I recently read a report written by Amy Westervelt highlighting toxic ingredients in Johnson & Johnsons's baby shampoo and other beauty products (Click the link for more information).
This reminded me of an incident when the wall in my hallway was attacked with a well known brand of washable felt tip pens. In a bid to remove the offending marks I reached for a packet of nearby baby wipes (I would like to point out that the baby wipes were not Johnson's but a well known supermarket's own brand). Yes, the baby wipes did a fantastic job of removing the pen marks. They also stripped the paint from the walls. Can wipes really be good for a baby's bottom?
With this memory and reading the above mentioned article I was prompted to dig out an AMAZING book sent to me from New Zealand by my mother in law. It contains recipes for all kinds of cleaning and beauty products using mostly simple and natural ingredients.
Being new to blogging I am unsure of the rules surrounding sharing with you the recipe for some of her baby products BUT I have found them all freely available on the WWW.
Click Here for a link to Wendyl Nissen's website and all her baby product recipes.
I am now armed with a shopping list of ingredients and I will let you know how we get on!
