Review and Giveaway: Baby and Toddler Bath Goodies from Rocky Mountain Soap Company

I think it's pretty typical for parents to use baby shampoo, baby soap, and baby lotion on their kids from the time they are born.  We're probably just weird hippies or something, because Aias has only used shampoo and/or soap a handful of times in his life.  From the time he was born, we just didn't really see any point in putting chemicals or soap on him, and babies have such nice soft skin already, we never really had any need for lotion.  There have been a few occasions where he got something really messy on him that required soap, but not too many.  There's not much warm water can't get rid of, right?

Now he's getting older and his messes are a bit more intense.  Mud from the playground, mystery substances he finds on the group, etc.  These sorts of things seem to require a little extra something... so we decided we'd start looking at different soaps and shampoos for kids.  Lots of them smell beautiful, but the ingredients are not very impressive.

If you are looking for a gentle product with ingredients you can trust on even a new baby, check out Rocky Mountain Soap Company... they are Canadian hand made products  made with plants! Their ingredient lists are really benign.  We recently tried out the Tiny Tot Foaming Wash, Baby Body Butter, and Baby Bear Soap.  Check out the ingredients on the Tiny Tot Foaming Wash:

Aqua (Water)
Potassium Cocoate (Coconut Oil)
Potassium Olivate (Olive Oil)
Potassium Jojobate (Jojoba Oil)
Lavandula Angustifolium (Lavender) Oil
Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Oil

Basic, natural, and recognizable ingredients- NICE!

We feel really good about using these products on Aias, and as a bonus, they smell good and they are fun to use.  The Tiny Tot Foaming Wash comes in a bottle he can use himself and he thinks it's pretty awesome to cover himself with the foam.  He also thinks it's pretty fun to rub the Baby Body Butter on his legs because it looks like a stick of deodorant or something.

Best of all, we don't have to worry about nasty chemicals getting into his bloodstream when he uses it. 

The only thing to be aware of with these products is that because they are real, old fashioned soaps, they work wonderful on delicate skin, but they are not tear-free.  The only real problem you'll probably have with these products is that you'll want to use them on yourself!

You can enter to win a gift pack from Rocky Mountain Soap Company below, which includes the Tiny Tot Foaming Wash ($14.99 value), Baby Body Butter ($13.49 value) and Baby Bear Soap ($4.99 value).

Don't forget to check out their site, as their line of baby soaps is only a small fraction of what they offer.  I've used almost all of their lip butters and they are amazing products!
