The Best Baby Soap & Baby Wash: Researched and Reviewed

Every day, our children are exposed to at least 27 different chemicals through personal care products. And most of these chemicals have not been tested for safety on children.

Think about when you wash your baby.

You put him in the tub and add some baby wash. For a start, baby skin is up to 30% thinner than adults’ skin. The water is warm, which opens up the pores of his already very thin skin. The heat also vaporises some of the chemicals, and your baby breathes them in. Your baby accidentally swallows some of the water, and you splash some in his eyes.

Baby wash might be a ‘rinse off’ product, but there are lots of opportunities for those chemicals to get into your baby’s delicate and developing body.

So what exactly are the ingredients in your baby’s bath products? Are they safe? How can you tell?

Ingredients in baby soap have been linked to endocrine disruption; skin allergies; and even heightened risks of cancer. And although some of the big guys have cleaned up their acts over the last few years, there are still plenty of irritating and even toxic ingredients in some brands of baby wash.

Many of these big companies still don’t list the ingredients on their websites. If you shop online, you can’t tell what’s in the packs. You physically have to go to supermarket, and stand there in the aisle searching up ingredients on your phone. Take your baby shopping with you while checking on ingredients? Good luck with that!

It’s easy to understand why so many of us just grab a pretty looking pack, only to get it home and find that not all the ingredients are great.

So that’s where Hello Charlie comes in. I’ve been to the supermarket, taken photos of all the products, then brought them home and looked up all the ingredients for you. Read on and find out which baby soaps and washes get the Hello Charlie recommendation, and which ones you (and your baby!) should avoid.

I’ve researched 59 different baby soaps and baby washes ! I didn’t do all of the mainstream ones, because I know that they’re going to be mostly the same. But I did try to do as many ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ ones as possible. The list of baby soaps that I’ve reviewed are all in alphabetical order, below.

The Best Laundry Detergents: Researched and Reviewed

There’s nothing as nice as the smell of freshly washed clothes, is there? Unfortunately, your laundry detergent could be having a harmful effect both on your family and on the environment.

That fresh laundry smell can come at a high cost. Laundry fragrances are designed to stay in your clothes, meaning that your skin and lungs are constantly exposed to them. It’s the same with other toxic ingredients used in laundry detergents. They wouldn’t be so bad if it was just a one time exposure, but some of these ingredients are designed to stick to your clothing, which means that you can’t get away from them.

Manufacturers aren’t required to list the specific ingredients of their products, because they are deemed to be commercially sensitive. This makes it even harder for consumers who are trying to make informed decisions about the products they use for their families.

So what’s the answer?

Do you choose a ‘sensitive’ formula? Unfortunately, that’s no guarantee of a non toxic laundry detergent. You can’t trust the big name brands with their claims of ‘sensitive’ formulas. You have to get to the bottom of each and every ingredient.

And it’s not just about our health. Laundry products end up in our waterways, so we have to think of the environment when we’re choosing products, too. So many ingredients are toxic to aquatic life, not biodegradable (so they never break down and stay in our waterways and oceans), or cause algal buildup which kills fish and plants.

So how do you wade through the greenwash and misinformation to find the best laundry products for your family? The ones which are truly non toxic for you and the environment?

Well, that’s where I come in. I’ve spent months finding all the ingredients in laundry detergents, researching them and reviewing them so that I can recommend nothing but the best to you.

There are heaps of laundry detergents available in Australia. I’ve researched 50 different products from 37 different brands! I didn’t do all of the mainstream ones, because I know that they’re going to be mostly the same. But I did try to do as many ‘natural’ and ‘sensitive’ ones as possible.

The Best Makeup Remover Wipes: Researched and Reviewed

Makeup remover wipes sound like the best beauty product ever, right? Just wipe off the day’s makeup, dirt and sweat and tumble into bed.

Unfortunately, if that’s what you’re doing, you might not be doing your skin any favours. Some makeup remover wipes use harsh ingredients that you really don’t want staying on your skin.

So how do you wade through the greenwash and misinformation to find out which are the best makeup remover wipes? Not the ones that say ‘all natural’ and then turn out to be made with synthetic and toxic ingredients, but the ones which are truly non toxic?

Well, that’s where I come in. I’ve spent months finding all the ingredients in face wipes, researching them and reviewing them so that I can recommend nothing but the best to you.

There are so many makeup remover wipes available in Australia. I’ve researched 56 different products from 43 different brands! With some of them, you just know they’re going to be chock full of toxic ingredients, so I skipped most of them. I’ve tried to include all the ‘natural’ ones, so that I can help you work through the greenwash. And I included a few mainstream ones, too, so that you can compare! The ones that I’ve reviewed are all in alphabetical order, below.
