Reducing Your Exposure

Breast Cancer Action (BCA) has an extensive list of manufactures who have signed the BCA pledge to be Paraben and Phthalate free. Check out their site for the complete listing. We have included some of the companies listed by BCA and also a few additional ones. We have also checked each one against the EWG Skin Deep Database that scores cosmetics based on toxic levels found during testing. We have provided the EWG scores when available.


We encourage you to look up the products you use every day, including ones for children using the Skin Deep Database. Don't be afraid to spend a little more on a safer product. The old saying "you get what you pay for" holds true for cosmetics. The more pure and less toxic the product, the less you really need to use (a little goes a long way) and your purchases will last longer. Check out our cosmetic page for a list of chemicals to avoid in your products.



Here is a list of manufacturers who are committed to putting less chemicals into their products. Let us know which ones are your favorites.
