Organic Baby Care - A Healthy Meal for Their Skin

April 06, 2014

Would you consider using Organic Baby Care if you knew that up to 60% of what you put on your little precious one’s skin is absorbed directly into their body?

Science Teaches Us

An investigation by scientific communities led by Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, in collaboration with the Environmental Working Group, suggests that on average, "91 industrial chemicals stay in our bodies because we can’t break them down." As a parent myself, that's just down right petrifying.

Obviously these chemicals, which tend to build up, may cause serious diseases like cancer. The complexity of chemicals used by companies these days makes it virtually impossible for us consumers to determine whether or not these chemicals are harmful. Knowing this, now go read the label on your kid’s shampoo or liquid soap bottle. Dyes. Preservatives. Synthetic foaming agents. Parabens and Petrochemicals. Is that the kind of stuff you want coursing through their veins?

A Free Ride for Poison

Remember, the skin is a porous membrane that lets impurities in and out of our bodies. So some of the ingredients in our shampoos, creams, cleansers, cosmetics and other products are bound to permeate that membrane, allowing toxins to enter the blood stream and organs.

Dr. Mercola says, "Putting chemicals on your skin is actually far worse than ingesting them, because when you eat something the enzymes in your saliva and stomach help break down and flush it out of your body. When you put these chemicals on your skin, however, it is absorbed straight into your blood stream without filtering of any kind."

I've always heard that our skin is the largest organism in our body, but until I was educated by Dr. Mercola, I never understood how important it is to scrutinize with I put on my child's skin, as well as my own. Can you see the reason why more and more parents are switching to Organic Baby Shampoos and Washes for their children as well as pure natural Baby Bar Soap and Organic Baby Lotions
