Seems as if the deodorant has always been the scariest! The Baby shamppo ? Why does this have to wait so long? Just to have the chemical took out? Awful story to send this home with new babies!!
Thank you Christeen

Just like many of the foods that are sold to eat, unless it is organic, there are so many toxins these days.

Thanks for sharing Christeen. What the 1% is doing to us is a crime just in order to get even more wealthy.

Shampoo? What next? Nothing is safe these days. And organic substitutes are hard to find and too expensive for me to buy.

Toxins in baby shampoo?! That's just a whole new level of low! None of this is acceptable, but to intentionally poison babies is just sickening!

This section keeps eating my posts...
This is wrong about sunscreens. Mineral sunblocks like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are safer than >6% oxybenzones! which contribute to melanomas.

I've never even heard of face wash with microbeads. I never buy products made by companies that test on animals (such as P&G, Unilever, Colgate Palmolive, Johnson Bros, etc) I try to always use environmentally safe, non-toxic products. I don't use nail polish or cosmetics. I make my own deodorant from coconut oil, baking soda, corn starch, shea butter, and essential oils (works better than commercial deodorants). I use non-chemical sunscreen (zinc oxide). Thanks for sharing this. There are people who are unaware.

I too gave up a lot of these items years ago after hearing about the dangerous chemicals. But I'm always happy to be reminded of them. Thanks Chrsiteen

Non compero prodotti testati su animali e cerco attraverso le etichette di capire cosa contengono i prodotti. Purtroppo non sono sempre chiari, anche se acquistati nelle erboristerie. Grazie Christeen, firmata la petizione.
