This is a very informative article written by a gynocologist on the dangers of phthalates. Heard the buzz around phthalates, but not sure what they are? Phthalates are plasticizing chemicals that are toxic. Some have been banned in the EU but not in the US. They are hard to detect on the label ingredients because they are often the ‘hidden’ ingredient in the fragrance (according to the FDA). To avoid these toxins make sure that the products clearly state the fragrance used is phthalate-free to protect you and your family. In our products we use essential oils and always phthalate-free fragrances.
