I am a huge fan of organic skincare for H – I mean this child has a pretty amazing selection of skincare because I like to make sure I am using gentle products on his skin. I have realised after 2 years that some products are worth repurchasing and some just aren’t.
Childs Farm is the brain child of Joanna Jensen, a mum of 2 who tried and failed to find a natural product to deal with her daughters’ fine hair. She worked with an illustrator, Emma McCall (hence the pretty artwork on the bottles) to create Childs Farm.
I have used various products from the range (bubble bath and the hair and body wash) and it is a big thumbs up from me…
Why is this range good? Well it’s pretty vast (there’s a lot of products for hair, shampoo and conditioners which isn’t relevant to Harrison yet as I use a 2-in-1 wash most of the time) so there’s lots to choose from. It’s free from mineral oil, SLS, artificial colours and parabens. They smell nice and fruity fresh, without being artificial, overpowering or irritating the skin (I love a good smelling kid!).
Unlike some of the other brands I like for H (like L’Occitaine or Melvita) it’s accessible too – it’s stocked in Boots, Waitrose and John Lewis’ so anyone can get their hands on it. It’s priced well, most products are under £5 so again, it’s much cheaper than some of the brands I like, i.e. Weleda.
I have tried the Bubble Bath – it’s great for creating a bath full of bubbles for him to play with without any horrible soapy residue. I have used the 2 in 1 Wash too and it smells gorgeous (orangey) and leaves no residue but works well at removing hair wax from H’s hair. It’s also not too foamy which I dislike.
I will be buying more from Child’s Farm – my next purchase is the 3-in-1 Swim Wash for H after his swimming classes to get the chlorine off his skin.
The cute (and noisy!) website is here.
