Common Chemicals in Diapers

I was going to take the list of chemicals that are in Pampers disposable diapers and research them. However, since Pampers does not want to give that information, I will use the list of chemicals provided by LiveStrong instead. There list includes those chemicals that are commonly used in diapers. This does not mean they are used in every diaper, but are commonly used in disposable diapers.

Here is the list:
1) Dioxin
2) Tributyl-tin (TBT)
3) sodium polyacrylate
4) Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
5) dyes, fragrances, plastics and petrolatums

Tomorrow I will start with Dioxin!

**Any disposable diaper company that does not use these chemicals feel free to email me a list of the ingredients that you do use-
