Family-friendly Original Sprout products & a giveaway

A new category titled “Mom & Kid” has been created because I realized that I’ve actually been reviewing quite a number of baby products that are also suitable for adults. Like today’s review is a new addition to the category because this range, Original Sprout, is definitely a family-friendly range as they are stated to be formulated for babies and up! (#k8SjZc9Dxk_#k8SjZc9Dxk)

Worry-free range
Original Sprout hails from US and the formulations are said to not contain natural or synthetic ingredients linked with estrogen & hormone disruption, cancer & autism such as Phthalates, Dioxanes 1, 4, Sulfates, Parabens, Lavender or Tea Tree Oils, Clove, Soy, Mineral or Petroleum Oils, Placenta, Synthetic Colors & Titanium Dioxide or Nanoparticles. All products are also free of insect attractors such as honey & soda fragrances.

Not tested on animals & vegan formulated
Original Sprout is not tested on animals. In addition, all products are vegetarian & vegan plus recyclable bottles and tubes are used for packaging. I was sent a few products under the brand for a complimentary review and because of the sheer number of products, I’m not going to put down the ingredient lists but you can look them up here if you need a reference.

Original Sprout Natural Shampoo & Deep Conditioner
The shampoo is sulfate free and is said to contain added sun protection. Although it lathers up pretty well, I’ve found it to be average performing for my rather greasy hair; I suppose it should work better for those with normal hair. Surprisingly, I love the Deep Conditioner a lot because it kept my hair smooth looking and neatly in place without weighing them down. This is a first for me because I’ve always just thought of conditioners as nothing more than a hair detangler.

Original Sprout Hair & Body Babywash & Scrumptious Cream
I like using the Hair & Body Babywash for myself and my son. I don’t find it great for my hair but as a body wash, it sure works well. It lathers up like most of the body washes I’ve used and smells fairly pleasant. As a shampoo, I think the product will work well for babies and young toddlers; my son is already 9 years old, so a separate product like the Natural Shampoo is more suitable for his hair. As for the Scrumptious Baby Cream, that’s quite a love to use in the day, either on myself or my child. It spreads well and isn’t greasy on contact; I’ll even say it makes my skin feels baby soft and smooth.

Original Sprout Natural Hair Gel & Natural Styling Balm
Okay, I didn’t get to use these a lot but I am quite happy that I now have on hand more naturally formulated hair styling products. At least they’re less toxic and are free of mineral oils, DEA, colors or dyes and I have better peace of mind using them on my son, who on some days, aspire to have hair like Sonic the hedgehog! And of the few times I’ve used them on myself or my son, I found them to be easy to wash away too.

Overall summary
All the Original Sprout products reviewed here have worked well for my son and some of them for me too. I think my hair is peculiar because of the greasy condition and so the shampoos don’t work so well for me. Other than that, I’m good with the rest. One thing I’ve noticed about the range is that some of the products have quite a standard scent and I realized that there’s this “certified clean fragrance” listed on a number of their products. I can’t describe the scent well but it didn’t come across as a natural scent to me and definitely smell like some hair products I’ve used in the past. But get past that and the products are fine and what I like is the prices are pretty affordable. The 4oz Natural Shampoo for example is S$16, while the 4oz Hair & Body Babywash is S$16.50.

    I’m a new reader on Viva Woman and newbie into organic products. Am really hooked onto reading more info of the organic world recently. Just got myself a new perm and my current set of shampoo & conditioner is running low. So it’ll be great if I can get my hands on the Natural Shampoo & Deep Conditioner! Thanks so much! ?

  6. aibicon says:

    So far I have not come across salon that uses products that are not harmful. I always like to wash and blow my hair at salons(they got good skills as massaging my scalp) but does not like their strong products.
    I would like to try the sunscreen which is nano particle and titanium oxide free!
    Sunscreen is one of the important products in my daily life now! and probably the Rosa’s Raspberry Shampoo. Thanks.

  7. pout says:

    Hello Ivy, unfortunately Rosa’s Raspberry Shampoo is not under Original Sprout. If you’re looking for a shampoo, may I suggest you try the Natural Shampoo that was reviewed here?
    Rosa’s Raspberry is part of the Circle of Friends brand, a sulphate-free, professional salon range for children.

    Hi! I am loving the clean, fresh packaging which those cute blue bubbles! I would love to try the natural shampoo and the miracle detangler. ($16 + $21 = $37)
    Having heard many great reviews about it and it being the bestseller makes this product is must-have. Plus, it is great that this shampoo is sulfate-free, thus not posing potential health risk. Also, the added bonus of having sun protection is real cool. Moreover, this shampoo seems like a true essential for achieving clean, healthy conditioned hair and scalp, which is essentially all that we hope for!
    Furthermore, I would wish to give the miracle detangler a try. Having learnt about this product from pout’s website, it sounds like the perfect solution to my ever frizzy, untamable hair. It’s amazing how it serves numerous purposes: calms bed head, provides fresh feeling, protects and strengthen, and many more. It really does sound like a product I cannot do without especially when I am on the go and have little time to fuss over hair issues. Would be real glad if given a chance to try these awesome products. Thanks!
