Learn the reason why we do not use zinc oxide!
Are your products cruelty-free? Dimpleskins Naturals' raw ingredients and all finished products are all CRUELTY-FREE. In fact, we test all of our products on our own family of baby & mommy testers , not animals! We have pledged our promise with PETA.
Why is the BUM BUM BALM zinc-free? What is wrong with zinc? Because most of our customers are cloth diaper users, we have chosen not to use zinc oxide in our BUM BUM BALM. Zinc is difficult to wash out of cloth diapers, and it creates a 'waterproofing' on the cloth diaper which causes urine, etc. to run out the sides of the diaper. BUM BUM BALM makes a great alternative to zinc creams!
What steps does your company take to be environmentally friendly? We recycle! Wherever we can, we reuse and reduce. We package our orders in recycled boxes with unbleached tissue. We print on recycled paper, and recycle our ink cartridges. We also encourage our customers to recycle their empty tins in the blue box at home, and reuse the empty Mini Kit box as packaging for a future gift to someone else! All of Dimpleskins Naturals Balms & Salves are packaged in tins made of recycled materials, food-touch safe. We also make our own products in our own little factory, which undergo a slow melting process-no big industrial emmissions here!
What is the shelf life of your products since they are 100% natural? Our Balms and Salves have undergone microbiology and shelf life testing in a professional lab, for a minimum life of one year. All of Dimpleskins Naturals products are made without the use of chemical preservatives. We avoid the addition of water in our products as it promotes bacteria growth, unless you add a chemical preservative (which we are against) or use up the product within a few weeks. To remain chemical-free, our products are all in a solid balm form, and are naturally preserved with pure, organic Vitamin E oil (Tocopherol, derived from pure Soybean oil). We recommend you take the following steps to ensure the quality and extend the shelf life of your Balm:
Why natural? What is 'wrong' with chemicals? Aren't chemicals safe in a product if it is sold in a store? We have developed a very effective product line, without the use of synthetic ingredients! Dimpleskins Naturals is committed to using ZERO chemicals for these reasons: 82% of children are exposed to one or more known human neurotoxins every week through their use of personal care products. According to the National Academy of Sciences, several factors contribute to children's exceptional vulnerability to the harmful effects of chemicals (NAS 1993):
A child's chemical exposures are greater pound-for-pound than those of an adult.
Children are less able than adults to detoxify and excrete chemicals.
Children's developing organ systems are more vulnerable to damage from chemical exposures.
Children have more years of future life in which to develop disease triggered by early exposure.
Consider the skin. Studies confirm what any parent knows: an infant's skin is soft and delicate.

Who makes your products? We do!! We have our own 'Skin Care Bakery' in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, where we hand make our own products.
What happens if my baby eats some of the product? We use only pure or organic ingredients, all derived from vegetable and plant oils. Below is a list of each of our ingredients, and each is listed on the product's label. The ingredients are non toxic, and most are even edible!
Why are the Boo Boo Goo and Sniffles Eucalyptus Rub not for use on newborns? Both of these products contain pure essential oils which are recommended for children over the age of 6 months. That being said, we only use less than a 1% dilution of these oils in our products, so they are still extremely mild.
What are your ingredients? How can you make an effective product without synthetic chemicals? We want you to know exactly what you are putting on your baby's delicate skin, and for this reason we list every single ingredient on our labels. We use 100% pure or organic raw ingredients, which have not been altered or preserved with synthetic chemicals.
