Following a post about how to keep babies away from chemicals contained in baby products, Argington comments on the occasionally misleading terms used to label baby products and the possible chemical exposure that babies may be unwittingly subjected to.

On August 7th, 2012, kids bedding manufacturer Argington commented on a post made by Fox News that discusses misleading products labels on items that are theoretically safe for babies but are actually full of potentially hazardous chemical additives.

The Fox News post mentioned specific chemicals like 1,4-dioxane and quaternium 15, and a class of chemicals known as phthalates, which have side effects that range from reproductive disorders, autism, cancers, and learning disabilities. According to the article, even the term “fragrance” is misleading, since “what you think might be the product’s natural scent, is actually a blanket term manufacturers use to hide allergens, synthetic musks and hundreds of chemicals including phthalates.”

Argington spokesman Clay Darrohn finds studies like these disturbing. He says, “At Argington, one of the most important aspects of our products is that they are organic or natural. When you are talking about chemicals that can cause a learning disability or even cancer, there shouldn’t be a question about using them in baby products. We understand that as a parent you feel a great responsibility to your child. You want to protect them. As an industry which directly affects babies at their most vulnerable point of development, it’s our collective responsibility to watch out for all children.”

As information revealing the potential dangerous of traditionally manufactured products, the organic movement is certain to grow. As more products become readily available for parents to choose from, the transition away from using products containing potentially hazardous chemicals with potentially lethal side effects and over to natural and organic products will increase. The Fox News story illustrates how prevalent these chemicals are in baby and children’s products and how uninformed parents can be.

Argington is a New York based manufacturer of fine baby furniture and nursery bedding. Proudly offering sustainable products that are organic or eco-friendly, Argington’s products are also created with mobility and various uses in mind to make parents’ lives a whole lot simpler.
