I ran across this line of baby care in the “natural” product aisle at my local Target. It’s safe to say I’ve got a ton of products but when I saw the red price reduction sticker on some Erba Organics Baby Shampoo and a bottle of body wash for $2.98 each as opposed to the usual price of $5.99 I snatched them up for research purposes.

These little gems are Certified Organic and contain 77% organic ingredients, are paraben, sodium laureth sulfate, and phthalate free. I found that the shampoo suds up nicely but I am not overly impressed scent, or lack thereof, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Although compared to some other brands I have tried with similar traits, I was a little “eh” about it all. Had I not gotten the shampoo and body wash on sale I may have skipped it but it was a good deal. Although most baby shampoo is a combination of both shampoo and body wash.. these are sold separately. I am pretty sure that using the shampoo AS a body wash works just as well. It foams up well and washes clean.

Overall, this is a nice product line, but I wasn’t totally enamored with it. It’s pluses are that it’s available in some Target stores (convenient) and comes in smaller sizes which are slightly more affordable. They have a full line available for baby and a line for Mommy too which is nice. And for those who are sick of the lavender smell, this is a good “unscented” option.
