Original Sprout Natural Hair & Skin Care Review

Natural, Deep & Scrumptious by Original Sprout

I have mentioned before that I love coming across unique finds, and when it comes to hair and skin care, new products not commonly found in the mainstream, it’s a double delight. 

Recently I was sent 4 oz try-me sizes of three Original Sprout products including the Natural Shampoo, Deep Conditioner and Scrumptious Baby Cream. These, and all of their products are natural organic and 100% vegan formulations that are family friendly, with safe and soothing ingredients. They use fragrances and essential oils that are approved by California's Safe Cosmetics Program and the European Cosmetics Directive, and are free of ingredients linked to estrogen and hormone disruption, autism and cancer concerns. 

According to Original Sprout literature, cancer and early puberty can be linked to hormone disruption, which takes place with either natural or synthetic hormone disrupters such as soy, yam, tea tree, lavender, parabens, titanium dioxide, formaldehyde or nano-particles. In addition to avoiding these ingredients, Original Sprout products are also free of insect attracting honey or soda fragrances. 

Original Sprout Natural Shampoo
With a gentle pH of 6.0-7.0, this sulfate-free cleanser is color safe and suited for all ages. It has added sun protection while organic emollients detangle and make rinsing effortless. Scalp, hair and skin are hydrated, nourished and left healthy, shiny, and easy to comb. 

Original Sprout Deep Conditioner
Hard water, sun, wind, and pollution dehydrate hair making it prone to tangles, frizzies and flyaways. Rich in protein and moisture, this specialized family formula cares for every hair type, transforming frizz into ringlets and flyaways into smooth, silky locks.

Original Sprout Scrumptious Baby Cream
This cream offers a soothing protective barrier that keeps skin soft and smooth. It’s non-greasy and extra hydrating for every skin type. It nurtures delicate skin and is ideal for babies, children and adults.

These three products all contain a host of natural ingredients starting natural zinc and rosemary, a natural bug repellent, that helps calm and soothe sensitive skin. In addition to anti-inflammatory benefits, Calendula soothes skin, and heals cuts and abrasions. Cucumber contains skin-lavishing minerals like magnesium, potassium and silicon while coconut oil is a great natural moisturizer. Known to moisturize and regenerate skin and hair, Cranberry is high in Vitamin A and C and promotes the growth of healthy hair. 

My Take
I was given the opportunity to try the three products above. I love coming across new, smaller lines developed by people who see a need that the big manufacturers may not. Clearly Original Sprout has researched potential harmful ingredients and came up with this line of organic products that are gentle on hair and skin, making them ideal for babies and kids.

Nice little finds, the shampoo was gentle and effective, cleansing my dehydrated, course hair, while the conditioner added moisture and detangling. Both left a very delicate scent and a silky finish. My favorite however was the Scrumptious Cream. It left a clean, almost powdery scent, moisturizing without a greasy finish. It absorbed well and left my hands, arms and normally rough elbows, soft and supple. It's safe enough for babies but effective enough for my dry dermis!
