Let's do a breakdown here.
Johnson & Johnson's baby lotions showed a safety rating of 8. ➡️➡️ Keep in mind that 0-2 represents a low hazard, 3-6 indicates a moderate hazard, and 7-10 signals a warning sign that should be slapped on the product's consumer packaging ⬅️⬅️ SO WHY an 8?? 1.) Dimethicone. One concern with dimethicone, a silicone-derived emollient, is that its occlusive nature (meaning that it coats the skin with an impenetrable layer) can cause irritation when sweat gets trapped underneath. Not only are synthetic silicones non-biodegradable, but they also may accumulate in the liver and lymph nodes, where they may foster the growth of tumors.
2.) Phthalates are suspected to do damage to the liver and kidneys, to interfere with the development of the reproductive organs, and to mimic the hormone estrogen in the body.
3.) Benzyl alcohol. Benzyl alcohol is ok if at the correct percentage. Babies have extremely sensitive skin, there should be a concentration of benzyl alcohol no higher than 1%. Benzyl alcohol scored at a 7. Benzyl Alcohol is generally recognized as safe by the FDA at concentrations up to 5% in adults.... 🚩As if the ingredients label isn't frightening enough on its own, Johnson & Johnson's baby products have recently been found to contain trace amounts of chemicals that the Environmental Protection Agency classifies as probable carcinogens.
Change your game, people.
