The single hardest thing we have discovered when trying to go au natural in our homes (i.e. staying clear of parabans, synthetics, SLS, artificial scents (did you know they use beaver butt glands as some kinds of vanilla scent and flavor and scent?) artificial ingredients, no animal testing... ) is a finding a great bathroom product. Sure, there are soaps here and there as well as a few (very underrated) makeup brands and some personal hygiene finds but when it comes to something we love for us as well as our entire family it has been really difficult. And even more difficult is finding a product that is totally safe for us, the planet and the animals AND that works great.
Cut to 5 years ago when my last bottle of $25 dollar California Baby bath soap was empty (to be fair it was a large bottle and their products are great for kids). I began using Honest Company because I loved the smell and what they were offering as far as "Earth and Family Friendly". After reading the label I thought "Wow for a natural product there sure are a lot of unknowns in here".
So I used up that bottle and searched for yet another baby/mama/planet safe choice. After wandering the isles at Target I saw this -
It was as if the heavens opened. I smelled the body wash first and instantly wanted to pour it all over myself took a deep breath asI braced myself to read the label. To my surprise it was just this:
I quickly told Mieke about it and she had already discovered the hair line for her boys. Since then all of my shower products as well as most of my girls are Shea Moisture. The fact that Target has it is dreamy and makes it way easier to use family and planet safe (and great) products.
The Shea Moisture line of products is so extensive it's crazy and both of us have only scratched the surface! Do we switch it up and try something new or stick with our faves? Until then we will dreamily and happily use up our Peace Rose and Shea deliciousness.
As if all of that weren't enough, Shea Moisture gives back to communities around the world. Not off one of their products...but ALL of them. Here is a little snippet from their site
