Safe, All Natural Products for Moms & Babies! Earth Mama Angel Baby Review & Giveaway

All moms are now aware of the dangers lurking within our children’s products–BPA, phthalates, parabens, harsh chemicals, neurotoxins, carcinogens, and sadly–much, much more. We all want to do our best for our kids, but in a sea of unsafe products, it can be very confusing and overwhelming to actually find the ones that are safe. One area that moms have to be especially careful when buying is children’s personal care products such as lotions, bath wash, ointments, shampoos, etc. The problem is that our government does not require any health studies or testing BEFORE they are sold. According to the Environmental Working Group, “people apply an average of 126 unique ingredients on their skin daily” and where do these end up? They get absorbed by your skin {body’s largest organ} and go down the drain impacting our environment and our health–including our kids who are more sensitive to these factors!

In an effort to provide people with the truth about what is actually in their cosmetics and personal care products, the Environmental Working Group created the Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database, which rates products on a range of 0 to 10 {0=safest}. Finding a product with a 0 score is difficult. Finding a company or brand with every product they make scoring a 0 was impossible. Until now. I am truly excited to let you know that Earth Mama Angel Baby products ALL SCORE A ZERO! Earth Mama Angel Baby has set a new standard for truly toxin-free, natural products!

Earth Mama Angel Baby sent me their Angel Baby Kit {pictured above} for me to review. The kit includes

  • Angel Baby Bath Blossoms
  • Angel Baby Bottom Balm
  • Angel Baby Lotion
  • Angel Baby Oil
  • Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash
  • Angel Baby Sleep CD

All of the products in this kit are {of course} 100% natural! It comes packaged in a cute box ready for gift-giving and is the PERFECT baby shower, new mom, new baby gift! All of the products are wonderful, but my favorite hands down in the Baby Bath Blossoms. It is a loose herb blend made with pure, organic blossoms of calendula, chamomile, rosebuds and lavender along with organic lemon balm and moisturizing organic oatmeal. Inside, you’ll also find a muslin bag. You fill the bag with the herbs and pop into your baby’s bath water. It smells HEAVENLY and is so calming! Perfect for a fussy baby or just as a treat before bed. Oh, and it’s not just for babies–moms will want to use it too!

Want It: The Angel Baby Kit retails for $39.95 and can be purchased online at Earth Mama Angel Baby.

    I was most surprised to find cancer causing agents in my baby shampoo!
    I just use normal products, so I guess that I can't be surprised that they are showing that they aren't too good!

  29. my score was 10
    I wasn't really surprised but my shampoo contained alchohol.

    I use mostly natural so I was a little surprised.

  35. My score was a 2 for my son's California Baby sunscreen lotion with citronella

    Can't really say I was surprised to find anything that stands out, half of it I can't even pronounce!

    It's not labeled organic/natural but it has organic Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil (what the heck is that?) which is linked to cancer. Scary!

  36. I'm a subscriber

  37. My rating for the products I have handy was 12.

    I'm surprised so many products contain some form of alcohol.

    I wasn't surprised that “natural” products still score high on the toxicity test – even though they're natural, they're not magically made harmless!

  38. I'm a blogger follower :)

    Thanks for the green giveaway!

  39. My shampoo scored a 5. It's not labeled organic or natural so I'm not that surprised, I guess. I'm surprised to learn about the dangers of some ingredients – the PEG-7M sounds especially scary

  40. I follow

  41. Two of them were a 6 and one was a 5.

    I was surprised to see Red #40 in them and other stuff I can't even pronounce.

    I am surprised at the toxins in so called organic products.

  43. My score was a 7 for Johnson & Johnson's baby lotion. How scary that millions of babies have this on their skin! I'm surprised it has synthetic beeswax in it.

    Nope, I'm not surprised that organic/natural products are toxic too!
