Certain Babyganics products advertised as “tear free” may in fact contain harmful eye irritants, putting young children at risk.
What is Babyganics?
Babyganics is a line of products designed to be safe for infants and young children. These products include shampoos, bubble bath, body wash, and more.
The company claims to “thoroughly test every product […] to make sure that the product is safe to use on and around babies.” This includes its line of “tear free” products.
What Are the Reported Problems with Babyganics?
The company claims its body washes, shampoos, and bubble bath products are “tear free,” gentle, non-allergenic, and safe for infants and young children. However, after independent testing and expert analysis, it has been found that these products may actually contain chemicals that are known eye irritants.
In reviews on sites like Amazon, numerous consumers have also claimed that the products have hurt their children’s eyes, making statements such as “My daughter cries ‘hurts eyes!’ every time we used it,” and “This definitely stings my little one’s eyes like crazy, making it unusable.”
By claiming these products are “tear free,” Babyganics is deceptively advertising its potentially dangerous product as safe for infants and young children.
Infants bathed with these supposed “tear free” Babyganics products are at risk of getting soap in their eyes, as young children do not always keep their eyes tightly closed during bathing. As a result, any bath products for infants and children with eye irritants could pose a danger to a child’s eyes.
