A review of the top 10 (most raved about) organic baby bath products – and how they can transform baby bath time

organic baby bath products

I remember bath time with baby being either incredibly stressful with a quick dip in the sink, or being a precious relaxing time of love and bonding. Of course this develops of time as your confidence of handling, washing and caring for this little human being you have made, grows.

So how can natural organic bath products transform your baby bath time, and turn it into a lovely relaxing experience for both you and baby?

Natural organic products tend to contain natural organic and relaxing scents and are kinder on babies skin and eyes, with many offering a ‘no tears’ formula. Nothing worse than trying to bathe a kicking and screaming upset baby. Making bath time almost spa like, with quiet time and relaxing music can also help baby have a great night sleep.

I remember my firstborn Jack not sleeping for weeks because he had a skin irritation, and it took three attempts of swapping and changing toiletries to finally find a wonderful organic range that made bath time and sleep time relaxed and successful, much to the gratefulness of my, then, sleep deprived mind and body.

My recommendation, go natural organic, make the time pleasurable and relaxing for both you and baby and bath time will become some of your favourite times right into early childhood especially when combined with bedtime stories. My two still (not so often) have a relaxing bath and relaxing music before bedtime. It works a treat and my daughter Jessica is usually asleep within five minute, when we have followed this routine.

Whilst I have not tried every product within this review, I have conducted intensive and extensive research into the top 6 products. Therefore, I will be using the opinions of others to formulate my reviews as well as my own personal use of the products of Burt’s Bees, Neal’s Yard Remedies and Weleda which I love.

Weleda Baby Calendula Shampoo and body wash. 200ml.

organic baby bath productsMy Score: 9/10

The company boasts that this wash gives you a two in one product, being shampoo and body wash. Weleda tell us that their product is made from bio-dynamically grown calendula flowers to help soothe the skin and scalp and apparently leaves skin feeling silky smooth.

  • Delicately cleans and softens baby’s hair and skin
  • All Natural and suitable for Vegans
  • Formulated from mild plant based cleaners
  • soap free and gentle on the eyes – ideal for sensitive skins

Does this product live up to the companies claims? Most who used this product reported that the smell of the product was lovely and that there were no tears, and it gave baby soft and shiny hair, it also helped reduce cradle cap. However there were a few who commented that it made cradle cap worse. Most said that it was amazing for sensitive skins in both babies and adults. Some did comment that you need a lot to get hair clean.

For the price this dual product offers great value for money!

Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic Baby Bath & Shampoo. 200ml

Neal’s yard Remedies tell us this baby bath and shampoo gently cleanses your baby’s sensitive skin and hair. It boasts an organic infusion of chamomile and lavender that are blended with mild vegetable based cleansers to clean delicate skin.

My Score: 9.5/10

They tell us that it is:organic baby bath products

  • Gently Cleansing
  • For delicate skin and hair
  • made with calming lavender
  • For babies over 3 months.
  • Organic

What do people think of this shampoo and baby bath?  There was no  negative feedback to this product other than the higher price tag. Most loved it for their little ones. Most said it was far less drying than other baby shampoos. Most commented on lots of bubbles and a lovely scent. It came highly recommended and one reviewer stated the product was worth the price, when you consider how long it lasts.

I love this product though and it’s iconic blue bottle design looks fantastic in the bathroom. However, the cap is sometimes frustrating, making it difficult to get product out when you are near the bottom, it is however easy enough to take the whole lid off and tip the shampoo onto your hand, however this could be frustrating whilst dealing with a baby!

If you love a honey smell then this shampoo will be perfect for you, if however you prefer a more relaxing experience, then one of the calendula or lavender formulations would suit you better.

In conclusion out of all the products this had the most critical mainly about the lack of bubble in the bubble bath. However, for the price most loved both the product and the smell. With this product it may be proof that you get what you pay for.

Final Thoughts and my favourites

My research has shown me that there is no shortage of excellent quality natural organic baby bath products out there. There is no need nowadays to bathe your precious, sensitive baby in harmful chemicals.

Yes many non organic products smell wonderful and yes many will be far cheaper than the ones I have reviewed here. However, the fragrance you smell in a lot of the non organic baby bath products are synthetic fragrances and they are filled with nasty chemicals.

If you could really see the ingredients and where they come from, you wouldn’t let any of those products near your precious baby. So my advice is go natural organic.

My favourite organic baby shampoo and body wash is Neal’s Yard remedies baby bath and shampoo, as my two children love it and they love their shampoos and conditions even now, and the blue bottles look absolutely fabulous in the bathroom!

  • With a history of eczema and dry skin in our family my wife and I used prescribed baby bathing and washing products for our first baby and while they certainly helped they didn’t really do the job when his skin flared up.

    We have another baby on the way and we are looking to find some suitable natural and organic bath products to use so I’m glad to have found your review. Is there any one of these ranges in particular that you would recommend using for new babies with a family history of eczema?

    • Hi David, thankyou for your comment and question. I would recommend The ‘My Little One, Joyful Bubbles bubble bath’ by Natralus. As it is made with only the gentlest natural organic ingredients. For an eczema prone skin you need a product with little fragrance and one that will provide moisture and not strip your baby’s delicate skin. 

      Natralus use moisture retaining antioxidents and more importantly for eczema prone skin, anti inflammatory ingredients. The calendula and aloe vera in this product should also help with the flare ups. My little boy also suffered from eczema when he was a baby.

       I tried product after product and most just irritated him further. It wasn’t until I switched to an organic less scented soothing bubble bath that we saw an improvement. The best advice I can give is with any product, do a small patch test of the product. mix a small amount in a bowl, and wipe onto your baby’s skin. wait 24 hours if all is well, then use for bathing. Again if there is any kind of irritation or flare up after bathing then always cease using. 

      Good luck and I hope this product helps your little boy, and all the best with the arrival of your second!

  • I do think that spending extra dollars  on organic products to keep our babies safer is definitely worth it, especially for those of us who have babies with very sensitive skin and prone to eczema.

    From the list you made above, I have personally had experience with two of them ; burt’s bee shampoo and body wash, and Earth friendly calming lavender bubble bath, of which I really loved Earth friendly lavender most.

    It does live up to expectation, its lavender smell and soothing nature is what made me choose it offer Burt’s bee.

    I am just learning about Neals and Weleda for the first time, but seeing they are top on your list, it must mean they are really very good.

    Cheers

    • Hi Queen, Than You so much for your really valuable comments, that I am sure will be of use to other readers. There is nothing better than a relaxing lavender smell, especially for baby’s night time routine! Yes I would recommend giving the others a try, as if you loved the Earth friendly products, i’m sure you will love them too!
