What child doesn't love a bubble bath? I know I loved them as a child and even now when I want to relax. But the sad thing is that there are very few bubble baths that are safe for you or your child. Majority of bubble baths come back with moderate to high hazards on Skin Deep. Some contain sulfates and artificial fragrance which can be harsh on sensitive skin. Not only that, but some (even popular kid brand) bubble baths contain the preservative quaternium-15 which can release formaldehyde at levels as high as one-tenth of the original ingredient. The sad part is that 84 bubbles baths tested, out of 141, by Skin Deep contain quaternium-15. Luckily for Ella, I found Little Twig and she now is enjoy safe bubble baths!
Little Twig is a terrific Eco-friendly company that sells bubble bath, body wash, body care, shampoo, sun screen and more! All of their products are tested by a pediatric dermatologist for efficacy and mildness. All of the Little Twig products are non-irritating, free of parabens, sulfates and synthetic fragrances. They are also made with botanical and organic ingredients!
Ella was sent the Bath Time Basics gift set and Bumble Bee Bath Mitt, and they are awesome. The Bath Time Basics gift set comes with unscented, tangerine, and lavender 17 oz. bubble baths along with a Bumble Bee wash cloth. The scented bubble baths are from natural and organic herbs and fruits. All of Little Twig's bubble baths are created for sensitive skin, but the scented versions are meant for children 1+.
I have loved the variety of smells! Lavender has been great for night time baths, especially since it has soothing and relaxing qualities. We usually do baths during the day, but with working on the townhouse, we've been getting home late. The bubble bath has helped calm Ella and helped her get ready for bed. The Tangerine is my favorite. Something about a tangerine scent puts me in a good mood. And we all know a happy momma = a happy baby. The Unscented is great for little ones with extra sensitive skin and can be used on any aged child. Ella hasn't had a reaction to any of the bubble baths and has been having a blast making bubble beards for the first time. :) You can get the Bath Time Basics from Little Twig for $39.99.
The Bumble Bee Bath Mitt has been a big hit. I usually take a bath with Ella to save time and water. We have had fun singing songs with the mitt and doing puppet shows. The mitt is soft and gentle on your child's skin. We were given a similar mitt last year that was too rough to use. You can get the Bumble Bee Bath Mitt for only $4.49! They also carry a Lady Bug Mitt.
