Target: Alan G. Lafley, CEO of Procter & Gamble

Goal: Remove dangerous chemicals from Pampers baby wipes.

Any parent will tell you that the biggest battle fought while raising a child is keeping them away from the things that will hurt them. Some dangers are easy to avoid, like locking cleaning products in the cabinets and keeping cosmetics out of reach. Other dangers, however, are more difficult to avoid, like the scary concoction of ingredients in the basic products we use every day, directly harming our children without our knowledge.

Pampers is a popular brand of diapers and baby wipes, and many parents choose Pampers because they want the best for their babies and trust the brand to provide that quality. Unfortunately, Pampers contains a shockingly high amount of known toxic and harmful chemicals, meaning parents are unknowingly applying these chemicals to their baby’s most sensitive skin numerous times a day.

Even the sensitive formula contains multiple chemicals known to be toxic, such as iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate, benzyl alcohol, dimethicone, and PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil. Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate is toxic to organ systems, the ecosystem, and creates many allergies. Sodium hydroxymethylglycinate is known to cause cancer, allergies, and is often contaminated with formaldehyde. Benzyl alcohol and dimethicone are toxic to our immune system and organs, and PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil is usually contaminated with ethylene oxide. These are only some of the main offenders in the sensitive formulation, and the harsher-scented versions include even more dangerous chemicals.

There’s no reason why baby wipes need to be doused in chemicals that cause organ failure. These products are meant for babies, and should be formulated with that in mind. Sign the petition below to demand that Pampers remove all dangerous chemicals from its wipes and help protect the health of children.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Lafley,

It has recently come to attention that Pampers baby wipes contain a high amount of toxic chemicals, including iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate, benzyl alcohol, dimethicone, and PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil. Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate is toxic to organ systems, the ecosystem, and creates many allergies. Sodium hydroxymethylglycinate is known to cause cancer, allergies, and is often contaminated with formaldehyde. Benzyl alcohol and dimethicone are toxic to our immune system and organs, and PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil is usually contaminated with ethylene oxide.

This is completely unacceptable, and I suspect the only reason that people continue to buy Pampers wipes is that there are no warning labels, so most consumers are unaware of the dangers associated with your products.

Pampers is a brand that many parents know and trust, and we demand that the formula be revised to ensure the safety of our families and environment. Please remove all toxic chemicals from your baby wipes and make way for a safer, healthier future for our children.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
