California Baby

If you’ve heard the name Jessica Iclisoy, then you’ve likely also heard of the skin care line California Baby. It’s a local skin care line that has proudly created a number of various organic and natural skin products that are so safe, even a baby can use them.

The company’s founder believes in critically thinking forward and approaching skin care in the utmost organic-driven manner possible. I had a chance to take a closer look at the products they manufacture and I plan on sharing what I have discovered about each of them. I’ll start by saying that I’ve been fortunate enough to come across this brand in the earlier part of the year. Being somewhat intrigued, I made an effort to contact the company. After letting them know my plan, I kindly requested that they send me products to investigate. Having said that, I’ll be the first to admit that California Baby products left me a bit shocked, in a good way. Find out what I learned about the company, about Jessica Iclisoy, and about the various products that they’ve created.

Do California Baby Products Work And Which Are The Best?

I’m going to kick things off by providing some product reassurance. You know, something that most people don’t get these days. California Baby skin care products work and they do so quite well too.

Before I explain what each of the products do for your skin, I’d like to share some company history with you. It’s not all that scientific and fortunately, it just took drive, belief, and dedication to get this brand off the ground. It all began when one single woman (Jessica Iclisoy) was on a quest for a shampoo for her baby. She wanted to get her hands on a safe baby shampoo that was natural, nourishing, organic and effective. Fast forward to today, the California Baby collection has grown to 80 plus products that pediatricians and dermatologists recommend. While some think that these products are meant for babies, they are also widely used by young kids and many adults with sensitive skin issues.

The company buys organic ingredients and advises various organic farms in an attempt to create the perfect organic ingredients for their products. I don’t want to get too deep into the ingredients just yet. I’ll just say that the company operates with the main objective being able to sustain a simple “best in class” standard when it comes to creating non-toxic, sustainable, and effective skin and hair products.

On top of that, California Baby products are all manufactured, packaged, and blended in an FDA U.S. based facility that’s certified as being an organic facility that’s FDA registered. For further clarification on the products, all of them have passed allergy testing. They are free of dairy, peanuts, and soy. Last but not least, the California Baby company does not test on any animals. Now on to some of the most popular products…
