The skin absorbs up to 60% of what we put on it, so we feel it is vital to use only organic and natural baby skin care products to reduce our babies and children’s intake of toxic substances and to protect their immune system
Newborn babies are born with fine, delicate skin that gets thicker as they grow. This can make their skin more sensitive to sun damage and allergens, for example, in harsh soaps and detergents.
Chemicals, fragrances, and dyes in non organic clothing, detergents, and non organic baby products can cause newborn skin irritation, dryness, chafing, and rashes. However you can do a lot to protect your baby from these skin problems.
The majority of baby skin care products contain a whole host of chemical ingredients that you would probably rather avoid.
Parabens are synthetic preservatives which can be found in most skin & hair products. They are usually derived from petrochemical sources & are easily absorbed by the skin. They are known skin irritants & have been shown to disrupt hormone activity & lower male fertility. They mimic the actions of the hormone oestrogen. Parabens come in the form of methyl, ethyl, butyl & propylparabens.
SLS is a highly effective surfactant used in any task requiring the removal of oily stains and residues.It is found in high concentrations in industrial products including floor cleaners.In household products, SLS is used in lower concentrations with shampoos and it is an important component in bubble bath for its ability tocreate a lather.
SLS has not been proven to be carcinogenic however is a strong surfactant and a number of health concerns have been raised in published reports such as worsening of skin problems, mouth ulcers and irritating the skin on the face.
Apart from parabens, there are many other preservatives to be found in your average skin care product. These include alcohol denat, BHT, EDTA, polythene glycol, propylene glycol & many more. Many are known skin irritants & very toxic to the body. Some preservatives enhance the skins absorption of other poisonous substances.
Petrochemicals are the by-products of the petroleum industry. This includes paraffin wax (see below). Petrochemical ingredients include perfume & fragrances, emulsifiers, petrolatum, propylene glycol & mineral oil. Mineral oil is manufactured from crude oil.
This common ingredient comes in the form of a wax or a liquid, derived from the petroleum refining process. Paraffin wax is a grey sludge which needs to be bleached & processed before it is deemed suitable to work with. It forms the base of many creams. It is used to work as a lubricant & emulsifier.
Dimpleskins Naturals is committed to pure organic and cruelty free ingredients to create effective natural skin care products that can be used without a worry on babies and children. Dimpleskins Naturals is still manufactured by hand and we especially like the limited number of ingredients in each natural baby product and the great product names such as Bum Bum Balm…it will certainly be a talking point at the baby shower!
