California Baby Suncare


KNOW YOUR SUNSCREEN Chemical dangers and misleading labels lurk in conventional chemical sunscreen actives

By now, we’re all well aware that too much sun can cause cancer, premature aging, and other serious health problems. So you limit your time in the sun, wear protective clothing and of course – wear sunscreen. What you may not know is that many mass-marketed, conventional chemical sunscreens, and even some “natural” brands, contain chemicals that have been shown to be harmful to humans of all ages. The very fact that these sunscreens are absorbed into the skin and therefore into our bodies is the key to their dangerous nature.

On the bright side, with California Baby, you CAN stay safe from a broad-spectrum of damaging solar rays while also avoiding the harmful chemicals in many sunscreens. Our titanium dioxide formula creates a broad spectrum physical barrier between your skin and damaging UVA and UVB rays. Chemical-based sunscreens are absorbed into your body, with potentially harmful side-effects.


CALIFORNIA BABY TOPS THE CHARTS FOR SUN SAFETY Our most award-winning product may also be our most important

We’re especially proud that the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a renowned watchdog organization for consumer safety and environmental responsibility, has named our sunscreen a top pick for the past eight years and counting. For more information on the EWG and their guidelines for sun safety, visit www.ewg.org/sunsafety. To shop sun care online, visit California Baby Suncare.


NEXT WE TOOK SOMETHING GOOD AND MADE IT BETTER
Once we cracked the code of safe and effective mineral-based sunscreen, our goal was to make it as comfortable and easy to use as any sunscreen out there. So we added a second starch to help it spread easier and have a dry, non-greasy finish. Our sunscreen also benefits from our super-green, super-clean preservative system that keeps bacteria out of the manufacturing process and keeps irritants out of the container.

SUNSCREEN APPLICATION TIPS

       


STAYING SAFE IN THE SUN IS AS EASY AS 1-2-3
1) Establish a family suncare routine and stick to it.
2) Choose California Baby, one of the purest, safest sunscreens available.
3) Use common sense. Limit time in the sun, wear protective eyewear, hats and clothing.


IS 'WATERPROOF' SUNSCREEN FOR REAL?

‘Waterproof’ is not an accepted term and is misused—water resistant is the correct term. Companies can use ‘water-resistant’ if their product is effective after 40 minutes in water or perspiring, and water-resistant if effective after 80 minutes in the water or perspiring. California Baby SPF30+ sunscreens have tested as ‘Very Water Resistant’ effective after 80 minutes and our SPF18 is ‘Water Resistant’ effective after 40 minutes.
