AHA: How, and when was Babo Botanicals founded?
Erin Sesil: Babo was founded in 2010 by founder, Kate Solomon. A product developer for brands including LOreal, Avon and Redken, Kate was in search of a line of products that both stood up to her professional standards and felt safe and natural enough for her new baby. With more children having allergies today, Kate created a line formulated with very clean, natural ingredients her entrepreneurial spirit took over an Babo Botanicals began
AHA: We love your line of sun care. What makes Babo’s one of the best on the market?

AHA: Often, kiddos are sensitive to scents and textures. Is your SPF fragrance-free?
Erin: Babo Botanicals offers fragrance free sheer spray, sport sticks and lotions which are all great for anyone with sensitive skin.
