The Birth of Our Twins…Organically Grown’s Baby Lotion and Shampoo Have Arrived!

Two years ago, Organically Grown embarked on a mission to develop the perfect line of organic bath and body products for baby. Our products had to be not only “natural,” but certified USDA Organic, and manufactured in a QAI facility.  It seemed simple enough, but what a journey it has been! It took months of research and countless formulations to produce a premium organic product with the finest selection of ingredients that include shea butter, beeswax, aloe vera, green tea extract, cocoa butter, pomegranate extract and coconut oil, blending the calming scent of lavender and the sweetness of almond for the perfect subtle fragrance.

Our lotion had to be thick, yet easy to apply, without being clumpy or oily. I am happy to report that our lotion is luxurious and soothing, and dries quickly with no sticky residue. It will leave baby’s skin (and yours!) feeling smooth, soft, and silky. In the Organically Grown office, we are all wearing the lotion and recommend it to everyone!

I am proud to say that with our 2 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo and Body Wash, we have developed a groundbreaking shampoo that not only cleans baby’s hair, but conditions it as well…all that, in addition to being a body wash! We decided to take a leap of faith and produce a sulfate-free, no lather shampoo. We understood the risk we were taking because of the false perception that foaming equals cleaning. According to an article in the New York Times, chemical sulfates are “cheap lathering detergents long used in many shampoos (and household cleaners)” that can dry out hair and skin.

Our mission at Organically Grown is to provide you with superb quality products at a great value. Both our Baby Lotion and 2 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo and Body Wash come in a simple recyclable 8 oz bottle, free of wasteful packaging, at the unbeatable price of $14.95 each. Not only are our products made in the USA, they are also cruelty-free and not tested on animals (Except of course for our dog Carl, who got a bath in the shampoo!).

Organic is what’s best for baby, what’s best for you, and what’s best for the earth. I hope you love the latest additions to the Organically Grown family of products as much as I do.

Fish Light in Vermont

I agree with the President and the Republicans. I think nuclear energy is great.  The fish in Vermont glow in the dark now, so you can see them…Think of it, you don’t even need a rod, just scoop them up with a net.

No pun intended, I am just shedding light on the situation in Vermont: According to an article in Scientific American, scientists have recently found a fish containing a radioactive material that is known to cause bone cancer and leukemia, in the Connecticut River near Entergy’s Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant.

According to the article, “Strontium-90 and other human made radioactive materials come from the fairly constant release of very low quantities from medical and industrial users of radioactive materials, and from infrequent releases such as above-ground nuclear weapons testing in the 1950s, and the nuclear reactor accidents at Chernobyl in 1986 and Fukushima in 2011.”

It is tragic that a beautiful place like Vermont has to be tainted with the pollution stemming from poor policy decisions in Washington.

But at least now, when you go to your favorite sushi restaurant, think of the savings in energy…Who needs lights when you can see your dinner in the dark?

We had a stressful situation this past weekend in the Stein household. We had planned to go to the beach, but when we woke up on Sunday morning, it was raining in Los Angeles. We went into rainy day movie mode: Julia wanted to see Crazy Stupid Love, I wanted to see Captain America, and our houseguest Sophia wanted to see The Smurfs. Could we somehow make a compromise? Captain America for me, sushi for Julia, and Toys R Us for Sophia? Would they agree or hold to their principles? Or would we end up in three different theaters? Oh yeah…Did I mention that Sophia is only seven years old? So we couldn’t just risk dumping her at The Smurfs without legal repercussions. We were at an impasse when, all of a sudden, the sun shined through and we unanimously agreed to go to the beach…And this is where I suspect Congress is off to now as well!

Enjoy the beach, a lake, or a beautiful hike. It costs less than the admission to a movie. Have a great summer and stay tuned.
