Everything changes when you become a parent. And I mean, EVERYTHING! All of us find that we become obsessive, compulsive label readers and information gatherers, as we research and double research just about everything that is fed to, applied on or is simply around our child.
When it comes to the products we apply on our chidlren, we are right to be this concerned and obsessive. A study by the campaign for Safe Cosmetics examined baby and children’s products for the presence of 2 probable human carcinogens – 1,4 dioxane and formaldehyde. Both of these are not put in intentionally by manufacturers, but are toxic by products that are formed because of the presence of other chemicals in these products. The research study showed that over 61% of the baby products surveyed (across leading brands), contained these 2 chemicals in more than trace quantities.
Most synthetic skin and hair products designed for toddlers and children are just as full of harmful, suspect, possibly carcinogenic chemicals. Routine checks of synthetic consumer products designed for children reveal the same SLS and SLeS which are harsh surfactants, the same paraben based preservatives and ALL the synthetic chemicals that are put on every toxic watchlist. The synthetic products we buy for our children simply look and smell mild, but are just as harmful.
Try Krya and our authentic ayurveda inspired products:
If you are concerned about the toxic load on your child, you could do no better than Krya's range of carefully formulated, purely natural, and synthetics free range of hair and skin products. We strictly follow the principles of herb selection, safety, natural goodness and processing standards laid down by Ayurveda and Siddha to formulate, test and safely manufacture our toddler and kids products (and all of our other products).
The lineage of Ayurveda is extremely deep and well thought out. Our traditional sciences clearly understand the needs of the body as the child grows, and suggests the right herbs that support the body in its growth. For example, the Krya Kids hair oil follows Ayurevdic principles in its formulation. Ayurveda teaches us that a young child's brain experiences extremely high growth in the first 10 years as the child sees, absorbs and responds to the stimuli around her / him. To support the brain during this high growth stage, and ensure there is no strain on the nerves, Ayurveda recommends use of Brahmi in all scalp and haircare products, especially oils. BRahmi is a powerful ayurvedic herb that supports the brain and nerves during this critical stage of development. so our Krya Kids hair oil, does not just nourish the scalp and hair, it also soothes the nerves, and helps the brain rest properly during this high growth stage.
