Natracare award-winning Nursing pads, Maternity pads and baby wipes are specially designed for new mothers and their babies using only totally chlorine-free, plastic free and organic and natural ingredients.
Many products available to nursing mothers contain synthetics and super absorbents derived from the petroleum industry, which can have a negative impact, both on women’s health and our environment.
During pregnancy, women are naturally more aware of and concerned about the health and care of their bodies. The pureness of Natracare products can provide women with the necessary reassurance that is so important at this time of their lives
Many of the baby wipes widely available contain harsh foaming agents like sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), as well as preservatives such as phenoxyethanol, which is linked to dermatitis, and the Parabens, recently flagged up as a concern for health. Parabens, including methyl, propyl, butyl and ethyl paraben, are just one of a large group of toxic chemicals that no-one has any idea about what the long term effects are likely to be if they are used every day on the skin.
There are a whole range of chemicals widely used in baby wipe formulations about which we need to ask the question; shouldn’t we be more cautious about using products that contain such chemicals? Products to be used on baby skin, which easily allows the transfer of chemicals into the body, should not only exclude the chemicals listed above, but also actively avoid propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol (PEG), Isopropyl myristate, and formaldehyde releasing preservatives such as imidazolidinyl urea.
