Thanks to The Motherhood and Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are all my own, and I hope you enjoy them.
Have you ever made a decision to do something as a parent for the sake of peace of mind? Of course you have; we all have! For me, examples that come to mind include taking my children to the doctor when I wasn’t 100% sure that they needed to be seen, but I wanted peace of mind just in case (in a few instances there was nothing to worry about, but in other instances we discovered Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease, strep throat ad even the need for stitches).
I’ve also made the call on MANY different occasions to not use certain products (especially household cleaning products) due to my concern about their safety. My research would often yield conflicting reports about whether or not there was anything to worry about, but for the sake of peace of mind, it just made more sense to keep them out of my home.
The Promise of Peace of Mind
JOHNSON’S® Baby products have been discussed quite a bit online over the last few years, as many parents had some concerns about the safety of some of the ingredients. And while the company asserts that their products have always been safe, they have also committed to listening to parents and caregivers, and seek a way to provide that peace of mind that is so important to us all. As a result, they have removed formaldehyde-releasing preservative and reduced traces of 1,4 dioxane from all of their baby products. Most of the new and improved baby products also have the parabens removed (scheduled to happen in 2015…great to see them ahead of schedule on this!). More information on their policies and timeline for product improvements and roll out can be seen at safetyandcarecommitment.com. I’m so impressed to see JOHNSON’S® Baby making and fulfilling these promises to provide peace of mind that every parent wants and needs. And I might have cried watching this video. Bet you can’t make it through without getting a little teary-eyed!
I love seeing a company who values cutting edge science AND the views and concerns of the people who use their products. Claiming the promises of their customers as their own is a true hallmark of being a family, and not just a business.
