Finding a truly natural shampoo and body wash for our baby was harder than I had imagined. After trying several of the brand names I felt they contained too many chemically derived ingredients, and I started to look for a more natural version.
I found that not all products that claim to be all natural met my criteria, until I found Yes to Baby Carrots! Purchased at my local Target store, Yes to Baby Carrots Gentle Foaming Shampoo & Body Wash for Babies & Toddlers retailed for around $7.00, and looked to be exactly what I wanted in a baby product.
Yes to Baby Carrots Gentle Foaming Shampoo & Body Wash for Babies & Toddlers comes in a 10 ounce bottle with a pump style lid. There are two varieties, the unscented and the scented. The unscented has a white label while the scented, which I purchased, has an orange colored label.
The label on the front of the bottle states the product contains organic melon for softening, vitamin E to moisturize, and carrot oil to nourish the body. At the bottom it reads “Yes Yo 100% Natural”. It is a hypoallergenic and tear-free product, but the label on the back does warn to avoid contact with eyes.
I love the fact that Yes to Baby Carrots Gentle Foaming Shampoo & Body Wash for Babies & Toddlers does not contain any petroleum ingredients, SLS or parabens. There has been a lot in the news over the past few years about the dangers of parabens, and I personally prefer to avoid them, especially in baby products since their immune systems are not yet mature.
Yes to Baby Carrots Gentle Foaming Shampoo & Body Wash for Babies & Toddlers is a pleasure to use! Compared to another brand of natural baby shampoo and body wash, which also dispensed via a pump style lid, the Yes to Carrots is the winner by a large margin. The pump dispenses a nice amount of thick and luxurious foam. Sometimes I squirt it directly onto a washcloth, and other times I pump it directly into my hands.
The cleanser is free of dyes and has a very pleasant scent. My daughter and I love it! I am pleased to tell you the fragrance is 100% natural and is certified organic. The scent reminds me of baby powder and citrus fruit, it’s very appealing. It also does a wonderful job of cleaning our 8 month old baby, and it is gentle to her skin and scalp. We have had problems with other tear free shampoos causing her scalp to dry out and flake. My sister-in-law who is a master beautician tells me that most tear free products will do this. Not so with Yes to Baby Carrots Gentle Foaming Shampoo & Body Wash for Babies & Toddlers, it actually seems to be helping her dry scalp as well as the eczema on her legs.
If you are a stickler for ingredients like I am, I think you will be pleased with the ingredients used in this product. The ingredients on the bottle are different from the ingredients listed at online retailers. My bottle lists: water, decyl glucoside, glycerin, carrot seed oil, carrot juice, vitamin E, retinyl palmitate, calendula officinalis extract, melon fruit extract, pumpkin seed oil, fragrance, cirtic acid, potassium sorbate, and sodium benzoate.
I enthusiastically recommend Yes to Baby Carrots Gentle Foaming Shampoo & Body Wash!
