"With no required safety testing, cosmetics companies can use almost any chemical they want, regardless of risks.  Read labels before you buy."

Children's Products
1.  Avoid boric acid and sodium borate in diaper cream
2.  Avoid 2-bromo-2-nitropro-pane-1, 3-diol in baby wipes (I found that Pampers Sensitive is the only wipe without this ingredient.)
3.  Avoid toothpaste with fluoride for children under 2 (Whole Foods sells a Weleda brand that is very safe.)
4.  Avoid play makeup like lipstick, perfume and nail polish
