When it comes to purchasing products for your baby, organic baby products should be at the top of your list. Babies are extremely sensitive to everything they are exposed to on a daily basis. Anything containing harsh or dangerous chemicals can cause harm to your baby, whether it?s food, lotions, clothes, or toys.
Here are a few reasons you should consider using organic baby products:
- Your baby?s skin absorbs everything
Whether it?s shampoo, lotion, or baby oil, your baby?s skin is absorbing whatever ingredients are used in the product. Our skin is the largest organ on our body, so it?s crucial to be mindful of what products are being used on it.
- Organic products are more likely to use BPA-free packaging
Packaging is often something people don?t take into consideration when buying food. BPA (Bisphenol A) is a type of plastic that has been linked to asthma, hormone disruptions, and cancer. While the Environmental Protection Agency banned the use of BPA in baby bottles, it is still often used in other types of food packaging. The majority of organic products have switched to BPA-free packaging (after all, what?s the point of not using toxic ingredients, just to put the product in toxic packaging?) You should always check that any food packaging or plastic container says ?BPA-free? on it.
- Your baby won?t be exposed to harmful chemicals
Organic Products are grown without pesticides and are non-GMO (genetically modified). Using organic baby products will give you peace of mind knowing that no harmful chemicals are in the food your baby is eating or on the clothes your baby is wearing. Using organic bedding and towels is another way to ensure your baby is being exposed to only safe materials.
- Organic = better for the environment
Organic products have little to no harmful impact on the environment. Most organic materials are grown through sustainable farming practices, leaving a minimal impact on human and animal health. Using organic baby products can be a great way to teach your children and entire family about the environmental impact of the products we use every day.
When it comes to choosing products for you baby, be mindful of the ingredients used in the product. Even if something is labeled as ?organic? it?s important to do your research to make sure your baby is using products that will give them a safe and healthy start to life.
