Having a child is an incredible milestone in every woman's life. We are never so aware of our bodies and lifestyle habits as we are now.

Now is the perfect time to start taking particular care of using safe body products - a habit you'll want to carry on when caring for the delicate skin of a newborn.

Shampoos, lotions, oils and other toiletries are not heavily regulated. You may be surprised at the number of chemicals, synthetic compounds and even known carcinogenic substances found in many of these items.

Fortunately, better alternatives exist. Read the labels, and gravitate towards products with ingredient lists you can pronounce and that are familiar to you.
