This study shows that certain chemicals from toiletry products are being absorbed by infants and being detected in the urine with levels high enough to be a concern These same chemicals are used in fragrances and such in the beauty industry. " All urine samples had detectable levels of at least one phthalate, and most had levels of several more. The highest levels were linked with shampoos, lotions and powders, and were most prevalent in babies younger than 8 months" http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080204/ap_on_he_me/baby_products_chemicals;_ylt=AsgSwQQd9K7oEy4C._oUWmKs0NUE
