Toxins in baby wipes
Babies are extra sensitive to their environments with delicate, sensitive skin and brand new immune systems that haven’t built up tolerances to the type of hazards and toxins grown-up bodies easily dispel. And yet so many brands of baby wipes contain ingredients that you wouldn’t feel comfortably putting on adult skin, let alone your children’s. Some key ones to look out for include:
- Harsh foaming agents like SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) as these strip the skin of its protective layer and can make it a permeable pathway for the absorption of toxins into the body
- Preservatives such as phenoxyethanol, SHG
- Isopropyl myristate
- Propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol (PEG)
- Imidazolidinyl urea and other formaldehyde releasing preservatives
It’s worth knowing that many wipes are made with a synthetic cloth, which does not biodegrade, or may be chlorine bleached. Organic cotton cloths are stronger, more durable, free from pesticide residues and 100% biodegradable.
Since 1989, women around the world have chosen these high quality, organic and natural feminine hygiene products with confidence. Soft, certified organic cotton and totally chlorine free, plastic free, biodegradable materials means Natracare only leaves a soft footprint on the earth.
Using high quality natural materials makes Natracare products extremely soft on your skin, and because they are biodegradable, gentle on the planet too. Natracare products are free from all ingredients commonly found in conventional feminine hygiene products; plastics, polyacrylate superabsorbents, petroleum derivatives, synthetic ingredients, latex and perfumes. Instead they use certified organic 100% cotton and sustainably-sourced natural, plant based materials. These natural ingredients are highly effective in locking away menstrual fluid and the absence of synthetic materials ensures your skin is able to breathe and stay dry. Natracare wipes are free from synthetics, petroleum derivatives, alcohol, parabens, formaldehyde and phenoxyethanol, many of which have been linked to skin irritation.
Their products are made with everyone in mind, including animals, birds, bees and insects. Natracare founder, Susie Hewson, is a vegetarian and supporter of PETA, so it’s no surprise that they do everything possible to protect wildlife. You can rest assured that all Natracare products are:
Free from animal testing. Neither the raw materials nor the finished products are ever tested on animals. Dermatological testing is always conducted on human volunteers under controlled procedures.
Free from all animal ingredients or raw materials processed with any animal products.
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians with certification from the Vegetarian Society.
Looking after wildlife in the fields where cotton is grown. It’s estimated that pesticides kill 67 million birds each year in the USA alone, so by choosing organic you protect wildlife from the damaging effects of these toxic chemicals.
When Susie Hewson developed Natracare in the 1980s, she spent years researching the very best raw materials for the job. As well as important health considerations and ensuring that the products worked, Susie endeavoured to find materials that were:
Ethical – protecting the livelihood, homes and health of workers and communities where crops are made.
Environmental – looking after the soil, water and air and ensuring low carbon dependency.
Animal-Friendly – not disrupting the habitats or health of animals, birds, bees and insects who make up ecosystems that are crucial for the planet’s wellbeing.
Using certified organic cotton and accredited sustainable forestry ensures that Natracare meets high sustainable standards.
Natracare stands for more than just organic and natural products. They are an award winning, ethical company committed to offering organic and natural solutions for personal health care that leave a soft footprint on the earth. For all of their feminine hygiene and baby care products, Natracare uses only organic and natural materials that meet the highest organic, environmental and biodegradable standards, sourced from raw material producers that manage and monitor resources respectfully and share their principles.
“Back in 1989, I saw a documentary about the growing danger to human health and the environment of dioxin pollution from pulping industries with the chlorine bleaching of paper products. What made me especially angry was the unconcerned response of the international feminine hygiene brands. I was so appalled that my immediate response was to research and develop an alternative that respected women’s bodies and our planet. Natracare was the world’s first alternative to conventionally produced feminine hygiene, including the world’s first certified organic cotton tampons and totally chlorine-free sanitary pads and panty liners.”
