Today is Your Lucky Day..Episencial Review and Giveaway {closed}

Congrats to comment #57- Katie Karr!

.....because I have pink eye and cannot go to work! Therefore, I can post a few giveaways for you! Yay, Happy Saturday (for you, not me!) I recently started reading the book "Slow Death by Rubber Duck" by Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie. In this book it talks about the chemicals that are present in every household. They lurk in everything from your shampoo to your rubber duck. (I will write more about this book later). One thing I want to share is the fact that there are not very many companies out there that say no phthalates, no BpA and no chemicals in our products. Episencial is one of those rare few! That, to me, is impressive.



Episencial was founded by Kim Walls, M.S., a second-generation skin care expert from the Epicuren family, who couldn’t find skin care products for her babies that met her standards for quality and care for the environment – so, she created her own with the help of several moms and dads. Episencial now proudly offers two distinct all natural skin care lines: Epicuren Baby featuring exclusive imagery from renowned artist Anne Geddes and the new Episencial skin care system with artwork from The World of Eric Carle.

Sales of Episencial products benefit the company’s philanthropic partner Healthy Child, Healthy World and its mission to protect children from harmful chemicals.

What is so great about Episencial:
*baby safe for the most sensitive skin – ages 0 to 150
*immunity enhancing with doctor recommended, clinically effective formulas
*free from all the bad stuff – no harsh chemicals
*terrific smelling with real fruit juice extracts – not fragrances
*made exclusively with all natural ingredients and lots of organics
*beautifully packaged in recycled and sustainable materials – phthalate and BpA free
*adorned with art beloved by children for generations, Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar
*manufactured under solar power

I have tried a gazillion "all natural and organic" children's bath products and Episencial is on to something. They use real fruit juices to scent their products so the fragrance is very minimal. I use their Better Body Butter myself and I don't like to share. Even though it is made with Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil and Olive Oil, it is very light and it absorbs REALLY quickly! This totally cleared up my dry, cracked hands. Amazing stuff! I also really love their Playful Foaming Wash. The scent is a mild orange but the cleaning action is awesome. A little truly goes a long way and it tackles everything from spaghetti-caked faces to syrupy fingers with ease. This is a new favorite.

I can't really say enough about a company that not only makes a difference in this world by creating products using Solar Power but also the products themselves are as green as green can be! A+ not only in my world but also in the Healthy Child, Healthy World's world too! Their products are designed to support the skin’s role in the body’s immune system to promote health and wellness as well as beauty. Who doesn't love that mantra? I know Dr. Alan Greene does. Look at what he said about our skin.


Don't just trust any ole brand to get your child clean. Nourish their skin with Episencial. You will be so delighted that you did!

Would you like to win 4 Episencial products? One lucky winner will be able to bathe with their Playful Foaming Wash, Sweet Dreams Bubble Bath, Better Body Butter and Protective Face Balm! How awesome is that? Its a $34 value! Just head over to Episencial and tell me something that caught your eye! Their is a lot of juicy information on their site so be creative!

Main entry:

I visited the Episencial website. I like that the Episencial product containers feature the art of Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar and that the products are baby safe for even the most sensitive skin.

I would love to try the Episencial Soothing Cream for eczema, itches & bothered skin.
