Ingredients from packaging:

Purified Water, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate (Coconut-Based Cleanser), Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate (Coconut-Based Cleanser), Lauryl Glucoside (Coconut Oil-Based Cleanser), Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine (Coconut-Based Cleanser), Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate (Coconut-Based Cleanser), Citric Acid (Plant-Based Preservative), Vegetable Glycerin (Plant-Based Skin Softener), Caprylyl Glycol (Coconut-Based Preservative), Ethylhexylglycerin (Biodegradable Preservative), Caprylhydroxamic Acid (Coconut-Based Preservative), Propanediol (Plant-Based Preservative), Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate (Plant-Based Cleanser), Coco-Glucoside (Coconut-Based Cleanser), Glyceryl Oleate (Plant-Based Skin Softener), Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil, Natural Sea Salt, Potassium Sorbate (Natural Preservative), Sodium Benzoate (Food-Grade Preservative), Gluconolactone (Food-Grade Preservative), Natural Fragrance

Directions from packaging:

Apply to a washcloth, your hands, or directly into the bath; massage into your baby's wet skin & hair; rinse with fresh water. Invite the rubber ducky as this makes a great bubble bath, too! To Unlock the Pump: Screw pump tightly onto bottle; Hold ribbed and smooth collars with one hand; Turn spout counterclockwise with your other hand to unlock.

Warnings from packaging:

When it comes to being "tear-free", we did test this product to be gentle and non-burning to the eyes. We first tested on ourselves (employees) and only afterward on our little ones. We made many revisions along with many discussions before labeling our product as such. Our formula does not contain any eye-numbing agents. Instead, it contains a very gentle blend of cleansers and moisturizers. If you notice any discomfort, it is possible that the cleansers are attempting to clean the mucous from your eyes. This could result in some friction (less mucous acting as a lubricant) and, therefore, discomfort. It is typically very short-lived and eradicated by rinsing out with some fresh water.

Product's animal testing policies

Some cosmetics companies have taken People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and Leaping Bunny animal-testing pledges. For consumers who are concerned about companies’ policies on animal testing, Skin Deep reports this information.


PETA Cruelty-free Companies

Companies that join the "Caring Consumer" program of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a leading international animal rights advocacy organization, attest that "neither they nor their ingredient suppliers conduct or commission any animal tests on ingredients, formulations or finished products, and that they pledge not to do so in the future."

Leaping Bunny

Products bearing the Leaping Bunny mark are certified cruelty-free under the Humane Household Products Standard, managed in the U.S. and Canada by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics, a coalition of eight national animal protection groups. Participating companies must open their processes to independent audits throughout the supply chain.

Understanding scores

Cosmetics and personal care products are not required to be tested for safety before being allowed on the market. The Skin Deep® scoring system was designed to help the public understand whether a product is safe to use or whether it contains ingredients of concern.

Every product and ingredient in Skin Deep gets a two-part score – one for hazard and one for data availability. The safest products score well by both measures, with a low hazard rating and a fair or better data availability rating.

HOW WE DETERMINE SCORES

Hazard score

The Skin Deep ingredient hazard score, from 1 to 10, reflects known and suspected hazards linked to the ingredients. The EWG VERIFIED™ mark means a product meets EWG’s strictest criteria for transparency and health.

Score legend

Data availability

The Skin Deep data availability rating reflects the number of scientific studies about the product or ingredient in the published scientific literature.
