All ingredients used in Jo Lauren baby skin care and bath products are 100% food-grade. That means the ingredients are edible and more importantly, the ingredients contain less than 0.1% bacteria as compared to up to 30% bacteria in cosmetic grade ingredients. Yikes! That is also reason why cosmetic grade products have to include harsh preservatives to kill off harmful bacteria and mold. In contrast, food grade ingredients are absolutely safe when applied onto delicate baby skin. However, please exercise caution and keep away from babies and children because this is not baby food!
I know most mommies are uneasy about preservatives and their potential ill-effects, because I am too. However, a poorly formulated product without preservatives is a hotbed for bacteria and mold. That is especially true for lotions and creams that contain water as bacteria and mold require water as a medium to grow and multiply. We are blessed to receive help from experts in the skin care formulation field and we formulated all our products without the use of water. After all, water is not an active ingredient and is used mainly to enhance spread or to bulk up products. In our collection, the only product that contains water is our Liquid Castile Wash, which by nature of a castile soap, does not provide the environment for nasties to grow in either. Taking a step further, we conduct microbiological enumeration testing on ALL our products, according to the United States Pharmacopeia 61 & 62, to certify our products are indeed manufactured safe and contain less than 0.1% bacteria or mold.
Nope! To save fellow mommies a headache, all our ingredients are 100% food-grade and natural, we mean it! No complicated chemical names that make your head spin! As though having a crying, cranky baby is not enough, we mommies should not have to decipher code names of chemicals on our baby products! Just read our ingredients, you'd recognize and understand everything inside!
You'd find the best by date in month/year, EXMMYY, on the packaging. Depending on the product, deduct the number of months and you'd find the actual manufacturing month. For example, Miracle Balms have a 1 year shelf-life. If the Expiry is EX1114, that means it was manufactured November 2013. Simple!
Mommies know best, so you are the best judge in this case. Are you aware of any allergies your baby might have? Read our ingredients to see if your baby is likely to react to any of the ingredients. You may have to be extra careful, for instance, chamomile and calendula are part of the Asteraceae plant family, which includes ragweed and chrysanthemums, so if your child is allergic to ragweed, he or she is likely to be allergic to any plants of the same family. In any case, always perform a patch test 24 hours before use to ensure no allergic reaction.
All except for Miracle Balm. We use organic beeswax in the balm as it is 100% natural, non-toxic and non-allergenic.
Absolutely! Miracle Balm is made with organic sunflower oil infused with healing herbs and has been tested cloth diapers safe. That is because Miracle Balm does not contain zinc oxide, chemicals or other greasy oils that can ruin cloth diapers.
As with natural herbs and botanical oils, each harvest may yield a slightly different crop appearance and aroma. It is entirely normal and we have no intention to include additives like fragrance or color dyes to maintain a false consistency. For our Baby Massage Oils and Baby Miracle Balm, you may even spot specks of herbs that have been used in the infusion process. It is all normal!
As long as an ingredient in our product formulation is available USDA Certified Organic, we will use it. The facility that manufactures our products is also a certified USDA organic. However, we do not wish to mislead consumers to think our products itself are certified organic as USDA organic certification is a very costly process which at this point in time, is not a viable option for us as we are just starting out. We do have the intention to attain certification once we can afford it as we understand that it gives our customers a piece of mind. Nonetheless, we are 100% committed to using only food-grade, natural and organic ingredients, without preservatives, chemicals and any artificial additives.

Our ingredients are 100% imported direct from USA, proudly formulated and a product of Singapore. Jo Lauren Pte Ltd is incorporated in Singapore.
