As moms, we typically put ourselves last. Our family comes before us, and we just don’t take care of our own bodies like we should. Too much effort and too much money is typically involved. You browse the internet looking for the best in natural and organic skincare products for your children, but when it comes to yourself, you grab whatever is on sale without keeping in mind how good or bad the product is for your body. Enough is enough. We all should be treating ourselves to the same natural and organic products we demand for our children. When conducting research, I discovered Promise Organic products.
With the increasing demand for natural and organic products on the rise within the global organic cosmetics markets, Promise Organic delivers what consumers want. These revolutionary products are are formulated with the highest level of purity, safety and efficacy consumers demand. When reading labels, we discover the “hidden” ingredients that aren’t spoken about. Consumers see “natural” and “organic” and assume that the product is just that, natural and organic. Upon closer examination at these products, we discover that these products contain potentially harmful and toxic ingredients that should not be being used on ourselves or our children. In fact, the more research I personally did, the more terrifying facts I unearthed. Did you know that more than 1,400 harmful ingredients in personal care products are banned in other countries, but not here in the U.S? As a parent, this is unsettling.
With Promise Organic products, I was delighted to see that the strict NSF criteria for organic products and have replaced any potentially harmful ingredients with plant-derived alternatives that smell and feel great. Their baby products contain rich coconut butter, which is a custom blend of organic coconut oil and Fair Trade Certified Organic Shea Butter, which allows me, as a mother of two, to feel good about what I’m using on my children. On top of that, Promise Organic vows to maintain their promise to help protect the Earth’s natural resources and beauty without the cruelty to animals. Their promise is simple: no parabens, harsh sulfates, silicones, artificial colorants or synthetic fragrances.
Promise Organic is affordable, making my decision to switch from the old products I used an easy one. I recently started using their baby skincare collection, as well as other products from their skincare line, and I have rave reviews for each item.
Replenishing Coconut Butter 2-in-1 Baby Wash with Oatmeal ($7.99) & Replenishing Coconut Butter Baby Lotion with Oatmeal ($8.99)
Not only are the price points of these items fantastic, but the soothing oatmeal and rich coconut butter hydrates and nourish’s my boys skin. Plus, they’re hypoallergenic. My 7 week old son recently developed a skin irritation and after a few days using the Replenishing Coconut Butter Baby Lotion it started to go away. The lotion smells great and doesn’t leave the greasy residue that other products tend to leave behind. The body wash is just as amazing, and both products give off the “new baby” smell which is nostalgic as your children grow.
Gentle Coconut Butter Diaper Rash Cream with Oatmeal ($9.99)
I’ve used other brands of diaper rash cream before and this one definitely takes the cake! Promise Organic’s diaper rash cream creates a protective barrier on baby’s skin to help soothe the diaper rash and soften the skin. The non-nano zinc oxide helps reduce and prevent redness associated with diaper rash and helps to minimize inflammation around the irritated area. The organic neem oil protects skin from other possibly harmful bacterial. I love that this cream actually rubs in quickly and doesn’t leave a white residue on top of my child’s skin.
SPF 30 Sunscreen Baby Lotion ($12.99)
Melanoma Cancer is something that runs in my family, so when it comes to protecting my skin, as well as my family’s skin, we don’t settle. I have searched high and low for a product that is not only natural and organic but something that won’t break the bank. Promise Organic‘s sunscreen is safe, effective and free from other potentially harmful ingredients making it a shoe-in for my family. The revolutionary formula contains NSF-certified Shea Butter including a blend of coconut oil, sunflower oil, olive oil, jojoba oil and other plant extracts, that each melt at different points when subjected to sun exposure. This means that your child’s skin is protected, nourished and hydrated continuously. It’s recommended to apply 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply every two hours or 80 minutes after skin has become wet.
Promise Organic‘s baby skincare collection has been a game-changer in my household, so I decided to look into their skincare collection for myself. Why shouldn’t I subject my skin to the same natural and organic products I’m using on my children? I have used their hand cream, facial scrub, body lotion and sunscreen.
I have naturally dry skin, so when it comes to finding the ideal body lotion, I need something that will moisturize my skin without adding the thick, sludgy residue other lotions leave behind.The combination of argan oil and shea butter leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized. The formula is clinically proven to improve the skin’s elasticity. Who doesn’t want a product that improves skin’s elasticity that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg? Did I mention how amazing it smells?
My husband suffers from severe dry hands, which means he is always on the lookout for moisturizer that works fast without leaving that overall greasy feeling. When he started using the Coconut Milk Hand Cream with Shea Butter, he was pleasantly surprised on how his hands felt. They were smoother, less cracked and left his hands feeling moisturized.
Who doesn’t love their face feeling clean? I have searched high and low for the right facial scrub, and up until I tried the Coconut Milk Facial Scrub by Promise Organic, I was striking out. This moisturizer not only smells great, but it leaves my face feeling smooth and clean. It exfoliates my skin leaving it smelling like sugar and walnut, and what’s even more fantastic about this particular facial scrub is that it’s ideal for sensitive skin! Plus, the micro-beads designed to help exfoliate my skin are not abrasive unlike others I have tried in the past, so it doesn’t feel as though I’m tearing up my skin when cleaning it.
Again, if you’re seeking a product that is a natural formula that is free from all synthetic and harmful ingredients, then Promise Organic’s sunscreen is for you. Similar to the baby blend lotion, it’s a creamy formula combining Zinc Oxide, shea butter and a blend of essential oil, and it’s safe for all skin tones. It’s recommended to apply 15 minutes before sun exposure and one should reapply every 80 minutes. Unlike other sunscreens I’ve used in the past, it doesn’t leave that greasy feeling or takes several minutes to rub into the skin. It leaves skin protected and smelling great!
