This Easy List will totally help you find a Safe & Natural Baby Lotion that won’t harm your little angel's health. EWG Rated, Toxin-Free and Parent Reviewed. Another great Natural Product Guide from Blissful Miss. Safe, Loved & Legit!

You’re Such An Awesome Parent!

I totally know you are or you wouldn’t be here looking for a baby lotion you can trust is safe and natural. You're doing your parental best to protect your adorable little angel . . . and that makes you a totally awesome parent.

Moisturize Baby's Skin Without Adding Toxins

What you rub all over your baby's body, seeps into their skin, goes into their blood stream and into their little tiny organs (same is true for mom and dad, of course ... only less tiny). Eventually, enough toxic build up can lead to a ton of different health concerns from brain development to hormone imbalance to immunotoxicity to cancer. Ever wonder why things like ADHD and cancer are so common today? Well, for one thing, our ancestors weren't bathing in and rubbing chemicals all over their bodies.  

Does your little one have a headache or nausea? Could be a reaction to the Quaternium-15 in their baby lotion. The Quater-who-what now?? What's a word like that doing in my baby's lotion?!

10 Common Baby Lotion Toxins You Must Avoid

You don’t really “need” to know this list. It’s why Blissful Miss Guides were created the first place . . . so you don’t have to bother your brain cells with all this scientific jargon and decipher ingredient lists. But if you’re into that sort of thing, check out what’s lurking in some of the most popular baby lotions on the market.

  1. 1.4-Dioxane
  2. DMDM Hydantoin
  3. FD&C Colors
  4. Fragrance (if all it says in the ingredient list is “fragrance” … dig deeper)
  5. Mineral Oil (or “baby oil”, both of which are derived from “petroleum oil”
  6. Nitrosamines
  7. Parabens
  8. Petrolatum
  9. Propylene Glycol
  10. Quaternium-15

What Do These Toxins Do?

Now that you know “what” some common toxic ingredients are, learn what they do to your child’s health in 10 Common Baby Lotion Toxins You Must Avoid, by Era Organics.

It' Says "natural" . . . but is it?

Never assume that a product labeled "natural" is actually safe for your baby. Sometimes an ingredient is naturally derived, but is not safe for the human body (like aluminum in most antiperspirants). And often times a manufacturer will create a "mostly" natural product, label it as such, and then throw in a couple of toxins just for kicks. 

Easily Find A Safe & Natural Baby Lotion

It may seem like you need a college course to educate yourself on what is truly safe to use on your baby. But like I said, that's why Blissful Miss Guides were created in the first place. So busy parents like you can find a product you can trust is safe AND actually works well ... based on the enthusiastic reviews of those who have "gone before you",tried them and love them.

Relieve Common Skin Irritations

Does your baby suffer from one of these skin irritations?

  • Sensitive Skin
  • Allergies
  • Diaper Rash
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Keratosis Pilaris
  • Cradle Cap

If so, any one of the lotions in this guide may work wonders for them. The fact that they are void of skin irritating chemicals, and often full of naturally healing ingredients makes them a God-send to many parents trying to relieve their little one’s skin issues.

Also check out the Blissful Miss Natural Baby Shampoo & Body Wash Guide for more products that may help with skin irritations.

So Let's Get On With It

Babytime! by Episencial Snuggly Lotion

EWG Verified™
Fakespot Grade - A
  Super trustworthy Amazon reviews

Parents are in love with the yummy sweet scent of Episencial Snuggly Lotion. It's non-greasy, great for sensitive skin and at least two reviewers mention how great it works for their baby's "keratosis pilaris" (little bumps that make skin feel like sandpaper). Per one mom, who uses it herself, it's best suited for daily moisturizing, as opposed to super dry skin. 

Highlights

  • Best suited for daily moisturizing
  • Great for sensitive skin issues, including keratosis pilaris
  • Orange Vanilla scent is yummy and not too strong
  • EWG Verified, so full transparency with deeper evaluation by The Environmental Working Group

Amazon Review Quotes

Love this lotion. Another reviewer mentioned it smelled like candy necklaces, and I agree! I think it smells wonderful. It goes on nicely, and doesn't feel greasy. Both of my children have relatively sensitive skin, but this lotion has never caused them to have any reactions.

Love Episencial. It has done wonders for my sons skin. He had pilaris ketosis and it has pretty much been wiped out by using these products...awesome moisturizing ability.

Not sticky, smells nice, and feels great. Since it is a non-sticky formula, it won't help a lot with super dry skin, but its good for the occasional hand and face lotion! I bought originally for my baby and now use it exclusively myself! + Since its ... "natural" and "plant based", it makes me freak out just a little bit less when my baby somehow gets his hands on it and ends up eating a huge glop of the stuff.

