We Love: California Baby

One of my favorite baby care companies is California Baby. They made the most heavenly smelling lavender lotion for babies (and I must admit I’ve used it myself too!)

American Manufacturing

All California Baby products are blended, manufactured and packaged in their FDA registered and certified organic solar powered USA facility. Some of their raw materials are sourced abroad (e.g. French lavender oil is from France), but they have their own certified organic calendula farm in Santa Barbara, CA!

Safe from Harmful Chemicals and Allergens

California Baby products are all free of parabens, PABA, phthalates and dyes. Packaging materials are free of BPA, PVC and phthalates.

California Baby products are also free of common allergens such as gluten, milk/casein, egg, peanut, walnut, cashew, almond and pecans, fish, shellfish, soy and wheat.

Great for Vegans

Nearly all California Baby products are also safe for vegans as they are plant based! There are a few products which use lanolin which is an animal product: the diaper rash creams and Super Sensitive SPF 50+ sunscreen. Also, all products are certified cruelty free, as they do not test products or ingredients on animals.

Favorite Products

Some of my favorite products are their lotions. I love their Calming Everyday Lotion which smells of French Lavender and Sage. I also liked the Calendula Shampoo & Bodywash!

We Love: Green Toys

Welcome to the We Love American Made blog! I started this blog because I am always looking for high quality and safe products for my family to use. I also love supporting local businesses!

Green Toys Made In America - We Love American Made Blog

The first business I’d love to highlight is Green Toys. My kids have been playing with Green Toys products since they were tiny babies.

Safe and Non-Toxic Toys

One of the first toys I bought my daughter when she was just a few months old was this cute yellow school bus.  It was well designed to be easy to grasp for little hands, sturdy, inexpensive and most important of all SAFE. Green Toys are BPA-free, phthalate-free and conform to strict safety and environmental standards of the state of California.

Environmentally Friendly Toys, Made in the USA

Green Toys uses 100% recycled materials in US-based manufacturing facilities. Recycled milk jugs are the primary material used in their manufacturing. Also, their product packaging is mostly recycled cardboard and they strive to use as little plastic “extras” as possible. This is wonderful news as I find the little plastic ties, wrappers and clamshells impossibly frustrating and wasteful.

Engaging Children’s Imaginations

I also love that Green Toys are toys without batteries! I find that these types of toys engage my children’s imagination more. I also love that most of their toys are generally in colors that are neutral.

Where To Buy

You can find Green Toys sold on GreenToys.com and on Amazon.com.
