Honest Orange Vanilla Shampoo - the shampoo and body wash that works great for babies and children. I would not use this on children under 6 months as it is not mild enough. I use this mostly as body wash as it is not great on long hair.

  • Not good as Shampoo for lots of hair
  • Not mild enough for newborns

The shampoo and body wash works great for babies and children. I would not use this on children under 6 months as it is not mild enough. I use this mostly as body wash as it is not great on long hair.

I also prefer after 2 years of age to use separate shampoo as it leaves the hair more shin and manageable.

The packaging for the smaller bottles tends to leak. I prefer the pump bottle, it uses less soap and much easier to use when holding a baby.

Medium-$10-15 Depending on size

Necessity Scale-5

Having a safe and healthy soap is must for any mom and child.

Siblings Friendly-Can engage together

Great product to be used for multiple age groups. The kids are not really engaging with soap, unless they already started washing on their own.

Durability/Multi Kid Survivor/Longevity Scale 1

This is an item that gets used and not designed to last. The 250 ml package lasts for about 1 month washing daily @2 kids. aprx 30-50 washes depending on the amount used. This amount is for body only, no hair.

Development Friendly-Helps with specific skills

This is more of a necessity item and only helps with learning to bath on their own when the child is ready.

Girl Friendly

When the child is still a baby it can be used for any gender but as the kids get older the packaging and smell are definitely girls oriented.
