Safest Baby Shampoos

KOKOPAX TOP PICK

Washing your baby is going to prove to be incredibly important, because not only are you going to want a nice and sweet-smelling baby to carry around, but it’s no secret that babies are kind of messy. You’re going to need a good shampoo that cuts through a good amount of puke, dirt, food, sticky stuff you can’t identify and aren’t sure where it even came from, probably drool, and a lot of other mess that you already know so we don’t have to mention.

You also want the best for your baby, and we know this. We don’t have to tell you not to throw your baby in the washing machine or the dishwasher, and we don’t have to tell you that your baby is more sensitive than you. His skin and scalp will probably be irritated by heavy scents and chemicals that are in the soaps that we all use as adults. Your little one does not need “smooth, silky, luxurious hair” like your own shampoo boasts on the label. He needs something much more gentle and much safer.

We spent 40 hours washing babies (or just researching and asking questions) to find what we think is the safest baby shampoo for you to use for your little one. After all of those squeaky clean babies we used for scientific research, we found that we think Babo Botanicals Moisturizing Baby Shampoo and Wash is the safest product you can buy to keep your little one clean and shiny.

Note: (You can put this in the intro or in a chart or a box or to the side or whatever) Also, it’s worth pointing out that even if your little one doesn’t have any hair, baby shampoo and body wash are the same. You do not need to buy different products to was your baby’s hair and body the way you do for yourself. We also want to point out that when it comes to safety, any product that boats to be “tear-free” typically (though not always) contains a chemical called 1, 4 dioxane which is an ether and formaldehyde-releasing chemical. While it is in a small dose and isn’t necessarily unsafe, it means that these shampoos don’t make the list of the safest. You should try to keep any soap out of your baby’s eyes at all times.

Kokopax Top Choice – Babo Botanicals Moisturizing Baby Shampoo and Wash

Babo Botanicals Moisturizing Baby Shampoo and Wash Review

This baby shampoo is natural, plant-based and made to cleanse, soothe and nourish your baby’s hair and skin. It is specifically made to be as safe as possible for your baby, which means that it is not a no-tear product, so it does not have any 1, 4 dioxane. It is made with oatmilk to give your baby a very comfortable and gentle bath, and we think that it is a great product to use on your child. If you want something that will keep your little one clean and comfortable, then this could be a great shampoo to put in your bathroom.

Not only will this shampoo leave your baby smelling nice and feeling even better, but it is very safe. It was given a #1 safety rating from Environmental Working Group, which is a government organization dedicated to testing products and giving information about what are in your products and how safe they are. You can learn more about EWG here: http://www.ewg.org/about-us.

Babo Botanicals Moisturizing Baby Shampoo is made with oatmilk to help comfort your baby’s skin. This ingredient helps with eczema, dry skin patches or any chafing your baby might have (from diapers, bedding, clothing, etc.). It is also made with calendula oil which will specifically help your little one’s scalp. It helps soothe cradle cap and dry patches on the head.

Babo Botanicals Moisturizing Baby Shampoo and Wash

Babo Botanicals Moisturizing Baby Shampoo is made with oatmilk to help comfort your baby’s skin. This ingredient helps with eczema, dry skin patches or any chafing your baby might have (from diapers, bedding, clothing, etc.).

One of the moms we talked to loves using this product on her son. She said,

“I use Babo Botanicals Moisturizing Baby Shampoo every time I give my son a bath. It is not uncommon for him to get skin irritation, because he is only 4 months old and still quite new to the world. This product leaves his skin nice and smooth, and it really helps with his itching and dryness. We saw a noticeable difference in his skin and hair when we switched to this brand, and we really love it in our home. Not to mention he always smells amazing after his bath, and it’s so nice to cuddle a nice-smelling baby instead of a stinky one!”

This shampoo is so nice and safe for your baby. It is made with a natural, Certified Organic (™ or something?) Nutri-Soothe Blend of vitamins and antioxidants in its composition. It combines chamomile, watercress, kudzu and calendula to help with making your baby’s skin and hair as clean as possible while putting the best stuff on it. This means that this product is using natural, safe ingredients to clean your baby instead of harsh chemicals that could cause even more irritation.

