I've never heard of that...i was told that most are chemical free?
I just found out that most "tear-free" shampoos use a chemical anesthetic that numbs your babies' eyes so that when the irritating shampoo gets in their eyes they won't feel it.
I can't believe they do this!!!
Please look for a shampoo that is natural; containing no chemical additives.
They are not to be honest,there are topped up with them even baby ones,I have started using a range called halo and horns a lady who has a child with severe excema started making as all baby products made her son/daughters skin worse,so she has tried to do away with as many as possible!!!
there must be someone who does something similar for you US ladies!?!?
Welcome to BTZ
It wouldn't surprise me if they were. Where did you hear about it?
I avoid shampoos etc with SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) coz I am retentive like that and tend to buy more natural products anyways.

Wouldn't surprise me!! I love the smell of Johnsons baby products but because of some of the things in there I won't use them on Dan. Although I have been known to use the baby shampoo on myself lol.

People will always talk about you. Might as well give them something to talk about.

I was just listening to a company's product development CD. It said their baby line was 100% natural, irritant free, vegan certified, etc... but that most companies that don't but out a natural product, add a chemical anesthetic. And even some "natural" products are not all natural, so you have to be careful.
Johnson's Baby Shampoo does not add this anesthetic, but they do put "detergent chemicals" in the shampoo. (This is straight from Johnson's). Who wants to put any chemicals on their babies?!
I have 2 autistic children. In fact, 1 in every 150 children born today will be diagnosed with autism. One child every 4 min. will be diagnosed with autism in the United States! I believe the environment has played a large part in this. Why do we need chemicals in our baby's shampoo, lotions, etc.?
I'm here to encourage people to spend a little extra money to get a really chemical free product. We have no idea the long-term effects (or short-term, for that matter) that all the chemicals added to all our products have.
I've been doing a great deal of research in this area, and you wouldn't believe what's in your family's bath, skin care and makeup products.
Please keep yourself and your families as chemical free as possible. My life's goal is to see that every baby born has an equal chance at a healthy life.
My kids seem to be doing fine with the shampoo we use. I think you can find a scare in anything if you look hard enough. We just roll with the flow
Second of all, there are many studies that point to a number of causes for autism, namely things like parents being older (much like the increased risk for downs syndrome), heredity and other factors. If your first child is autistic you have an increased risk of your second child being autistic. Using a shampoo on your child after he/she is born is unlikely to alter whether your child becomes autistic. I guess its like the vaccinations debate about whether it is a cause for autism, but it is not a reason NOT to vaccinate. Shampoo is not going to CAUSE autism.
We have used as natural as possible products on our little girl, but that is mainly due to her having excema. But i do not for one minute think that soaps or anythin glike that have CAUSED her excema, especially considering we have NEVER in her life used soap on her, and have used organic shampoos etc on her - and she still gets excema.
As LoneStarMomma said you can find a scare in anything and if you look hard enough on the internet you'll find something that will tell you that nuclear war would be good for the human race.
also - when i googled this topic - your posts are the ONLY thing that is published anywhere online:
Even snopes.com has nothing about it....
