Know What's in Your Personal Care Products
Starting a new year always makes one think about the changes possible in one's daily life. At Seventh Generation we have always held the principle of ingredient disclosure in our products as a basic tenant of our business. To help you get the information on product ingredients in personal care products, we suggest the following sites:
- The Skin Deep Database created by the Environmental Working Group, which helps identify safe cosmetics
- The Campaign For Safe Cosmetics, dedicated to eliminating harmful chemicals in personal care products
- The Good Guide, helping you find safe, healthy and green products based on scientific ratings
- The Breast Cancer Fund, working to eliminate toxins which increase the risk of cancer
As consumers, we have the power to make changes to the world in which we live. By demanding "safe" products we will be able to make a difference.
