Calling all mummies (and daddies) out there – are you concerned about your baby’s safety when buying body and skin care products for your child? Have you ever came across products labelled “safe for babies” but ironically the ingredients proved otherwise?
Dozens of bath, body and skin care brands have marketed themselves to be safe and non-irritating, identifying their products as baby-safe. However, how many of these products are true to its claim?
First, let’s weigh in on the 3 most common ingredients found in your body products.
Parabens are a group of chemicals that are used a preservative to prolong the shelf life of your products. They have been linked to cause endocrine, reproductive, developmental problems and skin irritation.
Formaldehyde is also another preservative added in water-based products such as toners. It is a human carcinogen that induces allergy-like reactions including respiratory problems, headache and nausea.
If you find that your skin is constantly dry or itchy, SLS is the most likely culprit. SLS has a degenerative effect on the skin membranes, even at low concentrations. As a known skin irritant, SLS also causes dermatitis, and irritates the eyes even for adults.
These ingredients are only some of the many ingredients that you should not find in your products, and even more so in your baby products. Not only will these ingredients irritate your skin, when used in the long run, they may be detrimental to health.
