Even though Johnson is one of the oldest companies producing baby products, people still have doubts about its quality. A lot of people claim that Johnson products are not good for babies. To find out the reality, we purchased a 100ml pack of Johnson’s Baby top-to-toe bath. So, let’s start the review.
Things that I liked in the Johnson's Baby Top-to-Toe Bath
The packing of Johnson’s Baby top-to-toe bath packing is very simple. The product comes in a transparent bottle made of plastic.
At the front, you can see the branding. Other than branding, you won’t find any information on the front.
This is actually strange because the products made for babies have a lot of information to share, and to do so, manufacturers use every corner of the packaging. But, in this case, there was nothing.
In addition, the information printed on the back was very difficult to read. The overlapped text was making it tougher.
Other than price, there was information about ingredients used, applying method, and how this product is free from harmful chemicals.

Overall, I did not find the packing much attractive and informative.
You can use Johnson’s Baby top-to-toe bath as shampoo and body wash.
It not only saves you money, but you can save yourself from buying two different products. This is a plus point.
A No-Tears Product
While bathing a baby, you cannot prevent shampoo from going in your baby’s eyes. This eventually leads to irritation in the eyes and hence can cause discomfort to the baby.
But, being a no-tears, you can use Johnson’s Baby top-to-toe bath without worrying too much. This is an amazing thing.
The texture of Johnson’s Baby Top-To-Toe Bath is completely transparent.
In short, the texture is very smooth and soft.
Let us now talk about the ingredients. First of all, I would like to talk about COCOAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE. This is actually a fatty acid derived from coconut oil. And we all know about the benefits of coconut oil.
PEG-150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate is also considered a safe to use chemical. This is used to enhance viscosity in cosmetic products.
Decyl Glucoside is a natural, non-ionic surfactant, which is used in almost every bathing and cleaning product. It is used especially in products made for people with sensitive skin.
Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate is the salt of coconut fatty acids. It is a soft white paste and is obtained from coconut. According to the experts, this is a safe-to-use product.
Parabens, Phthalates And Dyes Free
Johnson’s Baby top-to-toe bath contains no harmful chemicals.
The picture above clearly states that parabens, phthalates, and Dyes have not been used in it.

Things I Disliked in Johnson's Baby Top-To-Toe
No Pump in Small Packing
If you buy a small pack (100 or 200 ml) of Johnson’s Baby Top-To-Toe Bath, then you won’t find any pump attached to it.
The pump comes with only 500 ml bottle. Hence, to extract the shampoo, you have to do it by pressing the lid from the back of the bottle.
This is not very difficult, however, a pump will be really appreciated.
The Seal Was Broken
On websites like Amazon, people have complained about receiving a broken seal pack.
We had the same experience. As you can see in the picture below, the seal is broken.
Hence, we can say that the product remains susceptible to adulteration. This is a negative aspect of packing.
The Information Printed is Hard To Read
Every piece of information given at the back of the packing is very difficult to read.
Specifically, the information related to the application of the product and the ingredients used in it.
Presence of PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate
According to experts, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate is one of the harmful chemicals. There is evidence of allergic and toxicity. Should you see the ingredients list given at the back of the packing, you will learn about its presence. Therefore, we do not recommend buying this product.
Presence of Sodium Benzoate And Citric Acid
Although sodium benzoate is considered safe, the problem occurs when it comes in combination with citric acid and/or ascorbic acid (vitamin C). When they meet together, they produce benzene, which causes cancer.
If you read the ingredient list, you will find that sodium benzoate and citric acid have been used in Johnson’s Baby top-to-toe bath. Therefore, this product can cause harm.
Use of Fragrance
The fragrance has been used in the Johnson’s Baby top-to-toe bath. Often companies producing children’s products use such artificial fragrances to hide the stench of chemicals used in such products.
Do you know that no company can be held responsible for not telling you what chemicals they have used for this fragrance? We have discussed this in several articles that sharp odors are not good for newborns. Hence, we do not recommend buying this product.
The odor is Very Sharp
The fragrance has been used in the Johnson’s Baby top-to-toe bath. Perhaps that’s why it smells so strong. To use such an artificial fragrance in a product made for children is not right.
Presence of Phenoxyethanol
Phenoxyethanol is used in Johnson’s Baby top-to-toe bath. Although it is used as a stabilizer in almost all beauty products and perfume etc., phenoxyethanol is still a very harmful chemical.
How To Apply Johnson's Baby Top-to-Toe Bath
The right way to apply Johnson’s Baby top-to-toe bath is given at the back of the bottle.
Avoid putting it directly on the baby’s head.
Rather, you should wet the child’s body and head with lukewarm water.
To apply shampoo, first, pour some on your hand and then, apply it on the body or hair of the baby.
Be gentle when applying. You do not have to put excessive pressure.
Keep in mind that excessive pressure or harsh rubbing will cause damage to the baby’s skin.
Apart from all this, there are some other things that you have to take special care of. To know all about these, you must watch our videos given below.
