EcoMom, formerly Sprout baby, is an eco-conscious, organic/natural baby food and baby care product company based out of Los Angeles. They have a wide array of products, ranging from a variety of organic baby foods and snacks, cloth diapers, bathing and skin care products, toys, and more.
From their website:
"Founded to address the connection between the health of our environment and the health of our children, EcoMom is committed to making eco-conscious living easy, affordable, and rewarding. By helping women begin to take better care of themselves and their families – with education, support, tools and products - we empower them to take the all important first steps toward a healthier, more balanced, and sustainable lifestyle.
EcoMom.com is about bridging the gap between making healthy choices and making easy choices. We created EcoMom because we care and are concerned for babies and their moms, our families and our communities. We want every mom to be an EcoMom because being an EcoMom means making choices that are good for all of us, and the planet which we all share."
Jody from EcoMom sent me the Supergoop sunscreen wipes and the Supergoop everyday lotion to try out and review. These products came just in time for the beautiful 80 degree weather we are experiencing right now! I instantly opened the package and later in the day, tried out the wipes and lotion on Connor and Merasia when we went outside to frolick in the sunshine. To apply, you just take a wipe and gently wipe it over your face and body, or your child(ren)'s face and body. It's specially designed for the sensitive skin of children, which is great because I myself suffer from sensitive skin, and of course the twins have that big awful trait from me, so I can use these wipes and feel comfort in the fact that they aren't going to have an awful reaction to any chemicals, etc. The wipes are SPF 30 and water resistant, as long as you keep up with re applying. For some this would be considered a bit of a hassle, but it's not that bad.
The lotion is also SPF 30 and you apply it the same way as the wipes. It's water resistant as well, and the back of the tube lists this: No parabens, no fragrances, no oxybenzone, no proplyene glycol, no 1-4 dioxane, and no gluten. Where else can you find a product like this these days?? It has a pleasant (not harmful or bland) scent, and even leaves your skin feeling oh-so-soft after applying.
I will definitely be making great use of these products for the rest of our summer and beach trips!
