I recently learned why it is so important that our baby lotion is free of all of my toddler’s food sensitivities. Although I do not consider lotion to be food, he does. And in the time it takes me to blink, he can toddle over to the tub, stretch, stretch, stretch, grab the lotion bottle, and enjoy a quick little snack. I discovered this after finishing my blink, picking him up, and breathing in his sweet and (wait, what?) floral-scented kisses. Oh, no. Minutes later, his face was covered in the red rash he gets after consuming milk products. A quick read-through on the ingredients for his lotion– buttermilk! He’s that sensitive.
Are your products gluten free? If so, where does the Vitamin E come from?
Most of our products are gluten free. We are sensitive to this since we know many people suffer from gluten allergies. One common ingredient that contains gluten is Vitamin E. But the Vitamin E we use is gluten free because it’s derived from cold pressing rice bran.
Excellent! Next, I investigated whether they use any dairy products:
We love animals and refuse to support anything that hurts animals which is why none of our formulas are ever tested on animals (everything we use is food grade and does not require testing, whereas chemical ingredients must be tested). All our makeup brushes are from synthetic fibers. No animals were hurt for their fur and no animals were hurt for any of our ingredients (the only animal ingredient we use is cruelty free honey).
Yay! We placed our order and were very pleased with how quickly it arrived!
100% Pure makes three products especially for children: 2 in 1 Body Wash and Shampoo (19 oz.), Body Cream (8 oz.), and Bubble Bath (4 oz & 12 oz.) The products are sold individually or in a gift set which contains all three. The challenge is choosing the scent! They come in 3 yummy dessert flavors: Mint Chocolate, Strawberry, and Vanilla. They are all gluten free!
The 2 in 1 Wash comes in a foam dispenser. It works well with a bath net sponge or on a (Lightening McQueen) washcloth. The foam makes it so much easier to wash our sons’ hair than a liquid shampoo/wash. Two pumps is just right to lather up their locks and it rinses out quickly. And the yummy scent lingers in their hair a day later!
The Body Cream is really thick and luxurious! Only a little bit of cream is needed– a little goes a long way. It goes on smoothly and, best of all, smells delicious! It is very moisturizing and I have to admit it is now MY preferred hand cream as well!
The Bubble Bath is a little thinner than what we’ve used in the past. It does bubble up nicely, but it takes a little more product than some other bubble bath liquids. I believe this is due to the fact that, like their name, 100% Pure Bubble Bath is 100% pure:
no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins. Does not contain water, gum, thickeners, or emulsifiers or any other fillers.
We have been very, very happy with 100% Pure Kid’s products. I have yet to try Mint Chocolate and Strawberry, but I can say that the Vanilla is absolutely wonderful. I am continually picking my boys up just to smell them. A delicious SCENT! (Although 100% Pure uses only food grade ingredients, we have not taste-tested any of the products!) Oh, and I no longer blink!
