As Smooth as a Baby’s Bottom! With Natural Baby Skin care.
Leading a natural way of life has received much media publicity in recent years and for very good reason. There are an abundance of benefits that explain why many people prefer to lead a more natural lifestyle, and this includes using baby skin care products that have been designed and manufactured in an organic way.
Organic ingredients are grown and handled in a way that’s as close to nature as possible. These products are guaranteed to be pure and natural and for this reason have less additives and processing stages, making them a natural choice for sensitive baby skin.
Products we use on our skin contain ingredients that ultimately end up in our blood stream. Over time, these store themselves in our fatty tissue and organs which can lead to heavy metal or toxic chemical poisoning. The skin of a baby is far more ascorbic than that of an adult, which means the chemical exposure for a baby is far greater than that of an adult. Scientists have determined that carcinogens (cancer causing chemicals) are on average 10 times more potent for babies than adults, whilst some chemicals are up to 65 times more potent1. Therefore, because we have greater access to scientific research than ever before, it’s time for parents to take action.
Some may say, “These products (referring to conventional ones) were used on me and I’ve turned out okay”, but the facts available today show that unfortunately we aren’t okay. One child is diagnosed with cancer every forty minutes globally and this rate is increasing. The latest research predicts that one out of every two men, and one out of three women will get cancer in their lifetime2, and scientists are now attributing the onset of cancer to the accumulation of toxins and chemicals in our body3. More children than ever before are facing autism, ADHD, allergies, and a variety of other bodily afflictions. Scientists are just starting to learn more about the reasons behind this.
Choose natural baby skin products – it’s good for the environment, too!
Growing wholesome ingredients that are free from nasty’s like fungicides, insecticides and chemical fertilisers is more expensive and more involved for farmers, and so the cost of the product can often be greater than that of conventional non-organic products. Many parents aren’t even aware that conventional baby skin care products often contain harmful chemicals, and sometimes companies are so good at creatively marketing their products, it can be difficult to tell whether a product is organic or not.
As well as other important factors, we can now see that the health and longevity of life for both ourselves and our children can be linked to the amount of chemicals and damaging toxins in our bodies. As a society, we’re now in the amazing position where we have an opportunity to provide the best health possible for our children, and as parents we’re tasked with the important job of making decisions on their behalf. So with this information at hand, let’s make natural selections where we can, and give our little ones a fantastic and healthful start to life. There’s very little in this world that can be more rewarding than that!
