Johnson & Johnson in Deep Water

Back in 2009 bloggers and environmentalist were talking about Johnson & Johnson products containing ingredients that are known to cause cancer but it wasn't until the Campaign for Safer Cosmetics released the latest study showing the ingredients are still there but only in some countries, that the media has taken notice.

Now the story is viral and parents are pissed. This news has parents wondering what they can use on their babies instead. Here are just a few options that will be safe and gentle for your baby.

Earth Mama Angel Baby is a trusted brand that carries many different baby products as well as products for mom.

Soap for Goodness Sake has a very gentle lavender soap that is great for babies and mom.

Nurture My Body not only carries safe baby products but you can also choose to have them put in glass containers making them even more environmentally friendly.

You can find even more safe baby products on Skin Deep. All of the products listed here rank 0 on the site meaning they are the safest products. If you have favorite safe baby care products be sure to list them in the comments below.

Mostly, I find that I need to use very few products on my kids at all. We like Burt's Bees shampoo/body wash. It's probably not the very greenest, but it's widely available -- we buy it at Target. I also like their diaper cream. That's about all we use on our kiddos.

I remember when I was registering for Liam's baby showers 3 years ago and people insisting that I put J&J products on my list because they were "proven" to help with bedtime. I worked in pharmaceutical research... nothing is proven. People hate me. :)

We use Earth Mama Angel Baby, Badger Balm, Avalon Organics, and Dr. Bronners. We love them all, and we don't have to worry about harsh chemicals.

Betsy: Yeah you really shouldn't need dozens of products for children!

Laura: I hear ya on that one! haha

Becki: Isn't it great when these studies come out and we don't have to freak because we already knew that they were harmful?
