  • Creatively Clean Ingredients

I've spent  nearly three decades  in the natural ingredients space! 

As CEO of a personal care ingredient supplier and mother of 3, I was frustrated with brands using unnecessary ingredients to "pump up" their formulas. After selling our family business, I knew I had the chance to create safe, effective, fun products using only what's needed to keep kids safe and clean.

I launched Dabble & Dollop in 2019 with a “Less is More” philosophy. We hand-selected fewer, better, more effective USA-based ingredient manufacturers to create products that are second to none in terms of purity, quality...and of course, safety.

Dabble & Dollop uses 100% naturally derived, plant-based ingredients as well as all-natural, allergen-free, fragrances. Our aromatics make up less than one half of one percent of our formula. 100% of our primary ingredients are naturally derived, sustainably-sourced, and made in the USA. Our 3-in-1 products and our Cherry on Top Conditioner are 100% dye free. Our 100% natural bath bombs use natural colorants (clays, oxides, oils) to achieve their subtle fresh colors.

We are proud to say, we use all-natural scents in all our products!

The joyful aromas of Dabble & Dollop are a critical part of the sensory experience for children - and a large reason we launched this brand. We wanted to tap into the memories from our youth, so it was important that our tangerine smelled like a tangerine was literally being peeled in front of you. Our strawberries, like you'd find in a summer field (and not a bag of candy). Our vanilla like freshly baked cake.

Scent and memory are inextricably linked so we worked hard and sampled hundreds of versions of each scent to ensure that our natural aromas were not only as safe as can be, but actually smell like something you'd love to experience over and over again! 

You may have heard that synthetic fragrances in personal care products have come under an increasingly bright spotlight in recent years. There is a growing fear that if a brand lists “Fragrance” on their label, they could be hiding 10,000 toxic chemicals in it.  But, did you know that the FDA mandates that brands must label any aromatic ingredient as “Fragrance”, even if the aromatics used are 100% natural?  

We only use 100% natural scents throughout our product line and we’ve done something very unique that very few brands do – we’ve listed the natural ingredients that are in our natural scents.  So, while you will see the words Natural Fragrance listed on our ingredient decks (we follow the FDA rules), you will also see the natural scent composition information here on each product page.  

We know scent is personal. So, we conducted a 100 family study before launching our brand and now have thousands of reviews by parents with children with both standard and sensitive skin. We are always most thrilled when we hear customers telling us that Dabble & Dollop are the most gentle products they've ever used!

And now with thousands of customer reviews we've been so thrilled to see that parents across the country agree that we are often the first (and only) products parents of children with sensitive skin choose for their little ones!

This is why we are so happy to offer so many different scents and scent combinations to our customers.  Some people love strong and powerful scent that lasts all day, while others prefer a light scent that dissipates quickly after bath time.  Our scents are often described as mild/medium. We offer samples so that you can test our scents before investing in an entire bottle.  

We are also aware that for some, scented products can cause irritation or exacerbate an allergy.  However for the vast majority of people, that is not the case.  Because we want children to be able to experience the joy of scent, we have gone to great lengths to ensure that ours are non-irritating.  We conducted extensive safety testing to ensure that our products are genuinely mild and that data was reviewed and approved by a 3rd party dermatologist.  We also conducted a 3rd party “Tear Free” study with Ophthalmologists to ensure that our washes are not irritating to the eyes.  We took further care by 3rd party testing our products as mixtures – to mimic the concept of mixing that we encourage – so we have the data to show that mixing our washes together is safe.  We proudly meet MOCRA standards, IFRA standards, the European Union’s standards, and RIFM standards.

With all that said, we do understand that some children (and adults) have a hyper-sensitivity to fragrance and/or oils of any kind. If that is the case, we are sorry, but Dabble & Dollop’s scented products may not be the best choice for your family. You might be better off considering our Fragrance-Free Infant Care products.

No. No. Never! We do not use parabens or phthalates in any of our products.

Developing non-irritating products for kids is our #1 goal. It was critical that we could ensure our products would not be irritating to skin or eyes, therefore, we engaged a third party laboratory to conduct safety testing comprised of a six week HRIPT (Human Repeated Insult Patch Testing) as well as eye sting test for the tear-free claim. We have been thrilled to hear from many customers that our products are the most gentle they have ever used - even more gentle than some of the "clinical" brands you find in big box retailers. Our 3-in-1 products and conditioners are dermatologist tested ultra-mild, ophthalmologist-tested Certified Tear-Free, Leaping Bunny Certified Cruelty-Free and feature all natural scents and aromas that are free of known-allergens. This means that even the most sensitive skin can experience the joy of scent and come out of the water smelling as fresh and clean as a Spring morning. Read our reviews and see! If your child has a skin condition such as psoriasis or atopic dermatitis, we suggest you use extra caution when using Dabble & Dollop (or any cosmetic product, for that matter) as skin when compromised is more likely to become irritated.

I love that my inspiration ultimately came from a moment with my children. I knew that they, and most children, love to “make stuff.” Look at Minecraft, Roblox, and the great slime craze sweeping the country. They are all evidence that kids love to mix, make, and create. I feel that tapping into their imaginations would make bath time so much more fun for kids and, in turn, more manageable for parents. I think it is so important that kids engage with, and feel connected to, their products and experience them in a more meaningful way.

And that is how Dabble & Dollop was born!
