Baby care products are one of those many things it is easy to use without a second thought. We use the same products are parents are, because it becomes second nature to us. Luckily, more and more awareness is being raised to question what is in the stuff we put in our bodies, and on our bodies. Something that goes for children just as much as us. Toxic and unsafe ingredients in all kinds of baby powders, lotions, and soaps are a good reason to stick to something worry-free.
Let me introduce you to Simple Nature. Currently their line offers diaper rash cream, and two options for a body wash/shampoo for baby. You can choose between orange smoothie, or, for the most sensitive babies, fragrance-free. Their products are free of the most common allergens (soy, dairy, and gluten), are free from ingredients containing GMOs, they are dermatologist tested and approved, biodegradable, made without using animal testing, and are tear-free, too!
I received two Orange Smoothie scented products from Simple Nature for review. A bottle of the shampoo/body wash, and a bottle of their face & body lotion. It was love at first smell. No, I'm not kidding. One whiff, and I was whisked away back to happy memories of my adolescence, devouring delicious orange creamsicle bars on warm spring or summer days.
Several times in the past, I've tried out baby care products that are scented so strongly they are overwhelming. More than once I could smell the product on my baby from across the room, hours after applying it to his skin. I'm sure it's in an attempt to keep up with the heavily scented products made by competitors, in the worry that consumers may complain they can't even smell the product. But, personally I find that ridiculous. It can't be very nice for a little one to have their nose all clogged up with overdone perfume scents. This is not a problem with the products of the Simple Nature line. It is strong enough to be appreciated, but mild enough not to be overpowering.
The body wash/shampoo is very gentle. It has not once dried out Baby E's skin anywhere. A dollop is all it takes to wash his hair, and the end result is delightful. I don't notice the orange smoothie scent at all from any distance, but if I nestle my face onto his head I can smell the gentle aroma of orange. The lotion is equally amazing. Slightly more strongly scented, it is a smooth and light lotion that doesn't leave an oily layer on your skin. It absorbs fast and leaves you with the pleasant aroma of cream and oranges to enjoy for hours. Although I originally intended to use the lotion solely for Baby E... I must confess I've kind of... stolen it. His baby skin continues to be perfect, while mine gets thirsty from time to time! I'm addicted to the amazing smell. I hope to see other sweet scents from Simple Nature in the future. Perhaps a strawberry shortcake scent is in store next?
