Most personal care products on the market today are made with chemicals that were introduced several decades ago. Since then, scientists have found that many of these chemicals are related to cancer, asthma, birth defects and fertility problems. Some of these chemicals are in products we use every single day – our shampoo, our soap, our furniture, our mattresses. In many cases, manufacturers don’t even have to list their ingredients on their packages or websites, so there’s no way for you to know what you’re really getting.
Since 1993, the Environmental Working Group has tracked chemical safety, and has called out bad chemicals and the companies that use them. The EWG VERIFIED™ mark ensures a product is free from EWG’s chemicals of concern and meets their strictest standards for your health. As of today, 2169 products have been approved for the EWG VERIFIED™ mark.
