All natural, organic skincare is a big deal in my house. Yes to Carrots fits the bill. The prices are right too. Products like diaper cream and body wash range from $5.99 to 7.99, which is comparable to non-organic items as well as organic lines. We tried numerous items in the Yes to Carrots baby care line and noticed the following.
Shampoo & Body Wash ($7.99)- available in original formula and fragrance free this combo of shampoo and body wash works well. I loved the easy pump and foam design as did my kids. What was different about the Yes to Carrots shampoo & body wash from other brands was that the foam was thicker, more dense and lasted longer. It didn't dissipate the minute I placed it on my child. I liked this a lot better. It is also tear free, which is a must in our house. While it cleaned and worked well on all my kids it wasn't ideal for my daughter with extremely curly hair. She needs a more moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to tame her locks.
Nourishing Baby Lotion ($7.99) - My oldest has very sensitive but dry skin. We have to be really careful about what goes on her body after baths. If not, we risk a pre-bedtime crying jag because the lotion "burns" and we have to wipe it all off. Yes to Carrots baby lotion is lightweight, petroleum, SLS and Sulfate free (just like all the other YtC products) and didn't bother her skin. It was more watery than I expected but a little goes a long way and it did work on her skin and I even used it on mine one day in a pinch and I have no complaints.
Soothing Diaper Cream ($7.99)- Made with aloe, zinc oxide (beware cloth diaper users) and organic pumpkin to hydrate the skin, the Yes to Carrots diaper cream is a good find. It is soft, soothing and not sticky. It protects baby's skin from moisture and it works fast. It is a nice alternative to many other diaper creams on the market. I would use it again. It makes a cute addition to a baby gift basket too. Available online in the US only.
Bubble Bath ($7.99)- I have three girls. We have a giant tub. Bubble baths are requested often. I'm reluctant though because bubble baths are not a girls best friend. However, the Yes to Carrots is so mild, natural and SLS free that I tend to give in more often now. The foaming, the bubbles on this product is phenomenal! The bubbles quickly rise up, last longer than any bubble bath I have ever used and my girls adore it. There is no paraben and it doesn't have a strong scent. One of the best perks beyond the bubbles is that it doesn't dry their skin. A definite five star product.
Yes to Carrots has a whole line of baby and adult skincare and haircare products available nationwide at your local drug and big box retailer or online. Plus a portion of the proceeds from all Yes to Carrots products goes to the Yes to Seed Fund, which gives kids access to the various ways we can have fun and engage with Mother Nature.
