Babies’ health is assaulted from all sides through exposure to toxins in their limited environment. Their first bowel movement has more plastic chemicals than adults1 and they continue to consume plastic particles from the public water system2 and baby bottles.3 Over-the-counter baby food is tainted with heavy metals4,5 and diapers are filled with toxic chemicals children absorb through their skin.6,7

In the fight to provide you and your family with safer personal care products, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) developed the Skin Deep database8 where they publish chemical reviews of personal care products. You can also search for EWG Verified9 personal care products that have been tested and are the safest to use in their category, including diapers.

These often-overlooked personal care products for babies can expose infants to a load of toxic chemicals, which are pressed against the baby’s skin nearly 24/7 until they are potty trained. This can be two or more years that babies are exposed to chemicals pressed against their genitals with known negative health effects.

Experts estimate that in the first year a baby will go through 2,500 disposable diapers.10 Parents often consider comfort, absorbency and fit but research indicates that the materials and ingredients are likely more important when you consider that a diaper may potentially harm a child’s health.
