My interest in nontoxic products started with my son. I have mentioned before how just fresh from the hospital, in the haze of no sleep an hour long nursing sessions something clicked in me, the products I used for personal care had toxins in them.

Almost immediately I threw everything out, and replaced them with more natural products but still store-bought. Don’t get me wrong, some of those are way better, but can be pricey. So it was only natural that I started to look into making most of my own products.

What’s wrong with conventional baby products?

Here are a couple of examples of the ingredients found in conventional products:

  • Quaternium 10 and 15:They are a group of chemicals used as preservatives, and are formaldehyde releasers. Although little evidence has been collected, they are suspected carcinogens.
  • Parabens:A family of preservatives. Endocrine Disruptors.
  • PEGs:a Family of emulsifiers and cleansing agents. They open up the pores allowing toxins to enter the skin easily.

Now, let’s talk cost

This recipe uses 6 oz of Dr Bronner’s Baby-Mild Castille soap. I buy this 32 oz bottle at $13.03, which means the cost of 6 oz is $2.44, the rest of the ingredients come to pennies for the amount used as well. I don’t know you but natural, safe, and cheap sounds really good to me!
