Natural Baby Sunscreen SPF 30 Review by Destiny Mawson

Glow Facial Oil
California Pure Naturals
13834 Bettencourt St.
Cerritos, CA 90703

California Pure Naturals makes a variety of products for baby, face, hair, and skin using at least 70% organic ingredients. All their products are sulfate-free and do not contain any phthalates, ethoxylates, artificial dyes or fragrances. Their products are also vegan and gluten-free. I reviewed their Natural Baby Sunscreen SPF 30 and their Glow Facial Oil.

California Pure Naturals Natural Baby Sunscreen SPF 30 comes in a 4 Fl. Oz. tube with a happy bunny on the front. It sells for $12.99. The active ingredient is Non-Nano Uncoated Zinc Oxide. It also contains cranberry and rosehip botanical oils.

Because the sunscreen uses non-nano uncoated zinc oxide, it will not enter the bloodstream, making it the safest option to use on delicate baby skin. The cranberry and rosehip botanical oils are rich in antioxidants, which in addition to helping neutralize free radicals also gave the sunscreen a pleasant scent.

We used this sunscreen on all ages of our family from babies to adults. It worked well at protecting our skin from sunburn even on days with extreme heat warnings. It stayed on well during swimming and other activities. It was perfect for my baby’s delicate skin. Our family stayed sunburn free while using Natural Baby Sunscreen.

California Pure Naturals Glow Facial Oil comes in a 1 Fl. Oz bottle with a dropper. It sells for $23.99. It is a blackberry antioxidant complex which contains organic blackberry, organic kiwi, organic pomegranate, and organic grape. It also uses argan and borage oils to help hydrate and illuminate your skin.

I used the Glow Facial Oil morning and evening. The oil is lightweight and absorbed well. I was able to use it under moisturizer and foundation without it making my skin feel extra oily or heavy. I loved the way it made my face feel so soft after applying. It also worked well for hydrating my skin. In fact, I only kept my morning moisturizer because it also contains an SPF, but I did not feel the need to apply moisturizer in the evening as it left my skin feeling soft and youthful.

I would recommend both products from California Pure Naturals. Their Natural Baby Sunscreen SPF 30 is good at protecting delicate baby skin from the sun’s harmful rays and without all the harmful chemicals is safe to use. The Glow Facial Oil would be a welcome addition to any skincare regime giving your face a soft and healthy feeling.
