There’s nothing more precious than your baby’s skin which is why it is so important to know that the products we use are safe and chemical free. As babies’ skin is thinner and more delicate than adults’ skin, they can easily absorb toxins which can damage skin tissue. This is why natural and organic products are considered best for babies.
What to Avoid
As there are so many skin care products on the market it can be confusing trying to find the right ones for you and your newborn. We strongly recommend you read the list of ingredients so that you understand what you are using. The ingredients to avoid include: Parabens, SLES (sodium laureth sulphate), SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and synthetic fragrances.
In addition, avoid anything that is artificial and chemically manufactured including soaps, cleansers, body washes, perfumed products and lotions.
It is important to avoid the above toxins and chemicals as they have been linked to a number of negative side effects including various cancers, skin irritations and allergies and infertility to name a few.
Check for Certification
It is preferable that the products have the ACO (Australian Certified Organic) certification as this will ensure that no synthetic preservatives, toxic chemicals or artificial fragrances have been used.
