A child’s health is the most important thing to a mother. A mother is always careful about the food her children eat, whether they have enough physical activity, and try to limit their exposure to toxins such as cigarette smoke.
But, maybe they bath they use every night to bathe their children had toxins. Johnson & Johnson, the world’s largest manufacturer of products for baby care, uses a whole range of products that do not belong near the baby’s skin.
Your Child’s Delicate Immune System
The immune system of a baby is extremely delicate, but if you put babies in bubbles, they won’t be exposed to pathogens and bugs that can attack their immune systems. And if you fill their bodies with toxins and unnatural ingredients, you may be setting them up for a lifetime of chronic illness, autoimmune issues, and poor health.
Unfortunately, the products sold by Johnson & Johnson test your child’s immune system in the worst possible way. They trigger overzealous immune responses, irritate your child’s skin, and leave the immune system weak and vulnerable to other pathogens and diseases.
Ingredients Found in Johnson & Johnson Products
Take your nearest Johnson & Johnson product and start reading the ingredients label. You’ll be surprised to find out how many product names you can’t pronounce or have never seen before!
1,4-dioxane is the main toxin found in Johnson & Johnson products. The Environmental Protection Agency notes that 1,4-dioxane is linked to skin irritation, headaches, drowsiness, vertigo and liver damage!
Quaternium-15 is one of the main carcinogens found in Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo. This chemical releases formaldehyde, known carcinogen that can react on your baby’s skin over time.
Though Johnson & Johnson now claims that they are in the process of removing toxic ingredients from their American products, no one knows how long this process may take.
Other companies have toxin-free products, including Sweden, Japan, Norway, South Africa, Finland and Denmark. There’s no reason that the United States should be waiting several years to do the same.
Instead, you may wish to move to more healthy alternatives for your child’s health and bathing needs. Burt’s Bees makes healthy products, although some mothers do not like the smell on their infants.
Companies that have natural baby products include Aveeno, BabyGanics, California Baby, and Little Twig.
When you know better, you do better. This is true in all aspects of parenting. So do your best, make a better choice and protect your loved one!
