Toxic Baby

 One of my missions when starting Joyful Girl Naturals is education. I know moms do not like to be told "Your lathering your baby with toxins" or "You could be damaging your daughters reproductive organs" So, I try and not be so harsh. I will then just simply ask you moms "Do you know what each ingredient is listed on the products you apply to your babies, toddlers, children?"

Do you know that Johnson & Johnson has some of the most toxic products on the market? Ahhh yes the lovely un-natural fragrance of Johnson and Johnson's baby lotion with Aloe and Vitamin E is rated a 7 out of a 10 on the ewg . 10 is the most toxic, 7 is not far behind.  The ingredients in this lotion are linked to health concerns such as Developmental/reproductive toxicity, Allergies/immunotoxicity, other concerns are Other concerns for ingredients used in this product: Neurotoxicity, Endocrine disruption, Organ system toxicity (non-reproductive), Miscellaneous, Irritation (skin, eyes, or lungs), Enhanced skin absorption, Contamination concerns, Occupational hazards, Biochemical or cellular level changes

Whoooaaa!!! Lets just stop right there. Super Scary right? Yes it is. Everyday I have at least 6 emails from parents who have babies, and toddlers with major skin issues. Eczema is on the rise.. Why is that?

From many recent studies it can be due to the chemicals we apply on our children and the pesticides we feed our children.

Please print off  the  Safety Guide to Children’s Personal Care Products here ewg
this will give you a list of ingredient to stay away from as well as healthier options for toothpastes, body washes etc. Please keep Joyful Girl Naturals in mind as well. I do offer our Joyful Baby Line as well as Toddler Tubtime line and for the older child our Joyful Kids line. O.k. I know a little overboard, but hey we like to have something for everyone! I also make my products from scratch, so I can customize products for your child.
I have many customers who has children with nut allergies, so I make their products with alternative oils

I know it is crazy to some that the lotion, baby wash, shampoo they use on their kids can cause health concerns, reproductive concerns, learning disabilities, etc. It is true, and after a little research you will understand that dressing your little ones in green products can make a big big difference.

Gather up your non green baby products, log onto the EWG and check out each ingredient..Have a trash can near by, cuz once you read about the health concerns listed that are associated with your diaper cream you wont think twice about tossing it.

A Green Baby is a Happy Healthy Baby!

I never knew anything about toxins until I got so sick that I thought I was dying. Parasites and candida were my problems and that is when I learned all about toxins.
