Green Beaver Jr. Product Review and Giveaway | Toronto Teacher Mom

Green Beaver Jr. Product Review and Giveaway

Wednesday, February 24, 2010



Last month, I posted a review on Green Beaver Company. Founded in 2002 by biochemist Karen Clark and husband Alain Ménard, microbiologist, the company currently distributes their products to hundreds of natural health stores all over Canada. The best thing about their products is that they are made with organic Canadian ingredients that are edible, vegan and gluten-free, or ecologically wild-crafted. They do not use artificial, synthetic, chemical or petrol-derived ingredients, nor do they test their products on animals.

You're probably wondering what types of personal care products Green Beaver carries. It would be easier to name what they don't carry. They seem to be inventing chemical-free and biodegradable formulas even as I'm typing. From EcoCert-certified organic foaming hand soap to their luscious lip shimmers, you name it, they got it. They have something for the whole family and have recently added Green Beaver Jr. for Kids.


And I, er... I mean... my kids had the wonderful pleasure of testing their first ever foaming hand soap, along with a foaming body wash and bubble bath. First off, let me say that the packaging is a real hit. The colours are fun and bright, and the bucktooth beaver on the label is cute, too. The bottles are even molded to give a better grip when using them in the bath or shower. As soon as the package arrived, my 4-year-old daughter couldn't wait to try out these products. Having her own personal and coordinated bath products instantly made her feel so proud and so grown-up and her mother slightly jealous. It comes in a Boreal Berries scent which my kids love, especially my son who could devour a bowl of berries faster than you can say, "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." If Mary Poppins were to rate Green Beaver Jr. products, she might say that they're (insert Julie Andrew accent here) practically perfect in every way. However, she'd probably challenge the makers to come up with a formula that changes scent with each pump. Heck, if they could make a bottle of cough syrup that changes in colour and in flavour back in the 60's, I'm sure they can figure something out in our current millennium.

In any case, Green Beaver Jr. has successfully made hand-washing and bathing that much more fun in our household and for that I'm grateful. I'm especially grateful that their products are biodegradable, vegan, and gluten-free, are made in Canada and that roughly 99% of the ingredients are of natural origin. It just makes me feel better should my kids decide to sample a drink of their bathwater while I'm not looking.
