I just wanted to ask that everyone was using caution when buying children’s bath supplies. I know that it sounds like a silly caution, if it has Dora, Deigo, Elmo or Barbie then I figured it was for kids and must be safe, but I recently found out that a lot of children’s products have cancer causing caustic chemicals in them, I have been a lot more hesitant on what I buy and I am encouraging other parents to do the same. I had absolutely no clue that Johnson's baby shampoo has formaldehyde in it, or that Lysol has agent orange in it! It really scared me. I hate that my twins were almost 2 before I found this out! A lot of the cute bubble baths that are marketed toward kids are not safe and can cause skin reactions like eczema or worsen conditions like asthma, they can also cause birth defects in the babies of pregnant women. I know that since we switched all of our products to naturally based and caustic chemical free products that my sons eczema is gone, our dry skin is gone and all the way around healthier, and we feel much healthier and have more energy. If you are wanting the option to switch to safer and natural products that are much cheaper than buying them at the grocery store and delivered to your house, than I highly recommend going to http://www.workingwellnessfromhome.com and the option to get more information on natural products. Just fill out an information request with what products you are concerned about and someone gives you a call to explain options. thank you for your time! I hope it can help someone!
