Young Living Seedlings line

I really wish this was a thing when I had my kids! I totally used all kinds of Toxic stuff on my babies, but I had no idea what I was doing.  Thankfully times are changing.

Enter Young Living’s Seedlings line for our littlest littles.

Let’s chat. Mom-to-mom. And I want to do this with NO judgment, because I have used these things, too! I didn’t know better! But now I do, and I can’t unlearn the truth.

Here are some ingredients to avoid in baby products, and why they are NOT a part of Young Living’s Seedlings line:

  • Fragrance: the synthetic kind. Could be any combo of thousands of chemicals blended to cheaply mimic a naturally occurring aroma. Can cause skin irritation, allergies, and immunotoxicity
  • Parabens: I don’t care if they’re propylparaben, ethylparaben, methylparaben…PARABENS ARE BAD. They are hormone disruptors. You don’t want to mess with hormones.
  • Petroleum-based ingredients: Petrolatum is an example. Can cause organ system toxicity.
  • Formaldehyde: used as a preservative in cosmetics. A known carcinogen that is also linked to asthma, neurotoxicity, and developmental toxicity. Present where quaternium-15, DMDM Hydantoin, imidazolidinyl urea, Diazolidinyl urea, sodium hydroxymethyl glycinate, 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3 diol (Bronopol), and several other preservatives are listed. Found in: shampoo, body wash, bubble bath.Phthalates (DBP, DEHP, DEP, and others): a class of plasticizing chemicals used to make products more pliable or to make fragrances stick to skin. Phthalates disrupt the endocrine system and may cause birth defects. Found in: synthetic fragrance, nail polish, hairspray, and plastic materials.
  • Polyethylene glycol (PEG compounds): PEGs are widely used in cosmetics as thickeners, solvents, softeners, and moisture-carriers. Depending on manufacturing processes, PEGs may be contaminated with measurable amounts of ethylene oxide and 1,4-dioxane, which are both carcinogens. Found in: creams, sunscreen, shampoo.

…and more.

This is why I am big on DIY and no poo! If it is not good enough for my hair I would never want that in your baby’s life!
