To Nurture // Baby Safety

September is National Baby Safety Month, and INA + ILIA is on a mission to raise awareness around the origin and type of materials used in household materials. Did you know that non-organic fibers can contain any number of toxic substances, like petrochemicals and PVC, that have been linked to a variety of developmental and behavioral issues? Babies have a higher ratio of skin surface area to body volume, which means they absorb chemicals easier. Their skin is actually 30 percent thinner than adults. This leaves babies especially open to absorbing harmful additives and synthetic chemicals that are often sprayed on large-scale commercially produced fabrics.
