Do you live a naturally inspired life? At the risk of sounding like the crazy hippie I have been swearing for years that I am not, I find a lot of our choices lately have been inspired by nature:
We've gotten rid of chemical fragrances in our home and replaced them with natural essential oils made from plants.
We opt out of chemical-laden ingredients as often as possible by choosing organic, and homegrown fruits, veggies and meat.
We've kicked phthalates (which also happen to be hormone disruptors) to the curb and replaced them with products that are either unscented or scented naturally without any of the ooky stuff.
Because I'm pretty into this "naturally inspired" business, Tom's of Maine reached out to me to ask if I would tell you about their new line of body washes and soaps powered by natural ingredients like lavender, coconut, shea butter and more.
Before I said yes, I did some homework because I never buy personal care products which contain parabens or phthalates - and I'm happy to tell you that Tom's of Maine products are FREE of both of those. You can read more about the things they commit to keep out of their products on the Tom’s of Maine Website.
Body Washes and Bar Soaps
Tom's of Maine has three options in their new line of body washes and bar soaps: Creamy Coconut, Lavender Tea Tree and Fragrance Free Sensitive (which is carried exclusively at Target).
The easy rinsing formula is mild and free of parabens, phthalates, artificial fragrances and sulfates. The creamy coconut body wash is my personal favorite. It uses virgin coconut oil and smells delightful - naturally! I do have an extra bottle of the fragrance free sensitive, though, and I am planning to experiment with adding essential oils to it to create my own custom scented body wash!
The bar soaps have gotten an upgrade and are now 25% larger than they used to be. The triple milled soaps are also wrapped in low-waste, recycled (and recyclable!) packaging. I love that they give you two options to choose from. And I love that you can pick up better-for-you body care right at Target (no trip across town to the "hippie store" required!).
