I bought this simple baby moisturising shampoo to try on my girls, attracted by the me to you bear on the packaging and the added bonus of its no tears formula. We previously used Johnson's baby shampoo but I always think it looks really yellow so wanted to look for something with less added colour to it.
The shampoo is clear in colour and has no perfume or colour to it. It has natural chamomile ingredients in it plus lavender oil so it's a great relaxing before bedtime activity to have a bit of fun and play in the bath before a story and wind down. The shampoo is also for me to use in between others as I like how soft baby shampoo tends to make my hair.
This shampoo works just fine, it doesn't over lather and it gets hair clean. The girls, aged 1 and 3 now are happy to have this used on their hair and it is easy to rinse out which is important with little kids. The fomula seems just right and I only need a tiny amount for their soft and fair hair. Afterwards, we find the hair easy to manage and it smells clean smelling but not fragranced so that's good really.
When I used this shampoo, I did actually get a bit in my mouth by accident, undiluted too. It was a bit soapy but not terribly so and obviously whilst you're not supposed to ingest it, I found it rinsed out easily! Note to self, do not repeat that experience again!!!
I found this in Poundland so it was just a quid for a 300ml bottle. What an amazing bargain! I suppose they were changing something on the packaging and cleared the stock through this chain store, well that's my guess anyway!
Great price, great product, cute bear on the packaging, it's all a winning formula. I am happy to recommend this for kids and adults and will definitely repurchase it again in the future especially at that price. I have bought a few items from this range anyway, especially when I have been sent vouchers for it from Boots so it's been one I've overally been very happy with. I love this baby shampoo and feel it gets the balance right in terms of being kind to young skin and providing enough cleaning power.
Since my 2 year old daughter was born (and had a little hair!) we have used Johnson's baby shampoo, feeling it was really the only thing that should be used, as recommended by Health visitors etc. However, about a month ago, I noticed that my daughter's scalp was very very dry and therefore quite flaky. She certainly had some cradle cap when she was young but thankfully she always had enough hair to disguise it and it never bothered her. Now, that her hair is longer, any dryness in the scalp, as there was earlier in the month, was particularly noticeable, especially when I tied her hair up. I asked in my local Boots about other products, but there seemed to be very few that were available without prescription and were suitable for under 3's. I was recommended to contact the doctor, which I planned to do that week, however, my Mum suggested I try a moisturising shampoo and it was her that pointed out this Simple moisturising shampoo for baby, which I actually picked up for £1 in a local discount shop.
I have used plenty of products from the Simple range over the years myself and always been happy as my skin can be sensitive, so I knew that this product should be good quality. The bottle has the little tatty teddy logo, which is quite appealing and cute looking. This shampoo claims to have 'natural chamomile goodness' to soothe baby's 'delicate skin'. It also claims to 'gently cleanse' and has a 'no tears' formula. LIke all Simple products, there is no perfume and no colours in this product.
This shampoo is completely clear and there is obviously no real scent to the product, however it still smells pleasant. IT found it easy to lather this shampoo up in my daughter's hair, as well as easy to rinse out. THe real test for me however was whether this would help deal with the dryness, and yes it did. Even after the first wash, I noticed a massive difference in my daughter's scalp. Two thirds of the flakiness and dryness had gone, and by the second and third wash, it had mostly vanished. It is now generally clear so the moisturising qualities must have helped work to moisten the scalp and get rid of the flakiness. I ended up not going to the doctor as it cleared it so well, and so far so good, and I'm afraid I stopped using Johnsons baby shampoo altogether.
All in all, this has been another brilliant product from Simple and works a treat on my toddlers hair. I wouldn't use anything else now!
This is the Simple Baby Moisturising Shampoo. My mother in law bought it for my daughters as it was on offer somewhere.
== Packaging ==
It is a white plastic 300 ml bottle with a flip top lid. On the front of the bottle it has a picture of Tiny Tatty Teddy a me to you bear, and some information about the product. It tells you that it gently cleanses with no tears. It has the standard Simple logo in green lettering and the moisturising shampoo is in orange lettering which makes it stand out against the white background.
== Ingredients ==
On the back of the bottle it lists the ingredients which are: Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Glycerin, Cocoamphodiacetate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Glyceryl Laurate, Panthenol, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Citric Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, Sodium Hydoxide, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil, Pantolactone, Abthemis Nobills Oil.
