Hygiene Never Had it So Good or So Natural
Health and beauty products that are eco-friendly, gentle and all-natural have become important to find for parents and their young children. Consumers have become more educated about skin; a living, breathing tissue that covers and protects bodies but, at the same time, absorbs what comes in contact with it. It makes sense to stock products for kids that are chemical free. Using shampoo, body wash, deodorant and hair care products that are natural and safe gives children the opportunity to begin life with healthy habits.
When teenhood arrives, gentle, no-chemical products are an absolute must. Face washing, applying lip gloss and other smoothers and the sunscreen ritual go into overdrive.
Here’s an opportunity to share with your customers effective yet gentle personal care products for the family. A few brands recommended by The Giggle Guide™ include: Hot Tot, Willa, Sweet Dream Girlz and Lafes.
Hot Tot is Tops for Healthy Hair and Skincare
Hot Tot, an upscale brand of naturally-based hair products for babies and children, has six products that supply the answers to consumers’ demands. “Hot Tot is the only specialized styling line formulated for the physical characteristics of immature hair,” according to Megan Gage, Hot Tot’s founder. “While other companies market their products to children with the use of bright colored packaging and fruity scents, our products cater to the structural differences.”
Catering to tot tresses is a snap with Hot Tot. Products include Sweet Pea Serum, a moisturizing serum designed to create a charming curl for babies and also used for cradle cap. The Conditioning Detangler gently tames knotted locks on long, short, fine and thick hair and can be used on either wet or dry hair. So, bye-bye tears while trying to unsnarl hair.
Styling Gel, with a medium-hold, instantly tames frizz and fly-aways and keeps precious curls soft without feeling sticky or stiff. Structure Whip is a cream that adds texture, separation and flexible hold for tots with serious style. This is the answer for spiky styles like Mohawks and for taming cowlicks. Other beneficiaries are little misses who wear barrettes or like their “do” in a ponytail.
For a no-fuss, no tears shampoo, try Spotless Tot, an especially mild hair and body cleanser. A small amount quickly builds into a rich lather that rinses off easily. For that final embellishment, there is Finishing Mist that keeps styles in place for a polished look all day.
All Hot Tot products are so gentle that they can be used on children with sensitive skin, cradle cap, eczema and allergies. No parabens, petroleum, mineral oil or synthetic colors are used. Hot Tot is totally committed to the health of Mother Earth and recycles everything possible. Packaging is made with recycled paper. Everything bearing the crown logo signals “Fit for a prince or princess.”

Willa Skin Care: Made by Girls for Girls
Willa Start Fresh foaming face wash is a liquid-to-foam cleanser with a fresh summer scent that removes dirt and oil gently, revealing beautiful skin beneath.
Lips stay soft with Smile Butter with vitamin E and shea butter for ultra-moist pouts. Girls can dab it on in party-ready flavors including Miami Mango, St. Tropez Strawberry or Vera Cruz Vanilla. In addition, set out Smile Shimmer lip gloss that makes a mouth shine and shimmer with a hint of color and a load of natural ingredients, including anti-oxidant vitamin E. A cute clip keeps the lip gloss at the ready whenever a smile needs a boost.
Willa clearly took her mother’s lessons to heart by developing Face the Day: a lightweight, oil-free natural SPF 30 face protection formulated with just enough tint to camouflage anything that needs concealing, along with super white Zinc, nature’s most powerful defender against the sun’s damaging UVA/UVB rays.
Anti-oxidant green tea fights free radicals as natural moisturizers keep skin feeling soft and healthy. For girls constantly on the run, On the Go gentle cleansing facial novelettes infused with soothing lavender are practically a necessity. These little wonders, a great solution to cleaning skin without water, don’t require rinsing and come in packages of ten or thirty.
Help make this the generation in which fewer teens have to worry about how their skin looks and feels. Love that teen skin: www.willaskincare.com
Sweet Dream Girlz Products Smell Delicious
The Body Frosting Moisturizer is an eight-ounce bottle of lotion to nourish young skin and promote healing with a generous amount of allantoin, a natural skin healing agent that helps repair surface skin tissue as well as stimulate new cell growth.

Fragrance Spritzer is a breezy way to smell almost edible. Alcohol-free and good for young skin, the eight-ounce spritzer leaves behind the essence of Iced Lemon Cookie, Marshmallow and Chocolate Chip.
Why choose any old body wash when the Body Wash Smoothie with goat’s milk and shea butter is available? Rich and creamy, Smoothie lathers on and leaves skin smelling fresh bakery good.
Most girls love lip balm, especially when it’s packaged in a tiny tin with a cupcake on the lid. Lip Delish Balm with coconut, almond and avocado oils packs a punch in Buttercream or Orange Chocolate Truffle.
For those soft and silky tresses, offer Oo-La-La Hair Conditioner, a natural, unscented moisturizing cream packed full of vitamins, botanicals and wheat protein that leaves hair soft, healthy and gleaming with shine.
