Vogue editors are showered in handbags. Food & Wine editors get drunk every night. And a DailyCandy Kids editor? She’s dripping in diaper cream samples.
So when a box of Live Clean Baby ecofriendly and hypoallergenic baby care products arrived at our office, we put it in our kids’ bathroom and waited for the current tester to dry up. Lucky us that happened sooner rather than later, because what we discovered has fast become part of the regular bath time routine.
Here’s what the Canadian-based Live Clean Baby line doesn’t have: sodium lauryl sulfate, diethanolamine, parabens, harsh preservatives, and phthalates (chemical yuck that makes the scent linger). Instead, it’s made with natural and gentle plant-based ingredients, leaving skin so soft and fragrant you’ll be tempted to buy every bottle on the shelf. Which, incidentally, one of our friends did.
Available at Walgreens stores nationwide and online at walgreens.com, $8-$13.
