I would like to share a story behind these amazing products California Baby. I found this product by chance when my 1son had eczema at six weeks. Like Jessica I would like to get products that are safe for my newborn and soft to his pure skin. Like her too once I became a mom I started to reading labels that related to baby products. I love the fact that this product is so natural using 100% natural and organic cleansing ingredients such as organic soapbark, wild harvested yucca and super gentle glucosides that all come from renewable and sustainable vegan sources. These all-natural vegetable cleansers are non-stripping, sulfate-free, synthetic fragrance free, naturally low foaming and readily biodegradable (that’s the term for extremely and completely biodegradable)
Jessica Iclisoy (Founder and President of California Baby) Grew up in southern California, spent much of free time body surfing the Pacific waves and many summers harvesting vegetables at a family farm. In her early 20s, as a top buyer for a French fashion designer in Beverly Hills, she was constantly on the go, hitting the Paris fashion show circuit. When became pregnant with first child, it didn't occur to slow down. Some say she sped up. She started scrutinizing her lifestyle when she became pregnant with her 1st son. She took it farther than most! With a mission to raise her family in an all-natural, non-toxic environment, she initiated what has become an ongoing endeavor to purify body, home, and way of life. She became a vegetarian, eating only locally grown, organic foods purchased from her local farmer’s market. She stocked up on organic cloth diapers for her newborn and devoted herself to breastfeeding. She started gardening and composting. And for the first time in her life, she began scrutinizing labels. Unable to decipher some of the ingredients in the baby shampoo she purchased from a local health food store, she consulted a chemical dictionary at the library and found that many of the cleansing agents and synthetic fragrances listed were not only harsh on the skin, but suspected carcinogens.
This is where the story of California Baby® begins.
Determined to come up with a gentle, safe baby wash, she began cold-calling chemists. For the next few years, her kitchen became the lab. She experimented with organic herbs and plants, essential oils, waxes, and powders until she discovered a key ingredient: Decyl Polyglucose, a gentle, biodegradable cleansing and bubbling agent derived from renewable and biodegradable plant sources. Here was an effective, organic replacement for the damaging cleansers found in the so-called “natural” brands at the time. My blends contained no harsh or harmful ingredients, no synthetics, no common allergens, and no pesticides. Scented solely with aromatherapy quality essential oils to promote baby wellness – a concept she pioneered in the baby products sector – she knew she was onto something good.
By the time second son was born, had turned her kitchen experiments into a thriving business. Introduced in 1995 with a single hit product – Calming Shampoo & Bodywash – California Baby® now encompasses over 50 pediatrician and dermatologist recommended products that span hair care, diaper care, non-chemical suncare, bath fun, wellness, and more. Celebrity moms such as Julia Roberts, Halle Berry, Katie Holmes, and Courtney Cox, to name a few, are fans of the brand, which has earned cult status in such trendy Asian countries as South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
As a mother of two, completely relate to the anxiety that accompanies the steady stream of toxic and environmental crises in the news -- phthalates in fragrances and sippy cups, arsenic in talcum powder, pharmaceuticals in our water. That is why she've been committed to sustainable business practices from the get-go, using sustainable and biodegradable ingredients and recyclable packaging for our products. Eager to take green to the extreme, California Baby® is converting all aspects of business and manufacturing processes to earth-first, zero waste, solar power and recyclable systems.
She are proud that California Baby® is the only complete natural baby line to make the jump from a niche market to a nationally recognized brand that is sold in top retail stores like Whole Foods, Babies R’ Us and Target. Believe that her mission extends far beyond creating products that are safe for children and healthy for the environment. She and husband strive to educate and enlighten parents to the simple principles of natural living, adhering always to our founding philosophy: what’s good for the environment is good for families.

Swaddle Love is an entertaining and practical guide full of candid storytelling and heartwarming humour, that explores the history, science, and techniques of swaddling. It's a joyful celebration of babies, parenthood, and sleeping eight hours a night.
In 2003, pregnant with her first daughter, Raegan Moya-Jones began an unforgettable journey. From Aussie emigrant and anxious mother-to-be, to business entrepreneur, and now author of the quintessential book on swaddling, Raegan's path has been peppered with successes and challenges, laughter and tears, but most of all, it has been traveled with passion.
If you've ever been faced with an inconsolable newborn, you realize the value of swaddling. It seems like magic, but of course makes perfect sense: a baby is held quite snugly in the womb for months, and there is great comfort in returning to that. Raegan Moya-Jones is known for the beautiful blankets everyone wants, and now with Swaddle Love gives us a practical and passionate guide -- not only how to swaddle but also why to swaddle. It's a book that makes a parent's life easier and a baby's more soothing." - Peg Moline, Editor in Chief, Fit Pregnancy
"Swaddle Love helps parents understand the swaddle's vital role in helping young babies feel calm and secure – essential ingredients for getting a good night's rest." Jennifer Waldburger and Jill Spivack, creators of The Sleepeasy Solution
"Mother Goose rhymed about it. Hippocrates taught it to his students. It helped a tiny tot in a Bethlehem manger get his first night of sleep. Even though it's been practiced by countless cultures for thousands of years, swaddling has become a lost art. All that's changing thanks to Raegan Moya-Jones, the Raphael of the swaddling renaissance. Swaddle love illustrates what every parent needs to know: swaddling helps babies sleep soundly and for longer periods of time, and fosters that vital connection between parent and child. For the countless moms and dads who have seen 4:15 a.m. on the bedside clock one too many times, swaddle love - and a half dozen muslin wraps - just might change their lives." Shawn Bean , Senior Editor, Babytalk Magazine
Over the past few years there has been a significant amount of media reports focusing on Bisphenol A (BPA) found in baby bottles and other polycarbonate feeding equipment. Polycarbonate is used in thousands of consumer products worldwide and has been the most widely used raw material on baby bottles for many years.
There are many scientific studies that have been carried out and whilst we believe that BPA levels in plastic polycarbonate bottles are below the levels known to be harmful, we have decided to only stock BPA Free baby products from all of our Newborn feeding equipment to ELIMINATE ANY RISK or DOUBT and offer parents the SAFEST option.
For more information about Bisphenol A, check out the recent article from 60minutes:
- Try to choose a bottle and nipple that mimics mom's breast. This will help with the transition from breast to bottle feeding.
- Most parents buy between 8-10 bottles if they are bottle feeding
- You can use silicone or latex nipples. Silicone is clear and odourless and will last longer. Where as latex nipples have a distinct smell and taste and don't last as long.
- Choose a slow-flow nipple for newborns, but have a medium flow ready just in case your baby wants to feed faster.
- Look for an anti colic nipple or bottle to help reduce the risk of colic. When your baby sucks it naturally causes a vacuum in the bottle, so a good anti colic system will vent the bottle and allow your baby to feed continuously and effortlessly.
- Make sure you buy a bottle brush to clean the bottles and nipples thoroughly before you sterilize.
- If you are transitioning from breast to bottle, try to get your partner, family or a friend to give the first bottle feed. A baby is very sensitive to smell and they might smell your breast milk which may confuse them.
- Relax and take your time when feeding, allow for “pit stops” for you and your baby.
- Don't rush or force feed your baby, they need to go at their own pace.
- During these “pit stops” gently rub your baby's back to stimulate burping.
