Organic baby products – keeping your baby safe

organic baby care pack

Many consumers are completely unaware that some of the biggest and most trusted baby product brands use certain harsh chemicals and additives in their baby care ranges. The majority of new mums & dads need to be better educated as to what they are putting on to their baby's skin - as parents use shampoo, conditioner, soap, bath gel and moisturiser regularly without scrutinising the label!

By making a more conscious and informed decision about what products you use on your baby's body, you can save their soft and supple young skin from absorbing a range of different chemicals and nasties. Reading the labels and ensuring products are safe will not only benefit their health short term but also impact upon their lifelong health. And if you can't find the information you need from the label, reject the product outright, it's not worth the risk.

The most common harmful ingredients to look out for are:

  • Fragrance - usually formulated as a mix of undisclosed dispersants, such as,such as diethyl phthalate (aka DEP), which if ingested in high-doses has presented as a mucous membrane irritant
  • Retinyl palmitate- AKA Vitamin A retinol & palmitate acid, which when exposed to UV rays breaks down and releases free radicals.
  • DMDM hydantoin - classified as an immune system intoxicant which is a chemical often used in embalming.
  • Methylparaben - is a low cost preservative and commonly used food additive which mimics estrogen in the body, negatively impacting reproductive glands.

These plus the environment we live in, and the way most modern products are manufactured, sees us ingest many toxins and pollutants. Our skin is susceptible to absorbing all kinds of nasties and this goes straight through into the bloodstream. For this reason, choosing all natural and organic products is one way to ensure that the risks are minimised.

The human skin is also the largest organ of the body, incredibly complex in structure and in need for care and protection. Parents need to ensure they take care of their little one's future by using the best products available, nothing added, nothing nasty. This doesn't have to mean buying the most expensive and exclusive products on the market, many natural and organic products can be picked up for a fraction of the price of mainstream supermarket brands online - a small investment to make to ensure the long-term health of your child.

This pack is great value, which means that it's also perfect to buy for a gift, as these beautiful, all natural ingredients ensure that a baby's skin is properly nourished and cared for.