Earth Mama Angel Baby Lotion - Vanilla Orange

EWG Rating - 1
Fakespot Grade - A
  Super trustworthy Amazon reviews

This is Earth Mama Angel's classic baby lotion. The Vanilla Orange "creamsicle" scent is delicious without being overpowering. Lots of mom's love this lightweight lotion so much they use it for themselves, even as a daily facial lotion, with wonderfully silky soft results! 

Highlights

  • Great for super dry skin from cheeks to bottoms to toes
  • Lightweight
  • Excellent for diaper rash, eczema, psoriasis & karatosis pilaris
  • Made with healing and infection fighting organic Calendula
  • Delicious Vanilla Orange scent is not overwhelming

Amazon Review Quotes

My little one smells so good now I want to eat her up! I liked it so much that I bought a bottle for myself! ... I noticed a very exciting and unexpected side effect. The irritating psoriasis I get on my elbows during the winter months had all but disappeared! I love this stuff! 
I didnt realize this was a scented lotion until I received my package. I was hesitant to use it on my babys skin. Other products have caused him to break out in a rash and since I am very sensitive to perfumes anyway, I tested this lotion on myself before putting it on my baby. It left my skin silky soft the entire day. Not greasy, lightweight and very lightly scented. I was afraid I would smell like a creamsicle all day but the scent does not linger. I have thrown out all of the lotions I have and only use this one. Love it!

Earth Mama Angel Calming Lavender Baby Lotion

EWG Rating - 1
Fakespot Grade - A
 Super trustworthy Amazon reviews

Calm and soothe your baby while moisturizing their skin. Same formula as other Earth Mama Angel baby lotions, but with organic lavender & vanilla. 

  • Great for super dry skin from cheeks to bottoms to toes
  • Lightweight
  • Excellent for diaper rash, eczema, psoriasis & karatosis pilaris
  • Made with healing and infection fighting organic Calendula
  • Lavender Vanilla scent is pleasant and soothing

Amazon Review Quotes

I got samples of both the body wash and lotion from the hospital..when it was gone I tried using other brands that all gave her dry skin and rashes. So I bought some more of this within two days the rashes were gone. Now I won't use anything else.
Magical! I had allergic reaction to certain fabric and body oil and felt itchy. Earth Mama Angel cured my problem the moment I put it on.
This lotion keeps my son's skin soft without being greasy. The smell is not too strong so it does not overwhelm. Great replacement for Johnson and Johnson.

Earth Mama Angel Natural Non-Scents Baby Lotion

EWG Rating - 1
Fakespot Grade - A
 Super trustworthy Amazon reviews

The unscented version of Earth Mama Angel baby lotion is described by one reviewer as simply "fresh" ... like sun dried laundry. Ahhhh Same great formula as the previous two.

Highlights

  • Great for super dry skin from cheeks to bottoms to toes
  • Lightweight
  • Excellent for diaper rash, eczema, psoriasis & karatosis pilaris
  • Made with healing and infection fighting organic Calendula
  • Unscented, but organic ingredients naturally give it a subtle "fresh" aroma

Amazon Review Quotes  

My child had two patches of dry, irritated, red skin on the back of his heels that would not go away. A few weeks after starting this lotion, it is completely gone.
I try hard to avoid any cosmetics on my daughter, and whatever I do use, is as minimalistic and natural as I can get, so this one makes me happy. What I also love is that (unlike a lot of other "natural" products) it's also effective!!! We have very dry winters over here ... My 2-year-old's cheeks were cracked and bleeding ... Within a day or two of using this lotion, my baby's cheeks were back to silky smooth! I'm impressed by how quickly and completely this worked!
Great lotion, absorbs well, soothes sensitive skin and no fragrances. It has a pleasant light earthy natural scent of plant oils. I've started using it on my own hands, too!

Shea Moisture Baby Healing Lotion, Raw Shea Chamomile & Argan Oil

EWG Rating - 1
Fakespot Grade - B

This rich moisturizing cream is made for baby's sensitive skin, but lots of reviewers don't even have a baby. They bought it for themselves and are in love with the creaminess of it, along with the divine scent. Great for eczema and other skin issues. 

