I am not some hippie dippie BUT I am trying to use soaps, shampoos, etc that are free of dyes, perfumes, parabens, sulfates, etc because I listened to a radio segment that was all about how parabens and these other things are effecting our hormone levels. Even BPA free plastic isn’t good for us😦 I still use plastic because I haven’t been able to find replacements for sippy cups and other things like that. I just don’t put any plastic in the dishwasher since the heat breaks it down. I am also a minimalist so I wash a lot of stuff by hand and don’t bother waiting for the dishwasher load to happen because I want the stuff clean before that. I have one stainless steel sippy cup and have been hunting stainless steal cups and stuff but it’s not that easy nor cheap!
ANYWAY- Walgreens makes a whole line called Ology that is free of dyes, parabens, sulfates, etc. I thought it was worth sharing because this line makes trying to live a somewhat cleaner life possible. It is more affordable and just might go on sale time to time, plus you can buy a bunch of different products in one store making it easy to look for one label that you don’t have to read! I also buy Burt’s Bees which is also available at Walgreens that is 20% off this week so go stock up on your paraben free face washes!
Oh one more thing- I noticed that Johnson and Johnson makes a natural baby wash! Another brand called Babyganics also has a baby wash. I mention these both because they come in pump bottles and I find that’s most convenient during bath time, you need only one hand to get the soap out. I’ll probably get one of these next because I need a pump. And I think Loreal has a kids shampoo that is paraben/sulfate free but don’t quote me on it.
Peace. Love. Happiness.
