Pineapple Heads – Naturally Good Stuff for Your Kids

November 20, 2015

Natural products for kids

The gorgeous team at Pineapple Heads recently asked me (and my kids!) to trial some of their all natural hair & bath products for kids.

Made in New Zealand by real life Mums, for kids.  The products pride themselves on no nasty stuff, using all natural ingredients & EcoCert approved natural scents.  That means no silicones, PEGS, petrochemicals, parabens, artificial colours, harsh surfactants & no animal testing.

I’m all for making our lives more sustainable & cutting out as many harsh chemicals & additives from our day to day living as possible  so I was chuffed to give these products a go.

I let my kids open the parcel when it arrived in the mail, straight away they loved the Pineapple Heads packaging!

Each product has it’s own unique Pineapple Head character on the bottle, which meant even 4 year old D-Man learnt which product was which by sight alone, without relying on big sis Oaks to read the label to him each time he wanted to use them – great idea!

We received the Jimmy Shampoo & his partner in hair care Peaches Conditioner – this couple particularly appealed to my two kids, they loved that there was a boy & girl on the bottles.

I loved the squeeze top lid which meant not so much wastage (Oaks washes her own hair these days, she is 8 years old people!).

Both these products smell divine – pineapple for the shampoo & lemon sorbet (Oak’s description!) for the conditioner. So age appropriate! I prefer these scents so much more than the flowery fragrances most common brands use.  Also, PEG free, no parabens or silicones which means they are both gentle & non irritating.

We took the Pippy Detangler away with us on our family holiday to Thailand where it got a work out each day after the ocean & pool.  It worked a treat on Oak’s hair & left it shiny & glossy.  Bonus, no silicones & harsh ingredients.

The D-Man loves a bit of product in his hair each day, so he adored the Frankie Hair Gel, which he assumed had been made just for him!  A gorgeous lime scent & washes out easily.  Best of all, no acrylates or nylons.

The kids loved, loved, loved the smell of the Devo Bodywash – a delicious summery, fruity fragrance with no synthetic colours.  It’s a staple in our shower from now on.

My favourite of the lot was the Moe Sleepyhead Bubble Bath.  It reminded me of bath time when the kids were bubs.  Lavender & soothing, no tetrasodium EDTA, but lots of bubbles.

I would encourage you to seek out products that eliminate the use of harmful chemicals & support brands like Pineapple Heads.  I guarantee both you & the kids will love these products – fun, fruity & all natural.

If you’re interested in what is currently found in most children’s personal care products & what ISN’T in Pineapple Heads, this is a great start.

Let me know if you’ve tried Pineapple Heads & what you thought!  Do you have a favourite natural personal care product either for your kids or yourself?  We’d love your thoughts!
