Fox News just released a list of the five most toxic chemicals found in baby care products. SCARY! Of course, all five are on Beautycounter’s Never List (see image) and are not found in any of our products.

In related news, Johnson & Johnson was just court ordered to pay $72 million in damages for cancer death linked to talcum powder. They face additional claims that it, in an effort to boost sales, failed for decades to warn consumers that its talc-based products could cause cancer. About 1,000 cases have been filed in Missouri state court, and another 200 in New Jersey.

It is truly up to YOU, the consumer, to read ingredients and take your health and safety into your own hands. Unfortunately, we cannot blindly trust these corporations, or even our government, to protect us and the sooner we learn this the better. Babies and kids are especially at risk of having these toxic chemicals adversely affect their little, growing bodies.
I could not be more excited for the Beautycounter baby line launch next week 🙂
