Frequently Asked California Baby Product Questions
What is the best way to store my California Baby products?
California Baby products are made in small batches with the finest, freshest natural ingredients. Store creams and oils in a cool, dry dark place away from direct sunlight and heat. This especially important if you are 'stocking up' by buying multiple products. The bathroom is not the best place to store your products but the hall or bedroom closet is.
When purchasing gallons, California Baby suggest you refill into a smaller bottle and keep it out of the shower unless it will be used completely within one month. If you are reusing your pump or bottle, they suggest you sanitize it with rubbing alcohol between uses. Here's how: pour a small amount into your bottle and shake, pump out or squeeze thru the dispensing cap. Leave it to dry completely (overnight is best) on paper towels. The alcohol will evaporate without a trace of residue.
Do you use organic ingredients? Are any of your products certified organic?
The California Baby FDA registered manufacturing facility is also Certified USDA NOP Organic. Whereas many skincare companies function without any regulation and often say whatever they want about their products, California Baby follows strict set regulatory protocols (checked and certified by a 3rd party) so that you receive only the best and safest products. To operate a FDA registered facility (licensed to make drugs) is huge and the organic certification is the icing on the cake!
California Baby continues to lead the way in the purchasing and contracting with organic farmers in the USA. They work closely with them and purchase years in advance so that the farmer knows he has a home for his organic crop avoiding the fluctuations in market conditions. Jessica, California Baby founder & developer, also works closely with raw material suppliers to increase their organic content and pushes for innovation in Green Chemistry production process. However, sometimes, due to their strict allergen standard, organic might not be the best option. For example, they require that their vegetable oils be processed in a nut-free facility. If the only organic option for vegetable oil is one that comes from a facility that also processes nuts, they will chose the non-organic option-so that they are guaranteed allergen free material thus avoiding cross contamination. California Baby customers can always rest assured that they are continuously using and updating their formulas with organic material that also meets their strict allergen profile so that you receive the healthiest, most natural ingredients available.
Do you test on animals?
California Baby does NOT conduct product or ingredient tests of any kind on animals. They test in vitro or on humans.
Are your products safe for pregnant women to use?
California Baby Super Sensitive products (no fragrance) are an excellent choice for use during pregnancy. They recommend that any expectant mother check with her physician before changing her skin care routine with our products, or any other line of products.
The product I purchased is a little darker (or lighter) than my last bottle, is this normal?
Natural products can vary in scent, color and to some extent texture. As natural ingredients are crop based, there are many [natural] factors that can affect the look of a product based on the growing season, the time of year the ingredient was harvested/processed, etc. These variances are what make natural products unique. Products can darker over time as the herbs become more pronounced; herbs may fall to the bottom of the bottle (simply shake to mix). Essential oils are volatile (evaporate as they release their scent) and you may notice a slight change in the blend. This is normal. California Baby essential oil blends are complex and expected to be enjoyed in each stage of the "opening" of their high purity oils.
Are your products paraben free?
Yes, all California Baby are free of parabens.
I have multiple sensitivities; are California Baby products free of common allergens?
California Baby products are free of common allergens such as milk, egg, peanut, walnut, cashew, almond and pecans, fish, shellfish, soy, and wheat. California Baby products are also free of gluten and casein.
What is "Natural" fragrance and what do you mean by No Fragrance?
California Baby Super Sensitive products do not contain any added scent or scent masking agents to make them smell like nothing. California Baby products do not contain clear formula chemicals (for many other products to be completely clear, chemicals must be added to cut through the natural cloudiness of the formula). Natural products will have their own natural scent-this is to be expected and tells you that no scent masking agents have been added. When a product smells like absolutely nothing, it is time to be suspicious!

A note from Jessica, the developer of California Baby:
"Welcome to the world of aromatherapy! I use essential oils with my children almost daily, starting at age 6 months, I have noticed that they get sick less often and recover from illnesses faster. All California Baby blends are developed in consultation with an aromatherapist; we use oils that are known for their safety and efficacy. If you're new to aromatherapy, with a little practice you will find that essential oils are versatile, easy to use, and indispensable! I feel that by using aromatherapy with your children, their sense of smell will remain potent into adulthood. Our pure, aromatherapy quality essential oils do not contain synthetic additives; they are tested for purity.

With my husband running business operations, California Baby continues to innovate and grow. We are proud that California Baby is the only complete natural baby line to make the jump from a niche market to a nationally recognized brand that is sold in top retail stores like Whole Foods, Babies R' Us and Target. Heading development, I work with leading raw material suppliers to create and pioneer safe, new and improved green ingredients. True to our toxin-free, sustainability-focused roots, we steer clear of Diethanolamine (DEA), sulfates, dyes, numbing agents, and ingredients that can trigger allergies in young ones or chemically sensitive adults, including synthetic fragrances, dairy, soy, peanuts and gluten. Our strict standards ensure that all of our products are CA Prop 65 compliant, which means they contain no carcinogens such as 1-4 Dioxane or phthalates. Our essential oils are third party tested for purity.
As a mother of two, I completely relate to the anxiety that accompanies the steady stream of toxic and environmental crises in the news -- phthalates in fragrances and sippy cups, arsenic in talcum powder, pharmaceuticals in our water. That is why I've been committed to sustainable business practices from the get-go, using sustainable and biodegradable ingredients and recyclable packaging for our products. Eager to take green to the extreme, California Baby is converting all aspects of business and manufacturing processes to earth-first, zero waste, solar power and recyclable systems.
Our new, eco-friendly California Baby showroom, featuring such sustainable materials as cork flooring and zero or low VOC paint, serves as a learning laboratory to the public, teaching parents and others how to embrace the earth -first, all-natural lifestyle I've cultivated for over 20 years-encouraging others to learn from my experience.
Our efforts to protect future generations extend beyond our Los Angeles facilities. An active member of the Organic Trade Association, California Baby serves on a task force committee to recommend organic standards in the cosmetics industry. We also collaborate with leading groups and companies to initiate congressional action that will establish federal legislation demanding safe cosmetics. We believe that our mission extends far beyond creating products that are safe for children and healthy for the environment. We strive to educate and enlighten parents to the simple principles of natural living, adhering always to our founding philosophy: what's good for the environment is good for families."
