This year, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) celebrated their 25th anniversary celebration on March 15th by previewing EWG VERIFIED™ brands including Biossance, isoi, Silk Therapeutics, MyChelle, ATTITUDE, Mineral Fusion and W3LL People.
40 percent of women usually buy products free of parabens, phthalates and sulfates. It has been eighty years since Congress last passed legislation regulating the cosmetics industry. The average woman uses 12 personal products daily and is exposed to hundreds of chemicals - none of which are required to be tested for safety. While other countries have banned almost 1,300 ingredients from use in cosmetics, the U.S. has only banned 11.
EWG is a non-profit organization that empowers people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. EWG specializes in research and advocacy in areas of agricultural subsidies, toxic chemicals, drinking water pollutants and corporate accountability.
EWG VERIFIED™ recognizes products that meet EWG's strictest standards for your health, which means none of EWG's chemicals of concern, full transparency, and a mark you can trust as it is EWG approved. There are about 1185 personal care products that have already met EWG's strictest health criteria.
