Toxic Ickies-Skin Deep

I think most people probably know about the Skin Deep website, but just in case you don't, it's worth posting here. Skin Deep is a cosmetic safety database and it rates everything from foundation to sunscreen on it's safety for use in humans. They check ingredients for tendency toward organ toxicity, reproductive & developmental toxicity, allergens/immunotoxicity. It is truly mind-boggling. One thing that really baffles me is the baby sunscreen. These companies like Coppertone, Banana Boat, & Baby Magic are fantastic at marketing baby products. Unfortunately they put a LOT less effort in actually producing products that are safe for the little consumer.

Check it out for yourself. Here's the Baby Sunscreen Listing.

WOW. Thanks for sharing. Question..stupid it may be, is there any that are completely safe? I was using the California Baby Lotion. I see it is considered "low".
