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.
No added fragrance or scent masking agents.
Face (does not sting the eyes) and body. Created especially for those who cannot tolerate fragrance. May be used everyday⁄year-round.
SPF Protection Level:
Provides high-level protection against sunburn.
Water Resistant. Retains effectiveness after 80 minutes of activity in water or perspiring.Product description:
Our award-winning sunscreen (that's right, we won Web MD's Expert's Choice Award for this product!) now comes in a great new size that's perfect for families. Like all of California Baby's naturally-based sunscreen, our SPF 30+ No Fragrance formula is gentle on sensitive skin and contains titanium dioxide, which creates a broad-spectrum physical barrier between your skin and damaging UVA and UVB rays. The very water-resistant sunscreen is very concentrated—a little goes a long way. It glides on smoothly for protection that's easy to apply. Packed in a convenient 6-ounce tube so there's enough sunscreen here to last you through many sun-filled summer days. Wearing a hat to protect baby's scalp and sunglasses to protect baby's eyes are also an important part of sun safety.
Tip: California Baby sunscreens are concentrated and a little goes a long way: figure about a dime sized amount for the face and half dollar for the body. Instead of squeezing the product into your hands, rubbing together and then applying, try dispensing the needed amount into one hand and use the finger on the opposite hand to scoop up some product and apply in a dot-dot-dot fashion in the area you need sunscreen. Then use a make up sponge or your hands to rub in and to create a nice even layer.
Dermatologists and the American Cancer Society urge the use of sunscreen everyday and year-round.
Benefits & Features:
- Moms, our sunscreens work great under make-up because they are non-greasy and they create a nice "cover-up" base under foundation or powder.
- 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.

I'm writing to let you know what a wonderful product your 30SPF sunscreen is. I've just purchased the "big jug" of it, all 19 ounces. I have SLE, lupus for short, and MUST be wary of the sun. My dermatologist would prefer I wear a lead suit, but... I have tried a lot of sunscreens and blocks, and I have read the Environmental Working Group's evaluation of each brand I have tried. All of them, except California Baby, have ingredients that could cause cancer. Having to use sunblock every day for, well, forever, this could be a problem. I purchased my first small tube at My Organic Market here in Maryland, and am hooked. Not greasy, no fragrance to make me sneeze or break out, and I don't get white residue on black slacks. I also feel protected. Your products being vegetarian⁄vegan⁄cruelty free is also tops in my book. I've also used your sensitive shampoo⁄body wash and really like it. Because of the lupus, I tend to have sensitive skin and I don't need the stuff I can't pronounce on my skin to make it itch. Thank you for making a wonderful product! Best Regards, E.A.
I just wanted to say Thanks for making such great products. My daughter has eczema. Early this summer her breakouts were so severe, that she was developing infected open sores on her skin. Doctors prescribed numerous medications to treat the eczema. The medicines work and her skin would clear up. But then within a few days after taking her off the medication the eczema would return. Doctors ran allergy test ect, and could not find anything she was allergic too. It took about 2 months, but I finally made a connection that the eczema occurred when we but sunscreen on her (even though we used the same brand of sunscreen last summer). After searching online I found reviews on your product, and decided to try it. Since I have bought your sunscreen she has not had a reoccurrence of the eczema on her arms or legs. She did have a subsequent breakout on her face, but I realized that was due to a change in her shampoo. So we now use your Shampoo and Conditioner as well as. We still have not figured out the underling ingredient that causes the allergic reaction and eczema outbreak, but I know while using your products it does not occur. -J.V. Covington, LA
I am writing you this letter letting you all know at California babies that your sunscreen
is a miracle in my house. I bought over 8 different bottles of sunscreen this summer for my daughter. She is 2 years old and never thought that she could be allergic to sunscreen. I tried everything and everytime I would put something on her she would break out in hives all over and it was horrible and SO painful for her and the hives would last for up to 5 days. I called the doctor the first time it happened and I brought her in and they told me it was the after math of strep throat. So I didnt think anything of it until I put it on her again. My friend who is a nurse told me all about your products and I was a little sceptical about it at first because of the price tag on it but when I used it on her for the very first time I was amazed. You are they only product of suncreen that I could find that was PABA free. That is what I think she is allergic to. When she was only a year she didnt have any problems with it until I tried to put it on her again. I went through 2 2.9oz tubes this summer and it totally worked. I just wanted to thank you guys soo much for this product and wanted to let you know that. Please dont ever take this product away from your company because I wont know what to do. My daughter is very fair skin compared to me. I dont burn at all but she has the skin tone that red heads due and I have to protect her beautiful skin. I might start buying your shampoo and your other things that you guys sell. Please keep it on the shelfs of TARGET. I would appreciate it. Thanks Again J.M
My son is 2 1⁄2 years old and has never had much fun at the pool because we could not find a sunscreen that did not irritate his eyes. We tried California Baby this summer and MAGIC happened--no irritated eyes, no runny nose and it is actually water resistant, which I have not been able to find as a characteristic with other sensitive skin sunscreens. He is having a great summer because he can enjoy being outside without being bothered by his sunsreen. I am SO THANKFUL that I found your product--I will be a customer for many years!! Thank you for developing such a great products! Thank you, thank you for making such a wonderful product! G. R.
Hello Jessica, I am so happy I found your products! I wish I had found them years ago. My 2 sons are allergic to peanuts and my one son is also allergic to dairy. He was the one always getting skin rashes from shampoos and moisturizers (that I was using for his rashes). Anyway, about a month ago I was looking for a safe sunscreen with no chemicals because I recently have been reading about the awful chemicals they use in our everyday skincare and came across your web-site. I was so thrilled to see ALL the other fragrance free products you carry... really it is a wonderful line. I also use the products for myself because I have allergies and am sensitive to alot of fragrances and I am determined to find and use safer products. My boys refer to your product line as "california cool". They are 9 & 11. I have been passing along your products to my family⁄friends... when I see them I have been carrying along a few products for them to try out! Thank you so much. D.W.Read all Letters & Feedback