== How to use ==
It is straightforward to use, the directions are printed on to the back of the bottle: Apply a small amount onto your baby's wet hair. Massage gently into a lather. Rinse thoroughly.
I have used it on both my daughters hair, they are 4 years old and 1 years old. The liquid is clear and lathers up well. It smells pleasantly of chamomile and I find a little goes along way. I have used it on my own hair when running low on other shampoos and find it leaves me hair feeling squeaky clean and soft.
== Product Claims ==
- No tears formula - Soap free - Hypoallergenic - Suitable even for newborn babies - Dermatologically and Paediatrician tested and approved -pH balanced
Simple skincare contains no animal derived ingredients.
== Price and Availability ==

== Overall Summary ==
Overall I like this shampoo and would buy it again. A bottle lasts a long time and leaves my daughters hair smelling and feeling clean and fresh and helps to detangle it too. They also like the teddy on the bottle!
Thanks for reading.
My daughter is now 2 years old and of mixed heritage (caribbean-vietnamese) and so as one can imagine, washing her hair sure is a handful! I was always reluctant to try new products on the shelves as she has quite thick, curly hair and didn't think the simple shampoo would suffice to do the job, but at a bargain price of 99p and as I was currently using the all in one simple baby bodywash, one day I decided to stick to the same brand and give it a try.
The bottle is white, with orange design. The shampoo comes out in a clear liquid form, and I usually just squeeze a small amount into the palm of my wet hands and apply to her hair and it lathers really quickly. I would definitely suggest to others to only use a small amount as once I poured out a lot and it took me absolutely age to rinse all the bubbles out! It doesn't have a strong smell, (as far as I have smelt) but this could be as I then use a hair lotion once its dry which has a strong smell. I would recommend this shampoo to those who have young children as I have not had any problems with it :)
My daughter's hair is rather fine and it does look greasy fairly easily so when I buy shampoos for her I try to stick with something that is gentle yet effective. Conditioners tend to weigh her hair down and they don't help with the greasiness so I can't even buy the 2 in 1 products for her which makes finding an extra special shampoo that doesn't leave lots of tats nearly impossible.
I noticed the simple baby shampoo in the pound shop a few months back and I was immediately attracted to it as it had a picture of a me to you bear on the front and I adore them. My daughter has seen my different collectables around the house and even she has developed a nice interest in tatty teddy so I decided to give this a go and I was hopeful since the product was baby shampoo I was certain it would be mild and gentle.
Simple baby shampoo comes in a 300ml white bottle. My bottle displays the simple logo and some other useful information. It displays a picture of tatty teddy on the front on a fluffy towel and it looks like a typical baby product. Plain and simple. Some of the benefits on the bottle advise:
Natural chamomile goodness
Soothes delicate skin
No tears formula
Contains no perfume
Contain skin loving nutrients of lavender oil and glycerine
Suitable from birth
The shampoo is clear in colour and has a rather runny consistency. The first thing you notice about the scent is the lovely soothing lavender, it is very relaxing. This shampoo goes a long way so only a small amount is needed on the hair to create a big lather. I really like how gentle the shampoo is with its no tears formula as you don't have to be super careful and the shampoo won't irritate the eyes at all and it makes shampooing for my daughter easier and more comfortable.
The shampoo is easily rinsed out of the hair with barely any effort at all and although the hair is tatty and I still have to use my daughters detangling spray, I must admit it isn't as tatty as it was when using other products such as L'Oreal.
This shampoo does exactly what it says on the bottle and it is indeed very gentle and I feel like my daughter's hair has had a very good wash when using this product and her hair definitely stays cleaner for longer. I would definitely recommend this shampoo for all ages.
I received a couple of bottles of Simple Baby moisturising shampoo as a gift from my sister in law some time ago, when my son was born. As you tend to be given lots of bottles of baby products when you give birth, it can be a while before you manage to get through all of the bottles of shampoo, bubble bath and lotion, so although I have owned this product for a while, I have only recently started using it again, even though I don't have any babies in the house now, although it was a product that I used regularly when the kids were very small.
