As you may know, I have 4 boys. And if you don’t have any boys, let me tell you that boys tend to get very dirty! Because of this, I am always on the lookout for natural soaps and shampoos to clean my dirty boys.
Another reason that I like to buy natural soap products is because a couple of my kiddos (as well as myself) have sensitive skin. It’s always a delicate balance between keeping our family clean without having our skin dry out or break out.
Imagine my delight when Earth Mama Angel Baby agreed to send me a bundle of Calming Lavender Shampoo and Body Wash to review. But not only did they send me a bundle, but I also asked for a bundle to give away to my lovely readers (that’s you) and they said yes!
So, keep reading to get my thoughts and opinion on this natural soap brand and don’t forget to enter to win some for yourself.
You can read the review I did of Earth Mama’s Third Trimester Tea in July of 2012 here.
My Experience With Earth Mama’s Calming Lavender Shampoo & Body Wash
The first thing I did when I got my bundle of suds was read the label. I wanted to know exactly what was in this shampoo and body wash. I know from experience that Earth Mama’s products are all natural, but I had to double check.
Earth Mama’s Calming Lavender Shampoo and Body Wash contains none of the nasty chemicals that consumers are used to seeing in their bath and body products.
Here’s the ingredient list:
Contains Organic Potassium cocoate, contains Organic Potassium olivate, Aloe barbadensis (organic aloe) leaf juice, Kosher Vegetable glycerin (palm sourced), Butyrospermun parkii (organic shea) butter, Vanilla planifolia (organic vanilla) fruit extract, Lavandula angustifolia (organic lavender) flower oil, Calendula officinalis (organic calendula) flower extract
Not only are all of the ingredients natural, but they are all organic.
One concern of mine was that it contains castile soap. Plain castile soap tends to be so good at cleaning that it dries out the skin. Not only was I pleasantly surprised that this soap did not dry out our skin, but I found that it even added some moisture and shine.
Normally when I use soap I have to immediately follow up with some type of moisturizer. Not so with this soap. The shea, aloe, and calendula leave your skin feeling soft and smooth, not dried out.
I love soaps and shampoos that have a nice scent. However, I have had many products (even natural ones) that have an overpowering or not-so-natural scent to them. Not so with this Calming Lavender. Not only does it have a pleasant lavender scent, but there is a vanilla scent to it as well, neither of which are overpowering.
If you are looking for something non-scented, Earth Mama also sells a Natural No-Scents Bundle that is perfect for really young babies and those sensitive to scents and smells.
Not only can this soap be used on your body, but it also makes a good all-purpose cleaner for the whole house. A recipe for household cleaner is included on the bottle, or you can get the recipe here. This soap can also be used to make homemade baby wipes.
Here are some ideas for use:
- All-purpose soft scrub cleanser
- Make your own diaper wipe solution (instructions here)
- Antibacterial soap
- Make homemade laundry detergent
- Kill ants!
Simply put, my family loves this shampoo and body wash. We’ve used it for a couple of weeks consistently at the boys’ bath time.
I decided to try this wash for myself on my hair and my skin. I now rotate this soap into my hair care routine every couple of days because this Calming Lavender Shampoo and Body Wash keeps my scalp from drying out.
I also now use this soap as my main body wash and use it to wash my face in the morning and at night as part of my regular skin care routine.
Like I said, we love this stuff!
