GOOD FOR YOU, GOOD FOR YOUR FAMILY, GOOD FOR THE PLANET
From buying the organic farm that grows our ingredients to re-thinking the manufacturing process from every possible angle, we are constantly looking for ways to make our products better, more pure and more sustainable. In 2011 we purchased farmland and converted it into organic land to grow our own Calendula for California Baby products. The farm, Flower & Vine, is located in Los Alamos, California in Santa Barbara county.
OUR BELOVED CALENDULA PRODUCTS HAVE GOTTEN EVEN BETTER
We’ve created our own organic calendula flower infusion using the highest quality certified organic flowers, slowly bathed in hot water to create a super-concentrated base which is then additionally enriched with our certified organic calendula extract. The result is a richer, more emollient cream from this trusted flower that’s been used to soothe the skin for centuries.
At California Baby®, we love calendula so much that we scrutinized every step of our process to make it even better and more functional. For years we relied on a trusted supplier of this beloved pot marigold flower, but we were frustrated that they could not provide a us with a NOP certified organic extract. As we are known to do, we took the matter into our own hands! I found an organic farmer willing to grow the flower just for us and we put in place a process to extract calendula in our certified organic facility. Next, by slowing the process down we found that we could achieve a much higher concentration of certified organic calendula flower extract! California Baby® Calendula products now have even more calendula in them due to extreme concentration, which results in higher actives at a lower use %. Trust that we continue to improve the quality of our products and we would NEVER try to cut corners. Our mission is to produce the highest quality natural and organic products possible, and we always adhere to our strict ingredient standards. Next steps – organic calendula flowers from our very own certified organic growing field!
