With all the awful things I come across regarding harmful chemicals, parabens, phthalates, and formaldehyde found in the very products we use every single day… it’s nice to find a skin care line that isn’t completely loaded with them.In fact it’s a relief. Even better, a skin care line for kids. TruKid™ was developed by a busy working mother of five, Jennifer Adams Bunkers, who saw a huge gap in products available for our children’s skin. Her line includes everything from face wash, soap, body and foot lotions, sunscreen and lip balms all created with natural, non-toxic and free of potentially harmful ingredients like Parabens. With ingredients like aloe, almond oil and beeswax on their list, you can’t go wrong. The best part? It’s not ridiculously overpriced. You can purchase these products on their website, where you can also find more information about the “Toxic bad Guys” which is a great list and explanation. She also provides a printable “cheat sheet” to use while you’re out shopping. Their website is cute too. I’ll be trying out their sunscreen and a few other items to see how they hold up. An snippet from a recent press release:
The Company [TruKid] made a pledge with the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, whose goal is to protect consumers and workers by requiring the health & beauty industries to phase out chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects and other health issues, and replace them with safer alternatives.
Its nice to know there are companies out there who care.
