Organic Baby Products: The BabyGanics Range Review

It’s the start of the year which means it’s time to be healthy!  There’s no doubt that products crammed with chemicals and additives are bad for us and whilst I haven’t moved towards a fully organic lifestyle for myself, where possible, I opt for organic products for the kids.

I was therefore delighted to test out a fab range of organic baby products from the US, BabyGanics. Their huge range of products are all made from plant-based ingredients, safe, non toxic and for the more superficial amongst us, are nicely packaged.

BabyGanics

Here’s what I tried out (prices and where to buy are for Hong Kong but if you live elsewhere, you can buy from the usual online retailers etc):

Soothing Foaming Shampoo & Bodywash

Anything that’s a 2 in 1 (i.e. shampoo AND bodywash) and means I can pack fewer bottles is a winner! The bottle also comes in a handy travel size of 100ml.  The liquid has a lovely smell and the instant foaming applicator means there will be enough bubbles to entertain your kids.

HKD $75, available at Baby Outlet

Cover-Up Baby, Sunscreen 30+ SPF

Some kids sunscreens are jampacked with chemicals from parabens to sulfates.  This on the other hand, has no evils.  Unlike other organic sunscreen I’ve tried, this one rubs into the skin easily with no nasty smell.  The product claims it is water-resistant for 80 mins (although mine were in the water for far longer!) and the 59ml bottle is also handy for travel.

HKD $79, available at Baby Outlet

Shoo Fly Bye Natural Insect Repellent

I think it’s really important to use deet free insect repellent on kids.  This one is easy to apply, slightly sticky but has a delicious citronella smell – so much so I’d use it as a room aroma!  Again, comes in a handy travel size of 59ml.

HKD $79, available at Baby Outlet

Hand & Face Wipes

The pack contains 30 wipes, all free of the nasty stuff – chlorine, parabens, sulfates.  These were nice to have in hand luggage, especially when they hand out those horrible airline towels that stink of alcohol.  I’m always on the fence about hand & face wipes, I usually just use regular baby wipes for everything so I probably wouldn’t normally choose to buy these.  

HKD $65, available at Baby Outlet
