Formaldehyde in Baby Products?

Baby care products are meant to make your baby clean, soft, and pleasant-smelling. They can actually bring pleasure to the senses during use. Unfortunately, many common ingredients used to accomplish these goals are harmful.

The reason harmful ingredients are used is that they are inexpensive. Companies are in business to make a profit. That is usually their primary goal. The less expensive the ingredients used, the larger the potential profit for the business.

Gerber Baby Wash With Lavender. Sounds harmless, right? Maybe even healing or soothing? Did you know that it contains formaldehyde as a preservative? In case you are not familiar with formaldehyde, we will fill you in. Formaldehyde is the chemical used to embalm the deceased. It is so highly toxic, strict safety precautions must be used when working with it. It is classified as a carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer as well as a neurotoxin (chemical which is toxic to the brain, spine and nerves). Infants are especially vulnerable to neurotoxins. Even worse, manufacturers do not need to list formaldehyde on the ingredient label if it was used to preserve the raw materials, verses added to the final product.

If asked why the chemical is allowed to be used, the offending companies would probably say that the amount used does not provide a health threat. Does that make you feel better? The body has no requirement for formaldehyde, so in our opinion, no amount is acceptable.

Homemade Diaper Wipe Solution Recipe

Notes: Spring water, distilled water, or any clean water can be used. Organic aloe vera juice can be substituted for the aloe gel. 1 Tbsp organic calendula oil can be added to treat/prevent skin irritation. If anti-fungal action if needed, you can add 1 tsp organic vinegar to discourage yeast.

Mix and fill a spray bottle (glass preferably or #2 plastic). Buy a roll of unbleached (brown) paper towels. Rip or cut paper towels to appropriate size. Spray the diaper area as well as the paper towel for optimal comfort and effectiveness.
