    Thank You, Johnson and Johnson!
    I just found out from MomsRising that a new report by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics shows that formaldehyde-releasing chemicals are in Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo in the United States. Meanwhile, Johnson and Johnson is now selling versions of the shampoo in Denmark, Finland, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, South Africa, Sweden and the U.K. that DON'T contain formaldehyde-releasing chemicals. You can read the report here: http://safecosmetics.org/downloads/Babys-Tub-Is-Still-Toxic_Nov2011.pdf

    But there's good news! MomsRising, along with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and other groups representing 4 million people, sent a letter to Johnson and Johnson on October 31st asking, “Why the double standard?  Why sell safer products in other countries but not here?" And guess what? The voices of moms were heard! 

    On November 1st, the company released a statement saying it is no longer introducing new products with formaldehyde-releasing preservatives and it is phasing out these types of preservatives in baby products worldwide.

    Now it's up to us to thank Johnson and Johnson and to let Johnson and Johnson know that consumers are watching so the company actually takes the steps it promised to protect the health of kids in the United States! Tell Johnson and Johnson "Thank you!" -- and share that you're excited that they'll be taking toxic chemicals out of our children's tubs:

    Johnson and Johnson: We Think You Can for Kids!

    MomsRising, along with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and other groups representing 4 million people, sent a letter to Johnson and Johnson on October 31st asking why they sell safer products in other countries, while formaldehyde-releasing preservaties are still in the baby shampoo they sell in the US. And guess what? Moms voices were heard!

    On November 1st, the company released a statement saying it is no longer introducing new products with formaldehyde-releasing preservatives and it is phasing out these types of preservatives in baby products worldwide. Now it's up to us to thank Johnson and Johnson and to let them know that consumers are watching so the company actually takes the steps it promised to protect the health of kids in the United States!
