Your baby’s skin
Many parents worry about their baby’s well –being from almost every aspect, except what is being absorbed into their skin, but now that we know how harmful non-organic skincare products are for your skin, think about what they can do to a baby! A baby’s skin is fives times more thinner than an adult’s, making it more vulnerable and easily penetrable by the poisonous substances present in most un-organic skincare products, including some trusted baby skincare brands!
A baby’s skin is especially permeable – substance both healthy and unhealthy alike get to pass through the skin easily and into the body. Health risks including allergies, mental illness, nervous system disorders, endocrine dysfunction and increased rates of cancer have been hereby linked to the chemicals present not only in our environment but also in skincare.

These residues can be passed directly into the body even after undergoing various processes and manufactured into personal care products, even products for infants and babies. Organic ingredients however, are grown without chemicals in an attempt to provide manufacturers and ultimately consumers with the purest ingredients and products.

Organic baby lotions and creams are generally not as thick and creamy as their conventional counterparts as they are made from the least ingredients as possible to prevent clogged pores and break-outs.
