The Dirt on Cleaning Products

Did you know...cleaning product companies can keep toxic chemicals that could impact your health a secret from you?

  • APEs are linked to reproductive harm and fertility problems
  • Phthalates are linked to genital malformations in baby boys, reduced sperm count, and increased asthma and allergic reactions in children
  • Triclosan is hormone disruption and increased risk of breast cancer
  • Synthetic musks are bioaccumulative, showing up in blood, breast milk, and infants, and may break down our bodies’ defenses against other toxic exposures.
