Kitty-were you talking about the liquid, not the bar, correct?
I have used the Burts Bees liquid baby body wash/shampoo (clear yellow color) for several years and have always loved it. Then when I became aware of EWG (environmental working group -google and youtube this) I found this website by them:http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/
Slowly but surely I checked out all of the products I was using on myself and the kids, and I have to say some of them were banished from our home (yep, they were labeled "natural,organic" whatever
). Of course the Burts Bees body wash was one of the first things I checked since our whole family used it (ugh and I used the lotion on myself). I was not too happy with the ratings. In my search for more natural options I turned to Earth Mama Angel Baby, read reviews on it and checked EWG's site. I found a site with FANTASTIC prices on it and ordered quite a few things. I tried some of the stuff on my DDs and myself and love it. The only thing about the body wash is this-its a liquid that turns into a foam as you pump it out-super convenient actually, I can see how this will be so easy to use one handed with a squirmy baby. However-liquid that turns into foam upon dispensing goes really
fast. Ever had one of those hand soaps that foam up like that-they run out immediately. So after bathing both of my DDs with the EMAB body wash/shampoo I can say that I absolutely love it yet it will take me a bottle every two weeks to be able to continue to use it on them. I used it to wash them and to shampoo them. Shampooing hair any other than a baby's with this stuff just does not work in my opinion-both DDs have thick hair and I needed a lot of product. It also does not lather up enough to cleanse thick hair. (as is the case with many truly natural products imo)
However I am giving the Earth Mama Angel Baby
and it will be absolute perfection for using on a small baby. It is truly very very natural, there is nothing bad in it at all. I love the very faint scent and the easy pump. Cannot wait to use it on baby!
I posted in the pregnant forum before about the website I found it on that has the amazing deals/free shipping and a code to boot, here is the link:http://www.mothering.com/discussions...thernature+com
Now, reg. Burt's Bees. They recently made a FRAGRANCE FREE version of the good old Baby Bee wash. It is the creamy opaque color. Surely this is not the one you were referring to? I was beyond excited to find it, because I really needed something I can use on myself and DDs, body and hair and all. So I bought it and have already used twice and we love it! It has a great rating on the EWG's site and it WORKS! Its this one, but they also have a smaller bottle:http://www.diapers.com/product/produ...roductid=26997
