According to Jeremiah McElwee, Senior Global Whole Body Coordinator, it is important to a baby’s health to choose products carefully:
  • Baby skin is the most sensitive and helps regulate body temperature, hydrate, and protect internal organs.
  • The skin is the largest detoxification organ in the body.
  • Artificial colors, preservatives, and scents can cause irritation, especially for babies.
Premium body care is a standard developed by Whole Foods Market for our vendor partners:
  • The premium body care standards make it easier to choose products like baby lotions, oils, powders, wipes and washes.
