J&J Starts Removing Toxins From Baby Products

Flickr user aldinegirl87

Johnson & Johnson has begun removing two harmful chemicals from its iconic baby shampoo and other baby products in the U.S.
  

An international coalition of consumer and environmental groups had pressed the company since May 2009 to remove the toxins from all personal care products, including Johnson’s Baby Shampoo.
  

 Two weeks ago, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics was emboldened after finding the health care giant had removed the two chemicals from products in several other countries. But in the U.S., the products contain trace amounts of potentially cancer-causing chemicals.
  

Johnson & Johnson now says it expects to remove formaldehyde-releasing preservatives from baby products within about two years and is reducing traces of the other chemical.
