Make sure you know what you're putting on your body.

A recent report by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found that Johnson’s Baby Shampoo and other top-selling children’s bath products contain some nasty ingredients, including: formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane.

Both chemicals are known to cause cancer in animals, and The International Agency for Cancer Research has classified formaldehyde as "carcinogenic to humans" and 1,4-dioxane as "possibly carcinogenic to humans". Formaldehyde has also been designated as "toxic" under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act because of its health effects.

Good enough for me both formaldehyd and 1,4-dioxane (not to mention parabens and phalates) stay out of my home.
