It manages to lather and really clean, without irritating sensitive skin. The ingredient list reads like a fruit salad, and many of their plant-based ingredients are organic.

3. Pipette Baby Shampoo + Wash

While many baby shampoos do in fact double as a body wash, we love this particular shampoo-body wash combo from Pipette because it covers all the bases when it comes to super gentle, clean ingredients.

Best Baby Shampoos PipetteWe chose this as the most environmentally conscious option due to the company’s commitment to sustainability and ethical ingredient sourcing. Most of their products are EWG verified, they don’t test on animals, they use carbon-neutral shipping and recyclable packing, and find renewable sources for their ingredients.

Some parents said they actually wished it had more of a scent (although there are scented options, such as Rose Geranium and Vanilla & Ylang Ylang). Others felt it was a little pricey for the amount you get.

Otherwise, it gets rave reviews (especially from parents of babies with skin concerns, such as eczema or atopic dermatitis).

4. CeraVe Baby Wash & Shampoo

Cerave Baby Wash and ShampooThis gentle baby shampoo from dermatologist-developed CeraVe has the National Eczema Association’s seal of approval. It doesn’t have any of the yucky stuff (parabens, sulfates, and fragrances), and includes a blend of vitamins and ceramides that help protect your baby’s skin barrier instead of drying it out.

This shampoo gets great reviews from a lot of parents, and especially those whose babies have extra dry scalps or skin. This is also a more budget-friendly option that still has clean, science-backed ingredients.

5. Baby Dove Tip to Toe Wash

Baby Dove Rich Moisture Tip to Toe WashThis shampoo and body wash from Baby Dove is designed to be gentle and rich, and is a favorite among parents. It’s moisturizing, budget-friendly, and free of parabens and phthalates. This formula does have fragrance, but there’s a fragrance-free version available as well.

According to reviews, a number of adults actually prefer to use baby shampoo for themselves as well, as it’s gentler on hair and free of many chemicals that are found in adult products. If you have dry hair or a dry scalp, you may have good results using this moisturizing baby shampoo yourself.
