Kidscounter: Safe, Non-Toxic, Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash

beautycounter-shampoo-195x195Do you really know what is in your child’s shampoo or conditioner? Probably not. That is because most products from major companies and corporations don’t have to disclose all the ingredients in their products. Sometimes, chemicals are the byproducts of other ingredients.  And many of these ingredients can be harmful to human health.

Yes, something we buy to use on our kids, and we don’t even have the right to know what’s in them.

Thankfully many parents and environmental groups haven’t accepted this. Chemicals such as formaldehyde and 1,4 dioxane are being phased out of Johnson and Johnson products.  This company is reformulating based on consumer demand– but fought the claims that these chemicals were harmful in the first place.

Want to support a company that has FULL transparency, advocates for toxic chemical reform, and donates to the Environmental Working Group, Breast Cancer Fund, and Healthy Child Healthy World– and makes great products that work?

Yeah, me too. Enter Beautycounter.

I tried Kidscounter shampoo, conditioner, and body wash with my two daughters. They have a nice, fresh scent from essential oils, not from some chemical cocktail that contains phthalates that could alter their hormones. The scent is not overwhelming. The shampoo suds up nicely and the conditioner– Not a Knot, is creamy and smooths tangles.

I’ve tried some natural products that smell too strong, leave a film, or don’t suds up. KidsCounter is different. We love all the products and will use them regularly. They are clean, fresh, and work.

I’ve now partnered with BeautyCounter and would be thrilled to answer any of your questions or hear what you think about toxins in hair care and soaps for kids. You can find Kidscounter products here.

    I was really on the impression before when I still don't have a kid of my own that all baby shampoos contain mild to really no chemicals at all since these are for babies. But when I already have a baby, I started looking at these things cautiously. When I became a mother, I am more vigilant and careful on things that my baby uses and even on the things (hazardous and non-hazardous) we use (and disposes) at home. Thanks for this, this is really helpful. – Mrs. Reynolds

    It's amazing all the chemicals that are found in body care products. Once you start reading labels, it can be quite shocking. I personally believe that less is more. Less chemicals + less ingredients = more natural + healthy. Our site is dedicated to keeping kids healthy. That's why we offer products for you and your kids that are certified organic, vegan, cruelty free, and free of pthalates, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, and mineral oils.
