Jenuinely Pure a Genuine Delight
With my first baby, many years ago, I used Johnson & Johnson’s. It was, after all, what my mom used on me. And the smell of the lavender calming wash and lotion was enough to convince me that yes, I was going to follow in her footsteps.
I was even able to ignore some disturbing things I heard about the ingredients in baby soaps. To be honest, I couldn’t handle it. And the people telling me seemed … well, they didn’t seem to be quite logical or able to speak rationally. They were a just a leeeetle bit too passionate, too invested in convincing me, too sure of themselves in a self-righteous “ah-ha!” way.
It wasn’t until a friend of mine, who cleans for cancer families, shared some heart-to-heart facts with me that I experienced what I can only call a conversion.
And then I was relieved of aisles of shopping at the store, much to my delight, and I was introduced to soaps and products that were lovely and so very different than what I had been using.
Gentle for Baby
My latest baby, who loves his bath in a way that makes me think of how I love my coffee, gets more baths than any of my previous ones.
But can you blame him? He has a whole staff of siblings who want to jump in there with him. He can splash and sing and even growl: they will smile and laugh and entertain him as much as he wants.
Now that I’m convinced about what products I use for soap, I’ve noticed that it’s far easier just to grab a bar of soap — any bar of soap! — to wash him. He hasn’t seemed to have any skin problems, so I haven’t worried much about whether they’re gentle enough or any of that. It’s not completely logical on my part, but I hate shopping and I have other kids with skin problems. So what they use, the baby can use, for the most part.
The lavender smell of Jenuinely Pure’s baby wash is enough to make me snag it for my shower. My 8-year-old daughter was begging to use it and loved how it washed her as much as I loved how it washed the baby. (My 5-year-old boy was less impressed.) It doesn’t take much to do the job, and you can rest assured that it’s all organic and natural, so what’s going down the drain won’t hurt the environment.
I also had the baby cream to try, and when I read that it’s made of butters, I understood the texture of it a little better. In fact, if you’re far from Iowa, they recommend that you use the baby oil instead. The smell of both of these products is as divine as the wash, and, while I was tempted to test it, I did not verify whether using them will make my skin as soft as baby’s. 🙂

sounds like products I would use on my kids 🙂
I like knowing toxin-free products won’t harm my son’s health or the environment.
I’ve just been researching all the toxins in our personal care products and started looking for good, affordable replacements – it makes me happy to support small businesses (local – I’m in IA!!) and know that I’m giving me kids one little boost!
*MY KIDS…. not me kids 🙂
Because what we use on our skin soaks inside! Glad to support any company that think this way!
Over the last year I’ve made a great effort to clean up all of our daily personal products… after food and water and cleaning products, this one seemed to be the last place to ‘clean up’… I already love your soaps!
Over the last year-and-a-half I’ve become a lot more concerned about the ingredients my family is exposed to, and recently the ones absorbed by our skin have been on my radar. Unfortunately, even the brands that claim to be more “natural” usually have things I don’t want, so knowing these products are free of toxins without spending hours researching everything in them sounds like a convenient comfort!
Love not worrying about what I am putting on my skin, but especially my kids!
I love having safe products for my family!
hmm. that i’m not killing us slowly with chemicals.
I’m having my first baby and am realizing more and more everyday all the nasty stuff they put in baby products! It would make me feel much better to know that at least his bath time will be safe :).
I love knowing that I don’t have to worry about toxic chemicals on my kids’ skin and possible reactions with their sensitive skin.
I like knowing I’m not harming my children or the environment! I like that they are organic as well!
I really like the idea of toxin free products and am working towards a home 100% pure.
I love knowing that the products I use for my kids with sensitive skin are safe and gentle for them and the environment.
I love that baby can eat it!!
I would love to use products on my little ones that I know are safe & do not have possibly harmful ingredients in them!
I love having one less thing to worry about!
I like knowing that I’m trying to do my best for the best health of my family & myself. I try to avoid toxins as much as I can.
I’ve been trying to switch over ALL our care products to natural products that aren’t just good for us but for the environment too. We’re still working on it. I’ve heard of Jenuinely Pure before but have never tried it. It may be time.
These look like great products. I would like to try them.
I like know that my baby wont have any reactions to the products. Especially if she eats them!
It gives u peace of mind knowing it’s not harmful to u or ur family
I want to know that the products I use are not going to harm my grandson or our pets! I am still trying to convince my lil guy that he shouldn’t drink his bath water!
It makes me feel better knowing my family isn’t having a bunch of unknown ingredients soaking into their bodies!
Since a huge percent of what we apply on our skin gets absorbed into our bloodstream, it is extremely important to know what the product is and what it is made from. Love using natural products because just knowing that they are not harmful makes it so much better:)
I love the comments I am seeing. I am the current owner of Jenuinely Pure, after buying the company from Jenny a year ago. MY family uses the products so you KNOW they are safe! And if you are on a tight budget (and who isn’t these days) this is the line for you…PURE, NATURAL and AFFORDABLE. Now is a great time to try the products with the 15% discount.

Will love to win those beautiful scented products
It’s just nice not to have to wonder if it’s harming my baby in some way. I don’t put up a fuss when occasions arise where we have to use non-safe products (like when I forgot to pack sunscreen for a family reunion this summer), but I breathe a sigh of relief when I’ve got the good stuff back in our hands!
I know I can’t protect my baby from everything, but every little bit helps!
I don’t wan to add chemicals to my home when I clean.
It is wonderful when you know that what your using won’t harm your family in any way!
