Instead Soft Cup

Instead Soft Cup

Dietary Needs:
None

Softcup is a natural alternative to the tampon. It's a durable, flexible, reusable cup that can be worn during your menstrual cycle for up to 12 hours. One reusable softcup can be used for an entire period. Softcup is made out of the same material that baby bottle nipples are made from. It contains no latex, silicone, phthalates, Bisphenol-a (BPA) nor dioxins. It contains no residual fibers, bleach, pesticides, carcinogens nor polycarbonates (PCBs). This definitely takes some time to get used to, however we believe it's worth a try. No environmental impact, and zero risk of TSS.

Baby Gourmet Simple Purees

Baby Gourmet Simple Purees

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Baby Gourmet Purees make quick meals and eating on-the-go so simple. They are loaded with organic nutrients and have tasty combinations that your little one will love. Simple pureés are a simple starting point when it comes to introducing solid foods to your baby. Once you introduce your little one to individual ingredients, move on to more interesting combinations. They actually taste every single batch and if they don't absolutely love it, they will toss it and start from scratch. These purees have no thickeners or fillers, no added sugar, no added salt, Kosher, BPA-free re-sealable packaging and are all USDA, FDA and organic certification. We love the juicy pear and garden greens combo because it's a naturally sweet way to get in organic pears, organic broccoli, and organic spinach into baby's diet. This will help develop their palate and taste for vegetables.

Alexia Sweet Potato Fries

Alexia Sweet Potato Fries

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Sweet potato fries are quickly gaining popularity and becoming more readily available, thanks to companies like Alexia. Sweet potatos are a complex carbohydrate that we often suggest because they nourish the pancreas, stimulating an increased production of pancreatic enzymes, while also giving you a sweet flavor that won't spike blood sugar. They are also high in fiber, protein, vitamins A and C, iron and calcium. Alexia's fries are a careful balance of sweet and savory flavor with a hint of sea salt. These are made with canola oil and cane sugar - which knocks down their rating to 3.5. We would love to see them not using any added sweeteners and chosing a healthier oil, like grapeseed or sunflower.  4g of sugar per serving which brings them down in our rating. However, compared to conventional white potato fries, they are a huge upgrade.

Eco Sunscreen

Eco Sunscreen

Dietary Needs:
None

We love Eco! We always recommend chemical-free, all-natural sunscreen and this hypoallergenic sunscreen actually absorbs into the skin easily and doesn't leave you looking chalky white. It is water-resistant and nourishing to the skin. This line is even biodegradable so it's earth friendly enough to not harm reefs and ocean life. This sunscreen is very affordable and competitive with conventional brands of sunscreen. There are no chemical UV-absorbers, synthetic preservatives, or titanium dioxide in any of the eco formulas. It is much safer than most sunscreens and free of Parabens, Phthalates, PEG’s (polyethylene glycols), Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol (all of the scary chemicals that you didn't even realize are in most conventional sunscreens.) This is a great sunscreen that works well for sensitive skin as well as for kids and babies. We love that it won’t clog your pores, and it’s great even under makeup. Non-nano zinc oxide is the active ingredient. Eco skin care’s commitment to consumers and to a healthier planet runs throughout the production process. Be sure to read the instructions regarding application frequency.
