Problem: What are the safest body washes for babies’ and kids’ tender skin?
Solution: Opt for a “Healthy Choice” body wash because the skin absorbs 60% of what is applied on it.
As parents we want the safest and the healthiest for our little ones.
It is hard to determine why there is such an increase in childhood neurological disorders such as Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Attention Deficit, Dyslexia and many others. There is no clear answer. There is no one single cause. Yet we can’t overlook the stress that unsafe ingredients in food and toxic chemicals in personal care products can have on a young child’s developing body, whether ingested or absorbed through the skin.
Our product manager and chemist developed Belcam Bath Therapy “Healthy Choice “ for Baby and Belcam Bath Therapy “Healthy Choice” for Kids out of personal concern for the unknown damage chemicals absorbed through the skin can have on a child’s development. Their commitment was to develop a “Healthy Choice” formulation that eliminated questionable chemical ingredients yet remained affordable to parents.

Test results from an independent laboratory indicate that there is no occurrence of the 2 known carcinogen 1,4-Dioxane and Formaldehyde in Belcam Bath Therapy for Baby and Belcam Bath Therapy for Kids. These ingredients never appear on a label, as they are by-products of chemical reactions amongst the ingredients in the formula.
1,4-Dioxane is a by-product of a petrochemical process called ethyoxylation, which involves using ethylene oxide (a known breast carcinogen) to process other chemicals in order to make them less harsh. For example, sodium lauryl sulfate – notoriously harsh on the skin – is often converted to the gentler chemical sodium laureth sulfate by processing it with ethylene oxide (the "eth" denotes ethoxylation), which can result in 1,4-dioxane contamination. Sodium laureth sulfate is just one common example. More than 56 cosmetic ingredients are associated with the contaminant 1,4-dioxane.
Formaldehyde contaminates personal care products when common preservatives release formaldehyde over time in the container. Common ingredients likely to contaminate products with formaldehyde include quaternium-15, DMDM hydantoin (in many kids’ bath formulations), imidazolidinyl urea and diazolidinyl urea.
Belcam Bath Therapy for Baby and Belcam Bath Therapy for Kids are also tear-free. Laboratory test results indicate that there is practically no ocular irritation with our formula. We scored better than a leading brand.
