How to choose the right personal care product for your child

21:08 October 12, 2010 How to choose the right personal care product for your child

The 4 P’s of choosing a product

Make it your mantra: Always READ the ingredients label

1. Preservative: What’s giving it the shelf life? Paraben’s, synthethics?
2. Perfume/ Flavoring: What’s giving it the perfume/ flavor – Natural or artifical?
3. Price: Too cheap? What’s in it?
4. Pronounce it: Sounds like a chemical – then it probably is.

Top 5 things to avoid in your baby personal care

This list can be endless, but we will limit it to 5 ingredients (check our website for full list)
1. Dimethicone – Petroleum derivation. Environmental toxin.
2. Glycols (Propylene Glycol (PG) and Butylene Glycol) – Also used in antifreeze and deicers! Toxicity is a debated topic.
3. Sulphates: Causes drying irritation and sensitivity. Also some studies find health risks for both men and women.
4. Parabens: Causes allergic reactions, readily absorbed through the skin. Causes human sperm damages, and acts like estrogen in the body.
5. TEA/ DEA/ MEA: Causes allergic reaction, and may form a carcinogenic compound when reacting with nitrosating agents.
