Every parent wants the best for their child. Using organic and natural baby products is one way that you can keep your child away from harm. Some products that are considered to be “baby” products are actually filled with chemicals that can be harmful to your baby’s skin. Even products that are not harmful may still cause a reaction if your baby is sensitive to the chemicals.
Today we are going to talk a bit about why it is a good idea for parents to choose natural baby products when they can. We aren’t doing this to scare parents. What we want to do is help educate parents and ease the minds of moms and dads. Because baby cosmetics companies aren’t always honest about what is in their products it is important for parents to do their own research and find out what are in these products so that they can make informed choices.
It can be hard to believe that so many products that are meant for babies have toxic chemicals in them. Nobody wants to intentionally expose their little one to products that may cause them harm.
It is important for parents to realize that just because a product has the words “natural” or “organic” on the label it doesn’t mean that every ingredient in that product is safe. The best way to avoid being tricked by these misleading labels, parents should look right at the ingredient list. It is well advised to choose products with ingredients that you understand and know what each item on the list is. If you aren’t sure if an ingredient is safe, take the time to look it up.
To save yourself time with this process choose products with simple ingredient lists! Pick baby products with short lists that have ingredients in them that you know!
Why you should choose natural and organic baby products
Over their lifetime children will be exposed to a lot of chemicals. Because children are small the exposure ratio and sensitivity reaction towards chemicals is likely to be higher.
When babies are constantly being exposed to toxic chemicals these toxins can actually end up being stored in their fatty tissue! Some studies have shown that this could be the cause of juvenile cancer.
Although, these same chemicals are also bad for adults but of course adults are larger and so the concentration of the toxins is not as much. Small babies have higher chemical concentration levels because of their size and that is why it is so important to be conscious of the chemicals that you are exposing your infant to.
There isn’t a good parent in the world who would knowingly harm their child. It is a good idea for moms and dads to make the extra effort when choosing cosmetic products to use on their little one. A simple glimpse at the ingredient list is all it takes! Make an effort to choose genuinely organic and natural baby cosmetics so that you do not have to worry about what you are exposing your baby to.