The premise behind this product is really good. Simple are a brand that like to keep their products as safe as possible for the skin, by eliminating all unnecessary ingredients that may irritate the skin. This shampoo is 100% perfume and colour free, as well as being Paediatrician and Dermatologist approved, making it a safer option for young babies' skin on the scalp.
This is a product that I was happy to use, even when my son was very tiny, and it never caused any kind of reaction on his skin. Using any new product on a baby is always a risk, as their skin is so sensitive, and eczema and allergies are quite prevalent in our family, so this was an extra worry, but I have never had any problems with the Simple brand in general, so it is a brand I trust to do right by my kids skin.
The shampoo comes in a plain white 250ml bottle, which again, reflects the pure unadulterated nature of the product within. The "lid" is on the bottom of the bottle, and I generally prefer this style of bottle, because it means you can use the very last drop of product as gravity does its work! To open the bottle, you simply flip it open, which is very easy to do, a bonus when your hands are wet! The hole in the bottom is quite big, but the design is clever, as the hole has a one way valve, in the form of a plastic covering, which means that the shampoo can't leak out and will not come out of the bottle until it is squeezed. This is a fantastic idea, and means that the nozzle does not get all gunged up or crystalized, like many shampoo bottles.
A light squeeze of the bottle dispensed an appropriately sized blob of clear gel into your hand. The shampoo is not at all sticky or gooey, and is quite watery and runny in texture. It has no scent and is completely clear, with no colour. The shampoo does not produce an abundant lather, and this is a benefit when bathing a baby, as you want to get the shampooing done as quickly as possible, so the baby doesn't get too cold or uncomfortable. Only a small amount is needed, and it rindes away very easily, leaving no traces of residue, leaving the hair squeaky clean and healthy looking, with no traces of baby food, vomit or other sticky stuff that gunks up babies hair!
As I mentioned at the start of the review, I do use this shampoo on my own hair, and for me, it is an exceptionally gentle shampoo, perfect for me as I get a very dry, sensitive scalp, being prone to eczema. The only letdown for me, is that, as my hair is very long, I don't think that it does a particularly good job at detangling the hair, or making it look shiny, but as i use a seperate conditioner, this is not really an issue for me. We have also used this as a shower gel and body wash, and it does a really good job at cleaning the skin, although obviously, if you like scented products, this one isn't for you!
The shampoo claims to be "no tears", but I have never deliberately put it in the kid's eyes, or my own, to test whether this claim is true! The shampoo is also PH balanced. Looking at the list of ingredients, there is only one that causes me concern, SLS, which is a surfactant, that can cause irritation in some people. Saying that, I have not personally had any problems with this product, but I was a bit shocked to see it contained SLS, and if I had known this when my son was a baby, I may not have used it on him, for this reason.
The plastic bottle is recycleable where facilities exist.
In conclusion, I think this is one of the most gentle baby shampoos on the market, and perfect for sensitive or irritated skin. It cleans well, but don't expect other benefits such as detangling or glossy hair. In my opinion, the Asda own brand baby shampoo does a better job at making the hair look good, but obviously contains colour and fragrance, which won't suit everyone. Simple baby is certainly a brand I would buy again, for both myself and my whole family, and i would consider looking at other products in the range, too.
My son has sensitive skin and is prone to psoriasis on his scalp and eczema around his knees, elbows and behind the ears. Recently he fell ill with some minor childhood virus, and he broke out in a benign rash that began to fade 24 hours later. The rash, however, had left the skin a bit scaly, so I put him in the bath and proceeded to help him wash his hair after a soak in some moisturising bath goodies. Imagine my horror when his skin began to redden, and by the next morning, every place the shampoo suds had touched had become covered in an all new red and very raw rash! Looking at the shampoo bottle, I realised that the trusty brand of shampoo I had used on him had changed formula, and he was allergic to it!
My son has long hair, and I felt awful as not only his scalp was more than a little irritated, but so were his cheeks, forehead, ears, back of the neck, all down his back, and even his hips where the suds had dispersed into the bath water. Once I took care of smothering that with the appropriate medicated creams and administered an antihistamine to stop the itching, it was off to the chemist to get some shampoo that I could use on him that would not irritate his now raw scalp. The chemist recommended Simple Baby Shampoo, as it has chamomile and lavender in it and both are reputed to be soothing to the skin and helping the dermis heal.
