Founded by a mom of two eczema-prone babies, Active Essentials was created out of the belief that less is more. That’s why Active Essentials products contain only the essentials, active natural ingredients that get the job done and lessen the chance for reactions. No extra unnecessary ingredients, synthetics or chemicals that you don’t recognize and can’t pronounce. Just the Active Essentials your skin craves.
All of our products are 100% non-toxic, biodegradable, gentle, effective and help families in need.
"Our story began with my first pregnancy in 2014. It was then that I suddenly became conscious of everything I was putting in and on my body. While searching for skincare, I couldn’t find any products that I felt comfortable putting on my new baby’s delicate skin. Everything was full of ingredients I couldn’t even pronounce. Upon researching some of these questionable ingredients, I found that some of them were chemicals linked to health conditions such as eczema, allergies, hormonal disruptions, reproductive issues, cancer, and many other concerns. On top of that, I then learned that the FDA doesn’t even regulate skincare or skincare product labels! It was with this discovery that Active Essentials was born. Shopping for safe and natural products in an industry full of sneaky marketing tactics can be very confusing and time consuming. We shouldn’t have to Google every ingredient in our baby’s skincare products to make sure they are safe. So we’ve taken the guess-work out of it by providing safe, effective and gentle products with ingredients you recognize and can pronounce. I use AE products on both of my babies everyday and I sincerely hope you love them as much as we do."
"Since my first born was my inspiration for creating Active Essentials, it only seemed fitting that she be apart of its design. Our paint smear design was inspired by her fun, free-spirited personality and her love for painting with watercolors."
