Why Organic Is Best!

Guest Blog:

You wouldn't poison yourself so why poison your child?

Why organic is best.

Even though using organic baby products or even organic products for the whole family can be very expensive, your children and family are worth every penny.  It will protect the ones you love from unexpected illness or skin irritations.

As a busy military wife with two adorable children, who both have allergies, I came to the realization that I too wanted to use all organic and eco friendly products; I just didn't know how I could afford it.  Not only using foods from the local grocery store, but going as far as using organically produced cotton and dyes on my children's skins.  Both of them have eczema, and any parent who has children with eczema kows how difficult this is to control and how to keep your child comfortable.  My son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was six years old.  I have a strong passion about ADHD and decided that through this site I would like others to make an informed decision if the time ever arises.  This can be done by organic products and learning the truths about ADHD.  I will talk more about this in the future.

Having been in medical reaserch, I know firsthand the effects of chemicals, toxins and other products that we use on a daily basis, to our skin and bodies.  We don't realize that the skin is the largest organ of the body.  The skin abosrbs substances like a big sponge.  The adorabe clothing out there that we purchase for ourselves and our children have all these beautiful colors, however, we don't stop to think what these are made from.  Unfortunatley the scary thing is that all these dyes have very bad chemicals in them, dioxin, formaldehyde, azo dyes and heavy metals such as alum, chromium, copper, iron, and tin.

"Dioxins and furans are some of the most toxic chemicals known to science.  A draft report released for public comment in September 1994 by the US Environmental Protection Agency clearly describes dioxin as a serious public health threat."  (
"Formaldehyde can be used for many purposes and is a poplular chemical because of its low cost.  It also is found in items such as dyes, textiles, plastics, paper products, fertilizer, and cosmetics."
I have only addressed two of the many chemicals/toxins that are in dyes that we expose our skins to 24 hours a day.  They say that it all depends on exposure.  So if we expose our skin to clothing with all these dyes and chemicals that we wear 24 hours a day, I would surmise that we are at high risk to exposure, wouldn't you? not only endeavors to provide affordable organic and eco-friendly products for babies and the whole family, but to provide informative infomation, topics, and ideas on how to move forward and make a difference.  I am committed to saving the environment and providing the children today and the future, a healthier more sustainable, nontoxic life.  We wouldn't consciously poison ourselves, so why would we do it to our children and babies?

Think about it!

Our kids matter!

  1. Hi Sharron.

    Thanks for posting my article. I hope people find it to be an interesting read, and do more research about toxins that we pass to our children and ourselves on a daily basis. Just to be more aware of what we are doing!

    Thanks Again!