I paid £1.99 for it, but to be honest, the results have been so good I would have paid a lot more in gratitude. I was dreading that evening's hair wash, as despite the antihistamine, my seven year old had dug in his almost non-existent nails and worried some spots until they had begun to ooze clear fluid.Of course, that meant it dried the hair flat to his head (eww) and that had to be unstuck and the wound areas properly cleaned. Being 7 years old, he knew soap stings wounds, so he was already carrying on when he saw the shampoo bottle come out. It cut off abruptly when he suddenly asked, "You put on the shampoo right?" and I answered that I had, and I began to gently massage it through his hair and scalp.
He commented that not only did it not sting, but that it felt quite pleasant, and then he sniffed it and said that it smelled lovely too.It easily loosened the cradle cap like debris off his scalp as well as the dried in lymph left from his ill advised scratching. The wounds were not irritated at all, and did not begin to ooze again despite the crust being cleaned off . It states that it is moisturising, and I can believe it, as his hair was easy to comb through after, despite being so long (halfway down his back, and quite thick), but even after blow drying on low, the hair was lustrous and soft.
I have washed his hair with it every day now for just over a week, and not only has his itching disappeared and the chemical burn like rash all but vanished, but his hair has stayed soft, shiny, and tangle free despite the daily wash and blow dry. He is rather vain about his hair, so this has pleased him to no end, and I must admit I like not having to battle with him over the hair washing and the combing out of snarls!
The shampoo bottle claims it is perfume and colour free, and I can attest that the only scent appears to come from the natural botanical extracts present. It also says it is skin loving and tear free, and I can whole heartedly agree with that, as when he did get a bit in his eye, it did not redden, he did not scream in sudden surprise, etc, but calmly asked for a cloth to wipe his eye. The skin loving part I think speaks for itself given why I had to go buy this and the subsequent result! The chamomile and lavender definitely did the job of soothing his body and scalp, and the glycerin and vitamin B5 definitely have helped nourish his scalp and hair. In fact, his scalp is all but healed, and looks better than it did BEFORE and his skin, well, all that remains is a bit of dandruff like flakes around his ears and neck line, not bad after such a severe reaction and only a week passing.
I don't think the price is too bad for a 300 ml bottle, as it definitely lasts a while. Using it once a day for a week on my son, my older daughter has also used it and liked it, and we still have nearly 3/4 of the bottle left even though they both have such very long and thick hair. Rather than risk this happening again, I'm going to keep this in for my son as it seems to really help him and am hoping that with these dramatic results, his normal psoriasis will remain appeased.
I've always used Johnson's baby shampoo on my children, however when my last bottle ran out I decided to try Simple Baby shampoo for a change.
The shampoo comes in a 250ml white plastic bottle which is about 8 inches tall, 3 inches wide and 2 inches deep.
The front of the bottle has the Simple logo and tells you that the product is 100& perfume and colour free. It is also paediatrician and dermotoligically approved and hypoallergenic.
The back of the bottle has a detailed list of ingredients, directions for use and further general product information, such as the fact that the product is ph balanced, protects and moisturises your baby's scalp, is suitable for frequent use and importantly with young children - is a no tears formula and easily rinses away.
The bottle cap is at the bottom of the bottle, which is handy as it means the product is always draining the right way, even when you are reahing the bottom of the bottle.
It has a flip top cap and a fairly child-proof seal as even when the cap is opened you actually have to squeeze the bottle to dispense the product.
Th shampoo itself is clear and fairly runny with no discernible scent. It lathers up easily and you only need a small amount to get a good result.
All my children have managed to get this product in their eyes and as yet we've had no tears or complaints that it stings.
I've found that it leaves hair soft and managable, although on my older girls (who have longer hair) I do also need to use a separate conditioner to ensure that they are tangle free after shampooing. On my baby's hair however this shampoo works fine on it's own.
I paid about 79p for the 250ml bottle in Home and Bargain, which I think is a great price. I have seen it priced as high as £2.29 in supermarkets though, which personally I think is too expensive for any baby shampoo.
Shop around though, and you'll find this to be a decent product at a good price.
I have always sung the praises of my usual shampoo, Alberto Balsam in Lavender, however when I changed to Apple, I noticed that my scalp had become dry and itchy, and flaked like dandruff, most embarrassing. So I thought I had better give a baby shampoo a try, hoping the gentle touch might be kinder to my scalp.
