The most important thing to mothers is the health of their children. They are careful about the food they eat to have enough physical activity and try to limit their exposure to toxins such as cigarette smoke.

But they might be bathing their children in toxins every night. Johnson & Johnson, the world’s largest manufacturer of products for baby care uses a whole range of products that do not belong near the baby’s skin. Find out what Johnson & Johnson products can and do to your baby’s skin and immune system.

Your Child’s Delicate Immune System

The immune system of a baby is extremely delicate, but if you put babies in bubbles, they won’t get exposed to pathogens and bugs that can work their immune systems and help their systems grow. And if you flood their bodies with toxins and unnatural ingredients, you may be setting them up for a lifetime of chronic illness, autoimmune issues, and poor health.

Unfortunately, the products sold by Johnson & Johnson test your child’s immune system in the worst possible way. They trigger overzealous immune responses, irritate your child’s skin, and leave the immune system weak and vulnerable to other pathogens and diseases.

Ingredients Found in Johnson & Johnson Products

Grab your nearest Johnson & Johnson product and start reading the ingredients label. You’ll be surprised to find out how many product names you can’t pronounce or have never seen before.

1,4-dioxane is the other main toxin found in Johnson & Johnson products. The Environmental Protection Agency notes that 1,4-dioxane is linked to skin irritation, headaches, drowsiness, vertigo, and liver damage.

Quaternium-15 is one of the main carcinogens found in Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo. This chemical releases formaldehyde, a known carcinogen that can react on your baby’s skin over time.

Healthy Alternatives

Though Johnson & Johnson now claims that they are in the process of removing toxic ingredients from their American products, no one knows how long this process may take. Furthermore, do you want to continue financially supporting a company that has shown a callous disregard for your family’s health?

Other companies have toxin-free Johnson & Johnson products, including Sweden, Japan, Norway, South Africa, Finland, and Denmark. There’s no reason that the United States should be waiting years for the same.

Instead, you may wish to move to more healthy alternatives for your child’s health and bathing needs. Burt’s Bees makes healthy products, although some do not like the smell of their infants.

Companies that have natural baby products include Aveeno, BabyGanics, California Baby, and Little Twig. Get samples and see what’s best for your baby.

When you know better, you do better. This is true in all aspects of parenting. Now that you know what Johnson & Johnson is doing to your baby, make a better choice and protect your loved one.
