The most wonderful time of the year

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Slumber parties, birthdays and teas – oh my!

If you’re like many moms, you may have just expressed your enthusiasm with an inward groan. The thought of yet another upcoming soiree to plan in the middle of all the other activities, swim parties, camps and other summertime fun you’re required to create, as a good mom should (so say the masses), may make you want to pack up and go away for the season – alone.

Don’t dread or fret: ecoprincess can save the day – and the party! Our sweet ecoprincess line has all the treats you need to plan for your girl’s special day, whether she’s the guest of honor or simply a guest. We have what you need to gift the princess and her court.

Two of our favorites:

Our All Natural & Organic Play Makeup Set is her own purse full of two eye shadows, a blush, pink lip shimmer, light pink water-based nail polish and two applicators. All products are completely nontoxic and wash off easily with soap and water (polishes peel off with warm water, too, but we also offer All Natural Polish Remover). And at only $22.99, it’s an incredible value.

Our Party Favor set includes natural lip shimmer, pink water-based polish and body glitter for only $11.99, so princesses can dress up at the party, or apply and have fun at home!

Ecoprincess has three colorful Non-Toxic Polish sets from which to choose, as well a sundry of bath time delights for her. We offer sweet vanilla, citrus and unscented bubble baths and body lotions, as well as bath gel and shampoo and a wonderful detangling conditioner. Single bottles of our bath and hair products are available for only $11.99-$13.99 each. And every set comes in a pretty purse or reusable pink organza bag.

With so many different products to use, she’ll feel grown up like mom for just a little while. And you’ll feel great about letting her use ecoprincess products, because we love our princesses, but we love our environment, too! All our delights are formulated with certified organic and sustainably sourced ingredients. We never use synthetic fragrance, dyes, parabens or chemicals, so they’re safe for princesses and all of the land! So relax, enjoy this season, and don’t forget to pick up a little something for the queen!

Personal care products can affect our ecosystem

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Have you ever considered the number of health and beauty products you use on a daily basis?

How many times per day do you shower, and what products do you use each time? You also probably use a variety of lotions, serums and a number of hair care products. What about cosmetics? Think of all you apply to your face every morning. Lastly, consider the number of times you wash your face, hands, body and hair per week.

And, what about your containers? Though we certainly try, there’s no way we’re able to scrape every single bit of product out of their often vault-like packaging. So many of the industry’s bottles and containers are in no way recyclable. So, off to the trash it goes.

Where does all of the product and packaging go when we’re finished with it?

Our government Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has begun to recognize such items – now officially titled PPCPs (pharmaceuticals and personal care products) as being detected in bodies of water all over the world. While the full effects on the environment are far from being completely understood, it is clear that they are being released into our groundwater in such quantities as to cause concern.

While we know there are ingredients in so many conventional products that are harmful to our bodies (more on that later), it’s important to know that all of these same ingredients also seep into our ecosystem. It may not seem like much if you use one product that is not free of harmful chemicals, but think of it on a collective level. If everyone uses those conventional products on a daily basis, the total amount of ingredients being released into our ecosystem is probably more than we can imagine.

Who and what lives with chemicals in our ecosystem? All living things – plants, animals (all of the living creatures in our seas) feel the effects of our product use. And then, it can and does circle back to the product users. The things we eat – fish, produce – have so many times been contaminated by the chemicals we use on our bodies.

Where does that leave us?

We are a high-consumption culture. Everyone could benefit if we would do a couple of things:

  • Simplify our routines. What can be cut out, or combined? Think of what is likely unnecessary in your beauty routine. And know that some products – or a combination of them – may do more harm than good to your purpose anyway.
  • Use natural and organic ingredients as much as you can. Again, you could be doing more harm than good to your personal care– if you are using products that are not free of chemicals.

We are here for you. Our products are free of toxic, synthetic ingredients, colors, fragrances and preservatives, and are packaged in recyclable materials. Go green & glam with us today.

Safe play makeup

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

For decades we have given in to the desire to look our best by ignoring what’s in our skincare and makeup products. It has been so easy to do so, mostly due to the irresistible packaging and marketing that has bombarded us for so long. Until recently there was little to no education for the public on the potential effects of using many cosmetic ingredients. We’re finding out more and more just how many long- and even short-term effects can occur from the use of daily multiple beauty products. Still we are left to self-monitor what ingredients we apply to our bodies. Beauty items are still the least regulated products available for purchase. Despite this, we as consumers are wising up to what we use.

What about our little girls? For how many decades now have we seen play makeup and skincare products available for our daughters (and before that, for us) on store shelves? With our movement toward all-natural skincare and cosmetics, let’s not forget our innocent girls and what we allow them to use for their makeup playtimes.

What fun they have playing big girl with their own personal care products! The independence that comes with nail painting and playing with makeup can be a sweet childhood memory.

We created the ecoprincess collection just for this. Our 100% natural play makeup, bath, body and hair products are made with certified organic and sustainably sourced ingredients.  We have a variety of affordable play sets perfect for bath time, playtime, dress up and birthday parties. Treat your girls to non-toxic polish and makeup sets, hair products, and bubble baths and lotions in fresh scents. What more could a princess want?

As you’ve made your own switch to all-natural and organic beauty products, you may have noticed the positive difference in your skin. Essential and beneficial elements surround us in nature, which is always healthy for our bodies inside and out. This is evident from the skin transformations we see as we eliminate harsh chemicals from our skincare routines.

It’s hard to imagine going back to the days of blindly applying any old moisturizer and makeup to our delicate skin. Why wouldn’t we take the steps to oversee what the little ones in our lives put on their own skin? Let’s protect our girls, and the environment!

Browse our ecoprincess product line, and see why we love it! We know you and your little one will too!

There’s still time…

Ecoprincess Nail Polish Featured on Toddler Trails

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Our Ecoprincess Nail Polish set was featured on Toddler Trails! Toddler Trails is a blog that covers all things beauty, lifestyle and parenting. It’s a very popular blog for moms and definitely worth a look. Check out the entire article here: Girls Nail Polish.

“My princess just LOVES getting all decked out with makeup, glitter and nail polish. I like to let her get all dressed up for special occassions like her recitals.  However, I have a sneaky suspicion that it isn’t really good for her. Besides, my makeup is for me.  Because of my skin allergies and bacteria, I just don’t like to share.  Which is why EcoPrincess Organics are perfect for her.”
