Baby Products I Wish I Had

By November 12, 2020No Comments

?Baby items ? – Why be educated on better choice products? Because…

The EWG conducted a study on umbilical cord blood and found more than 200 industrial chemicals in the blood including polyaromatic hydrocarbons, dioxins, furans, pesticides, chemicals from flame retardants, industrial lubricants, plastics, and consumer product ingredients.

The senior researcher stated: “We know the developing fetus is one of the most vulnerable populations, if not the most vulnerable, to environmental exposure. Their organ systems aren’t mature and their detox methods are not in place, so cord blood gives us a good picture of exposure during this most vulnerable time of life.”(1)

??Of course we can’t worry about all toxins, or should we stress about them. But if we know of a better choice product with no toxins, then why not lessen our toxin load?

As for after baby care products, the better choice products also have no artificial dyes, phthalates, parabens, by-products of petroleum, or have formaldehyde releasors in them. Because…. “mucous membranes in the vagina and vulva rapidly absorb chemicals without metabolizing them.” (2)
