Choose Natural Baby Soap for Safe Suds
Natural Baby Shampoo
for your little one, natural baby soap is a healthier choice for bath time. Commercial soaps contain chemicals like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Quaternium-15, Fragrances, Parabens and Phthalates. These chemicals easily absorb into baby's porous skin and expose their kidneys to needless toxins.
The EWG (Environmental Working Group) did a recent study of the chemicals that babies are regularly exposed to in commercial baby products. A WHOPPING 61 CHEMICALS were found to be in products that mom's used on their babies on a daily basis!! That's 61 chemicals that a baby needs to metabolize each day!....
And to add to the issue, many of these chemicals have not been tested by the government to ensure safety for use in products.

Natural baby soap contains ingredients like Coconut Oils, Lavender, Lemon, Tea Tree, Aloe and Buttermilk that will naturally cleanse and soften baby's skin.
Research shows that because an infant's skin in thinner than and adult, it will absorb products more easily. Make sure your baby is absorbing the right ingredients. For babies with extra sensitive skin or even skin problems (like eczema) using a natural baby soap is that much more important.
A Special Soap for a Special Baby
Some babies suffer from skin problems such as dry skin or even eczema. Eczema is an inflammation of the skin resulting in cracking, drying or even blisters. Many adults suffer from Eczema as do children and now a large number of babies are
experiencing these skin issues too.
It is all the more important to use a limited amount chemicals on their skin to decrease the chances of inflammation. As a benefit, products like natural baby soap contain extracts, oils and moisturizers that will help heal and protect their skin.
A major ingredient to avoid with those who suffer from eczema is products containing "fragrance" or "perfume". This term, as I've stated before, represents literally hundreds of chemicals that the industry adds in without disclosing it to the consumer. Going fragrance free in itself will eliminate many, many potentially harmful chemicals.
A great fragrance free natural baby soap to try is
