Many commercial baby lotion products can contain a variety of toxic and potentially harmful ingredients which may result in eye and skin irritations, allergic reactions and skin rashes ... Some ingredients are even known to cause cancer or other serious health conditions!
Lather your little one with natural baby lotions and avoid the toxins!
Lotions are basically a mixture of water and oil, with an emulsifier added to keep the product from separating. PEG is the most common emulsifier in hand lotions. It can be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane (a carcinogen). TEA is also used and has been found to be a frequent sensitizer and cause of contact dermatitis. TEA, DMDM hydantoin and quaternium-15 can release carcinogenic formaldehyde. Parabens are commonly used as preservatives. Lanolin is often found in lotions (an animal product, it can be contaminated with pesticides and some people are sensitive to it).
It is very important to try to limit your children's exposure to harmful chemicals. Children are more vulnerable to the effects of toxic chemicals than adults. Their immune systems and central nervous system are immature and still developing, which means their bodies are generally less capable of eliminating toxins.
How Safe Are Your Baby Lotion Products?
It doesn't matter who or where you purchase the products from. What's important is to become an informed consumer and know how to spot the lies and read the labels ... We're here to help!
Children have roughly double the skin surface of adults per unit of body weight, so a child can absorb proportionally more chemicals. Adult skin absorbs up to 60% of the ingredients (including the synthetic and toxic chemicals) found in the personal care products used on a daily basis. Imagine the impact on your child's skin and health!
Choosing baby care products made with natural and organic ingredients from plant oils and waxes, mineral pigments and essential oils is a healthier alternative and an important part of providing a healthy environment for our children!
