    Another here who loves MooGoo I think I have most of their bath/shampoo/conditioner products... love them all.

    I also occassionally use the MiEssence bath products too... there's lots of discussion about them here in BB... the one called Sunflower (I think) was especially nice.

    Actually, before I found MooGoo, I used to use The Body Shop "cocoa butter" body wash. And the best thing for Pip's cradle cap for us was walnut shell body scrub, it stopped the cradle cap and kept it away.

    Alchemy is great (they don't make a specific baby wash, but their body washes are suitable for babies), Natural Instinct is a fantastic brand that is very reasonably priced, I use Jurlique myself but have not used their baby range, but now that my DS is a little older I occasionally use the body wash on him. I used to use MiEssence and really like some but not all of their products.

    I am currently using Moogoo products, and personally, I am not a huge fan, mostly because they use a synthetic fragrance which I find a little overwhelming (I prefer essential oils for scent).

    Suse: I wondered about MooGoo's fragrance... I assumed that they used synthetic fragrance because it was a safer ingredient than most essential oils... as lovely as essential oils are many are kinda harsh if over used....even tiny quantities. You'd think after going to all the effort to research the safety of their main ingredients that they wouldn't want to ruin their product by adding something harmful... but yeah, I know what you mean, the idea of using something synthetic does have an ick factor... compared to an essential oil... but is the reality different I wonder?

    A few of the products mentioned are not organic or fully organic. They may have one or two organic ingredients, but look for the Australian Certified Organic logo on it, to spot a genuine organic product. The Miessence range have this, and my vote is also for the Sunflower Body Wash as bubblebath and body wash. Too much chemical crap out there.

    I'm happy with the Aromababy range. Reason - mainly coz its quick & easy to purchase (available at our local pharmacy) The baby wash doesn't smell because it doesn't have any fragrance or essential oils. The quantity of essential oil needs to be really really tiny for use on babies, and isn't really recommended.

    I've used beauty & the bees soaps & belly balm, but haven't used anything on the kids.

    Synthetic fragrances can be an irritant, but as Bath said, so can essential oils. Altho the oils commonly used are lavender & chamomile which should be fairly safe if in very very small quantaties.

    I'm not that fussed whether they are organic or not, just so long as they are plant based ingredients and not petroleum based I'm happy

    ETA: Oh I meant to say I like Aromababy baby wash too coz there is no surfactant (not even plant-derived) so don't expect too much lather (people are obsessed with bubbles LOL). Surfactants are what dry the skin out, stripping it of natural oils.

    Bath, the moogoo fragrance was specifically chosen for its non-irritant properties (and it is not used in some products, eg: the MSM soothing cream), I just don't like the fragrance. I have a bit of olfactory sensitivity and find a lot of synthetic fragrances either make me sneeze or give me a bit of a headache.

    Exclamation Natural Products

    I had a problem with the bath cosmetics, that i bought from a hypermarket. I`m from Andorra, and my daughter Maria had an alergy inducted by a bath product. I went from town to town, and no one couldn`t help my little angel . I was lucky when a dr from Barcelona, Antonio Famagusta discover that the alergy is inducted by a parasite from a cosmetic company. I sue them .. but i-m to small for that mafia. Also Dr Famagusta helped me with Natural Bath Products
    Now I'm scared about any food, any cosmetics what should i do ?

    i love Gaia stuff. what annoys me is that at my safeway & coles they only stock the baby shampoo (also the moisturizer etc) and i have to go to a health shop if i want to buy the baby conditioner.

    We use mainly Miessence here - as it is certified organic (and I am a rep so get a discount - ), although I do love the Bottom Balm by Nature's Child.

    Pm me if your interested - I have a website and anyone can order from there at a discounted price.
