Flexibath’s PVC-Free, Phthalate-Free and BPA-Free Folding Bathtub for Babies and Toddlers

By |May 11, 2010 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, Bath & Body Care, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews, Videos|

Looking for a cool, safe, BPA-free and PVC-free bath tub for babies and small children that you can fold flat to store away? Once baby has outgrown this tub, use it as a storage or recycle bin, just perfect for that too!  We are blown away with how cool this water saving bath tub for little ones is!  What a great invention Flexibath. The creator if this cool tub is from Denmark and Flexibath is already a bestseller in Europe.  It is a huge hit in our home right now too, because I enjoy giving my little boy baths in the innovative Flexibath. I find quite challenging to bathe him otherwise.  Also, we don’t have a lot of storage space, so this bathtub is what we needed.   So if you are into space saving, voila!  Flexibath can be folded in a breeze and can fit just about anywhere: under the sink, bed, closet or in a corner. There are so many reasons why Safbaby awarded the Flexibath with their prestigious Excellence Award. I fell in love with it from bath #1. […]

Organic Baby Shampoo and Body Wash

By |February 23, 2010 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

Fresh Organics pulls through again, with flying colors, with their organic Conditioning Shampoo and Body Wash for baby, child (and adults even love it too)!  Fresh Organic’s organic bubble bath was just recently awarded our Green Award, and this shampoo/body wash has been awarded our Green Award too! One of our readers commented on that bubble bath post that she learned some good info on how to keep her child’s sensitive skin protected.  This post will elaborate on that a bit more. All baby and children have sensitive skin.  Their skin is so new and delicate.  What we put on their skin is just as important as what we put into their bodies we believe.  I also have to mention that a baby’s delicate skin is even MORE ABSORBENT to dangerous toxins than us adults. They are just so vulnerable to all of the harmful ingredients that are hiding in many of the skin care products we believe to be safe to use everyday on our children. […]

A Rich Organic Baby Lotion That The Average Income Can Afford!

By |December 29, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

It is insanely mind boggling how many dangerous toxins readily make up many of the mainstream skin care products targeted for our children.  Seriously, if the mass public knew the dangers of rubbing these neuro-toxins and hormone disruptors into the bodies of those we love and cherish the most, major companies would be going out of business fast.  Using a non-toxic moisturizer on our children is incredibly important.  Unfortunately not always affordable.  Not anymore! Many children these days also suffer from serious skin conditions such as eczema.  So it is so wonderful to find skin care that is safe for the whole family, organic, hydrating, and INCREDIBLY AFFORDABLE! Not only that, but Fresh Organics uses such amazing green practices in their manufacturing process that we are truly blown away!  We love this product, their Velvety Soft Babee Lotion! When our skin feels healthy, we feel healthy!  Dry winter air can cause the moisture in the top layer of your skin to evaporate quickly.  Hence, this may be a time you are beginning to look for a rich, organic lotion for you AND your baby.

Natural Skin Care For Kids With Eczema Or Other Skin Sensitivities

By |August 13, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, Product Reviews|

This new line of skin care from Skin Free® is fabulous!  As soon as I put it on my skin I loved it.  Nothing fancy, no long list of ingredients (just a handful on really natural ingredients at most), and zero fragrance.  This combo helps to make this a perfect line of skin care for babies, children, pregnant mamas, or anyone with sensitive skin or skin irritations. Scoring a ZERO on Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep site is tested information stating that a skin care product, or in this case LINE of products, are non-toxic, chemical free, safe and natural.  Skin Free® scores a ZERO!  Completely non-toxic skin care, great for all people, even infants, with skin conditions or sensitive skin. I knew I was sold after using these products personally, my skin felt hydrated and nourished.  It felt as though my skin drank this stuff up!   But, how would it do for a family with skin conditions such as eczema?

