All natural goodness!


If your anything like me you are always worried about the chemicals going into your child's body and finding new organic products to make your life a little more chemical free is always fun.

I'm in love with lavender bath products for Connor and myself. I've used lavender products so often with him that when he is having a super cranky night all I have to do is spray some lavender room spray in his room and it usually settles him down. I've even reverted to wearing a lavender based perfume as I know it calms my own nerves as well and with my current schedule at school I'm always keyed up. I honestly think I get as much pleasure giving him a bath in lavender baby wash as he does as its just sort of become our routine.

With that said its just sometimes hard to find a good organic lavender body wash that's great smelling and affordable for everyday use. Sum-bo-shine offers a lavender and aloe baby wash and lotion that smells amazing, is great on Connor's eczema and at about $11-12 a bottle its very affordable in the organic market. All of Sum-Bo-Shine's products are 100% organic, natural, nothing artificial, and completely vegan other than the diaper rash cream which has beeswax.

Speaking of the Diaper Rash Cream I'm in love with that cream for daily use. Connor is a rash magnet and I put cream on him regardless of if he has a rash or not as the moment I let it go he ends up with a horrible rash. The Sum-bo-shine Diaper Rash cream is unlike any other cream we have used, its actually very thin and not pasty at all, and it has just a tiny bit of tea tree oil which gives it a great almost cooling affect (not to mention that tea tree oil is fabulous for dealing with itchy skin). Though Its a bit too runny for me to consider it a great overnight cream its wonderful as a preventative cream and works great as a daily cream. It does not include any zinc oxide which I love in a daily cream but I'd be the first to admit we still use a zinc oxide cream when Connor's rashes get bad enough, as much as I'd love to avoid doing so its a fact of life for us.

If your a a baby oil fan, you will love Sum-bo-shine's baby oil. Mixed with a bit of chamomile and rosemary it smells amazing. I was half tempted to rub it all over my own body! heh. Baby oil is a great moisturizer and we used alot of it when Connor was younger as a cradle cap preventive. I can happily say we made it totally through the infant stage with no cradle cap thanks to just a little bit of baby oil every day.

Sum-bo-shine
's products are available directly from their website. I highly recommend the baby wash and diaper rash cream but all of them are equally awesome!

semtaylor said...

I like the fact that everything is so pure and made with "simple natural ingredients". I like the looks of Sum-Bo-Shine Aloe & Lavender Shampoo and Body Wash. The reason is the smell and that I do not have to have 2 products for body wash and shampoo.

Katharos said...

Wow, the bath salts sound amazing. I could use a good soak! I love that they are basic, not gimmicky.

I want to try the Sum-Bo-Shine Aloe and Lavender Natural Baby Shampoo and Body Wash. I love that everything is all natural and you can figure out what is in the product by the ingredients, not like weird super long chemical words that no one knows that are in many other bath and body products. Thanks for the chance to win!

The feature I find most appealing is Truth in Labeling. We as consumers deserve that. Cruelty Free is a must. Sounds like Sum-Bo Shine makes no comprimises...You go Sum-Bo!

Of course, what appeals to me most is the organic, natural list of ingredients. It's one of those things I only paid half-attention to before kids, but now I worry about what goes into and onto all of us so much more.

What appeals to me most about the Sum-bo-shine's products is that they are chemical free and safe for my family to use. I have a 4 month old daughter and I want to keep her safe, healthy and at the same time keep her skin smooth and soft and free of any skin irritations. It is also important to me that the products I purchase for my family are cruelty free and vegan. These product cover all of my concerns. The products that I would like to try the most are the Naturally Pure Diaper Ointment for my baby daughter, the Sum-Bo-Shine Aloe and Lavender Therapeutic Bath Powder, and for me the Milk & Honey Body Lotion.
