up until a few months ago, i’ve always used johnson’s shampoo. i never really did my homework when it came to shampoo and since johnson’s has always been such a big name in products for babies, i just assumed it was a good one. i was talking with a hairdresser a few months back and we were discussing going more natural with things we use in our everyday. i’m slowly converting everything we have to all natural and safer products so i’m constantly getting into these conversations. we talked about everything to from the products we clean with to the foods we eat to, you guessed it, shampoos and body washes. she told me all about not only johnson’s brand but so many other brands that use toxins and chemicals in their products and how they’re the worst to use.
i started doing my homework on this and found that there are so many toxins and chemicals used in certain shampoos and body washes that we use on our babies. i try not to use shampoos or washes that have chemicals for myself so i certainly don’t want to put toxins or chemicals on my children. i started testing out a bunch of different washes that were organic and best in the industry and i decided to share six of my favorites with you in case you’re looking to make the switch too. all of these shampoos double as body wash so it’s more for your money!
babo botanicals: all their products are produced on an organic farm in upstate new york and use 100% natural fragrances.
cetaphil baby: i’ve used their face wash for years now and love it. all of their products are organic and the baby products contain a secret ingredient of organic extracts from a marigold flower.
honest shampoo and body wash: though their line doesn’t contain 100% all natural ingredients, it’s safe to say their baby washes do so i definitely feel comfortable using the honest baby wash on my kids.
shea moisture head-to-toe wash & shampoo: the shea line contains safe surfactants and are scented only with essential oils.
skinfix: it’s all botanical based ingredients are fragrance-free, sulfate-free, and tear-free. it’s one of the best washes (in my opinion) for babies who deal with eczema flare-ups.
aden & anais: this wash helps with delicate skin and is phthalate-free, paraben-free, and gluten and soy free. plus it makes the girls skin feel so so soft afterwards.
