The New JOHNSON’S® has reformulated its range of products, inside and out, focusing on purposeful ingredients and complete ingredient transparency to respond to the ever-changing demands of parents and need of babies from around the world. Our Parenting World – OPW Media team recently visited ‘The House of New Johnson’ to witness the launch of its new line of products that now has over 50% lesser ingredients, with no added parabens, phthalates, sulfates, dyes and fragrance allergens. The ingredients are assessed and have undergone a rigorous 5-step safety-assurance process, promising parents a greater piece of mind that come with new packaging design. We are excited to see and try out the new Johnson’s that we have grew up with and now our children are also using Johnson’s.

Purposeful ingredient choice
