When your child is diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, there is a lot of information to learn and labels to read. Those labels don’t limit themselves to just foods, but skin and hair care products as well. Fortunately, companies like California Baby sell items designed to help babies and children with a range of allergies and sensitivities, including to gluten.
Here is a sampling of gluten-free products for kids from California Baby that we like.
Super Sensitive Shampoo and Body Wash
This shampoo is free of harsh chemicals and is designed for those with sensitive skin, allergy concerns, or chemical sensitivities. Hospitals use it in pediatric intensive care units, according to the company’s website.
The cream is made from an allergy-tested formula and “supercharged” with calendula extract to provide soothing relief for dry skin. It is safe for use on the face, body, and backside.
Relieve eczema breakouts, skin rashes, and insect bites with this shampoo and body wash formulated from organic, gluten-free oatmeal. It also contains calendula extract and aloe vera for extra comfort.
Let your baby splash around and play with this “fan-favorite” from California Baby. Developed from skin-friendly, plant-based ingredients, it creates plenty of bubbles and won’t irritate their skin. It also comes with a wand, so you can blow bubbles and add to the fun!
Keeping your hands germ-free is as important as ever, and California Baby offers hand sanitizers made from organic alcohol. They come in a variety of different fragrances.
As the name implies, this face and body lotion is great for everyday use for the entire family and for after baths and diaper changes for your little one.
In addition to its gluten-free offerings, California Baby makes products free from a variety of other common allergens. Their website allows you to sort by allergy, making it simple to find products safe for your family.
