Bath time fun beyond the rubber ducky
At My True Nature™, we believe that childhood is sacred. We spend every second thinking about how to make everyday activities for kids safe and fun. Our first task was to figure out how to make kids laugh in the bath.
The idea for My True Nature™ came after my first baby was born. Like many mothers, I wanted to create a safe home environment. But when I couldn’t find a line of soaps and shampoos that had 100% natural ingredients, performed as well as typical mainstream products, and were completely free of genetically modified organisms, parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic dyes, synthetic fragrances, triclosan or preservatives, I decided to start producing them myself. Before I knew it, I had a line of products that my friends and family loved. I started selling them by word of mouth, and the business has grown from there.
When I started using my products at home, I put cartoon labels on the bottles to make them laugh. I mean, who doesn't love to make their kids laugh? It is intoxicating. My kids loved them, and that’s when the idea for TubbyTown™, a make-believe bath-time wonderland, was born. TubbyTown™’s residents currently include Dewey the dragon, Daisy the skunk, Clio the teddy bear and Ollie the octopus. Each has its own distinctive personality, and its own dedicated bath-time product. I know your little ones will look forward to playing with them each time they step into the tub just like mine do.
Dewey, Daisy, Clio & Ollie were created by artist Macy Wong. Lean more about Dewey, Milo, Clio & Ollie here. Macy loves to make vector illustrations of cute and funny characters which are ideal for projects with children. Macy lives in the Netherlands and enjoys working with people from around the world.

Our bottles are made in the U.S.A. from 100% FDA approved post-consumer PET plastic. Post-consumer plastics have already been processed from a fossil fuel to plastic, so to reuse the material in a new bottle does not require the further depletion of new fossil fuels. Because of this, our bottle manufacturer estimates that the carbon footprint of our bottle is approximately 60% less than with regular PET plastic bottles.
Our recycled bottles are supplied by Alpha Plastics, Inc. through O.Berk Company. Our gift bags are really eco-friendly lunch bags. The bags are made from recycled cotton fibers (scraps are collected and woven into new canvas material) and are reusable and machine washable.
My boys are very much their Father. They act like him, talk like him, look like him, and are just mini hims!!!
Except for one thing. My boys love a good bath!!! That they get from me!!
I can (and have) sat in a bath for hours. It is a great way for me to escape stress and just enjoy alone time.
My boys are a little different. They love to play in the tub (I usually read!!)
They splash and play with toys, and love to play with soap!!
My True Nature has a wonderful line of bath products for kids.
I was sent the Holiday Travel Set which includes Baby Bubble Bath and 2 in 1 Shampoo/Body Wash.
Both bottles have very eye catching cute labels, that the boys (and I) were instantly drawn too.
I love the smells too!! They both smell a lot like bubble stuff that you blow bubbles with. It is a great smell.
The bubble bath made a lot of bubbles in the tub which lasted quite awhile.
The body wash/shampoo smells sooo good going on, and actually did really well cleaning Doug. Doug somehow always manages to have marker on his face, and sometimes it takes two or three washes to come off!! With the body wash it came off in one wash!!
My favorite thing about the soaps is that they are free of all chemicals, dyes and fragrances that are not needed and bad for you.
I want to know that what I give my kids, or put on them is 100% safe.
My True Nature recently won a terrific award. They are the 2011 Red Tricycle Totally Awesome Award Winner.
I really like My True Natures products, and I am very excited to be able to let five of you try them!!!
Each of the five winners will receive the same Holiday Travel Set I got.
