Non-Toxic Bath Time
Children are our most precious treasures and deserve the healthiest start to life possible, yet many popular baby brand products include chemicals that are harmful to a baby’s delicate skin. Check out our blog post about Why You Should Stop Using Johnson’s Baby Products.
Morrocco Method believes that your health is your wealth and that starts from the moment you’re born. Compare the labels on your favorite store-brand baby products to ours and you’ll quickly discover the difference between commercial “natural” products and our 100% natural, non-toxic, wild-crafted products.
At Morrocco Method, we encourage everyone to educate themselves about what they’re putting on and in their bodies, and their children’s bodies. Here are some of of the most common ingredients found in “child friendly” bath products that you should avoid:
Ingredients To Avoid In Kids’ Bath Products
|Sulfates||Sulfates like sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium laureth ether sulfate (SLES) are chemicals that give conventional shampoos plenty of foamy lather, yet they irritate the scalp and strip your hair and skin of natural oils that are essential for moisturizing.|
|Parabens||Based on a study conducted at the University of California Berkeley, researchers found that parabens were able to stimulate breast cancer cell growth even at concentrations 100 times lower than the natural growth factor heregulin. These findings suggest that paraben exposure doesn’t have to be high to lead to cancer growth.|
|Phthalates||Phthalates mimic hormones, interrupting hormone production. A 2018 review found that current human exposure to phthalates may have effects on the male reproductive system and in 2008 the US Congress permanently prohibited children’s toys or child care articles containing concentrations of more than 0.1 percent of three types of phthalates. This did not extend to body care products, only to toys/articles meant to be played with or chewed on (such as teething rings).|
|Quaternium 15||A formaldehyde releaser that's a skin, eye and respiratory irritant and known carcinogen (formaldehyde exposure has been associated with leukemia) that can cause contact dermatitis.|
|1,4 Dioxane||A carcinogen present in many baby shampoos and body washes. This chemical has been proven to be toxic to the brain, central nervous system, kidneys and liver.|
|Synthetic fragrances||Usually contain carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, allergens, respiratory irritants, and neurotoxic chemicals. Synthetic musks like galaxolide and tonalide, are linked to hormone disruption. Fragrance formulations also contain phthalates, which are hormone disruptors.|
It's important to keep in mind that these chemicals are, more often than not, found on labels under other names. For example, 1,4 Dioxane can be found through the following byproducts: Polyethylene glycol, PEG-100, Stearate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Myreth Sulfate, Polyethylene, Ceteareth 20. Quaternium 15 can be found as DMDM Hydantoin, Imidazolidinyl Urea, and Diazolidinyl Urea.
Shockingly, some of these supposedly child-safe products are labeled as “doctor recommended”, yet they include these chemicals!
Morrocco Method products don’t contain any of these dangerous ingredients, or any synthetic or chemical ingredients at all! Our all-natural kids’ line is created from raw, 100% natural ingredients; it’s paleo, vegan, and gluten free, with no GMOs or soy.
