Children are not just small versions of adults. They are growing and developing rapidly and there is no complete research available as to what effect some chemicals may have on that development.
Children are much more susceptible to toxins and pollutants than adults. It can take several months for a baby to develop a natural barrier function for their skin, so parents need to be careful what they use on their skin when bathing, washing hair, changing nappies and moisturising.
Making headlines in the US in March 2009, was a report into the safety of baby bath products*. The report stated that children’s bath products were contaminated with Formaldehyde and 1.4-Dioxane and that these were not listed on the labels of some of the top selling products in the US. The report further stated that with marketing claims such as ‘gentle’ and ‘pure’ the manufacturers of these well known brands announced that their products met the regulations.
