Our company's #1 priority has always been the safety of your little one. We have made it our mission to avoid a large and growing list of toxicants and chemicals. We pass The Tot test, and have had various testing conducted by 3rd party professionals to back our claims.
Check out the full list of ingredients/toxicants we avoid, and the "why" below.
Many phthalates are known endocrine disruptors associated with asthma, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, breast cancer, obesity, type II diabetes, neurodevelopmental issues, behavioral issues, autism spectrum disorders, altered reproductive development and male fertility issues.
Volatile Organic Compounds are suspected human carcinogens that can “off gas” into your environment, essentially polluting the air in your home. Exposure can cause eye, nose and throat irritation, shortness of breath, headaches, fatigue, nausea, dizziness and skin problems. Higher concentrations may cause damage to the liver, kidney, or central nervous system.
Pesticides and herbicides can prevent individual nerve cells from communicating with one another. They have also been linked to endocrine disruption, neurodevelopmental disorders, including ADD, autism spectrum disorder and lower IQ, impaired memory, severe depression, disruption of the immune system, paralysis and death.
PFAS (poly-fluoroalkyl substances) are a large family of different chemicals that have been shown to cause developmental and other adverse effects in laboratory animals.
Flame retardant chemicals have been linked to endocrine and thyroid disruption, impacts to the immune system, reproductive toxicity, cancer and adverse effects on fetal and child development.
Used for preservation, parabens have been the focus of many studies and are suspected to be a contributing cause of cancer and hormone disruption.
Also referred to as borax, direct exposure to boric acid can be corrosive to the eye, irritate skin or cause nausea, vomiting, stomach aches and diarrhea if ingested.
While the consumption of GMOs has been linked to allergies, asthma, intestinal damage, and inflammation, the use of them topically is also of concern. Chemicals that are absorbed through the skin make their way into the bloodstream, which means you potentially share the same risks.
