Green Beaver Review

I found the Green Beaver Company for the exact same reason the company was started. Baby Bird loves to play in the bath tub. She loves bubbles and pouring her water from cup to cup and in the process, ends up drinking a lot of it. I began to think that with all of the all-natural products I have been coming across in my reviews, there must be something out there like a safe bubble bath for children.

Green Beaver began when a husband and wife team noticed their son drinking the bath water as he played. They began to research various personal care products and found that there were just too many chemicals in them. They began to develop their own products using certified organic, chemical-free ingredients.

Today, they manufacture and sell personal care products including toothpaste, hair care, facial/lip, body, children and for my fellow Canadians — winter products including face and body creams, lip/cheek care and bath products.

We received the Junior Bubble Bath, two of their shampoos (Lavender and Apple Mint) and their Lip Shimmers in all of the fun colours to try out.

Baby Bird loves the bubble bath. She grabs for the bottle as the water is running and she helps me pour it in. As the water runs, the smell of berries fill the room. It is gentle on her skin and there are no worries now when she decides to take a sip from her cup as she’s playing.

I used both shampoos and they work really well. They suds up like a regular shampoo and the smell is natural and yummy. I tried the lavender on Baby Bird. She is okay with it as long as it doesn’t get into her eyes. The first night I used the lavender on her, she fell asleep so quickly and slept soundly through the night.

The lip balm is impressive. When I first looked at the ingredients I remembered thinking to myself that it seemed too simple and I wondered if it would compare to the other balms I’ve used in the past. It didn’t compare at all – it was way better because not only did it do the same job, but it did so with no added junk. The balm is made of various plant oils, beeswax, vitamin E and vanilla extract.

The lip shimmers are my favorite so far. They contain carrot and cranberry seed extracts and smell great. They go on smooth and are not dark. I don’t wear much make-up and prefer the natural look, but my natural look can be a little bland at times so it’s nice to have these on hand for touch ups. My favorite colours are the Passion, Lustre and Bordeaux.

A very interesting read on their website is their Ingredients to Avoid page. They do not use any of these ingredients in their products and they break down what is harmful in them and why you should avoid contact with those ingredients to begin with.

Green Beaver products are sold at many stores across Canada and can also be found in numerous online stores.

The Green Beaver Company has offered to give one This Bird’s Day reader a prize pack as a giveaway. This includes one Winter Lip Balm, one Junior Bubble Bath and the full set of Lip Shimmers (6 shimmers) (ARV$45.00).

    I am running low on my facial cleanser so I would go for the green tea grapefruit gel facial cleanser. I like the fact that aloe vera is used which is great for sensitive skin.