Another one of our mom’s had this to say about Babo Botanicals Moisturizing Baby Shampoo,

“It is always nice to have a product that is safe, cruelty-free (which is a HUGE deal for me. I try very hard not to buy anything that has been tested on animals), organic and so well backed up. But most importantly, it gets my baby clean. She comes out of her bath with shiny hair and soft skin, and she smells amazing. And it isn’t a harsh, perfume-y scent that fades after a few hours. I can smell the shampoo scent on her even the next day. It’s a great product, and we have been using it on our daughter for months. We will continue to buy this brand for as long as she needs baby shampoo.”

Some parents had some concerns about the shampoo. The biggest drawback for parents is that it is slightly more expensive than some other shampoos on the market. If you are looking for a bargain shampoo, then this might not be the one you are looking to buy. However, we believe that this shampoo is worth the price in that it is so incredibly safe for your baby and it will help with so many skin issues that most babies do deal with while developing.

A few other parents simply didn’t like the way the shampoo smells, and that is a personal preference. If you are not someone who likes the smell of the shampoo, then simply don’t buy it and pick something else. We won’t judge you for that (we won’t judge you for anything here!).

However, we think that this product goes above and beyond in the safety category, as well as other important categories when it comes to baby shampoo (like getting your baby squeaky clean!), and we think you would really love having Babo Botanicals Moisturizing Baby Shampoo in your home.

Natures Paradise Baby Organic Shampoo And Body Wash

Natures Paradise Baby Organic Shampoo And Body Wash Review

Your baby deserves a shampoo that gets him clean, smells amazing and feels great on his hair, scalp and body. We really think that Nature’s Paradise Baby Organic Shampoo delivers on that. It is rich in vitamins, nourishes and protects your baby’s skin, and it really is tough on getting your baby nice and clean. If you want a great shampoo that will work well on your baby or even any older children, then this could be a brand that you could trust for a long time.

Nature’s Paradise Baby Organic Shampoo is one of the safest shampoos and body washes, not just for infants but for all ages. If you want to use this product on your toddler or even on yourself, then you can feel free to go ahead! It is made with ingredients that are high in  naturally-found vitamins A, B, D and E. These are great for nourishing and protecting your baby’s skin and hair without any harsh chemicals. It is great for your little one if he has sensitive skin or even if he has any dry patches. This shampoo will really help with soothing him during bath time.

This product also contains raw apple cider vinegar. While this might sound like it would create an overwhelming smell, it doesn’t (in fact, you can’t smell the vinegar at all). It only has the best part of the ingredient which helps to nourish deep into your baby’s skin and hair and leave it soft, smooth, shiny and hydrated.

Natures Paradise Baby Organic Shampoo And Body Wash

Nature’s Paradise Baby Organic Shampoo is one of the safest shampoos and body washes, not just for infants but for all ages.

We had a mom tell us how much she loved this product for her little one,

“I use Nature’s Paradise Baby Organic Shampoo on my daughter. I started off buying the scent-free version when she was very young, but now that she’s 10 months old, I switched to the coconut scent, and I loved them both. Even with the coconut, the smell is never overpowering, and it leaves her smelling great and very clean. I am comforted by how natural the product is. I try to buy organic and natural as much as possible, and this shampoo is full of the best ingredients. I can see it in how smooth her skin is and how comfortable she is after the bath. It is a great shampoo, and I am so happy we use it.”

Not only is Nature’s Paradise Baby Organic Shampoo incredibly healthy and safe, but it’s also easy to use. It comes in a bottle that foams, so it is even more convenient for you to clean your baby because you never have to try to build up a lather. If you have a baby who is really fussy during bath time, then this might be a great solution for you. You can quickly get your baby in and out of the tub and minimize the fuss.

This shampoo is 100% chemical-free with no parabens, no phthalates, no preservatives, no artificial fragrances, cruelty-free and vegan approved. If you have any drawbacks about commercial shampoos or are unsure of how they stand on these, then you can always switch to this shampoo and feel secure in what you’re buying.

Another of our interviewed parents told us how he uses Nature’s Paradise Baby Organic Shampoo often,

“I use it on my baby, and sometimes I even use it on myself. I like the way that it cleans my child without anything harmful in the bottle, and I like the way it smells, so sometimes when I’m in a rush, I’ll just use it too. The foaming bottle is great for us, because my son really isn’t a fan of bath time. It cuts down on time, and it gets him out of the tub fast. I also have to say that I like how safe it is. No chemicals, organic, cruelty-free and full of vitamins. It’s a great shampoo.”

Are all of the ingredients organic?

Yes, the entire shampoo is made of organic ingredients.

