Getting Ready for Spring with The Green Beaver Company

The Green Beaver Company

Based on Mother Nature

The Green Beaver Company

Green Beaver is a family company founded on the belief that the best ingredients come from Mother Nature. We rely on pure, natural ingredients to bring you safe alternatives to common household cleaning or personal care products. From our family to yours, we’re proud to offer products that are good for you, good for the environment, and good for future generations.

As you may or may not know, I have sensitive allergic skin. This means that I have a very low tolerance for a wide spectrum of products ranging from skin care to household cleaners and beyond. I can not use perfumes,  I have problems with most scented products, and I definitely have problems with chemicals. My children also have sensitive skin in varying degrees, and my youngest has eczema. What does all this mean? It means that I am always trying to find products that I can tolerate, that work, and that won’t irritate Hayden’s eczema or cause a flareup. More and more, I’m leaning towards natural products.

In my search for more natural products, I came across a Canadian company called The Green Beaver Company. Located in Ontario, their mission is to provide quality products without all the harsh chemicals and additives that are traditionally used.

  The Green Beaver Company

 

Natural Toothpaste

The Green Beaver Company makes a better-for-you toothpaste, free of all the nasty stuff.  They contain natural cleaning properties such as GMO free coco-glucoside.

What IS coco-glucoside? I know, it sounds like something scary straight out of a laboratory, but it is actually all natural! It is made from renewable raw materials like coconut oil and corn and fruit sugars, and is 100% biodegradable. Not so scary sounding anymore is it?

The Natural Toothpastes do NOT contain:

  • Fluoride or Triclosan
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
  • Carrageenan
  • GMO anything
  • Artificial Flavours or Dyes
  • Chemical Preservatives
  • Artificial Sweeteners

So, how does the Natural Toothpaste work? They contain natural silica and calcium carbonate to whiten your teeth. Natural xylitol from birch trees is used to cleanse your teeth, and flavours are derived from natural ingredients.

Both of the toothpastes I reviewed worked great for cleaning our teeth. My teeth felt nice and clean after using them, and the flavours were nice. I am used to a minty toothpaste, so it took me a little while to get used to the sweeter flavour of these, but once I did I really liked them. They do have a bit of a baking soda flavour to them, but its not overwhelming. The Green Apple smells exactly like a Green Apple body wash I used when I was a teenager (that has long been discontinued), and tastes really nice. The Zesty Orange reminds me of a creamsicle, and is really nice and fresh. My 9 year old preferred the Green Apple, whereas the Zesty Orange was my favourite.

The Green Beaver Company

The Natural Toothpaste comes in 8 different varieties: Frosty Mint, Spearmint, Green Apple, Cinnamon, Zesty Orange, Star Anise, Cilantro Mint and one for Sensitive Teeth.

Junior Beaver

The Green Beaver Company has a complete line of personal care items for children. Designed specifically for a child’s delicate skin, the Junior Beaver line is infused with natural ingredients such as Canadian-grown berries, and carrot oil.

Both Junior Beaver products we tried smelled like a Marshmallow Raspberry milkshake. It took me awhile to figure out what the scent reminded me of, but it reminds me of a Peter’s Drive-in Milkshake that is half marshmallow, and half raspberry. If you’ve never been to Calgary before, you won’t get the reference, but Peter’s Drive-in is a Calgary institution (with the best milk shakes)!

The Green Beaver Company

The Junior Beaver Bubble Bath and Junior Beaver Gentle Shampoo  are both gentle. 99.75% and 99.69% (respectively) of the ingredients used are derived from natural origins. Their scent comes from Marshmallow Root extract, Cranberry Seed Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil and Orange Peel Oil. There are no added dyes, so the products are clear (which is great).

The Green Beaver Company BUBBLES

The bubble bath foams up nicely, and the bubbles last pretty much the duration of my son’s bath. The bubbles themselves leave a soft, light fragrance on my son’s skin, and they did not irritate his skin or cause his eczema to flareup.

The Green Beaver Company SHAMPOO

The shampoo has a nice consistency, and I didn’t need to use too much on my son’s hair. It lathered up nicely, and rinsed away easily without making his eyes burn. His hair was left feeling clean and soft with that light Marshmallow Raspberry Milkshake scent I’ve become quite fond of.

Deodorant

The Green Beaver Company’s Deodorant Sticks are aluminum free. They are chemical-free and work by combining an anti-odorant ingredient found in sage oil combined with Canadian-grown organic Labrador tea. Not only does it prevent new odors from forming, it eliminates current ones.

Why is The Green Beaver Company Natural Deodorant better for you?

  • 100% of ingredients come from natural origin.
  • FREE from alcohol, aluminum, artificial fragrance, ethanol, gluten, GMO, parabens, propylene glycol or PEG, and synthetic fragrance.
  • Certified Ecocert Vegan, not tested on animals, and biodegradable.

The Green Beaver Company

The Green Beaver Company makes six varieties of Deodorant Sticks and six varieties of Deodorant Spray: Lavender, Vetiver, Wild Rose, Tea Tree, Citrus, and Unscented. I was sent the Lavender Deodorant to test, but unfortunately I am extremely allergic to lavender so I gave it to one of my friend’s daughter. She said the scent was not too strong, she had no irritation at all, and she liked that it went on clear and didn’t get all caked up like other deodorants that she’s tried in the past.

Extra Gentle Castile Sunflower Soap

Castile Liquid Soaps are a multi-purpose soap that can be used for just about everything. It is made with cold-pressed Canadian organic sunflower seed oil that is harvested in Quebec. It is so pure that you can actually use it to bathe in lakes and rivers without fear of contaminating them.

The Green Beaver Company

Why should you use The Green Beaver Castile Liquid Soap?

  • 100% of ingredients come from natural origin.
  • FREE from Palm Oil.
  • Certified Ecocert Vegan, not tested on animals, and biodegradable.

What do you mean by “multi-purpose” soap? 

Castile Liquid soaps can be used in a myriad of ways! This ONE bottle can replace your body wash, dish soap, laundry soap, and household cleaners with ease.

How to use:

The Green Beaver Company liquid sunflower soaps are concentrated. You may want to use full strength or dilute it with water depending on your usage.

Body Wash: Use a couple of drops directly on a cloth or fill a bottle with 2 parts soap and 1 part water.

Hand Soap Dispenser: Refill your dispenser with 1 part soap and 3 parts water.

Veggie Wash: Add 1 tablespoon castile soap to 2 cups of water, and spray on your fruits and veggies.

Dish Soap: Simply squirt half of what you would normally use with conventional dish soap directly into the sink.

Floor Cleanser: Use 2 or 3 tablespoons of soap in a full bucket of water and mop your floors to a sparkly new lustre.

Tile, Tub or Stovetop Scrub: Fill a spray bottle with 1 part soap and 3 parts water. Sprinkling a liberal dusting of baking soda to the area you wish to clean then spray the soap solution over the top. Scrub away !

Laundry detergent: Re-use an old laundry soap container and fill it with 2 Litres of hot water, ½ cup of soap, 1/3 cup of baking soda and 1/3 cup of coarse salt. Use ½ to 1 cup per load depending on the level of desired strength you need.
