I saw Method's new line for baby products... So far I haven't been too impressed with the ingredient list in most of the Method products I have seen, so I was doing some checking on these new items. They claim they are 95% natural, so can someone help me with which ingredients are no good?
Diaper Cream
Active ingredient: Zinc Oxide 10%
Inactive ingredients:
athaea officinalis extra
caprylic/capric triglyceride
cetyl alchol
cetyl
hydoxyethylcellulose
decylene glycol
dimethicone
glycerin
helianthus annuus seed oil
oryza sativa bran extract
oryza sativa
germ oil
phenoxyethanol
polysorbate 60
sorbitane stearate
water
xanthan gum

Baby Lotion
water
sucrose stearate
cetyl alcohol
isostearyl neopentanoate
olea europaea fruit oil
sclerotum gum
glycerin
dimethicone
athaea officinalis extract
oryza sativa germ oil
oryza sativa bran extract
gluconolactone
sodium benzoate
calcium gluconate
parfum

I went through and looked each of these ingredients up, but, I can honestly say that it confused me even more. What are the red flags in products?

for me dimethicone. polysorbate 60, and fragrance/parfum are red flags here.
i don't understand how some companies can market thier products as natural and still contain these ingredients .

Thanks for the advice! Before I started learning about all the harmful toxins, if I read that a product was natural on the label- I believed it! Now I am trying to read all labels and target harmful ingredients. The are big words though! And a little hard to learn which are which!

You can look up each ingredient at http://www.cosmeticdatabase.com/ and it will give you the potential hazards and studies about it's safety/non-safety. They have MANY products in their database already and for those, you don't have to look up each ingredient. But, it doesn't seem like the Method Baby line is there yet, so you'll have to do it one by one....
