At times, Riley's skin can be very sensitive. She frequently breaks out in heat rashes and she often has allergic reactions to things as simple as mosquito bites. Because of this, I am always very careful about what I put on her skin and prefer shampoos and soaps with simple, all-natural ingredients.
Thankfully, there's Ecostore USA, an eco-friendly company who's goal is to provide only the most safe and chemical-free products. I was fortunate enough to review the Baby Shampoo and Baby Nappy Balm with Riley. Read more to find out my experiences with these two products.
Baby Shampoo, which retails for $11.00
Baby Nappy Balm, which retails for $10.00
I love the idea of using only plant-based products on Riley's sensitive skin and I also love Ecostore USA's motto of "No Nasty Chemicals"! Even though your skin is a barrier, protecting the inside of your body from the outside world, chemicals from lotions, soaps and creams can still leach through the pores of your skin.
I like the fact that all of Ecostore USA's products are plant-based and all-natural, which means that nothing harmful can accidentally leach through your skin, making you sick. I really liked the Baby Shampoofrom Ecostore USA. It smelled like an herbal lemon combination to me and I liked the scent.
At first, I thought that $11.00 was a little too expensive for baby shampoo, but this shampoo is actually super concentrated, so a little of it goes a very long way. The shampoo lathered well and got Riley's hair squeaky clean, without irritating her eyes or skin.
The Baby Nappy Balm from Ecostore USA was non-greasy and went on easily. I thought the consistency of this balm was a little thin though, as I prefer a more thick paste to apply on Riley's bottom. As soon as the Nappy Balm was applied to her bottom and inadvertently my fingers, it started to run, presumably from our body heat warming it up. I don't know how well this would protect her from diaper rash, since it doesn't seem like it would form much of a barrier against the urine in her diaper.
She never did acquire diaper rash while using the Baby Nappy Balm, but she didn't have any to start off with either. I also was a little disappointed at the very small 2 ounce size. I could use this up in a matter of days and I thought it was very expensive considering you only receive 2 ounces for $10.00. Ecostore USA is committed to making products for you and your family which contain "No Nasty Chemicals" in them and instead give you an all-natural, eco-friendly alternative.
I really liked the Baby Shampoo and because it is so concentrated and worked so well, I think this is a great product to use on children with sensitive skin. However, I wasn't as impressed with the Baby Nappy Balm and thought that you received a very small amount for the money. Ecostore USA carries a wide variety of other all-natural products, including cleaning products, bath and body products, hair products and pet products too.
Disclosure: I received the Baby Shampoo and Baby Nappy Balm from Ecostore USA in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.
