The products are all gorgeous – organic, paraben free, sulphate free, petro chemical free, phthalate free, cruelty free, non toxic and hypoallergenic. All aromas are also from natural extracts and essential oils.
If you’re like me, every product your child uses receives intense scrutiny. From the time my daughter was born, I scoured the shelves and opted for products with the safest ingredients possible. When it came to natural hair care, however, I was not only frustrated by the limited choices for children, but was also disheartened that most were terribly ineffective.
For the first year or two of my daughter’s life, I spent far too much time trying to keep her hair out of her eyes and hold barrettes in place. After searching without success for a child-friendly product to help, I decided to create my own. With a bachelor’s in biomedical science, a master’s in health care administration, and my “street knowledge” as a conscious mom, I knew I had the scientific expertise, health-focused business training, and passion for the subject to pull it off.
I spent months researching ingredients, analyzing product formulations, and gathering a team of scientists. Finally, our first Hip Peas product was born – a hair balm made with safe and natural ingredients that also happens to work miracles! We received great feedback on this product which inspired us to develop others. We are so proud of all of our products and look forward to creating more for our kids and yours!
