Our Baby-Safe Standards Baby-safe is how we create, test, and improve our products. Between idea and reality we talk to parents, doctors, regulatory experts and scientists. We learn what we should and shouldn’t do to make it safe and great. How does or doesn’t the product feel and smell? How does it work and why? What ingredients will make it better? What which are unsafe or unnecessary? How can we can make it easy or fun and economical to use? We test and refine it. And once it’s on the shelf it’s never off our radar. We review ingredients, the latest studies, listen to your feedback and we’re on the lookout for new and better ways to improve performance or safety. Just like our babies we never sleep. Our Do’s and Our Don’ts It goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyway) we don’t use toxic or harmful ingredients. But there’s no generally accepted standard for “natural” and “safe” so we’ve come up with our own. All our ingredients are vetted by experts as safe to use around babies. Our “never use” ingredients come from Natural Product Standards, EU and US lists of ingredients to avoid (parabens, phthalates, known toxins, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, etc.). Then the real parent test: “Is this something we’d confidently use around or on our own babies?” If it’s on the shelf, the answer is “Yes”. In the end, the best way for all of us to help babies develop and thrive is to focus on the ‘yes’s’. How can we add value to you and your baby’s world? How can we better nourish, protect, soothe, or clean? The answers are in ingredients like NeoNourish and Orange Blossom in our night time formulas to relax your baby. It’s in soothing, calming ingredients like Colloidal Oatmeal, Olive Oil, Shea Butter, Aloe and Vitamin E. Our ‘do’s’ mean our products aren’t just safe, they’re gentle, nourishing, moisturizing, cleansing, soothing, rash-reducing, healing, stain-removing, grease-cutting, clean-rinsing, broad spectrum, super-protective, absorbent, and a really good value. So remember the ‘don’ts’. But don’t forget the ‘do’s. Our Testing If it’s on the shelf, our products have brilliantly passed more tests than an Ivy League PhD. We test every product and ingredient for safety and efficacy (Does it rinse? Clean? Protect? Moisturize? Heal?) and our preservatives (Will it last, resist contamination and is it safe?). We test for skin irritation (Human Repeat Insult Patch Testing if you want to get all technical) and eye irritation. We do SPF, Water Resistance & Broad Spectrum tests for our sun care products and Stability and Micro Contamination tests on all our formulas. That’s the short list. If you want to satisfy your inner chemistry nerd call our toll free number. Plenty of geeks on our end are standing by to talk! NeoNourish As part of our ongoing commitment to add ‘yes’s’ to our products we’ve created an ingredient blend that’s special enough to get its own little shout out. This 100% natural, cold-pressed seed oil blend is specifically made for the unique needs of babies’ ‘work in progress’ skin. It’s a combination of oils from the seeds of Black Cumin, Tomato, Sunflower, Cranberry and Red Raspberry. They’re specially balanced to supplement your baby’s natural skin defenses against the environment. You’ll find it in our products that come in the most direct contact with your baby’s skin. From lotions to bath products and even in our diapers. (Heck, we’re tempted to put it all over ourselves.). NeoNourish means Babyganics sun care is also skin care Made to protect and nourish your baby’s ‘work in progress’ skin 100% natural, cold-pressed seed oil blend Black Cumin, Tomato, Sunflower, Cranberry and Red Raspberry Specially balanced to supplement your baby’s skin defenses against the environment (beyond the sun!)

Cons:-1. I admit that this is a bit pasty. But that is due to using natural zinc oxide for sun protection. If I take small amount and rub it in it gets absorbed fine. (Anything natural that absorbs better is around $30 for the same size)2. Cannot just spray and be done :)Pros:-1.It is PABA, paraben, sulfate, phthalate, nano-particle and retinly palmitate free.2. Fragrance free3. Water resistent for more than an hour.I like the smaller 2oz multi pack option. Usually my big containers get caulky after some time. Now I have one for home, one for diaper bag, one for purse and one at the daycare.

My kids are as white as white gets and burn if they are out for more than 10 minutes. With this lotion, we were able to have a Florida beach vacation for a week with no sunburns! Of course I reapplied during the day but they remained safe. The lotion goes on well- it isn’t like peanut butter or hard to spread but it isn’t like water either… just right and doesn’t give you the "ghost" look.

My new all-time favorite Amazon purchase! This fantastic sunscreen goes on smoothly and blends well. It is healthy for babies– no scary ingredients, no extra irritaing fragrances, and protects at SFF 50 level. The price is fantastic for an eco-friendly product.Once you try this sunscreen, you will be hooked and will appreciate the rest of the line: suncreen sticks and super-convenient individual sized tubes.
