Thursday's Truths and Tidbits -- Johnson and Johnson caves into pressure!

The EWG is calling it a VICTORY! Back in November, corporate giant Johnson and Johnson succumbed to the pressure put on them by concerned people like you and me and agreed to take 1,4 dioxane and formaldehyde out of their baby products. This should have been a no-brainer from the start, but apparently the chemists at J&J didn't see a problem with poisoning our children.

The news just got better, however. J&J has agreed to phase out 1,4 dioxane, formaldehyde, and other carcinogens and toxins from their adult products as well. These are chemicals that have been linked to birth defects, diabetes, hormone disruption and breast cancer. And the toxins are found in the J&J company product lines by Aveeno, Neutrogena, ROC, Clean & Clear, Purpose and Johnson's Baby Shampoo.

It will be awhile before the products are safe, however, so don't rush out and buy them quite yet. Of course, you're always safe with Earth Mama Angel Baby's line, so at least you know of one alternative!

While the news is good, there is still more we can do. Such as start putting pressure on some of the other companies that continue to assault us with their toxins. So I encourage you to go to this link where you will be able to send a form email to the good folks at Proctor & Gamble, L'Oreal USA, Inc., The Estee Lauder Companies, Inc., Avon and Unilever. Let them know how you feel about their products being full of carcinogens and other junk, and remind that of how Johnson & Johnson is turning the tide and caring about the health and well-being of their customers.

Thanks for doing your part!

Sharing some truths and tidbits with you,



  1. That is good news, the sceptical side of me wonders what they will replace the chemicals with though.
