How Toxic Are Your Baby Products and Is There a Solution?

I'm betting you wouldn't choose to poison your baby, but what if you found out that you have been doing this unknowingly? 

As parents (and grandparents), we make hundreds of decisions about the health and care of ourselves and our children each day. We wouldn’t choose poison for our babies on purpose, but you might be as shocked as I was to find out how many toxic chemicals our babies are exposed to every day.

Babies, just like grown-ups, are exposed to many toxic chemicals via personal care products throughout the day including sunscreens, ointments, oils, shampoos, and soaps.  Many of these products are easily absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream, and babies are at least ten times more vulnerable to the chemicals in these products than adults.[1]

Products of Concern – Shampoo, soap, conditioner, body wash, wipes, lotion, bubble bath, baby oil, and sunscreen.

Chemicals of Concern – 1, 4-Dioxane, formaldehyde, formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, fragrance, phthalates, parabens, octinoxate, benzophenones, ethanolamines, and nitrosamines.

You Don't Think Your Baby Products Have Toxic Ingredients?

Try reading a few labels from the products that you are using now. Are any of the chemicals mentioned above in them? If so, then for the love of your baby, please throw the product out (ditch it)!

Young Living Formulated 6 Products to Help you Keep Your Baby Safe

Many of us were elated when products were formulated specifically for infants, babies, and pregnant women! Each of the items in this group is safe and natural as well as effective.
