What parent would want to harm their newborn baby? Parents who use conventional baby wash and lotions on their newborns are doing just that. There are a number of chemicals and toxins in shampoos, conditioners, body wash and lotions that can harm baby now and in the future. It is important for parents these days to read ingredient labels and watch what they put on their babies. Everything that is rubbed onto baby's skin is absorbed by the skin and eventually ends of up baby's blood stream. Following is a portion of the list of ingredients to avoid and the reasons why they are considered dangerous for babys as well as adults.

Phthalates is a chemical found in most cosmetics usually in the fragrance of the product, as well as the plastic packaging. In many products Phthalates is not even listed as one of the ingredients in products because it's in the fragrance. Best way to avoid using products that may contain Phthalates is to use shampoos and wash that are listed as fragrance free. Many shampoos and washes listed as having "natural oil" fragrances do not contain the hazardess chemical, Phthalate.

Parabens are another hazardess chemical to avoid in baby's wash. Parabens are used in cosmetics as a preservative. In some research, companys claim that parabens are safe for use becuase of its natural origins. However, with extensive research scientists have found that parabens are linked to breast cancer. Because parabens are found in baby wash and used on baby's skin, these are then absorbed into baby's blood stream. For those babies whose parents use products where Parabens are an ingredient the paraben can be detected in baby's urine. Parabens can also cause skin reactions in some individuals, since babys have sensitive skin it is best to avoid parabens are babys skin.

These are just two chemicals in a long list of chemicals to avoid in baby's shampoo, washes and lotions. It's important for parents to take the time to research these chemicals as well as study the ingredients on baby's products that are used on their baby. Looking at a label that says "All Natural" or "Organic" does not mean there are not harmful chemicals in the product. Parents need to be aware of the ingredients and what is being used on their child!
