Bath Time With Pleni Naturals - Chapter 3

Posted by Allyson Owens on

We were beyond THRILLED when green lifestyle blogger Lisa Fennessey of This Organic Girl decided to review Pleni products. We love what Lisa has to say about them, "A fantastic nontoxic option and not to mention any chance to talk about veggies with my kids? I'll take it!"
Lisa is incredibly thorough in her reviews and left no stone unturned when doing her research of the products. Take a moment and read her detailed review.

We love hearing how families are using Pleni Naturals at home!
Molly Hill of Maison Pur reviewed Pleni Naturals products on her amazing organic beauty and non-toxic lifestyle blog and had this to say about the brand:
 "I really like this brand and what they created. I think it's tough to come out with an all natural kid's line that really appeals to children. Pleni Naturals packaging is spot on to my kids and to me, which is big in my book." Check out more of what Molly has to say on her blog here.

Jake and Jacqueline

We are loving the blog post from Jacqueline Fabricius with Jake & Jacqueline of her little ones using Pleni Naturals in the bath! We are thrilled our products were chosen for baby’s first bath with her big brother! The photos are just adorable. Check them out here.

We also love what Jacqueline has to say about the products:

With Hudson, I didn’t use anything but coconut oil until he was well over a year old, but I’m totally comfortable using Pleni Naturals on Sofia at her age. Their products are amazing! They smell delicious, are such great quality (which I always worry about with natural products), and their packaging is adorable!”

Why We Say NO To Jars!

Posted by Allyson Owens on

 

This week I want to talk to you about our packaging. Yes, packaging! I want to explain why I chose to use bottles and tubes over jars. It makes a difference! So many products come in jars and I can understand why in one way; it’s easy and convenient to open a jar top, remove the product and apply it. Believe me, that would make my life a bit easier, too. :-)


With jars, you don’t have to deal with pumps and flips caps and orifice sizes, right? Super easy! But here’s the thing and maybe it’s an aesthetician thing, but many of us learned early in our career to only work with products that have packaging where you don’t actually touch the product. Do you know why that is? GERMS! Because every time you dip your finger into a jar to remove product you are introducing the microbes on your fingers to the said product. And these microbes can potentially contaminate your skin care product. Don’t even get me started on jars for diaper balm or ointment. Yuck!


Being a line dedicated to safe and natural ingredients, and understanding that natural preservatives are more delicate and not as robust to fight off microbes as easily as their synthetic counterparts, we decided a “no jar” policy is the safest way to protect the integrity and safety of our products. And that’s why we use only bottles and tubes for all of our products!

Made Safe Certified

Posted by Allyson Owens on

 

We have big news: All of the Pleni Naturals products have been MADE SAFE certified! And we will continue to create new products that also meet MADE SAFE strict standards to bring you the safest products possible!

Having the MADE SAFE seal means that our products are made with safe ingredients without known carcinogens, behavioral, reproductive, and neuro toxins, hormone disruptors, heavy metals, pesticides, insecticides, flame retardants, toxic solvents, or harmful VOCs! It goes above and beyond to further examine ingredients for concerns for whether they build up in our bodies, don’t break down in the environment, and for general and aquatic toxicity.

In short, it means that we are committed to our MADE SAFE seal and creating products without ingredients known to harm human health or the environment.

So why is this important? Unfortunately, there are tens of thousands of chemicals in use right now in products we use every day; very few of them have been studied and some have been linked to some serious health problems.

Combined with confusing marketing claims like “green” or “eco” (which don’t actually mean anything about how safe or healthy a product is!), this means that people have been stuck trying to figure out which products are actually safe and which ones aren’t – which is almost impossible!

The MADE SAFE seal solves this problem and makes it easy to find trusted, certified products that are made without known harmful chemicals.

With this seal, we’re joining a movement to change how products are made in this country: safer and healthier. By buying MADE SAFE, you can help us bring about this change. Together we can eliminate toxic chemicals altogether!

Look for this seal on our products and on our website, as well as on www.madesafe.org.

Cheers to shopping safer!
