Green Elly Skincare: Nothing Smells Sweeter Than a Freshly Bathed Baby

02/06/2009 at 10:00 AM ET

I’ve been trying hard to eliminate nasty chemicals from my kids’ diets, their sippy cups and even their shampoo. Fortunately so has Elly’s mom, Melissa, who founded Green Elly Skincare. Her line of bath and body products are all free of parabens, SLS, phthalates and fragrances but they somehow manage to smell terrific.

Their cute gift set ($50) includes Twinkle Time Massage Gel, Cutie’s Patootie Paste, Sweet Dream Cream and our favorite, Cuddle Me Clean Wash. The wash comes in both Foaming and Gel formulas ($12). We prefer the foam, with its lavender, chamomile, sweet orange and vanilla oils because it smells wonderful and it’s easy to pump with one hand while the other hand holds Baby. The diaper balm, Cutie’s Patootie Paste is very smooth and light and it absorbs into the skin right away. It contains shea butter so we’re using it on winter elbows, knees and heels, too! If we were pressed to choose a least favorite it’d probably be the massage gel. More than one reviewer compared it to the texture of KY… just a little bit sticky. While Green Elly doesn’t tout its products as tear-free, we haven’t had any complaints from the little guys when using the Cuddle Me Clean products as shampoo and body wash. Those CBB test babies are really dedicated, aren’t they? (Of course I tried it on myself first!)

Hello,

I would also like to remind everyone that we should all be using organic lotions and creams in our skin care. Lotions that we apply to our body and face go directly into our blood stream (think nicotin patch), and the harmful chemicals they have inside of them do not do your skin cells, nor your overall health any good.

I would recommend that those wishing to find healthy lotion type into google “healthy lotion” and look for the top companies out there that offer chemical free lotions and face creams. And these will not be the same ones you find in your local drug store. Its called being smart – and being healthy. . .good luck!

I started by typing into google “healthy lotion” and found my skin care company that I love called Made from Earth. . .
