Winter is my nemesis. Besides for the cold (I’m so over the cold) the dry air does a number on my daughter’s sensitive skin. Thankfully she isn’t as sensitive as she once was but I struggle to find products that don’t cause her to have a reaction yet still deliver a good amount of hydration without resorting to unpronounceable ingredient lists.
During my search Original Sprout kept popping back up over and over. Original Sprout founder, Inga Tritt, was a Master Stylist before she became a mom. After struggling to find products that didn’t tangle her newborn daughter’s hair or irritate her sensitive skin she created Original Sprout’s ultra-moisturizing natural baby bath and styling products.
Here’s a cute video of Inga’s daughter Maya, the inspiration behind Original Sprout, explaining the company’s history ::
Okay, now for my take on the Original Sprout products we’ve been trying out here with my two girls and myself. First up all the products from Original Sprout are ::
- Honey, clove and musk free
- Lavender and tea tree oil free
- Never tested on animals, in fact all products are vegan and lanolin used in their Baby hair Balm is from sheep wool the sheep are not harmed
- Full label disclosure for all their products worldwide (you get to see ALL ingredients in their labeling)
Miss M’s hair is notoriously difficult to deal with. Beautiful in all it’s voluminous glory, but hard to keep moisturized, expecially thorugh the winter! Can I tell you how much I LOVE the Tahitian Hair Oil? Her hair is so much more manageable since I’ve started using the Island Bliss Shampoo and Luscious Island Conditioner on her as well, but the Tahitian Hair Oil makes a night and day difference. We are never running out. Ever.
Another family favorite has been the Scrumptious Baby Creme. Even though my babies technically babies any more (they’re 4 & 6) this lotion makes their skin feel baby soft all over again. *sigh* Not at all greasy, the Scrumptious Baby Creme leaves their skin feeling velvety smooth and unlike other lotions we had tried this winter the Scrumptious Baby Creme keeps their skin hydrated so we don’t need to reapply multiple times per day.
