Johnson’s Baby Shampoo is a product that has been known and trusted for many years. Good for not only children but pets and other uses, the shampoo has “No more tears” written on the label. Ingredients in this brand of shampoo are formulated so that it will not burn or sting the eyes. In fact it advertises to be as safe to the eyes as water. Both of their baby shampoos are soap-free, dermatologist-tested and hypoallergenic.
