Earth Mama Angel Baby – No Phthalates Ever!

2009 September 3

With the release of various scientific studies, concerns over toxic ingredients in baby care products are on everyone’s mind today. Ever since its launch six years ago organic brand Earth Mama Angel Baby has made the commitment to never use phthalates in any of their products. They only use the highest-quality, certified-organic or organically grown herbs and oils for their bath herbs, gentle handmade soaps, salves, lotions and massage oils. Earth Mama Angel Baby products are 100% toxin-free, cruelty-free, vegan, and free from all artificial preservatives, fragrances and dyes. All product ingredients are fully listed on the packaging and they regularly provide customers with useful information on cosmetic ingredients found in baby skin care.

Products like baby lotion, baby shampoo, baby oil, and soaps usually contain “fragrance” among the ingredients. But so do body care products for adults, and even lotions and creams for pregnant women carrying developing babies. Even though fragrance is listed, the potentially harmful cocktail of ingredients that make up fragrance does not have to be disclosed to consumers. These artificial fragrances most often include phthalates; chemicals that make fragrances stay on the skin longer. The problem is, phthalates have also been linked to a number of health issues in animal studies. There is no clear evidence that phthalates cause reproductive or developmental issues in humans, but as more studies are done, and more hidden ingredients are exposed, more concerns arise.

“Phthalates are often hidden on ingredient lists,” explains Earth Mama Angel Baby founder Melinda Olson. “Artificial fragrances, which often contain phthalates, are exactly the type of ingredient that we would never consider using. We publish on our web site and on every label a complete list of every ingredient. I believe that our mamas should be able to buy our products and feel safe using them on their biggest miracles – their angel babies.”

“Our first concern is, and always has been, that all of our products be pure and safe, with worry-free ingredients. That’s why you’ll never find any artificial ingredients in any Earth Mama Angel Baby products, ever. We’ve had concerns about phthalates for years – we also worry about sodium laurel sulphates and parabens, among other common personal care product ingredients, so we just don’t use them in our products. We seek out the best organic and natural ingredients, and find ways to keep everything simple, pure and effective. We don’t cut corners, so we don’t need to use cost-saving foaming agents, fillers, artificial preservatives, dyes or fragrances. We believe the mamas who trust Earth Mama Angel Baby want only the best for their families, and we are here to provide it.”
