The Best Baby Soap & Baby Wash: Researched and Reviewed
Every day, our children are exposed to at least 27 different chemicals through personal care products. And most of these chemicals have not been tested for safety on children.
Think about when you wash your baby.
You put him in the tub and add some baby wash. For a start, baby skin is up to 30% thinner than adults’ skin. The water is warm, which opens up the pores of his already very thin skin. The heat also vaporises some of the chemicals, and your baby breathes them in. Your baby accidentally swallows some of the water, and you splash some in his eyes.
Baby wash might be a ‘rinse off’ product, but there are lots of opportunities for those chemicals to get into your baby’s delicate and developing body.
So what exactly are the ingredients in your baby’s bath products? Are they safe? How can you tell?
Ingredients in baby soap have been linked to endocrine disruption; skin allergies; and even heightened risks of cancer. And although some of the big guys have cleaned up their acts over the last few years, there are still plenty of irritating and even toxic ingredients in some brands of baby wash.
Many of these big companies still don’t list the ingredients on their websites. If you shop online, you can’t tell what’s in the packs. You physically have to go to supermarket, and stand there in the aisle searching up ingredients on your phone. Take your baby shopping with you while checking on ingredients? Good luck with that!
It’s easy to understand why so many of us just grab a pretty looking pack, only to get it home and find that not all the ingredients are great.
So that’s where Hello Charlie comes in. I’ve been to the supermarket, taken photos of all the products, then brought them home and looked up all the ingredients for you. Read on and find out which baby soaps and washes get the Hello Charlie recommendation, and which ones you (and your baby!) should avoid.
I’ve researched 59 different baby soaps and baby washes ! I didn’t do all of the mainstream ones, because I know that they’re going to be mostly the same. But I did try to do as many ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ ones as possible. The list of baby soaps that I’ve reviewed are all in alphabetical order, below.
