I know many Eco-purists sniff at Burt’s Bee Bath and Body care line ever since it has been bought out by Clorox (Oh the Irony), but I can’t resist the smell of Burt’s Bees Baby Bee’s Shampoo & Wash and The Baby Bee Buttermilk Lotion. It smells absolutely divine and my yoga teacher used to slather it on during Savasana (otherwise known as the Corpse Pose, go figure), so it totally relaxes me at the same time. Relaxed mothers mean relaxed baby. So I have created a bedtime ritual that includes a bath and a baby massage. It helps my little one get to sleep faster. We try to do it every other day now. I also love the fact that the Shampoo & Wash is tearless and it’s wide availability. Target carries them as do most grocery stores. It’s probably the equivalent of Johnson & Johnson gone natural and green.
Other reasons to love Burt’s Baby Bee Bath line
- Paraben and Phthlate free
- Cleansing Blend of Coconut and Sunflower Oil for Shampoo & Body Wash
- Sunflower Oil, Vegetable Glycerine, Beeswax and Buttermilk for Butter Milk Lotion
- Soy protein to nourish and moisturize
- Cruelty Free meaning not tested on animals
- Made with 80% Post Consumer recycled material
Did I mention that the Baby Bee’s Shampoo & Body Wash is TEARLESS? Great for first time moms and dads who are afraid of getting the stuff in the baby’s eyes. There is a big learning curve for the first time parents, so this one is a no brainer. Infant massage, or my version of it anyways, with the Baby Bee buttermilk is the perfect way to help you baby start counting sheep.
This product is probably a great way to introduce more natural and “green” products to your non-green friends. Baby Shower gift, anyone? It is an introductory meaning it has all the components of being Eco-friendly, but probably not enough to impress your more Eco-conscious friends. But I am pretty green and I love it, so who knows? If they could just bottle the smell, it’s the closest thing to Nirvana/Savasana.
