Never Use Vaseline on a Baby (or yourself for that matter)...
Vaseline is a by product of oil refining, you got it, a derivative of oil processing, pure sludge. Yuck.
Live Clean Non Petroleum Jelly is an excellent alternative for any use you'd usually think to use vaseline. Babar Too Co also creates a wonderful multi purpose Baby Balm that acts as a barrier just like Vaseline minus all the toxins on your baby's skin!
'A Family Company' eeeeek to Johnson & Johnson's lousy lie to promote marketing! Many, actually about all of their products (baby washes, shampoos, moisturizers) contain totally harmful ingredients you'd never want to put on your infant. Did you know the ingredients of Baby Shampoo is:
Cocamidopropyl Betaine - yes it is derived partly from coconut oil but what they add to it and how the process it is BAD. It is also considered an allergen in many studies
PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate- awful, contains carcinogens linked to cancer people!
Sodium Trideceth Sulfate- fewf, a salt compound, no worries here
PEG-150 Distearate- BAD! used as a thickening and cleansing agent.' According to a study published in the International Journal of Toxicology, PEG 150 Distearate can contain harmful impurities, including: Ethylene Oxide, known to increase the incidences of uterine and breast cancers and of leukemia and brain cancer, according to experimental results reported by the National Toxicology Program; 1,4-dioxane, a known carcinogen; PAHs, known to increase the risk of breast cancer; lead; iron; and arsenic (Source).
Products and formulas containing PEGs should not be used on broken or irritated skin. Although PEGs are considered safe for use topically on healthy skin, studies showed that patients suffering from severe burns were treated with PEG-based antimicrobial cream; this treatment resulted in kidney toxicity'https://www.truthinaging.com/ingredients/peg-150-distearate
Fragrance- don't even get me started on these allergens and artificial substances
Tetrasodium EDTA- STAY AWAY!!! Made from formaldehyde and sodium cyanide. Really wow. And this is baby shampoo we're talking about.
Polyquaternium-10- best to avoid but better than the ingredient above it and below - that's for sure
Quaternium-15- TERRIBLE. It is a quaternary ammonium salt used as a preservative; it acts as a formaldehyde releaser. The European Union has determined that this ingredient 'may not be safe' in cosmetics. Disgusting.
Sodium Hydroxide - also known as lye.
Citric Acid- synthetic viatmin C, ok good, too bad it's at the bottom of the list meaning there isn't much of it in there
Yellow 10- chemical!!!
Orange 4- oh another chemical because your baby cares about the colour of his or her shampoo enough to want to be exposed to these terrible compounds?!?
Advice? BOYCOT Johnson & Johnson and make wise choices when it comes to what products you are spending your money on and exposing your children and yourself to. Just use a simple Castille Soap. Done!
Tempra Banana Flavor- artificial flavor. What are we coming to!
