I’ve always been a sucker for “all-natural” and “cruelty free” products, but since becoming a mother, using products like this have taken on a bigger meaning. There are enough chemicals floating around these days that if I can limit the amount of exposure in everyday products I try. Because of this, I was excited to give BomaSense skin and hair products a try.
BomaSense is a small California company dedicated to providing all-natural hair and skin products which are never tested on animals. They contain no sulfates or preservatives and are made completely from botanicals and essential oils. The company has been in existence since 1996 and began in order to provide safe products for those suffering from chronic illnesses. Their current products include shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, bar soap, salve and lip balm. The hair and skin care comes in unscented, lavender and mango.
I had the opportunity to sample each of the products in the lavender scent. The lavender is subtle and not overpowering. I always worry when I use lavender products that it might be TOO strong and actually work its relaxing magic on me and I might not make it through the day without a nap!
One thing I noticed about the products is that they seem a bit “watery”. Now, with sulfate free products there are some differences from products that contain them, and that may be what makes them not quite as “sudsy” or “thick”. If you’re looking for thick and luxurious, you won’t find that with BomaSense products. But you will be pleased with how clean both your skin and hair feel. Despite being “watery”, the lotion still provides good coverage and a scent that’s not overwhelming.
If you’re used to sulfate free products, these will be right in line with what you expect from them as far as quality and effectiveness. If you’re not used to sulfate free products, don’t worry. They’re effective. They just take some getting used to, and they’re SO much safer for both your use and use on your children.
You can purchase BomaSense products from their website, BomaSense.com and all shampoos, conditioners, body wash and lotions are $15 per bottle. You can buy all four products together in a gift pack for $50.