What are the ingredients?

Organic chamomile Tea, Organic Coconut oil Soap, Organic Coconut Extract, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

What is the shelf-life?

Approximately one year

We think this is a great product that would be wonderful in your bathroom. It has a light smell (if you buy the coconut scent), it is organic, safe and will help get your baby in and out of the tub in fast time. We are really pleased to put Nature’s Paradise Baby Organic Shampoo on our list, and we think you’ll love using it even more!

Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Non-Scents Body Wash & Shampoo

Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Non-Scents Body Wash & Shampoo Review

Your baby deserves a soft, smooth bath that will leave him feeling comfortable and smelling pleasant afterwards. Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Shampoo is a castile-based soap, so it it made with natural olive oil which helps nourish and enrich your baby’s skin and hair to be as soft and clean as possible. This shampoo is natural, with no artificial scent added and is as gentle as can possibly be for your baby.

Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Shampoo is a great shampoo for your little one. It is made with olive oil which helps keep your baby’s skin and hair soft and hydrated. It also boasts honest labeling with absolutely no toxins, made without synthetic fragrances and contains no phthalates, parabens, Triclosan, petroleum products, mineral oils, or dyes. Instead it uses only the best ingredients, including calendula which helps with skin conditions like dry patches or irritation.

Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Non-Scents Body Wash & Shampoo

So if you want a baby shampoo that will help with any rashes, irritation or skin problems, then this is a wonderful option for you.

This shampoo was formulated by a nurse and herbalist who wanted to create a product that would be as safe as possible while still getting your baby clean and comfortable. This product not only helps keep your baby fresh and clean, but also promotes healing on her skin. So if you want a baby shampoo that will help with any rashes, irritation or skin problems, then this is a wonderful option for you.

We talked to a mom who loved using Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Shampoo. She told us,

“I really enjoy this shampoo for my baby boy. I use it on him every time he takes a bath, and it always works well. He comes out smelling clean and fresh, and he has visibly smooth and hydrated skin. His hair is always shiny and smells nice for a long time after he is cleaned. I think it is great to have a product that actually works. Not only that, I like that the shampoo is vegan and gluten-free. We don’t have any gluten allergies nor are we vegan, but it seems unnecessary to put anything otherwise in shampoo. Clean and simple is how I like my products, and this one doesn’t disappoint there.”

Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Shampoo was rated a 0 for toxins on EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. This means that it is certified and proven to be absolutely as safe as possible for your little one. You can use it often and feel comfortable that you’re putting the best and most natural stuff on your baby’s skin that you possibly can. If you really want a safe product that focuses on being natural, then Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Shampoo would be a great addition to your baby supplies.

Another Mom was really pleased with her purchase as well. She said,

“I always look for natural and cruelty-free products, and this one was right at the top of my list. It keeps my baby clean, and I am comfortable with using it. It is also great because it is castile soap-based, so I can use it for other things that I would normally use castile soap for, like making cleaning products. I just buy a big bottle, and I keep my whole house and life naturally clean and as toxin-free as possible. It’s a great baby shampoo. It keeps my little one safe, clean and his skin is always nice.”

Some parents did have some concerns about the product. They thought the bottle itself wasn’t a great pump bottle, and the shampoo did not foam as nicely as other bottles did. This was frustrating for some parents who would prefer a nice, foamy shampoo instead of having to work up a lather with the bottle and struggle to get the shampoo out. If your baby is fussy in the bath, then you might want to consider either a different shampoo or buying a different foaming bottle to transfer it to.

Other parents thought that the olive oil-based soap made their child’s skin a little bit drier than other soaps. This is not the case for every child, but it is best to try it first and see how your baby reacts to the ingredients in the shampoo.

Regardless, we think this is a great shampoo, and we think it really takes into consideration your baby’s and even your whole family’s safety. It is toxin-free, cruelty-free and leaves your baby clean, happy and soft. We fully believe that you would not be disappointed washing your baby with Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Shampoo.

Our Final Thoughts

Any shampoo that you buy for your baby is going to be one that you take careful consideration choosing, and there are a lot of great shampoos on the market. Look for something that doesn’t say “tear-free” to keep potentially harmful chemicals off of your baby’s skin, and be careful when using these shampoos around your baby’s eyes.

We still think that Babo Botanicals Moisturizing Baby Shampoo is the safest and best one on the market, but any of these shampoos would be a great, safe choice to use while getting your baby nice and clean!
