Since becoming a mama, I have become increasingly obsessive  conscientious about what products my family are using. Over the past several years, I have spent many an hour on EWG’s Skin Deep, typing in products and seeing their rating, a worthwhile but time-consuming process.

I have tried to simplify how I choose my products based on what I have learned through my research. I most often ask myself these questions:

Ella's Botanicals Giveaway!

Win this baby gift pack from Ella’s Botanicals!

Are all the ingredients listed? Do I know what they are? Can I pronounce them?

Ella’s Botanicals fits my criteria and then some! Here’s why:

Her products are locally made in Toronto, Canada.

They are Gluten Free, Biodegrabable, Cruelty Free, SLS Free, Paraben Free, Phthalate Free, Preservative Free, and 100% natural! No Synthetic perfumes but rather scented with pure Lavender essential oils!

Her Bottoms Up! bum balm is also cloth diaper safe which is key for this cloth diapering family!

Every ingredient is listed so users don’t need to worry what is going on their babe’s body or down the drain. Products include nourishing ingredients like calendula flowers, comfrey leaf,chickweed, pure lavender essential oil and shea butter. Designed with sensitive skin in mind, Ella’’s Botanicals luxurious baby products are receiving rave reviews from eczema sufferers, cloth diaper users, and the health-conscious.

I jumped at the chance to offer Ella’s Botanicals products through changeMatt!

Ella’s Botanicals provided me with a generous give-away pack to help celebrate the launch of changeMatt. It includes Bottoms Up! A cloth diaper safe bum balm in both travel and regular size. You also get two Bubblemania 3-in-1 Kids Bath Products in Tangerine & Lavendar scents.