Highlights

  • Super thick and creamy
  • So thick, some reviewers say it's difficult to dispense, but most deal with it because they love it so much 
  • Great for eczema, rashes and other skin issues
  • Smells "divine" ... "fantastic" ... "baby smells like an angel"

Amazon Review Quotes

We love this cream. In fact our baby loves it so much, she eats it. We now have to keep the bottle way up and out of her reach. It smells fantastic and worked great to address her eczema.
My baby smell like an angel after I put this on her, even the next day. We use it as "baby perfume" when are going somewhere. Besides the amazing fragrance...My daughter was getting little tiny bumps on her neck and shoulders and we tried several other lotions that didn't seem to help much. Once we started using this lotion (and the body wash), about a year ago, we noticed the bumps started to fade away
This lotion is super creamy and moisturizes my children's skin like no other lotion has so far. The smell is divine and it's all but eliminated my daughters dry skin/eczema. The absence of harmful chemicals makes it a triple score. 

California Baby Calendula Everyday Lotion

EWG Rating - 1
Fakespot Grade - B  

Calendula is a super hero, super "healing" herb. The calendula in this lotion comes from flowers grown on California Baby's own organic farm. It's Parent Magazine Award winner of "Mom Knows Best Beauty Awards" and gets thumbs up from actual moms who have tried it too.

Highlights 

  • Great for extremely dry skin from cheeks to bottoms to toes
  • Healing effects of calendula is excellent for rashes, eczema, psoriasis and other skin issues
  • French Lavender scent

Amazon Review Quotes

This worked wonders to clear up a friction/moisture rash on my son's face in his first week of life. He'd developed a big red patch on his chin, so I put a tiny drop of this lotion on after every feeding, and it cleared up completely within days. Plus it smells amazing.
Great for eczema! I've tried every natural and not so natural product and this stuff works! Apply a couple times a day for faster results.
My 12-yr old daughter has psoriasis on her elbows, knees, fingers, and toes. I've tried doctor-prescribed steroid based creams, several over the counter creams and other treatments to no avail - she had severely cracked skin on her fingers to the point where she bled sometimes ... and after only 1 week of solid use, her skin looks almost as good as new! 

California Baby Calming Everyday Lotion

EWG Rating - 1
Fakespot Grade - B

This aromatherapy face & body baby lotion is infused with French Lavender to calm your little one, and Aloe Vera & Vitamin E to heal and soothe their dry, irritated skin. It absorbs quickly and one mom says the lavender "actually smells like lavender", unlike many lavender scented products, but it's not overpowering.

Highlights

  • Healing effects of Aloe Vera & Vitamin E is great for cradle cap, eczema and other skin issues
  • Soothing lavender scent. Consider using it as a bed time massage lotion.

Amazon Review Quotes

My son had very dry patches on his head for months. Probably a mild case of cradle cap. He was constantly scratching at his head ... When I started using california baby, his dryness nearly disappeared within weeks. He hardly ever scratches anymore ... It absorbs very quickly. It doesn't irritate at all, even if he has scratches.  
We love this product! It's great for young ones with allergies and sensitive skin. It's not overpowering and doesn't leave a sticky residue behind. It's super absorbent and it smells wonderful. It's not overpowering when it comes to the smell, and it leaves my little guy's skin super soft and healthy especially since he had eczema at three months old.
One of the only lavender baby products that actually smells like lavender. I love it!

California Baby Eucalyptus Ease Everyday Lotion

EWG Rating - 1
Fakespot Grade - B

Fresh and vibrant eucalyptus clears both the mind and senses, as well as the nose and lungs. Great for any healthy child, but one mom loves that it helps her congested little one sleep through the night.

Highlights 

  • Eucalyptus scent clears both mental and physical senses
  • Try massaging it onto a congested child

Amazon Review Quotes

Really helps comfort on those really congested day. Helps my little one sleep through the night. It is really thin, but I wouldn't want it to be much thicker as it's supposed to be a coating not deep moisturizing! Would recommend to anyone with a congested infant/child!
Love this lotion for my son! He's always getting compliments on his scent and I love that I know every product in the ingredients list!
Finally a lotion - love it. We go through the bubble bath way too fast so excited to have the lotion now. Both my toddlers were excited for the lotion too.

California Baby Summer Blend Everyday Lotion

EWG Rating - 1
Fakespot Grade - B

Got bugs? Get this lotion. The product description for this Summer Blend says it "soothes" bug bites. It doesn’t claim to “repel" bugs, but reviewer after reviewer is astounded at how well it does just that. Babies, kids and adults alike are thrilled to ward off mosquitos and other insects with this safe and natural, pleasant smelling “baby lotion”. One reviewer describes the scent as “lemony citronella”. To be honest, not every reviewer is a fan of the scent, but all agree they love not being eaten alive!

