Protect children from harmful chemicals

Children are not little adults: they have special vulnerabilities to the toxic effects of chemicals. Children’s exposure to chemicals at critical stages in their physical and cognitive development may have severe long-term consequences for health.

It can be daunting trying to figure out how to minimize kids’ chemical exposures. One such chemical exposure can come from a variety of personal care products. That’s why it’s important to choose products that are non-toxic, gentle and safe for the delicate skin of kids. 

Here are some tips:

When purchasing baby and kids products like shampoo, conditioners, or any cosmetics, make sure to read the label carefully and look for the following ingredients which need to be avoided.

  • Fragrance – made of synthetic chemicals
  • SLS (Sodium Laurel Sulfate) – also an insecticide
  • Talc – potentially carcinogenic
  • Parabens – a preservative synthetic compound
  • Mineral oil – a byproduct of petroleum processing
  • Eth ingredients – shows the presence of dioxane
  • Triclosan – a banned chemical which is carcinogenic

Instead, try to look out for nourishing natural ingredients such as:

  • Oils – Almond, olive, or coconut
  • Essential oils – Chamomile, Rosemary, Lavender, or rose
  • Glycerin
  • Fruit and flower extracts Aloe vera, avocado, calendula, carrot, mango, orange, watermelon, sunflower, or strawberry
  • Oatmilk, buttermilk
  • Beeswax
