In light of the recent product recalls affecting children, many parents are searching for safe alternatives. Here you will find a growing list of resources for natural and organic products for your little ones.

SKINCARE
The Cosmetics Database by the Environmental Working Group may be a helpful resource when it comes to choosing skincare products for your family. They provide a helpful
printable guide to choosing safe products for children. After reviewing the ingredients in some of the market's most popular brands, I switched our daughter to a more natural alternative. Here are some brands for your consideration:

BabyBearShop - offers several natural and organic products for mother and baby.

Dimpleskins Naturals - home of Bum Bum Balm, 100% natural diaper cream.

Weleda

California Baby

Little Twig

FOOD
With so much information surfacing on the danger of pesticides, many parents are switching to safely grown agricultural products.  The world of organics can be difficult to navigate so here are some resources to get you started.
