Dolphin Organics, Only and Always Natural

Dolphin-Baby-Organics_1

Many people are surprised to find out that although a label says “natural and organic” what it may really mean is “contains natural and organic ingredients along with a bunch of other crap”.

As a mom, I have often been frustrated by brands that CLAIM to be natural and organic. This is one of the reasons why I blog about organic beauty. I want to be able to celebrate companies that are actually making real organic and natural products with quality ingredients.

Dolphin Organics is one of these companies.

While at Blogher11 I had the pleasure of meeting the founders of Dolphin Organics. I fell in love with their story and bonded over our mutual understanding that what we put on our body is just as important as what we put in our body.

I was eager to take their products for a test spin – they kindly provided me with a few samples and an adorable onesize for Linden.

Here are the top ten things I like about Dolphin Organics:

  • The labels are straightforward, simple and easy to read so I know exactly what is in them!
  • Instead of being filled with water the first ingredient is ALOE. This provides a more concentrated and stable product.
  • The packaging is made with Post Consumer Recycled material.
  • The products are never tested on animals.
  • The shampoo and body wash actual has a nice lather which is often hard to find in a natural product.
  • The products are tear-free so it doesn’t bug our babies eyes.
  • The products are truly unscented.
  • The products are hypoallergenic.
  • The conditioner does a great job of detangling hair and doesn’t weigh down beautiful curls.
  • Great price point compared to other organic and natural products.
