Why It's Effective
Cleans the day’s dirt, food, paint and you name it off my kids without irritating their skin. Having one pump bottle for body and hair makes the job quick and easy.
Alaffia does not sting kids’ eyes. The formula is gentle, nourishing, and non-drying. Even hair comes out soft, unlike many wash/shampoo combos which perform well as a body wash but are too drying on hair.
Despite having no added fragrance, Alaffia’s natural ingredients impart a mild scent. The delightful scents occur naturally from ingredients like lavender oil and lemon extract in the lemon lavender scent (my favorite). Alaffia also makes a coconut chamomile scent which uses coconut extract and chamomile extract, and coconut strawberry which uses coconut extract and strawberry extract
Why It's Safe
With a short and simple ingredient list, Alaffia is free of the following toxic chemicals commonly found in kids’ soap:
Parabens – artificial preservatives associated with endocrine disruption, cancer, developmental and reproductive toxicity.
Phthalates- endocrine disruption, developmental and reproductive toxicity, and cancer. Studies link exposure to reduced testosterone and sperm quality in men and birth defects in baby boys.
PEGs (polyethylene glycols) – penetration enhancers that may be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane and ethylene oxide which are associated with reproductive, developmental, and endocrine effects, cancer, and DNA damage.
Fragrance - mix of fragrance and chemicals associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and potential effects on the reproductive system. Can contain unnamed toxic ingredients like phthalates which disrupt the endocrine system.
Aveeno Wash and Shampoo and Johnson & Johnson Head to Toe Wash contain PEGs and fragrance.