Highlights

  • Ward off bug bites with this soothing baby lotion
  • Soothe and heal existing bug bites
  • Per one reviewer, has a “lemony citronella” scent

Amazon Review Quotes

Amazingly, this particular California Baby product makes no claim to repel insects; it just says it's good for sensitive skin, like children's skin, and is non-toxic. The listed ingredients consist of several plant extracts that do tend to repel mosquitoes, however, and IT REALLY DOES WORK. 
This lotion/insect repellant works great. My granddaughter and wife are like giant mosquito meals but when we applied this lotion they did not get bit at all. Highly recommended.
This product really works here in Hawaii!! Mosquitoes have gotten pretty bad here due to recent down pours. They thrive on us!! My son and I were hanging up Christmas lights then getting eaten alive by mosquitoes! I grabbed this lotion, which I had bought for my 19 mos old grandson, and we put it on. Worked instantly!! I was amazed. Pleasant fragrance and not oily or sticky. Safe for my grandbaby too.
 

California Baby Super Sensitive Everyday Lotion

EWG Rating - 2
Fakespot Grade - A

When super sensitive skin is on the line, “unscented” is often your best friend, as even organic essential oils can irritate the most sensitive of skin. This Super Sensitive formula from California Baby has been used successfully by many parents to clear up their little one’s eczema, one teenager's facial acne, and more. And it leaves the skin silky soft.While no fragrance has been added, it does have a naturally derived scent that one reviewer describes as "fresh baking flour or fresh homemade bread”. Another reviewer who doesn’t love the scent said the lotion absorbs quickly and then you don’t smell a thing.

Highlights

  • Formulated for the most sensitive baby’s skin
  • Successfully used to clear up eczema, acne and more
  • Unscented ... which means no fragrance has been "added"
  • Its naturally derived scent fades as the lotion quickly absorbs into the skin

Amazon Review Quotes

My 3 year old has an eczema since he was a baby. This is the only lotion that we use till he outgrew his eczema and until now. I am also using it!
This has been great for my baby with sensitive skin. We tried Burt's Bees and Aveeno and found that California Baby Everyday Lotion (and shampoo) is the only one that doesn't cause him any skin irritation.
Just the right consistency. Absorbs well, and cleared up my baby's dry skin eczema within days of use.

EWG 2


Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion - Fragrance Free

EWG Rating - 2
Fakespot Grade - B

Cure itchies with Aveeno Baby Lotion. Collodial Oatmeal in this lotion helps heal and relieve itchy skin, diaper rash and eczema. But your baby (or you) doesn't need to be itchy to enjoy the silky smooth skin this lotion delivers every day. Reviewers love the convenient pump, that it is non-greasy, moisturizes well and is not tacky or sticky. It is not scented, so baby's sensitive skin won't be reacting to any added fragrance.

Highlights

  • Naturally help stop itching & skin irritation from collodial oatmeal
  • No fragrance added
  • Great all around moisturizing lotion

Amazon Review Quotes

There is something in this lotion that naturally stops itching. I am not talking about itching caused by dry skin. I think it is collodial oatmeal that soothes the skin. When my daughters complains about itchy back due to their tags or long hair, I lather the lotion on their backs and they will stop complaining. I actually tested the natural anti-itching properties when I had mild hives and it actually works! 
I got this to help with the occasional dry skin/rash and eczema my daughter gets under her diaper. Works great! I put a little on with every undie/diaper change and with in a day the redness and itch have dissipated. For really bad rashes, it takes a couple more days, but when I put this on the moment I notice redness, it's gone in a day, maybe two.
I am married to Aveeno baby products. This lotion actually moisturizes, unlike Johnson baby lotion that I find too greasy with too strong of an aroma.

Shea Moisture Olive & Marula Baby Head-To-Toe Lotion

EWG Rating - 2
Fakespot Grade - A  Super trustworthy Amazon reviews

Reviewers LOVE THIS SCENT! Can't emphasize that enough. No one describes exactly what it smells like, but almost every review mentions the divine scent. They also love how it moisturizes, it is thick, not greasy, lasts a long time, a little goes a long way, it helps with eczema and all that good stuff.

Highlights

  • The scent is amazing
  • Thick and moisturizing
  • Helps with eczema

Amazon Review Quotes

Love this stuff so so much. I came across it when my son was about a month old and I threw out all our Johnson and Johnson products. First of all the smell is Devine. Second my son has eczema and this helps so much with it. Doesn't feel greasy and moisturizers his skin perfectly. I'm dreading the day when he will big to big to use it. I love that I understand what each ingredient is in it.
I absolutely LOVE this lotion! My baby girl has eczema and when her skin is very dry this lotion always helps keep her skin moist and soft (I don't put it in her face when her eczema has flared up BC it stings). I always get so many compliments on how good she smells. I can no longer find this particular scent in stores so I got it on amazon this time.
Johnson and Johnson and many others I have tried burn my daughters skin. This lotion doe not burn. It is thick, and lasts a long time. A little goes a long way. The smell is amazing.
