Worst Baby Products: Cancer Causing Baby Wash

Well you may have seen my Best in baby products series. These items should probably have a place in the "worst of baby products". It may come as a shock to some of you but there is a carcinogen that can be found in many baby wash products. The chemical is known as 1,4-Dioxane.1,4-Dioxane is a petroleum derived contaminant that is considered a probable human carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and a clear cut animal carcinogen by the National Toxicology Program. Even more alarming is how many baby products it can be found in. For a complete list of products click here. If you would like to find products that don't have this cancer causing agent can go to this website. Spread the word and be careful with the products you buy.
