natural ingredients also make them very gentle on the eyes, which is good since my son rarely sits still, even in a bathtub. Also, the kid’s line is nut-free, gluten-free and vegan.
Finally, they make their safe products affordable enough to use on kids; in fact they are actually more affordable per bath than many other naturally-based brands.
We have so many choices to make as parents. For me, making sure the products I put on my son’s skin are as safe as the food he eats and the toys he plays with is simple. Want to learn more about BeautyCounter’s products? Read more here.
