Review: Green People ‘Organic Babies’ Baby Wash & Shampoo

Emma has been battling with atopic (facial) eczema since she was a newborn. Although I did expect baby spots when she was a few weeks old and waited patiently for them to disappear, at 4 months old with red, aggravated skin, I realised that something wasn’t quite right. The good news was that it wasn’t affecting her at all, it didn’t seem itchy but I just wondered if there is something I should be doing.

The advice we were given was to just use water in the bath too, after months of using a tiny bit of another baby bubble bath, on the advice of a family member who does her research high and low into baby products! We noticed a huge difference since ditching the bath wash, although it’s still been a slow burner in improving the redness of Emma’s cheeks. It just goes to show that you really have to find the products that work for your baby!

Fast forward to 9 months later and no joy with finding a replacement for bathtime. It wasn’t too big a deal as I’m a firm believer in ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!’ but as Emma has started to really enjoy her baths and now after her bedtime story crawls to the bathroom door and gives it a knock…I had a hunch she’d enjoy a bubble bath now. So when the lovely people at Green People introduced me to their Organic Babies¬†range, I really wanted to give it a try.

At first glance, I could see the bath wash has no nasties – so no parabens, chemicals, colourants or alcohol. I know this may seem obvious for a baby bath product, but you’d be surprised what’s hidden in some products. Green People’s products are all certified organic, ethically produced and this one smells of gorgeous lavender which was a lovely addition to our bathtime routine! It’s also clearly marked on the label that a little goes a long way and this couldn’t be more true, as only a pea-sized amount produced all the bubbles in the pictures below. To top it off, The Daily Mail tell us that this very product is used for Princess Charlotte’s bathtime too – it’s good enough for royalty!

Organic Babies bath and shampoo propped up against the side of the bath, covered in bath foam - plastic boat in foreground and other bath products surrounding Emma was intrigued by the bubbles and just kept running them through her fingers – it was so adorable to watch as she discovers something new. Eventually she started splashing and saw that she could see all the way down to the bath mat! As we gave her hair and face a wash, I could tell that it was a very gentle and natural product, the soap trickled over her eyelids at times and didn’t sting her eyes at all. Absolutely perfect as the last thing we need at the end of a tiring day is more tears ūüėČ

I’ve been so impressed with Green People’s products and would highly recommend this baby wash. At ¬£7.50 for 150ml, I think this is great value for money as I reckon this would last me at least a couple of months. I love that they are a 100% certified organic, ethical British brand with undiluted, natural products¬†– it’s just what I have been looking for and very pleased to have been introduced to them.

Disclosure: I was gifted Green People products for the purprose of this review but all words are my honest opinion. You can find Green People products at all good health stores, Ocado or via their website

    Mimi gets sore patches on her cheeks too especially when it’s windy or she has a cold and it’s not easy as you say to find soaps that aren’t drying or irritating I will definitely be giving this range a try xxx

    Oh this stuff looks great – especially for the summer when hot skin is more prone to flare ups. Gorgeous photos too, hope you had a tight grip on your phone for the bath shots ūüėČ #tribe

      Thank you so much! She was loving it – almost like, why haven’t we done this before?! X

    The Popple gets little patches of exzcema on the backs of her legs and sometimes on her arms – I should try a product like this to see if it helps. It’s not so bad now, but it gets worse in the winter time. She’d love the bubbles too! #BloggerClubUK

    I only use natural and organic products for the kids without all the nasties. They have very sensitive skin so the more natural the better. I have never used this products before but after your great review I will definitely give them a go. #triballove

    I have sensitive skin and rosacea, so I have to be careful with what I use on my skin. This range sounds lovely for A. #TribalLove

    I would love to give this a try! Just because Mini has had little spots appear now and then, and I have not the foggiest where they could be coming from, but it has crossed my mind that her bath products aren’t the kindest on her skin. Lucy xx #triballove

    This looks lovely and so do the bubbles. It is so important to find something that suits their skin and is reasonable too! Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst x
