The Green Thirteen #19: Fresh Organics Review and Giveaway (Ends 12/31) CLOSED

Friday, December 18, 2009 Posted by Dina N


Fresh Organics was founded in 2008 by Jeff Wilkinson, a successful enterpreneur and businessman. After becoming a father, Jeff realized that many products designed for babies contained synthetic fragrances and potentially harmful chemicals. He wanted to make better products for his son and for other children, and so Fresh Organics was born - a small company that values honesty, integrity, and service, and hopes to make a difference.


Fresh Organics offers a line of baby products called Organic Baby that includes several hypo-allergenic organic baby care products. The company also has a selection of men's and women's products.  I had the opportunity to try three of the specialty bath items in pomegranate fig: the body butter, the hydrating lotion, and the castile soap.

The pomegranate fig is a very pleasant fragrance, light and fresh. The lotion comes in a 14.2 oz bottle and contains jojoba oil and organic green tea. It's certified organic and does not have harsh chemicals. There are no parabens or petroleum, and the lotion is hypo-allergenic. I wash my hands frequently, and found that this lotion hydrates my skin very well without leaving an oily residue. The lotion is absorbed quickly and leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft. It's appropriate for all skin types.

The body butter is rich and creamy, and works great right after a shower or overnight. This butter is 95.9% organic and natural, made from a blend of wild crafted shea butter, jojoba oil, and other organic oils. I was surprised to learn from the company's website that shea butter is known for its healing properties, and has been used for centuries to heal severely dry skin, eczema, burns, rashes and lessen the irritation of psoriasis. It also provides a natural UV sun protection, protecting your skin from free radical damage. In winter, my skin dries out easily from the cold outside and the heating indoors, and this body butter felt wonderfully pampering.

The castile soap comes in a pack of five, beautifully wrapped and gift-ready with a cute tie decorated with a green leaf. It is made of pure vegetable oil and glycerin, and has crushed walnut to gently exfoliate your skin. This soap is gentle enough for daily use. The soap is lightly scented with a botanical fragrance. I used it in the shower as well as to clean my face. The soap did not irritate my skin and left it feeling clean and refreshed. In fact, this soap complements the body butter and lotion perfectly: clean and exfoliate, then hydrate and moisturize.

I enjoyed using the soap, lotion and body butter. Each of them would make a great gift in itself or a wonderful addition to a spa-themed gift basket. Or, get all three for yourself to indulge and pamper your skin.


Speaking of pampering, Fresh Organics also offers a beautiful heart-shaped box filled with bubble bath roses. Once you are done with your Christmas shopping, think Valentine's Day! Although I would not mind getting one of these at any time during the year.

The lotion and body butter also come in lavender vanilla, and you can complete your set with a cleansing wash or exfoliating scrub. Happy pampering!
