Sunscreens

Gentle, mineral based, award-winning sun essentials!
Titanium dioxide may sound like a mouthful, but it is the master ingredient that makes our award-winning mineral sunscreens super effective. Acting as a physical barrier, Titanium Dioxide scatters and reflects dangerous rays and is NOT absorbed into the skin like chemical sunscreens. We stay far away from irritating, hormone disrupting chemicals such as oxybenzone, PABA, and others lurking in many popular chemical sunscreens on the market. So no worries! We’ve got you covered with something you can feel safe about even as your little ones are rubbing their sun soaked eyes.

We don’t mean to brag, but back to our accolades. We’re proud to share that our sunscreens have received awards for effectiveness and safety from the likes of WebMD, Time Magazine, She Knows Parenting, and other influencers like Babble.com. Cool, right? They’ve also been consistently highly rated by the Environmental Working Group’s Safe Sunscreen Guide since 2007.   California Baby sunscreens are water and sweat resistant for up to 80 minutes of watery fun. And all sunscreens are strictly allergy tested, free of gluten, soy, oat, dairy and nuts (except for coconut). And like always, all California Baby products are proudly blended, manufactured & packaged in our own FDA registered, certified organic, and solar powered facility located in Los Angeles, California.

Application tips – A little goes a long way. Unlike chemical sunscreens, which tend to be thin and watery, our mineral-based sunscreens are thicker and more concentrated. This means a small amount does the trick. To get an even layer on your skin, take a dime size amount across three fingers and dot it throughout the area you want to apply it to. Then use your hand (or a make up sponge) and blend it together! For more application tips from our Founder Jessica, click here

Super Sensitive SPF30+

No scent, no irritation, and no sunburns!
Developed with sensitive skin in mind, this gentle sunscreen is a California Baby fan favorite that needs to be by your side all year long! In addition to being naturally based, it contains no added fragrance (or scent masking agents), and is allergy tested, making it perfect for those with skin sensitivities or fragrance allergies.

The sunblock stick is perfectly portable for purses or pockets, and easily adds a boost of targeted protection with our lotion. It’s also great on “hotspot” high exposure areas like cute noses and ears, or it can be used as a stand-alone way to apply our sunscreen.

P.S. Due to its high concentration and the active ingredient of titanium oxide, this sunscreen can potentially be slightly whitening on some skin tones, which usually dissipates over time. If this sunscreen is whitening on your skin, try our California Kids Super Sensitive SPF 30 that has a slight universal tint making it less noticeable

Everyday/Year-round SPF30+

Your go-to, sunscreen sidekick.
The same, safe and effective California Baby sunscreen you love is now scented with a breezy beautiful blend of lemongrass and gardenia flowers. Use this feel good everyday essential on your kids or as part of your daily face routine.
