For most parents it is impossible to understand or decipher what the ingredients in some of chil-dren‘s products actually are:

Have you ever looked at the ingredients list on your baby care and children‘s products and wondered what they are?

Have you ever researched what the ingredients are and what their purpose is?

Do you believe the ingredients are safe for your kids?

Are you aware of the effects the combination of some these ingredients may have on your baby and children‘s health and wellbeing?

Do you believe that products advertised or labelled ‗natural‘ or ‗organic‘ are safe to use?
Raise Questions, Seek Answers
When you know the truth about the chemicals in your baby and children‟s products you may be shocked at what you find!

Because you make ALL the choices and decisions for your children from birth to their formative years, it is vitally important that you make wise and informed choices for them.
You will decide: What products they are exposed to What medications they will take What food they eat Where and how they will live
Are you aware of the toxins they may be exposed to from their baby products and in their every-day environment?
What is that you require to help you understand the impact of toxins on your child‘s health and wellbeing now and for the future?
What do you think they would ask you in the future about the choices you are making for them today?
If your child had a choice, what would they choose?

Healthy Living
We have all lathered and pampered our kids with all sorts of potions, lotions and concoctions so they feel soft and smell good. Most people intrinsically believe that companies would not inten-tionally promote or sell products that would harm our babies or children.
Is this really true?

“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better”
Albert Einstein

Inner Alchemy
The alchemists of ancient times were aware that the human body works in harmony with mother nature. They used her secrets in a form of natural chemistry, free from synthetic chemicals using only ingredients derived from plants, minerals, flowers and nature.
This fact is what makes natural substances more powerful than any synthetic substance created by man. Most modern men and women have detached themselves from nature. We now live in a world where every aspect of our environment is saturated with synthetic chemicals. Sad but true…
We have been fooled for decades into thinking that ‗synthetics‘ are the way of the future and that they are safe and superior to nature. Given the massive increases in cancer and other im-mune related diseases since the beginning of the chemical revolution in the 1930‘s and the cur-rent global environmental issues of our planet, we can see that this may not be the truth.


It‘s important to understand that product sales In the ‗natural‘ and ‗organic‘ body care industry are driven by marketing and advertising gurus driven with the single intention of increasing profits for their clients. This is their role and they don‘t distinguish quality…. Many of the big cosmetics companies have jumped on the “organic” bandwagon regardless of their chemical preservative system, synthetic additives, fragrances and perfumes, plus a host of thousands of other chemical ingredients. Using catchy phrases like ―vitamin-e‖, “naturally-based ingredients”, “green tea”, “anti-oxidants” and many others, they hope to fool us into believing their products are natural, healthy and safe…and they’re not!! Just read the labels. It‘s time to realise that our bodies are meant to be at one with nature and that technology whilst part of our lives, has become detrimental to the long term health of humans and our planet? So what can we do to change this? As an informed consumer you have the power to make change simply by using your ‗buying‘ power. Be conscious of the products you choose. As you ‗detox‘ your home you will improve the health and wellbeing of yourself, your fam-ily, your pets and the planet.
Together we can make a difference. It‘s called PEOPLE POWER

Supermarket, drug store, pharmacy and health food store shelves are flooded with products that claim to be organic or natural and safe to use on your kids and you. However ‗eco-marketing‘ and ‗green‘ labelling‘ disguise the reality of the synthetic chemical ingredients in your baby products.
There is no enforcement or federal regulations in many countries that prevent companies from labelling these products natural or organic, even when they’re loaded with synthetic ingredients! For example, many baby lotions that claim to be ‗organic‘ many contain Propylparaben, a toxic chemical known to cause skin rashes and allergic reactions.
Research shows contact with this chemical on babies or children should be avoided! Another example is a baby shampoo that also calls itself organic, but includes the ingredient Cocamidopropyl Betain, a chemical that causes eye and skin irritation! These synthetics have definitely not been approved as ‗organic‘ ingredients, nor would they be. Yet they are found in most of our personal care products and we‘re led to believe they are safe to use on us and our kids.

They accumulate in the food chain and end up in our bones, organs, blood, fat, urine, ovaries and sperm. If you are pregnant they are passed onto your baby child via the placenta or later through your breast milk. (Article #1 – outlines the results of a study of the umbilical cords undertaken by the Red Cross. You may be shocked by what you read.) What‘s scary is that over half these chemicals have never been tested for their toxicity on humans, especially babies? So what happens when they‘re all mixed together to become a shampoo, bubble bath or baby lotion? Yes, you’re right! They become a toxic concoction!
About now you’re probably thinking how heavy this all feels. I’m hearing you!
How good do you feel knowing you are becoming wiser, more informed and
conscious about what‘s happening in your environment?
How does it get any better than that?

Is it Time to check ourselves- b 4 we wreck ourselves

Did you know?
In 1901 Cancer rates were 1 in 8000 – they are now 1 in 3 and rising
Between 1965 & 1982 over 4M distinct chemical compounds were made
At least 250,000 new chemicals have been made each year since 1982. They are found in our water, the air we breathe, the food we eat, what we put into and on our bodies and under the sink.

Most of these chemicals have never been tested for their effects on humans, animals or the environment
A study of umbilical cord samples from the American Red Cross found that babies in-utero have an average of 200 known toxic chemicals in their blood, including mercury, fire retardants, pesticides and a chemical used in the production of Teflon. All this even be-fore being born! (See ARTICLE #1)
Girls are reaching puberty at a younger age, sometimes as young as seven
More boys are being born with genital deformities than ever before
PMS, fibrocystic breast disease, endometriosis and other hormonal problems are rife
Diseases such as Alzheimer‘s, Parkinson‘s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and other immune related diseases are far more prevalent than they once were
Since 1980, asthma has increased by 600%. The Canadian Lung Association and the Asthma Society of Canada identify common household cleaners and cosmetics as triggers
There has been a 28% increase in childhood cancer, such as leukemia, since the addition of pesticides into household products.(Source: National Cancer Institute)

Allergies and skin conditions have increased 10-fold
1 in 3 children and adults now suffer from Asthma or respiratory illness
ADHD etc are now commonplace – 7.7 – 12.8m children in the US alone have mental health problems such as ADD, ADHD, DEPRESSION
People suffering from depression has risen from one in twenty people to one in five
There are up to 110 chemicals used on apples alone – so much for an apple a day… They can be kept in cold storage for up to two years before you buy them so they gotta keep them looking fresh and stop them rotting somehow!!
Approximately 710 chemicals in our water supply & Over 10,000 chemicals used in food processing and preservation which increases every year.

These are just a few of the published statistics. There is now scientific and medical evidence which supports the correlation between the increase in cancers, immune related diseases, asthma, skin disorders and more and the introduction of synthetic man-made chemicals into our environment since the 1930‘s. It‘s something we can no longer pretend isn’t happening…
I know this is scary stuff but congratulate yourself because you now have the information to question what‘s in the products you‘re using on Yourself, your Children and in your Home?  Stay tuned now to find out more and more and more.
