Children have sensitive skin and deserve the cleanest body care from birth. Today I’m talking about green body care for kids + family. Products we use from head to toe that are organic, clean, and affordable. As parents, we all want to do right by our kids and keep their skin clean and healthy. The cloudiness of what is truly healthy and clean is where most parents diverge. Most of us assume anything sold in a store is safe for children, right? But is it? How many times have you seen recalls on baby products, cribs, medicines, and personal care products?
We all vote with our purchases. Do you like supporting billion dollar corporations who don’t give an ish about you? That prey on parents trying to care for their children? I honestly avoided posting on children’s care products because I don’t want to sound preachy. But I despise children’s companies that prey on unsuspecting parents. Companies with large advertising campaigns, that choose to use cheap, synthetic petrochemicals and carcinogens in their baby products. *cough, cough* Johnson & Johnson.
There are safer and more ethical companies to support.
My daughter Penny is 4 years old and her brother is 15 months. In all honesty, most kids, including mine, don’t need much to keep their skin clean and healthy. From time to time, I do feel the need to use moisturizers during dry weather and after a long bath. For those times, I use a few different brands and products. To keep this post concise, I’ll start with an affordable brand with lots of basics most families need. More posts on this topic will proceed. Do not fret my friends.
KOSMATOLOGY GREEN BODY CARE FOR KIDS + FAMILY
I began using Kosmatology 1 year ago. I was browsing the Choosy Chick website for green beauty Christmas gifts and decided to order myself a few products, as well as for gifts because they’re super affordable and have mini sizes available. Gifts for under $5? YES PLEASE!
You can buy Kosmatology at one of my favorite green beauty retailers The Choosy Chick. Check out her online store here. Be sure to visit the PROMOS tab on my website for all her Black Friday specials! I will be updating the PROMOS page daily throughout the end of the year.
The hand soaps are by far their star product. My favorite scent is Orange Sweetness. The sweet orange scent is perfection is that’s your jam. The foaming soaps are scented with high quality essential oils. You can tell by the scent profile of the scents and the fact they don’t give me headaches. Artificial scents are hormone disruptors and trigger headaches, nausea, and flu like symptoms when I’m around them for an extended amount of time.
Check out these phenomenal holiday limited edition scents! Kosmatology was kind enough to send me the holiday trio: Candy Cane Clean, Frosted Pine, and Holiday Spice. The foaming handsoaps are non-drying and perfect for tiny hands. We wash (or I hope you do ;)) so many times a day, invest in quality soaps. All soaps are $8.99 for 8.5 oz. You can buy them here.

The other products I recommend from their line are the lotion bars. You can pick up the minis here for $3.99 each. Kosmatology’s solid moisturizer contains organic ingredients such as shea butter and olive oil that effectively soothes dry skin conditions. Made without water, these are formulated for even the most sensitive and eczema prone skin. The lotion bar is in a deodorant twist up type of packaging. Makes applying it to wiggly babies very easy. I prefer the unscented for my kids because you don’t have to worry about scent or essential oil irritations. The scented varieties are scented with pure essential oils. Pick up a mini for $3.99 here.
“I began to research eczema and natural treatments and began designing what is now known as the Goody-Goody Grapefruit lotion bar. Lotion bars are free of preservatives which tend to irritate the already sensitive skin. What they do contain is shea butter and olive oil to moisturize and soothe the skin, candelilla wax to create a protective barrier and grapefruit peel essential oil to calm and sooth irritated skin. Since using this after her baths, she has been eczema free for the last five years.” –Janis, founder of Kosmatology
The Mint Your Feet soothing foot balm comes in a cool twist up stick applicator. You can apply it straight from the stick to your soles. Organic shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil to rehydrate and repair. Use at night and put socks on to lock in moisture overnight. For best results be sure to use a foot scrub or pumice stone to soften and exfoliate your feet beforehand. The scent is peppermint-eucalyptus, very holiday friendly! I gifted this to my friend last Christmas! Buy the footbalm for $14.99 here.
