La Coursière Bio-Organic makes all of their personal care products in Quebec, using many local ingredients. Each product is the result of extensive research and careful sourcing. They're proud to offer consumers high-quality, organic products that they use themselves. And their prices are quite reasonable, especially compared to products I've seen in local retailers.
La Coursière Bio-Organic does NOT use: Sulfate (Sodium laureth sulfate), Cocamide (DEA, MEA), Propylene Glycol, Parabens, Synthetic Fragrance or Fragrance, PEG, EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Phenoxyethanol, Synthetic Dye, Silicone, Petrolatum ... As well, their biodegradable formulas are packaged in recyclable containers without any unnecessary packaging, not tested on animals, and each product label lists a full statement of INCI ingredients.
babies and children. The product line for babies is unscented, while the kids line has a light "fruit punch" scent. My children love the products, and I really like how effective they are. An added bonus that we (and many other users) have found is that the shampoo helps control or clear up the dreaded cradle cap. In fact, it's been more effective for us than anything else we've tried so far. We've found that a little bit of shampoo is sufficient, so the bottle lasts a long time!
We've also used their body wash, both the baby version and the kids version. Again, we're very happy with both products. They lather up nicely so it's easy to give the kids a good scrub -and sometimes they need it! :)
Also in the baby collection is a great diaper cream made with calendula - which is super for healing the skin - and zinc PCA, which is supposed to be safe for cloth diapers made with natural fabrics. It goes on well and absorbs into the skin nicely, and baby's bum is protected from moisture while any irritations seem to heal quickly.
men's shampoo is one of his favourites - and he's very particular! It has a pleasant, light scent, and he finds that it cleans his hair and scalp well without drying it out. He often has trouble with flakes with other shampoos, but this one really seems to do the trick for him. He's also used the body wash and liked it as well.
ladies' lotion. I think probably men could use it too - it doesn't really have a feminine smell! :) I've found it to be great for throughout the day - I'm washing my hands so much, they are almost worn out! A quick rub in of the lotion, and they feel much better, without being greasy or slippery. I've also used the shampoo and body wash and I liked them both as well. I especially liked the scent of the body wash, and how it lathered up on my shower puff so well.
LaCoursière Bio-Organic products are available online or at many retailers throughout Quebec. They offer free shipping for orders over $45 - it might be worth getting a few friends to put together an order and save the shipping costs! :)
