Ingredients & Packaging
Age: The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) states that if exposure to the sun is unavoidable and your baby is under 6 months, a mineral-based sunscreen (like ours) should be used; consult with your physician. The AAP recommends that because an infant's skin is very thin and sensitive, infants under 6 months should be kept out of the sun. Scent: No added fragrance or scent masking agents. For Use: Face and body. Does not sting the eyes! For year-round use. SPF Protection Level: Provides moderate-level protection against sunburn. Water Resistant: Retains effectiveness after 40 minutes of activity in water or perspiring.
Product description: Whether you have sensitive skin or just like your UV protection without scent, our all-star SPF 18 has got you covered. It's ultra-light and sheer, making it ideal for use on the face and can easily double as a morning moisturizer. Packaged with a convenient pump that locks for safe travel— it's perfectly portable! Formulated without PABA or invasive chemicals, our silky SPF18 moisturizing lotion is simple and elegant utilizing a micronized titanium dioxide. It sits on top of the skin scattering and reflecting dangerous UVA-UVB rays, providing broad-spectrum protection. Non-staining.
Double duty as a light moisturizer
Works great under make-up; our non-greasy, sheer finish helps "brighten" the skin!
Perfect protection on overcast days
Don't forget that when traveling in a car you are exposed to UV rays
Wearing a hat and sunglasses is an important part of sun safety.
Winter use: Since studies show that the risk of sunburn increases at higher altitudes, it's especially important to wear sunscreen on the slopes. Even if you stay at the same elevation all winter long, don't let winter's chill fool you, the sun is still strong and can do lots of damage to your skin. The gentle water resistant formula won't drip into your eyes and sting when you sweat. Clouded vision from runny sunscreen is annoying on the beach and on the ski slopes it can be downright dangerous. Our moisturizing sunscreen helps keep skin from chapping from exposure to the elements.

A note from Jessica, developer of California Baby®: Whether it's overcast, you're in the car, just had a facial peel, walking the dog…you need a sunscreen! Yet a light and sheer mineral-based sunscreen is hard to find. Many companies list their active ingredient as titanium or zinc oxide, but if you continue down the list, you may likely find chemical sunscreen ingredients, such as octyl methylcinnamate and oxybenzone. This blend is done to achieve a sheer finish—but it isn't truly mineral-based protection. I wear sunscreen everyday and LOVE this one because it makes protecting my skin easy. A side benefit is that it brightens my complexion. Don't forget about your hands, sun and liver spots are easier to prevent than correct!
Dermatologists and the American Cancer Society urge the use of sunscreen every day and year-round.
Hello from North Carolina! I've been using your products since my firstborn was about 6 months old. She is about to turn 2 next month! I was so excited to find a line of products I could trust to be safe, that were a better choice for the environment, and easily found in local stores (yay Target!). Her sensitive skin has been so healthy using the Calming body wash & shampoo and the smell is just as lovely. I've also been a big user of your calendula cream – great for all kinds of things! We use it to moisturize the face and bum, freshen up under the neck with a nice little scent, for little rashes and even Mommy uses it on her face! I've become a huge fan of the sunblock stick and the no fragrance sunscreen lotion, which have both gotten her new baby skin through two years and two trips to the beach without getting any amount of sun! I just had to write you to say how happy I am to find another product sold at my local Target, the Tea Tree & Lavendar body wash & shampoo... which I've just started using this week on my hair and love it! I've struggled with finding a safe product to help me bring my scalp back to a healthy state, after struggling with some dry skin and itchiness. It works great and leaves my hair looking soft like my baby girl!
Thank you for the lovely line of products. Sincerely, S. H.
Hello! I just wanted to say how great I think your sunscreen is! I had no idea how many toxins were in sunscreen until I started to do some research. It's quite surprising. I had found yours to have great reviews and searched all over for it. I love that it is light and how it does not have any added fragrance. I will recommend this to all of my friends and family. Thanks for making such a great product! C.T. - Baltimore, MD
I am just writing to you to tell you and your company how much I LOVE your products!!! I am a Naturopathic medical student and I know how harmful most products are on the market; so I am excited to know that I can trust your company have quality products! I use many products for my son and plan on continuing to use them for my daughter who is due in August! I also recommend your products, especially your SPF to all my friends, family and patients! I just wanted to thank you and let you know how awesome your products are! Thank you!!! K.B. -Tempe, AZ
