Earth Friendly Baby - Review

We've been trying out some Earth Friendly Baby products in the last couple of weeks at bath time. If you've not heard of Earth Friendly Baby then I can tell you that they are an eco-friendly range of baby skincare products. Earth Friendly Baby products aim to enrich parent and baby well being through natural personal care.  The brand philosophy encapsulates sustainability and living in balance with nature.  The products do not contain animal-derived ingredients or use animal testing and we strive to share these values by making natural products affordable and accessible to as many people as possible.

We were sent the Earth Friendly Baby Organic Lavender Shampoo and Body wash (RRP £4.08) and the Earth Friendly Baby Organic Lavender Bubble Bath (RRP £6.12).

I really do like these products, they smell lovely - we were sent the Lavender version (I had hoped for mandarin) which is the scent that's supposed to promote sleep. After use the kids both smell incredible. The bubble bath produces lots of bubbles - very important to my kids for making beards obvsiously.  I like the packaging and branding of the products - it's all very simple which seems in keeping with the nature of the products. My kids don't tend to have sensitive skin but it is nice to know that the products you're putting on their skin contain the best ingredients.

I have a couple of gripes though. The top of the body wash bottle has a sensible cap that pops up so you can squirt out what you need. However the lid for the bubble bath is a screw top and so can be completely removed. I would have preferred it if the bubble bath had the same style lid as the body wash. It feels safer to me in case the children get hold of it and also the bubble bath is actually quite runny  - not thick like most bubble bath so a squirty lid may also stop you from using too much. Which brings me to my next point....

I know that these products are organic, and they aren't tested on animals but they seem over priced for the quantity you get. That said in terms of the bubble bath a little does go a long way. Not quite true of the body wash (particularly if my OH is squirting it!), which I can see disappearing quite quickly. All in all I don't think we will be changing from our current brand of baby skincare products but it was nice to give Earth Friendly Baby a try as I'd often seen it in Boots.

 All of Earth Friendly products are hypoallergenic, plant-derived, biodegradable, and free from artificial colouring, synthetic fragrance, SLS and parabens. Ingredients are organic where possible and not tested on animals. 

Earth Friendly Baby is available from Waitrose, Ocado, John Lewis, Boots, Sainsburys and wholefood stores.


  1. I have seen this about but have not tried them yet. Will try the bubble bath soon. I've got to have a selection as my son loves his bubble baths.

  2. I do buy these, especially the handwash, but agree they are quite expensive. xx

  3. We were disappointed to hear that you were not entirely satisfied with your Earth Friendly Baby Product. We take comments from members of the public very seriously indeed and your input can help us develop new and existing products. You may be interested to hear that we are changing the caps on Earth Friendly Baby bubble bath to be the same as those on our shampoo and body wash, and these should be available from January onwards. We will send you a sample as soon as we have them. Thanks again for your comments.

  4. hi Diane, I don't think you need to be disappointed as it sounds like you're addressing one of my points with the lid which is great! Also the affordability point is applicable to us but may not be to lots of other people. I say in my review that the kids smell great and there are lots of bubbles, and that I like the branding and packaging, so really nothing to be worried about and I do appreciate that high quality goods come at high quality prices. If we see it in Boots on offer then lets just say it would find it's way into my basket. thanks for commenting and letting us know about the cap situation :)

  5. Hi, Sharon

    Thank you for your kind comments.

    Sorry it has been a little while, but I am pleased to let you know that we have now received our repackaged bubble baths. Please could you send me your postal address offline ( and I will arrange to have some sent off to you ?

  6. I have used this product for the whole 5 and a half months of my daughters life. I have used it because I have sensitive skin and was concerned that my daughter would have it also. I used to swear by this product until tonight. Her dad gave her a bath and as soon as it touched her face she screamed in pain and came up in a rash that looked as though she had been burnt. It took half an hour for it to begin to fade. Im gutted as I loved this product and now my baby is suffering