I purchased Simple Baby Shampoo in Poundland - £1 for a 250ml bottle. It's a good price, however it's not overly expensive even when purchased in the shops - I've seen it in Morrisons for £1.09 and Boots for £1.19.
The bottle is a top-down design in white with the green Simple logo and 'baby' in pale green underneath. It states in orange 'moisturising shampoo gently cleanses with no tears', underneath which there is a small picture of a baby elephant. The most important bit for me is '100% perfume and colour free, paediatrician approved, dermatologically approved, hypoallergenic'. That's how I knew it would be nice and kind to my poor inflamed scalp.
The shampoo itself is crystal clear, not at all creamy or pearlised, and very clean smelling. It's quite runny too - only a 10p sized amount in a cupped hand is sufficient. It works up a good white lather in my past shoulder length hair, and a bottle (at 1 wash a day) lasts about three weeks.
Because it is so very 'simple' it doesn't have the conditioning effect some other shampoos do. I didn't use a conditioner the first time and my hair was very hard to brush (it was extremely soft and squeaky clean though). It was a bit fly away once I'd brushed and dried it too. I normally use a conditioner, so I purchased the non-baby 'Simple' brand conditioner, and after using the baby shampoo I now use a pea sized amount of conditioner just to hydrate and detangle my hair. Now it dries shiny as well as soft and it looks in great condition. I've actually had comments on it - not something I thought people would notice or comment on, especially when my secret is simply Simple!
I originally intended to use Simple Baby Shampoo only as an interim to settle down my sore scalp and stop the itchiness and flakiness. But the results have been so good, I don't see the need in adding fragrance, colour and all sorts of chemical nasties into the mix. I try and keep my skincare and even my makeup as chemical free as I can, so it makes perfect sense to do the same with my shampoo. It also works out great for my husband who suffers from sensitive skin and can get peeling skin on his hands and face. Now he can use the same shampoo that I do with no risk of irritation.
My mum underwent radiotherapy for cancer over a year ago and was told that the only bathing products including shampoo she was able to use were non-perfumed and non coloured, and specifically recommended Simple products to her. Since then she too has used nothing but Simple.
I absolutely recommend Simple Baby Shampoo for all, not just for those with children, or those with sensitive skin, but based on both the price per bottle compared with all the other 'miracle results' shampoos, and the results I've had with it, it makes the most sense.
If you're tired of paying pounds and pounds per bottle to weigh your hair down, I suggest Simple - it's Simply great!
I have been a user of various different Simple products for about 10 years now, that's if the Grey matter is not having another "Senior moment"! In my book that gives me the right to offer a reasonably informed opinion on them.
Around ten years ago I contracted a scalp infection which the medics and Dermatologists were unable to identify. It was similar to the Contact Dermatitis which I suffer from but was not quite the same. Having, shall we say, a little less "Thatch" than when I was somewhat younger it was a real problem - risk of infection, unsightly etc.
The chosen, by trial and error, route to salvation was through using normal Simple shampoo, which I have reviewed previously, - that worked brilliantly, and helped to clear the problem in a few weeks.
I hear you saying, yes, but what has this got to do with Simple BABY shampoo? Well I will tell you. I find that Regular Simple shampoo can be a little difficult to find sometimes, whereas Simple Baby shampoo appears to be much more widespread. Therefore I use it as a standby when I cannot get sufficient supplies of regular Simple Shampoo.
My thinking behind this was three fold. One, it's made by Simple, Two, according to the Bottle it is Perfume and colour free, with no additives, and Three, If its OK for Babies sensitive skin then there is a fair chance that it will be perfectly OK for my dodgy pate. I am very happy to report that all three assumptions have been proved very sound.
I have used it as a standby Shampoo for quite a while and am pleased to report no ill effects at all. The results are exceptional, in fact maybe a tad better than the Regular stuff, but I wouldn't want to live on the possible difference.
When I do use it, I use it every day, and as with "Regular" Simple I never have a feeling of my hair being "Over washed" or having a dry Itchy scalp or needing any conditioner - the bottle says it is has a moisturising effect so I guess that probably accounts for it. As an aside, it also gives me a "Shine" on top, which is a real bonus - I am naturally referring to the actual Thatch here and not the naturally shiny bit..........honest.
