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

July 22, 2008 | 1 Comment

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.

Also, the liquid hand soap that conveniently pumps out without mess is the only way to go in our homes. I always have my baby girl in one arm, and am washing her hands with the other. So, this is one place that we promote ‘going to the pump regularly!

Safe Hand Soap for Baby and Child, Triclosan-Free

Dr. Bronner’s Magic Organic Fair Trade Unscented Shikakai Baby Soap is certified by the same national organic program that certifies food products. Dr. Bronner’s pump soaps are smooth and luxurious with no synthetic detergents or preservatives.

Organic shikakai comes from the seed pods of the small South Asian tree Acadia Concinna, and has been used for millennia in India as a gentle conditioning cleanser for both skin and hair. The shikakai is extracted in organic sugar and grape juice, and combined with Dr. Bronner’s unsurpassed castile soap base for rich emollient lather and moisturizing afterfeel.

Chemical Free, Non-toxic, Safe Ingredients That are Truly Natural

The ingredients are 100% chemical free, non-toxic and safe! Check this out: Organic Shikakai Extract (Organic White Grape Juice, Organic Sucrose*, Organic Shikakai Powder), Saponified Organic Coconut* and Olive* Oils, Organic Hemp Oil, Citric Acid, Vitamin E.

*Certified fair trade by IMO. Oregon Tilth Certified Organic.

Encouraging A Non-Toxic Environment For Our Children Seal of ApprovalThis safe hand soap comes in a large 12 ounce pump bottle that retails for $8.99 and is available here. A 12 oz. bottle like this will last a long time!

I actually donated a bottle to my daughter’s playful-learning-center and the owner of the preschool was delighted to make the switch from the not-so-safe option she had available.

Because of the economic value of this product in particular, SafBaby believes this to be a very wise choice for schools or other child care facilities. Encourage the consciousness!!

Please know what you are washing you little loved one’s soft skin with, and remember that it ends up down the drain and into our baby’s future water supply too. Being clean with this soap is natural and feels good too.

    I like the Dr Bronner’s soap, but for kids I love the miessence foaming hand soap even more, as it reduces waste and they love how it comes out all bubbly :-) It’s certified organic and you can buy a concentrated refill that you mix with water, which makes it extra economical and ecological! You can buy it online:

    My three year old loves washing his hands now and I don’t have to worry about him squirting soap all over the place!
