I have really enjoyed my search for cloth diaper safe products that are also gluten free. In November 2011, I finally got a diagnosis for the skin rash I had been suffering with for years.
It turns out that my rash had a name: Dermatitis Herpetaformis. DH is, in super layman’s terms, is Celiac’s Disease with on the skin instead of the gut. I still get all the small intestine damage when eating gluten but I also have the added benefit (sarcasm) of breaking out in itchy blisters.
Many Celiac’s do not have to guard against gluten in body products but with DH it’s a must. One day as I was about to use my favorite wipes solution I decided to check the ingredients…about the same time I decided to check the ingredients of my go-to rash cream…BOTH had gluten!
I couldn’t believe it. I only moped for a minute then set out to find awesome WAHM products safe for cloth diapers and my health.
It was a recommendation by one of you that led me to contacting Desiree of Scarlet’s Naturals. I was shocked to discover that she was recently diagnosed with Celiac’s in January (this has come up 2 other times while talking to WAHM makers of baby products)!
All Scarlet’s Naturals products are GLUTEN FREE!
So, why would you want to check out Scarlet’s Naturals if you don’t have a need to steer clear of gluten?
Because it is highly effective, cloth diaper safe, made by a WAHM and the fragrances are amazing!
Desiree generously provided me with Hiney Honey Bites, Hiney Honey Creme, Scarlet’s Lip Honey and Scarlet’s Suds to try out.
I mentioned smell….ahhhhh…the Hiney Honey Bites are concentrated wipes’ solution cubes with a strong yet non-overpowering fragrance. I have pearberry and I could seriously eat them. But, that would be gross.
They were simple to dissolve and add to my little amber glass spray bottle. Hiney Honey Bites makes changing poopy diapers a little more pleasant :)
Then there is Scarlet’s Suds. This one I got in coconut and I was a bit disappointed that my clothes didn’t smell edible. Not really, but wouldn’t that be awesome if the scent would work like that?! I can’t give a thorough review of the detergent because I recently had to strip my cloth diaper stash. I’m just now getting close to doing the first post-strip laundry cycle.
Scarlet’s Lip Honey was immediately (absolutely true) taken by my 10 year old daughter. Her review, “I love the smell, I love the smoothness and how it leaves my lips feeling soft. Some chapsticks are hard but this is a soft kind. I like the fruity strawberry smell, too!”
The creme de la creme of Scarlet’s Naturals’ product line is the Hiney Honey Creme. I am a huge texture junkie and I love the texture of this! It is creamy and grainy and goes on super smooth. It’s easy to get out of the tin with one hand (while the other is holding up legs) and smear all over.
Hiney Honey Creme is unscented and made with bees wax from their own hives. Very cool.
Scarlet’s Naturals is giving away a product OF YOUR CHOICE! And because I love the Hiney Honey Creme a lot I am going to contribute 1 tin to a winner also!
