A few years ago, the FDA issued a warning to parents that natural beauty products were no longer safe.
Now, they have finally issued a second warning, this time to parents who have a baby with a genetic condition.
The FDA’s new warning came in response to reports from a group of parents, medical professionals and a few celebrities, including actress Rosario Dawson.
The family had tried to make natural beauty treatments, such as a water-based facial mask and a water bottle, for a child with Down syndrome.
The family, however, wasn’t happy with the results.
A doctor who treats Down syndrome patients, Dr. David G. Hartman, told the family that the products weren’t safe and that there was a chance that the baby could develop a serious medical condition.
Hartman’s advice was that the family should stop making the products and that they should try using a homemade one that uses the ingredients that have been shown to be safe.
The FDA has yet to issue a ruling.
“If you have a child who has a genetic disorder, they will always have some sort of health issue that comes along with it,” Hartman told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer.
Hartmen said the FDA had to issue the warning because the products were too complicated to make in a factory.
“There’s not enough information in the FDA’s guidance to say, ‘We’ve had enough of you.
Just stop making this stuff,'” Hartman said.
The company behind the mask and bottle, Naturalista, says the products are safe.
But Hartman says that there are a number of ingredients that could cause the baby to develop an adverse reaction.
Naturalista has released a statement saying it is sorry for any harm this has caused to the families.
Hartmen said that the company was looking into the reports.
“I want to reassure the families that we are very confident in the products we make and that we do our best to make safe products,” Hartmen told ABCNews.com.
“We also want to make sure that any products that are sold by our suppliers do not contain ingredients that are potentially unsafe for our patients or to the public.
