Hello my wonderful readers, I had been drafting this post since yesterday, but low and behold the powers of the universe must have known what I was up to because an amazing offer popped in my email box this morning. I will share that a bit later!!! In today’s post I am doing a listing of all the ingredients in the three most recognizable baby shampoo’s in the United States. Below you will find Monat Junior Shampoo, Johnson’s Baby Shampoo and Honest Brand Purely Simple Shampoo and Body Wash.
In full disclosure I am a Monat Market Partner and I do intend to show you that Monat Junior is worth switching to. When it comes to our children and what we put on them and in them I am a full proponent of giving them the best.
When you become a parent everything else pales in comparison and your senses become heightened to what your children are being exposed to. Now I have read many an article about how certain chemicals and additives in our children’s shampoos has been leading to an increase in childhood cancers, this is why I sought out the best of the best. When Monat Junior was first introduced to me I was appreciative and thankful because up until then I had been using the Honest Brand which as you will see below has its concerns.
My research lead me to the EWG’s Cosmetic Database. I searched each and every ingredient individually. What is the EWG? “EWG provides information on personal care product ingredients from published scientific literature to supplement incomplete data available from companies and the government. EWG indicates the relative level of concern posed by exposure to the ingredients in a product – not the product itself. The ratings reflect potential health hazards but do not account for the level of exposure or individual susceptibility, factors which determine actual health risks, if any.”
