Earth Mama Angel Baby Review & Giveaway!!


Earth Mama Angel Baby - Breastfeeding

A couple of months ago I was contacted by Earth Mama Angel Baby with a challenge- gather the products I use on my skin and find out my toxicity score in the Skin Deep Cosmetic Database. About three years ago I went through all my body care products, did a LOT of research, and tried to find the safest options available- so I was fairly confidant that my score would be pretty low. Luckily, it was! Although my shampoo did rank higher than I expected at a 4 (out of 10), my overall score for the products I shower with came out to an 8. I also tallied up the score for the products I use on my boys, including Shampoo/bodywash, lotion, diaper cream and sunscreen. They came out to an 8 as well, which was actually more surprising for me, as I have tried to be especially diligent in choosing safe products for them!

The good news is, Earth Mama Angel Baby just announced that the score on all of their products is.... ZERO!! Nada! Zip! Zilch! Nothing nasty in ANY of their products! I didn't even think this was possible but they have done it! As soon as we run out of our care products you better believe that I will be investing in some Earth Mama Angel baby products for sure!

In addition to their little challenge, Earth Mama Angel Baby also sent me some of their Postpartum Bath Herbs to try out- heavenly! They were so healing and soothing in those initials days after birth! I know they definitely helped me get back to my old self much quicker! Best of all- they are offering some of these herbs to one of my lucky readers as well!!

Postpartum Bath Herbs

Would you like to win some of these wonderful bath herbs to try for yourself and help promote healing after birth? Just take the same challenge that I did from Earth Mama Angel Baby:
  • Gather some of the most common personal care products you use regularly on yourself or on your baby. Personal care products include shampoo, lotions, soaps, diaper cream, stretch mark oil, etc.
  • Go to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics’ Skin Deep database and enter a product name in the search field. http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/index.php Add up the Skin Deep toxicity rating for all the personal care products that you use on a daily basis on your pregnant or nursing body, or on your baby, to find out what your score is.
  • When you have your score, post your answer to three quick questions (below) in the comments area. Your post in the comments section with your three answers is one entry into the contest. Don’t worry – there are no right or wrong answers, but we think you’ll be surprised at how high the toxin score is for those products you are using that are labeled natural or even organic.
  • 1. What was your Skin Deep toxicity rating score?
  • 2. Were you surprised with the score and/or ingredients?
  • 3. What would you like your score to be?
Additional entries will be granted for all of the following (leave a separate comment for each)- these entries only count AFTER you complete the above challenge:
  • Being a follower (right sidebar)
  • Being a subscriber via e-mail (left sidebar)

I scored a whopping 11 and did quite well until I came to my facial soap. Ugh, it was ranked a 5 and Benzyl alcohol was the culprit. I will definitely be looking for a more friendly face wash! I will be happy if I can drop my overall score down to an 8.

for just using one cleanser and shampoo, i still scored a 10! yikes! VERY surprised with score. I'd like it to average 2 or less per product, so 4 total a day, I guess.

omg scary!
I did my baby girl and she was a 7! We only use burts bees "natural" products, so i though her score would be zero. SO i was very suprised at how high her score was, and that these supposedly natural products contain so many harmful ingredients. I would like her score to be zero, so i will not be buying burts bees anymore!
Thanks for the great giveaway and eye opening link

I scored 9 with just checking out my moisturizer, shampoo and conditioner. I was scared to go any further!! I was extremely surprised at my score and would like it to be in the low to moderate range

Scored a 6 but that's because I don't really use a lot of products on my son. I did play around a bit and it was interesting to see what some products scored. I'm not sure what I'd want my score to be, but if I can get it lower on myself or my son, that would be great.
