Mommy Tips

Ingredients to Avoid for babies below Six Months

Dearest Mommies,

When checking the labels of washes or cleansers for newborns, these common ingredients should be absolutely avoid in the first six months:

  • Fragrance/parfum/any type of scent
    (because newborns already smell so good!)
  • Methylparaben, butylparaben, propylparaben
    (yes, all parabens!)
  • Phenoxyethanol/methylisothiazolinone
    (when brands say “paraben-free”, these are their usual replacements, but they’re still creepy!)
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/Sodium Laureth Sulfate
    (because they’re ultra-famous irritants!)
  • PEGs
    (these things can allow harmful ingredients to be absorbed by the skin, yikes!)

To further understand ingredient ratings, we highly encourage all mommies to visit: http://ewg.org/skindeep/

Happy newborn-bathing!
