"I recommend Noodle & Boo for my patients. The products are hypoallergenic and especially gentle for all skin types. They fill a void in skin care for babies' sensitive skin."
NATURAL AND GENTLE INGREDIENTS
Ingredient selection is key in developing safe and effective products formulated especially for infants and children with sensitive skin. The emphasis on ingredient assessment is not only a priority, but an ongoing process as new information becomes available, and innovative ingredients are introduced to the market. Noodle & Boo requires significant data on new ingredients prior to reformulating any product. Since there are thousands of ingredients our chemists would not use, there are too many to list. However, here are some common ingredients used in skin care products that we have chosen to avoid.
Products do not contain:
- Formaldehyde Donors
- Bisphenol A (BPA)
Preservatives ensure that bacteria, yeast and fungus (including mold) does not grow even after a product has been opened. Every product that contains water can be at risk. Like bacteria and yeast, mold can cause serious skin irritation. Something as simple as keeping product in a warm place can jeopardize the safety of a product. Noteworthy, anhydrous products (does not contain water) generally do not require preservatives.
It is critical to safeguard products from microbial contamination. There is not a single preservative that can protect a product from all the different types of bacteria and fungus. It requires a blend of preservatives, at very small percentages, to ensure the integrity of a product. Most preservatives at higher concentrations can cause skin irritation. By using a handful of different preservatives, at extremely low levels, products are protected, but there is not enough of any single preservative to cause skin irritation.

"The fragrance makes you smile."

We offer products with and without fragrance. Our fragrances do not contain Phthalates, Benzene or Toluene and are clinically-tested for sensitive skin. Too much of any ingredient, whether it be an essential oil or extract, can cause irritation. Utilizing the science of sensitization each ingredient is added at the most minimal level to be relevant, but non-irritating.
There is truth in the statement that an individual can have allergic reactions to some fragrance ingredients, both synthetic and naturally occurring. Additionally, allergic and asthmatic children and adults should use caution with any consumer products they use. As there are varying sensitivities across a portion of the population, that have different degrees of reactions, all consumers need to be aware of their personal conditions.
