The Bad and the Ugly About Kids Shampoos
For years, we’ve all been reaching for the same kids shampoos, without giving any thought to it what-so-ever. Did you know that in Europe, they have banned 1400 ingredients from going into personal care products…including kids hair care products? How many would you guess the US has banned? The same as Europe? More? Less? In the US, we are only banned from putting 11 ingredients into our personal care products. 11 people!! That means 1389 other gross dangerous things are able to make it into them!
4 of the top kids hair care products on the market today, have cancer causing ingredients in them. The very ones we are all reaching for when we shop! In fact, many companies are putting (are you ready for this?) formaldehyde in them. Did you catch that? FORMALDEHYDE!!
If someone walked up to you, and said “I have this new children’s shampoo that not only contains toxic cancer causing ingredients, but we also added a little formaldehyde to it….would you please use this on your child’s scalp for a few years?” What would you say? Well by grabbing those shampoos at the store, and putting them in our basket, paying for them, and going home and putting them on our kids heads..we are saying YES!! So what’s the solution?
