Consumer Tool of the Week:
Pocket Guide for Carcinogens in Personal Care Products
As noted in last week’s Organic Bytes, the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) released a new study that exposes levels of the petrochemical carcinogen 1,4-Dioxane in leading conventional as well as “natural” brands of personal care and household cleaning products. This cancer-causing contaminant is all too frequently found in products directly applied to the skin, but it is not listed on ingredient labels, making it difficult for consumers to avoid potentially dangerous products. To help protect the health of your family and the environment, the OCA’s study results have been put together in a user-friendly printable consumer pocket guide that fits neatly into any wallet.
