7 Ingredients to Avoid in Baby Diaper Creams
While there are many diaper creams in the market, you want a diaper cream that is gentle on the skin and keeps baby’s skin moisture. Here are the top seven “sinful” additives to avoid in baby diaper creams.
- Fragrance – Many diaper rash creams, like the majority of other skincare products, contain synthetic fragrances. These are problematic because they may include a laundry list of unknown chemicals that the manufacturer is not required to disclose. This means harsh chemicals can lurk within the generic fragrance category with a high potential to harm your baby’s soft skin.
- Parabens – Commonly used as a preservative for skincare products, parabens have been linked to a host of health problems. Parabens can disrupt hormones in the body, causing damage to reproduction and reproductive organs, affecting birth outcomes, and increasing cancer risk.
- Petrolatum – Also known as petroleum jelly, petrolatum is a petroleum-derived product that clogs skin pores. Worse, due to improper refining, it is occasionally contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which have been linked to cancer.
- Talc – This is a nasty ingredient that has close ties to—and sometimes contaminated with—asbestos, an extremely carcinogenic compound linked to both lung and ovarian cancer. Needless to say, this should never come into contact with a baby’s delicate parts.
- Lanolin – You may be surprised to learn that lanolin should be avoided. Lanolin is essentially a sheep’s skin excretion. The issue is that sheep are frequently sprayed directly with pesticides to combat mites and other pests. To be FDA-compliant, lanolin can legally contain up to 40 parts per million (PPM) of pesticides. In addition, sheep are almost always fed a diet of genetically modified and chemically sprayed grain and alfalfa.
- Benzyl benzoate – This chemical is an endocrine disruptor and an environmental toxin. Avoid it at all costs.
- Hydrogenated oils – Hydrogenated oils are oils that have been chemically processed. It is preferable to use the natural, unprocessed version.
