Baebody Retinol Moisturizer Cream 

Baebody Retinol Moisturizer Cream - My Product Review on Amazon

High Quality Ingredients with Enhanced Synergistic Effectiveness; Made in a Certified / Registered Facility in the USA; CRUELTY-FREE

Baebody Retinol Moisturizer

This is a superb moisturizer / cream for the face, neck and decolletage for so many reasons!

Excellent Skin Penetration

First, it goes on silky smooth and quickly and deeply penetrates the skin, leaving it soft and supple without any greasy feel.

Light, Fresh Scent

Second, it has a very light, very fresh scent.

Ingredients with Enhanced Synergistic Effect

Third, it is formulated with a combination of the ingredients (Vitamin A aka Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid, Green Tea, and Joboba Oil) that are thought to be among the most effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and reducing signs of aging, according to the latest scientific research in skincare and anti-aging.

The importance of blending several natural anti-aging ingredients cannot be overlooked - just as is the case with nutrients found in food and supplements, the properties of several ingredients have a synergistic effect. That is, they work together for more effective results.

71% Organic Ingredients

Fourth, the moisturizer is formulated with 71% organic ingredients. Organic generally means free from industrial chemicals. Certain industrial chemicals found in many skincare products are known or suspected to be harmful to human health. Insofar as cosmetic and skincare products go, this is an important consideration since whatever is in a topically applied product gets absorbed into the body through the skin.


Fifth, this product is cruelty-free and not tested on animals. This is especially important to me because I could never feel good about myself if I were to use a product that caused pain and suffering for another creature with whom I share this planet with! Thank you, BaeBody for NOT testing on animals!

Made in GMP Certified and FDA Registered Facility in the USA

Sixth, this product is made in a GMP certified and FDA registered facility in the USA. This is another very important factor to me. In this world where overseas substandard manufacturing practices often run rampant, I always to see the country of origin from which ingredients are sourced and the country in which personal care, food or supplement are actually made.

Removable Pump Dispenser

Seventh, the pump dispenser on the jar greatly minimizes the chance that that the moisturizer / cream will be contaminated. On the other hand, I love the fact that the pump dispenser can be removed to get the last of the cream. So often, the pump dispensers are fixed (not removable) and a lot of product is left in the container which is a big waste. One pump of this product dispenses just the right amount for coverage of the face and neck. Use two pumps if your skin is really dehydrated and / or in need of extra help.

Expiration Date

Eight and last, but not least, this product has an expiration date. This tells me that there are active ingredients in this product that should be used within a certain amount of time from both an effectiveness and safety perspective. It also tells me that BaeBody is transparent and responsible.

I really love this moisturizing cream for all of the reasons above. I am looking forward to trying other BaeBody products like the Coconut Milk Scrub or the Arabica Coffee Scrub!


Disclosure: I purchased this product at a discount in exchange for an honest review and unbiased feedback. That said, I really am won-over by BaeBody for its ethical and responsible practices, in addition to the quality of the ingredients that goes into this and their other products.

Chemicals in Cosmetics

According to the EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database, personal care products are manufactured with 10,500 unique ingredients, some of which are known or suspected carcinogens, are toxic to the reproductive system or known to disrupt the endocrine system.

Personal care products include soap, body wash, lotion, shampoo, hair conditioner, toothpaste, mouthwash, lip balm, sunscreen, body lotion, shaving products and cosmetics (make-up).

Daily Exposure to Harmful Chemicals

According to the available data and surveys, it is estimated that the average U.S. woman uses 9-12 personal care products a day and is exposed to between approximately 126-128 different ingredients or chemicals.

Cosmetic products are designed to penetrate the skin.  Thus, chemicals, which are a major component of these products, get absorbed into the body and build up in human tissue, organs and fat cells over time.

Every day, hundreds of millions of people in the world needlessly expose themselves to harmful ingredients and toxic chemicals by using personal care products and potentially increasing their risk for cancer and chronic disease.

Reducing Chemical Exposure

In response to consumer demand, some cosmetic and personal care companies are beginning to formulate products with fewer chemicals.   And there are truly toxin-free brands now available. You can also make your own personal natural cosmetics and make-up using ingredients like organic coconut oil, baking soda,aloe vera, activated charcoal, and beet, spirulina, nutmeg and cacao powder.


This infographic briefly describes give cosmetic chemicals with known side effects.  The infographic also has simple, easy recipes for DIY deodorant / antiperspirant, DIY eye shadow and face powder, and DIY mascara and eye liner.
