Rainbow Research Bath & Body Review & Giveaway

by Mama Chocolate on May 18, 2012

*review by Katelyn F.

The more I learn about the chemicals in our soaps, the less inclined I am to pick up the popular brands in the store. Our skin is an amazing organ, and it absorbs way more than we know. So all those unpronounceable chemicals? Yep, they get absorbed, too.

Rainbow Research has been making natural products for over 30 years, and I was excited for the opportunity to review some children’s soap!

My children’s skin is especially important to me. The first thing I wanted to try was the Sweet Dreams Bubble Bath (we always seem to be taking baths in the evening), and the Baby Oh Baby Body Wash.


I was interested to see if the bubble bath would be very…bubbly. This picture was taken toward the end of their bath, and there were still plenty of bubbles! And the body-wash smelled, well, gentle. It didn’t leave a sharp, chemically smell, and left their skin soft instead of drying it out.

The Sweet Dreams bubble bath is made with organic herbs, especially formulated for a relaxing, pre-bedtime bath that will ease your little one’s transition to bed.

The last thing they sent was liquid soap for kids. I had an unusual opportunity to test this one out! My 18 month old was (I thought) happily looking at books in the corner, when she turned around and I saw a black marker in her hand. She’d drawn on her hands, face, head… you name it.

It was hard to get her to hold still and pose for the camera, so you can’t see the worst of it. But, with a little of this soap and some gentle scrubbing, it all came right off! Whew! I was so relieved that it all came off that I forgot to take an ‘after’ picture.

I also reviewed the Lavender Chamomile Bubble Bath, which is safe for both adults and children. You’ll have to forgive me not having a picture of me using the lavender bubble bath! ;-) But rest assured it smells lovely and I’m looking forward to savoring the whole bottle bit by bit!

Rainbow Research sets a high standard for themselves and their quality products:

Rainbow Research was founded in 1976. Our philosophy is simple – use the best natural ingredients available, avoid unnecessary chemicals, and tell the truth. Since the beginning, we have chosen not to test our products on animals. Rainbow products are made in small batches to keep quality high. We guarantee our products 100%.

Our following has grown through the years and we now sell our products to health food stores, massage therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, salons, and consumers throughout the world

We urge you to support those groups who are promoting both animal and human rights throughout the world.

 

Rainbow Research is generously giving one lucky Mama Chocolate reader $25 (with free shipping!) to spend on their website!
