Organic baby food
When you begin researching skin care products for your infant, you could discover that a few products are listed “natural”, but do not call themselves organic, but at the same time others list themselves as organic. You might be in mystery about the difference, and what makes something truly “organic”.

Being organic means more than only containing natural ingredients. Although there are no governmental guidelines for what makes up an organic baby skin care product, there are guidelines for organic food, and those same guidelines can be applied to any product that claims to be organic.

Any naturally grown product or ingredient must be produced without any chemicals, which includes any fertilizer or pesticides. Natural pesticides and fertilizers may be used, however no toxic chemicals are used on the plants at all, at any time. Organic skin care products, both for infants as well as grownups, must contain no chemicals, meaning artificial dyes, colors and preservatives.

Some products tout their “natural” ingredientselements, but when you study the ingredients you find a lengthy list of chemicals used in addition to natural coloring, scent or other ingredients. The most common chemical ingredients are coloring, scent, and SLS, or sodium lauryl sulfate, a detergent that could cause eye problems, difficulty breathing, as well as skin problems.

Organic products do not contain any kind of chemical, and any product that contains chemicals, despite how natural it says it is, is not organic and can harm your infant. If you see any words in the components that you do not understand and which have chemical-sounding names, like words ending in -yl or any name with a number in it, you’re likely not looking at an organic product.

Why are organic skin care products so important for your infant? Infants have extremely soft, delicate skin. It’s also extremely sensitive, the same as their newly developing lungs, their eyes, and everything else about them. Small children can be very sensitive to all chemicals, because they haven’t been left vulnerable to them previously and their systems are left open to reactions to chemicals.

When you make the choice to purchase only organic skin care products in caring for your child, you permit your little one to grow into the world without being assaulted at an early age by chemical preservatives, fragrances, and colorings designed to make his skin care products look and smell better. No baby yet has ever complained that her shampoo didn’t smell sweet enough. But quite a few have developed rashes or had their eyes become red when chemical-laden shampoo or soap got in their eyes.
