“Johnson & Johnson Gently Poisons Babies With Its Shampoo.” That’s the headline over at Jezebel, which reported this week on a campaign to get the company to change some of the ingredients in its baby shampoo.
According to a group called the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, the company is taking too long to remove chemicals that could potentially cause cancer from its shampoo. The coalition released a report Tuesday titled, “Baby’s Tub is Still Toxic.”
In response, the company issued a statement that said, “The first and most important thing to know is that the products they mention are safe—up to our own high standards and approved by regulators in the U.S., EU, and China. Still, because we know that some consumers are concerned, we have made a number of changes to our product line over the past two years.
