This two-in-one baby shampoo and body wash scoring 1 on EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database is gentle enough for the newest baby's hair, face and body, but still enjoyed by people of all ages without tears or irritation. Made from Calendula, a flower extract used for centuries to naturally soothe skin (a.k.a. Pot Marigold), it is formulated towards dry, sensitive or irritated skin. Its natural vegetable glucoside cleansers are non-stripping, biodegradable, and grown sustainably. Free of sulfates, DEA, numbing agents, and synthetic fragrances, its scent comes from aromatherapy quality essential oils.


The most commonly cited likes for this product are:
  • Smells great
  • Gentle enough for newborns, but works for all ages
  • Perfect for sensitive, irritated or dry skin


User reviews frequently note these disadvantages:
  • Runs out too fast!
