I've spent over two 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.

Are your products all-natural? Do you use any dyes?
Dabble & Dollop uses 100% naturally derived, plant-based ingredients as well as 100% natural oils and 100% non-toxic, allergen-free, nature identical aromatics. 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.
Do you use fragrance in your products?
The joyful aromas of Dabble & Dollop are a critical part of the sensory experience for children. For example, 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 and we love that. But we also understand that synthetic fragrance in personal care products has come under an increasingly bright spotlight in recent years.
With 20+ years of experience in the cosmetics ingredients industry, we consciously selected natural oils and a blend of non-toxic, allergen-free nature identicals to drive our aromas. Why? With only essential oils we would have sacrificed the authenticity of our fresh aromas, and furthermore would have seen a degradation of color and product stability over time. Additionally, products overloaded with essential oils can contain more allergens, can be irritating, and aren’t always sustainably sourced.
Our 3-in-1 products and conditioners are dermatologist tested ultra-mild, ophthalmologist-tested Certified Tear-Free, Leaping Bunny Certified Cruelty-Free and feature our innovative SmartScent™ ingredient. SmartScent™ utilizes a blend of natural oils and nature identical compounds (formulated to the strictest European Union standards for quality and purity) and is 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! Our formulas meet current IFRA standards, are phthalate free, prop 65 compliant, vegan and non-GMO. Our aromatics do not contain any of the 186 banned or restricted compounds by RIFM (Research Institute of Fragrance Materials).
We conducted a 100 family study pre-launch and have many reviews by parents with children with sensitive skin. We have yet to see any abnormal skin responses, and in many cases, parents have said that Dabble & Dollop was the most gentle products they've ever used! And now with nearly 1,000 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!
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 may not be the best choice for your family.
Does Dabble & Dollop use parabens or phthalates?
No. We do not use parabens or phthalates in any of our products.
Are your products non-irritating?
Yes. 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 frommany 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 our innovative SmartScent™ ingredient. SmartScent™ utilizes a blend of natural oils and nature identical compounds (formulated to the strictest European Union standards for quality and purity) and is 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.
