It can be hard to find affordable, truly green personal care products. This was abundantly clear to me as I searched to add a little "new baby supplies" package to my baby registry. You know--butt cream, shampoo, lotion, etc. And I use the term "truly green" because the marketplace is awash in products that are marketed as environmentally friendly, but actually are not. And the more important consideration for me with these types of products is how it will impact my body and my tiny little baby's body. His/her skin is way more penetrable than mine and the toxins accumulate faster because of the smaller surface area of skin. Make sense?
Anyway, one good place to check out the products you are using is the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database.
So how does this all relate to Jessica Alba?
But back to Jessica and her laundry detergent. The other part of her company is cleaning products and bath and body care. It's a monthly delivery service. It's $36.00 plus $4.00 shipping. It comes with 5 core products the first month. After that, you can choose any 5 products from the line to come in your shipment. This is one of the things I like about it because I was concerned that I might not need another hand soap the next month. In that case I can choose sunscreen or body oil or something else instead and customize it.
She includes a kind of gimmicky price comparison on the website so I am ready to try these products out and do an actual price comparison to see if it's worth it. I'll let you know. If you care. Whoever you are. I'll still write it down for my own justification even if no one cares. Because I can.
