OUR INGREDIENT PHILOSOPHY

Fewer, Better, Safer

I spent over two decades in the cosmetics and personal care ingredients space, so it's safe to say, when it comes to ingredients...I've seen it all.

Dabble & Dollop subscribes to the “less is more” ingredient philosophy. 


 I challenged our formulators use fewer, better, and more expensive ingredients in order to make this the product I always dreamed of seeing in the market. I don't believe kids need to sit in a bath full of ingredients that are being used as “fillers” or “label copy” to help sell a few more bottles.


All our 3-in-1 (shampoo, bodywash & bubble bath) products use 10 or fewer ingredients. Honestly, compare that to some of the other brands we've all grown to know and use over the last few years!

We promise to use only the safest, highest quality, cleanest, best smelling, eco-ethical ingredients in our products...and nothing more.


The result is the most innovative, premium, children's product line on the market.


100% NATURAL Surfactants (these get you clean)...

Our primary surfactant is made from 100% natural, Certified RSPO (Responsibly Sourced Palm Oil) that has excellent dermatological properties and also foams well. Therefore, we use it as a co-surfactant in cleansing preparations. It is often used in baby washes because it is so mild. It is is sustainably sourced, and produced in Wisconsin, USA.

Our secondary surfactant is also 100% naturally derived from sustainable coconut and corn. We selected this gentle cleanser because it is extremely mild and provides exceptional lather. Made in Tennessee, USA.

Our other surfactants include a 100% natural surfactant derived from coconut fatty acids and made in the USA. By using coconut fatty acids as a starting material, an exceptional, stable, rich foam can be achieved.

Finally, we use a 100% natural sourced saponified olive oil, which is used as a surfactant and for product clarity.

How we PROTECT the Product (these make it last)...

First, we use a blend made from 100% vegetable sources produced in Pennsylvania, USA. This combination of ingredients protects the formulation from developing bacteria, yeast or mold.

We also use naturally derived Gluconic Acid (which is found naturally in foods such as honey, fruit and wine) along with Gluconolactone (a natural substance that mammals use to break down carbohydrates). Gluconolactone scavenges free radicals and protects the product from damaging UV radiation.

Finally, we protect the product by using naturally derived Sodium Benzoate, which offers broad spectrum protection in the formulations. Sodium Benzoate can be found naturally in many foods including cranberries, avocados and kidney beans!

Blended together, these ingredients ensure our product's consistency and shelf life in as streamlined a way as possible.

How we make it SMELL so good (this makes it irresistible)...

Arguably the most enjoyable part of using Dabble & Dollop – the aromas of our warm vanilla, tangy tangerine and sweet strawberry! We’ve custom designed our scents utilizing natural essential oils in addition to a carefully selected nature identical/synthetic fragrance to perfect the freshest, purest notes with enhanced stability and safety. This combination allows it to stay longer on your bath shelf while creating amazing aromas without additional (and potentially irritating) essential oils.

Our philosophy on fragrance is kind of like our philosophy on dessert – we LOVE dessert. It’s one of life’s little pleasures and we believe our little ones should get to dabble, dollop and delight in something sweet. Rest assured our products have been through rigorous safety testing to ensure their mildness and contain no phthalates or known allergens. We are dermatologist tested, cruelty free and importantly, our lab-verified tear-free claim is a testament to how mild the formulations are.

Bath time is a moment that becomes memories for kids, and nothing imprints on memory quite the way a fragrance can and does – our philosophy of using the simplest, purest notes that kids can relate to, vanilla, tangerine and strawberry, bath time becomes far more enjoyable and promises to be memorable as well. Our nature identical fragrances were custom designed for Dabble & Dollop in New Jersey, USA.
