Going Organic with Green People Plus Giveaway

IMG_0892

 

Recently I’ve been switching to organic products for my children wherever possible and I’m so glad I have. This organic shampoo and conditioner from Green People not only smells amazing but it also doesn’t contain any of the nasties that many other shampoos and conditioners do.

I’m a big fan of Green People products, we’ve tried their sun lotions and hand sanitiser before and love them. Their products are really good quality and are kind on my children’s sensitive skin.

Why organic?

I like using organic products on my kids as they both have very sensitive skin, Max in particular as he has eczema. Green People organic products are kind to their skin and do not cause any irritation or eczema flare ups.

Did you know that children have thinner and more absorbent skin than adults? Which makes it a less effective barrier against chemical toxins. Research suggests the rates of eczema and allergies among children are on the rise and the early introduction of harsh toiletries onto sensitive skin may be a factor.

As with everything from Green People, the Organic Children range is naturally free from petrochemicals, SLS, Parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrances, plus they are super kind to the skin and scalp too. It’s scary to think that these nasties are hidden in a lot of baby and children’s ranges.

Berry smoothie shampoo

This shampoo is jam-packed with organic nourishment to hydrate and enhance young hair. Plant proteins feed the hair essential nutrients, coating each strand to give a beautifully glossy and vibrant shine. Coupled with Yucca, these proteins add a softness to the hair making it tangle-free and easy to comb.

100% certified product made with 82.2% certified organically grown ingredients.

Berry smoothie conditioner

Beautifully created to gently condition fine and flyaway hair. Wheat protien in this natural blend helps banish tangles and smooth the hair shaft, coupled with a strengthening complex of plant oils, rich in fatty acids, which promote silky soft hair.

100% certified product made with 89.1% certified organically grown ingredients.

I would give both of these products 10/10! They smell absolutely wonderful, didn’t irritate my children’s skin, made it soft and tangle free and super shiny too! Fantastic products.

The berry smoothie shampoo and conditioner are priced at £9.50 each, more information can be found here.
