If you checked out our article on Organic Beauty Products earlier, then you know making the switch to an organic lifestyle means more than just replacing food items. All personal care items should be swapped for their organic counterpart to keep your family free from harmful chemicals, and true to a happy, healthy, organic lifestyle. One of the biggest concerns most parents should have relates to soaps, shampoos, and other personal care items that their children will be using – especially if you have a baby around the house!
Children’s bodies are much more sensitive to chemicals and toxins than our adult bodies, and your baby is even more sensitive with their think skin and brand new bodily systems. As a parent, you should think not only about what they’re eating, but also what they are touching, wearing and breathing. Choosing organic and natural products can help bring some peace of mind to you if you are a busy parent, and it will also ensure you’re giving your kids the best start in life. Here are some tried and true favorite organic personal care products made for your growing family:
A fan favorite, Dr. Bronner’s not only focuses on creating a completely organic product, this company also places emphasis on an array of other ethical production practices such as animal and cruelty free. They believe in making products that are derived from pure, organic, fair trade ingredients and strive to uphold the integrity of the organic lifestyle. The Dr. Bronner’s product line ranges from body care to home care, making it a great one stop shop for all your organic soap needs, which can save busy parents precious time.

Green People Organic Baby and Organic Children
A brand hailing from the UK, Green People is an international favorite, and a lot of moms totally support ordering their products, which are available online. This brand started because the founder’s daughter suffered from skin sensitivity, and she was having trouble finding completely natural personal care products. Green People takes pride in their promise to never use synthetic ingredients or chemicals and never test on animals. They have two lines for youngsters, which are tailored to the needs of babies (and their nursing mothers) and children. Both lines were designed with skin sensitivity and the fact that kids love to taste everything, in mind. The products are all organic and non-toxic. Check out a few of their top products for kids:
Organic Babies Diaper Cream
Organic Babies Wash & Shampoo
Organic Babies Lotion
Organic Babies Mum & Baby Rescue Balm
Organic Children Shampoo
Organic Children Conditioner
Organic Children Aloe Vera Lotion & After Sun
This is just the tip of the iceberg of what’s available by families for families in the organic market. You would be surprised by the amount of organic personal care products that are becoming more and more available out there! Another good place to stop and check is your local farmers or flea market. One of my favorite parts of visiting the markets is stopping by the homemade soaps, candles, and other vendors. I encourage you to stop by and look at the organic options available to you at those markets. You have the added benefit of being able to talk to the seller directly and have all your questions answered about their practices and ingredient sourcing. You never know, your favorite organic items may, quite literally, be right around the corner!
