For a product to be labeled certified organic it must have at least ninety five (95%) certified organic ingredients and to be labeled containing organic ingredients the percentage must be above seventy (70%) percent. That is impossible with any shampoo or conditioner unless you count the percentage of water in the product. Luckily for parents of babies there are responsible makers of almost organic baby shampoo which will still clean the baby’s hair while eliminating most of the chemicals that can cause problems with a baby’s delicate exterior.
California Baby makes a Tea Tree and Lavender Body Wash and Shampoo in an 8.5 ounce bottle for just under twelve ($12) dollars. It works on dandruff, lice, cradle cap and dermatitis. It is a no tears formula and has no SLS, DEA or numbing agents to cause issues with your baby. The scent is a combination of lavender and tea tree. The tea tree has anti bacterial properties and the lavender helps to calm stressed feelings and any irritated skin and scalp.
Another organic baby shampoo is offered by Angel Baby. Their description touts its being made from a pure gentle castile soap with just enough lavender to calm the user. It comes in a foaming soap dispenser so you can use it at the bathroom sink as well as the tub. The product is also a combination body wash and shampoo and they make the point that they only use certified organic ingredients and the product is also certified “vegan”. This product is in a 5.3 ounce foaming dispenser for $12.95. Unless your child is hyper allergic to most of the baby shampoo products it is very expensive to use organic baby shampoo when Johnson’s sixteen ounce bottle of baby shampoo is less than $3.
