Review and Giveaway - Angel Baby Shampoo and Body Wash

From the Manufacturer:

How does someone so angelic, sweet and pure get so dirty? All the breast milk mostly going in, and then, of course, going out! And once the food experimentation and crawling starts, the battle with grime really begins.
You need a safe, effective soap that won't hurt your baby's sensitive skin.

USDA Certified Made with Organic Ingredients, Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash is a gentle, real castile soap - not a harsh detergent. With soothing organic calendula, zero toxins and no artificial fragrance, just a sweet, light natural scent from pure organic Vanilla and organic Sweet orange essential oils. It's the perfectly safe baby shampoo, body wash, or hand soap for your entire family.

Mama wants you to know:
This is not a "no-tear" formula, so please use extra care around your angel baby's eyes! The ingenious self-foaming bottle makes sure the pure castile soap stays just where you want it. If you purchase a refill size, please make sure to use one of the self-foaming bottles to properly dispense and foam your Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash.

Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash contains no petrochemical, synthetic surfactants, foaming agents or toxins of any kind. That means no sodium laureth sulfate, cocoamidylpropyl betaine, Quaternium-15, 1,4-Dioxane, formaldehyde or phthalates.

My review:

First off, I was a little leary that this was not a 'no-tear' formulation, because Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash, so what did I do, I tried it out on me first!  Let me say that I absolutely love the fragrance.  The blend of vanilla and sweet orange essential oils is fabulous!  I'm a sucker for citrus and wouldn't have thought of it for a baby product, but it really works and is softened just a little by the vanilla.   Yummy!

The foaming action means two things for me - one, you need very little soap and two, it goes where you put it!  It spread easily and stayed put and didn't run, so I felt comfortable using it on Erik's hair and body.  Erik has shown that he's got pretty sensitive skin, that was the next thing I wondered about.  Again, no worries - I think part of that goes back to how little soap you really need.  We had been using a commercially available baby shampoo and it always seemed so thick and hard to manage, but the Angel Baby® Shampoo & Body Wash was perfect for getting just the right amount of soap in the right places and it washed off much easier than the other soap!

We've been using Angel Baby® Shampoo and Body Wash for almost a month now, and Erik has had no skin irritation from it and I just love how sweet and wonderful he smells after his bath!

You can buy Angel Baby® Shampoo and Body Wash online at along with several other products, including lotion, oil and bottom balm.  It is also available at retailers across Canada, the US and abroad.
