Baby Magic Original or Johnson's Heaed to toe fragrance free?

Okay...I am slightly confised. I like the smell of both products (including but not limited to body wash, lotion. etc.) Johnson's states that it is "fragrance free" on the bottle, however, it does have a scent.

Baby Magic Original  does not say it has added fragrance or that it is scented; it still has the new baby smell.

How can something be scented with no fragrance? I have read that the fragrance free varieties are genteler on skin....What is your preference/experience? Does one dry out skin more than the other?

 

Thanks!

Either way they both aren't good for babies. Even an unscented or "natural" johnsons or baby magic still contain tons of chemicals. You want to look into organic baby wash, more expensive but well worth not knowingly exposing baby to chemicals found to cause cancer.

Thank you for saying that. I could not figure out a way to say that without sounding like an ass.

Babies don't need soap or lotions at all. They are prefect, and just need water. Which is free.
If you feel you need to mosturize baby for some reason, your best bet is gonna be jojoba oil, or a seed oil (stay clear of nut oils if there are allergies in the fam).
I run far, far away from anything with parabens or sls or fragrance or colors or... anything you can't eat, really. Unfortunately, this includes a lot of "natural" brands as well.

Check out the ewg.com list. Somewhere on there they have a list of cosmetic products and such.

here is a great site to check safety ratings of brands and brand recommends http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/

baby magic, Johnson & Johnson's both do not rank well on the safety ratings

If you want to use a baby wash that is safe and smells good... Whole Foods has a Peter Rabbit baby wash that smells yummy and is organic. It still smells like a baby.

Like everyone else said both of those brand of baby soaps have nasty chemicals that are absorbed into babys body. Yucky stuff!