It is just so mild and pure, no perfume, no additives, just plain and simple Shampoo. Maybe it has a special ingredient, what ever! It works for me.
I would doubt that too many Babies have scalps that are as sensitive as mine is to chemicals, perfumes and colourants etc, so I can see no reason why it won't be eminently suitable and safe for baby. If you are looking for a Shampoo which is gentle and mild, I doubt you will find anything better than this.
As with Regular Simple Shampoo, I have nothing but praise for it, and am very happy to give it the full 5 stars.
The bottle is white plastic and the lid which is at the bottom is semi transparent white plastic. On the front of the bottle is the brand name, name of the product, an elephant, some information on the product and the size of the bottle which is 250ml. On the back of the bottle is information about the product, directions, a caution, ingredients list, recyclable symbol, product needs to be used within twelve months of opening symbol and contact information.
I bought this product because my daughter has a skin reaction to Johnson's products and had to find an alternative. I then came across Simple Baby and thought this would be good as I have never had any problems with the Simple skincare range. When I next had to wash my daughter's hair I got out this Simple Baby Moisturising Shampoo and found the lid to be easy to open just a little push to open the flip. I also like the fact that the lid was on the bottom so all the product would already be there and I wouldn't have to turn and shake the bottle. Once I had opened the lid I noticed it had one of those plastic barriers that you can control how much product comes out.
Now to using the product, it is a clear thick liquid and doesn't really have a smell to it as it is 100% perfume and colour free. I then squirted a 10p piece of shampoo into my hand and rubbed it together to start it to foam and it foamed easily. I then started to coat my daughter's hair and it spread easily and evenly throughout her hair. It has managed to get into her eyes on a couple of occasions when she gets over excited but there has been no reaction which is obviously a good thing. The shampoo rinsed out easily and didn't leave any residue at all. Once I had taken her out the bath and dried her hair I noticed it had a lovely shine to and didn't have any static to it at all. She sometimes gets static to her hair when I have used previous shampoos. Overall this is a fantastic product, well recommended if you wasn't an alternative to Johnson's Baby Shampoo or baby; toddler has a reaction to it like mine.
Price and Availability
Simple Baby Moisturising Shampoo is available in most beauty stores and supermarkets and online. The price starts from £1.49 onwards which is 59.6p per 100ml. This low price is available from Superdrug.
I have previously written this review on ciao under the same username.
simple baby shampoo comes in a white plastic bottle that is not see through so i cannot see how much of the shampoo is left which i dont particularly like.
It has a flip top lid on the bottom of the bottle which is ideal as it means you can open it with one hand which is necesary when bathing a young baby. Inside the lid there is a rubber bung to stop the shampoo coming out untill you squeeze the bottle which is great as it doesnt leak out when you dont want it to.
As we all know young babys have very sensative skin so this shampoo has no added colous or perfumes to it so it is delicate enough for a new borns skin, this is great as it realy is as gentle to the skin as it sugests it is but it doesnt have a baby smell to it, it has a rather shampoo like smell to it much the same as an adult shampoo.
It has a no tears formula the same as johnsons do and is suitable for frequent use.
I have used this on both my previous two children and will be using it on the new arrival, it lathered well on there hair and it didnt take a lot of rinsing off which was good, it also reduced the amount of drying my second daughter had to her scalp compared to the johnsons brand we were previously using.
A 250ml bottle cost me £1 so is good value for money.
Both my little ones have quite sensitive skin, especially Christopher who suffers extreme eczema flares, we realised quite early on that Johnson's baby products did not agree with their skin and so sought out another brand of baby products to use on them, what we came across was the Simple range and though Christopher still needs his medicated products Elsa has taken to Simple really well.
Simple baby Shampoo-
Simple baby shampoo is designed with no added perfumes or colourings and aims to be as gentle as possible on delicate babies skin. The shampoo is designed to leave your babies hair clean, undamaged, soft and shiny. Coming in a clean looking white bottle with yellow and green writing Simple baby shampoo appears as exactly that- simple, its design is unfussy and uncomplicated leaving you to concentrate on the product itself, it's designed to stand on it's dispensing end meaning that you get the most of every drop of the shampoo without excessive squeezing of the bottle.
