Cancinogens in Over 80% of Baby Products

This is horrible! baby bath

USA Today reports about how cancer causing toxins were found in  82% of  tested baby products.

Some may say that the concentration is very low. But formaldehyde is bad enough that some countries have banned it from all personal care products.

And here they found it in baby products!

Many children’s bath products contain chemicals that may cause cancer and skin allergies, according to a report released Thursday by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.

Twenty-three of 28 products tested contained formaldehyde, the report says. Formaldehyde — considered a probable carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency, — is released as preservatives break down over time in a container.

Thank God for the certified organic alternatives that we can trust and use on our babies without having to worry about toxins and allergens.
