Avon Naturals Kids Revealed (Shampoo & Body Wash)

Standard

Crazy Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner:

I am amazed that Avon has decided to call this line of products “natural”, since it is anything but that! Let’s take a look at the ingredients list for the shampoo/conditioner first.

Water, cocamidopropyl betaine  (this scores a 4 out of 10 on the database and is linked to allergies & immunotoxicity), sodium trideceth sulfate, peg-80 sorbitan laurate (this scores a 5 out of 10 on the database and is linked to allergies & immunotoxicity), sodium lauroamphoacetate, peg-150 distearate, phenoxyethanol (this scores a 4 out of 10 on the database and is linked to eye, skin, lung irritation, and organ system toxicity), parfum/fragrance, disodium edta, citric acid, polyquaternium-10, tocopheryl acetate (this scores a 3 out of 10 on the database, but has been linked to cancer, allergies, and immunotoxicity), methylchloroisothiazolinone (this scores a 5 out of 10 on the database and has been linked to cancer, allergies, immunotoxicity, skin, eyes, and lung irritations, and ecotoxicology), methylisothiazolinone (this scores a 5 out of 10 on the database and has been linked to allergies & immunotoxicity, skin, eyes, and lung irritation, ecotoxicology & neurotoxicity), caramel, and red 4/CI 14700.

So as you can see, this list is anything but natural! It’s literally a toxic soup for our human bodies.

Next we’ll take a look at the Bursting Berry Body Wash:

Water, cocamidopropyl betaine  (this scores a 4 out of 10 on the database and is linked to allergies & immunotoxicity), sodium trideceth sulfate, peg-80 sorbitan laurate (this scores a 5 out of 10 on the database and is linked to allergies & immunotoxicity), sodium lauroamphoacetate, peg-150 distearate, phenoxyethanol (this scores a 4 out of 10 on the database and is linked to eye, skin, lung irritation, and organ system toxicity), parfum/fragrance, disodium edta, citric acid, polyquaternium-10, tocopheryl acetate (this scores a 3 out of 10 on the database, but has been linked to cancer, allergies, and immunotoxicity), methylchloroisothiazolinone (this scores a 5 out of 10 on the database and has been linked to cancer, allergies, immunotoxicity, skin, eyes, and lung irritations, and ecotoxicology), methylisothiazolinone (this scores a 5 out of 10 on the database and has been linked to allergies & immunotoxicity, skin, eyes, and lung irritation, ecotoxicology & neurotoxicity), blue 1/CI 42090, and red 33/CI 17200.

So again, we see a lot of unhealthy ingredients in these products.

Some great alternatives to these products would be Earth Mama Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash (this scores a 0 out of 10 on the database), Lafe’s Organic Baby Foaming Shampoo & Gentle Wash (this scores a 0 out of 10 on the database), or Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Chamomile & Argan Oil Baby Head to Toe Wash & Shampoo (this scores a 1 out of 10 on the database).
