Clean Beauty: Baby Edition

Since my daughter was born almost 2 years ago, I've been on a clean beauty journey. I call it a journey because I'm still learning, swapping products, understanding cosmetic chemistry, and trying to find some balance in it all. I've found myself frustrated, and out money because I was "green-washed" into buying products that had misleading marketing, or because I didn't read a label close enough. I also found myself frustrated because it shouldn't be as difficult as it is to "sift" through all the conflicting information. You shouldn't need a PhD in Chemistry to make an informative decision on which bath wash to buy for you baby.


That's why I'm sharing what I've found. My list is not perfect, it's ever changing, but it's a step in the right direction. I hope by creating this list, you will have one less thing to worry about and a little more piece of mind.


I'm always looking for "something better", if you have a clean beauty product you love, please share it with me!

*As far as "clean" goes, I compromise on these. I prefer the ingredient deck of Water Wipes, but they just aren't thick enough for me. Homemade wipes would be the perfect scenario, but I just haven't reached that level of tree-hugger yet.


INGREDIENTS:

Water, cocamidopropyl pg-dimonium chloride phosphate (plant-based cleaning agent), citric acid (plant-derived pH adjuster), quillaja saponaria wood extract (plant-derived cleaning agent), aloe barbadensis leaf extract (plant-derived skin conditioner), tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E) (synthetic skin softener), sodium benzoate (synthetic preservative). Soft wipe material: Wood pulp, polyethylene, polypropylene


All of the products listed above can be found on my website, in my salon, or on Amazon. We tend to get left behind in the rural midwest, so my hope is to make clean beauty accessible and affordable. I will be posting my personal clean beauty routine next, so stay tuned to that. If you're not already, be sure to subsribe to my email list for new blog post announcements, promotions, events and more.
