From its humble, homemade beginnings in founder & developer Jessica Iclisoy’s living room, California Baby has come a long way. The natural skincare line with organic, sustainable ingredients continues to lead the natural baby skin care category in natural and mass markets. California Baby works with leading raw material suppliers to create and pioneer safe, new and improved green ingredients. True to their toxin-free, sustainability-focused roots, they steer clear of Diethanolamine (DEA), sulfates, dyes, numbing agents, and ingredients that can trigger allergies in young ones or chemically sensitive adults, including synthetic fragrances, dairy, soy, peanuts and gluten. Their strict standards ensure that all of products are CA Prop 65 compliant, which means they contain no carcinogens such as 1-4 Dioxane or phthalates. All essential oils are third party tested for purity.

Efforts to protect future generations extend beyond their Los Angeles facilities. An active member of the Organic Trade Association, California Baby® serves on a task force committee to recommend organic and safe cosmetics standards in the cosmetics industry. They also collaborate with leading groups and companies to initiate congressional action that will establish federal legislation demanding safe cosmetics. The company believes that their mission extends far beyond creating products that are safe for children and healthy for the environment. They strive to educate and enlighten parents to the simple principles of natural living, adhering always to their founding philosophy: what’s good for the environment is good for families.

Kelly Teegarden Organics: Kelly Teegarden is a stage III Thyroid Cancer survivor that was mis- diagnosed at the age of 38, with three babies under age 5. She had a 50% chance of survival and a 50% chance of being mute. Her prayer was, “If you give me another chance to live and raise my babies, I will do something to make a difference in the world.” After thousands of hours researching why she could have had cancer in at all, Kelly learned about the toxic chemicals in many of the products and food she used. She decided to create a non-toxic skin care and cosmetic line without harmful toxic ingredients. KTO’s goal is to educate women to make choices that prevent chronic exposure to cancer-causing and endocrine disrupting ingredients.
