What Ingredients Are In Your Baby Care Products?

Baby Oil

If you’re like most parents of babies, you know the importance of good nutrition so you read baby food labels and carefully avoid dangerous preservatives and artificial colors.  But, how much time do you spend reading the labels of your favorite baby care products?  You may think that because a product is marketed for babies it must be safe but unfortunately, that is not always the case.  In fact, some popular brands of baby care products, including shampoos, washes, lotions, ointments, and wipes, contain potentially dangerous ingredients.

While it would be nice to think that the FDA, Food and Drug Administration, is protecting our children from potentially dangerous chemicals, that just isn’t so.  Baby care products are considered to be cosmetics by the FDA and with the exception of color additives, ingredients in cosmetics are not subject to FDA approval.  Individual cosmetic and personal care product companies are responsible for determining the safety of their products prior to placing them on the market.   Basically, the FDA is only involved in ensuring proper labeling of cosmetics.   It’s sad to say but companies can even include a dangerous ingredient in a product as long as the proper warning label is included.   So the bottom line is that as a parent you MUST read the labels!

Is Skin Care Important For Men?

YES!  RE9 Advanced for Men is an advanced line of grooming products that addresses the specific skin care needs of men.
