Hard to believe, don’t you agree, that toxic chemicals have been discovered in MANY kid’s personal care products?  That trusted, brand name products that we’ve slathered on our families for years would be potentially life-threatening to us all?  Where is the responsibility to do the right thing and advertise the TRUTH?  You put these cheap fillers and preservatives in to make more money for your shareholders, while my children’s health and our planet suffers at your hands.

It’s one thing to market toxins to me, but to my baby?

J&J Baby Products

I was infuriated when I discovered the truth, and want you to know the facts, in case you’re in the dark like I was.

I meet lots of other Moms who are mad, too.  Here’s another Mom who gets it:

Picture of J&J products comes from Daily Momtra website, thank you!

Here are the main products I used on my precious baby from 2003 to 2009, before learning the truth:

J&J Baby Shampoo (Moderate Hazard Rating of 5)

Ingredients in this product are linked to:
yes Cancer
yes Developmental/reproductive toxicity
yes Allergies/immunotoxicity
yes Use restrictions
yes Other concerns for ingredients used in this product:
NeurotoxicityOrgan system toxicity (non-reproductive),MiscellaneousIrritation (skin, eyes, or lungs)Enhanced skin absorptionContamination concernsOccupational hazards

Colgate 2 in 1 toothpaste and mouthwash (Moderate Hazard Rating of 6)

Huggies Wipes – Had I used the “cucumber & green tea” version, it ranks 7 out of 10 and includes some free Formaldehyde, in case you needed it.

Desitin diaper rash creme (Moderate Hazard Rating of 6)Poison Help 800-222-1222

Baby Magic Lotion (Moderate Hazard Rating of 6; Hawaiian Tropic Baby Lotion ranked 7!)

Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Sunblock, spf 55 (High Hazard Rating of 7)

Dreft Laundry Detergent – Here are the warnings on the label:

“CAUTION: EYE IRRITANT. MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED. SEE CAUTION ON BACK PANEL.”BACK PANEL: “CAUTION: In case of eye contact, flush with water. If swallowed, give a glassful of water or milk. Call a physician. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.”If it’s so toxic that I have to keep out of reach of my children, why would I want it soaking into the very fibers of their underwear and clothing?

Are you willing to agree that the quality of your life on this planet would be better if your body were toxic-free?  As it was always intended to be? Seems like a reasonable argument to me.

There are affordable, alternative products finally on the market to help you avoid these toxins.  You don’t have to sacrifice quality any longer.  What are you waiting for?
