Expat insurance customers may wish to use organic baby products when cleaning their infants, as youngsters can be sensitive to chemicals.
This is according to Ruth Styles, green living editor at The Ecologist, who admitted: "There's no proper figures for how many toxins children absorb through [a child's] skin."
However, she argued many mothers and fathers will feel "it's better to be safe than sorry".
The expert noted baby skin can as much as five times thinner than that of their parents, which could mean it is easier for chemicals to seep into it.
Generally, skin is porous, so when baby creams or bubble baths are used all over the body there is a higher risk of something unpleasant soaking in than if cleaning products are used in one place, she declared.
Organic products do not have as many synthetics, parabens or pesticide residues, Ms Styles pointed out.
Hypoallergenic products ought to be used when bathing babies, author of Child Sense Priscilla J Dunstan recently wrote in the McClatchy-Tribune.
