I reviewed Broody Chick’s compostable diapers a while back and really loved them. They’re soft which has always been a peeve of mine with eco-friendly diapers. They’re kind of scratchy. Anyway, after loving her diapers I wanted to see what else she made and was so pleased to find out she had a line of bath care products! I was excited to check out the whole line. Broody Chick is a company based in Sidney, British Columbia. And the “chick” is a mother of 3 boys who was tired of looking for skin care without chemicals. So she made her own. Using local ingredients and selling from her family run cottage based business, Broody Chick continues to provide products to Canadian stores and online shops through their website.
Broody Chick carries a great range of bath products including a very gentle and mild Bath Bar and Every Body Wash, Every Body Lotion and baby care items like her awesome Boody Balm and Wonderbalm. I have been using her products for some time (this review is long overdue!) and really love the pure, clean and effective nature of them. Not to mention they are essentially chemical free.
I use the Every Body Wash on my 1 year old and I just love the way it makes him smell. It’s not heavily scented at all but it does have this really clean scent. The kind you was to keep sniffing later. It makes me want to snuggle up with him and take a nap. It works in a foaming pump so I can use it all over and as a baby shampoo too.
The Boody Balm is another favorite. It comes in a big jar and looks like frosting, and even applies creamy and smooth. It protects really well and doesn’t irritate my sons skin like some natural diaper creams can. I know some of you have had trouble with CA Baby being irritating. Boody Balm is also zinc free, so cloth diaper-ers will love it. I just really like the texture of this stuff… it’s very soothing. I’ve used it on myself too when I’ve gotten chaffing or irritation from workouts.
Broody Chick also makes a very nice Sniffs and Snuffles balm that has a light eucalyptus scent for those days when your young ones have a cold. Ditch the Vicks folks… this stuff is mild and safe.
Rating: I also want to mention that Broody Chicks products kind of deserve to be in the Top Picks of our 2010 Safer Skin Care Cheat Sheet. The only thing holding it in the Better Choices Section is the stearic acid which is only in the Boody Balm and the Every Body Lotion. Other than that one minor thing this line is essentially chemical free and I highly recommend it. All her products works and feel amazing and I use them on myself and my kids. Love.
GET THEM: You can purchase Broody Chick bath care products and her compostable diapers and wipes at a variety of online retailers. Check her website for online retailers and if you are in Canada (Hello Canadian readers!) you can find them at several Canadian stores.
