Vermont Soap Organics Releases Baby Shampoo

Vermont Soapworks has been raising the bar on natural and organic soap quality and innovation since 1992, and now their latest breakthrough is the first certified organic baby wash shampoo. This is a dual use product for baby's skin and fine hair made to USDA organic food standards that does not contain any chemicals, additives or other weird stuff.

Vermont Soapworks was one of the first companies to gain organic processing certification in 2002 and they have been busy creating innovative organic soap products ever since. The new Organic Baby Wash Shampoo follows a series of pioneering 'firsts' including the first organic: spray cleaner; bath & shower gel; pet wash; yoga mat wash; and foaming liquid hand soap.

"This is a breakthrough product that took over a decade to develop," says

Larry Plesent, founder of Vermont Soap. What sets this baby wash apart from the detergent-based competition is the innovative gel consistency created using natural vegetable gums and glycerin to thicken the company's famous Aloe Castile Liquid Soap base. Offered in an 8-ounce bottle with a convenient top pump for $8.78, and an economical 1-gallon container for

$39.98, Vermont Soap Organics Baby Wash Shampoo is a fragrance-free liquid soap, so it is easy to pump from the container and wash the baby, and then set the jar aside for the next bath.

"This certified organic BabyWash features extraordinary mildness and generates an abundance of foamy lather—and we do it using only natural and certified organic ingredients that are gentle on the skin and the environment," adds Plesent. The ingredients include saponified organic oils of coconut, olive and jojoba, a glycerin and vegetable gum extract, organic aloe vera, rosemary extract, and natural essential oils. The gum and glycerin extract adds extra emollients and silkiness. Unlike mass marketed detergent-based soap products on the market, Vermont Soap does not formulate with synthetic ingredients such as Sodium Laurel Sulfate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol and Triclosan.

"Many chemicals in common personal care products, including those marketed for babies and children are suspected to be harmful to human health and some can cause skin irritation in susceptible individuals," notes Plesent.

Like all of the products from Vermont Soap, the new unscented BabyWash is free of artificial colors and fragrances, chemical preservatives, and animal by-products, and it is not tested on animals.

About Vermont Soapworks - Larry Plesent started Vermont Soap in 1992 after experiencing severe skin problems from the cleaning chemicals used by his window washing company. He began researching healthy alternatives for himself and the many people like him that are sensitive to detergents and other synthetic ingredients. Vermont Soap has grown from a two-person operation in 1992 to become the largest manufacturer of handmade organic bar soap in North America. "As an organic soap company, we see ourselves as molecule herders, rather than molecule torturers," says Plesent. "Our job is to help the molecules follow their nature, and that is what makes us a different kind of company." Vermont Soap operates a Discount Factory Outlet Store and AntiqueSoapMuseum that offers factory tours and demonstrations.

Their products can be purchased at thousands of health food, gourmet and specialty stores and at<>.
