I found this actually on AOL and went to this article since it gives the product listing. Kinda scary.

Guess it's going to make me really think about that I'm going to be using on Delaini.

Do you mind if i post this in my DDC?

OMG I just looked to have a nosey because I thought it would list products in the US we dont have. I am shocked to see Johnsons products on there! We use those! And we also sometimes have the kandoo hand wash!

And I have a HUGE stash of the shea butter huggies wipes! They are my fave but not any more!

Someone in my DDC has posted a link to a site that tells you how hazardous a product it and exactly what it can do to you, its a good site

I got a bag of those to see if that they made Patrick's bum less red, and they don't. So, I'd already switched to something else.


Something to remember: Just because it's not on the list, doesn't mean it's not "safe." They only listed the products they tested!

I just read this too. safemama.com is a good site to use for products that don't have that stuff in them. I just bought some new bath wash and lotion today.

I found this out awhile ago and we all switched to Rocky Mountain Soap Co. Products, they are more expensive but they are 100% natural (unlike Burt's Bees & did you know they are actually now owned by Clorox...ew). We love our Rocky Mountain soap.

personally I love the products, i use them myself... and the fact that they do not contain ingredients like parabens, glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate and petrolatum is even better.

I bought some Aveeno baby shampoo and was really PO'd when I read the label when I got home...they are owned by Johnson and Johnson....so you KNOW what kind of stuff is in it....ugh.

I just found an organic store near me that sells certified organic goods.....they carry Nature's Baby Organics http://www.naturesbabyproducts.com/about.html

I am going this weekend !
