A note from Jessica, developer of California Baby:
"If you are like me, you are constantly washing your hands (don’t get me started on that subject! If you’ve visited our Hand washing page, you know we have created a whole ‘how-to’ on hand washing…) as a result, I am constantly applying lotion. I love the herbal-y scent of this lotion, which seems to help me slow down a beat and just breathe. A small drop is all that is needed for quick and easy moisturizing. In the summer, I use our everyday lotions on my face to hydrate without heaviness. The perfect compliment to our rich and creamy Calendula cream, which I use every night—especially around the eyes!"

I have food allergies and am following a restricted diet. What products are appropriate for my use?
California Baby products are free from 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. Synthetic fragrances may contain phthalates and other irritants. To ensure purity, California Baby's essential oils are tested for synthetic contaminants and pesticide residue. California Baby suggests that you always do a patch test before use.
Here’s how: apply a small amount of the product to the inside of the wrist right before bedtime. In the morning look at the area for any redness, itchiness or any sign of irritation. Do this for 7 days. If you are sensitive to a product it is likely to show up during this test.
Are your products non-comedogenic?
This term refers to ingredients in beauty products that clog the pores and can cause blackheads, pimples or cosmetic-related acne. California Baby does not use potentially comedogenic, non-natural ingredients like mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffin and dyes that are commonly found in other personal care products.
Are your products safe for pregnant women to use?
California Baby Super Sensitive products (no fragrance) are an excellent choice for use during pregnancy. California Baby recommends that any expectant mother check with her physician before changing her skin care routine with our products, or any other line of products.
I am a Vegan. What products can I use?
All California Baby products start with a vegetarian point of view. California Baby makes two products that utilize animal ingredients: California Baby Diaper Rash Cream contains an ultra-purified lanolin and our sunblock sticks contain beeswax. The choice was made to use lanolin and beeswax as water barriers instead of the typical (cheaper and cruder) petroleum and fish oil alternatives. Lanolin is extracted from the wool of the sheep and is not considered a body fat. Beeswax is hypoallergenic and is considered acceptable by many vegetarians.
Do you test on animals?
California Baby does NOT conduct product or ingredient tests of any kind on animals.
Do you use organic ingredients? Are any of your products certified organic?
A note from Jessica, developer of California Baby: "At California Baby, we believe that a personal care product that is natural, safe and sustainable is more beneficial to our consumers and the planet than simply bearing an organic seal—the current USDA organic seal is designed for food—not personal care; the safety and efficacy of all the ingredients (active and inactive) are not the primary objective of the code, which we feel should be an important component of any cosmetics standard. After all, personal hygiene products are not food. Currently there are a few new personal care organic standards being developed, and California Baby is on the forefront of developments and will keep you posted.
From day one (1995), California Baby has always purchased organic ingredients and we continue to always to “look to buy organic.” But we also have our own—very stringent guidelines—and the two don’t always coalesce. For instance, we require that our vegetable oils not be processed in a facility that also processes nuts. The oils may be available organically but if they are processed in a facility that also processes nuts—this is not acceptable to us. This is just once instance where organic is not the better choice for us."
Jessica, the developer of California Baby has served on the steering committee of the new Natural Standard backed by the Natural Products Association (NPA) and we comment frequently on organic rule making message boards, in addition to being an active and compliant co-signer of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (EWG).
