I try not to be a huge alarmist and I don’t think that any one chemical alone will cause cancer, but I have been working hard at increasing my awareness of what goes into the products I use. I also have been paying attention to what my nephews use. Do I follow the “it was used on me and I turned out fine” logic or try to see if there are better options today? I do know that when comparing “the stuff I used” to The Original Sprout’s Baby Shampoo & Body Wash, I could tell a huge difference. For one thing, it doesn’t have formaldehyde (Quaternium-15)! Formaldehyde in baby shampoo? Seriously? That can’t be good! Yes, The Original Little Sprout products are more expensive than the ubiquitous yellow shampoo we all know and love, but they are also free of hormone disrupters, parabens, sulfates, petroleum or mineral oils, dioxanes, phthalates & of course formaldehyde. And, the boys smell so yummy after using them…especially after using the Scrumptious Baby Cream. After using it on them, I find it hard to keep myself from taking a big bite out of their super soft skin.
