join the CLEAN BUM crusade

THE CLEAN BUM CRUSADE IS A CAMPAIGN THAT'S ABOUT TO GIVE THE BABIES OF AUSTRALIA A VOICE...
 The campaign wants to raise awareness of the synthetic chemicals found in conventional skin and body care products in Australia and the risks they pose to our children and secondly to petition governing bodies to raise current Australian product safety standards to those of other first world countries. 

Synthetic chemicals are in most skin and body care products. This ‘toxic goo’ poses a health risk to users especially developing babies and children. In Australia there is an Inventory of Chemical Substances; a list of ingredients that manufacturers and importers utilise in the making of their products. However, there are questionable chemicals on that list considered to be safe by Australian Standards which are banned in other countries because of concerns about toxicity.

Why are Australian babies exposed to these chemicals while there is uncertainty about their toxicity? 

Unbelievable! To make a difference, become a ‘Crusades’ on facebook. By joining the crusade you will be asking for: an immediate ban on those chemicals already banned in other countries until an assessment can be done; a list of the other synthetic chemicals under review and that it be easily accessible by all; and, for legislation to mandate that all information required to be displayed on cosmetic and personal care product packaging be displayed clearly with products sold online.
