From Mother Magazine, who lists our Belly Butter as a product pick:
Cleaning Up Your Beauty Routine: We all use more personal care products in a day than we probably realize. Many contain chemicals that, even in small doses, may not be good for us. However, the cumulative effects of using these chemicals spread out across different products added together, day after day, have never been tested. We do know that what you put on your skin ends up in your bloodstream and passes through the placenta, as well. Avoid fake fragrances that often contain phthalates, known endocrine disruptors that have already been banned in plastic toys for kids under 3. Avoid parabens, endocrine-disrupting preservatives, some of which are banned in Europe. Avoid triclosan (often found in antibacterials), which can become dioxin, a known carcinogen.
