Safe and Natural Hair & Body Care from ThinkSport

A while back, I told you about the absolutely coolest water bottle I’d discovered from ThinkSport. Well, they’ve done it again with a new safe and healthy line of body care products that is perfect for the whole family! And I’m super happy that they sent us some to try so that we could tell you all about it!

If you’re like us, you have a space-hogging assortment of shampoos, conditioners, body washes and soaps for different members of the family. One is too floral for him, another to harsh for her, etc. Plus there’s the whole issue of ingredients. I’ve got bottles of stuff sitting around that I thought were natural or healthy only to discover that they irritate my skin or scalp anyway or just don’t live up to their claims! Have you ever read the label on some of the stuff you’ve been using??? In addition to the false promises made by many companies, there’s a large number of ingredients that are unhealthy and shouldn’t even be in products we use on our bodies! ThinkSport has solved all of this with their new line.

Don’t let the name fool you. I was concerned when I first heart about these products that the scent or strength would be too “sporty” for me but both the ThinkSport Shampoo and the Conditioner smell amazing and are gentle yet effective at the same time. I LOVE that the shampoo was designed to double as a body wash! I use it to shave my legs, and with my Clarisonic brush on my arms, elbows and knees to gently exfoliate those rough spots. The hubby started training for a marathon, and he commented recently on how the grapefruit scent is a nice pick-me-up after a long run.

In addition to being really nice hair and body products, it’s important to point out that all the ingredients are clearly listed on the bottle and are 100% safe. There are no parabens, PABA, phthalates or 1,4 dioxane…which are all things that you want to avoid according to the health experts from the Environmental Working Group that studies this stuff.

ThinkSport has even gone so far as to publish the EWG ratings for each ingredient, right on the bottle’s label! As you can see, every ingredient has a 0-1 hazard rating which is the BEST according to the EWG Skin Deep Database and rating scale for product safety. Try comparing your current shampoo or body wash ingredients and learn more about the Skin Deep Ratings here.

Compared with other similar quality natural shampoos I’ve seen around, ThinkSport has priced these pretty well at $12.99 for a 16 oz. bottle of shampoo/body wash or conditioner. I always tend to run out of conditioner first, but with the shampoo also doubling as a body wash, my bottles are staying about even which makes it easier for restocking. They also make a baby shampoo and an after sun/sport body lotion. You can find out more and browse everything at the ThinkSport online store.

I received the products mentioned so that I could use them and let you know what I think. All opinions are 100% my own and I was not told what to say.

Thinksport: Safer Water Bottles and Sunscreen + Support the Fight Against Cancer!

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

thinksport reviewThink all water bottles and sunscreen are the same? Think again! Many water bottles and sunscreen contain harmful materials or ingredients so even with these simple everyday items, you need to do your research.

By now, everyone should be aware of the concerns regarding BPA, a chemical compound frequently used in plastic bottles and other food containers.  One helpful source of info is EWG, the Environmental Working Group, which provides all kinds of info about safer food and products. They were among the first to warn about the dangers of BPA. EWG also manages a database called Skin Deep with safety ratings for skin and cosmetic products including sunscreen. Whether you have human babies, fur kids or are just concerned about your own health, I suggest you check them out.

Since we recently started Nutrisystem we are drinking LOTS of water and getting more serious about exercise. Plus, it’s finally cooling off down here, which means we can spend more time outdoors walking and playing with Daisy. Perfect timing to try a handy new water bottle and safer sunscreen from ThinkSport!
