EcoMom Review: Episencial Nurturing Balm + Play All Day Wipes

Look no further  for Eco-Friendly Baby Products – Ecomom is your one-stop shop to all things safe, organic and “green” for your baby, your children, your home and your life.  Like I have said in a previous review and a featured sponsor spotlight post, EcoMom is an invaluable resource for a busy mom like myself.  The only problem is that I could also see myself spending a lot of money buying item after item from their online catalog, which is quite large!  For our “A Merry Fluffy Christmas” Giveaway Event, EcoMom sent us a couple of items for review:

Episencial Nurturing Balm

Episencial is the first and only professional-quality, all natural skincare system created specifically for the unique developing skin type of babies and kids, though this  balm can be used by anyone from ages 0 to 150 (as is noted on their packaging).  The extra gentle formula of certified organic ingredients in the Episencial Nurturing Balm is safe enough for newborns to use and feature an exclusive skin immune complex to boost the skin’s immune functions and help the body ward off illnesses.

Although my daughter did not have any diaper rash during the period of this review, she did have a small and seemingly bothersome rash on her abdomen.  After using this balm ONCE, the rash disappeared.  So, this cream does work (and fast)!

The combination of the zinc, tea tree oil, organic aloe vera, calendula, olive oil, shea butter and antioxidants work together to:

  • Prevent, relieve, protect and heal rashes of all kinds and damaged skin
  • Reduce bacteria and fungus growth
  • Seal out wetness and germs
  • Restore skin health
  • Soothe and cool red, itchy, irritated skin

Free from: parabens, phthalates, hormones, phenoxyethanol, preservatives, EDTA, petroleum, SLS, fragrances, gluten, nut oils

Packaged in recycled and sustainable materials, and manufactured using solar power, Episencial products are good for your babies, kids and the planet! Made in the USA.

BUY: $9.99 for a 4-ounce tube

Play All Day Flannel Cotton Flannel Wipes

The average family will spend about $400 on wipes from birth to potty training. Using cloth wipes even part time can help cut down significantly on this cost.

Made in the USA, the Play All Day single layer 100% cotton flannel wipes can be used as a baby wipe, hankie, paper towels, napkin or anything you can think of needing to be wiped or cleaned!

At our home, we added them to our current baby wipe stash.  These wipes make a trimmer version of most cloth wipes, which is fabulous when using them as pop-ups in baby wipe dispensers.  Our other wipes are too bulky, so I can’t fit quite as many in the box at a time, plus they require a little extra “oomph” to pull them out.

BUY: $11.50 for one dozen wipes


Use the code “SBBL485” and you will receive 15% off your first order you place with them between now and December 31, 2010.

Purchase an annual EcoPass and you will receive a 15% discount on every order and free ground shipping (with no minimums).  The $99 annual membership costs only $8.25 per month and pays for itself in as few as four orders.

Find out more about on their website and on my previous spotlight sponsor post.  And don’t forget to come back during our “A Merry Fluffy Christmas” Giveaway Event starting December 1st to win about $500 worth of cloth diapering items, including a $15 Gift Certificate from EcoMom!
