Many moms choose to use cloth diapers to keep chemicals away from their babies’ delicate skin. Do you follow this same line of thinking when it comes to other baby products as well?
There’s a growing movement of concern about body (including baby) products that contain carcinogenic chemicals such as 1,4-dioxane and formaldehyde. Phthalates and parabens, both of which have been linked to hormonal and reproductive abnormalities, can also be found in many personal care products. Unfortunately, none of these chemicals are regulated in the United States. Plus, the ingredients in fragrances don’t have to be disclosed – manufacturers can just lump all those chemicals into the word “fragrance”.
I’m certainly not an expert in these issues, but I’ve been having fun by making my own baby products. And by doing so, I have confidence that I’m not putting yucky preservatives, or other unknown chemicals, in products that touch my little ones!
Here are a few other NEW products we’re working on!
