Johnson & Johnson Will Soon Remove Toxic Chemicals from Their Baby Shampoo
When the news broke that Johnson’s baby shampoo and other baby products had chemicals in it, moms everywhere were concerned with the safety of their kids. Now, after pressure from activists since May 2009, the company has pledged to remove two chemicals that could potentially cause cancer, according to the Washington Post.
The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics put even more pressure on the company two weeks ago after they found out that two chemicals were removed from products in countries like the U.K., Scandinavia and South Africa. The Campaign urged people to boycott the products until chemicals were removed from products in the U.S. Johnson & Johnson pledges to remove the chemical quarternium-15 from its baby products within two years – and also speeding up the process for its baby shampoo.
We think it’s a step in the right direction. What do you think of the latest news? Do you still use Johnson’s baby products?
