Organic Baby Products
The market for organic baby products is a booming one. With more and more parents turning health and environment conscious, they want to incorporate the same in their children beginning at an early age. Food, clothing, bedding, creams, lotions, and bath soaps, all form part of the growing organic baby products segment. The focus is on being health conscious about not just what you put into your body but also on your body. Organic baby products like all other organic things are free of harsh chemicals and toxins since the ingredients they use are not treated with pesticides or insecticides of any kind.
Statistics provide evidence of the increasing popularity of organic baby products. The organic baby food industry was estimated at over $200 million last year. The sales of organic fibers used in the manufacture of baby clothes and cloth diapers increased by about 40 percent to $40 million during the same period. This increase is despite the fact that organic products, baby or otherwise, are more expensive than their regular counterparts. Experts’ opinion on the benefits of using organic baby products remains divided, but this does not seem to affect parents.
Everyone wants the best for their child even if it involves paying more. They choose to be sensible and choose the things that contain the least amount of harmful substances. Popular retailers have also begun stocking up on organic baby products in an effort to keep their customers coming in through the doors. Many small businesses have realized the profitability in this segment and seek to establish a steady clientele either independently or through bigger stores. As a result many lesser known brands have cropped up in recent times. An increase in production is sure to make prices go down sometime in the near future and this will definitely be a boon to many parents.
