It’s important to choose safe shampoo and conditioner brands because most contain highly toxic chemicals. Here are 30 brands who are doing it right!
The basis of our work here at The Soft Landing consists of extensive product and company research. We spend many hours each day calling companies, confirming ingredients and generally trying to beat the information out of them 🙂 Well, we don't actually beat them, but you get the idea behind how difficult the task of locating safer products can be. And if you've ever spent time doing your own research, you'll understand why we were so happy with our recent discovery, Ecocentric Mom.
It's a new and super easy way for moms to find safer products for themselves and their families. Wow, easier? Now that's what I'm looking for! Ecocentric Mom is a company dedicated to researching and recommending only safe, ethical and eco-friendly products and foods, and offering them in a convenient monthly package delivered directly to your door. This allows Ecocentric Mom members to “try before you buy” carefully sourced products while eliminating the hassle of locating them with your own precious time and energy. And with so many options available online and in stores, it's hard to know what's truly safe, what actually works and which ones are a waste of time and money, which is another major reason that Ecocentric Mom is such a valuable find.
Like many of us, Rebecca Attanasio, founder and CEO of Ecocentric Mom, feels that chemicals in the environment can be detrimental to our health which drove her to invest enormous amounts of time and money to find the safest products for her family. After several years, it became apparent that she should compile all of her findings and form Ecocentric Mom whereby she could share her accumulated knowledge to benefit the health of families all over the country.
Imagine having peace of mind and saving your hard-earned money at the same time! Ecocentric Mom provides a straight path to hand selected non-toxic and eco-friendly products made by companies with ethical standards and fair trade practices.
How it works
There are three package options for monthly delivery consisting of 5-6 products in each shipment, and you can choose between one, three and six month plans. Each subscription is extremely affordable, and costs as little as $15 a month with free shipping! It adds up to a minimum savings of 20% over the normal cost of purchasing the products conventionally, not to mention the time you'll save on research.

For the last two months the number one search term entered by our readers has been “toothbrush,” so we set out to locate BPA, PVC and Phthalate-free toothbrushes for the whole family. We were pleasantly surprised in many cases, and of course disappointed at the same time by the number of companies that wouldn’t even respond.
Here’s a preliminary list to get you brushing in non-toxic style! We found that most toothbrushes are made from polypropylene (#5) and nylon (for the bristles). We’ll continue adding to the list as we learn about more options.