The shampoo is a thick clear liquid and has no smell to it at all, even when water is added or it's applied to the hair there is no scent.
Price & Availability-
Simple baby shampoo is available from most pharmacies and supermarkets in the region of £1.99 for a 250ml bottle.
Simple have a huge range of products available for adults and children alike and includes Simple Baby Soothing Lotion, Simple Baby Moisturising Bath and Simple Baby Moisturising Oil Gel. Check out http://www.auravita.com/brands/AURA/Simple.asp for an extensive product list.
We were given our first bottle of Simple baby shampoo when Elsa was born, nearly 2 years ago, as part of a gift bundle from a relative, initially she had so little hair that it hardly seemed worth using the shampoo but gradually as her hair started growing longer and her tiny grubby fingers started applying various food kinds to her locks we realised shampoo had become a must.
Simple baby shampoo is one of those products where a little really goes a long way and we only need the smallest blob of the product for Elsa's hair, it lathers up really quickly and produces a good enough foam to completely cover her scalp and coat all the hair well. When rinsed out the hair is left clean and fresh with no tangles which is perfect for us as Elsa is a fidget at the best of times, so combing a tangled mess of hair is never an easy task.
I like that the product is free from perfumes and colours, knowing how sensitive Christopher's skin is in general I wouldn't want a product even mixing with their bath water if there was any chance he could have a reaction to it, as it is I can wash Elsa's hair when they are bathing together and not worry that his skin will flare up. Another benefit from the shampoo is that it doesn't effect Elsa's eyes when rinsed out, other products including "no more tears" ones have upset her while washing her hair and have made it near impossible in the past but Simple doesn't bother her at all and she'll actually let me near her with the stuff unlike other brands we've used.
I know that any product like this will never be totally free of nasty "ingredients" but Simple really does seem to hold up on it's promise of being gentle to delicate hair and sensitive skin, we've had no reactions with Elsa's skin since using the product and her hair is always lovely after washing, we also noticed a distinct drop in cradle cap (a skin condition many young babies suffer on their scalp) when we were using Simple on Elsa in her younger days. Because of the small amount needed when being used the bottle lasts a good amount of time which makes it great value for money and it's suitable for the whole family not just babies, I've caught hubby using it a few times but have told him off because he has his own more expensive shampoo that I hate to see being wasted.
Overall this is a great product for young babies, children and grown ups, it does it's job and is reasonably priced, perfect for sensitive and delicate skin, I can highly recommend it.
Having used simple products myself in the past and knowing their benefits I was only too happy to see they done a baby range. My daughter has quite dry skin at times and no matter what I use on her skin or hair at these times it aggravates it.
I started at these times just putting nothing in her bath water and washing her skin with just fresh warm water but as she has a fair bit of hair now I needed something I could use to wash it.
Knowing simple baby products are completely 100% perfume and colour free I figured that giving this a try on her hair would be the next way to go and we have not looked back. It is so gentle on her hair and on her skin that even when her skin is drying out as it does from time to time there is no worries with using this on her, it does not aggravate her skin at all.
The shampoo works into a really nice thick creamy lather and although it is perfume free it has that sort of natural smell to it which is very pleasant. As well as doing my babies skin no harm it also does a very good job of washing her hair and has added moisturizers leave your baby's hair feeling soft and shiny.
You can buy Simple baby shampoo from most supermarkets, chemists and even your local stores such as spar, costcutters, David sands and the likes. It seems to be almost the same price wherever you purchase it, my nearest chemist is Lloyds and they stock the 250ml bottle for £2.10 but asda, Tesco's and my local spar all charge £1.99 for the same sized bottle.
The bottle is quite recognizable, it is white in colour and shapes slightly inwards from bottom to top. It will almost always be found besides other simple products and they all have the dark green simple logo at the top with the word baby in lighter green underneath it for the baby range but mid way down the bottle in large writing it will have the product description, in this case shampoo in big yellowy orange colour writing.
I would recommend this to any mother or father with small children who maybe have over sensitive or dry skin and I would also say if there are any adults out there struggling with extremely dry scalps that no other shampoo seems to deal with then give this a go because on occasions when my own shampoo has run out I have used this once or twice myself until stocking up and it makes my hair feel very clean and extremely smooth.
Thanks for reading.
