I read it has chemicals that caise camcer and I used it on my daughtermfor four years. We had to switch because of a rash. But if she ever gets cancer it could be the reason. Now we use aveeno and all natural stuff. Trying to rid the house of cleaning chemicals ect.

 All natural is best.. BUT..

SO many things are linked to cancer now..  And it's true, we are creating it.. But if you avoided EVERYTHING linked to cancer, imagine how little you'd be able to use?

You can't feel guilty for what you didn't know

Look up the ingredients in Aveeno too. Research ingredients in everything you use. You'll be surprised

This was on the news a while ago. I stopped using their products since. I always check the labels for that ingredient now.. Horrible huh?

You should tray an all natural oil, like argan. Besides, babies don't need lotion.

Trying to avoid contact is best and there is a HUGE variety of natural alternatives that lazy people just don't feel like looking into.

 No you're right, there are tons of alternatives and natural products, a lot of which I use.

I just thought the "if she gets cancer it could be my fault" was slightly melodramatic.

Well the doctor recommended aveeno. What is wrong with it? Yeah i am not a big lotion fan but it was good after bath time. Well, that is opinion. Lotion is good for dry skin and now she came down with really itchy dry skin. Have to keep her skin moisturized some how. Where do I get argan oil?

The air you breathe in your own home can cause cancer.

Seriously, I wouldn't worry about it.  The levels they test that stuff are entirely unrealistic.  Just about anything can cause cancer when to pump it in by the gallon.
