Low on time? Here's the quick review:
Poofy Organics is a certified organic family run business that makes over 500 personal care and home cleaning products that are safe for you and your family. We have been using their products for over 2 years now and absolutely love the company and products in every way. They are the absolute safest line that we have come across. The company is Certified Organic and every ingredient and step in their process is accounted for, documented, and analyzed every year by a certified organic agent. If they add an ingredient to a product, it has to be approved before doing so. They not only avoid toxic ingredients such as synthetic fragrance, parabens, triclosan, PEGs, Triethanolamine, Oxybenzone, GMOs and other harmful chemicals but they also use recyclable and biodegradable packaging and never EVER test products on animals. All of their products are made in small batches by hand.
Poofy Organics products range from personal care products like bath and body, deodorants, lotions, sunscreen, oral care, makeup, nail polish, baby products, facial care and essential oils, as well as home cleaning essentials. I love that I have found a company (finally!) that I trust and can go to for almost any personal care or home cleaning product and get them at an affordable price. Hallelujah! A one stop shop for safe products! My heart could sing it makes me so happy!

How do I know these are actually safe products?
I'd just like to start by saying how sick I am of companies saying they have safe ingredients but actually don't. Can anything be easy these days?! Do I really have to search and search for a company that makes safe products, truly and honestly, and doesn't put absolute junk in it that will make my family sick in one way or another?! Thank God for EWG, but do I have to go on the Environmental Working Group website and enter in every product/ingredient that I use to see what the chemical's rating is and if it will give my family cancer?! You would think that companies would be strictly regulated with stringent ingredient testing, but the sad sad truth is that they aren't. We are literally the guinea pigs they test things on. I would really like to know if the CEOs of some of these companies use their own products? I guarantee they don't. The question is, how do they sleep at night selling such terrible products for people's health?
If you wanted to put Poofy Organics to the test, you could type in their products/ingredients into EWG.org to see how safe they are. But even easier, you can turn the product over and look at the ingredient list and you've actually heard of nearly all of the ingredients before. You will see ingredients like Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Unrefined Shea Butter, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Arrow Root Powder, Aluminum-Free Baking Soda, Organic Essential Oils of Peppermint, Spearmint and Tea Tree (OK, you've probably never heard of arrow root before, but you get the point). This is an example of the ingredients in one of their deodorants(they feel and smell great), but you will see similar natural ingredient lists in all of their products. You've heard of nearly all of those ingredients - wasn't that simple and awesome?!
Your Wallet is Casting Your Vote
I admit that I should probably stop watching Netflix documentaries about the hidden dangers of basically everything. But in a way it makes me happy that companies are finally getting the bad press they deserve and us little people are now educated and can make informed decisions when buying, or more importantly not buying, certain products. Each time you buy something think of it as casting your vote. When you choose to buy from safe companies that create healthy products, your money goes to them and in turn they can make more great products for us all. Don't waste your vote!! Be informed before buying. OK, now that I got that off my chest, on to my Poofy Organics review!
For the past two years, our family has been using Poofy Organics products on a regular basis. I love most of them, but I will say that if you have not yet used products with all natural ingredients it may take some time for you to get used to. Products that so many of us have used throughout the years may smell great and work well but it's all at the cost of our health. Many of those products contain, among other things, synthetic fragrances. According to the Environmental Working Group, "fragrance" listed as an ingredient on a product is a loophole on the FDAs regulation of personal care products. It is considered a trade secret under the Fair Package and Labeling act of 1966, allowing companies to not list ingredients so their formula cannot be replicated easily. This means that companies can now add in cost effective, possibly toxic chemicals to their products to make a scent that is "better" than natural. Poofy on the other hand uses all natural organic ingredients such as essential oils in their products so you'll be smelling things like organic essential oil of lavender, peppermint, or lemon to name a few.
How I Found Poofy Organics
In the beginning of my search for safe products for my two daughters and my husband and I, a friend of mine directed me towards an Eco-Friendly website that had reviews on many different companies and products and how safe each one is or isn't. It was there that I found Poofy Organics. Because both of my girls have allergies, I have to read labels very carefully to make sure what I buy will not put them in danger. So along with allergen concerns, I was also looking for natural ingredients that I could recognize on the label. Can anyone feel my pain on reading labels? Try looking at the ingredient list on just about anything. You can't pronounce the ingredients, you've never heard of them, and you certainly don't know if any are safe or not. So you either give up and use it, or you head on over to google some of the ingredients or you type them or the product into the EWG website. Who has this kind of time?! Enter in Poofy Organics! For the love of God thank you. From the bottom of my heart thank you for your commitment to making safe products that we can trust!
Here is a little info from their website so you can see the back story on Poofy:
POOFY ORGANICS was founded in 2006 after a family member was diagnosed with breast cancer. Our family was determined to stop using products laden with toxic chemicals. With no suitable alternatives to turn to, we made it our mission to find the safest and most effective ingredients for our products.
Commercial products are often filled with harmful chemicals, additives and fragrances despite producing irreversible harmful effects on the body and the environment. Our products are safe for our world, children, pets and expectant mothers.
We are a small family-run business and proud of our accomplishments. Products are made fresh, by hand, on our premises in small batches and fragranced only with essential oils and extracts that have long been used for therapeutic properties. When we say ORGANIC, we mean it! With USDA organic certification, you can trust that you're getting the purest products possible! We focus on relaxing the body, stimulating the senses & opening the emotional & spiritual connections to manifest our needs & desires. Through these open channels, arises the opportunity for every person to be inspired in making the world a better place! Give your customers a truly organic & sustainable option and they will be back for more! We have partnered with and support BREAST CANCER ACTION which educates and empowers women by demanding transparency and accountability in pink ribbon marketing.
We promise to avoid toxic ingredients such as synthetic fragrance, parabens, triclosan, PEGs, Triethanolamine, Oxybenzone, GMOs and other harmful chemicals! We use recyclable and biodegradable packaging and never EVER test our products on animals.
But do they actually work?
The great news is that Poofy Organics products are not only safe, but they actually work! I know that everything comes down to personal preference and something that may work for me and my family, may not work for you and your family for some reason or another. I will say that natural products do take a little getting used to because they are sometimes different than the products you are used to using. Products may not smell or taste like what you're used to because these are made with all natural ingredients. Poofy products have been an eye opener for me. I started with their deodorant and loved everything about it and it led me to the next product and the next and I haven't stopped since. Once you start using natural ingredient products you'll be wondering how you ever used anything else. When you see the dyes in your old products, or the word fragrance or when you think back to the cleaning products that made you gag, you'll wish you had these products sooner. I know I do. But I've found them and now I can teach my children (and anyone else willing to listen) that there are safe products and we don't have to put our bodies and health in danger anymore. Thank You Poofy Organics!
