Babo Botanicals Review and Giveaway

Let this quote sink in for a second - "Polluting your body with toxins as you 'clean' your body...Does it make any sense to you?" I just read that the other day and thought that was such a good way of describing what many of us are doing when we apply regular shampoo, conditioner, soap, body wash, lotions, makeup, etc. to our skin every day!! We have to provide our largest organ with proper non-toxic care! This especially applies to our little babies, whose small bodies cannot get rid of toxins as well as adult bodies.


One company that I have found that has this same philosophy is Babo Botanicals. The founder of Babo Botanicals, Kate, says, "What goes on children's bodies should be as natural as what goes into their mouths. My mission is to provide the highest quality, purest hair, scalp and skincare products for babies and kids."


I think there is one thing in particular that really sets them apart from other natural and organic children's personal care products, and that is their Certified Organic Nutri-Soothe Blend. It combines chamomile, calendula, kudzu and watercress, rich in vitamin A, C and D to deliver maximum nutrients, protection and moisturization. David Woodward, a respected botanist and nature-based formula developer for over 25 years, says, "This certified organic blend of rich and powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients, vitamins and anti-oxidants was exclusively designed for a baby or child’s delicate skin to achieve optimal protection.”


One thing I have learned since being a mother is that children's skin is so delicate and sensitive, and the single last thing we need to do is put harmful substances on their skin which may irritate it more!


I tried out Babo Botanical's Oatmeal Calendula Newborn Giftset. I absolutely love it!! From the organic washcloth to the moisturizing baby lotion, shampoo and wash, and extra sensitive fragrance free baby body bar, this is one perfectly thought out gift set. You can also buy the products separately.


These products were made on an organic farm in upstate New York. Both the Oatmeal Calendula Baby Lotion and Baby Shampoo and Wash smell fabulous, are made with pure flower and plant extracts, have no synthetic fragrances or colors, are paraben and phthalate free, and have no icky chemicals in them! Love, Love, Love That!! To find out what else is NOT in Babo Botanicals and what to avoid to make bathtime worry free, check out this list of ten ingredients to avoid.


Another thing I love about the Oatmeal Calendula Newborn Giftset is that for every Newborn giftset purchased, a percent of proceeds will go towards educating children about urban gardening and making their school rooftops greener.


I plan to use these products with my little newborn daughter, but right now, my son has been using them and loves them! He calls them his "bunny soap and lotion". With drier weather coming to our area, I noticed his cheeks getting a little dry, so I have been using the moisturing lotion on them. First of all, he smells like he just came from a lovely spa, which I love! If I can't go to the spa, at least now I can smell those lovely botanicals on my son! Second, this lotion has really helped his little dry cheeks and keep them soft and smooth. I have nothing but love for this company, their products, and their acts of social responsibility.


I have great news for you today, because one of you, my lovely readers, is going to win an Oatmeal Calendula Newborn Giftset!! How great is that? I can't wait for you to enjoy these products as much as I have!
