I am impressed with your frugality! DH thinks a bottle a week is acceptable. : I would tell him how much it costs, but then he would know how much it costs!

We use California Baby too, and like the others said, a little goes a long way. I have four kids and we go through 3 smaller bottles in a year's time - that's only about $30. And that's also using it as both bodywash AND shampoo.

Burt's Bees got sold out to Clorox, and quite frankly I don't trust 'em anymore. Cosmetic Database has them in the moderate hazard categories, whereas CA Baby is low hazard. So we stopped using B's Bees.

Does anyone just use handmade soap???

I am looking at making my own for baby if I don't need a seperate shampoo for a while.

Note: I have been making soap for years so I know what I am doing in those regards

I so agree!!!!! It is so sad when the little guys who do good things go the way of big companies.

I run everything through the cosmetic data base now. As an FYI Burts Bee's has a moderate hazard rating (same as Johnson and Johnson) http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/pro...?prod_id=94411
and has ingredients linked to cancer, Neurotoxicity, Endocrine disruption, Organ system toxicity (non-reproductive), Miscellaneous, Multiple, additive exposure sources or Irritation (skin, eyes, or lungs)

Here are a list of hazard free stuff

California Baby for hair - lasts forever - I only use it on hair and once a week.
We use Dr Bronner's Baby on the rest as needed (watered down)

We use that CB shampoo/body wash too and love it -- I think we go through one of that size bottle approximately every 8 months, and that's with a bath every night (hair washed every other). We use sparingly (the bath is really about being part of her longstanding bedtime routine) and a little goes a long way. We also started using the CB tea tree oil shampoo recently because DD (20 mos) still has some cradle cap--it's now going away quickly because of the tea tree oil!

We use Burt's regular Shampoo (1) rating on the skin deep website and dr bronner's bar soap. I really like the shampoo from burt's (DP likes the teatree and I like the grapefruit) We use the regular shampoo because the baby has a higher rating (tear free?? maybe)

No, but there products seem to fall in the 4-6 hazard range I wouldn't use it, but then, I am using Burt's, so I guess I need to switch anyway! (Here I thought I chose something better than the J&J!)

We use Weleda and Aubrey Organics for shampoo. Both are wonderful products.

On drugstore.com the ingredients for the CA Baby Super Sensitive are as follows: Aloe Vera, Decyl Polyglucose (Extracts of Corn, Coconut & Palm Oil) (100%), Vitamin E, Vegetable Glycerin, Citrus Seed Extract, Very Small Amt. (.15%, This is Less Than 1/4 of 1%), Methyl Propylparaben (Of Food Grade)

HOw healthy is this? I noticed this after buying, and don't know what to do now.

I use Aubrey for myself, but it isn't the greatest.

The ingredients in California Baby are the absolute safest, they are even rated above pretty much every other company out there. Cosmetic Databaste.com lists the risk level as "1" almost their lowest rating. They are rated higher than Aubrey Organics, which has a "2" rating for most of their shampoos.

The ingredients on Drugstore.com and Cosmetic Database are NOT the same. On Drugstore.com it lists different ingredients.

Thanks again

I think your best bet would be to see it in store and read the label. I checked their website and they don't list it there... They may have reformulated it, and that is likely why you see a difference between the two sites
Sorry I can't be more help!
