looking for some good natural soap and shampoo

I have been looking up info on some of the ingredients in our baby soaps and was surprised to find how harmful they can be!

I would love some natural chemical free soaps to try with my girls. They are 5 months and 6 1/2 years. Something moisturizing or at least non drying and in a liquid would be good Perhaps a moisturizer to follow?
They also have lots of hair (even the little one!) so some shampoo and condtioner recomendations would be appreciated too. Oh and of course it would be great if it smelled good

I just feel like there has to be a safer alternative to the walmart stuff.

Thanks!

Arbonne has some awesome stuff! They have a whole baby line. You can check them out at www.arbonne.com. I'm a consultant if you want anything. I think I have a sample that you can try too if you want to pm me your address.

Very affordable, a lot to chose from. Great WAHM! I just ordered 60 bucks worth of stuff through a co op and then went back and ordered 40 more dollars worth of stuff.

I refuse to have Johnsons and Johnsons in my house after reading the ingredient label to only find the only thing I can pronounce in the list is WATER!

Re: looking for some good natural soap and shampoo

Sandy,
There was an article in last months Mothering issue (was it last month?) about commerical hygeine products and what is REALLY in them. There is a website - I forgot what it is now. But after seeing that and seeing what those ingredients yo ucant pronounce are I'm not taking any chances. KWIM?

We made the switch to natural, or mostly natural, can read what is in the ingredients and know what it is kinda stuff about 4 weeks ago. I threw all that other stuff out. Cept the shampoo for me and DH I cant find natural stuff if anyone can point me in that direction that would be fab!

it's definitley worth looking into!
