Safe skincare for the Kids

Do you ever wonder why so many kids have allergies now? I don't remember ANY classmates having to sit at a different "nut free" table during lunch. I never had a friend with an inhaler or asthma. I had no idea what lactose intolerance or dairy free was.  Is it something environmental causing these changes? The more research I do, the more I'm beginning to become convinced it is. As a Mom, I feel like I owe it to my kids to protect them and part of that is becoming more aware of what I'm putting not only in them but on them. If you follow TFR, you know I've been increasingly interested in trying more natural and organic products. Since buying products is more or less a hobby for me, I am the product pusher of the household. If you want to push products too, why not replace what you are already using with healthier, safer options? I put together a list of some great options to try on your babies, toddlers, and/or children. 

Beautycounter has a kids line and this combo of shampoo, conditioner and body wash has an amazing citrus smell. A little bit goes a l o n g way so use sparingly and you'll find they don't cost more than something you'd buy at the drugstore. I absolutely LOVE this soap/playdoh/clay bar from LUSH. They are each a mixture of essential oils and other ingredients safe enough to eat. They smell delish and the kids will have a blast in the tub with it! Use it on their hair, body, face. My oldest hates toothpaste. If he even sees someone brushing their teeth, he gags. This Honest Co. is literally the first paste I've used where he hasn't thrown up. I'd say that's worth every penny. The bug spray is a light smell and not just for the kiddos. I've used it on myself and it works! {DEET free of course}The last two products I haven't personally tried, but they look amazing. From Fairy Tales, the sun spray contains coconut oil, almond oil, jojoba and banana extracts. Sounds like a yummy poolside cocktail! Hey-nobody's perfect! if your little one does accidentally get a sunburn, use California Baby's after SunSpray to ease irritated skin. 

Let me know if you have any products that you'd like to add to this list!
