Being a parent can easily overcome the best of us. There are so many decisions to consider when we think of the wellbeing of our children. It can be nerve-wracking, deciding what would be best for our children. But the answer is much simpler than you might think.
Always Choose Organic.
The most prominent reason for going organic, is because a baby’s skincare requirements are very different from ours. Their skin can be as much as five times thinner than a grown adult; and so, they’re far more prone to side-effects from synthetic products and harmful chemical agents. Their childhood is a tender period of growth, where they are most vulnerable to the toxins used to create chemical products. Give your child the future they deserve by choosing to go organic.
Here are some other reasons why you should switch to organic care for babies:
Oils – Mass marketed baby oils contain mineral oil which is a byproduct of Petroleum refinement. These oils can clog the pores in your baby’s skin and make it excruciatingly difficult for the skin to breathe. It can also cause vitamin deficiencies. On the other hand, organic oils are made from natural sources. These oils don’t have any chemical additives and are perfectly safe, resulting in smooth and healthy skin for your baby.
Lotions – Mass marketed lotions contain Phthalates and Parabens, both of which are chemical agents that can cause irreversible damage to your baby’s body. Phthalates can result in liver and kidney damage, as well as damage to their reproductive organs. Parabens have been known to cause severe allergic reactions, even in adults. Use organic baby lotions as they don’t contain any of these chemicals and can keep your baby’s skin moisturized and healthy.
Clothing and Food – Most clothing and baby food available are made from crops that have exposed to pesticides and insecticides. These clothes and food items are essentially poison for your baby. These clothes can cause irritation on your baby’s skin, and can result in rashes. A lot of the chemicals used in the production of these clothes can seep into their bodies and cause long-term damage. Similarly, baby food can contain synthetic hormones that are fed to nonorganic animals. This can severely damage your baby’s body by developing antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Choose comfortable organic clothing and organic food for your baby to ensure they have a happy and healthy childhood.
Environmental Damage – Mass produced chemical and synthetic products contribute to the destruction of our environment. It’s time to take a stand against these products that have led to such a dramatic climate change. Say yes to a greener earth, and support organic products.
