Moar, can I have nail polish on?
Most mothers of probably primarily girls, have probably heard this question several times. Although the first thought is probably that a little make-up, nail polish or a fake tattoo can be quite harmless, it is important to be aware that make-up, nail polish, hair color and children's tattoos usually contain a lot of chemistry. And of the many ingredients that are in beauty products, there are unfortunately several that are allergenic.
Allergy for the rest of life
With skin allergies - or contact allergies, as they are also called - it is the case that the more you expose yourself or your children to the allergenic substances, including perfume, the greater the risk of developing allergies. If you have first developed a contact allergy, there is a very high probability that it will be persistent, usually for the rest of your life, as allergies very rarely disappear again.
Contact allergy is i.a. characterized by a delayed reaction. It is often the case that the body only reacts several days later to the allergenic substance with which one has been in contact.
Children are vulnerable
There can be no doubt that both children and adults should avoid the harmful and allergenic substances and chemicals in e.g. beauty products. At the same time, however, it is also the case that children are more vulnerable to the drugs than adults are, as they are growing and thus not fully developed yet. The harmful chemistry can therefore have a very inappropriate effect on children, i.a. It is suspected that endocrine disruptors can lead to early puberty, poor sperm quality and testicular cancer.
Harmful chemistry in toy products
Although there are many beauty products and toy kits on the market that are directly aimed at children and young people, there is unfortunately no guarantee that there are no harmful chemicals in the products. In fact, many of the products that are directly aimed at children contain both perfumes, allergens and other harmful chemicals.
Are there products for children without harmful ingredients?
Yes, it does. FABLAB is the only one in the world to have allergy-certified three different beauty kits for children.