PVC-free and BPA-free European Style Bath Tub by Spa Baby for Infants

By |May 11, 2009 |0-1 yr, Bath & Body Care, Product Reviews, Videos|

When my daughter was an infant she did not like taking baths and we always had to rush through it – it wasn’t pleasant for both of us, including my back. I also found out later, that the tub I’ve been using was made of toxic PVC, like practically all bath tubs on the market today. After talking to my family members and friends in Europe about the unpleasant bathing experience, they told me I MUST use a bath bucket, which are additionally widely recommended by Pediatricians and Midwifes over there (sadly not here in the US!). Apparently, the natural upright position and being in water up to their shoulders mimics the feeling of being in the womb which makes total sense. Even the most colicky baby stays warm, happy and relaxed, exactly what a bathing experience should be like. Another benefit is that it needs less water! […]

Hand Sanitizer that Kills 99.9% Germs Without Toxic Synthetic Chemicals

By |March 31, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, Product Reviews|

In the US, we are obsessed with germ killers more than anywhere else in the world! Anti-bacterial products are every where from shoes, tooth brushes, toys, bibs, cutting boards, shower mats, wash gels to hand sanitizers. They’re usually labeled as with words like:  antibacterial, fights germs, protection against mold, and odor-fighting. What are the concerns with most common anti-bacterial products? Well, the first big one for us here at SafBaby is that the most common ones available in our mainstream marketplace kill ALL the bacteria on our skin. Not all bacterias are bad, and we need the good stuff to stay healthy too. The overuse of anti-bacterial soaps, sprays, gels and so on has contributed to helping harmful bacteria become somewhat immune to their use. So, overuse of harsh anti-bacterial products are doing more harm then good over the long haul. A U.S. FDA advisory committee has found that household use of antibacterial products provides no benefits over plain soap and water, and the American Medical Association recommends that triclosan, an antibacterial chemical and pesticide, not be used in the home, as it may encourage bacterial resistance to antibiotics.¹ […]

Why Choose a Natural Detangler Over a Toxic One?

By |December 17, 2008 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, Product Reviews|

Made with organic and natural botanicals, this detangler/leave-in-conditioner by Noli-n-Nali™ rocks! Oh the joys of having a child that loves wearing 2 ponytails, but that doesn’t love having her hair brushed. When you have a baby or child, you know about that endless rat’s nest that seems to magically form as the hairdo on the back of their heads. That hair that goes out of control every time they get into a car seat, awaken from a sleepy-time, or just in general!   Finding a detangler seems the simple answer.  But… What is typically in leading brand’s detanglers for our babies is alarming to us!

Paraben and Sulfate-free Bubble Bath for Baby and Toddler

By |September 21, 2008 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, Product Reviews|

Although I LOVE a good bubble bath, I haven’t really enjoyed one since I became increasingly aware of what makes up the ingredients of most bubble bath products (sodium laurel sulfates, synthetic fragrances and artificial colors). Not very relaxing once you become aware that you are a steeping body in a tub full of potentially harmful chemicals. Kind of robs the moment. My baby girl had never experienced a lathery, sudsy bubble bath…….. not until we found Little Twig! And that first bubble bath with her made me smile from ear to ear. […]

Baby and Child Massage Benefit From Natural, Organic Baby Oil and Aromatherapy

By |August 9, 2008 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

Not all baby oil is safe. This is important to know, especially if you use mineral based massage oils on your precious baby or child. Using pure, natural, and organic products on my baby girl is very important to me. Knowing that what goes on her delicate skin is just as important as what goes into her body. Knowing this truth, we are delighted to share this ultra gentle baby oil that has been formulated by a passionate and ecologically conscious L.A. Aesthetician. Maki Maodus developed Mambino Organics Tippy Toes™ Ultra Gentle Baby Oil , aiming to responsibly care for the amazing gift of the human baby body. She sweetly aimed, and hit the bulls-eye with this pure and nurturing oil, and her Mommy and Baby Calming Aromatherapy Oil also. […]

Safe, Non-toxic, and Really Natural Hand Soap for Baby and Child

By |July 22, 2008 |1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Bath & Body Care, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

After our recent post on the dangers to our children due to [tag] Triclosan [/tag] in anti-bacterial soaps, we thought it would be nice to let you know about a soap we personally enjoy using to wash our toddler’s hands. This is a great, safe alternative to anti-bacterial soaps! Sandra likes this [tag] safe and non-toxic hand soap [/tag] for her child because of it’s hydrating effects on her little girl’s hands. “I love that her hands stay so soft, even though we wash them often throughout the day. Most other soaps dry out her skin if we use them that frequently.” I like this hand soap because I think it smells so nice! It has a delicious nutty smell, that is completely and truly natural. No added fragrances here. […]
