Do 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.
