Harmful Baby Powders and Lotions

A new study published in the journal Pediatrics says baby products such as powders and lotions have harmful amounts of phthalates, chemicals suspected of impairing male reproductive function.

Phthalates, man-made chemicals used in lubricants and cosmetics, were found in all 163 infants whose urine was examined. Doctors say babies do not need powders and lotions on their skin because at this stage it is perfect. Avoiding these potentially harmful consumer products will lessen the likelihood that these chemicals will be found in youngsters’ bodies.
