If you look at most products made for babies you'll likely find they contain ingredients that are linked to hormone disruptors, allergies, inflammation, and are carcinogenic in nature. That's because FDA regulations are pretty relaxed when it comes to skincare and other products, so these types of possible outcomes tend to be common.
Babies are the most susceptible to the effects of these chemicals because their bodies are still growing and developing and they don't have the same ability to detox from harmful substances as adults do.
The good thing is there are safe, natural baby products available (and made locally) for you to discover. Take a look at two top NJ makers that specifically create organic skincare lines for your little ones.
LITTLE GREEN CARES, offers products formulated for babies and children that are,
Clinically and Dermatologist tested
Allergen, Paraben, Sulfate, Gluten, Phthalate and BPA Free
Some of their products include:
Shampoos and Body Wash which are mild, tear-free and clean and nourish baby's hair, and skin using Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E.
Nourishing body lotion that soothes your baby's skin and is non -greasy.
Soothing Balm which is perfect for chapped lips, cheeks and dry patches.
POOFY ORGANICS, based in East Rutherford carries a full line of baby safe products, but I especially like their GREENER-THAN-PETROLEUM JELLY, that can replace your toxic old school one. Made with Organic Sunflower Oil and Organic Beeswax. They also feature a HAPPY TUSH DIAPER CREAM that naturally soothes diaper rash and is gentle to babies skin.
Give these natural products by two trusted brands a try. Nothing is more important than the health and wellbeing of your little one.
