eco.kid organics is an all-natural, environmentally friendly product line geared to kids, ages 3 to 12. It is a line specifically designed for helping to prevent and treat the hair, scalp and skin issues that affect kids. Created in Australia, and distributed in Canada by abundance naturally, eco.kids is a company that screams quality, responsiblity and kid-friendly. All the ingredients are natural, and biodegradable and the packaging is completely recyclable. The products can claim:
- No synthetics
- No artificial preservatives
- No artificial fragrances
- No artificial colouring
- No silicone
I especially love the look of the packaging, and the sense of humour and cute details, like the pinky swear, on every bottle.
I was sent four products from the hair line to try out on my tots. Only after I had used them did I realize that the products are also really geared to keeping kid’s hair free of nasty lice. Even saying that word out loud, stresses me out, so I’m all for being preventative, in a natural way that is also 100% safe for my kids. We tried out the following products:
Step 1 – Prevent – Daily Shampoo (250ml – retails at $15)
Step 2 – Nourish – Daily Conditioner (250ml – retails at $15)
Step 3 – Daily Tonic – Leave -in Conditioner (500ml – retails at $18)
Step 4 – Bubbalicious – Smooth Protection Paste (100g – retails at $14)
After using the products on both the kids, I was sold. The scents weren’t too strong in any way, and my four year old loved the lemony smell of the Shampoo. I didn’t need to use a lot of the product in order to create a good lather and really wash their hair thoroughly, which is a plus because the prices are on the higher end. My daughter has really long, thick hair, and both the Shampoo and Conditioner worked really well for her curls. My favorite product was the Leave-In Conditioner – loved that it was a spray that I could use every day, whether the kids’ hair was freshly washed or not. In fact, I use it on them (and me) every day before they leave for school. And again, it smells fantastic. My son’s favorite was the Bubbalicious paste, because it made him feel like his Daddy who also uses a hair paste to style his do.
I think the eco-kid hair product line is absolutely worth a try. It is a quality product that uses essential oils and ingredients, some of which are only available down under. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly product for your kids, this is a great one to consider! You can find the eco.kid product line for purchase at Loblaws Stores, Fortinos stores, Whole Foods stores, The Big Carrot stores and online at www.abundancenaturally.com.
I’m happy to be able to giveaway a eco.kid prize pack that will include all four of the products that I was given to try out: the daily shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner and hair paste.
