Embracing a Healthy Family: Sprout Baby Newest Eco-Friendly Products Review

Sprout Baby Newest Eco-Friendly Products Review

I was introduced to Sprout Baby's Hair Detangler and was hooked.  I tried a bottle as a review compliments of Sprout Baby and since then, I have purchased two more bottles along with shampoo.  It's the only product I'm using on my two younger girl's hair for three reasons:  1. It is organic; 2. I love the smell; and 3. It works. 

Sprout Baby offered complimentary products in exchange for my honest opinion about the following products. I truly believe in the products by Sprout Baby and I want to raise awareness to others who are looking for organic products for their children.  I also like them as they are reasonably priced and I don't mind pay a dollar or two more to ensure what I'm putting on my children is not full of harmful chemicals or additives.

Below are the products that I will be able to review and post on my experiences:

Nature Babycare – The makers of the most eco-friendly disposable diapers available in the market. Nature Babycare diapers consist of 99% compostable material, making them a great biodegradable option to traditional disposable diapers. 





The Nature Babycare diapers range in sizes from 1 (8-14 lbs) all the way to 6 (35+ lbs).  They also received the Best Disposable Diaper Silver award winner of 2006-2007, Mother & Baby Magazine (UK) recipient.

Features:
  • Chlorine-free absorbent materials do not contribute to dioxin pollution
  • 100 % natural back sheet
  • NO plastic
  • 100 % natural distribution layer
  • 100 % compostable consumer packaging
  • No latex, fragrance, or TBT (tributyl tin)
My two year old is still in diapers...yes, I admit it!  She's a holy terror and I haven't had the stamina to battler her.  She's an ultra sensitive one with severe allergy and asthma issues and breaks out frequently.  Having another choice for diapers is a welcome opportunity for me since these things are on her skin 24 hours a day.

Review:  These diapers are the best diapers I have tried to date.  I've always been a staunch Huggies supporter but these surpassed my expectations.  They have a nice woven texture, kept her dry through the night and I love the fact they are naturally made.  If children are going to have this product next to their skin 24/7, why not protect them from whatever chemicals they might be absorbing?  I wholeheartedly recommend these!




Episencial Skin Care – The first company to create an all-natural and fully sustainable skin care line for babies and families.

Episencial Better Body Butter - A soft silky hydrating lotion.

Review: This is a silky soft hydrating lotion with a subtle fragrance and is lightweight, non-greasy which I prefer. I find it annoying to have to wash your hands after applying lotion but this one is not one of those. It is made of organic lavender and geranium and is gentle on all skin types and especially sensitive skin like my two year old has. Due to her sensitivity and allergies, I have to be careful of what I apply on her delicate skin. She was definitely able to tolerate the Better Body Butter with no adverse events.  I would also recommend Episencial's Better Body Butter.

Features & Benefits from the website:
  • Organic olive oil, shea butter, and sunflower seed oil to restore natural skin lipids. Helps prevent cradle cap and scaly skin.  Both my girls still have issues with cradle cap so I'm highly anticipating this one!  Since I've been using the shampoo and detangler, it's non-existent in my six year old.
  • Organic lavender and geranium oils to sooth and calm the skin, as well as preserve product freshness.
  • Calming oat extract also boosts skin immunity.
  • Organic jojoba and avocado oils to help replenish essential fatty acid levels for proper hydration.
Episencial Nurturing Balm - Relieves and protects diaper area and sensitive places.

Features & Benefits
  • Fortified with vitamins A, D, and E to help preserve skin balance and restore skin health.
  • Tea tree extract and 20% zinc helps to prevent and treat mild to severe skin irritation or rash on any part of the body. For girls and boys.  Another benefit that I can't wait to try! 
  • Organic aloe vera and calendula extracts to minimize redness and promote healing.
  • Organic olive oil, shea butter, and grape seed oil to restore natural skin lipids and sooth itchy, irritated skin.
  • Gently seals out wetness and germs to protect the skin surface.
Episencial Protective Face Balm - Provides all-over relief for chapped skin and lips SPF 6.

Features & Benefits
  • Organic aloe vera, coco butter, and shea butter, for soothing protection from dry, chapped skin.  My six year old has a terrible time with her lips especially in the winter and going outside for recess.  I'm anxious to try this one.
  • Zinc SPF 6 for healing protection from sun, wind, and pollution.
  • Fortified with vitamins A, D, E, and C to help restore and repair skin balance and texture.
  • Packed with organic raspberry juice, cranberry extract, and grape seed to revitalize skin.
Episencial Sunny Sunscreen SPF-35 - water resistant protection for body and face.

Features & Benefits
  • Protects sensitive skin with natural minerals zinc and titanium (no nano-particles).
  • Milky texture creates a protective layer with no harsh chemicals and minimal white residue.
  • Fortified with organic green tea extract to prevent sun-damage.  They both can use this on their lily white skin.  My English mom passed on her almost see through white skin so the girls are sensitive.  This is also good as it doesn't get too cold in Georgia to allow the girls to go outside and play from time to time.
  • Organic sesame, safflower and avocado oils to moisturize and nourish the skin.
  • Beeswax and organic shea butter increase water resistance and sun protection without the use of petroleum or chemicals.
Cleanwell – The environmentally friendly company creating green sanitizers perfect for fighting those pesky germs, and keeping your family clean and healthy. 





They have a number of products and choices to purchase in this line.  I'm particularly fond of santizers given my daughter's chronic medical conditions and with the fears of the flu and H1N1, I'm always shouting out to everyone when they come home or sneeze to "SANTIZE!"  They roll their eyes at me but I want to ensure I can do what I can to protect them.

REVIEW:  I like the bottle in that it's a fliptop so a little one can't accidentally get a hold of it and spray in their eyes or mouth.  I didn't like the scent at all.  I used it a lot while I was sick and so far, no one else has caught my cold. 

Babyganics – A brand specializing in creating cleaning products that are not only baby safe, but also environmentally friendly. These products will clean your house and leave you with a clean conscience.


Kit Includes: The Grime Fighter All Purpose Cleaner (32oz), The Dish Dazzler Foaming Dish and Bottle Soap, The Germinator Foaming Hand Sanitizer On-the-Go (50ml), and The Grime Fighter All Purpose Wipes (25ct). 

The Grime Fighter hunts dirt where it lives (and where your babies live too!): high chair, changing table, crib, sealed wood floors, marble counter tops - bring it on! Tough stuff but a softie around the babies! So useful around the house you'll want to strap it to your belt.

REVIEW:  The all purpose cleaner was perfect for cleaning up those messes that come with children and husbands (smile).  What I liked most about this line of products are they made of natural ingredients so I don't have to worry about harmful ingredients.  The odor was not offensive like other household cleaners can be and it did a great job cleaning up the many messes of my two and six year olds.  I would recommend this product.

I like that the odor was not overwhelming. I have seen a lot of promotions about this line recently, but was unsure what it was all about. Thanx for sharing.
