As a mother, we always try to choose the right thing for our children and the right kind of products for our kids. In today’s times, it becomes very difficult to choose the best baby care product since the markets are full of innumerable brands. Apart from choosing the right brand, it is also difficult to choose the right products based on the ingredients.
There are two types of products based on the ingredients – 1) the natural products and 2) the chemical based ones. We all get scared when it comes to using a product which has “chemicals” in it. But don’t you think that almost every product has the presence of chemicals in it? Most importantly, have we ever wondered why are chemicals added into a product?
Look at, for instance, one of the most common things that we use daily – the pickles. Why are pickles really made and how are they made? Making pickles is basically a form of food preservation. Adding salt or sugar to food items protects it from getting spoiled due to the actions of bacteria or fungi. Even common salt is a chemical known as sodium chloride.We add it in almost every food item that we consume and it is a preservative!
Then, why do we get scared when we see sodium chloride written as an ingredient or a preservative in a market-based product?
When it comes to choosing baby care products we say that natural is better and chemicals are harmful. Every “natural” product needs chemicals to protect it from bacterial or fungal actions. The products are not safe to use if it does not have any kind of chemicals. If we ever look closely and try to understand the list of ingredients we will notice that it has a certain amount of chemical ingredients hidden under the use of another language. For instance, the natural products will have their ingredients listed in Sanskrit generating the impressions that the ingredients are only natural based and not chemicals.
Recently, I attended the launch event of the new range of Johnson’s Baby products. Johnson’s Baby Products have always been one of the safest products in terms of baby care. Their products are designed by highly qualified experts and go through the most stringent tests and safety levels. For the happiness of moms and to keep in sync with the changing times, they have updated and come up with the new range. The new range does not have any parabens, sulphates, dyes or phthalates. The ingredients are tested for 12 months. The new range is hypoallergenic and Ph Balanced. They are dermatologically tested for allergies.
The event was an eye-opening one. In the past, there have been several controversies about Johnson’s products as not being safe anymore. I really feel sad to know that a lack of awareness and media hype is tarnishing the image of a well-reputed brand that has been in the market for about 125 years.
The team of Johnson’s came upfront to answer all the queries of moms and told us how their products do not have asbestos or any carcinogens. Johnson’s Baby powder which has been under the greatest number of controversies has U.S. Pharmacopoeia grade talc to make sure that it meets the highest quality and purity.
Johnson’s have reduced the chemical ingredients in their products by 50% making them gentler and milder. The products are safer than before, upgraded to meet the evolving times and meet up the expectations of every mother who wants to choose gentle and milder products for her baby.
The launch event and the face to face interaction with the brand re-affirmed my faith and trust in Johnson’s. I can easily say that Johnson’s products were the best, are the best and will always be the best for every baby.
