Okay I really think I am in love with the TruKid line of natural organic products for kiddos. Yes, I have almost tried every product in their line-up now and it is indeed love at first use.
I first mentioned TruKid products in reference to their amazing safe sunscreen for kids called Sunny Days. It is was/is one of my top picks and now the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has given it the thumbs up, making it #2 on their list of safe sunscreens. It is free of chemical nasties, paraben free, and has certified organic ingredients. Oh and the SPF is 30+. It has a deliciously yummy smell too…very clean…perhaps from some of the ingredients like cucumber and green tea.
This week my daughter has been given a big thumbs up to the TruKid Cool Conditioner and the TruKid Dancing Detangler. She has long, waist length hair that has a tendency to get tangled..especially since she likes to “chew” on her hair…yuck. Anyway tangles and “rats” have always been an issue so I reluctantly used Johnson’s Kids No More Tangles in a Strawberry Sensations scent on her hair. Thanks to TruKid though we can ditch the Johnson’s product. Just look at an ingredient comparison:
Johnson’s Kids No More Tangles Strawberry Sensations: water, Behntrimonium Methosulfate, Sodium Benzoate, Dimethicone, Hydroxyethyl Behenamidopropyl Dimonium Chloride, Polysorbate 20, Cetearyl Alcohol, Trisiloxane, Citric Acid, Ceteth-10, Lareth-4, Fragrance
TruKid Dancing Detangler: water, aloe vera, glycerin, pro-vitamin B5, soy protein, polysorbate 20, extracts of arnica, lavender, chamomile, calendula, white tea, phenoxyethanol, ethylexylglycerin, essential oil blend.
The cool conditioner ingredients are pretty similar to the detangler.
The Dancing Detangler doesn’t detangle quite as well as Johnson’s I will be honest. But if I use the cool conditioner on her hair first there is no noticeable difference save a great reduction in chemicals on her head! I also noticed that the Dancing Detangler doesn’t leave her hair feeling sticky and greasy either. These are a couple products we feel good about having around the house. ;)
Made from natural ingredients and essential oils, TruKid products are safe, non-toxic and paraben, SLS and phthalate free. The line includes sunscreen, soaps, moisturizers, face and body wash, shampoos, lip balms and even an on-the-go Hero Stick to treat cuts and boo boos. We plan on highlighting some more of them real soon!
