TruKid Review & Giveaway!

I received two bottles of TruKid product for this review.  One lucky winner will receive TruKid products as well - see bottom for details and easy Rafflecopter entry form.



TruKid was invented by mother of six, and CEO of her international products manufacturing company Velocity Source Group.  Jennifer was a busy mom with a great idea - protecting her children from unwanted and unhealthy chemicals.  Using all natural ingredients and scents that children love, TruKid products were formed.  Not only did she make a great product that you can trust - she also added fun songs and poems as well, to help children with their hygienic routines!  She literally thought of everything.



I am always happy to review products I believe in.  I believe that it is important to realize what chemicals we are putting into our bodies, especially into our children's bodies.  I like to know that TruKid offers products with ingredients listed in detail, and contain NO Parabens, Phthalates, Gluten, BPA, SLS, petroleum, fragrances, or harsh chemicals.

Harmful Chemicals:
Parabens: Widely used as preservatives by cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.  These have been linked in low concentrations in breast cancer tumors.
Phthalates: These products are widely used in substances added to plastics and are being removed from many products in the US, Canada, and Europe over health issues arising.  There are even studies being performed that could link Phthalates with Asthma and Wheezing.
Gluten:  A protein found in many foods, several cases in the US of gluten sensitivity due to Celiac disease are reported.  When you can have a product Gluten-free, you no longer have to worry about Gluten sensitivity even if you do not suffer from it.
BPA:  A harmful substance found in most plastics, being phased out of many US products.  BPA is banned in the use of baby bottles, and the FDA has been studying the effects of BPA on children prompting them to remove many BPA products from shelves.
SLS: Used in detergent.  Known to irriate skin and eyes with prolonged use.

It leaves you feeling at ease to know TruKid has left not one, but ALL of those substances out of their products.

For this review I received the following:

The ingredients for these products are easily found on the TruKid website.

Silly Shampoo:
Purified Water, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera)Glycerin (vegetable derived), Panthenol (pro-vitamin B5), Glycine Soja (soyderived) Oil,Polysorbate 20 (fruit derived), Arnica Cordifolia (arnica), Lavandula Angustifolia (lavender, Chamomilla Recutita matricaria (chamomile) oil, Calendula Officinalis Flower (calendula), Camellia Sinensis (white tea), Phenoxyethanol (rose derived), Ethylhexylglycerin (vegetable derived), Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Oil, Citrus Junos (yuzu) Oil, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Oil

Lightly scented with natural oils.

I thoroughly enjoyed the fresh citrus scent of the Silly Shampoo.  Not to mention, my daughter and I both have very sensitive skin.  Her skin gets irritated at the drop of a hat, so I am always a little afraid of trying new products with her.  When we tried our Silly Shampoo, I could not be happier with the results.  Her hair was shiny, clean, smelled great, and to top it off NO skin irritation at all.  She fell right asleep after her bath, and I, needless to say, was a happy mom all the way around.  From one mom to another, TruKid really knows their stuff. 

Dancing Detangler:
Purified Water, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera)Glycerin (vegetable derived), Panthenol (pro-vitamin B5), Glycine Soja (soyderived) Oil,Polysorbate 20 (fruit derived), Arnica Cordifolia (arnica), Lavandula Angustifolia (lavender, Chamomilla Recutita matricaria (chamomile) oil, Calendula Officinalis Flower (calendula), Camellia Sinensis (white tea), Phenoxyethanol (rose derived), Ethylhexylglycerin (vegetable derived), Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Oil, Citrus Junos (yuzu) Oil, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Oil

While my daughter's hair isn't quite long enough to need detangling yet, I have thick hair - I call it Diana Ross hair...there is no other name for it.  I could walk outside and within five minutes come back in a tangled mess - it never fails...brush or no brush.  I had to try this for myself.  The Dancing Detangler also has a great citrus smell.  It really does work wonders.  Pain-free detangling cannot be beat!  


I also received a brand new product in the TruKid line - samples of their Rock'in Rash Relief.  
These samples came at a great time, my daughter has very sensitive skin and often gets diaper rash.  I used a little dab of their Rash Relief serum, and it started to remove the effects within instantly - and I saw rash relief results within two days.  I think this product will be a great addition to the TruKid product line.  

There is even something for the big kids at TruKid - they offer their very own line of adult skincare products listed under TruVillage!

I am more than happy with this product, and I know you will be too!
