Seven Petroleum Free Baby Products

Made in USA Petroleum Free Baby Products We Love via

Oh, man! I’ve been doing a lot of research lately on safe, natural, American made non-toxic beauty products that don’t have harmful ingredients in them. I know that sounds weird. How could these safe, natural, and non-toxic products have harmful ingredients? Well, there is so much green washing, it’s difficult to know what is good and what isn’t.

I’ve done multiple online searches trying to find brands that offer the safest alternatives for babies. Even the brands you think are safe, because you know them, you use them, or they appear to be green-friendly, surprisingly, many of them are not. I started using an app called Think Dirty. You scan your bath and beauty products to see what ingredients are in them. If they are harmful, you can see what harm they cause. Many baby products contain synthetic ingredients that are known carcinogens, and linked to cancer. I think that’s pretty scary, so I wanted to provide brands and products that offer safe alternatives. Naturally, all of my picks are American Made too.

  1. Love finding out about new products. This is great cause I’m about to start shopping for baby 🙂 in the next couple of months and this information is great to know.

    • Jill Homiak says:

      I’m glad you enjoyed the post, Sean! I think small steps to eliminate petro-toxins from our everyday routine is easier when we know the alternatives out there!

  2. I can’t tell you how much I’ve waited for a post like this. I’m a GIANT fan of the Environmental Working Group that researches and exposes chemicals in everyday products, like make-up, baby care, skin care, etc.
    Yes, I love products made in the America but to hit my buying trifecta, it must also rate low on EWG’s toxicity scale and be from a company that is not affiliated with animal testing.
    I don’t buy any products anymore without seeing how they rank in the EWG skindeep database.
    Anything Dr. Bronner’s … love it all the way! Gosh this reads like a commercial but I can’t help it. I love when people get the word out about toxins in everyday products.
    Thanks for this post!

  3. Think Dirty sounds like an amazing app — definitely going to download that one!

  6. I use unscented Dr. Bronner’s soap daily for myself and for multiple uses.

  7. Tamra Phelps says:

    The waxelene is interesting to me, not because I have a baby but because I have a mother, lol. She actually has to use oxygen now & you cannot use petroleum based products on the face or anywhere near it because the oxygen might cause it to leave burns! I had no idea Waxelene existed!

  8. Lots of good ones on here. I love the castile soaps. This soap works for young and for old. I think going back to basics isrally the best idea.
