    Question johnson and johnson natural products...

    So today I seen in the RCSS flyer J&J came out wiht a new line of all natural baby shampoo, lotion and babywash...
    Introducing Natural Made Gentle, the New Line of Gentle, Natural Baby Care Products from the JOHNSON?S Brand | Johnsons Baby

    has anyone tried it? The price seems right, but I dunno... I have such a bad feeling about J&J in general...

    Yea, their sh*t is toxic I would enver in a million years use their regular line.

    But to give them the bennefit of the doubt, I took a peek a book at the CSDB. So looking at this line on EWG for the ingredients in the new line... The bracketed numbers are the score they got on EWG's Cosmetic Saftey Database.

    Johnsons Natural Body Lotion

    • Ingredient
    • Water
    • Glycerin (2)
    • Glyceryl Laurate (3)
    • Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil (1)

    • Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate (0-1)
    • Xanthan Gum (0)
    • Hydrogenated Cottonseed Oil (8..contamination concerns)
    • Fragrance (they say its plant derrived...)
    Johnsons Natural Head to Toe body wash and baby shampoo are the EXACT SAME!!!!

    I'm getting a bottle of the lotion to test out for Mom Central... It's supposed to be couriered anytime (I actually was expecting it today since they are usually pretty fast on this).

    We use Burt's Bees lotion on DD and Dove baby wash. I know the Dove probably isn't the best out there but she reacts to EVERYTHING and it seems to be the only one so far that she hasn't reacted to. She had HORRIBLE itchy rash from J&J original and lavender scented body washes. I'd like to use more Burt's Bees stuff but it's often quite out of our price range.

    I just avoid worrying about all this stuff by never bathing my children.
    Stop thinking youre not ready. Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises. Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we wont feel totally comfortable at first.
