Healthy/organic/natural baby care products are hard to come by and especially hard to shop for in Canada. I love the Environmental Working Group’s website. You can go on there and see how certain products rank re: health concerns. A zero is the lowest score that a product can get which is the best, healthiest option. After I did hours or research on what are the best products out there AND what I can get my hands on in Canada, I thought I should share this in case it may be helpful for someone else. The following are items with a score of zero by the EWG as well as where it’s cheapest to find them (keep in mind that we don’t live near a big city):
Soap: Live Clean Baby Bar of Soap (Unscented). Available on Amazon.ca or Babies R Us.
Shampoo: Earth Mama Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash (Naturally scented or unscented). Available on Amazon.ca
Diaper Cream: Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm. Available on Amazon.ca
Wipes: WaterWipes. Available on Amazon.ca
And I’ll add these to the list as they make me feel better about what’s in the products that’s cleaning bottles, pacifiers, toys, etc.
Dish soap: Babyganics Foaming Dish & Bottle Soap. Available at Babies R Us.
Dishwasher detergent: Seventh Generation Auto Dish Powder, Free & Clean. Available on Amazon.ca
Hope this helps! I can report back later what I think of these products. I’m excited that there ARE safer options babies in Canada.
