Review It Wednesday with a Giveaway!

We were hot and sweaty. It was the middle of the day, but my 2 1/2-year-old grandbaby and I decided to hop in the shower. As we were enjoying the spray of cool water, I thought about how many other parents or grandparents do the same, without thinking twice about the products they're using on those precious little ones.

I was relieved and happy to reach for a product, uncap the lid and squirt some fragrant foam in Laura's hands, knowing what I was giving her was 100% toxin-free. I can't imagine using anything else.

This past week, I've been trying to subdue my anger at the U.S. government for their assault on the citizens who pledge allegiance to the flag and then put government-sanctioned poisons into and onto their bodies. Quite honestly, I'm infuriated. But that's not what this post is about.

This post is about a product and company we all can trust to provide safe and effective products for our families.While there are many products in their line that I could sing the praises of, today I simply want to focus on one.

Angel Baby Shampoo and Body Wash by Earth Mama Angel Baby. With the first puff of foam in Laura's little hands, the aroma of vanilla and orange gently fills the air. I was able to wash her, head-to-toe, with this amazingly gentle castile soap, knowing that there wasn't a single toxin to disrupt her hormones or rev up some cancer cells. That made me want to pin a "Good Grandma" badge on, but, ummm, we were in the shower and there wasn't exactly any good places to pin it!

After sudsing Laura up, I turned the power of Angel Baby on me. Why not? It certainly wasn't going to hurt me. I personally wouldn't touch the baby shampoo if it was perhaps Johnson & Johnson Johnson's No More Tears Baby Shampoo, which rates pretty high for immunotoxicity rates. Sure, it may reduce the chance for tears during bathtime, but the long-range repercussions could be devastating.

Does Angel Baby Shampoo and Body Wash boast the 'no more tears' claim? Not during the bath ... but down the road, you can bet the zero-toxins formula had no ill affects on your child's development or health. Now that's something to smile about!

The ingredients in Angel Baby Shampoo and Body Wash are all USDA Certified Organics. There is nothing artificial in this wonder soap ... nothing. Every drop, every luscious mound of foam, is completely safe. Just don't get any in your baby's eyes. The self-foaming dispenser keeps the soap from running, which reduces the risk of that irritating, but safe, soap-in-the-eyes experience.

The castille soap contains organic calendula. What it does not contain (unlike other popular baby products on the market) is petrochemicals, synthetic surfactants, sodium laureth sulfate, cocoamidylpropyl betaine, Quarternium-15 (you've heard me talk about this toxin before!), 1,4-Dioxane, formaldehyde or phthalates. You can actually pronounce all the ingredients in Angel Baby Shampoo and Body Wash! How's that for a pleasant change of pace?!

It smells good. It's safe. And it's effective in removing all the dirt and grime your little ones, and not so little ones, tend to get into.

Now, are you ready for a happy dance?

Reviewing it for you,



  1. We used to dig for snails and keep them in a bucket all day. They were our pets. The snails didn't get us too dirty but the digging sure did. Then we'd try to make perfume out of the forsythia flowers. We didn't smell any better by the time we were done. :-)

  2. oops, password issue- hoping this doesnt end up a double post-

  3. I used to help on my grandparents farm. We used to climb into the hay loft and have hay fights, by throwing the hay at each other, by the time we were done we were covered in the dust and hay.

  4. My favortie thing to do to get dirty when I was little was go into my grandmas backyard and climb in the fruit trees and pick fruit. She had figs, apricots,pomagranats, oranges,and lemons. We always enjoyed spending hours back there and always came in filty and with our tummys full lol. frenchyloveslarry@yahoodotcom Francine Miranda

  5. Jumping into a big ol' pile of raked leaves!

  6. My favorite way to get dirty as a kid was playing in the dirt, either with my grandma in the garden or just in the yard. Loved it.

  7. My favorite way to get dirty when I was little was playing in the woods and in the stream with my neighborhood friends!

  8. My favorite way to get dirty was making fresh, homemade mud pies!

  9. That's exactly what my husband said, Toni!

  10. O how the list could go on...but I would say playing in the woods, half the time barefoot. I loved just being back there whether it was up in a tree, building a fort or just climbing around on boulders. Mudpies were always fun too!

  11. We went exploring in the woods behind my cousin's house, which usually ended with us wading through the creek. I'm pretty sure we always came back muddy and smelling like fish.
