Little Twig and Eco Me Review

Little Twig and Eco Me are two wonderful green brands that I've recently discovered.  Little Twig boasts a great line of natural body and skincare products for the whole family, and Eco Me provides wonderful natural cleaning solutions.  When they asked me if I was interested in sampling their products, I said yes right away because I love sharing companies like these!

Little Twig's products are developed with the advice of pediatricians and real-life parents to ensure that they are creating the best and most effective product for your little ones (and for you, too!).  They provide families with products for a safe, natural bath time experience utilizing the most effective organic and botanical ingredients.  They're also PETA-certified as cruelty-free!

I received the Calming Lavender Baby Wash and Baby Lotion to try.  I love lavender for bath and shower time because it's so soothing, which also makes it the perfect scent for babies.  It helps promote relaxation, so using it during baby's bath time right before bed helps to encourage a good night's sleep.  The Baby Wash is made with an organic blend of essential oils and mild foam, with a formula of skin-softening vitamin E that's gentle enough for newborns.  It's also free from phthalates, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, and parabens.  The Baby Lotion nourishes dry and troubled skin with vitamin E, jojoba oil, and tea tree oil.  It is also free from phthalates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances, as well as mineral oils, nuts, soy, and wheat ingredients.

I loved using both of these products!  Even though they're targeted towards children, there's no reason why an adult can't use them as well.  I love that their formulas are so gentle while also being incredibly effective.  The lavender scent was so nice to breathe in during my showers, and it was even more comforting to apply the lotion before bed, too.  I think this set would be great for everyone, and if lavender isn't your thing, Little Twig has plenty more scents to choose from (plus an unscented line)!

Eco Me is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny, meaning they have no animal testing or bi-products during any stage of the product's creation (as you can see in the photo above).  They were founded in 2006 with the goal of removing unnecessary harmful chemicals from the home.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stated that the air in our homes is three to seven times more chemically polluted than the outdoor air, and the average home contains as many as 25 pounds of toxic cleaning products.  With Eco Me, you can effectively clean your home without having to worry about releasing pollutants into the air.

I received their Dish Soap in Lemon Fresh, which is naturally-sudsing and made with glycerin and natural plant extracts.  It's free from dyes, colorants, harsh preservatives, and sulfates.  What it does contain is natural ingredients and plant essential oils, and the bottle is PET#1 BPA-free.  Other ingredients include water, coconut-derived soap (a natural surfactant), sodium lauroyl lactylate (a natural, food-grade emulsifier), caprylyl capryl glucoside (a plant-based solubilizer), radish root for antimicrobial benefits, potassium sorbate (a food-grade preservative), and cymbopogon flexuosus oil (lemongrass oil).  This works incredibly well to clean up grease and other messes and has a great lemon scent.  It lathers up just as well as a non-natural soap, but it's so much better for you and your household because it's free from all of those bad chemicals that other cleaners have.

Bottom Line: If you're looking to green up your routine, adding Little Twig and Eco Me to your lineup of skincare and household cleaners is a great way to do so!  I loved all of the products I tried and would highly recommend them based on their efficacy and their ingredients.
